07/05/2012Toulouse shooter family to file against French police

The Algerian lawyer hired by the family of the shooter who killed seven people in France in March said Monday she would launch proceedings next week against the elite police unit that killed him.

"I am ready to travel to France Thursday or Saturday to start the complaint procedure against the RAID (elite unit) next Monday," Zahia Mokhtari told AFP.

Mohamed Merah, a self-confessed Al-Qaeda follower, was killed in a police siege in Toulouse after shooting dead seven people, including three Jewish children, in a spree that shocked France.

His family in Algeria says the French forces did not do enough to attempt to take him alive and Mokhtari claims she has video evidence.

She said she would be assisted in the French court procedure by Isabelle Coutant-Peyre, who is the lawyer of Illich Ramirez Sanchez -- best known as Carlos the Jackal -- and even married the Venezuelan revolutionary in 2001.

"Isabelle Coutant-Peyre will help me with the complaint procedure because of her knowledge of the French justice system," the Algerian lawyer said.

What an outrage. She should not be allowed to enter the country.

Why not? Given that France has a democratically elected Socialist leader, she will not only be allowed into the country but also earn a substantial payout. Otherwise guess what, there will be rioting and disharmony by the peaceful folks.

Of course she will be able to sue for com-pen-say-shun, after all he only killed 7 ppl and of course he does have " HUMAN RIGHTS "......how dare the French police shoot him.

Okay. And the families of the men and children he murdered should be allowed to sue his family, and his extended family overseas. In fact, why not extend the lawsuit to Saudi Arabia, as a bastion of Wahhabism-cum-Salafism?
