QuotePresident Emmanuel Macron's government wants to end a 14-month 'state of emergency' in France, but at the same time integrate several of its exceptional anti-terrorism powers into common law, alarming judges and civil liberty groups.Warrant-less property searches and house arrests, two controversial measures currently used by French security officials under special state of emergency powers, could become ordinary policing practices under a new bill being sponsored by the country's new government.The text was submitted for review to the Council of State, a body providing legal advice to France's executive branch, on Wednesday, with excerpts published by leading French daily Le Monde. "Almost all of the state of emergency measures will become the law of the land," the newspaper, which had seen a copy of the bill, wrote.France granted the police special powers in the wake of multiple deadly terrorist attacks over the past two and a half years. Former president François Hollande originally declared the state of emergency in November 2015, when jihadists killed 130 people in simultaneous attacks across the Paris area.The new bill would also normalise banning protest marches, shutting down places of worship suspected of sharing extremist views, forcing people under house arrest to give police access to their electronic devices and using electronic tagging for purposes of surveillance.
