President Drancy June 28, 2017
The BNVCA strongly condemns the arson attempt of the synagogue of Epinay Sur Seine, 41 rue de Paris, committed on the night of June 24, 2017 by an individual in his fifties who deliberately set fire to garbage cans placed in front of the door of the place of worship. According to our informant, the door was burnt down as well as premises adjoining the synagogue.
The BNVCA commends the action of the police who arrested the perpetrator of this anti-Semitic crime in flagrante delicto.
The BNVCA, which is planning to become a civil party, instructed counsel Sabine Tourjman to lodge a complaint against the perpetrator.
Even if the damage is not consistent, we consider the serious act and the guilty intention.
We demand that exemplary and dissuasive sentences be imposed on anti-Jewish arsonists.
