Six of the sixteen people who had been detained to verify their possible involvement in the jihadist attack in which on the 16th a professor in the Paris region was beheaded they have been released after being questioned.
Judicial sources indicated to Efe who have been released four members of the murderer’s family, the 18-year-old Chechen Abdoullakh Anzarov.
Also the partner of Abdelhakim Sefrioui, who for his part is still under arrest to clarify his intervention next to the father of a student against the professor murdered in the town of Conflans Sainte Honorine, Samuel Paty, whom they reproached having taught his students the controversial cartoons of Muhammad in a course dedicated to freedom of expression.
The sixth person who was released is a man who was arrested because he had been in contact with Anzarov and who had been convicted of terrorism.
The tribute to Paty
The National Antiterrorist Prosecutor’s Office must decide whether the ten who continue to be detained are presented before the judge if there are elements that may lead to his indictment.
Among them there are students from the same school in which Paty taught for those who want to confirm that they told the murderer who the teacher was, in exchange for money.
Paty will receive this Wednesday a posthumous tribute at the University of the Sorbonne in Paris in which the French president, Emmanuel Macron, will impose on him the Legion of Honor, the highest official distinction of the country.
