Charges against man who killed Jewish kindergarten teacher while chanting verses from the Koran are DROPPED after it is ruled he suffered a psychotic episode by smoking cannabis
- Kobili Traore, 29, believed to have tortured Sarah Halimi in her Paris flat in 2017
- Mali immigrant shoved the 65-year-old mother from eleventh arrondissement
- He has admitted killing her but claimed he was not aware of his actions at time
- And the senior procureur général said that the killer should be sent to hospital
Traore confessed to the murder of Halimi at her Paris apartment (stock image). Psychiatric examinations of the defendant, who claims to smoke up to 15 joints per day, found his mental functioning was impaired due to his cannabis intake
The Mali immigrant then shoved the 65-year-old mother-of-three from the eleventh arrondissement building before reportedly yelling: ‘I’ve killed the Shaitan (devil)!’
Psychiatric examinations of the defendant, who claims to smoke up to 15 joints per day, found his mental functioning was impaired due to his cannabis intake.
Although three assessments determined Traore’s long-term drug habit had not inflicted him with mental illness, their verdicts differed insofar as his mental capacity during the killing.
(These continuing and growing behaviours are what generate stigma for the drug user, and rightly so! The pro-drug lobby continue to ignore or playdown these shocking and disturbing behaviours as they promote the ‘don’t label me, I have sickness that I will continue to grow by failing to be accountable for my actions or stopping drug use!’)
