LIVE – Fight against Islamism: the tribute of the National Assembly to Samuel Paty


The Paris prosecutor’s office on Sunday opened an investigation after the publication on a neo-Nazi website of the photograph of the beheaded professor on Friday, AFP reports. This photograph was posted on the Twitter account of the assailant, Abdullakh Anzorov, to claim responsibility for his crime.

The survey for “dissemination of images of violence”, entrusted to the police of the brigade for the repression of delinquency against the person (BRDP), was opened after the report of the dissemination of the cliché by the French Association of Victims of Terrorism (AFVT), told AFP the Paris prosecutor’s office. The latter had filed a complaint Monday morning for “publication inciting terrorism or likely to seriously undermine human dignity,” told AFP its director general and spokesperson, Guillaume Denoix de Saint-Marc.

“We worked to remove the photo of the severed head from all social networks, which we managed to do via Pharos (platform for reporting illegal content on the internet, editor’s note), Twitter and Facebook, but there are still a few sites “which have not removed the cliché, he regretted.
