Attack against French President Emmanuel Macron foiled, 6 arrested: Brainwave ScienceSITUATION

The French Security services have detained 6 persons over an alleged plot to attack Emmanuel Macron. Judicial officials have said that the suspects were arrested by officers who were investigating an “imprecise and loosely formed” plan for violent action against the president.

Mr. Macron was in Verdun, northeast France, for World War I commemorations when the latest arrests were made on Tuesday. He will host US president Donald Trump this weekend.

The 6 persons include a woman and they were rounded up from raids in three different regions of France.

It is believed that the they are members of far-right movement. They are of diverse ages ranging from 20 to 60. The man who is the main suspect was found with a 44-calibre gun, as reported by the French TV Channel BFM TV. French police arrested the suspects from Moselle, on the French border with Germany and Luxembourg; Isere, southeast of Lyon; and Ille-et-Vilaine, in northwest France near the city of Rennes.

This is not the first time when a member of the far-right extremist movement has been arrested on suspicions of plotting to assassinate the President. A 23-year old was arrested in July last year.

Only last week, President Macron had warned of the threat from far-right movements across Europe. He cited the examples of the rise of Hitler in Germany and Mussolini in Italy, and attributed it to the complacency during the 1930s, while speaking to Le Courrier Picard newspaper.


The world is more volatile than ever, it is less restful and political balances can tip within a matter of days. Countries must be equipped and ready to protect its interests and people. It’s not only ministers and public servants who are high value targets, but also industrialists, activists, writers who are at risk of abduction and assassination. Assassinations are not a new phenomenon, the assassinations of Henri III and Henri IV on French soil, dating back to the 1500s and 1600s. Any such attempt if successful causes political instability and unrest and thus are detrimental to the progress of the nation and region.

Despite making tremendous security advancements, the planners and plotters remain neck-to-neck with National Security Agencies and continue to pose new challenges.

The latest arrests show that it takes only a few radicalized persons, if successful, to inflict great damages to the political landscape and public morale.


Security Agencies constantly receive threats related to the assassination of officials and ministers of importance. At the same time, intelligence agencies track every move of individuals and groups which they are suspicious of. After discovering the imminent threat on President Macron and making arrests, the French Security services have the chance to accurately and reliably obtain clues and leads from a foolproof source, the brains of the six arrested members of the far-right extremist group.

Advancements made in neuroscience provide National Security agencies with a breakthrough solution for accurate intelligence. The closest and advanced technology with impeccable accuracy to determine critical intelligence hidden in the brains of extremists is called iCognative developed and designed by Brainwave Science. This technology is a state-of-the-art, contemporary forensic technology that out-performs in terms of portability, accuracy, ease of use and has a proven track record to provide results, leads and intelligence. Utilization of iCognative on the arrested suspects by intelligence and investigating agencies can provide much needed hidden details, concealed information within a short span of 45 minutes.

iCognative, when used by law enforcement rapidly delivers valuable and accurate intelligence such as detailed plot of assassination of President Macron; execution plans, locations considered and finalized; locations and names of other suspected far-right members; their hideouts and other vital information necessary to eliminate this threat and arrest remaining members. The testee can deceive other conventional forensic technology but when confronted by iCognative test, they can’t hide any information as there are no questions to answer, no false positives or false negatives, and no inhumane methods. The test scientifically and accurately detects specific crime-related information stored in the suspects’ brains. The iCognative system records and analyzes brainwave responses to each specific crime-related information (stimulus) flashed on a screen to the suspect and determines with over 99% accuracy if the information under question is present in the suspect’s brain or not.

As the threat is real and critical, Brainwave Science‘s iCognative technology is the missing part of the forensic puzzle, and it is applicable to around 85% of all cases and helps save up to 80% of investigation costs.  iCognative is the most superior and reliable forensic technology available in the security market as it guarantees objective results with an accuracy of 99.9%.
