Samir Ameur is no stranger to justice. In July 2015, after being arrested in Bagnols-sur-Cèze (Gard), he was sentenced to five years in prison with a two-thirds security period for criminal conspiracy in connection with a terrorist group. In March 2018, he was sentenced to three nights with 105 hours of community service for failing to declare his address to the police, as he was obliged to do when he was released from prison.

On March 20, 2018, he was first sentenced to six months in prison for posting the flag on his Facebook page. This Tuesday, July 3, the court of appeal sentenced him to four years in prison.
