Two weeks ago, Nabil B. announced through his lawyers that he is temporarily suspending his cooperation in the Marengo trial, in which Ridouan Taghi is the main suspect. He no longer wants to answer questions or appear in court, unless the court forces him to be present. His lawyers informed the court that the crown witness takes this position because the Public Prosecution Service would not be able to sufficiently guarantee the safety of the crown witness’s family. The lawyers criticized the government’s lack of decisiveness and communication.
At the same time, the Marengo process ging just through. A number of murder files were discussed without the key witness being able to be questioned about this. Today, the files surrounding the mistaken murder of Hakim Changachi and the attempted murder of Khalid H. are on the agenda. The crown witness has admitted to being involved in this and will also be present in the courtroom. Whether he will talk today remains to be seen. The lawyers of the suspects believe that he should provide answers, because otherwise he will break his agreement with the Public Prosecution Service.
