A 19-year-old from Marseille attempted to enter the hospital for a medical examination showing a Green Pass with President Emmanuel Macron’s QR code. The code ended up on social media in mid-September and the president has since received a new one. The young man, reports the Acu17 website, had used the president’s code to make a Green Pass. The security forces noticed immediately and stopped the boy.
Arrested, the 19-year-old defended himself by saying he did it as a joke. He will also have to pay a fine “for presenting a third party’s health document during access controls to a place as part of the fight against the spread of the epidemic”.
