“I always knew it was difficult to file a complaint against the police or to have problems with the police.
But I realize today that it's even more than that: that they are really untouchable, it's a big family as they say,” laments Nordine, who describes himself as a real “miraculous”.
This Tuesday, November 29, he was sentenced to two years in prison on appeal, for refusal to comply and violence with a weapon by destination.
On February 18, 2022, at first instance, he was sentenced in Bobigny to two years in prison and imprisoned, before being released for medical reasons.
The court thus confirmed this judgment but without issuing a warrant of committal, given his state of health.
On August 16, 2021, BAC police officers opened fire on his vehicle during a roadside check in Stains, around 1:30 a.m., when he was trying, according to them, to flee.
Nordine was shot seven times in the body.
His companion, present in the car, was also hit by a bullet in the back.
Nordine assures that he did not understand that he was dealing with police officers that evening: "For example, police officers in uniform with flashing lights and all the distinctive signs belonging to them, there if I do not stop, yes it is a refusal to comply.
But three individuals throwing themselves at my car, trying to force their way into the passenger compartment, no, that's not a refusal to comply (…) It's flagrant errors not to identify themselves, to put themselves in danger and to blame it on me, on us, the victims",
A version contradicted by the agents of the BAC who claim to have declined their identities.

After 4 operations, including a bone graft, Nordine now has her left arm shrunk by 10 cm.
An investigation by the IGPN is still underway to determine the circumstances of the shootings.
Two of the police officers were charged with intentional violence.
“In the case where we are prosecuting them, they are indicted with a ban on working on public roads and carrying a weapon.
So for the moment we are hopeful… We still believe in this justice, and we trust it somehow, ”says the 38-year-old man.
