“The judicial institution is a real tramp”, denounces Monday February 24 on franceinfo the lawyer Caroline Mecary, member of the union of lawyers of France. “It was Madame Belloubet and the previous Keepers of the Seals who failed to defend the justice budget who led to this considerable degradation”, she tackles. Lawyers blocked the entrance to the Paris court on Monday to protest against the pension reform project, after already six weeks of mobilization.

“We too are taking out our 49.3, that is to say the impossibility of entering this palace”, explains the lawyer. This reform, according to Caroline Mecary, “For lawyers, it’s completely unfair”. Their autonomous scheme will integrate the universal scheme, contributions will double. “It will lead to a third of the profession going out of business”, assures Caroline Mecary.

The solutions proposed by the Minister of Justice do not find a favorable echo. “Madame Belloubet, for two months, pretends to dialogue, pretends to offer us solutions”, says Caroline Mecary. She believes that the minister “Makes fun of the world”.
