A schoolboy of 15 years old, suspected of having wanted to commit an attack jihadist, he was brought today to the court in Paris in a view to a review by judges of counter-terrorism, according to a justice source.
The teenager, a class of third and unknown to intelligence services, was arrested Wednesday morning at his parents ‘ home at Domont (Val d’oise) and placed for 48 hours in custody in the premises of the ISB in Levallois-Perret (Hauts-de-Seine), said the source, confirming information of iTELE. “There is a suspicion of passage to the act,” noted a source close to the investigation. In police custody, “he was assured that he would have given up his project,” she added.
The minor was in contact via e-mail Telegram with Rashid Kassim, a jihadist French suspected of téléguider his followers at a distance from the area iraq-syria. It was also in connection, via the encrypted network, with the teenager arrested on 14 September in the Twentieth arrondissement of Paris, which was also in connection with Kassim and suspected of having wanted to perpetrate a violent action.
“It is very present on Telegram where he hosted two channels that broadcast the propaganda of the jihadist,” noted the source close to the investigation. In recent weeks, a dozen teenagers have been arrested for threats of attacks similar, under the influence of the propaganda of Rashid Kassim. The latter is believed to have inspired more or less directly the murder of a police officer and his girlfriend on the 13th of June in Magnanville (Yvelines), and that of a priest killed in his church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray (Seine-Maritime) on July 26. It would also have driven the projects to the attacks of a commando of women arrested in early September after the discovery of a car loaded gas tanks to Paris.
