Some 95 percent of thieves on Brussels’ public transport are foreign

Some 95 percent of pickpockets that roam the isles and platforms of public transportation in Brussels are foreigners, according to figures from the Belgian Ministry of Internal Affairs.

    The nasty statistics were obtained by a member of parliament, Brecht Vermeulen, who requested information regarding the nationalities of petty thieves.

    Vermeulen told local outlet Sceptr that between 2008 and the first quarter of 2018, only five percent of pickpockets caught by authorities were Belgians, while the remaining 95 percent fell into three subcategories.

    “The largest group are foreign nationals who come from outside the EU,” Sceptr reported. “They represent almost 46 percent of pickpockets on Brussels public transport. Some 43 percent of the cases concern residents of the European Union, and the remaining 5,9 percent come from European countries that are not members of the EU, such as Albania.”

    Vermeulen added that the data was “unacceptable” furthermore, because the legal status of the foreign offenders were not noted by the police.

    “We can not put our heads in the sand,” Vermeulen said. “Measuring is knowing. Only with detailed information can the relevant political authorities and security services draw up an adequate security policy.

    “The problems with migrants at the Brussels-North Station, one of the major hubs of public transport in Brussels, are known.” Brussels-North Station has been turned into a large migrant squatter camp during the cold winter months.

    Sam van Rooy, a representative of Flemish nationalist party Vlaams Belang, recently tweeted footage of himself walking through Brussels-North Station. “The whole ground floor of Brussels-North is a dirty, dirty and unsafe open illegal camp,” Rooy noted.

    Thousands of illegal immigrants are living in the heart of Brussels, the capital of Belgium and Europe, and the government does nothing about it,” says Belgian journalist Tom Lallemand.

    He told Infowars Europe: “In the station they harass women and cause an incredibly nasty smell because they leave their waste and even feces everywhere. Bus companies avoid the station because it’s too dangerous and the government asks their officials to do the same.”
