Mohamed Haouas (28) and the Montpellier club would have done well without this new legal case. After his conviction for acts of burglary dating back to 2014, the right pillar of Montpellier had been sentenced to 18 months suspended sentence last February.
According to our information, Mohamed Haouas will again have to go through the “justice” case. Information confirmed by his lawyer Me Marc Gallix. The pillar of the France team (15 selections) is expected on Friday January 13, 2023 in the morning at the Montpellier Criminal Court. He will be tried there for acts of intentional violence in a meeting with a weapon.
The facts of which he is accused still date from 2014, before he began his career as a professional rugby player (he played his first Top 14 match with the MHR in August 2017). He had been involved in a fight between several individuals on New Year’s Eve on December 31, 2014. Mohamed Haouas then injured a person with an iron bar.
