Before the beheading of Samuel Paty, a parent of a pupil and the assailant exchanged messages.
A pupil’s father who had called for a mobilization on social media against Samuel Paty, the French teacher assassinated on Friday 16 October near his school in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine (Yvelines), exchanged messages with the assailant in the days that preceded the attack.
AFP learned on Tuesday from a source close to the case that these exchanges are believed to have taken place on the message server WhatsApp, added the source, confirming news from BFMTV.
The father of the female pupil had given his telephone number on Facebook in a message accompanying a video disseminated on 8 October, in which he called for mobilization against Samuel Paty after a course on the Mohammad cartoons, which, according to him, his daughter attended.
The latter, who is in 4th grade, was, indeed, a pupil of Samuel Paty, but on the day of October 6 – the day of the class on freedom of expression – she had been absent according to a source close to the case.
