Omar Bin Laden, one of the sons of Osama Bin Laden, has been, according to our information, indicted for advocating terrorism. In question, a tweet published on May 2, the anniversary of the death of the founder of Al Qaeda.

Yesterday, Thursday July 6, 2023, an important device was deployed in Domfront (Normandy) where Omar Bin Laden has been living since 2021. Around 7:30 a.m., the security forces intervened in two places in the city, at his home and in the medieval town where the man who became an artist-painter exhibits.

Contacted, the public prosecutor of Argentan does not wish “neither to deny, nor to confirm. There are ongoing legal proceedings, and the secrecy of the investigation.”

A source close to the investigation, however, confirms to the Free Publisher the information: “Omar Bin Laden was indicted for advocating terrorism and released at the end of the procedure.”

On May 2, his father’s birthday, a Twitter account named @OmarBinLadin1, believed to belong to Omar Bin Laden, posted a message praising Osama’s memory.

Many voices in the Arab world were outraged, according to the ArabNews site and asked the platform to suspend the profile. Today, the account is suspended.

Omar Bin Laden settled in Normandy in 2021. He started painting during confinement and regularly exhibits his paintings, sold between 800 and 2000€.

Met this morning, Omar Bin Laden insists that it is “false information”.

The investigation is continuing and will have to determine in particular whether Omar bin Laden is indeed at the origin of this Twitter profile and the author of this tweet.
