It was initially a case resulting from a disagreement between two childhood friends. In March 2011, Mehdi was murdered in the Belleville district of Paris. A fight broke out because Mehdi, who had dual French and Tunisian nationality, could not stand seeing his friend Hassan gassing a neighbor’s dog. This is what Inès Ettir, Mehdi’s big sister, who still lives in the neighborhood, relates.

During this fight, Mehdi gained the upper hand, as several witnesses recount in the minutes. But Hassan B. took revenge the next day. “He was waiting for my brother downstairs from my mother’s house“, relates Inès Ettir. “He told her: ‘vCome on, let’s talk. They grew up together, my brother wasn’t suspicious, but he didn’t see that he had a knife. He gave him the first blow in the thigh, another in the buttock. My brother ran but as he was losing blood, he fell. He tried to get up, but then the murderer came, kicked him in the head, then delivered another blow that pierced his lung and heart. And he fled to Morocco.”

Imaginary suicide and fake funeral

Three months later, one of Hassan B.’s brothers came to submit a death certificate to the judicial police in Paris. “He tells them that his brother committed suicide in Morocco”, explains the victim’s sister. “In fact, it was the dad who managed to have a false death certificate made at the civil registry in Rabat. Then there was a funeral, the coffin, the lifting of the body… Everything was false, and fortunately the judicial police investigators dismantled the scheme. They managed to crack down on family members who live in France. How could they do this? They probably thought they were very powerful… But I was lucky to have very good lawyers in France and Morocco.”

The Parisian judicial police investigators actually ended up proving that everything was false. Hassan B. was sentenced in his absence in Paris to 25 years in prison in 2015, according to Parisian lawyer Joseph Cohen-Sabban. As Hassan B. is of Moroccan nationality, he ended up being tried in Rabbat, without extradition possible. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison there this Tuesday, and immediately appealed, according to our information.

The victim’s sister, Inès, also appealed. “I will not give up, I will continue my fight whatever happens, to do justice to my brother and so that my family can be peaceful. indicates this one. The appeal trial is expected to take place within the next two months.
