He told that six hundred people have already been sent to jail.
French Justice Minister Eric Dupond-Moreti told RTL Radio during a conversation that action against the culprits was very important. It was necessary that we restore the national order. These decisions will create fear in the minds of rioters in future. He further said that there is no place in the country for those who violate the law.
There was a ruckus on the death of the teenager
Significantly, since 2005, the riots started in France on June 27, when a policeman shot and killed 17-year-old teenager Nahel. After this incident, the whole of France including the capital was burning. With the help of 45,000 policemen and thousands of firefighters, the situation was brought under control. The policeman who killed Nahel was dismissed and sent to jail.
The uproar this time was bigger than the 2005 riots
According to the French Minister of Justice, a total of more than 3,700 people were arrested during the riots in the country, including a large number of minors. Which were presented in different courts. Some of them were released immediately, while some were sentenced to severe punishment. He told that this time the number of people who got jail sentence is more than the number at the time of last major riots in 2005 when around 400 people were sent to jail.
