Lies Hebbadj Placed Under Police Watch in France

News Agencies – September 20, 2010

Lies Hebbadj, the grocer from Nantes who came under fire after his wife was fined for wearing a niqab while driving in April, was placed under police watch for the third time in four months because of an “abuse of confidence.” There was some question about how he paid his legal council. The Minister of the Interior, Brice Hortefeux, has suggested that Hebbadj may lose his French citizenship if he is found guilty of fraud. Hebbadj has claimed he is not a polygamist but that the mothers of his children are his mistresses.
