Moroccan World Cup football has reached a settlement with the victim killed in a car accident he was involved in last weekend in Marrakech, says Al Akhbar quoted by Le 360.

Harit «offered the family a fairly significant amount of money», says the same source. «Negotiations were not easy and Harit’s lawyer managed to bring the two parties together».

The same source quotes sports director Christian Heidel who reports that Harit had to «answer two or three questions at the police station», before being handed down his passport.

The Schalke midfielder can leave the country whenever he wants and he no longer needs to accompany his lawyer for court hearings.

It is possible for Harit to join his German club’s training camp in Mittersill from July the 29th to August the 6th, says German media Stern.

For the record, the 21-year-old footballer was behind the wheel when his car hit a pedestrian and killed him, Saturday 30th of June, in Marrakech. An investigation was initiated by the Marrakech police to determine the circumstance surrounding the accident.
