Thirteen people are on trial in France for their roles in the massive harassment campaign of a French teen critical of Islam that saw at least 100,000 hate messages sent to her.
The trial for the thirteen defendants began this week on Wednesday in the Paris criminal court, with several in the case accused of sending death threats to a French teen identified as Mila, who released a video critical of Islam on social media in January and November of last year.
The incident, which became known in France as the “Mila Affair,” has led to so many threats against the teen that her lawyer Richard Malka stated that she was forced to be under police protection 24 hours a day, broadcaster Franceinfo reports.
