The Minister of Justice Eric Dupond-Moretti announced on Sunday the presentation "at the end of May" in the Council of Ministers of a bill aimed at "filling" a "legal vacuum", after the Court of Cassation confirmed the criminal irresponsibility of the murderer of Sarah Halimi, a Jewish sexagenarian who was killed in 2017 in Paris.

A strong emotion within the Jewish community and beyond had followed this announcement and President Emmanuel Macron had called on the Minister of Justice to present "as soon as possible a change in the law" so that the taking of narcotics no longer leads to the end of civil liability.

Already on Friday, the Senate had declared, through the LR groups and the centrist Union, that it was going to propose to "change the law" in this direction.

While confirming the anti-Semitic nature of the crime, the highest judicial court had confirmed on April 14 the abolition of the killer's judgment, taken from a "delirious puff" during the events.

This decision aroused great emotion and a very strong incomprehension within a part of the French Jewish community, and pushed Emmanuel Macron to demand "a change of the law".

Several "gatherings of anger" are also planned for Sunday in Paris and other cities in France, at the call of citizen collectives and representatives of the Jewish community to challenge the lack of trial after the murder of Sarah Halimi.
