Belgium bungled Muslim terrroist Salah Abdeslam’s arrest two days after Paris attacks due to law banning overnight raids

Belgian secret services located Europe’s most wanted man to a Brussels flat two days after the Paris attacks but bungled his capture because they were not allowed to raid the premises between 11pm and 5am, according to reports.

Salah Abdeslam, who was in Paris at the time of the November 13 attacks that killed 130 and whose brother blew himself up, is known to have returned to Belgium the following day as he was identified during a routine road check but allowed to leave.

    The three big lies:

    1. The check is in the mail.

    2. Of course, I’ll respect you in the morning.

    3. I’m from the government and I’m here to help you.

    Can’t expect a porcine police officer to get up at night to fight crime.
