Describing the crime as "fundamentally anti-Semitic", the Attorney General had requested 10 to 20 years of criminal imprisonment for three accused
The aggressors of a Jew and his companion, raped during a violent robbery in Créteil in 2014, were sentenced Friday to terms of up to 16 years imprisonment by the Val-de-Marne Assize Court , which retained the antisemitic qualification.
The three men, now 22, 23 and 26 years old (one is on the run), who had forcibly entered the victims' apartment with their hoods and guns, were sentenced to 16, 13, and 8 years of criminal imprisonment. The court also convicted the assailant for the rape.
The day before, calling the crime " fundamentally anti-Semitic", The Attorney General had requested from 10 to 20 years of criminal imprisonment for three accused aged 22, 23 and 26 years - one of whom is on the run - who had intruded force, hooded and armed, at the homes of the victims.
She also asked for twelve and eight years in prison for two accomplices, also tried in front of the Val-de-Marne since June 26.
The sentences are less severe than those demanded by the general counsel for a crime which she described as "fundamentally anti-Semitic". The day before, she had required 20 years of criminal imprisonment against Houssame Hatri, the man on the run and author according to the victims of anti-Semitic remarks during the burglary, no less than 15 years for Ladje Haidara, convicted of rape, and 10 years for Abdou Salam Koita, the third aggressor. Two accomplices, tried at the same time since June 26, have been sentenced to six and five years in prison.
On the morning of December 1, 2014, Jonathan and his now-former partner Laurine, who lived with the young man's parents, were tied up and gagged while the attackers searched for cash. "Jews do not put money in the bank," they were told in hand, threatening to "bump" them.
The young woman had been raped by one of the attackers during this violent robbery, facts that no accused recognizes.
Before the withdrawal of the court around 10:30, they spoke one last time, to "apologize", "ask forgiveness" to the victims, who were not present in the room Friday.
