3 good reflexes against street robbery

3 good reflexes against street robbery

Posted on December 21, 2015

Updated December 30, 2022

1 – Use your cell phone wisely

The smartphone is today the source of most thefts. Expensive (600 to 800 euros), these phones are very easy to resell on the parallel market.

What can happen to you?

Just before the train doors close, a thug snatches it out of your hands. While you are calling in the street, people on scooters approach you to steal it. While you have a coffee on the terrace, you leave your phone on the table…

Advice from a field police officer

Don't show off your phone, especially if it's a coveted Apple iPhone-type model. Avoid calling while walking, your attention span is too limited. Otherwise, always bring the phone closer to the wall, you will complicate or even prohibit the “work” of thieves who will not be able to get through. When not in use, never leave your phone in sight.

How to react if the damage has already been done

Inform your operator to block your line. Otherwise, out-of-package communications (calls and Internet connections) consumed between the time of flight and line blocking will remain your responsibility. Unless you have specific insurance that covers this cost (with a limit of €1,500 to €3,000 depending on the contract).

Keep your phone's IMEI identification number to notify your operator in case of theft. You can disable it remotely and the device will be unusable for the thief. This 15-digit number appears on your purchase invoice, on the box label, or by typing *#06# on your keyboard.

2 – Monitor bag, wallet and jewelry

After the telephone, and with the price of gold at its highest (more than 30 euros per gram of gold), jewelry thefts are increasing. Handbags also remain popular.

What can happen to you?

You carry your purse or bag carelessly on your shoulder in a public place. Or because they saw you withdrawing money from an ATM or even because you are wearing jewelry in a conspicuous way, criminals decide to take it from you.

Advice from a field police officer

Consider using a bag hook, a small and practical accessory to hang on any table and prevent someone clever from stealing it by slipping it between your feet or lifting it off the back of your chair. When walking, carry the bag preferably on your shoulder and always towards the wall, to avoid being snatched.

How to react if the damage has already been done

Start by screaming, even if it means appearing hysterical. This attitude can destabilize the thief and prompt the assistance of a citizen. Don't resist too much, your physical integrity is worth more than your effects. And of course, file a complaint giving as much detail as possible. The witnesses will be valuable to the investigation.

3 – Be careful with the point theft ploy

This is a recent variant of theft by deception in which older people are the preferred target.

What can happen to you?

One or two people tell you about a huge stain on your clothes. This is an excuse to harass you. When trying to clean up the mess (which of course they made themselves), they take the opportunity to pick your pockets. Goodbye wallet, phone…

Advice from a field police officer

Don't accept any help, even if it seems sincere. And don't take off your coat, it will disappear immediately. It is better to pay for dry cleaning. These people operate in crowded places to drown in the crowds. Large-scale shopping malls.

How to react if the damage has already been done

Try to memorize the most accurate description of your thieves and call the emergency police on 17. The chances of finding your belongings depend on the speed of the intervention. Present your means of payment (bank card and checkbook) to your bank and file a complaint.

Confidentiality of Consultations with Corporate Lawyers: Vane's Lawyer vs. the Law

Confidentiality of Consultations with Corporate Lawyers: Vane's Lawyer vs. the Law

This is the proposed law that Vannes Bar lawyers do not want. This Tuesday, April 30, the National Assembly will discuss a law aimed at guaranteeing the confidentiality of legal advice given by in-house lawyers. The Senate has already passed it. But the Vannes Bar, like 163 other provincial bars, accepted the petition against him.

“Breach of equality between litigants”

“Such a law seriously and dangerously undermines the essential principles of not only the legal profession, but also the equality of all before the law,” he believes. Delphine Dejoy-Roussel, President of the Vannes Bar. Lawyers fear the consolidation of business secrets and believe that this text “will create a violation of equality between litigants depending on whether they are in a company with a lawyer.”

Lawyers are particularly concerned that it will be difficult for employees to produce internal documents, face industrial tribunals, be under cover of secrecy and the possibility of “indicting whistleblowers who undermine this new internal secrecy”. They still see “unfair competition against business lawyers” and an open door to “corporate lawyer” status, which the profession opposes.

TVO and TFO coordinate the online lessons

Until August 21, telecommunications companies, municipalities, indigenous communities and non-profit organizations are invited to present innovative proposals and use their investments, expertise and experience to improve connectivity.

The $150 million in funding is part of a $315 million plan to attract $1 billion in investments to enable more people to “work from home more effectively , engage in online learning and stay in touch with family and friends.”

Construction code

The Ford government wants updating the building code to be “easier and quicker” to “respond more quickly to the needs of the construction sector.” In particular, we want to align the Ontario Code with the Federal Code and reduce interprovincial trade barriers.

Water supply

Working with the agri-food sector, we will seek to reduce drainage regulations (which help prevent flooding) “while maintaining environmental regulations that ensure the safety and health of Ontarians.”

And the work of implementing municipal wastewater and stormwater infrastructure projects will be “eased” by a single, consolidated environmental permitting process for municipal projects. “Routine and simple municipal works could be approved in advance without the need for separate approval on a case-by-case basis.”

Information about your rights

If you are looking for information about your rights, you can first call 30 39, the single number for accessing rights, or go to a nearest “justice point”. These are reception areas that are free and open to everyone.

Several speakers are present: legal professionals, but also associations, justice conciliators, delegates of the Defender of Rights, etc. To find the “point-justice” near you, click here.

Courts and laws near you

Also free and open to all, the houses of justice and law (MJD), which are part of these “justice points”. “They offer additional services compared to point-justice.” Vous pouvez vous y rendre: pour être accompagné si vous êtes victime ou temoin d’une infraction, si vous souhaitez résoudre un conflit à l’amiable ou encore pour connaître l’état d’avancement de votre civil procedure », liste le site du Ministry of Justice.

The name “point-justice” brings together public organizations and private associations that organize free legal assistance telephone lines to inform the public about their rights and guide them in their procedures. The offices of the “justice points” are located in places belonging to the different associated organizations (communal social action centers, French services, penitentiary establishments, etc.). The organization of “punctual justice” varies depending on the territory.

The official website of the French administration.

But be careful, these associative consultations or at the “justice points” are usually limited to one hour. Although they may be able to answer some of your questions or even find solutions, they do not provide long-term support if, for example, you have to face criminal proceedings.

Cities, bar associations, consumer associations

Some cities also organize free consultations with lawyers. To find out the practical details, you must access your local council’s website.

Bar associations also organize free consultations. They are held in different places: bar headquarters, town hall, court, etc. Please note that they are sometimes reserved for people with low incomes. Learn more on your local bar association’s website before you travel.

Some consumer associations also offer their members free consultations with a lawyer.

If you have any problems related to labor law, you can also seek help from unions. Some unions offer their members free consultations with lawyers.

A piece of advice, also look at your insurance contract.

And think about your insurance too! Many contracts provide for free consultation of lawyers, through the guarantee of legal protection.

If the dispute requires the assistance of a lawyer, contracts may provide for reimbursement of costs, through the defense resource guarantee. But the reimbursement is limited to disputes related to the area covered by the insurance and the amount of reimbursement has a limit. This is particularly the case with home, automobile and personal accident insurance contracts.

Legal assistance

Under certain conditions, mainly income, it is also possible to have access to a lawyer free of charge or at a lower cost during the proceedings initiated in which you must assert your rights. Subject to the conditions of the appeal, you may request legal assistance.

In this case, it is the State that covers the expenses of the procedure on your behalf and the expenses of the public defender assigned to you. Please note that you will not receive any money, the aid will be used to directly pay legal costs.

How does legal aid work?

The assistance does not take into account the right to plead, as well as the costs that the sentence may order you to pay.

A circular from the Minister of Justice of January 17, 2024 increased the amount of the maximum limits of resources and assets for admission to this legal aid. These new ceilings were calculated using the consumer price index updated in December 2023.

This support covers the following costs:

  • Payment of fees of lawyers, notaries and judicial commissioners;
  • The costs of summoning a justice commissioner to initiate judicial proceedings;
  • Expenses related to carrying out the judicial procedure (expertise, social investigation, etc.)
  • Expenses related to the execution of the judicial decision (costs of notification or seizure by a judicial commissioner).

For applications submitted before January 18, 2024, the maximum limits taken into account are those of 2023. In accordance with the decree of December 28, 2020, three types of maximum limits must be respected to be entitled to the free legal assistance. Exceeding even one of these limits means non-admission. These three types of limits refer to: resources, personal property and real property.

New resource caps in 2024

To be eligible for legal aid, the applicant’s reference tax income listed in the tax notice (as of 2023) must be less than or equal to €12,712 for full legal aid and €19,066 for legal aid .

For tax households composed of more than seven people, the maximum resource limits are increased by €1,445 per additional person.

Maximum limits relating to real estate assets? Real estate assets are valued without taking into account the habitual residence or the property intended for professional use.

To be eligible, the applicant must have real estate assets of less than 38,132 euros. This limit increases depending on the composition of the tax household. In addition, for tax households made up of more than seven people, the maximum resource limits are increased by 4,336 euros per additional person.
