Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not sure about this, to tell the truth.
I rationnally understand that it is not a good thing to put someone to death, nevertheless, I'm not entirely convinced that this could/should apply to politically oriented crime, in the sense that the criminal here wishes to destroy the country in which he is living, included its laws.

This guy has as objectives to overwelm democracy in a european country. Would this happen in France, I believe it would qualify as organising an insurrection (attempt to destroy the institutions of the Republic by violence), crime that would involve the maximum prison time (death penalty before 1981): 30 years, no reduction.
