“When I saw this draw, I said to myself “it’s too good”. Jurisprudence prevents control on the basis of a single anonymous call. This is the first course in criminal procedure for the second year of law, I did not work a miracle, ”underlines the rapper’s lawyer, Me Naïri Zadourian.
This young criminal lawyer, who had barely six months at the bar, was then experiencing dazzling popularity. His number will circulate among dealers, to the point of forcing him to hire collaborators. “Maître Zadourian” is even one of the titles of DA Uzi’s latest album, released in 2022.
“In court, I have nothing to fear, I have master Le Bras”, raps Booba who frequently praises his lawyer in his songs. So much so that his name “circulates on radio zonzon”, recognizes Yann Le Bras, who defends notorious traffickers as well as the actress Adèle Haenel.
Look for vices
In drug cases, the lawyers divide the files according to “their competence in procedure, in hearing or in raising nullities”.
“If you miss a procedural defect, it’s a capital mistake. When you are caught with half a ton of cocaine, it is very difficult to defend yourself otherwise, ”says Me Tarek Koraitem, who made a name for himself by defending a cocaine dealer who supplied TV stars.
For Me Léa Canches, “the first reflex is to force a weighing and testing of the searched product”. Finding CBD can cancel a procedure. “The Penal Code is screwed up,” says Me Zadourian. “The same article condemns for the acquisition, transport, transfer, supply and regardless of the quantity”.
Advocate and advise
“I had a kid who goes to court with 30 grams and comes back again three months later for another 30 grams”, adds the lawyer, “but this time he is no longer at risk of ten years but twenty because it is recidivism”. “There is a colossal expectation from the police, the investigating judge, the prosecutor, from public opinion, so heads must roll,” agrees Me Koraitem.
The dealers’ lawyers also provide “a manual” to avoid the prison box. Thus, “one avoids giving his telephone code in police custody even if it constitutes an offense. It is better to be sentenced for this offense than on what we will find on the phone, ”says a lawyer on condition of anonymity.
