After serving his sentence for advocating terrorism, handed down in 2017, Khader Cikkili is prohibited from leaving Montpellier for the duration of the Olympic Games, by order of the Ministry of the Interior. On June 3, the gendarmerie checked him while he was fishing in Carnon. The prosecutor had requested two years in prison against him. The court finally sentenced him to six months.

Thursday, June 19, the Montpellier criminal court handed down a six-month prison sentence with continued detention against Khader Cikkili, for having moved outside the perimeter which had been allocated to him. assigned by the Ministry of the Interior for the duration of the Olympic Games.

Convicted in 2017

He was accused of having published or shared Daesh propaganda videos on social networks for several months. French intelligence had also noted a round trip between Montpellier and Molenbeek, then a breeding ground for Islamist terrorism in Belgium, during the weekend of the Paris attacks in 2015.

Almost ten years after these events, Khader Cikkili is therefore subject to an Individual Measure of Administrative Control and Surveillance (Micas) for 91 days, i.e. until the end of the Olympic Games from Paris. A provision that he violated on June 3. That day, the gendarmerie checked him while he was fishing with friends on the Carnon pier.

Socially and professionally integrated

During the hearing on June 5, the prosecutor requested two years in prison for Khader Cikkiki. His lawyers, Marc Gallix and Garance Tursan, had contested the conditions of the identity check and the measure taken by the Ministry of the Interior. Two grounds of nullity rejected by the court.
