At the November 13 trial, the powerful argument of Salah Abdeslam’s lawyers against a “slow death penalty” – Le Monde

-

Salah Abdeslam’s lawyer, Mᵉ Olivia Ronen, during her argument at the special assize court in Paris, June 24, 2022. IVAN BRUN FOR “THE WORLD” “This trial must not be the continuation of the war against terrorism by other means. The prosecution asks you to permanently neutralize an enemy by condemning him to a social death penalty. You are basically asked to punish Salah Abdeslam commensurate with the suffering of the victims. It’s called the law of retaliation, in a modern and revisited version. It seems that the purpose of punishment is to make the one who punishes better. So, when you reflect on your decision, I ask you to make the effort to ask yourself this question: will the sentence you are about to impose make us better off? It was on this mirror held up to the court that Me Martin Vettes returned to the defense benches on Friday June 24, under the gaze of his client who, from the glass box of the defendants, did not take his eyes off him. during the two hours of his oral argument. The frail silhouette of her colleague, Me Olivia Ronen, in turn approaches the bar to carry the immense burden weighing on these two young 32-year-old lawyers: trying to avoid Salah Abdeslam, who has the same age than them, the incompressible life imprisonment required by the prosecution. The two weeks of pleadings in the trial of the November 13 attacks ended, before a verdict scheduled for Wednesday, June 29, with a powerful two-voice charge against “real life”. This “slow death sentence”, in the words of Me Ronen, which dims any hope of release, has only been pronounced four times against perpetrators of violent crimes against minors. Salah Abdeslam has never killed anyone directly: he is the defaulting member and the only survivor of the commandos that killed 130 people on November 13, 2015. Mr. Martin Vettes, one of Salah Abdeslam’s lawyers, at the court of special assizes of Paris, June 24, 2022. SERGIO AQUINDO FOR “THE WORLD” “A legal fiction” If Salah Abdeslam incurs this extremely rare sentence, it is because he is considered to be a “co-author” of the attempted murders against committed by the three Bataclan terrorists, the only offense justifying in this case the heaviest sanction of the criminal code. Salah Abdeslam has never been to the Bataclan, nor has he shot at the police. He even claims to have given up killing that evening. A “burst of conscience” which justifies, in the eyes of his lawyer, giving him hope of going out one day.

According to his legal reading of the facts, all the targets of these attacks constitute a single crime scene, for which the accused is fully responsible in “coaction” with the other assailants. A “legal fiction”, castigates Me Ronen, who summarizes this reasoning with a formula: “We know that you were not there, but we will condemn you as if you were there.
