Medical report shows Tariq Ramadan’s health compatible with his continued detention
Muslim academic and rape-accused Tariq Ramadan will remain in custody following the emergence of new details related to the charges against him, according to Agence France-Presse.
A medical report ordered by the court on Monday to examine his appeal against his detention found that Ramadan's state of health was compatible with his continued detention.
Ramadan has been indicted with rape on February 2 and has since been imprisoned at the Fleury-Mérogis prison, south of Paris.
His lawyers have claimed that Ramadan was suffering from multiple sclerosis and had requested his release under bail.
