Investigating magistrate hopes to wrap up Operation Chalice in the autumnSaturday, 18 August 2018 14:13
“The investigation has been going on for far too long”, says lawyer Christine Mussche. She is representing several dozen abuse victims, along with her colleague Walter Van Steenbrugge. “We have considered many times asking the Chamber of Accusations to look into how the investigation is being handled.”
Mussche is worried that the investigation won’t end before the year is out, which means the case won’t be handed over for indictments until then either. But the investigating magistrate has said he hopes to wrap up the investigation in the autumn, according to the federal prosecutor’s office spokesperson Wenke Roggen, who also argued the procedure has not be abnormally long. “Eight years is not a long time in such complex cases”, she said.
