Minister of Justice Koen Geens (CD&V) reformed in early 2016 the rechtbankstructuur. Murder and manslaughter would be from then for a criminal court to be treated. The Constitutional Court whistled the minister at the end of 2017 back, so had murder cases back to council. But that they were in Veurne suddenly forgotten. The public prosecutor's office of Veurne confirms the incorrect referral of the case to the criminal session of 8 may. “There is something went wrong, during the session of chambers. Who or what caused the error, we won't go further on in”, it sounds.
In any case, had neither the judge, prosecutor, registrar and president of the chambers of the false referral noted. The decision is rollback, however, may not. “The case will be before the criminal court. The public prosecutor will the incompetence claim. The case should go to Appeal for a scheme of jurisdiction, which the Chamber of incrimination the right court will determine,” said the public prosecutor's office of Veurne.
