Three of the rioters who took place in the demonstrations held in the Schaerbeek neighbourhood of Brussels last month have been assigned to electronic surveillance via ankle bracelets.
Some of the charges include deliberate arson at night on an occupied building, armed rebellion by multiple persons with prior meditation, property damage, and vehicle damage.
- Police deployed in large numbers in Saint-Gilles to control 'Reclaim the night' protest
- Investigation opened into police violence at Brussels protest
The three now assigned to monitoring with the ankle bracelets are said to be adults involved in the fire that was started at the neighborhood police station in Schaerbeek, according to Bruzz. They will be released from prison after five days.
None of the rioters arrested so far are thought to have been involved in the attack of King Philippe’s car, which was pelted with rocks when it happened to pass through the neighborhood while the riots were taking place.
The investigation is still underway.
