French President Emmanuel Macron has filed a complaint against a tabloid journalist for “harassment and attempted invasion of privacy”.

The French leader is on holiday in Marseilles with his wife. The Elysee’s communication department said: “From time to time, the President went out, and this photographer followed him several times on a motorcycle. Security asked him several times not to do it, but he continued, sometimes at his own risk and peril.”

“On Sunday, he entered private property, which led to a complaint for ‘harassment and attempted invasion of privacy”. The complaint has been filed on behalf of the President,” a spokesperson said.

The photographer was reportedly held for about six hours in police custody on Sunday at a Marseille police station. He was released after “the usual verifications,” a police source said. The Elysée has denied pressurising television teams posted in front of the house occupied by the Macrons.
