Half of all Belgian terrorists have criminal past, study showsTuesday, 11 September 2018 16:13
The Slovak think tank GLOBSEC provides a response to this question. It did a study on 225 terrorists from 11 countries and concluded that there were twice as many Belgians and French nationals with prior convictions than the average number for European countries.
On the other hand, the reason for this disparity has not yet been identified, but the researchers note the importance of friendship ties in the formation of terror networks, which presupposes that former criminals often attract their peers.
The cross-border links between France and Belgium can explain the high rates of ex-criminals from these countries among the jihadists.
