Try this code (replace projectKey with the project key you need)

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.permission.ProjectPermissions

def project = ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager().getProjectByCurrentKey("projectKey");
def tmpUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
if (ComponentAccessor.permissionManager.hasPermission(ProjectPermissions.DELETE_OWN_ATTACHMENTS , project, tmpUser)) {
log.error("user has permissions");

Thanks but this work only on jira 6.3 or above and i'm using jira 6.2.7

Show your errors, we will figure it out

i can't use that function in jira 6.2.7 as it's written in the atlasian doc here : 

hasPermission(...) can't take ProjectPermissions.DELETE_OWN_ATTACHMENTS as first param  before the version 6.3 , and about my first code i got this error 

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Expected global permission because the function takes only global permissions


it works now just i used 

boolean userHasPermission = permissionManager.hasPermission(Permissions.ATTACHMENT_DELETE_OWN, currentIssue ,loggedUser);
