Suspected Geneva jihadist on trial in Paris


A suspected jihadist fighter arrested in Geneva in 2017 and deported to France is on trial in Paris.

The 45-year-old French and Tunisian national who drove a taxi in Geneva was seized by police in Meyrin. 

He’s accused of recruiting jihadists in Geneva and Gex, in neighbouring France, and helped them to get to Syria.

The man has told the court he’s innocent and acted out of naivety. 

A verdict is expected by the end of the week.
