Rabat – Saad Lamjarred is coming back to Morocco to spend Ramadan with his family.
“I will be spending the Ramadan in Morocco inchallah,” announced the singer of Ghazali to his 6.1 million followers on Instagram.
Lamjarred will be pushing his luck if he stays for the entire holy month, as he needs to return to France before June 4, to present himself at the Tribunal of Grande Instance in Paris.
The singer missed his original court date–a civil complaint brought against him by his victim Laura Prioul– on April 9, allegedly because he was “celebrating” his birthday the previous night.
Last month, Prioul’s lawyer requested a medical expert in Paris, aiming to establish a link between the rape she reportedly suffered in October 2016, and the deterioration of her state of health since.
It’s not the first time that the pop star is returning to Morocco since he was released from jail on April 2017.
The 32-year-old sensation was granted the right to travel to the kingdom last March, on a “temporary” visit to present his single “Ghazali.”
Though singer’s electronic monitoring bracelet was removed in October 2017, Lamjarred is still technically prohibited from leaving French territory, pending the end of the investigation and the start of the trial.
However, he was able to obtain a limited authorization to leave the French territory at the discretion of an investigating judge.
French authorities arrested Lamjarred on October 26, 2016. He was released and put under surveillance on April 13, 2017. Lamjarred also faced sexual assault and rape charges in 2010, when an Albanian-American woman accused him of rape and violence in the US.
