The incident arose when the police attempted to check the woman's
identity. Police officer Roland Thiébault :"Her husband refused to let
us carry out an identity check invoking the woman's human rights. The
couple became more and more aggressive and then a bystander intervened.
This person too created a serious disturbance on the public highway. The
three people were then taken to the police station to check the woman's
identity and draw up a police report. There was a violation of the ban
on wearing the burqa. Resistance was offered to police officers. There
was slander and threats were issued at the police."
