In the columns of Le Parisien, the family accused of squatting the house in Essonne wanted to give their version of the facts. A version that contradicts that of the couple formed by Laurent and Elodie.
It was a case that caused a stir. Elodie and Laurent had testified in the columns of Parisian on a very sensitive subject: their squatted house. Guest on the set of Do not touch My TV, the couple had explained that they had bought a villa in Essonne but that this residence was already occupied by a family. The latter insisted on giving her version of the facts, once again, in the columns of the Parisian. Indeed, Saber B. is the father who would have squatted the said house. This Monday, July 11, 2022, “It’s been a month since this 41-year-old worker, his wife and five children aged 4 to 16, have been housed from hotel to hotel by the Essonne prefecture, via 115”, explain our colleagues.
Indeed, on June 9, an eviction order ordered his family to leave the premises. “My client went home with keys, through the front door: he is not a squatter and never has been,” said his lawyer. “In reality, Saber B. was scammed by Issam A., now on the run in Tunisia. According to our information, the father of the family filed a complaint for fraud with the gendarmes of Palaiseau on May 20, “ can we read in the article. The Parisian then redid the history of the transactions of this house which belonged in the past to a retiree. When he died, it was his niece who inherited but had to deal with many squatters. Meanwhile, Saber B. meets a certain Issam A., who introduces himself to him as the owner of the house. “He signed a contract by mutual agreement, as can be done in Tunisia”poursuit Me Maktouf.
Issam A. then asks him for €120,000. Saber B. will transfer €43,000 and the rest will be paid in cash : “It’s my big mistake”he acknowledges. Indeed, this transaction is illegal in France. Regarding the squat, Saber B. says: “They came to offer me 2,000 euros to leave, then 5,000, then 10,000”. But on Laurent’s side, this version of the facts does not hold : “It’s wrong, I would never have given him a penny. It was he who demanded 10,000 euros, then 5,000, then 2,000 the night I went on TV (in the program Touche pas à mon post). It’s hidden racketeering”
