Justice for Sarah: Thousands rally in Paris after the Muslim terrorist who murdered his Jewish neighbor will not stand trial
Thousands of people rallied on Sunday in Paris, protesting last month’s decision by the Court of Appeal of Paris that the Muslim terrorist who brutally murdered his Jewish neighbor Sarah Halimi three years ago, will not face trial for mental incapacity caused by the use of cannabis.
The court relieved Kobili Traore (29) of criminal responsibility for the murder of Sarah Halimi, whom he bashed for about an hour while shouting ‘allahu akbar’ and calling her a demon before throwing the 60-year-old physician to her death from the balcony of her three-story apartment.
But Traore “does appear to have voluntarily ended the life of Sarah Halimi,” the court ruled, saying the murder was partly because of anti-Semitism.
The ruling states that the Muslim terrorist will be sent to a drug rehabilitation institution and was banned from contacting Halimi’s relatives.
The decision was made following a professional opinion that indicated that the terrorist claimed to have attacked Halimi because of a “demon who possessed him” and was unaware of his actions due to increased use of cannabis.
Three experts who testified at the trial stated that Traore’s increased use of cannabis – 15 “joints” a day, reportedly – increased the delusions he experienced at the time.
“Should we deduce from this decision that every drug addict would have a license to kill the Jews?,” asked France’s Chief Rabbi Haim Korsia in an open letter to the Justice Minister published in daily Le Figaro, calling the decision a ‘’grave breach of trust in the country’s judicial system.
Neighbors said they heard Traoré shout “allahu akbar”, before throwing Halimi off a balcony.
“I’ve killed the demon,” he shouted in Arabic, according to French media.
Neighbors reportedly testified that they had heard the Muslim terrorist shouting that he wanted to kill Halimi just before the murder.
