Trial of the November 13 attacks: Ten defendants refuse to appear

Ten defendants in the case of the November 13th attacks were unable to appear Tuesday before the Paris special assize court, which forced President Jean-Louis Peries and the Paris Police to suspend the hearing.

The president announced to the court that ten defendants were detained, out of eleven. He did not specify the reasons for the move. Only Mohammed Amri was in the box.

Lawyers state that the ten absent defendants would stand in solidarity with Muhammad Usman from Pakistan, who has an eye problem and was absent from Monday's hearing due to this reason. According to the defense and civil parties, the defendants who stand in solidarity with Muhammad Usman think that the latter is not being treated properly.

President Peries appointed a bailiff to issue the "usual summons" to absent defendants. After these summons are issued, President Peries may override the absence of the accused and continue the hearing or suspend it.

The hearing was scheduled for Tuesday and would be followed by the pleadings of civil lawyers.
