Death threats against Louis Michel taken seriously by State SecurityFriday, 04 January 2019 13:44
The threats began on 10 December last in Oslo, during a ceremony at which the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Congolese doctor Denis Mukwege. After the award, about 10 members of the opposition Union for Democracy and Social Progress, UDPS, of the Democratic Republic of Congo slammed the Belgian politician.
During the month of December, Louis Michel received letters containing explicit death threats at his home in Jodoigne. He lodged a complaint and the matter has been taken very seriously by State Security, which offered him close protection. As he himself confirmed, he did not accept it, but has been under discreet surveillance since then.
