New information can shed light on Brabant killings
Thursday, 02 November 2017
A new lead concerning the killings in Brabant was disclosed two weeks ago and can solve the investigation, announced yesterday Jef Vermassen, lawyer of one of the victims, in an interview on TV news VTM NIEUWS. He spoke of “a decisive statement” without specifying its content.
According to the lawyer, the statement “reveals who is behind (the killings) and can explain how the crimes could take place without the police intervening.” He thinks that the police now know enough to solve the Brabant killings.
Jef Vermassen himself has in recent weeks received dozens of statements from “witnesses who have never been taken seriously” but who wish to testify. “As far as we are concerned, we have done our job,” he added. “The investigators must now continue their.”
The prosecutor in Liège, Christian de Valkeneer, was not available yesterday (1 November) to react to this information.
