MHD free : imprisoned for voluntary manslaughter, the artist released it under the control

Incarcerated since January, 2019, for “voluntary homicide” after a fight mortal in Paris, MHD has just been released. As reported by AFP, on Thursday, July 16, 2020, the French artist of 25 years has just been released under judicial control.

A source close to the dossier told AFP that the warrant of committal of the musician was to expire Thursday, and his lawyer Me Élise Arfi has confirmed to AFP that it had been released in the middle of the day. It could, however, be back in custody soon, if the Paris court of appeal annulled the July 23, for an order of non-extension of his detention on remand.

Videos of its output to the la Santé prison (Paris), shot by his relatives, were leaked on social networks. The producer DSK on the Beat – who has worked with him for his first album – has unveiled a short video of its release on Snapchat before you remove it.

Reminder of the facts. In the night of July 5, 2018, Loïc. K (23 years old) had been hit by a car, beaten, and wounded with a knife in the 10th arrondissement of Paris. It was in reality probably a settlement of accounts between groups in the 10th and 19th arrondissements.

A dozen people would be involved in this “voluntary homicide”. The scene was filmed by a witness from his window. The AFP said that at least three witnesses formally identified MHD. The artist disagrees with the facts since his arrest.

During his pre-trial detention at the prison of Health, MHD has contracted the coronavirus.
