TookThe life sentence of Salah Abdeslam, the only surviving member of the commando of the November 13 attacks, “does not appear to be in accordance with justice”, estimated on Thursday, the day after the decision by one of his lawyers, Martin Waits. “Where this decision does not seem to me to be in line with justice, it is that Salah Abdeslam receives the same punishment as was sentenced under the same conditions,” lamented Me Vets on France Inter Public Radio. ,
Osama Attar, presumed dead in Iraqi-Syrian territory, is the presumed sponsor of the November 13, 2015 attacks on Paris and Saint-Denis, in which 130 people were killed. Tried by default like the six other defendants, he was sentenced, like Salah Abdeslam, to life imprisonment, an extremely rare sentence, the heaviest in French criminal law. “We cannot be satisfied with a decision that equally sponsors the November 13 attacks and Salah Abdeslam,” Mee Waits stressed.
When asked about a possible appeal, the lawyer indicated that it was not necessary to “react warmly”. “We will take the time to discuss this” with Salah Abdeslam, he said.
“Who accepts hope to allow justice to continue? »
Like public prosecutors, defense lawyers have ten days to appeal against the Special Access Court’s decision. “We have ten days. We will take advantage of this,” said Martin Waits. “Ultimately, it is a decision that comes back to Salah Abdeslam”, he said. “We are at a great elasticity of criminal law which prosecutors was sold by us”, for her part Olivia Ronen, another lawyer for Salah Abdeslam.
Legally, I find it extremely complicated, we propose to condemn a person whom we know was not in Bataclan as if he was there and so such questions arise. You cannot hide your disappointment to see that there was something, I think, a little strange about the application of the law,” she said.
“The crime is heinous, (Salah Abdeslam) is solely responsible (…)” asked me Claire Joserand-Schmidt, attorney for 37 civil parties.
