  • November 2015 Paris attacks trial: Key suspect Salah Abdeslam back in court

    Key suspect Salah Abdeslam has claimed that he bears no responsibility for the 130 people who were killed in the Paris terror attacks of November 2015. His testimony, during a terse exchange with magistrates, drew anger from survivors and their families, who've also been criticising the decision by defence lawyers to stage a walkout during Tuesday’s hearing. To discuss this and more, we're joined for Perspective by Arthur Dénouveaux, a survivor of the attack on the Bataclan and president of the Life for Paris association.

  • Paris Terror Attacks Trial: "The course of justice will carry on without" Salah Abdeslam

    William Julié, Criminal and human rights lawyer, does not believe the aggressive stance Salah Abdeslam is taking at the trial will make any difference. "The course of justice will carry on without him." Mr. Julié points out that "nobody was expecting anything else ... he has not been saying anything from Day 1, and he has been complaining about what was happening to him in custody. He always has." Responding to concerns that many of the defendants might also take a defiant stance, thereby tarnishing the credibility of the system, Mr. Julié is not convinced that "they will all go the same way as Salah Abdeslam." Especially since not all of the defendants risk "life in prison, which is where (Abdeslam) is going, obviously."
