Suites of Yahia Gouasmi” case against Charlie Hebdo


Suites of Yahia Gouasmi” case against Charlie Hebdo

On April 14th 2015, Mr. Yahia Gouasmi quoted Mr. Laurent Sourisseau, the director of Charlie Hebdo newspaper, before the 17th Criminal Chamber of the Tribunal de Grande Instance of Paris, to a count of racially motivated public insults.

The outcome of this case took place in the beginning of November which addressed the admissibility of the quote.

Indeed, the prosecution believes that “if only the family tree written by the civil party itself is brought forth as Mr. Gouasmi’s evidence of being the prophet’s offspring, it can’t be regarded as sufficient evidence, and thus it will not allow the court to declare it as admissible to act upon the evidence”. Therefore, new evidence has been provided including:

The certifications of authenticity of the parentage of  Mr. Gouasmi established by “the global audit committee and the International Institute of the order of the descendants of the Prophet Muhammad,” DAR EL Alamiya, who have their representatives throughout the Muslim world (Turkey, Syria, Morocco, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia …)The family tree certificates of investigations establishing parentage of Mr. Gouasmi certified by the senior Alawite Chorfas, recognized by the Ministry within the Kingdom of Morocco.

The conclusions of the presiding judge on the admissibility of this relationship will be held on December 15th, 2015.

The support committee will continue to inform all supporters and all those who support Mr. Gouasmi in his efforts, the results of this case before the next meeting which has been set on December 15th, 2015.We hope that the law will be guaranteed for all here in France.The court, taking into account only the scope of the law, can only note the admissibility of this relationship and condemn Charlie Hebdo for the racially motivated insults.
