Lawyer of Paris Terror Suspect Calls Him a ‘Moron… Who Thinks He Lives in a Video Game’
Salah Abdeslam, believed to be the ringleader of the terrorists that killed hundreds in Paris months ago, was extradited to France today and slapped with multiple terrorism charges.
He is being represented by Belgian lawyer Sven Mary, who, according to ABC News, made some interesting comments about his client.
Mary admitted he has a few reservations about this case, and described Abdeslam thusly:
“He’s a little moron from Molenbeek involved in petty crimes; more of follower than a leader. He has the intelligence of an empty ashtray. He is the perfect example of the Grand Theft Auto generation who thinks he lives in a video game.”
He also told Liberation (a French publication) that Abdeslam learned about the Qu’ran online, and for minds like his, “the Net is the maximum they can understand.”
Abdeslam was captured months after the Paris attack in a Belgian police raid.
