Anti-Semitic rape in Courbevoie: the 12-year-old victim “really thought she was going to die”

France has only been talking about her since Tuesday. The 12-year-old girl who was raped on Saturday in Courbevoie by three teenagers who were her age or almost, “is doing badly physically (and) psychologically”, “she really believed that she was going to die in this abandoned building”, said explained Friday evening one of his lawyers, Me Oudy Bloch.

Speaking for the first time since the revelation by Le Parisien of the facts of rape and violence against a backdrop of anti-Semitic justifications, triggering a thunder of disgust, incomprehension, and disapproval, Me Bloch responded to BFMTV that “I do not I’m not going to surprise you by telling you that she’s not doing well, physically or psychologically. She suffered everything, this very young girl. She suffered anti-Semitic insults, humiliation, threats, physical violence, sexual violence. She really thought she was going to die in this abandoned building.”

” For what ? For not having admitted, as if it were a mistake, that she was Jewish, allegedly for having spoken badly about Palestine,” he insists, relaying the general astonishment. And adding that “you know what it is like in terms of rape, on a very young girl, who obviously has never had sexual relations of any kind”, the doctors had to follow the protocol , giving him “the morning after pill” and “treatments for STDs.” “His world is light years away from what happened,” he says. “I’m not even talking about the trauma that we’re going to have to manage,” the lawyer is alarmed.

If his family is in shock, they are, he assures, “very touched by the expressions of sympathy and solidarity” which have been sent to him by so many people who have denounced the facts as unspeakable. According to Me Bloch, the victim’s relatives will not participate in the mobilizations, in particular the one planned for Sunday in Courbevoie. “The priority” is “the repair of this little young girl in peace, far from the tumult of this affair”.

Call for calm

A new citizen gathering is organized tomorrow, Sunday, by the mayor of the town of Hauts-de-Seine, Jacques Kossowski (LR). “Let’s stand up to say stop anti-Semitism,” we can read in the call relayed on social networks, which invites people to meet at 11 a.m. in front of the Courbevoie cultural center, boulevard Aristide-Briand.

Friday morning, hundreds of people gathered in front of the mayor of Courbevoie. The president of Crif Yonathan Arfi was present as well as Father Georges Vandenbeusch, who was a priest in the city for five years, as well as the president of the Ile-de-France region Valérie Pécresse and the mayor of Rueil-Malmaison Patrick Ollier. Facing the crowd, Jacques Kossowski called for everyone’s inner calm, for “political” calm so as not to sow trouble, for “media” calm to promote the “reconstruction” of the young girl and “religious” calm to preserve secularism. .

A rally against anti-Semitism took place the day before at Place de la Bastille in Paris, and several hundred people responded to the call from SOS Racisme and the Women’s Foundation.
