Schnegg can not comment on the cancellation at the last minute. He should not have made a speech.
The cancellation of the trip on Sunday also reported Hannes Zaugg-Graf, president of the Great Council of Bern. The Bern delegation was invited five minutes before departure to not go to the festival in Saignelégier JU, because security could not be guaranteed. Zaugg, therefore, congratulated the Jura via Twitter.
Berne government officials Philippe Müller (FDP) and Pierre Alain Schnegg (SVP) were expected to attend the ceremony. This last one is Bernjurassier and president of the jurassic delegation of the government of Bern.
In the run-up to the festivities, the autonomists had already indicated that in connection with the Moutier question they could express their displeasure with whistles against the two Bernese magistrates.
The 40th birthday festivities had already begun on Friday. The highlight of the celebrations is the ceremony in Saignelégier on Sunday, for which the Federal Councilor Alain Berset was also expected.
