Life imprisonment for Quebec mosque attacker
The attacker who killed 6 Muslims in a mosque in Canada was sentenced to life imprisonment.
29-year-old Alexandre Bissonnette, who is convicted of martyring of 6 Muslims by attacking a mosque in 2017 in Canada, was sentenced to life imprisonment.
According to the court's decision, Bissonnette will be able to demand parole after 25 years.
The prosecution had requested 150 years in prison for Bissonnette, but Judge Francois Huot when announced the verdict, said, "the punishment should not turn into revenge."
On the evening of January 29, 2017, Bissonnette entered the Quebec Islamic Cultural Center during a prayer, martyred six people and injured five others from the mosque community. Aymen Derbali, one of an injured mosque member, has been paralyzed after the attack.
