French govt will not share names of terror suspects with mayors

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve has ruled out sharing details of individuals on the intelligence services’ watch list with town mayors, he told weekly newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche.

Suspects on the so-called “Fiche S” watch list are “under surveillance but not under official investigation because they have not been proven to have committed any offence”, Cazeneuve told the Sunday newspaper. “Keeping this information confidential is essential if investigations are to run their course.”
