Moroccan pop star Saad Lamjarred met with Moroccan King Mohammed VI in Paris after the former insisted to meet with him.
The Moroccan website Goud reported that Lamjarred and his family met the king on May 4 in the evening, adding that the meeting lasted for 20 minutes.
Chouftv, a Moroccan website, said the meeting was held following mediations by the lawyer of the royal palace who followed up on Lamjarred’s case following his arrest in France.
