(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #273 - Police brutality: Lamine Dieng's murder, ten years without justice (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 16 Jun 2017 10:48:14 +0300

Since the murder of Lamine Dieng by policemen of XX century in Paris in 2007, her family demands that the perpetrators of what she calls " a barbaric homicide committed in organized gangs " be charged . ---- For 30 minutes, Lamine was held face down by 300 kg, the total weight of the officers kneeling on his back after having stuck his ankles and handcuffed his hands, one arm passed over the shoulder and the other folded into the back. The final conclusions of the medical appraisals are overwhelming: " Mechanical asphyxia by suffocation, suffocation due to facial support against the ground with pressure from the top of the head ". But the perpetrators of the crime, identified, have enjoyed ten years of impunity, which are ten years of denial of justice for Lamine.

The irregularities of the procedures are nevertheless quite obvious: no sealing of the van in which Lamine Dieng died, nor shirts polished blood of the police officers, disappearance of his, no photos of the clues raised or even the scene Crime ; The CD-Rom handed over by the DOSTL (operational management of technical and logistical services) is illegible by the investigators, the investigating judge refuses the re-enactment of the crime scene, the murderers are heard under the status of assisted witnesses, Instruction is endless ... and followed by a non-place. The judiciary never wanted to admit the responsibility of these police officers.

The magistrate, Patrick Gachon, refused to open a lawsuit against those who choked Lamine and those who compressed his chest and head, on the pretext that the technique of ventral plating is not prohibited in France.

The murderous torturers rewarded

Except that police training requires that the barbaric technique (and prohibited in other countries) of the key, which they used, lasts no more than a few minutes because otherwise it results in death. The murderous torturers have since been rewarded by career advances.

The highest authorities in the country are doing all they can to avoid legal consequences for police officers who commit such crimes. Since February 2017, a law has also made it easier for police officers to use firearms against unarmed persons. Even if it is still the stage of the Court of Cassation, these ten years show that when truth and justice are sought, deferring to the judiciary and other institutions is useless. What should we do ? This is the question posed by Stolen Lives, the collective of support and mutual aid created by Lamine's family with other families of victims. Together, let us put an end to denials of justice when the police torture and kill !

This year, after a basketball tournament organized in the memory of Lamine April 16 at the Stade Louis Lumière, the next meeting will be June 17 at the 58, rue des Amandiers (Paris XX th ). Program: 10h30, video projection, 12h press conference, 14h march, 18h concert of support.
