The lawyer Juan Branco, placed in police custody Tuesday, June 1 in Paris as part of a preliminary investigation for rape, has been released “at the end of the afternoon”, said his lawyer, Yassine Bouzrou, in a statement. This file was opened at the end of April after the accusations of a young woman.
Master Yassine Bouzrou affirms that “this custody was abusive” and that the charges are “unfounded”. According to Juan Branco’s advice, “the complainant’s consent to the sexual relationship” is clear. He assures us that the young woman affirmed “that there was no violence, no threat, no manifestation of his opposition”. Yassine Bouzrou judges these elements “eloquent” and request “the classification without immediate follow-up” of the procedure against his client.
The 20-year-old woman had deposited a handrail at the police station of the 14th arrondissement of Paris on April 29, after meeting Juan Branco following discussions on the Instagram network.
