Kucam can prison with an electronic monitoring system, but he will remain detained. He will not be living with his wife, as the judge issued a restraining order.
“He will be staying with his parents,” said Walter Damen, his lawyer, reports VRT NWS. “He feels relieved. Like every person in prison, he is happy to get out of his cell. He will be really happy to see his parents again after eight and a half months. This is the first step. Next step is a full release,” he added.
Kucam’s wife and son are also suspects in the same case. His son was released on parole in March, his wife in September.
