Imam Iquioussen on the run in Belgium?

William JULIÉ answers the legal questions that arose following the overturn of the suspension of the expulsion order against Imam Iquioussen. The S cards do not mean a daily surveillance of the person concerned, who does not lose his freedom to come and go. However, if Imam Iquioussen has committed the crime of voluntary evasion of a deportation order, a European arrest warrant could be issued by the French authorities to obtain his surrender in order to try him for this crime. If he is considered to be in an irregular situation in Belgium, their authorities could hand him over to France or deport him to Morocco.
