Families of killed French terror suspects sue state for murder

The families of two suspected jihadists, who were killed in the French police counter-terrorist operations following the Paris attacks in November, have sued France for murder, saying that their relatives were killed wrongfully.

Murder complaints were recently filed by the family of the Hasna Aitboulahcen, a cousin of the alleged Paris attacks mastermind, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, and by the father of Tarek Belgacem, who tried assaulting a police station with a knife on the anniversary of the Charlie Hebdo attacks, The Local reported.

Aitboulahcen was killed on November 18, five days after the Paris attack, when the police stormed an apartment in Saint-Denis where she was hiding together with Abaaoud and another terrorist, Chakib Akrouh.

French investigators believe that the 26-year-old woman was the one who found and rented the safe house for the jihadists.

However, her family disagrees with the official version of the events, claiming that Aitboulahcen was helping the terrorists against her will.

“I consider that Hasna Aitboulahcen is a victim,” Fabien Ndoumou, the family's lawyer, said. “She was under pressure from her cousin, who threatened her family and the families of her friends.”

The lawyer also said that the woman’s body still remained at the forensic institute in the capital, and demanded a burial permit, explaining that “this goes against Muslim rites.”



Does this mean they should have paid off the relatives to keep their mouths shut prior to the killings?
