Administrative justice suspends the expulsion of controversial imam Hassan Iquioussen – RT in French

In a decision rendered on August 5, the administrative justice suspended the expulsion of the controversial imam Hassan Iquioussen, accused by the French authorities of having made, in particular, anti-Semitic and homophobic remarks. Darmanin will appeal.

The administrative court of Paris suspended on August 5 the expulsion of the controversial imam from the North Hassan Iquioussen to Morocco, which had been ordered by the Ministry of the Interior, considering that it would cause a “disproportionate attack” on his “private and family life”.

The Minister of the Interior had announced the previous week the forthcoming expulsion of this preacher born in France but of Moroccan nationality, accused by the French authorities of having made anti-Semitic, homophobic and “anti-women” remarks during sermons or conferences, held almost 20 years ago for some.

Gérald Darmanin said in the process to appeal the administrative decision before the Council of State.

He thus let it be known in a press release that he was “decided to fight against those who hold and disseminate remarks of an anti-Semitic nature and contrary to equality between men and women”.
