Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In view of the above, it's clear the French police was tracking them, not in conformity with French law on sexual relations, but a European arrest warrant.

Which makes FRANCE 24 look like a British outlet whining about the French police yet again.

FRANCE 24 is such rubbish.

The article notes this :
Le parquet a souligné que la justice française n'était pas chargée du fond de l'affaire, mais seulement de l'exécution du mandat d'arrêt européen émis par les autorités britanniques à l'encontre de M. Forrest. Ce mandat devrait être examiné dans les vingt-quatre heures par le parquet général de Bordeaux. La police du Sussex (sud de l'Angleterre) a de son côté indiqué dans un communiqué que M. Forrest était suspecté d'enlèvement d'enfant.

The French police merely executed the European arrest warrant, which is apparently for child kidnapping. Which seems preposterous on its face.

The article also notes that there is a law on the books in France against sex with a minor over 15 involving abuse of authority, which would seem to apply to this case.

Don't stand... don't stand so... don't stand so close to me, etc
