Three judges are tasked with the complex case investigation of the charges against Islamic scholar Tariq Ramadan after his indictment on Friday when he was charged with rape.
Ramadan, who while in police custody was confronted by one of the women who he is alleged to have sexually attacked and physically tortured and humiliated, had asked his defense to discuss with the judge the possibility of relieving him from pre-trial detention, which the prosecution had asked for. This judicial decision should take place within four days.
Meanwhile, Ramadan, who lived in recent months between Switzerland and France, will spend the time in a Paris jail.
On Thursday, it was decided that the testimony of Henda Ayari, who has suffered for three months attacks on social networks and is under police protection, would be scrutinized. On October 20, 2017, she had filed a rape complaint against Ramadan.
