PARIS– The Paris district attorney’s office is investigating allegations of rape and sexual assault versus popular Swiss Islamic scholar Tariq Ramadan, who denies any wrongdoing.

Le Monde and Le Parisien newspapers reported Saturday that a lady filed a grievance this week against Ramadan for a supposed rape in 2009. Recently, a woman stated she was attacked by Ramadan in 2012.

Paris prosecutors say they have actually opened a rape and sexual attack investigation against Ramadan following the first problem. Ramadan’s legal representative, Yassine Bouzrou, has actually denied the allegations and says his customer is demanding “false allegations.”

Ramadan teaches Islamic Studies at Oxford University and has written various books on Islam and the combination of Muslims in Europe.
