The lawyer for Bernard Maris’s son considered, on BFMTV this Sunday, that it could be useful for the trial of the January 2015 attacks to be “heard by middle school and high school students”.
The lawyer of the son of Bernard Maris, guest of the program “Next case” on BFMTV this Sunday, estimated that the trial of the January 2015 attacks, which opened on September 2 in Paris, “should be heard” by middle school and high school students.
“I will say it frankly, the citizen in me will not emerge the same from this trial”, declared Me Caty Richard, one of the lawyers of the civil parties and lawyer of the son of Bernard Maris, on BFMTV. “Because we are recording this trial for memory. We are told, which is already good, it’s true: ‘we will bring it out in 50 years'”.
“But it is not in 50 years that it must be brought out,” said the lawyer on the set of the show. “There are entire passages of testimony that should be heard today to college students, high school students. We have lessons in freedom, I think that’s really the word. It is freedom that ‘ we tried to kill that day, “she still pleads.
“An extraordinary trial”
On our antenna, Me Caty Richard described this trial as an “extraordinary trial”. But according to her, it is also important that “it remains a normal trial and for the civil parties, for whom it was difficult to take ownership of this trial”.
On Wednesday September 2, a historic trial opened for two months: that of the Charlie Hebdo, Montrouge and Hypercacher attacks, in which 17 people were killed in January 2015. This is the first terrorism trial in France and it is being filmed. Due to the epidemic, everyone is masked there, including in the courtroom.
