New elements in the Iquioussen case.
While the administrative justice on Friday suspended the expulsion of the imam to Morocco, considering that it would cause a "disproportionate attack" on his "private and family life", the JDD reveals that the imam had been on file S for about eighteen months and had been sentenced for improper ritual slaughter.
Information confirmed to the Parisian by a source close to the file.
Still according to the Sunday newspaper, on the occasion of Hassan Iquioussen's request for naturalization in 1995, the internal security services had already alerted to his case, mentioning that the imam was "very rigorous in the application of the Koran". and was "notorious for his Muslim proselytism".
These services also recalled that Iquioussen was "one of the fundamentalists who encouraged young students of North African origin to refuse to remove the Islamic headscarf" at Faidherbe high school in Lille, in October 1994.

A decision this summer from the Council of State
Before the suspension of the decision, which he appealed, the Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin announced last week the next expulsion of this preacher born in France but of Moroccan nationality, accused by the French authorities of having held anti-Semitic, homophobic and “anti-women” remarks during sermons or conferences, some of which were made almost 20 years ago.
The Council of State should give its verdict before the end of the summer concerning the appeal of the Minister of the Interior.
In 2004, he notably declared to the faithful that “only the Koran is a holy book”.
"French laws would not change anything, laws that are instituted by a government manipulated by the Jews," he added.
He had also participated in a conference with Holocaust denier Alain Soral in the early 2010s, indicates the JDD.
