The 38-year-old will undergo his release hearing on August 19. He is accused of having sent a letter to the prosecutors responsible for the file concerning the accusations of computer luring which he faces.
According to the indictment, this letter would have led to the opening of an investigation concerning another person. This information was unfounded, hence the charge of public mischief brought against him.
This false information would have been transmitted to the authorities of the 1er to April 6, 2022. A police investigation subsequently led to an arrest warrant being issued which has been executed against him. He has been detained since August 10.
In court on Friday, his lawyer set his release investigation.
