The Paris prosecutor’s request for the reference to sitting 4 abusers of Clement Meric – francetv info

Since his tragic death on 5 June 2013, Clement Meric has become an icon for “antifa”: three years on, the prosecution requested a trial at the Assizes for four skinheads involved in the brawl that killed student .

the spectrum of extreme-right violence

June 5, 2013, in the afternoon, skins and antifascists had crossed by chance in a private sale of clothing brands favored by both movements, in the heart of Paris, Saint-Lazare area. After invectives, a brief scuffle had occurred in the street, letting down a student from Sciences-Po. His death had raised the specter of violence of the extreme right, at the time of violent militants were causing incidents during demonstrations against gay marriage.

Manuel Valls, interior minister of the time, denounced a “murder”. Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault promised to “cut to pieces” of extreme right groups. The government had dissolved Third Way , which were from the skinhead, and his stewards, the revolutionary nationalists Youth (JNR) , headed Serge Ayoub , a veteran of the movement.

No intent to kill, for Yet judges instruction moved towards the thesis of a brawl gone awry. They had rejected an intent to kill in the indictments , particularly in respect of the two main blamed, moreover released after more than a year of detention.

in his submissions, the Paris prosecutor asked reference to the foundation for voluntary violence causing death without intention to kill . If he also asks that they be tried for possession of a weapon, in this case brass knuckles, the Crown did not accept its use in the blows that have been brought to Clement Meric.
If judges instruction following requisitions, other two skinheads , 36 and 38, will be tried for willful violence in a meeting and weapon .

doubts remain

Each side accuses himself of having caused the other.
Three years later, doubts remain, including the possible use of brass knuckles to hit Clement Meric. SMS exchanged between two skins and revealed by an expertise in this direction. “ I’ve hit with your knuckles “, said one of them. “ It has the saggy “, said another.
But if one acknowledges having struck twice with the young “Antifa” face, just bare fist, another provides only not having touched.
medical, expert opinions on certain aspects and none of which has completely definitive conclusion, did not help to see more clearly.
