Then over 300 residents of the French capital suffered.
Frenchwoman Alexandra Damien received two years in prison for pretending to be a victim of the 2015 terrorist attack. She deceived the police, received government benefits and financial assistance. In three incidents in Paris, 130 died and 350 people were injured.
The 33-year-old Parisian woman was sentenced to two years in prison, but she would spend six months in jail, after which she could be released on parole. At trial, Damien burst into tears, pleaded guilty and stated that she “fully repented.” The French lawyer added that he considers the verdict “smart and fair,” since the prosecutor requested 18 months of mandatory detention for her without the possibility of going through parole.
In 2015, Damien stated that she was near the Cariyon cafe when he was attacked by terrorists. She joined the Life for Paris victims association and received 20 thousand euros from the Guarantee Fund of Victims of Terrorism (FGTI). As evidence, the Parisian showed a scar on her arm from being hit by a submachine gun; she also took part in a symbolic photo shoot of the victims of the terrorist attack.
