Two weeks after the murderous terror attacks in Paris, where around 130 people were murdered, French Security Forces will examine the permits of 87,000 workers at Charles De Gaulle International Airport in Paris.  The decision comes after it became clear that at least 57 workers were on the terror watch list.

According to the reports in France, the workers on the list of suspects have permission to approach aircraft landings, take-offs, and the area where the planes refuel. After the murderous terror attacks, the authorities have conducted extensive searches in the airport, which is considered one of the largest in Europe and the world.  It was published that in last January, after the terror attacks at the Hyper Cacher and the Charlie Hebdo Magazine, there was also a security check and some of the people were denied work permits but dozens continued to work anyways.

The French Police stated that in the first phase, they will examine the approval of 5,000 security guards at the airport.  “The question is what these people have done and planned since they received their work permits,” the Police stated.
