The manager of the Parisian restaurant Casa Nostra, targeted by the attacks of November 13, 2015, was sentenced Tuesday to
Paris to two years in prison, one suspended, for posing as a victim of these attacks in order to receive compensation. Yann Abdelhamid Mohamadi, immediately imprisoned,
had already been convicted for disclosing a video of the attack
in June to 6 months in prison suspended and 15,000 euros fine for having leaked a video of the attack of this Parisian restaurant.
Judged by the same court in a separate case, Serge Dieujuste, who admitted to being a "false victim" of November 13, was sentenced to the same sentence and was also arrested at the end of the hearing. .
Attempt of FGTI scam
In both cases, the FTGI had denied them any compensation and investigations had established that they were not at the scene of the attacks at the time of the attacks which left 130 dead and hundreds wounded.
The two forty-year-olds, who appear psychologically fragile, were tried for attempting to defraud the Guarantee Fund for Victims of Terrorism and Other Criminal Offenses (FGTI). And in both cases, the prosecution had pointed out "the financial purpose," "the lure of gain," and demanded this immediate imprisonment.
Regretting that Yann Abdelhamid Mohamadi "tried again to take advantage of the situation" after the video affair, the prosecution had demanded three years in prison, including 18 months suspended with a duty of care. Against Serge Dieujuste, the prosecution had asked for three years in prison, including a suspended sentence.
