Paris police crime figures cover-up claim

The Paris police engaged in a decade-long underrecording of crime incidents to make the French capital appear safer than it was, a government-ordered report claims.

According to The Daily Telegraph 16,000 suspected crime incidents were wiped from police records in 2011 and 13,000 in 2012. The claims follow a report last year that found that almost 130,000 crime incidents had 'disappeared' nationally in France between 2007 and 2012.
