Paris attacks victims receive €75m


The French compensation fund has so far paid out more than €75m (£67m) to over 2600 victims and relatives of casualties of the November 2015 Paris terror attacks.

These are mainly provisions, as French law states full compensation must be paid to injured people only once their health has stabilised. The full and definitive evaluation of after-effects is acknowledged after independent medical assessments and that phase can take time for both bodily and psychological injuries.

The Guarantee Fund for Victims of Terrorism and Other Criminal Acts notes that compensation isn’t capped and that each victim is compensated fully, individually, without any ceiling.

On the night of 13 November 2015, nine terrorists launched attacks near the Stade de France in Saint-Denis and at bars, restaurants and a concert hall in Paris. In total, 130 people were killed - 90 of them inside the Bataclan - and more than 400 others were injured.

The compensation fund is financed through a €5.90 levy (£5.2) on French property insurance policies.
