On Tuesday, December 13, the home of Yannick Rousselet, a nuclear campaigner for Greenpeace France, was searched by officials from the Directorate General of Internal Security (DGSI). According to Yannick Rousselet, they acted "by order of the public prosecutor of the Republic of Paris". At the origin of the search, a complaint lodged by Christophe Quintin, senior official of defense for national security, and Christian Riac, brigadier general, national responsible for nuclear security.

"Everything is gone," said the anti-nuclear leader: phones, computers, external hard drives, USB sticks and SD cards. Yannick Rousselet was served a summons to custody for interrogation without much more precision, except for the following reason: "compromise of the secrecy of the National Defense".

The Greenpeace organization denounces an "extremely blurry situation" and recalls that "Yannick Rousselet is not only a campaigner for Greenpeace France but also a member appointed by the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy Transparency and Nuclear Security Information and member of several Local Information Commissions ". "Greenpeace has nothing to hide," adds the anti-nuclear organization, and asks the "exact reasons" of this search.
