Exceptional Criminal Cases

Terrorism (the Barjols’ case)

A young adult was apprehended by the Directorate-General for Internal Security (DGSI) for his involvement in a widely publicized terrorist conspiracy project. He was accused of plotting an assassination attempt against the President of the Republic in 2018.

After several years of investigation and a quick release by the Investigative Chamber, the law firm successfully obtained the complete acquittal of the client in front of the Criminal Court. The national anti-terrorism prosecutor’s office did not appeal this acquittal.

YL Avocats, in collaboration with other defense attorneys, vigorously contested the content of the custody reports during the trial and requested the viewing of the custody videos to highlight significant issues in the transcription by the investigators.
