The Belgian authorities have asked France for a temporary release of the alleged terrorist attack on the terrorist attacks of 13 November 2015, Salah Abdeslam has to be prosecuted in Brussels in December in another case – the local press reported on Friday.
The Belgian federal prosecution confirmed the news of the Le Soir newspaper on the extradition request, pointing out that “no details will be made available for any future transfer of Abdeslam currently in custody in France”.
According to sources calling for anonymity, the French authorities decide on the matter within a few days.
Police in March last year, before the Brussels bombings, searched a search of a flat in the Forest district of the Belgian capital, which, as later revealed, served as a hideout for Abdeslam, a fugitive from the terrorist attacks in Paris.
During the operation, they opened fire for police officers who shot one of three men in the apartment; two, including Abdeslam, but managed to escape through the rooftops. Several police officers were wounded in the shooting. The fugitives were captured a few days later.
The case was initiated against Abdeslam and his companion, Soufien Ayari, against attempted murder and illicit arms possession in Belgium.
The trial was held on December 18-22. in Brussels.
In the French capital, on November 13, 2015, there were seizures in 130 locations in which 130 people were killed. Many of the perpetrators of the terrorist attacks in Paris have lived in Brussels earlier.
