His arrest had made a lot of noise.
Tried last February for throwing pieces of asphalt towards police officers during a demonstration by caregivers in Paris in June 2020, Farida C., nurse, was sentenced on Tuesday to a suspended fine of 1000 euros .
Relieved of the leaders of "violent resistance" and "outrages", she was condemned for "fingers of honor" and "violence that did not result in temporary incapacity for work" against several agents of public authority.
The conviction will not be entered in his criminal record which therefore remains blank.
She will have to pay 100 and 200 euros in damages to two police officers, civil parties in the case, for the moral damage suffered.

At the end of June, Me Alimi had no news of the complaint lodged by her client with the IGPN against the police officers who had brutally arrested her.
On some videos we saw her pulled to the ground by the hair.
