sole custody that Rokia Traoré challenged to "protect" her daughter. The singer has filed a complaint for "touching" against her ex-boyfriend in Belgium, in France and in Mali. "I never prevented my ex-boyfriend to see or have her daughter. He has filed a complaint against me that when I talked to him about touching on our child", she explains. But the belgian justice has closed the case and issued a european arrest warrant in spite of a letter of assignment signed by the malian government and of his diplomatic passport. The diva was arrested march 10, 2020 at Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle airport while she was in Belgium to appear freely before the court of appeal of Brussels.
Imprisoned in the prison of Fleury-Mérogis in full-blown epidemic world, Rokia Traoré has been released under judicial control in view of his surrender to the belgian authorities and has decided, without permission, to return to his country home where lives his daughter. She believes that the whole of the judicial proceedings until his arrest in France "is a huge injustice" and that the justice of the belgian act of racism and misogyny.

The singer denounces, above all, a legal decision taken by a country where neither his daughter, nor father, and neither she does live. "I don't think that the belgian courts would have behaved as well with an Italian living in Italy alongside his children." For Rokia Traoré, his return to Mali has nothing to do with a leak, for the simple reason that she did not hide. "A leak is assumed to leave a place to go and hide elsewhere. I just could not bear the idea of waiting to be extradited in Belgium, withholding thousands of miles from home, my kids only 5 and 14 years, in a period of full containment in a context of a pandemic, international with a school system upset justifies the singer. I suffered and déprimais."
