In Belgium, a dangerous criminal who was released by mistake after being mistaken for another prisoner is fortunately back behind bars.
On April 24, the police managed to get the fugitive Mohamed BB back, who was then on the Belgian federal police’s most wanted list, local media 7sur7 reported.
The latter, who is serving a sentence in Saint-Gilles prison for sexual exploitation, kidnapping and rape, was released “by mistake” a few days earlier, after being confused with a prisoner with a similar name, according to the media Het Nieuwsblad.
“We have opened an internal investigation to determine what went wrong. When we have established where the fault comes from, specific measures will be taken, ”said prison spokeswoman Kathleen Van De Vijver, very embarrassed, according to 7sur7.
The Belgian, considered dangerous, would have quickly been found with members of his family, near the prison, and would have surrendered without making a fuss.
