Drugs and gold bars seized from her home: who is Jamilah Habsaoui, the incarcerated mayor of Avallon ?

Sunday April 7, a large quantity of drugs, more than 7,000 euros in cash and gold bars were found at the home of Jamilah Habsaoui, the mayor of Avallon , in Yonne. The councilor was placed in pre-trial detention on Wednesday April 10.

The affair caused a stir. Early Sunday morning, the police arrived at the family home of Jamilah Hasbaoui.

On site, investigators seize 70 kg of cannabis, nearly a kilo of cocaine, 20 gold bars and 7,000 euros in liquid.

After 72 hours of police custody, Jamilah Habsaoui and five other people were brought before the Auxerre court before being indicted and placed in pre-trial detention. ;nbsp;as part of an investigation into "drug trafficking", indicated in a press release the prosecutor of the Republic in Auxerre, Hughes de Phily.

The prosecutor specifies that a preliminary investigation, launched in October 2023, made it possible to implicate two of Jamilah's brothers Habsaoui as being able to habitually purchase and resell narcotics from their sister's home".

Did she know ?

One of them would have admitted the facts and "completely cleared his sister", indicates the mayor's lawyer in the columns of L’Yonne Républicaine, adding that' "there is not necessarily a connection between the six involved".

Ex-member of the Socialist Party, Jamilah Habsaoui is 45 years old. A pharmacy technician by profession, she was not directly elected to head the municipality but became one in 2021 following the resignation of the former councilor. She is also delegated advisor in charge of rurality in the Burgundy Region.

According to Le Parisien, the house searched is the one purchased by the mayor of Avallon from her father. His two brothers live with him, but not the councilor. One of them has already been convicted of drug trafficking and, according to Jamilah Habsaoui's lawyer, would have completely cleared his sister during her custody.

The investigators' investigations will now have to show whether or not Jamilah Habsaoui was aware of her brothers' trafficking.

"We share the suffering of Jamilah Habsaoui, thrown out to pasture on social networks and in defiance of the very principle of presumption of innocence", indicated the elected officials of the Avallon municipal council in a press release cited by our colleagues.
