Murderers of a motorcyclist will remain in prison

MidiLibre/Scoop, Jul 20

Sentenced on 28 June to 20 years’ imprisonment for murdering Frédéric Daigneau in 2008, in Toulouse, Abdallah and Hakim are to remain in prison, despite their request for release. The request was rejected by the court in Toulouse on Friday.

The two men, who deny being involved in this case, have appealed the decision of the Assize Court, so they will be re-tried.

Ten years ago this September, Frédéric Daigneau was blocked by a scooter on the bridge Saint-Michel in Toulouse. An attacker then tried to steal his bike. Frédéric resisted, and was stabbed several times. He died in hospital nine days later. It took until 2011 for the alleged offenders to be arrested, and seemingly it has taken another seven years to lock them up.
