his sister asks the State to recognize its responsibility

The lawyer for the sister of Samuel Paty, a teacher killed near his college in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine (Yvelines) in October 2020, asked the State to recognize its responsibility in this assassination, she said on Tuesday March 19, confirming information from Le Figaro.

The letter was sent on March 15 to Prime Minister Gabriel Attal, the Minister of National Education Nicole Belloubet and the Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin in order to obtain from them “the official recognition of the responsibility of the State in the occurrence of the attack”specified Me Carine Chaix, lawyer for Mickaëlle Paty.

Samuel Paty, a 47-year-old history and geography teacher, was stabbed then beheaded by Abdoullakh Anzorov, a Russian refugee of Chechen origin on October 16, 2020. The 18-year-old man, radicalized, accused him of having shown in class caricatures of Mohammed. He had claimed responsibility for his action by congratulating himself on having “avenge the prophet”then was killed by the police.

Agents of National Education and territorial intelligence in Yvelines were informed of the virulent campaign on social networks around Samuel Paty’s course but the latter had not been protected.

” Responsibility “

“The ethics of responsibility cannot stop at the gates of the State. The State cannot ask teachers to be responsible and to teach students so that they become responsible adults if it itself does not assume its responsibility., developed Me Chaix. This request is accompanied by a request for compensation in the amount of €21,000 which will be donated to secular associations, the lawyer said.

National Education confirmed receipt of this letter and indicated that it would take note of it. Matignon and the Ministries of National Education and the Interior have two months to respond to this request; in the absence of a response or negative response, an appeal will be filed before the administrative court, said Me Chaix.

Ten members of Samuel Paty’s family filed a complaint in April 2022 against the administration, which they accuse of not having protected the professor. A judicial investigation was opened by the Paris prosecutor’s office for failure to assist a person in danger and failure to prevent a crime.

Six college students were sentenced to sentences ranging from 14 months in prison to six months in prison – placed under an electronic bracelet – on December 9, 2023 for their involvement in the assassination of Samuel Paty. The trial of eight adults implicated in this attack is scheduled before the special assize court from November 12 to December 20.
