A whole account and chronology of accidents within the viewfinder of the RMC Sport cameras

It was a night marked by recent occasions on a soccer pitch that noticed OGC Good in opposition to Cologne within the Europa League Convention on Thursday evening. Because of the cameras of RMC Sport, the match announcer, we had been capable of hint the chain of occasions to attempt to perceive the failures.

RMC Sport reviewed all of its cameras positioned yesterday in Good to attempt to perceive the circumstances of the occasions contained in the sports activities enclosure. Cologne supporters had been greater than 8000 current at Ray’s sales space. Good reserved this half as a way to guarantee optimum safety and to keep away from individuals within the different stands of the stadium.

One aspect is obvious when wanting on the photographs: Cologne followers have easy accessibility to the Fashionable South sales space from Ray’s stand through Segurane (the VIP aspect space). No filter, simply dozens of safety guards and a low wall. In a press launch printed on Friday, Good Eco Stadium (NES), the stadium’s operator, confirmed that it had not obtained “any written or oral request from the membership inclined to alter the division of the stands”. In keeping with our info, the prefecture really helpful to the organizer to strengthen the separation at this assembly.

On the Garibaldi platform, the state of affairs is completely different. Cologne supporters had been stopped by the home windows which might be normally the guests’ parking zone. No contact between the 2 events on this space, simply throwing projectiles. For accidents inside a sports activities enclosure, the photographs could appear lengthy however all of the motion takes place in lower than thirty minutes.

One other aspect, after seeing these footage, we are able to see that the police lastly stepped in in a short time. The police don’t management the safety contained in the sports activities area. It intervenes when the state of affairs is not manageable by the SS. DNLH tracksuit cops intervene first, even earlier than Good followers arrive, however only a few in entrance of a whole bunch of Cologne supporters. There’s lower than 10 minutes between the primary motion of the Cologne crowd and the primary CRS in regulation enforcement uniforms (others will intervene earlier than however with fewer assets). The assembly is rated 3 out of 5 by the DNLH.

In keeping with police sources at RMC Sport, negotiations have been “tough” to get the CRS contained in the case. Wanting on the photographs, the “preventing” sequence between the 2 events lasts not more than 4 minutes. An necessary aspect in gentle of those pictures is that the hosts, as occurred through the Stade de France occasions final Could, seem confused and insufficient within the face of the attackers.

Inadequate variety of referees, the lanes between the stands are simply accessible. The Allianz Riviera specifically noticed fairly just a few supporters of Cologne (between 100 and 150 with reference to footage) with a transparent want to need to contact the individuals of Good. The Germans apparently waged hostilities over the accessible pictures, and a few Good supporters responded. A few of the footage are very violent.
