Muslim group sues over “illegal” post-Paris anti-terror police raids
In the U.S., Hamas-linked CAIR discourages Muslims from talking to the FBI. That group has also opposed every counter-terror measure that has ever been implemented. And now in France, a Muslim group is suing the government for its raids after the Paris jihad massacre. When have we ever seen Muslims freely, openly, and fully cooperating with anti-terror efforts.
“Muslim group takes French government to court over ‘illegal’ anti-terror police raids,” by Tom Batchelor, Express, December 18, 2015:
Authorities in France have carried out more than 2,700 raids and enforced 360 house arrests in the month since the terror attacks, which left 130 dead.
A state of emergency has been in place since the coordinated shootings and bombings, giving authorities extra powers to conduct raids without a court warrant.
In that time 51 people have been jailed, primarily for weapons or drugs offenses.
But those caught up in the police investigations have now launched proceedings against the state, arguing the counter-terror operation that has ballooned since the attacks has unfairly targeted them.
Most of the allegations claim that the government acted illegally in placing people under house arrest for unjustified reasons or based on misinformation.
Many of the complaints also state their property has been damaged in the raids or that those being investigated have been left emotionally distressed by the intrusion.
Under French law, the Interior Ministry is allowed to target anyone it believes poses a threat to public security.
