Benzema case: Lawyer speaks out, claims political involvement

Karim Benzema’s lawyer, Hugues Vigier, has spoken to AS about the case involving the former Real Madrid striker. Vigier denies the accusations of Benzema’s alleged links to a terrorist group, stating that they are a result of low politics and electoralism. He expressed concern for Benzema’s children, who are now witnessing their father being accused of terrorism. Vigier believes that these accusations are driven solely by electoralism and will only serve to fuel Islamophobia and the far-right. He asserts that Benzema’s religious practice is not radical at all, and he himself is unaware of the Brothers Muslim organization and its objectives, whether they be religious or political in nature.
