Reading time: 1 min

A woman in her forties, who worked in the voluntary sector, was found dead on Thursday morning in a cell of the “zonal guard” of the Brussels-Capital-Ixelles police, rue Royale. The victim had been arrested during the night from Wednesday to Thursday in the Châtelain district, in Ixelles.

The prosecution tells us that “the death could correspond to a suicide”. The family of the victim, Sourour A., ​​contests this thesis through his lawyer, Selma Benkhelifa, with RTBF: “The family does not believe at all in the hypothesis of suicide. They were told that she would have strangled herself with her sweater, which seems impossible”. “My sister was not a suicidal person. She had a 19-year-old son who she lived with and who was everything to her. She would never have abandoned him, ”said the sister of the deceased.

An investigation is underway into the circumstances of the arrest and detention of the forties. The images from the cell’s cameras were captured and viewed by Committee P.
