Jejoen Bontinck remains in cell
After a conversation of half an hour, the Belgian Youth Court decided today to release a seventeen year old Antwerp Syria fighter who last week returned to Belgium. He fought three months actively on the side of Isis, the most violent terrorist movement in Syria, which also sent threatening emails to Belgium.
But fortunately not everyone is immediately released again.
During a closed session this afternoon, the Court decided that the Syrian fighter Jejoen Bontinck stays in prison. Lawyer Kris Luyckx don’t wish to comment on the news.
Jejoen Bontinck was detained after his voluntary return from Syria to Belgium. On the day of his return, he was arrested at his mother’s home.
The Belgian salafists are lucky that they can come back home while the Syrian population is victim of the ongoing fighting in Syria.
