“He left defending the honor of all Chechens and all Muslims in the world.
“During a filmed interview, in his native language, with a Chechen influencer in June 2021, the father of the assassin of Samuel Paty in October 2020 claims to be “satisfied” with the crime committed by his son Abdoullakh, 18 years old.
The victim, a history and geography teacher at the Conflans-Sainte-Honorine college (Yvelines), had shown caricatures of Muhammad in class a few days earlier, angering Abdoullakh Anzorov, shot dead by the police shortly after his attack and whose body was repatriated to Chechnya.
During his hearings, his father, 43, had until then always expressed his pain, his regrets and his love for France which had welcomed him as a political refugee.
But this time, facing the camera, in a video broadcast by several Eastern European media but which went almost unnoticed in France, he made very different comments.
"I raised Abboullakh this way: you must love God more than your own parents," says the assassin's father.
He is a good son, who received a religious education as required by the Chechen tradition.
Remarks that may be similar to the apology of terrorism and could earn him legal proceedings... but not radiation from the private security professions.
The man, like his brother, works in this sector of activity where it is compulsory to have a professional card, awarded after a control of the morality of the applicant, carried out by the National Council for Private Security Activities (Cnaps).
And the murderer's father's card was renewed in 2019, for five years.
It is therefore free to carry out security or surveillance activities on a site anywhere in France.
"We have no information to withdraw his professional card"
“We cannot be blamed for anything, we consult the police files and this gentleman is not convicted, his record is blank, so we have no element to withdraw his professional card, indicates the prefect Cyrille Maillet , director of Cnaps.
And I remind you that our services worked well since, twice, during his requests, we prevented the murderer, Abdoullakh Anzorov, from obtaining a card and therefore from working in private security.

The refusals of the Cnaps dating from April and September 2020 (a few weeks before the attack), are justified by the presence of three mentions in the criminal record of the future assassin of Samuel Paty, when he was still a minor: degradations committed in 2015, and violence committed in a meeting in front of his college, in 2017 and then in 2018.
But shortly after the assassination, Cnaps agents also brought to light about thirty companies that had been linked to the Anzorov family, some whose managers offered to host Abdoullakh, others offering him training, before even if he doesn't get his professional card...
“We gave all this information to justice and we give them priority”
“But since the assassination and despite the discovery of this nebula of companies in connection with the assassin of Samuel Paty, the management told us that it was too sensitive a subject, sighs a Cnaps controller.
We asked several times, but we were not allowed to go and check these structures.
We don't know what becomes of them or what happens there.

The director of the Cnaps considers that it is advisable to wait still.
“There was a judicial requisition, we gave all this information to justice and we give them priority, comments the prefect Maillet.
This is the reality of a rule of law.
