Oussama Atar, a Belgian of Moroccan descent, is almost certainly the main culprit of the Paris and Brussels attacks. Question: why was he living freely when he should have been kept in a Iraqi jail? Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY
The following document demonstrates that the Belgian government intervened to obtain the release of Ousama Atar from the Iraqi government.
Detention of Mr Oussama Atar in Iraq
09 October 2010
Pursuant to the demonstration organised today by the family of Mr Oussama Atar, a Belgian of Moroccan descent detained in Iraq, Federal Public Service Foreign Affairs reports the following:
Mr Atar’s situation is being followed closely. Repeated requests made by Belgium to the Iraqi government to consider an early release for humanitarian reasons have been fruitless so far.
Mr Atar received a consular visit this summer from our embassy in Amman. He is also being monitored closely by the International Red Cross. Pursuant in part to repeated contacts with the Iraqi authorities, we are confident that his health is being monitored appropriately.
FPS Foreign Affairs is in regular contact with Mr Atar’s family in Belgium.
