“Antwerp is monitoring 557 people in the fight against radicalism”Thursday, 22 June 2017 15:29
Bart De Wever explained, “There are 189 people who are really dangerous. Of these, 67 people are in Syria, 16 people have returned to Antwerp from there, and 20 wish to leave Syria for Belgium. There are around a further 60 people whose movements we are closely monitoring.”
He went on, “There are also a group of 350 people who are bordering on involvement with the Salafi milieu. Therefore in Antwerp, we are actively monitoring 557 individuals.” From De Wever’s comments, the total figure he states as being monitored can only be approximate.
