French investigators Piled up Research into November 2015 Paris Strikes, and paving way for trial

Investigations in the November 2015 terror attacks that killed 130 people within a day at Paris are now closed,” prosecutors said in an announcement on Monday, paving the way for a trial.

Investigations led to 14 indictments, prosecutors stated, such as 11 pre-trial detentions.

Three other suspects are awaiting trial under judicial oversight, the announcement said.

Arrest warrants are out for six people suspected of participation, at least a few of whom are thought to have been killed in fighting in Syria or Iraq.

Anti-terror prosecutors currently have up to a month to present their decisions to the judges, who will then declare a trial date.

There’ll be more 1,740 civil parties to the situation, the announcement said.

On November 13, 2015, France’s national soccer stadium, caf├ęs, restaurants and also a concert hall have been targeted by a set of coordinated strikes, where the so-called Islamic Condition team claimed responsibility.

The strikes started with suicide blasts beyond the Stade de France, the national arena north of Paris, through a friendly soccer match between France and Germany attended by then-president Francois Hollande.

Outside the Bataclan theater, 90 individuals were gunned down during a rock concert.

Seven attackers, many of whom had French or Belgian citizenship, were murdered.

Salah Abdeslam, the only surviving suspected offender, is at a French prison awaiting his trial, which might not occur until late 2020.
