brussels - Salah Abdeslam is in a French cell, but from 18 December he gets a trial in a Flemish court. Because Abdeslam wants to be there, there must be a solution that may consist of daily flights in a helicopter.
If the trial begins against Salah Abdeslam on December 18, the case will be dealt with for four days. The terrorist is in Flanders because he was involved in a shooting shootout with the police in March 2016, who entered a shelter in Vorst. Three agents were injured.
According to the newspaper La Dernière Heure, authorities are planning to fly Abdeslam every morning by helicopter, to bring him to Paris again in the evening.
The 28-year-old Frenchman is now in a cell near Paris for his role in the attacks in that same city, November 2015. The French would fear that Abdeslam refuses to return to France once he is in a Belgian cell. In addition, he had problems in an extra secure prison in Bruges earlier.
