Don alleged to have forcibly sodimised victim, dragged her to the bathroom and urinated on her.

A French judge has placed prominent Islamic studies scholar Tariq Ramadan under criminal investigation on two charges of rape.

The 55-year-old was questioned by police in Paris earlier this week and has now been remanded into custody.

He denies wrongdoing and is suing one of his accusers, a former radical Islamist, for slander.

Mr Ramadan teaches at Oxford University, but took leave of absence after the claims surfaced in October.

An examining magistrate will now compile a case, and determine whether Mr Ramadan will stand trial for rape and assault.

BBC.

The BBC with its customary deference to an Oxford Don, does not mention the distressing substance of the charges.

RT France however does,

Le 2 février, l’islamologue Tariq Ramadan a été déféré au parquet de Paris en vue d’une mise en examen pour viol après confrontation, le 1er, avec une victime présumée qui a évoqué des faits de viol, violence et humiliation insoutenables.

Passage à tabac, sodomie, viol avec un objet, traction par les cheveux… «Christelle» (nom d’emprunt), victime présumée de Tariq Ramadan en 2009, a accepté de faire face à celui qu’elle considère être son bourreau, durant trois heures et demie d’interrogatoire le 1er février.

On the second of February Ramadan faced  charges at the Paris Public Prosecutors, being put into formal investigation, after having confronted his presumed victim, who talked of the horrific details of her violation, violence and humiliation.

Alleging beatings, sodomy, rape with an object, hair pulled, Christelle (the victim’s assumed name) agreed a face to face confrontation, which lasted three hours with the person she considers her executioner during his first interrogation on the first of February.

RT bases its report on a long article that has just appeared in the French edition of Vanity Fair.

The magazine gives a harrowing account by  ‘Christelle’.

Tariq Ramadan : le récit de celle qui a fait basculer l’affaire

It contains this memorable passage,

l l’aurait sodomisée de force, l’aurait traînée par les cheveux jusqu’à la salle de bain et lui aurait uriné dessus.

He (she alleges) forcibly sodomised me  and dragged me by the hair to the bathroom where he pissed on me.

She also asserted that Ramadan had a little scar on his groin that could not have been noticed without being in close contact with him.

The Telegraph, which does summarise these claims, notes,

During three months of investigations since the allegations emerged, police have interviewed dozens of people close to both Ramadan and the two women, and examined email and social media exchanges between them.

In November, Oxford University said Ramadan was taking a leave of absence from his post as professor of contemporary Islamic studies, “by mutual agreement”.

He has also denied allegations of sexual misconduct against teenage girls in the 1980s and 1990s published in the Swiss media, denouncing them as “a campaign of lies launched by my adversaries”.

Lawyers for Ramadan have accused Ms Ayari of slander and suggested the women colluded to try to disgrace him.

As part of his defence, he has presented investigators with Facebook conversations in which a woman identified as Ayari allegedly made explicit advances towards him in 2014, two years after the alleged rape.

The accusations have sparked furious online exchanges between supporters of Ramadan, who commands a following of more than two million fans on Facebook, and his opponents.

“Despite his leave of absence from Oxford, Ramadan continues to head the Islamic Institute for Ethical Training in France.”

And that the other of accusers remains  menaced by Ramadan’s supporters.

“Ms Ayari was placed under police protection in November after receiving death threats.”

There are reports that Ramadan, as a Swiss Citizen, will be denied bail for fear he will abscond.

He is clearly not a man to be trusted, as this effort  last year to make political and religious capital out of the plight of the Rohingya,  passing off African massacres – and Indian killings – as those in Burma, indicates.

Le Monde states that the Muslim professor is no longer welcome in the Qatari kingdom, the sponsors of his Oxford ‘professorship’.

  1. Ramadan supporters are already claiming the identification of the scar (cicatrice) was part of a Zionist conspiracy, starting from the claim that the wound was visible and well known already.
