For Prioul, Lamjarred, who is now facing another rape charge in France, is a threat, given the “danger he represents.”
Saad Lamjarred was arrested Sunday, August 26, and held for 48 hours before being released on surveillance. He is awaiting trial in the rape case of Laura Prioul and was charged with rape in the second case on Tuesday, August 28.
“This is something I can not conceive, it’s something I can not understand, that he can go on vacation like that since there have already been complaints against him and I’m not the first,” Prioul told France radio RTL.
Speaking about Lamjarred, the victim recalled how the singer’s change to a “violent person” occurred suddenly during her encounter with him.
“He is someone who looks nice, but suddenly, the look will change, the expression will change … he will become violent. I understand this girl, I know he can be nice over a period of time,” said Prioul, explaining that she experienced the same feelings the new victim did.
In another statement to French news outlet Le Parisien, Prioul said that she was “extremely shocked” that Lamjarred has the right to roam freely in France’s Saint-Tropez, “not far from the place” where she works.
After Lamjarred’s arrest on Sunday, Prioul shared a post on Facebook, protesting French justice for not being “firm” against the singer.
Prioul opened up about her allegations against Lamjarred on November 12, 2017.
Prioul said that the singer “ruined” her life, claiming that Lamjarred raped and beat her in October 2016 after she “refused him.”
“I wanted to defend myself, and this person hit me again, and again and again.… I couldn’t do anything. He was stronger than me. That person raped me,” she said.
Lamjarred, according to Prioul, acted like a different person after the incident as if nothing had happened, asking her why she was crying after he raped her.
“He asked me why I was crying, if I was injured, and if I needed some ice?”
After the incident, Prioul filed complaints against the infamous singer. Subsequently, police arrested Lamjarred in October 2016, and he spent six months at the Marriott Champs Elysées in Paris pending his trial.
In April 2017, French authorities decided to release Lamjarred on bail under electronic surveillance, and he was allowed to return to Morocco twice.
