Oualid B., since August 2016 in prison according to the satirical weekly, has been released on April 3, with the cabinet of an investigating judge having renewed his seal in pre-trial detention. He has since been in freedom, but under "very strict judicial control", according to the Ministry of Justice. The case has "a very large impact internally", recognizes a source close to the file. An inspection commissioned by the Minister of Justice Nicole Belloubet "is on the way" to "understand how an action with potentially serious consequences, given the heavy profile of the person concerned, may have occurred," says the chancellery.

In doubt, the presidency of the court in Paris did not want to comment. The magistrate has not yet been punished, according to a source close to the case. Internally, several sources confirmed to Europe 1 that the debate had been heated behind the scenes, from the presidency of the republic to that of the court.
