Among these people is Brahim C. – the father of a student who launched a mobilization against the teacher, following two lessons on freedom of expression held by Samuel Paty on October 5 and 6 in a college in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine , in Yvelines.
Anti-terrorist investigators – who are looking for possible accomplices – are interested in a WhatsApp message exchange between this father and the attacker, Abdoullakh Anzorov, a Russian refugee of Chechen origin, killed at the age of 18 by the police after beheading.
Sulphurous Islamist activist Abdelhakim Sefrioui – who supported the father in the mobilization – is also due to appear before a judge on Wednesday.
Two minors are suspected of receiving money from the attacker in exchange for information about the victim.
A source close to the case told AFP on Monday that the beheaded teacher was “shown” to the attacker “by one or more students from the college, apparently in exchange for money”.
Also, three friends of the attacker, who surrendered to the Evreux Police Station on Friday night, are also to be presented to a judge.
According to a source close to the case, one of them is suspected of transporting the attacker, and another is suspected of accompanying him to buy the weapon used for beheading.
The pre-trial detention of nine other people was lifted on Tuesday evening, without these people being followed at this stage.
Among these people are three students, the parents, the grandfather and the younger brother of the attacker, but also Abdelhakim Sefrioui’s partner and a man already convicted of terrorism and who was in contact with the attacker.
Abdoullakh Anzorov beheaded Samule Paty, a history and geography teacher, near his college in a quiet neighborhood of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine on Friday night, after which he was shot dead by police with nine bullets. about 200 meters from the college.
This teacher recently showed his fourth graders caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad in a free speech course.
