The Court was told that the two young men from Ariane assaulted the officers on Saturday, January 14, near La Rascasse where they had come to celebrate a birthday.

One of the victims suffered multiple fractures, head injuries and facial trauma. The officer will need three months to recover before he can return to work, the court heard.

One of the two defendants was sentenced to one year in jail and the second to ten months. “Monaco is not a jungle,” they were told by the court president.
