French Court Slaps Moroccan Comedian with 6 Months Suspended Sentence for ‘Marital Violence’

Moroccan media reported last month that the French police had arrested Jawadi over a rape complaint from a young French woman.

Rabat – The court in France’s Grenoble gave Moroccan Comedian Abdelfatah Jawadi a six-months suspended sentence for marital violence on Friday, October 18.

Police in France arrested Jawadi on September 12 when he was visiting his children, who are living with their mother in France.

Franceinfo reported that Jawadi was living with a friend 100 kilometers away from his wife and children.

He appeared at the Grenoble court accused of making murder threats against his wife and “repeated violence.”He  allegedly committed the domestic crimes between May and September 2019.

Moroccan media widely reported the arrest of Jawadi last month, claiming that he had been arrested for raping a young French woman.

Jawadi pleaded guilty to all charges, the news outlet reported.

The comedian will be on probation for two years. The court also warned him not to contact his wife.

The comedian justified his acts, claiming that he was experiencing mental issues due to his “deteriorating social conditions after he left Morocco.”

He said that he “lost everything.”
