The two minors indicted placed in pre-trial detention this Wednesday

The prosecution’s requisitions were heard. This Wednesday, the two minors indicted for murder after the death of Shemseddine, 15, beaten to death on April 4 in Viry-Châtillon, were placed in pre-trial detention, announced the public prosecutor, Grégoire Dulin, in a press release.

In total, four young men, including two brothers, are indicted for murder: among them, an adult and a minor were imprisoned during the night from Sunday to Monday. The two other minors had “requested time to prepare their defense”, indicated the prosecution.

His funeral took place this Tuesday

Me Jacques Bourdais, who defends a 17-year-old teenager, did not wish to react at the end of the hearing before the judge of freedoms and detention.

The funeral of “Shems”, as his friends called him, took place yesterday in Essonne, in the presence of dozens of relatives and residents of Viry-Châtillon. The death of the teenager, beaten to death near his college two days after another violent attack which targeted a schoolgirl in Montpellier, caused turmoil throughout the country.

The teenager at the center of the case has been indicted

According to the first elements of the investigation and the statements of the accused, cited by the public prosecutor of Evry, the two brothers had ordered several boys, including the victim, to stop their correspondence with their sister, in particular “on topics relating to sexuality”, “fearing for their reputation and that of their family”.

The 15-year-old girl was indicted for willful failure to prevent a crime. “There is no honor killing”, underlined Tuesday the Minister of Justice, Eric Dupond-Moretti, at the National Assembly, “there are only horror crimes”.
