François Mermet

General François MermetGeneral François Mermet is a French Air Chief Marshal.

General François Mermet, former director of the DGSE (1987-1989)
DGSE (Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure), which employs 4,100 people (2,800 civilians and 1,300 soldiers), it has a budget of nearly two billion francs per year.

The director of the DGSE occupies an important position, especially during cohabitation. His service broadcasts almost daily status messages to the Elysee, Matignon, Quai d'Orsay and Ministry of Defence. The head of the secret services also maintains at least once a month, face to face with the President of the Republic and the Prime Minister.

In the proper sense of the term, the DGSE constitutes the only "secret services" in France and is provided with amazing privileges: its budget is partially secret, none of parliamentary control can be exercised on it, and the agents have the option to act undercover as an IF (Identité Fausse). Since 1962 and the Ben Barka affair, the French secret services are subordinate to the Ministry of Defence.

Beside as director of the DGSE between 1987 and 1989, he was a director of nuclear experiments facilities in the Pacific between 1985 and 1987, and he is the man behind of the DRM (Direction du Renseignement Militaire) creation. Later, he led the Stratco, an emanation of the Ministry of Defence. Stratco is a strategic think-tank which backs up French defense organizations and industrialists. François Mermet is also involved in Pierre Sellier's corporation (Salamandre).

He was done a Grand Officer in the National Order for the Legion of Honor by François Mitterrand on October 5, 1990.
