Jean-Luc Lahaye banned from concert

Singer Jean-Luc Lahaye, indicted for rape and sexual assault of two minors, was banned by the investigating judge in charge of investigations from performing in concert, sources familiar with the matter said on Saturday, confirming information from BFM TV.

In an order of October 4, the examining magistrate modified the conditions of the judicial review of the singer, released in May after more than six months of provisional, in order to prohibit him from performing in concert, according to these sources. The star of the 80s had planned a performance on December 23 in Paris.

An appeal will be considered

According to the same sources close to the case, he appealed the magistrate’s decision. His appeal must now be examined by the investigating chamber of the Paris Court of Appeal. His lawyers declined to comment.

Aged 69, the interpreter of “Papa singer” was indicted in November 2021 for violence and sexual assault of minors over the age of 15 after the denunciations of two young women, born in 1998 and 2000. The alleged facts , which he disputes, will perform in 2013.

At the beginning of October, one of the suspects had told RMC that the attacks she had suffered had happened “largely in the dressing rooms, behind the scenes of the concerts”.

The variety singer has previous convictions for offenses against minors in 2007 and 2015.
