Sven Mary will not defend Salah Abdeslam at Paris terror trial

Lawyer Sven Mary (49) will not assist Salah Abdeslam (31) in the major terrorism trial in Paris, which starts on September 8 and will last eight months. He says this in an interview with De Morgen and Het Laatste Nieuws. Mary says he chose his daughters. During Abdeslam’s earlier trial in Brussels, the lawyer’s children were given police protection for days. “My 12-year-old eldest is still anxious,” says Mary, for whom it is also not practical and financially feasible. Mary informed Abdeslam with a letter. Abdeslam is not without a lawyer, because he still has his French lawyers Olivia Ronen and Martin Vettes. There is no question of a definitive break. “Abdeslam knows that he can count on me during the trial in Belgium about the attacks in Zaventem and Maalbeek.” Tired of the paywall?
