CASE №00609
NAME: Nathaniel
COUNTRY: France
RIGHTS VIOLATION: Police brutality
YEAR: 2023
CASE INFORMATION:

Nathaniel, 19, a resident of Montreuil, France, lost his left eye after being shot with a traumatic gun by a police officer as Nathaniel walked home with a friend on the night of June 28-29, the first night of urban riots in France following the death of young Nahel, who was killed by a police officer.

The police officers mistook Nathaniel and his friend for rioters and first used tear gas on them, but when the young men tried to get away from the officers, they shot the young men. The bullet hit Nathaniel directly in the eye, after which he was taken to hospital. There, seven facial fractures were recorded and he was operated on twice. According to doctors, Nathaniel’s injured eye will never be able to see again.

At the moment, the investigative committee is checking the case, but Nathaniel does not hope for a fair investigation. According to him, the police are trying to find any evidence that he participated in the street riots and posed a danger to the policeman who shot him in order to justify his illegal actions and hide from justice.
