23 Jan 2011 - On January 12th, three people were arrested in Belleville, Paris. They are accused of graffiti in solidarity for the revolt in Maghreb: “Algérie – Tunisie / Insurrection“, “Vive l’anarchie“.
First under arrest in the local police station, the special anti-terrorist brigade of the well known 36 Quai des Orfevres took over that case, and has transferred them to their offices. The next Friday, they were put in prison.
One person was released on January 19th though she’s still under judicial control, whereas the two other still await their trial inside.
On December 20th, Bruno was arrested in Paris during a so common identity check in the metro, used to separate those who have papers and the “others”.
He´s under anti-terrorist investigation in the “fumigenes” (home made torches) case since January 2008, and accused of “transportation and detention of explosive or incendiary material” (the torches); torches prepared for a demonstration in front of the Vincennes Detention Center for migrants.
At the beginning of 2008, he was imprisoned for 4 and a half months. In July, he decided to refuse his judicial control, and was on the run since then. Following this decision, he was wanted by police.
Though the investigation was supposed to be closed on January 2011, he was caught on December 20th and imprisoned in Fresnes.
