President of Israel Reuven (Ruvi) Rivlin yesterday sent a letter to President Emmanuel Macron of France regarding the decision that the accused in the murder of Sarah Halimi ז”ל is unfit to stand trial.

In the letter, he wrote, “I heard with sorrow of the decision of the French Supreme Court to confirm the decision of the lower courts that the accused in the antisemitic, brutal and terrible murder of Sarah Halimi is unfit to stand trial.

“I appreciate your ethical and legal position and your determination to introduce an amendment to the criminal code. Your quick and clear response sends a clear message to the family of the victim and to France as a whole that law as it currently stands is deficient, and that deficiency has allowed a despicable murderer to evade justice and punishment,” he added.

“The facts of the case are accepted: Dr. Sarah Halimi was a victim of a despicable murder by a cruel murderer because she was Jewish, and everything must be done to send a clear message that there is, and will not, be any tolerance of sick and despicable antisemitism and attacks on Jews because of their ethnicity and religion,” said the president, adding once again in appreciation for the President of France’s commitment to this important and just campaign.
