Salah Abdeslam’s trial in Belgium

The trial of Salah Abdeslam, one of the main suspects of the Paris attack from November 2015, will take place next December 18 in Brussels.

Only survivor of the commandos who killed 130 on November 13, 2015 in Paris, Salah Abdeslam must be temporarily handed over to Belgium during his trial for a shooting in Brussels during his run.

The audience will start at 8.45 am before the Correctional court of Brussels from December 18 to 22. Salah Abdeslam will be judged together with Soufien Ayari – known as the the silent accomplice.

The Brussels judicial authorities aim to judge both Salah and Soufien for the shooting that took place in Brussels (rue Dries) on 15 March 2016, only three days before Abdeslam’s arrestment.

Mr. Abdeslam and Mr. Ayari are suspected of murder attempt and illegal possession of weapons.

The French judicial authorities have accepted to transfer Salah Abdeslam for this trial, but he will go back to France following the Belgian trial.
