Karim Benzema files a complaint against Gérald Darmanin, who accused him of being linked to the Muslim Brotherhood

From words to actions. According to information from RTL that we are able to confirm, Karim Benzema filed a complaint against Gérald Darmanin for defamation. Last October, the Minister of the Interior repeatedly targeted the former Blues striker, accusing him in particular of being “in notorious links with the Muslim Brotherhood”, an Islamist organization.

At the time, Karim Benzema’s lawyer Hugues Vigier had already told us about the possibility of taking the case to court. “This is false!” Karim Benzema has never had the slightest relationship with this organization, explained the advice of the man who joined the Saudi club Al-Ittihad in June. He also chose to live in Arabia which declared the said terrorist organization, which France has never done. »

According to RTL, Mr. Vigier therefore filed this Tuesday, January 16, with the Court of Justice of the Republic (CJR) a very detailed complaint in which Benzema once again refutes any link with the Muslim Brotherhood. Still according to the famous radio, Benzema says he is “a victim of political exploitation”. “We throw people out like that, to general opprobrium, just to create a false communication stunt. […] With family consequences for those close to him as well which are considerable. We are sowing division in France, we have a lot of people who don’t understand this kind of talk. »

It was after publishing a post on inside. “One might wonder what a footballer is doing tweeting a political opinion and that, when he does it, he does it selectively. I personally think that it hides something and not to see it is to be naive,” Gérald Darmanin explained a few days later.
