Rabat – Amine Harit’s hearing was postponed again. According to Le Site Info, the First Instance Tribunal of Marrakech decided to push the Atlas Lions’ audience to allow the insurance company to process the claims of the rights holders of the victim.
The 21-year-old rising star was involved in a road accident that led to the death of a pedestrian in Marrakech. The accident occurred while the player was driving with his 14-year-old brother on Saturday, June 30, shortly after midnight.
The Schalke 04 attacking midfielder was supposed to be presented to a prosecutor in Marrakech, two weeks ago “in a state of freedom and with his passport withdrawn.” The hearing was first postponed to July 11, to “allow for negotiations with the victim’s parents with a view to amicable settlement,” explained a close source to the case to AFP.
However, Al Akhbar reported last week that the Moroccan football player has made a financial agreement with the family of the victim. Harit “had to propose a fairly large amount to the family.”
Last week, the family of the young victim spoke to the media about their son’s death.
The mourning family complained about the way Moroccan authorities handled the accident. Moreover, they claimed that they did not want money.
Harit was granted the right to leave Morocco in a temporary release;he recovered his passport and his driving license, which police had retained, on Tuesday, June 3.
