Belgium paid 78 000 euro to convicted terroristFriday, 13 May 2016 10:32
The United States requested in 2008 the extradition of Nizar Trabelsi, who was also suspected of planning an attack against the US embassy in Paris. He was extradited to the US in 2013. The European Court of Human Rights criticized Belgium for extraditing him to a country where sentence reduction is not possible.
Belgium was ordered to pay Trabelsi 90,000 euros in damages. After deduction for court costs and fines which had not been paid by him, he was awarded about 78 000 euro. The money was not sent to the United States but paid to his family in Belgium.
