But not for terrorism.Its criminal responsibility remains committed
The prosecutor of Bayonne Marc Mariée had explained Tuesday evening that the suspect had told the investigators wanted to burn the mosque of Bayonne for " to avenge the destruction of the cathedral of Paris ", which he attributes to Muslims.
"The whole of his hearing questions his state of psychic health so that he is currently presented to a psychiatrist to be informed of his criminal responsibility," added Marc Mariée. This Wednesday morning, he announced in a statement that the expertise had "concluded to a partial alteration of his judgment and / or control of his actions," but his criminal responsibility remains committed.
