Brussels attacks – Police were keeping an eye on Khalid El BakraouiSunday, 04 March 2018 22:50
The paper got access to a police report that describes how El Bakraoui asked friends to gather “as much Kalachnikov ammunition as possible” during the summer of 2015. Investigators bugged his phone, placed him under surveillance and photographed him while he was meeting with a buyer.
His house was searched on the 21st of October 2015, but no weapon was found so he was not arrested. Investigators did find “calls for jihad” and “photos of known terrorists” on his laptop.
Another report reveals an officer from the anti-terrorist division said he “showed signs of radicalisation”. Despite this, nothing was done.
“Suspects perceived as “classic criminals” were occasionally linked to ISIS at that time”, says a source close to the anti-terrorist division. He also confirmed that 120 suspects suspected of sympathising with ISIS were arrested during this period.
