TRIBUNE – The Court of Cassation has just confirmed the criminal irresponsibility of Kobili Traoré, who, in April 2017, in Paris, assaulted and defenestrated a 65-year-old woman, Sarah Halimi. The Chief Rabbi of France * strongly criticizes this court decision.
The British Foreign Secretary, Sir Edward Gray, prophesied when the United Kingdom entered the war in 1914: “The lights are going out all over Europe, we will never see them turn on again in our lifetime.” We know what happened with the XXe century.
Should we transpose this formula by reading the judgment of April 14 of the Court of Cassation, our highest court of the judicial order, which has just struck down the case of the murder of Sarah Halimi?
Are the lights about to go out from the grassroots to the highest echelon of the French judicial hierarchy, in what state will our Republic be, and in what state will we live when, after the darkness, these lights will turn on again? Because they will light up again one day, I don’t want to lose faith in our humanity or in our nation.
It is not for me to develop here the legal argument which would again expose the implausibility
