The court of appeal in Antwerp has on Tuesday decided to have the Belgian nationality, to Fouad Belkacem, the former head of Sharia4Belgium.
According to the Antwerp public prosecutor-general’s lap, the former leader of the terrorist group Sharia4Belgium is seriously deficient in his obligations as a Belgian citizen, and he forms a permanent threat to public safety. “Mr. Belkacem is only interested in our rights as he which in his hand, namely for radical ideas to spread,” had the public ministry during the pleadings made. The advocate of Belkacem acknowledged these shortcomings but did not find that he any longer a threat. “He has a lot of regrets, and would never have thought that the whole Sharia4Belgium-story this would turn out,” she said. “The only thing he now wants, is for his family, work and ordinary lives’, argued the lawyer.
The court of appeal had ultimately no ears to and took Belkacem yet the Belgian nationality. Belkacem has now only the Moroccan nationality.
