It was in 2021 that the young Alisha, 14, was harassed, beaten before being drowned in the Seine. Those responsible for this horror are two teenagers, a 16-year-old boy and girl. On Thursday April 7, these two teenagers were sentenced to 10 years in prison by the juvenile court of Pontoise, Val-d’Oise. This verdict comes after four days of trial behind closed doors. “The court reclassified the facts of murder as murder of a 15-year-old minor, considering that there did not appear to be sufficiently characterized elements proving the will of preparatory acts for the death of the young girl”, according to President. “But the teenagers were fully aware of the situation and could not ignore the manifest condition of the victim who begged them,” he added.

The two defendants were silent in the box when the verdict was announced. In addition to the prison sentence, they were also ordered to pay 180,000 euros in “damages and interest for non-pecuniary damage” to the victim’s family.

“It’s not normal, I expected something from the law”

This decision did not please everyone. Indeed, Alisha’s mother was particularly shocked by the verdict. “It’s not normal, I expected something from the law. They will come out in 10 years. My daughter was killed. They killed my daughter, they threw her in the water”, had shouted in particular the mother in the halls of the court. Note that this mother was well surrounded. Many people had come with white T-shirts with the portrait of the teenager. We could also see slogans #JusticepourAlisha, #stopharassment or even “I am Alisha”.
