(Alternate title: Who really burned down the Basilica of St. Denis)
An original translation by Oz-Rita with much thanks!
St. Denis is nearly exclusively inhabited now by Arabs/Muslims/Blacks — a no-go zone.
The Basilica of Saint-Denis is the last resting place of the Kings of France.
Saint-Denis: the alleged vandal of the basilica will be judged in May
A 41-year-old man appeared this Friday before the Court in Bobigny on charges of damaging the organ in the Basilica. The hearing has been postponed until May 10.
A dialogue of the deaf. “I don’t know how I’m involved in this case,” the defendant told the Bobigny court on Friday. Suspected of having damaging two doors, several stained glass windows and the organ of the Basilica of Saint-Denis in March, this 41-year-old man is being brought to trial for immediate appearance.
When asked whether he would prefer to postpone the date of his trial to prepare his defence, as provided for in the procedure, he replied that he “does not understand the French judicial system.”
Incriminated by his DNA
The 40-year-old was arrested on Thursday at the detention centre in Vincennes (Val-de-Marne), incriminated by his DNA found in the basilica. A Pakistani national, he arrived in France two months ago and does not speak French. He has already been cautioned by the law twice for damaging property in February.
Annoyed, the president of the court suggests that “the situation is not very difficult to understand” and reiterates her question. “How can I explain if I don’t understand it?” he persists.
The magistrate ended up wondering whether he “deliberately did not understand”. The court finally decided to postpone the trial until 10 May, and to place the accused in pre-trial detention until that date.
A psychiatric assessment was ordered.

Degraded the Basilica where the Kings of France sleep… I hope the punishment will be heavy

“Why am I being prosecuted by French law? I don’t understand . . . Islamic law is so vastly superior . . . Muslims are supposed to attack kuffars and vandalize their inferior institutions; as a Muslim, it’s my responsibility to do so . . . How dare you contradict the Sharia!”

Pathetically inaccurate reporting from the Continent, as EUsual. If his words are correctly interpreted, what the defendant failed to understand was why his own laws weren’t being applied to him. That he even had to bring it to other people’s notice must have shocking.
Back home, damaging a history reliquary was a relatively straight forward matter. Ordinarily taking an hour or three from start to finish. Namely:
If caught damaging Pakistan’s own resting place of kings, apprehension, trial, punishment, and complimentary gathering of the remains with tweezers, would be over and done with in mere hours—at least the perp dearly hopes it would be. Some major “investigations” can drag on for (seemingly) endless days.
Be advised that any body bag coming from a container not labeled “Glad” really ups the bill.
If he was told that all charges against him are to be dropped and he will be given a lot of money in compensation, I feel sure he’d understand that.
BREAKING NOTRE DAM CATHEDRAL IS ON FIRE
If we miss one, we’ll surely get more opportunities.
