The Minister of justice of France, Nicole Beluba said that he would not intervene in the process in the case of the murder of Sarah Halimi, which the Jewish community of the country requires to classify as a crime of religious hatred.
Reasoning his decision, the Minister referred to the Constitution guaranteed the principle of separation of powers, writes on Wednesday, July 26, the Jewish news Agency JTA.
This statement was made in the beginning of the meeting and President of the Council of Jewish organizations of France (CRIF) Francis Califas and his two deputies.
On July 4 this year 67-year-old Jewish girl Sarah (Lucy) Halimi, a resident of the 11th arrondissement of Paris, was thrown out her neighbor, 27-year-old Arab-Muslim named Kobil Traore, from the window of a three storey house where her apartment and died from received in a fall injuries.
The criminal was sent for psychiatric examination – investigators suspect that he suffers from a mental illness. Police earlier rejected the version of a murder for hate, despite the fact that Traore during the Commission of this crime shouted «Allahu Akbar!» and recited prayers. The newspaper reminds that previously he had not come to the attention of psychiatrists.
Daughter Halimi said that Traore at the meeting called the neighbor «a dirty Jew». The Caliph and other leaders of the French Jewish community are convinced that this crime was committed on the grounds of anti-Semitism, and requires the court to consider the motives of the perpetrator. However, the indictment against Traore, does not mention his hatred of Jews or any other mention of aggravating circumstances.
Recall that earlier this month the President of France Emmanuel macron has affected his speech it’s murder, saying that law enforcement agencies must get to the truth, despite the fact that the murderer denies his guilt.
