PARIS (Sputnik) — The relatives of the victims insist that the Belgian authorities had information that Salah and Ibrahim Abdeslam, who took part in the attacks on Paris, were radicalized but no action was taken.
"Despite the signs from the surveillance services in charge of monitoring people preparing for armed attacks, people who were known to be radicals were not prosecuted. The result is known — the deaths of innocent people. We are taking legal action against Belgium so that this failure will not happen again," lawyer Samia Maktouf was quoted as saying by the RTL radio station.
At least 130 people were killed, while another 268 were wounded, in the November Paris attacks. Daesh, which is outlawed in Russia, France and many other countries, claimed responsibility for the attacks.
Ibrahim Abdeslam blew himself up in front of a cafe in Paris. Saleh Abdeslam is believed to have provided logistical support to the suicide bombers and shooters. He was arrested on March 18 during a special anti-terrorist police operation in the Molenbeek district of Brussels.
