Head of Mosque in Montreuil Seeks to Purchase the Buildings

The person responsible for a mosque in Montreuil (Seine-Saint-Denis) requested the tribunal of Bobigny to restrict ownership of the buildings where his prayer halls were built in 1995 so that he can purchase them. The transaction between Mohammed Ta_four and Marie-Louise Duport, the current owner of the buildings, has stalled since 1996 by the pre-emption of the mayor and the ex-mayor who was opposed to Ta_four`s project. The lawyer of the “Association des B_tisseurs Musulmans de France“ requested the tribunal to honor the transaction. Despite these delays, the mayor has said that the promise of the space will be upheld.
