Rape-accused Tariq Ramadan faces US charges as ‘Muslim victim comes forward’

Rape-accused Muslim academic Tariq Ramadan could now face charges in the United States after American attorney Rabia Chaudry said she had referred an alleged victim to a federal prosecutor this week.

Ramadan is currently being held in a French prison since February 2 on charges that he raped two women in Paris and Lyon.

Chaudry confirmed to Al Arabiya English that she had referred “a Muslim victim” to the prosecutor, declining to comment on the matter further or explaining exactly what the US victim had accused Ramadan of.
