It's a dead ball after the goal - the ref is the only one who has any 'rights' to it.
I've been thinking about this handball vs the Henry one, and why I seem to accept them differently - I think it's all because it's defense vs. offense. Henry used an opportunity to gain advantage to score a goal - I can certainly understand the sudden opportunistic action - but I don't really like it - and he gained advantage from the play without a penalty. But Suarez make a conscious decision to use his hands to prevent a goal against his team and paid a penalty - it was basically a sacrifice play - and I don't really mind it at all. Sure, a goal counts the same whether for or against your team - but I find my acceptance of the violation is different depending on which it is.

Since the French government will cover the losses of the vehicles destroyed before their useful life is expired, perhaps this is just the French version of "cash for clunkers".
