Murder of Matisse: “The French will not tolerate this situation for much longer”, believes Georges Fenech – Decryption – News

Source [Valeurs actuelles] : INTERVIEW. Saturday April 27, Matisse, 15, was brutally stabbed to death in a street in Châteauroux by a young Afghan. A murder which revolts the former magistrate Georges Fenech, who denounces the laxity of justice and the savagery of France.

Georges Fenech. I was angry, I was angry because young Matisse extends this endless list of young adolescents killed with knives for nothing. I was angry because I know that our laws, our systems, no longer correspond to the seriousness of the situation. When I saw that he was already indicted for two previous acts of violent assault, and that he simply found himself under judicial supervision, I really had a feeling of anger. We are not protecting the French. And we can say, once again, that this tragedy could have been avoided.

The suspect is a 15-year-old Afghan boy, already convicted twice for aggravated robbery with violence and for which he had been released under judicial supervision. Does justice bear some responsibility in this matter?
It must be understood that the judge who made this decision to release under judicial supervision had no other alternatives. Indeed, the law resulting from the reform of the Minors’ Code of September 30, 2021, does not allow pre-trial detention for a minor under 16 years of age in correctional matters. Given the worsening of juvenile crime, this system absolutely must be reviewed. So, the judge is bound hand and foot. Here, the responsibility is first and foremost political. We have made the procedures as complicated as possible. The concrete reality of things is that the young delinquent, when he emerges free from this first hearing, says to himself: nothing has been done to me. A 15-year-old minor, if he is not deprived of his liberty, does not understand the seriousness of his actions. Returning to court a year later, he will no longer understand possible sanctions that could be imposed, because they are too far away in time from the first judgment. The judges themselves, a year later and faced with the same defendant, have great scruples about handing down a harsh sentence. The reform of the Juvenile Penal Code, which was carried out on the sly by the government through an ordinance, disarmed juvenile justice by creating a break in the criminal trial. Since this reform, the children’s court can only note the guilt of the minor at a first hearing and must schedule a second hearing at least 9 months apart to decide on a possible sanction.
