Reference to the repository
Biceps bulging molded in a polo shirt, black, catogan, goatee and mustache, the one that was awkwardly defended in front of the cameras of “BFM TV”, after the attacks of Paris, know the identity of people he is suspected of having hosted, is barely recognizable. His lawyer, Xavier Nogueras tries to calm him down. In vain.
“You think I’m an extremist ? I am Salah Abdeslam, me ?”, once again, the one who is in prison in solitary confinement, in Villepinte, for more than a year.
It was too much for the president who sends it back to the repository. Jawad Bendaoud, whose trial for drug trafficking had already been returned, in November, after his refusal to leave his cell, is going to be, this time, held in his absence.
Mohamed S. keeps silence
fleece jacket black, Mohamed S. thus remains alone in the box. On the facts, he prefers to keep silent. He indulges only briefly, on his “many bullshit” since it is small, the flights that he said to regret, family problems… But, he says, he has “grown up, “matured”. The one who is believed to have been an intermediary between Jawad Bendaoud and the cousin of Abdelhamid Abaaoud is also considered today for drug trafficking. On the basis of statements made to investigators in the course of their custody after their arrest in the margin of the storming of Saint-Denis.

justice, proclaims he, “would have had to conduct investigations and not settle for simple declarations”. The lawyer also confides his lack of comprehension about the state of his client -who never ceases to proclaim his innocence in letters to the investigating judges in charge of the investigation on the attacks – to his arrival at the hearing. He spoke with him shortly before. It was “ready”, “waiting for the deadline” to express themselves, what they “need”. And Xavier Nogueras to insist on the detention conditions of his client, in spite of the recommendations of the investigating judge to a return to terms classic, in a “isolated”.
