    The only member of the jihadist commando team still alive, involved in the November 13th, 2015, jihadist attacks in Paris, Salah Abdeslam, was summoned before an anti-terrorist judge today (Tuesday). The Belga press agency has learned from a judicial source that he “refused to answer questions.”

    The source also confirmed that he did not seek assistance from a lawyer.

    Abdeslam, aged 27, was taken out of his cell in Fleury-Mérogis in the early hours of this morning.

    Since being transferred from Belgium to France on April 27th, the key suspect in the Paris and Saint-Denis attacks, which caused 130 deaths, has so far said nothing.

    In mid-October, his lawyers refused to act for him anymore, having the “genuine conviction that he will never tell his side of the story, despite having opportunities to do so.”
