The Belgian interior minister, Jan Jambon, would like to study the issue of a ban on taking pictures of police officers out of concern for their safety. This ban will not improve their safety. This ban violates several fundamental democratic principles. Some policemen behave in such an intimidating way that even journalists believe it is forbidden to film, which is not true. A ban on taking pictures of policemen means a return to censorship and a blow to freedom of expression, for which cartoonists of Charlie Hebdo died.
