In the meantime, the investigation was closed. “On Wednesday, September 15, the council chamber in Ghent referred three people (the friend, the dealer and the person who supplied drugs to the dealer) to the criminal court,” the prosecutor’s office said. “The council chamber has released the friend and the drug dealer under certain conditions, but the prosecutor’s office has appealed against this, leaving these two suspects in jail. The Chamber of Indictment (KI) will rule on this within 15 days.”
The friend will have to answer for supplying drugs, with the aggravating circumstance that they caused death, culpable negligence and intentional blows. The dealer for supplying drugs that have caused death and the third person for possessing and selling drugs without a license.
