The Syrian assailant, who attacked young children, was indicted last weekend and placed in pre-trial detention in an anti-suicide cell monitored 24 hours a day. The suspect has not moved from his bed and refuses to eat. The investigating judges in charge of the investigation will have to clarify the course of this 24-year-old man.

This Saturday, June 10, the man of Syrian origin, who attacked young children in the city of Annecy, was indicted and placed in provisional detention in an anti-suicide cell that is monitored 24 hours a day. For two days, the man has remained silent, prostrate in his cell. A fragile inmate, placed in solitary confinement to protect himself from others, but also from himself. A behavior very far from that of his custody, where the suspect appeared disturbed, not hesitating to scream and roll on the ground.

No delusions

The psychiatrist who examined him did not find any delusional element, but it is too early to pronounce on a possible psychiatric pathology, it will be the mission of psychiatrists and psychologists in the coming weeks.

Their conclusions will be decisive, they will indeed say if the individual was aware of his gestures during his passage to the act. If he concludes that his discernment has been abolished, he will be declared irresponsible and no trial will be held. Otherwise, he will be tried for attempted murder. He will then appear before an assize court and face life imprisonment.
