A complaint filed

The anger of a father on social networks

If this course was given, the facts did not happen as declared by this student, absent on October 6. Samuel Paty did show caricatures of the Prophet, and warned some students that these images could shock them and that they could leave or hide their eyes, respecting the faith of their 4ths. But the lie is launched and the father’s anger erupts.

On social networks, the one who is today indicted for “complicity in murder”, publishes a video denouncing acts attributed to Samuel Paty and disseminates the name and professional contact details of the teacher. This video is quickly taken up and used until it comes to the knowledge of the 18-year-old terrorist, Abdoullakh Anzorov, who contacts this father.

Islamist activist flirting with incitement to hatred

“The sweet scar”: the fatal link between videos and a terrorist

Priscilla M. alias “The sweet scar” on the networks is then interested in “the affair” of the college of Conflans. She contacted the father of the college girl just after the broadcast of his video. The latter will never answer this call. The young woman then “retweets” on her account the first hateful video which delivers information allowing Samuel Paty to be identified. Among the subscribers to Priscilla M.’s channel are many radicalized including Abdoullakh Anzorov with whom she communicates by private messages. The young jihadist then comes to ask him for additional information on his future prey.

A jihadist in search of a “fight”

The chain reaction therefore ends up in Abdullakh Anzorov. This 18-year-old Russian citizen of Chechen origin and radicalized for nearly a year ends up stumbling upon the videos of Brahim Chnina and Abdelhakim Sefrioui thanks to Priscilla M. The one who was unknown to French intelligence is fascinated by jihad and finds in Samuel Paty, his “fight” which will make him a martyr.
