The father of Toulouse killer Mohammed Merah reportedly is suing police for allegedly murdering his son.
Mohamed Benalel Merah filed a lawsuit against the RAID elite police who shot his son.
“This is a suit against unnamed persons for murder with aggravating circumstances concerning those who gave the orders at the top of the police,” Isabelle Coutant-Peyre, a member of the legal team representing Mohamed Benalel Merah, told AFP.
Mohammed Merah, who murdered four at a Jewish school in Toulouse, was killed last March by police after a 32-hour siege at his house in the southern France city. Merah was fatally shot while jumping from his window during a daylong siege on his apartment in Toulouse.
“You’ve got 300 to 400 heavily armed people and a guy shut up all alone in his apartment. That alone is enough to raise questions,” Coutant-Peyre said.
Merah had confessed to the school killings, which included a rabbi and two of his young sons, and the daughter of the school’s headmaster. He filmed himself carrying out the attacks.
AFP reported that the head of the legal team, Algerian attorney Zahia Mokhtari, said he has evidence that Merah was “liquidated,” including videos that Merah filmed himself during the siege.JTA
