Eighteen years in prison. This is the sentence that was requested this Thursday against MHD, tried for murder at the assizes. The rapper denied Wednesday at the bar to have participated in the murder in Paris in 2018 of a young man, lynched as part of a settling of scores between gangs of rival cities, leaving however some gray areas.
The artist, now 29 years old, whose real name is Mohamed Sylla, is the last of the eight accused present at the hearing (a ninth man is on the run and therefore absent) to be questioned on the night of July 5 to 6, 2018, during which Loïc K. was hit by a Mercedes, beaten and stabbed by a dozen people, before dying.
At the heart of the case, a settling of accounts between young people of the city of Chaufourniers, nicknamed the red city, and the neighboring one of the Grange aux belles in the tenth and nineteenth arrondissements.
