He had just proudly presented his triplet girls, now rapper Bushido (43) is in trouble …
The Potsdam Public Prosecutor has charged Anis Ferchichi, as Bushido’s real name is, with community arson under Section 306 of the Criminal Code. A spokeswoman for the Potsdam public prosecutor’s office confirmed this on Thursday. There are two other suspects. The “Stern” had previously reported.
Bushido is accused of having commissioned two accomplices in December 2013 to start a fire in the roof structure of his house in Kleinmachnow.
According to this, Ferchichi was able to circumvent the provisions of the monument protection during the renovation of the historic villa and get compensation from the insurance company.
If the 43-year-old family man is convicted, he faces a prison sentence of up to ten years, it said. Bushido already has a relevant criminal record.
The court sentenced him to an eleven-month suspended prison sentence for faking a break-in in his ornamental fish shop in 2014 and receiving a high six-figure sum from the insurance company.
The rapper and his wife Anna-Maria Ferchichi last testified as a witness before the Berlin district court in a trial against a Berlin clan chief. Bushido had compared his relationship with Arafat Abou-Chaker to a forced marriage. The public prosecutor’s office accuses the clan chief of insulting, depriving him of liberty, attempting serious blackmail, coercion and dangerous bodily harm.
Anna-Maria and her husband had only shown their triplet girls to the public via Instagram on Wednesday. “Hopefully many years of happiness and health lie ahead of us with you,” wrote Bushido.
