“Justice is wrong target,” said his lawyer, who prefers to remain anonymous.
Islamist activist Abdelhakim Sefrioui was indicted Wednesday (October 21) for “complicity in assassination in connection with a terrorist enterprise”, franceinfo learned on Wednesday through his lawyer. It is “stunned, devastated”, indicated the one who assures his defense and who wishes to remain anonymous.
According to his defender, Abdelhakim Sefrioui “didn’t expect what happened at all”. he “ignored everything” of the terrorist project of Abdoullakh Anzorov who assassinated Samuel Paty, professor of history and geography in a college in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, in the middle of the street. He believes that it is especially necessary “look for those who recruited the terrorist, who incited him to take action”. He denounces an investigation which “is only interested in second knives, in simple accomplices when the danger is elsewhere”.
Adbelhakim Sefrioui is notably implicated for having participated in the mobilization against the teacher. He had also accompanied the father to college who had come to complain about the teacher’s behavior, and he had also posted a video on social networks. According to his lawyer, there is no proof, for the moment, that this video provoked the act of the terrorist. “Is Abdullakh Anzorov saw this video? This remains to be proven. Surely he didn’t need that to murder “, continued the lawyer. The same line of defense was offered by the student’s father who posted the video.
