Mehdi Nemmouche, the alleged culprit of the Brussels Jewish Museum shooting last May, will appear before the Brussels Council Chamber again, on Friday. Last September, the Council Chamber decided to keep the accused in custody, a decision his lawyers, Mr. Sébastien Courtoy and Mr. Henri Laquay, didn’t appeal.
Mehdi Nemmouche is charged with murder in a terrorist context. He is suspected of having killed several people at the Brussels Jewish Museum last May. The man was arrested in France. He was then extradited to Belgium and placed under arrest at Bruges prison in July. He is suspected of opening fire on the Jewish Museum in Brussels on May 24th, killing four people inside the building.
He was found by chance, in Marseille, a week later, in possession of a Kalashnikov rifle and a revolver. He was wearing a cap similar to that of the killer, caught on tape by video surveillance cameras.
