Casablanca — Cheb Khaled attributes Lamjarred’s alleged crime to a “mistake of youth” in an interview with ET Bilarabiya.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight’s Arabic division, “ET Bilarabiya,” the Algerian-Moroccan singer-songwriter Cheb Khaled said the Lamjarred case was a “mistake of youth.”
In the clip below, Cheb Khaled refutes the idea of an Algerian set up as a reason behind Lamjarred’s arrest last October on charges of “aggravated sexual assault.”
“I saw Saad Lamjarred. For a young person to do this…God knows. This is a mistake of youth,” Cheb Khaled tells ET.
“He did this himself. He made the mistake in America, then ran away. He made the mistake again…and people said ‘it’s okay.’ And this time he did it again…it’s bad. He wasted his soul,” the singer continues.
At this time, Lamjarred’s attorney has confirmed that Saad is still in detention at the Fleury-Mérogis prison in Paris, pending further ruling.
