XV of France: Haouas avoids the court

Selected from the list of 37 players unveiled by Fabien Galthié, Mohamed Haouas saw his summons before the criminal court, for acts of burglary, postponed at the request of his lawyer.

Mohamed Haouas can breathe. The right pillar of Montpellier, who is one of the 37 players selected by Fabien Galthié for the preparation camp for the 6 Nations Tournament, could have missed all or part of this meeting. Indeed, for facts of burglary dating from 2014, the French international (6 selections) is summoned before the criminal court on January 29.

A date which, in view of the calendar, falls badly for Mohamed Haouas. Indeed, this summons is placed five days after the start of the gathering of the Blues in Nice and a week before the first exit of the XV of France in the 6 Nations Tournament, scheduled for February 6 in Italy. Faced with this particular situation, the FFR intervened in order to facilitate the postponement of this convocation.

Haouas can thank the FFR

Joined by RMC Sport, Mohamed Haouas’ lawyer, Me Marc Gallix, confirmed that the French Rugby Federation submitted to the court a certificate signed by Serge Simon, vice-president of the FFR, confirming all the details related to the preparation course for the XV of France, in which the pillar of the MHR will participate. An element that convinced the courts to accept a postponement of this summons for several months. ” It is acquired. This is good news for him and his career, declared Me Gallix. This will also allow him to prepare his defense well.

If he will still have to answer for the facts of robbery on tobacco shops, for which he was imprisoned for four days in 2014, Mohamed Haouas does not have to worry about his medium-term future within the XV of France.
