Two men have been jailed for assaulting a relative of the French president’s wife, Brigitte Macron.

One of the two men, a 20-year-old, was sentenced to a year in prison, and the other, a 34-year-old man, was sentenced to 15 months. A third defendant, 22, was acquitted.

On May 15, Jean-Baptiste Trogneau – nephew of Birgitte Macron – was attacked by anti-government protesters as he was on his way home from his family’s chocolate shop to his apartment in Amiens.

According to the victim’s father, Jean-Alexandre Trogneau, the 30-year-old son was beaten in several places on his body and allegedly broke several ribs and suffered a head injury. The father also stated that the attackers insulted “the president, his wife and his family” before fleeing.

French politicians condemned the attack on Jean-Baptiste Trugneau, including President Emmanuel Macron, calling the incident “unacceptable”.

Four other people arrested in the case were released after questioning. The trial of a 16-year-old girl, who has also been charged, will be held later in the Juvenile Court.
