He sent over 180 terrorist threatening emails, school dropout tried for death threats

The boy was summoned this Thursday before the juvenile criminal court in Le Mans for having sent threats to information and orientation centres throughout France, announcing “a day of terror”.

What could have motivated this teenager who, on April 12, 2024, sent more than 180 emails to Information and Orientation Centers throughout France announcing a terrorist action?

“A day of terror”this is what the boy promised them, specifying that grenades, assault rifles and explosives would be used in this action carried out in the name of the Islamic State.

The investigation, conducted jointly by the judicial police of Lille and Angers, had quickly made it possible to trace the digital trail back to this French high school student who had been out of school since his second year, in Le Mans. Arrested about ten days after the sending of the threatening emails that had caused the evacuation of the targeted CIOs, the minor turned out to have no links to the Islamist sphere and, until then, was unknown to the Justice services.

This Thursday, the hearing was held before the juvenile court of Le Mans, but no sentence was handed down, the judge considering that the file was not complete. According to the magistrate, elements on the personality of the minor were missing.

The trial was therefore adjourned until September 19, 2024.
