Karim Benzema close to the Muslim Brotherhood? The footballer denies

It’s a phrase that hasn’t gone unnoticed. Monday October 16, 2023, while he was on the set of the show Pro Hour by Pascal Praud on CNews, the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, simply accused Karim Benzema of being “linked to the Muslim Brotherhood”. While he was questioned about the Islamist organization, the tenant of Beauvau precisely declared that “for several weeks, (he is) particularly interested… Mr. Benzema is in connection, as we all know, notorious with the Muslim Brotherhood “. And added: “We are attacking a hydra that is the Muslim Brotherhood because they give an atmosphere of jihadism, as Gilles Kepel said.”

An accusation which did not fail to reach the ears of the main interested party, who reacted through his lawyer, Me Hugues Vigier, this Wednesday, October 18, firmly refuting the words of Gérald Darmanin, as relayed The Parisian. Speaking to the capital’s daily newspaper, the footballer’s advisor initially declared that “Karim Benzema has never had the slightest relationship with this organization.” And to point out: “(The footballer) also chose to live in Arabia which has declared the said terrorist organization, which France has never done.”

In any case, Karim Benzema has indicated that he is now considering filing a complaint against Gérald Darmanin. “We are considering proceedings against this minister in application, for example, of the law on the manipulation of information dear to our government… and defamation, or even public insult,” said Mr. Hugues Vigier at Parisianjudging, in passing, “it is not acceptable for those who govern to believe they are authorized to do anything out of pure opportunism.”
