France’s highest administrative court has approved the deportation to Morocco of a French-born imam accused of hate speech.

Judges in Paris had previously blocked the deportation of Hassan Iquioussen who holds Moroccan citizenship.

His expulsion had been ordered in July by the interior ministry over what it called his “especially virulent and anti-Semitic speech,” as well as sermons calling for women to “submit” to men.

His lawyer insisted that although he had made “retrograde statements” he did not constitute a threat to public order.

But Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin described Tuesday’s decision as “a great victory for the republic.”
