On Tuesday, prosecutors requested a 15-year prison sentence for Fouad Belkacem, who is considered to be the leader of a terrorist organization. The terrorism trial of the small group, Sharia4Belgium opened for its second day on Tuesday at the Antwerp Criminal Court. Fouad Belkacem was not present at trial. “He has his reasons, but it is certainly not due to a lack of respect for the court,” said his lawyer, John Maes.
