The BNVCA declares to be surprised by the decision of the Juvenile Court Judge at the Pontoise High Court which does not accept the aggravating circumstance of anti-Semitism in the assault committed in Montmagny by several young people, against a child of Jewish faith.
The BNVCA is all the more taken aback that the prosecution and the police had immediately retained the anti-Semitic character, because the victim wore the kippa that was torn and stolen, and that he was coming out of a synagogue.
If it is true that it can be a brawl between young people, it must be remembered however that about fifteen young people of African and North African origin fell on the Jewish child, They beat, beat, including a tree limb, but only four of them were stopped by the police and brought before the Children's Court.
The BNVCA considers that in this case, the decision of the juvenile judge is in total contradiction with the Lellouche Act, which replaces the Gayssot law and states that "... the aggravating circumstance is constituted by any act of any kind that infringes the law. honor or consideration of the victim or of a group of persons of which the victim is a member on the grounds of their membership or non-membership, whether true or supposed to belong to an ethnic group, a nation, race or religion. "
As a result, through his counsel, Maître Baccouche, the BNVCA asked the Prosecutor of the Republic of Val d'Oise, to appeal the decision of the juvenile judge.
The BNVCA announces that it is constituted civil party alongside the victim.
The BNVCA believes that to fight effectively against anti-Semitism, it may be necessary to modify the law, so that any act committed against a good or a person of the Jewish community, is a priori considered anti-Semitic dependent for the investigation to demonstrate the opposite.
