In the early Saturday evening, Friborg cantonal police intervened in a forest in Belfaux FR to stop an illegal event. The organizers were identified and reported.
On Saturday evening, the Friborg cantonal police stopped an illegal event in a forest in Belfaux, Friborg, on the orders of the prefecture authorities.
Kapo came out with 15 patrols. In view of the recent events, the Friborg police have probably prepared for a larger operation, …
… On May 27, the police had to go to the festival in Montagny-les-Monts in the Broye district. There, the operation was less smooth.
The event was to be held in the woods in Belfaux, Friborg, on Whit Saturday. However, since the operators were not allowed to enter the festival, the police intervened just before nine in the evening. Kapo Freiburg ended the illegal event with 15 patrols. This was before the party could really begin: at the time of the intervention, there were only about 20 party guests on site. Most of the participants still came, the police said. However, various items were confiscated during the police operation: “It was found on the spot that there was extensive infrastructure in place with a mixer, speakers and a bar,” he says.
Zero tolerance for the police
According to the police, the party organizers, who could be found quickly, were ready to cooperate: “The intervention was quiet and in good conversation with the people present,” said the capo. The facilities were demolished by a party branch under the supervision of the police, and the original condition of the facility was restored. The organizers have been notified. For Kapo Freiburg it is clear: “Such wild parties will not be tolerated in our territory.”
Second case within days
Anyone with information about such incidents or observing the organization of another illegal event is asked to report it to the Cantonal Police at any time. It seems the Freiburg police are on standby at the moment: the second event in a few days should have been held illegally in Freiburg. On early Thursday morning, May 27, police were forced to attend the Montagny-les-Monts festival in the Broye district. There, the party was already in full swing when the patrols arrived – around 3,000 visitors were expected for the entire rave.
The eviction was less peaceful than it is now in Belfaux: stones and bottles were thrown at the police in attempts to negotiate. Thanks to a coordinated operation that lasted until Friday afternoon, the party was finally over.
