Jan Jambon's ideas: members of the public to instigate defamation proceedings against Minister JambonWednesday, 27 April 2016 12:31
"Bearing in mind the unacceptable thoughtlessness which the Minister used as an excuse to utter accusatory cut-and-dried statements and also those of his peer group, which are no less shocking as they seem to ratify his ideas, we now consider that it is both our legal right and moral duty to fight back by taking legal action, as Belgian citizens of the Muslim faith," Mehdi Kassou, one of those initiating the proceedings, stressed.
The claimants invite "all those, whether citizens or associations, who consider that it is necessary to put up a firm front against these statements" to join them in making similar complaints in the matter. Individual complaints in this matter are to be lodged as a form of joint action with the Brussels Public Prosecutor on Friday May 6th from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
