“My apologies that the family is not there,” says master Jan Leysen, who are the parents of the victim represents. “We want to avoid that, they crap all over him, they deserve that.” After, Leysen further on Gyselbrecht. “I've with a lot attention listened the past few days, I've especially listened to what is not said. I have heard nothing about the actual facts in the case of master Platteau and master D'hondt. There was nothing said about the murder. Nothing! I have no word of regret or excuse heard, he has only done his best for his own skin to save. And he has an incredible amount of suffering added to the family. Your daughter, you kill her husband and you say nothing! She's sitting in the bin, and your father is silent for his own skin to save, and Stijn Saelens to portray as a pedophile.” And then also the widow of the victim and daughter of the Gyselbrecht in the visor was taken, “Elisabeth Gyselbrecht is not a civil party. The testimonies that they gave about the abuse with the daughter to Stijn black.”
Elisabeth Gyselbrecht also came today for the first time in the court. It remains to be seen whether they actually have something say.
