Not much info on why the French activist was arrested from Google. I need to find a better source for News than Google.There is no EU government that labels any and all activists as criminals. France and Switzerland certainly are not doing that in this case.
Since Europol is involved that means the so-called "peaceful Youth for Climate" activists did something criminal across national borders. Evidently it is at such a level that 3 nation-state agencies all agreed, and the Swiss government gave the non-cooperating Proton CEO no choice. He either cooperates or goes to jail for obstruction. it is almost a certainty that he has put himself into this same position multiple times. Nobody did it to him. He does it to himself through the choices he makes.
There is a minority of activists that are militant and use violence and property damage to further the goals of their ideology. They try to bring change via intimidation and coercion. They are criminals and need to be pursued to fullest extent of the law. And that is exactly what is happening in this case.
