Rabat – This does not sound good for Saad Lamjarred.
Despite his lawyer’s rejection of Laura Prioul’s request for a medical expert’s opinion in summary during his court date on June 4, the Moroccan singer of “Ghazali” will have to face the truth as his alleged victim will receive the medical examination.
Last month, Prioul’s lawyer requested a medical expert in Paris, aiming to establish a link between the rape she allegedly suffered on October 26, 2016 at the Marriott Champs-Élysées hotel and the deterioration of her health since then.
French authorities arrested Lamjarred on October 26, 2016. He was released and put under surveillance on April 13, 2017.
According to Media Part, the Court of Great Instance in Paris (TGI) has decided after all to allow the medical expert to examine Prioul to find out if her right kidney stopped working because of stress following the assault.
Media Part, who received a call from his relatives, reported that the Moroccan artist learned the bad news from his lawyers yesterday. Lamjarred is still spending time with his family in Morocco where he celebrated Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr and recorded a religious song called “Ya Allah.”
Lamjarred is suing Prioul for defamation over her legal request for a medical exam and asking for EUR 15,000 in damages.
For her part, Laura Prioul, who is suing Lamjarred for aggravated rape and aggravated acts of violence, is still receiving a multitude of threats and reprisals from Lamjarred’s fans. The fans are accusing her of lying and criticizing her for filing the complaint against the singer.
Popstar Saad Lamjarred could face 20 years in prison if convicted. However, no date for the hearing has yet been set.
Lamjarred also faces sexual assault and rape charges in the US since 2010, when an Albanian-American woman accused him of rape and violence. He fled the country to avoid prosecution.
