The verdict before the end of the month. France Inter comedian Guillaume Meurice, suspended for three weeks pending possible dismissal, is summoned to a disciplinary committee on May 30 at 2:30 p.m. by the human resources department of Radio France, he said. announced Wednesday. “The sanction envisaged is early termination for serious misconduct” of his employment contract, he is reminded in his summons. However, “no final sanction decision” will be “notified less than two working days after the commission is held”.

Guillaume Meurice was removed from the air on May 2, four days after having reiterated his controversial comments about Benjamin Netanyahu made at the end of October. He had compared the Israeli Prime Minister to a “kind of Nazi but without a foreskin”, which had earned him accusations of anti-Semitism and a complaint, recently dismissed.

Lack of “loyalty to one’s employer”

The comedian was accompanied by a South union representative during his preliminary interview on Thursday May 16. At the end of this interview, the union explained that Guillaume Meurice was accused of having repeated his controversial remarks “knowing that Arcom (the audiovisual regulator) had sent Radio France a warning remains” the first time.

Thus, the columnist would have “lacked loyalty to his employer” and would have done so “in order to serve personal interests”, reports Sud, which disputes this. “The HR department of Radio France has sufficient elements to waive a sanction which could go as far as early termination of the employment contract,” believes the union.

A strike against the suspension of Guillaume Meurice had prevented the broadcast of Charline Vanhoenacker’s show on Sunday, May 12, of which he is a part, and disrupted the station’s programs during the day.
