Abdeslam trial: Defence lawyer wants charges thrown outThursday, 08 February 2018 17:14
Sven Mary moved that Article 12 of the Law on the use of languages in legal matters had been violated and asked therefore that the charges against his client be declared inadmissible. He said the first court orders issued for the case were done in French by investigating judge Patrick De Coster, whereas the judge was based at the Dutch-language lower court of Brussels.
This was a procedural flaw that should lead to the case being dismissed, he argued.
