Dimitri Bontinck, the father of Jejoen Bontinck, leaves after the verdict is delivered in Antwerp
Dimitri Bontinck, the father of Jejoen Bontinck, leaves after the verdict is delivered in a trial of 46 people charged with belonging to a terrorist organisation that recruited young men to fight with Islamist militants in Syria, in Antwerp February 11, 2015. A Belgian court jailed Fouad Belkacem, the head of Sharia4Belgium, for 12 years on Wednesday, ruling that his Islamist group was a terrorist organisation that brainwashed young men into joining militants in the Middle East. Much of the prosecution case has relied on the testimony of 20-year-old Jejoen Bontinck, a member of Sharia4Belgium who made national headlines when his father went to Syria to convince him to return. On Wednesday, Judge Luc Potargent gave Bontinck a 40-month suspended sentence. Prosecutors had recommended he be jailed for four years but he finally received a much lighter sentence after providing evidence against his former fellow fighters.
