Halimi's mother blames the police...
Wow, the gang called her ex-husband over 650 times!
The mother of murdered French Jew Ilan Halimi has told French television that her son’s fate was “sealed in advance” and accused local police of mishandling the case.
Ilan Halimi was kidnapped and held for three weeks while his captors, led by a Muslim immigrant from Ivory Coast, demanded a ransom from his family. He was found naked and covered with cigarette burns near a suburban train station outside Paris on February 13. He died on his way to the hospital.
The police initially dismissed charges by Halima’s family and Jewish groups that anti-Semitism had contributed to the crime, even after one of the suspects told investigators last week that Halimi had been a target because he was Jewish.
“They lynched him alive, they burnt him, they cut him simply because he was Jewish,” Ruth Halimi said on French television.
She added that she believed police had not handled the affair correctly. She stressed that her ex- husband had received over 650 phone calls from the gang and the police was overwhelmed.
