The pillar of the XV of France Mohamed Haouas spent his second night in custody in Montpellier after being arrested Friday afternoon by the CRS. He is suspected of "domestic violence". This Sunday, the MHR player was placed in pre-trial detention, at least until Tuesday, when he will appear before the judge in immediate appearance at 13:30 p.m.
The international (16 caps) was first presented to the Public Prosecutor at the Palais de Justice in Montpellier, accompanied by his lawyer, Maître Gallix. He was then summoned by the liberty and detention judge, who then ordered his pre-trial detention.
'A reaction of sadness'
"The judge insisted that Mohamed Haouas had already been tried a fortnight ago and that Friday's facts are unequivocal. It is a reaction of sadness for him and for his wife who will come to court Tuesday to testify hoping that it goes well, especially for their two children. It is a whole family that will be destroyed if he is convicted, "responded the lawyer of the international in the columns of L'Equipe.
