brugge - The lawsuit about the so-called castle murder in Belgium continues on 20 February. The lawyers of the four suspects can then make their pleas. Almost two weeks have been allocated for this. The lawyers would actually argue in October, but this was delayed due to a final request for refusal.
In the case the court in Bruges deals with the murder of the Flemish castle dweller Stijn Saelens in the town of Wingene in 2012. Chief suspect André G. has announced that he has instructed Pierre S. to kill his son-in-law Saelens.
The two other suspects are Dutch. Franciscus 'Roy' L. from Tilburg (40) would have assisted his now deceased uncle, among other things by burying the victim. The other, Evert de C. from Zeeland (53), played a mediating role according to the OM.
