Tariq Ramadan, the prominent Islamic scholar who is being investigated for rape and sexual assault, has protested his innocence in a new video.
The 10-minute clip, published by French news website The Muslim Post, dates back to mid-November although it has only just come to light now.
"I would like to begin by saying that I am totally innocent of the crimes I am accused of," Mr Ramadan declares in the video.
"With time, we will know who has said the truth, who has lied, and, ultimately, who is innocent," he continued. He also repeated his claim to be the subject of a smear campaign by his enemies.
