The parent of student Brahim Chnina, indicted Wednesday for “complicity in terrorist assassination” in the investigation into the death of teacher Samuel Paty in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine (Yvelines), was remanded in custody Friday , we learned from the national anti-terrorism prosecutor and his lawyer.
The 48-year-old father, who had posted two videos calling for mobilization against the teacher, had been imprisoned on Wednesday pending a debate before the judge of freedoms and detention (JLD) who is held Friday afternoon at the Paris court.
He was arrested Saturday, October 17 at dawn, the day after the assassination of Samuel Paty, 47, by a refugee of Chechen Russian origin, Abdoullakh Anzorov.
The 18-year-old assailant was gunned down by police after claiming responsibility for his attack on social media.
“He is absolutely stunned by the horror of crime, like all French people,” Mr. Chnina’s lawyer, Me Nabil El Ouchikli, told AFP before the hearing.
The investigations revealed that the young terrorist had contacted the father of the family and that they had had exchanges, after the publication of the videos in which the latter accused the professor of “discrimination” against Muslim college students.
“He did not know who Anzorov was, just like the hundreds of anonymous people who contacted him from all over France and even from abroad to show him their support. He has complete confidence in justice so that the truth can come to light, ”added Me El Ouchikli.
Six people were indicted Wednesday for “complicity in a terrorist assassination”: in addition to Brahim Chnina, the Islamist activist Abdelhakim Sefrioui, two schoolchildren aged 14 and 15 as well as two friends of the assailant, Naïm B. and Azim E.
A third relation of the terrorist, Yussuf C., is being prosecuted for “criminal terrorist association”.
The five adults are in pre-trial detention and the two middle school students aged 14 and 15, accused of having appointed the teacher to the attacker for remuneration, under judicial supervision.
Mr. Chnina and Mr. Sefrioui, 61, are accused of having “designated as a target on social networks the professor of history and geography” by means of a maneuver and a reinterpretation of the facts “, had underlined the anti-terrorism prosecutor Jean-François Ricard.
Refuting any link between Mr. Chnina and “a radical movement”, Me El Ouchikli regretted that “the personality of (his) client relayed in the media does not (correspond) absolutely to reality”.
“He is a father who has been involved for over ten years in charitable associations and helping people with reduced mobility”, he underlined.
