The young man was arrested this Friday, April 14. At the end of March, he had filed a complaint after having denounced a sexual assault and racist remarks made by members of the Brav-M.
His name is Souleymane A. The man who had denounced the racist and violent attitude of members of the Brav-M in March, was arrested on Friday April 14 during a Parisian demonstration.
The young man was arrested rue du Chevalier-de-Saint-George, in the 8th arrondissement of Paris according to information from BFM. The young man was next to two individuals who were about to set fire to a trash can, when he was arrested. They were all taken into custody for destruction of property by fire.
Contacted by BFM, his lawyer, Arié Alimi, assures that his client disputes the facts. According to him, a video proves that he did not participate in the charges against him.
