The mother of the Toulouse shooter Mohammed Merah, who was released from custody on Saturday, does not want to go home for fear of persecution according to reports by the French newspaper the Parisien.
“She fears that someone may seek revenge on her, so for now she will not return to the place where she lived before,” said the lawyer for the woman. He also added that Merah’s mother can not forgive her deceased son for his crimes.
“She keeps asking herself why her son forced her to go through all of this,” said the lawyer.
The woman was detained for three days.
On March 19 Mohammad Merah shot three students and a teacher at a Jewish college in Toulouse.
In addition, the investigators suspect that he killed three soldiers, all paratroopers, earlier this month.
The 23-year-old Frenchman of Algerian origin, was killed on Thursday during a special police operation.
