    The investigation is progressing at a very slow pace with regard to Brahim A, the French daily Le Figaro explained. And the notion of a “lone wolf” attack is no longer feasible.

    The authorities found a photograph of Abdoullakh Anzorov – the Islamist who beheaded the teacher Samuel Paty on October 16 in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine – on the phone of the author of the knife attack on the Notre-Dame basilica in Nice.

    As a reminder, Brahim A is still in a coma after receiving several bullets from the police who were trying to arrest him. The individual, originally from Tunisia, arrived on French soil only two days before carrying out his terrorist attack in Nice, thanks to being transported by a German NGO posing as a migrant taxi in the Mediterranean.

    An audio message qualifying France as a “land of disbelievers” was also found on the phone of this assailant who left three dead and fifteen wounded in Nice on October 29. Investigators also got their hands on “photographs related” to the Islamic State group, revealed the National Anti-terrorism Prosecutor’s Office on Friday, November 13.

    They therefore opened a judicial investigation for “assassinations and attempted assassinations in connection with a terrorist enterprise”.

    To date, the investigation has mobilized more than 200 people and has been entrusted to investigating judges, reported Le Figaro. Since the Nice attack, eleven individuals have been placed in police custody but released “without prosecution”.

    This prompted French CNews commentator Eric Zemmour to denounce the left-leaning judiciary: “We must cut down the power of judges who have hijacked the sovereignty of the people and [we must] resort to referendums, especially on immigration.”
