The boy refused to observe a minute of silence for the victims and held about “solidarity” with the terrorists, according to his teacher.
30 MINUTES OF HEARING
“In the current context, the school principal decided to report what happened to the police” , said the Commissioner Authier, noting that it is not intended as a complaint.
“We summoned the boy and his father to try to understand how an 8 year old boy may have to hold about as radical” says Authier. The child was heard for 30 minutes, then played with toys during the hearing of his father, civilly liable. Representatives of primary school have not yet commented on the case.
“THE CHILD DOES NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT HE SAID”
“Obviously, the child does not understand what he said. We do not know where he went to get his words “ reports the departmental director of public safety. According to his lawyer, who tweeted extracts from the hearing, the child would have answered “I do not know,” to the question “What is meant by the word terrorist to you? “.
