The mayor of Molenbeek, Françoise Schepmans, will ask the communal college on Friday to complain against the British journalist Katie Hopkins who broadcast her documentary “the jihadi capital” on the Fox News channel last Friday.
The complaint will be for slander and even perhaps libel – which Hopkins has been sued for a few times in the past
According to the mayor, Hopkins stigmatizes the commune by presenting it as the “European Capital of jihad”. She also interviewed the mayor and blamed her for not doing anything to prevent the Paris terror attacks in 2015 as the culprits came from her municipality.
Hopkins also tweeted about a fire in a warehouse in Koekelberg, Molenbeek on Tuesday and linked the possible causation of it to Ramadam.
Molenbeek. What on earth would cause an explosion like that in the Jihadi Capital of Europe at the start of Ramadan? *coughs* pic.twitter.com/0QdBuH97b3

Schepmans described this as the last straw on a Facebook post and has since been preparing the case.
