Jean-Marie Delarue

STATE COUNCILLOR, CONTROLLER GENERAL OF PLACES OF DEPRIVATION OF LIBERTY (FRANCE 2008-2014)

Jean-Marie Delarue was born in 1945. He is married and has five children.
He studied history and sociology at the École normale supérieure de Saint-Cloud, the École Pratique des Hautes études and the University of Paris VIII. He took the Agrégation (a French teaching examination) in history, and also studied at the École nationale d’administration.
His past roles include Inter-Ministerial Delegate for Urban Affairs and Urban Social Development (1991-1994), Director of Civil Liberties and Legal Affairs for the Ministry of the Interior (1997-2001),Member of the National Ethics Advisory Committee (since 2013) and President of the National Control Commission on Security and Communications Interceptions in 2014. On 15 September 2015, it was announced that Jean-Marie Delarue had been removed from consideration for the role of chair of the new National Commission for the Control of Intelligence Techniques. He was considered too independent to hold this role.
The Controller General of Places of Deprivation of Liberty (CGLPL) is an independent administrative authority whose role is to protect against violations of the fundamental rights of persons deprived of their liberty. Jean-Marie Delarue was the first person to hold this post. To maintain their independence, the CGLPL does not receive instructions from any authority and is protected from prosecution for opinions issued or actions taken in the course of their duties. The six-year appointment cannot be renewed or dismissed, and the CGLPL cannot engage in other professional activities or hold other elected offices.

“Being arrested at the age of 22 and imprisoned for 3 years in Iranian prisons, and being tortured for 5 years, either destroys you or makes you stronger. These years have brought me one dream: that of a world without prisons like the ones we know. I have traveled to over a hundred countries as a journalist, and I have had the opportunity to observe attempts in all these countries to set up alternative responses to repressive imprisonment and life behind bars with no other option. While it may bring relief to the victims and protect society, I believe the system of punishment and imprisonment of a human being in a prison enhances the reasons that prompted them to commit the crime they are being punished for. Psychologically, prison as we understand it is an aggregate of possible violence, barely held behind bars and barbed wire. I wonder how to break this circle of violence for the sake of society and for individual well-being. (…)”
