fugitive imam now under European arrest warrant


Imam Hassan Iquioussen is now targeted by a European arrest warrant, report BFM TV et franceinfo this Thursday evening. The Moroccan preacher, erected by the Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin as a symbol of the fight against “Islamist separatists”, has been on the run since Tuesday and the validation of his expulsion by the Council of State.

Two home visits carried out by the authorities in Lourches, a town near Valenciennes (North) where he resides, proved unsuccessful. Untraceable in France, the imam could therefore have fled to neighboring Belgium. On Wednesday evening, Gérald Darmanin said he would give “information” about the preacher to his Belgian counterpart so that he “cannot return to France”.

Undesirable in Morocco

On August 1, Morocco had issued a “consular pass” to allow his expulsion by France. But that pass was suspended on Wednesday.

Gérald Darmanin announced on July 28 the expulsion of the preacher, who, according to him, has been on file S (for state security) by the DGSI for 18 months.
