Nidal, a 21-year-old Schaerbeek, is one of six people who were administratively arrested for “disturbing public order” in downtown Brussels after the Belgium-Portugal football match (in the night from Sunday to Monday).
Supporting photos of his injuries, he explains in particular having been beaten up by the police and bitten by a police dog when he was not one of the individuals who infiltrated groups of Red Devils supporters to attack the police throwing projectiles at him.
> He tells us about his Sunday evening: “Suddenly, there are police officers coming out of nowhere, who land in front of us”
> The young man claims to have suffered violence from the police: “There, I decide to get down to show that I am cooperating and I think that is the mistake I made, because, in the moment when I got down on the ground, there, it was chained, that blows, blows everywhere “
When questioned by us, the Brussels Capital / Ixelles police zone told us that “the chief of staff requested an internal investigation” and did not wish to make any other comment.
