The Nemmouche trial


The trial of Mehdi Nemmouche, charged with the massacre at the Jewish Museum in Brussels (24 May 2014) has just begun in Belgium.

Nemmouche was arrested in Nice (France) with a bag containing a beret and weapons. This resulted in him being identified as the assassin. However from day 1, he has protested his innocence. Detained for four years, he finally has the opportunity to present his defence.

Confirming our hypothesis [1], he declared to the court that he found the bag and that he was not involved in the massacre that took place at the Jewish Museum and which resulted in four deaths.

Daesh has never claimed responsibility for this attack.

The AG has asked for four former hostages of Daesh to come forward to testify that Nemmouche was indeed their jailer; this is something that his lawyers have denied on the grounds that it is a different matter that does not form part of the present inquiry. They have on the other hand requested to hear an official of Mossad or from the Israeli embassy with regards to the identity of the couple assassinated, Emanuel et Miriam Riva. Nemmouche’s lawyers, as do we, think that they are two Mossad agents on mission. The court has refused them this request.

The oral arguments will begin on 10 January 2019.
