A Belgian court has sentenced, Friday, five young people, involved in the riots that took place November 2017 in Brussels after Morocco was qualified to the Russia 2018 World Cup, to forced labor.

Moroccan rapper Benlabel, who was one of these young people, was finally acquitted. He had written on his Facebook account the day before the game : «Tomorrow we will burn everything». He argued that it was a metaphor he used referring to the match and Moroccan team, said La libre.

A few hours after announcing his sentence, the rapper released a new song entitled «acquitté» (acquitted).

For the record, riots on the 11th of November 2017 took place the day Morocco defeated the Ivorian team, winning a ticket to the World Cup after 20 years of absence.
