Sexual assault, violence, murder... the gruelling judicial marathon of Shaïna's family


Highlights: Shaïna was found stabbed to death and burned in a shed in Creil in October 2019. Four men were convicted of sexual assault on the girl in August 2017. They were sentenced to 6 months in prison suspended for 2 years. A second trial for the murder of Shaïna begins on Monday, June 5. "It's an ordeal to go through all this," says the victim's mother, Parveen. "We are holding on thanks to our faith, the support of the people," she says.

While the trial for murder of the girl opens this Monday before the assize court of minors of the Oise, four men have been

In the lobby of the courthouse in Amiens (Somme), Parveen and Shakill Hansye seem disappointed. On June 1, they came to hear the deliberations of the juvenile chamber of the Court of Appeal in the case of sexual assaults committed in August 2017 on their daughter Shaïna. Two years later, their little girl was found stabbed to death and burned alive in a shed in Creil on October 25, 2019.

But the grieving parents finally had to wait until Thursday, June 1 to know the decision of the court: prison sentences ranging from 6 months suspended to 2 years suspended for the four elderly men, from 14 to 17 years old at the time of the facts, who were not even present in the courtroom. "It's nonsense," said Yasin, the victim's brother, visibly tired of two gruelling trials in this case, the first part of Shaïna's three-part ordeal.

But no time to really dwell on this failure. Barely out, the family must already focus on another trial: that of the murder of Shaïna, which begins Monday, June 5 before the assize court of minors of Oise. This is the third in the space of a year and a half.

"It's an ordeal to live all this"

And the "judicial marathon" is not about to stop. One of the young men convicted of sexual assault was referred on March 17, 2023, to the Senlis juvenile court, where he is to be tried – with another person – for acts of "aggravated violence", "theft" and "threat" committed on Shaïna in May 2019, a few months before his death. That day, the girl had woken up in the hospital after being beaten at the corner of a street, possibly for having denounced the facts of sexual assault of which she had been victim two years earlier.

Not to mention a possible appeal after the verdict of the Assize Court to be rendered next Friday. "It's an ordeal to go through all this," says Yasin. I am 25 years old today and I have never had a youth. "The pain, there is only that since the departure of our daughter," whispers her mother Parveen. However, there is no question of "giving up". "We are holding on thanks to our faith, the support of the people and especially for Shaïna," said Yasin, who called for a rally in front of the Beauvais courthouse before the trial began.
