France can deport the controversial imam for inciting hatred

France will finally expel the imam Hassan Iquoussen for hate speech. The decision was made by the highest administrative court in the country, the Council of State, this Tuesday afternoon after a judicial journey in which Parisian magistrates they had blocked his expulsion at the beginning of August issued days before by the Gallic Ministry of the Interior. Precisely, the head of Interior of Macron, Gerald Darmanindid not hide his satisfaction reacting to the decision a few minutes after meeting through his Twitter account where he has indicated that this represents “a great victory for the Republic”.

Interior had ordered said expulsion in July for a “particularly virulent anti-Semitic speech” and for some sermons that called for the “submission” of women to men.

Hassan Iquoussen, 58, was born in France but has Moroccan nationality, and had a strong influence reaching tens of thousands of subscribers through his YouTube and Facebook accounts from his home in northern France. His lawyers had initially successfully petitioned the Paris court to block the deportation order, arguing that he would create a “disproportionate damage” to his “private and family life”.
