Salah Abdeslam was found guilty of “participation in a terrorist criminal association” and sentenced to life in prison without the right to parole. He is the only survivor of a group of members of the self-styled Islamic State, who carried out a series of terrorist attacks on November 13, 2015 in Paris. Attacks in which 130 people died and which have been considered the deadliest since the end of World War II in France.
In addition to Salah Abdeslam, the court also sentenced 19 other men involved in the same events, after a trial that took almost 10 months and kept French society on edge.
What does this condemnation mean for France? What lessons does it leave in terms of security and terrorism? Is a life sentence without the right to parole a just sentence? Today, after this verdict was announced, you can look back and see what went wrong on November 13, 2015 in France. We analyze it together with our guests:
– Chema Gil, director of security studies at UNIVERSAE, with a degree in security from the University of Murcia and a diploma in International Studies on Terrorism from the UNESCO Chair.
– Julián Mateos, security and defense policy analyst.
