The Badr Hari saga continues, as now he's making more news in the Netherlands while continuing to be in prison. Hari was initially released from prison to await trial, but found himself back in when he violated the terms of his release by contacting witnesses and going to a restaurant.
Today, news got out via Badr Hari's lawyer in his request for Hari to be released again that Hari has lost 23kg (50.5lbs) so far since his original stint in prison, also saying that he had become very depressed in the process. Hari's lawyer was trying to get him out of prison for the holidays.
The request for parole was rejected, with the court saying that no new arguments were presented and that releasing Hari would be against the interest of society.
The main case against Badr Hari is the assault on Koen Everink on July 8, where Everink was badly beaten and had his ankle stomped on so hard that is was severely damaged. Everink is now able to walk, but doctors say he will never be able to play sports or run again.
In short, there's a reason we took Badri Hari off the LiverKick rankings. He won't be fighting any time in the near future because of his prison stint, with trial upcoming in January. To add to that, he's clearly in no shape to fight, having lost such a significant amount of weight. [source]
