Semitic aggression in Villeurbanne: four suspects indicted
Five young people had spontaneously returned to police Wednesday and Thursday by appearing as witnesses at the scene.
The incident provoked a very strong emotion in the Jewish community. Four of the five suspects in custody after the assault of young people wearing the yarmulke in Villeurbanne were indicted Friday night for "aggravated violence", announced the judicial authorities. The fifth, considered as a mere witness, was not pursued.
The four suspects indicted were placed under judicial supervision contrary to the submissions of the prosecutor, who had requested their custody. The prosecution appealed the decision.
The prosecutor, Marc Cimamonti said that the facts were "aggravated" as committed in meeting with a weapon and because of the religious affiliation of the victims. The suspects face seven years in prison.
