Armand, 26 years old, a face and a name known to the intelligence services and the justice system. French, of Iranian origin, S file for radicalization. In 2016, he had already been arrested and then sentenced to four years in prison for a planned violent attack in the La Défense district. Described by his family as fragile and easily influenced, it was on the internet that the young man was radicalized when he was only 17 years old.
His family was worried
“His family quickly became very worried about his conversion and his radicalization, because unlike other terrorists, it was a radicalization that took place via the internet, he did not live in an Islamist breeding ground, his family was not Muslim and fled Iran.details Audrey Goutard, police-justice specialist at France Télévisions.
