Facing criticism from some housing rights organizations, Cecile Duflot stated that procedures to open up new spaces for housing by requisitioning buildings that have been left empty and unused for a long time by their owners are hindered by the slowness of the judicial procedures they entail, but vowed to move forward with the initiative.
