The Congolese Music Star was handed a two years suspended jail sentence by a court in France in absentia as he was a no show. According to report, what this sentence means is that Koffi Olomide faces an arrest if he commits further offenses.
Koffi Olomide was ordered by the court to pay a fine of 5,000 euros ($5,700; £4,300) in damages to the former dancer. He also ordered to pay the same amount to the court for illegally bringing three women into France.
Olomidé’s lawyer has hailed the ruling as a victory, telling journalists it would result in the withdrawal of the star’s international arrest warrant. It would be recalled that Koffi Olomide was accused of raping a young lady between 2002 and 2006 after it was alleged that he seized her passport.
