Amel Bent’s husband jailed for three years

Patrick Antonelli, a former driving school manager and comrade of singer Amel Bent, was sentenced in June 2020 to four years in prison by the Nanterre Criminal Court, two years suspended, and fined 100,000 euros. Rabia Benrais, a former Hauts-de-Seine official who did not appeal the decision, was sentenced to three years in prison, two of which were suspended and fined 40,000 euros.

On Thursday, Patrick Antonelli was convicted of setting up a driver’s license smuggling from October 2013 to January 2015 and sentenced to three years in prison, two of which were suspended: the investigation renewed the issue of 258 fraud permits, some of which Celebrities benefited. The names of journalist Ali Pado and footballers Jeremy Menez and Levine Kurzawa brought the issue to the forefront of the media scene.

400,000 euro fraud

Patrick Antonelli, banned from business and industry, gave fraudulent files of his driving school customers to Rabia Benreis, and he made changes to the National Driving License file and opened the rights to the pink paper. Under the scheme, a driver ‘s license typically costs ,000 8,000 and the Nanterre attorney’s office calculates a “total of ,000 400,000”, the “minimum” fraud.

In the first case, the defendants agreed to the transport, but the test failed to determine the exact number of fraud permits issued, the manner in which the system was started, or the respective pay. Mr. Mr Thomas Lemory, one of Antonelli’s attorneys, did not want to comment on the outcome of the trial. In addition, the Versailles Court of Appeals in April 2014 acquitted a former state official who was suspected of perpetuating the fraudulent system after Ms. Benreis left the state.
