Benalla is on trial for falsifying documents for posing with a gun during the 2017 presidential election campaign, beating 2 people during the May 1, 2018 protests and continuing to use service and diplomatic passports after being fired in 2018.

Macron’s former bodyguard claimed that the pistol he put down on the first day of the hearings, which are expected to last until October 1, was not real, but a water pistol.

While the weapon is not real, Benalla has expressed regret over the photo and is expected to respond to further charges in the coming days at the hearing.

Macron’s former bodyguard was on the French agenda with the scandal that erupted in July 2018, when Le Monde newspaper revealed a video showing Benalla beating two people pretending to be a police officer during the events of May 1, 2018.

Benalla, who was found guilty of posing with a gun during the 2017 presidential election campaign and shooting two people during the May 1, 2018 protests, was dismissed from his post at the Elysee Palace after the 2018 scandal.
