Nice-Marseille: a Nice supporter banned from stadium before his judgment on September 22

The Nice supporter, who kicked OM midfielder Dimitri Payet during the incidents that interrupted the Nice-Marseille match on Sunday, will finally be judged on September 22.

He was to appear immediately on Wednesday at the Nice court after 48 hours in police custody but he asked for a delay to prepare his defense.

In the meantime, he was placed under judicial supervision with a ban on appearing in a stadium and an obligation to check in once a week at the police station. “In Nice and everywhere else” specified the president of the court, Marion Menot.

The representative of the prosecution, Leopold Mendes, had requested his placement in pre-trial detention, criticizing “serious acts of rather pathetic hooliganism”.

And he noted the young man’s only criminal record, for acts of contempt and rebellion dating back to September 2019 after an altercation with gendarmes at the entrance of a stadium in Montpellier. He had been fined 450 euros.

“I feel ashamed”

“I regret bitterly, I feel ashamed, it has been three days since I slept and I think I will regret all my life, to have dirtied the name of my parents, of my little family”, declared the young temporary worker, under the eyes of his parents, faces closed, his mother in tears.

“He will never go to a stadium again, he is traumatized (…) An hour after the match, his name, that of his partner, of his parents were circulating on social networks (…) He became the ‘public enemy number one,’ detailed his lawyer Benjamin Taieb.

He also explained that his client had “at no time thrown bottles” and that the medical certificate for a two-day ITT produced by Marseille leader Dimitri Payet, a civil party with his club, was unrelated to the alleged facts. .

Supporter of OGC Nice since his childhood, only son with family ties described as stable, this young interim order picker who “does not have the profile of a delinquent” according to his lawyer, had been subscribed for 5 years to the Populaire sud, an association of supporters.
