Temporary Reprieve for Rhino

Residents of Rhino, one of Geneva's oldest squats, win one in court: Edicom reports (in French) that a Cantonal (state) court vacated the eviction order for the building. If I understand the French correctly, the court ruled that state prosecutor and the police had no right to enforce a private eviction. The landlord can appeal the decision to federal court.

If anyone more versed in French than I am could clarify the ruling, I'd appreciate it.
