brussels - Again an indication has emerged that the Belgian gendarmerie played a role in the bloody attacks of the Gang of Nijvel in the eighties. According to a former policeman, after his robbery at two supermarkets in 1985, he and his colleagues were not allowed to pursue their fast police vehicles.
'We had to keep our task: carrying out alcohol checks in the neighborhood,' according to Het Nieuwsblad, in a letter to Stef Vermassen, the lawyer of several victims. The lawyer will forward the letter from the former gendarmerie to the examining magistrate.
