    According to the minister, the nine jihadists convicted of terrorism who will be set free, “will not be left unattended for a minute”. As a criminal lawyer, Dupond-Moretti defended the brother of terrorist Mohammed Merah before he became minister.

    Invited by LCI on Friday, November 13, five years after a series of jihadist attacks, Dupont-Moretti took stock of these detainees whose situation, after their upcoming release, raises serious questions.

    “They will not be left unattended for a minute, the French must know it,” he said and spoke of a double “judicial and police” surveillance. He did not give any details regarding the cost of such an operation.

    He also rejected all criticism. In response, the Minister of Justice complained that it was “the same people who tell you, when it comes to voting for the Stop-Covid application that it was liberticidal”. He added that the reasoning of such critics were a “total inconsistency”, apparently unaware of the irony of his remarks: Ordinary, healthy French citizens do not pose a danger to the country.

    French lawyer Thibault de Montbrial, who specializes in the defense of internal security forces (police, gendarmerie, army), self-defense, the defense of victims of crimes, collective accidents and terrorist acts as well as the criminal liability of leaders, in an interview, trashed such a notion.

    “With the return of veterans from Syria and Iraq, the fear of an attack is once again very high,” he said. “Europe and France must exert pressure on the countries of origin so that they recover the people we want to deport,” Thibault de Montbrial told La Matinale.

    “The link between immigration and terrorism has long been demonstrated. For 40 years, there has been a strong immigration. Islamism has entered France massively with part of this population. This immigration has helped destabilize our society.”

    In an interview with the weekly Le Parisien Magazine of January 6, 2017, reviewing the incidents of Viry-Chatillon in 2016, he had already warned: “We must adapt to the violence on the ground. It is not logical that the police are subject to the same rules as other citizens when it comes to self-defense. Their job exposes them to daily criticism. The police are also faced with an increase in violence, and are sometimes even seen as rival gangs more than as representatives of the State.”

    After the attacks of November 13, 2015 in France, he confirmed his concern: “France has emerged from 70 years of peace.” In particular, he said that the political class was one of the main culprits, guilty of “forty years of renunciation”.
