Present at the Paris Agricultural Show on Friday March 3, the Minister of Justice defended farmers in the face of complaints for noise pollution to which they are subject from the neighborhood, reports BFMTV. A bill will be introduced on this subject.
“Don’t piss off working people.“The Minister of Justice, Éric Dupond-Moretti, made a remarkable outing on Friday March 3 during his trip to the Paris Agricultural Show.
A statement which comes as the Keeper of the Seals announced a bill aimed at avoiding the “false lawsuits” of farmers in the face of noise pollution, explains BFM TV. “The Parisian who has just settled near a farm is a bucolic dream which, for him, turns into a nightmare when he hears the rooster crow.“, he had fun, at the stand of the agricultural union of the FNSEA.
Numerous neighborhood affairs in recent years
Several cases had indeed made people talk, in particular that of a rooster owner in Ariège who faced complaints from a neighbor exasperated by the songs of the animal. In May 2020, in a similar case, a man residing in Ardèche had even killed his neighbor’s rooster, recalls the news channel.
“The agricultural world, yes there is noise, people who get up in the morning, leave with the tractor, and who forbid others to sleep in“, continued the former lawyer in a tone of mockery. His bill nevertheless seems to duplicate a legal provision already in force: since January 2021, the sounds and smells of the countryside can no longer be the subject of a complaint. For “abnormal neighborhood disturbances“. The minister also mentioned a “help“given to farmers, via a bill”on civil liability“.
