This man participated in Tuesday’s demonstration against police violence which brought together more than 20,000 people before the Paris court.
A man was sentenced in immediate appearance to eight months in prison and imprisoned for violence against the police on the sidelines of the demonstration organized Tuesday in Paris at the call of the support committee for the family of Adama Traoré , AFP learned this Friday from a judicial source.
This event, which brought together at least 20,000 people before the Paris Judicial Court, intended to denounce a “denial of justice” in the investigation into the death of this young black man in 2016 after an arrest. It had been banned by the police headquarters but maintained by its organizers.
