The case sparked nationwide unrest and protests. 17-year-old Nahel was killed by a police officer during a traffic stop. The officer has been released on conditions.
More than four months after the death of 17-year-old Nahel in France from a police shot, the shooter has been released on conditions. However, the police officer is not allowed to carry a weapon and is not allowed to go to Nanterre. Nanterre is the Paris suburb where Nahel was killed.
As the local public prosecutor’s office announced, the man is not allowed to have any contact with witnesses or co-plaintiffs.
Nahel was killed by a police officer during a traffic stop at the end of June. Serious riots and protests against police violence then shook France for nights. There were repeated lootings, arson attacks and violent confrontations with the police.
The French government recently called for, among other things, tougher action against young offenders and their parents. The local police should also be given more powers, and young people in disadvantaged suburbs should also be better supported.
