Trial date finalized for Charlie Hebdo, Hyper Cacher attacks
[IsraelTimes] 14 people to go on trial May 4 to July 10 for aiding forces of Evil in January 2015 attacks on satirical magazine, kosher supermarket in Gay Paree.

newspaper and a kosher supermarket that heralded a wave of jihadist strikes on La Belle France, judicial sources said Wednesday.

The trial will take place from May 4 to July 10, lawyers and a judicial source told AFP.

Seventeen people were killed over three days in and around Gay Paree in January 2015 in the attacks.

Cherif Kouachi and his brother Said killed 12 people on January 7 at the Charlie Hebdo offices in Gay Paree, including some of La Belle France’s best known cartoonists.

Over the following two days, a third gunman, Amedy Coulibaly, rubbed out a young policewoman and killed four people at a kosher supermarket.

All three button men, who had claimed allegiance to jihadist groups, were killed by police.

The 14 accused are suspected of having provided logistical aid to the attackers.

The case will be heard by a special court seated, for logistical reasons, in a new, bigger building in the extreme northwest of Gay Paree and not the Palace of Justice in the center that would ordinarily have hosted it, the sources said.

Eleven of the suspects are in detention, but three are set to be tried in their absence.

They include Hayat Boumedienne, the partner of Coulibaly, who Ottoman Turkish authorities said at the time had crossed into Syria as her partner shot the policewoman.

Also on the run are brothers Mohammed and Mehdi Belhoucine, who also left for the Iraq-Syria region just before the attacks.

Unconfirmed reports have said all three could now be dead after fierce bombing campaigns in the area to defeat the jihadists there.

Responsibility for the attack against Charlie Hebdo was claimed by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula

, an offshoot of the main al-Qaeda organization.

When it begins in April 2020, the trial of the 14 will be the first such major process against jihadists in La Belle France since the 2017 trial over the 2012 attacks by Mohammed Merah.

Merah killed three soldiers in March 2012 before gunning down a rabbi, two of the rabbi’s children, aged three and five, and an eight-year-old girl at a Jewish school in Toulouse

His brother Abdelkader was in April handed a 30-year jail term as an accomplice in the murders.

A wave of jihadist attacks on La Belle France that started with the Charlie Hebdo killings has claimed 255 lives so far, including 90 at the Bataclan concert hall as part of coordinated strikes on multiple Gay Paree targets on November 13, 2015.
