The faces of Youssouf’s accomplices

These are the faces of the Youssouf's accomplices. Youssouf is the chief of "the barbares", the gang who tortured and killed Ilan Hallimi.

According to Le Monde (only some parts of it are reproduced and translated, for full article, in French go to the linked page of Le Monde):

[Le portable] de "Yalda" – comme dit la petite chaîne en or autour de son cou -, 17 ans, ou de Tifenn, la petite Bretonne de 19 ans, ressemblent, eux, aux joyeux abécédaires des adolescents. Une image pour chacun, des musiques pour tout le monde : amours, amitiés de classe ou de colo, connaissances d'un jour ou d'un soir, tout est bien rangé dans les mémoires alphabétiques. Le copain rappeur, c'est "Coups ki danse". A la ligne G, on trouve "Grosse pute", la fille qui a piqué le petit copain il y a deux ans. A M, il y a "mon homme" ou " mon mari", à N "cheikh G. du Nord", le mec rencontré à la gare du Nord. A Y, on trouve aussi "Youssouf le barbare".

Yalda est la jeune fille qui, le 20 janvier 2006, sur ordre de Youssouf Fofana, 25 ans, a dragué Ilan Halimi, vendeur de téléphones portables dans une boutique du boulevard Voltaire, à Paris, avant de l'attirer dans un piège qui l'a conduit vers sa mort, le 13 février, au terme d'épouvantables tortures.

Contre la promesse de 3 000 à 5 000 euros, elle a participé à la funeste entreprise. C'est son amie Tifenn G., une petite brune moins "bimbo" que ses amies de l'internat de Thiais, dans le Val-de-Marne, mais "rabatteuse" hors pair, qui l'avait recommandée. Tifenn était fournisseuse d'appâts pour Youssouf Fofana.

Translation (in brief): In the portable of Yalda -17 years old- or of Tifenn, 19 years-old, resembles any other teenagrer's PC portable, having stored lots of lovers, school companions, acquaintances of one morning or one afternoon, by alphabetical order. The rap friend, it's called "coups ki dance" -the one who dances-. Under G, we can find "Great bitch", the girl who two years ago stole her lover. AM, he is "my man" or "my husband". under the N, "cheikh G. du Nord", a boyfriend she knew in the Gare de Lyon train Station. Under Y, we find "Youssouf Le Barbare".

Yalda is the teenager who, on January 20th 2006, under orders of Youssouf Foufana, 25 years old, flirted with Ilan Halimi, a seller of mobile phones, in a shop of Voltaire's boulevard, in Paris, before driving him into a trap which ended in his death, on February 13th, after terrible tortures.

She played that role, after been promised between 3000 and 5000 €. It was her friend, Tifenn G, a little brunette less "babe" than Thais' friends on the Internet, from Val-de Marne, but very well set,that recommended her. Tifenn was Youssouf's provider of baits.

Between 3.000 and 5.000 €?. That is a lot of money and yet she did not imagine that she was leading this man into a trap? She was only 17. Who is going to pay a little girl like that so much money for nothing? Because flirting with someone is nothing. If I would have been her, perhaps I would not have thought about this type of thing but yet I would have been suspicious.

Yalda. Elève de seconde, elle est scolarisée dans le même internat que Tifenn. C'est une ravissante brune à la bouche pulpeuse. Sa mère, iranienne, est réfugiée politique, arrivée en France il y a six ans, après la mort de son mari. Sa soeur aînée est handicapée mentale. Yalda, elle, a été victime d'une "tournante", fin 2001, à l'âge de 13 ans. Elle est suivie par un juge pour enfants de Bobigny et des éducateurs spécialisés.

Fofana trouve Yalda parfaite. "Avec toi, je peux faire des merveilles, lui dit-il. Au vu de (ton) physique, (tu amasseras) des fortunes : tous les garçons tombe (ront) dans le panneau." Une nouvelle fois, il décline le plan, jusqu'au moment du rapt. Il prodigue quelques petits conseils pour "chauffer le mec" avant de l'embrasser. Yalda répond qu'elle est prête à lui "prendre la main, mais pas plus". Au passage, elle interroge Fofana sur son obsession des juifs. "Il a ajouté que nous étions des Arabes et des Noirs, qu'il fallait qu'on se soutienne. Je lui ai dit que je n'étais pas arabe et lui ai demandé s'il était raciste. Il m'a dit que non, mais que d'après lui les juifs étaient les rois, car ils bouffaient l'argent de l'Etat et, lui, comme il était noir, était considéré comme un esclave par l'Etat."

Yalda, who attends the second level, is goes to Tifenn's school. She is a very beautiful brunette with morbid lips. Her mother, an Iranian, is a political refugee, who arrived in France 6 years ago after her husband's death. Her older sister is mental handicapped. Yalda, was the victim of a "tournante" -a gruop rape-, in the end of 2001, when she was 13. She had been followed by a Minor's Judge and specialized teachers.

Youssouf Fofana finds her perfect. "with you, I can make marvellous things. With your physical appearance, you're going to make millions: all the boys fall for you". Again, he leaves his plan, till the moment of Ilan's kidnapping. He counsels her about "driving her boyfriend" to embrace. Yalda answers that she is ready to take his hand but no more. She also interviews her about his obsessions with the Jews. "He added that we were Arabs and Blacks, that we needed to unite ourselves for supporting each other. I told him I was not Arab and asked him if he was racist. He answered me that he was not, BUT that the Jews were the kings, because they ate the State's money and that he, as a Black, was considered as a slave for State".

Considered a slave for the State? He was not racist and antisemitic yet he said that the Jews were the kings? Of course, he is not a racist. According to UMP, racists are the white people, the "aboriginal" Frenchmen. If not, why do they produce this kind of ads?

But we go on with the article:

Mardi 17 janvier 2006, Yalda se fait porter pâle et sèche les cours. Fofana l'accompagne place de la République. Le chef de bande pointe du doigt les magasins qui "appartiennent à des juifs" : "Il savait cela, car il m'a expliqué qu'un jour, il y avait une cérémonie juive, et il avait repéré tous les magasins qui étaient fermés pour cette occasion", confie-t-elle à la police.

Yalda entre dans une boutique, peine à "engager le truc" avec quelques vendeurs. Un dénommé Ilan lui griffonne gentiment son numéro de téléphone sur un bout de papier. Fofana est ravi. Ils fêtent ça autour d'un panini. Une heure plus tard, Yalda rappelle le pauvre Ilan Halimi pour lui proposer un verre, le week-end prochain. A Tifenn, elle raconte qu'elle le trouve "gentil" et "mignon".

Vendredi 20 janvier. Jour fatal. Yalda a fixé rendez-vous à Ilan à 22 heures, au Paris-Orléans, un de ces cafés glauques et sans âme de la petite ceinture, aux portes de la capitale. Elle a mis son pantalon blanc et des cuissardes assorties. Ils partagent un Ice Tea et un Coca au Bouquet d'Alésia, le troquet d'à côté. Yalda raconte qu'elle habite seule à Sceaux depuis deux mois. Un dernier verre dans son petit appartement ? Le jeune homme prend sa voiture. Ils se garent sur le parking d'un gymnase proche de la Coulée verte et du supposé studio.

Tuesday January 17th 2006. Yalda is carried to the Place de la République and Fofana is with her. The gang chief points out the shops that "belong to Jews": "He knew that, because he had explained me, that one day, there were a Jewish ceremony and he remembered the shops that were closed for that occasion", she said to the police.

Yalda enters a shop, to practice the plan with some sellers. One named Ilan writes gently his phone number in a piece of paper. Fofana is delighted. They go to a panini's bar. One hour later, Yalda calls the poor Ilan to propose him having a beer, the next week-end. She tells it to Tifenn, and she says Ilan is "gentile" and "cute".

Friday January 20th. The fatal day. Yalda has fixed the meeting with Ilan at 22:00, at

Dès les premiers pas de sa promenade romantique, Yalda repère les trois agresseurs recrutés par Fofana, cachés dans un bosquet, cagoules sur le visage. Elle connaît la leçon : pour donner le signal de l'assaut, elle doit prononcer le mot "clé". Elle fouille son sac. "Je ne sais pas où sont mes clés…" La bande saute sur Ilan. "Dégage !", crie Fofana à la jeune fille, qui s'enfuit. Pendant deux minutes, avec une voix aiguë de fille", Ilan hurle, se souvient-elle. Ce long cri, c'est le seul trouble de Yalda

From the first moment of their romantic walk, Yalda had seen the three men recruited by Fofana, hidden in a plant,, fixed in the view. She knew the lesson: for giving the signal of assaulting him, she has to say "key". She searches her handbag and says "I do not know where are my keys".. The gang springs over Ilan. "Go", shouts Fofana to the young girl, who runs. The only thing that troubles Yalda is the long cry that Ilan shouts.

And she really did not suspect something? Oh, come on, she is a minor, but I do not think she can be sooooooooooooo stupid. What did Fofana want 3 men to follow them for?

Ce n'est que le 14 février, au lendemain de la mort d'Ilan – "soir de la Saint-Valentin", se souvient Yalda, qui balise ces semaines avec les repères égoïstes des nouveaux amoureux -, que l'horrible fait divers auquel elles sont mêlées les rattrape. Le portrait-robot d'Audrey, détaillé par les deux garçons qu'elle avait abordés dans la boutique de téléphonie, en janvier, occupe la "une" des journaux.

Devant les policiers, les filles pleurent un peu. Des remords ? Il faut les provoquer. Un mot de compassion pour le supplice de la victime, qu'on leur a raconté presque au jour le jour ? Elles n'y pensent pas. "J'ai fait ça pour (…) rendre service" à Youssouf Fofana, dit Tifenn. "Je ne savais pas qu'on pouvait" dénoncer par un appel anonyme, se justifie Yalda, et puis "Tifenn a dit qu'il fallait pas". "Je n'ai rien dit, car j'avais peur que ça me retombe dessus car j'en savais trop", avoue Muriel. "Pour moi, c'est un truc de malade. J'y ai cru, mais je ne réalisais pas", renchérit Isabelle, autre confidente de Yalda.

It was only February 14th, the day after Ilan's death -"the afternoon of Saint Valentine", Yalda notes, as she remembers those days as the selfish records of the new lo [she is in love with Jerome one of the gang members]- that the horrible deed is known and takes hold on them. The robot-portrait of Audarey, detailed by the two boys that she had talked with in the phone shop, in January, is at the front page in the newspapers.

In front of the policemen, the girls cry a little. Remorses? They have to be provoked. A compassive word for the victim's torture, about which we have told them? They even do not think of it. "I did it for offering a service to Yousouf Fofana", says Tifenn. "I did not know that we could denounce it anonymously", says Yalda and "Tifenn told me that it wasn't necessary". "I did not say anything because I was scared that they were after me, thinking that I knew more", says Muriel. "For me, it was a a very bad trick. I believed it, but I did not realise it", says Isabelle, other of Talda's confidants.

She did not know what happened, I did it for Fofana,… They really do not care that their role was crucial in the kidnapping (and as a result the torture and death) of Ilan. And they are in their teens. I wonder what they will do in ten or twenty years time, what education they are going to give their sons, and, best of all, what is the future of a country -and a continent- with this future citizens -and their mates- as the ruling class
