LTuesday morning’s hearing in the trial of the 2016 Brussels attacks began with yet another blow from Ibrahim Farisi. His lawyer Me Carrette wished to speak to let it be known that he no longer exercised the role of counsel for his client. The accused then replied angrily, before being evacuated manu militari from the courtroom.

“I wanted to take the floor to inform you that Mr. Berger and I have come out of deference to the court since we have no instructions from Mr. Farisi; at the present time we are no longer the advisers of Ibrahim Farisi”, declared Mr. Carrette straight away.

The accused then took the floor to address the court. “The world is a globe, it is big. If I had wanted to leave the territory, I would have done so, ”he said, looking a little haggard.

Smail Farisi, the other accused appearing free and brother of Ibrahim Farisi, then tried to interrupt his brother by grabbing the microphone before being invited by the president to return to his seat.

“I had an altercation with my lawyer, it is not progressing, Madam President! continued Ibrahim Farisi. “I have a question: “Mr. Abrini, do you know me? “, he then launched, turning to the box of the accused.

“Where is Osama Atar? You don’t have a death certificate,” the defendant continued angrily. Despite several exhortations from the president to remain calm, Ibrahim Farisi continued his diatribes, while being led out of the room by police officers.

“I want all the accused to remain for the civil parties. The jurors do not understand anything! Give us our innocence. Those who did, they died. You feared them. Tell me what you’ve had on me for 7 years. Acquit me! he shouted again from the threshold of the courtroom.

The hearing resumed at 10 a.m. after being suspended.
