Amandine Le Coz did not always find the words, but she cried a lot during the two days that her trial lasted. This 32 -year -old French -man converted to “strong psychoaffective immaturity” and at “low intellectual level”, according to his psychiatric expertise, was sentenced on Friday, March 3, to ten years’ imprisonment for having joined the ranks of the Islamic State organization (IS) between 2014 and 2018.
