A French Jewish police officer found swastikas and “dirty Jew” scrawled on his locker at his police precinct.
The officer, who is part of an elite unit based south-west of Paris, discovered the antisemitic vandalism earlier this month.
The Jewish officer filed a police complaint and the incident is the subject of an internal probe. A French antisemitism watchdog (BNVCA) that was contacted by the officer said that the perpetrator was likely to be a fellow police officer.
The founder of BNVCA, Sammy Ghozlan, a former police commissioner, described the incident as “extremely serious” , as it undermined the Jewish community’s trust in the police who are entrusted, he said, with protecting citizens against antisemitism.
