Le Conseil constitutionnel se prononce en l’espèce sur les cas d’exemptions pénales en faveur des personnes mises en cause sur le fondement d’un délit d’aide au séjour irrégulier d’un étranger. Il conclue que l’alinéa 1 de l’article L. 622-4 du code de l’entrée et du séjour des étrangers et du droit d’asile (CESEDA) est inconstitutionnel en ce qu’il se doit d’inclure non seulement l’aide au séjour irrégulier mais aussi l’aide à la circulation de l’étranger en situation irrégulière. Le Conseil précise également que le 3° de l’article précité, bien que conforme à la Constitution, s’applique à tout acte d’aide au séjour apportée dans un but humanitaire. Le Conseil consacre ainsi la valeur constitutionnelle du principe de fraternité.
