France: Hundreds demand justice for Adama Traore in Paris

Several hundred people hit the streets of Paris on Saturday to denounce the findings of a new expert report into the death of Adama Traore, a young man who died in police custody in July 2016. The findings exonerate the gendarmes of responsibility for the death, saying his health was to blame. Marching under the banner 'Justice for Adama', participants held banners and chanted slogans, and... Еще called for the 'true' reasons for his death to be revealed. Traore died in police custody in July 2016, after complaining of difficulty breathing following being arrested alongside his brother after a short chase. His family and other supporters have consistently blamed his death on being beaten by the Gendarmes who then failed to provide medical attention. The fourth expert medical report into the circumstances surrounding his death was released on October 3. The report claims that the 24 year old was suffering from both a sickle cell disease and sarcoidosis, a disease that normally affects the lungs and can make breathing difficult. Speaking at the protest, Adama's sister Assa denied that he suffered from either of these conditions and said «we are being told a lie by the state that we want to denounce and say that it is false. We ask for justice and truth for Adama.»
