“Come, follow me, I’ve got you, close your eyes, above all don’t look, don’t worry, you’ll be fine”, Me Frédérique Giffard, with a moving voice, begins to redden her cheeks. Civil Party lawyer appeals to loversAnd the “There were heaps of lovers on November 13th.” She was there that night “Tons of love you”. subordinate “I love you, you are the woman of my life, you are the man of my life.” And the lawyer begins to bombard the names of the husbands who fell side by side under the bullets of the terrorists. Lamia and Roman, Priscilla and Manu, or Marie, Amy and Terry. Then I, Giffard, talked about couples who had broken up due to death. “Sometimes he who dies protects who is alive”, You remember.

The others survived together. That evening there were husbands, married couples again, gay couples. And the Secret love, first dates, planned marriages, planned marriages, children expected, Frederic Giffard says: It describes the consequences, without the other you love, or with other indented, visible or invisible wounds. The accused who did not back down are angry at the killing of martyrs in the name of ISIS, “A grotesque death.” She turns to the chest, stares at the fourteen defendants present, and leaves her place to her colleague Helena Christidis.

The pleadings of the 69 orphans on November 13

Two syllables that 69 children will never utter again, Christidis starts me off with a very small voice. “47 will never say dad again, 20 will never say mom again, and two will never say mom or dad again.” The attorney lists the first names: Iris, Hector, Mathilde, Emilie, Micha, Tamia, Kevin, Sami, Elsa, and others. She also cites a 9-year-old boy and his little sister Thelma, who were in their mother’s womb on the night of the attacks. Gary, in November 2015, was on the spot List the things he no longer does with his father, This father Thelma never knew. Anna Christidis talks about another unborn child on the evening of November 13th: Gabriel.

So the youngest of them is six years old. All these children are orphans November 13. The lawyer says with difficulty even impossibility “Remember the scent of the father, the warmth of the mother, remember the voice.” They describe the devastation wrought by the attacks on child victims, orphans, and those who saw a surviving parent come home but forever changed the atrocities that occurred that evening. “Being a child victim of terror a month and a half without a hug from this dying father. He paints drawings of his parents with sad and frightened faces, full of astonishment. It’s the imagination of putting honey in the bad guy’s hair because he’s constant. It’s Charlie and this everyday question: Are you going home tonight?” my father? “

Christidis tells me about these children whose friends do not understand them. Those children who sometimes heard themselves say: “It’s been six months since your father passed away, can you stop frowning?” Sometimes children are very young and are already taking anxiolytics. The lawyer also resorts to the accused strictly: “Gentlemen Defendants, you have contributed to these mass killings. 69 orphans and hundreds of child survivors, marked for life, who unfortunately became adults too early.” She also talks about little Elliot, who went to the Eagles of Death Metal party with his two brothers and came home with just one of them.

And in her very humane plea, the lawyer also regrets ‘All these children are in the camps of the Islamic State’Children taken by their parents who joined ISIS, and now held behind barbed wire in camps in Syrian Kurdistan. Children to whom many victims of this trial clearly committed themselves, demanding that Emmanuel Macron be repatriated. Arthur Denovo, a Bataclan survivor, president of Life For Paris, and Philippe Duperonne, president of 13Onze15, have recently publicly expressed themselves for the humane treatment of these children of jihadists, and their voices have echoed in the appeal to Me Christidis. It ends with a reference to the first names of several of the accused’s children. “Gentlemen of the defendants, your children did not ask to be born into this world in this world that you filled with terror.”concluded.

“This evening turned his childhood upside down.”

Anna Lea Cabello is begging for Milan, who said to her father on the evening of November 13, 2015 in the Bataclan: “Dad, I think I stepped on the corpses.” Unbearable words, and more so for a child. Milan was 10 years old on the night of the attacks. “At ten, we only knew the first times, and that was Milan’s first concert. When the shooting started, he thought it was fireworks. His father pinned him to the floor.” They both escaped, curled up for an hour and a half at the end of a corridor, in front of the bathroom door that the spectators feared refused to open. That evening, Milan He should have discovered the music, discovered the terror, the fear of seeing his father die. His lawyer points out. conclude: “This evening turned his childhood upside down. Their lives changed forever.”

Hence, it is Sami’s lawyer who approaches the Bar to close his childhood pleadings. Sammy, who was 13 years old, when his mother, Mary Amy, was murdered by terrorists on the balcony of La Belle Equipe. Sami stayed “upright” for “Build up yourselves and do not become a mere victim of assaults”, Valerie Cayenne explains to me. Sami who had to build himself “Shield to continue hearing others utter my mother’s word.” Sami, like many others, said: “I will never be the same again.” Sami is “I can’t understand this senseless death”, as you say. talking about her ‘Deep despair’ The young man is now 19 years old.

In front of the court, a few meters from the defendants’ box, the lawyer said that Sami is present “Now it’s the server.” She wonders if he doesn’t choose this job every day On the balcony with his mother. On a bench in the courtroom, Sami weeps on the shoulder of a close friend of his mother, who has become his godmother. Then he leaves crying. A moment of infinite grief on the 129th day of the trial of the November 13 attacks. As marked today, this sentence is repeated several times: “You won’t get to hate me.” These words were written by Antoine Leiris to the address of the terrorists, a few hours after he learned of the death of his wife, Helen Moyal Leiris, the woman of his life, the mother of their son Melville. “You shall not have my hatred”, Strong text that became a book, a phrase associated with November 13, such as I’m Charlie Associated with January 2015.

On November 13, 2015, Melville was 17 months old. That evening, the child’s lawyer regrets the loss of his father Melville “A very beautiful mother, very affectionate, my kisses heal sorrows.” But despite the accused,“Hélène-Luna Muyal-Leiris Leaves Behind A Light: The Moon, Her First Name, Second, That Illuminate”. which is the moon “A star, the last light before the day is seen” The lawyer concludes by quoting Antoine Leiris.

The trial will resume tomorrow at 12:30 pm, with further arguments from the civil party’s lawyers.
