Interesting story with few details. But I thought this part of the news story was noteworthy:
The Belgian prosecutor’s office said last night that there was a “judicial instruction” from Martine Quintin, the investigating judge, that meant they could give no “explanation” and no detail about the killing.
“This is usual in such a serious murder investigation,” a spokesman said.
Ordered to give no details . . . this is usual . . .in a serious murder investigation. As opposed to an un-serious murder investigation, I suppose.
If the assailants are street muggers, I would think that a wide broadcast of details would be valuable in the cause of apprehending them. If hit men, likewise.
Unless somebody wants to be sure whose hitmen are involved.
