Slander, slander, there will always be something left… in this case, a complaint for defamation filed against France’s first cop, Gérald Darmanin!
By wanting too much to demonize Karim Benzema for basely political purposes, the ambitious Minister of the Interior, who must be chomping at the bit since careerist Gabriel Attal stole Matignon’s morocco from him, has seriously discredited himself.
Thousands of kilometers from the sinister French Tartufferie, from the Saudi kingdom where he plays for the Al-Ittihad club, the football star has just launched the legal counter-attack with the Court of Justice of the Republic ( CJR), claiming to be the victim of a lamentable “political instrumentalization”.
Indeed, on October 16, on CNews, Karim Benzema was accused by Gérald Darmanin, Sarkozy’s spiritual son, of being in “notorious link with the Muslim Brotherhood”. A fallacious allegation, fired like a poisoned arrow, which the former Real Madrid star striker has always categorically refuted, emphasizing how much it damages his honor and his reputation.
Delivered to popular vindictiveness by an Interior Minister whose teeth scratch the floor, the French football virtuoso was especially reproached for his message full of compassion addressed, on October 15, to the martyred population of Gaza: “all our prayers for the inhabitants of Gaza who are once again victims of these unjust bombings which spare no women or children”.
“ We throw people out like this, to general opprobrium, just to create a false communication stunt”his lawyer, Me Hugues Vigier, is indignant, before strongly deploring: “ With family consequences for those close to him too which are considerable.”
And to drive the point home: “ We are sowing division in France, we have a lot of people who don’t understand this kind of talk, some who exclude Karim Benzema and some who feel excluded through what we say about him. This is the complete opposite of what a man who calls himself a politician should work towards. “.
