He sold cannabis to survive

On February 28, a resident of Rue Turenne alerted police patrolling the area to round up Abdul, who was selling on Boulevard Jacques Bertrand. After an unsuccessful escape attempt, he was arrested. Abdul had a large aluminum cannabis tablet, as well as 145 euros in small bills. Faced with justice, the young man confirms that he owned for his own consumption, but also sold. “I bought 80g of cannabis a month. And I sold the surplus to survive and buy food.” Sentenced to 80 hours in Namur for similar acts, Abdul escaped the harsh prison sentence the prosecution demanded. Instead of 18 months, the defendant receives a year with a new measure of favor in the form of a simple deferral of 5 years.
