Courbevoie: shock and indignation after rape and anti-Semitic violence against a 12-year-old girl

They decided to break the silence. Nine days after the ordeal endured by their 12-year-old daughter, both of her parents agreed to testify and provide news of their child. “Today, she has flashbacks at night before she goes to sleep. She wakes up at night, she is distressed about what happened. We are horrified at the abominable acts that were perpetrated on our daughter, she feels like her childhood has been stolen.” says his father on condition of anonymity, in the TF1 news video above.

“It’s an ambush”

On June 15, around 5 p.m., their daughter was dragged into an abandoned building by three teenagers, aged 12 to 13. “They were waiting for her in the square and then they took her to a place that they knew beforehand. So yes, it’s an ambush”he continues. “We can only assume that. I don’t see how a boy who doesn’t live in the city at all ends up in the square where he knows she lives.”adds the mother.

The young girl knows the one who seems to be the ringleader. He allegedly accused her of having hidden from him that she was Jewish, before beating her. In these places an ordeal of an hour and a half begins, to which the victim’s lawyers testify. “It is indeed a crime of sordid anti-Semitism. She was kidnapped, humiliated, insulted, beaten, threatened with death. Attempts were made to extort money from her. She was sexually assaulted, she was raped “explains Master Oudy Bloch. “Her attackers saw in her not a child of their age, but an enemy because she was Jewish”adds Master Murielle Ouaknine-Melki.

Today, the girl’s parents are appealing. “It’s the whole of society that is sick, it’s the whole of society that must contribute to being cured. So it doesn’t just concern the Jews, it concerns everyone.” insists the mother.
