Landlord Nemmouche testifies: It was a friendly, pleasant young man. Nothing to say
The jury in the assisenproces about the attack on the Jewish Museum received this afternoon re an integral examination of hoofdbeschuldigde Mehdi Nemmouche, a few days after his arrest in Marseille. They saw how Nemmouche during the hearing, arrogant and at his convenience and on his right to remain silent invokes. They were also given a testimony of his landlord, presented a more positive picture of Nemmouche painted, one of a friendly, pleasant young man.

Friday gave the jury a hearing date of June 2, 2014, a week after the attack, and three days after his arrest in Marseille. Also there were the interrogators not much more from Nemmouche than the invocation of his right to remain silent. Today was more of the same, when the hearing of 3 June 2014, was projected.

to the extent that Nemmouche at a certain moment of his interrogators says that he is in 99 percent of cases, the ‘DAS’ will say - ‘Droit au Silence’, a commonly used abbreviation. A difference with the hearing of a day earlier that Nemmouche less extensive answers when he speaks. However, he is once again clearly at ease, seems arrogant even: he makes jokes with the interrogators, leaning sometimes to stretch back.

Just one or two times, he falls out of his role. For the first time as is asked of him why he Ventolin. "Because I have asthma have", replies Nemmouche. If the interrogators that doubtful, sounds, laughing, "you Know better than I whether I have asthma?" Then he explains that you Ventolin in France only on prescription can get, but in Asia (where he has been on a trip), not. At the end of the hearing announces Nemmouche to that next time he will not show up for another round of questions. "List all your questions and write everywhere "DAS", what it sounds like.

Leg stiff

Also in his first interrogation after extradition to Belgium, Nemmouche immediately clear what he sentence is: “I do not ask a single question to answer, as he reacts after the interrogator him on his rights has pointed out. “I'm not going to answer because I do not want that my statements in the Belgian and French press, to appear. I don't want to hear more attending and I demand that I should return to my cell”, it sounds on 29 July, two months after the attack on the Jewish Museum.

According Nemmouche were the records of his interrogation in France to the press sold. The Belgian interrogators emphasize that they are obliged to their questions and that they are the essence of the research to respect and nothing to the press to tell it. Nemmouche holding the leg, however, is stiff: “I do not come back on my decision. If the only way to get to my cell to return, my mouth, then I hold my mouth.”

The Belgian film that the interview was declined, explained today to the jury why he is obliged to still ask questions. “If someone in Belgium is delivered, we need him in a first interview to ask questions and then to judge whether or not detention.”


In his commentary on the projection left, Sébastien Courtoy know that he and his confrater, and Henri Laquay have opted for the strategy of the “actual right to remain silent” to apply. “Unlike in France, where my client for 10 hours to subject. And then on the basis of his attitude, trying to deduce whether or not he is guilty.” A comment which is immediately countered by advocate-general Yves Moreau: “Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you have heard correctly: the defense used the right to remain silent as a strategy.”

positive image

A different picture was given the jury of the Brussels landlord of Nemmouche, that his apartment the defendant rented at the time of the attack on the Jewish Museum. “It was a friendly, polite, pleasant young man, nothing to say”, said the landlord.

On the question of chairman Laurence Massart, or Nemmouche radicalised seemed, was the reply, formally: “not at All.” The wife of the landlord, and that a dental practice has on the ground floor of the building, admits those words. “I always see who enters the building and he always said goeiendag, very friendly and helpful. The shock was great when we heard that he was picked up was in the context of the attack.” The woman remembers that Nemmouche “rushed seemed to” when he was on the day of the facts, Saturday 24 may, around 16.00 hours to enter the building, just after the attack in the museum.


at the End of april reported Nemmouche to his landlord that he had to return to France, because his father sick. “He paid already for the month of may, so he was going to return.” About the time when Nemmouche his landlord asked him to reserve a bus in the direction of France, “because he had not found a job and wanted to return”, there is a lack of clarity. According to the landlord introduced Nemmouche, the question on Friday, the day before the attack. According to the wife was that Saturday 24 may, a few hours after the attack, and at the same time that Nemmouche the wificode had asked.

After the testimony of the couple was based a discussion between the defense and the prosecution about that wificode. The defense, on behalf of Sébastien Courtoy, will later in the pleadings try to prove that not Nemmouche, but someone else uses the computer that his client would belong. Public prosecutor Yves Moreau suggested -cynically - that there is “a ghost went round in the apartment that the laptop has”.
