Belgian Salah Abdeslam transferred to French court for questioning

PARIS, May 20 (KUNA) — Belgian born-and-raised terror suspect Salah Abdeslam was transferred to a Paris court from a jail outside the city early Friday for questioning by anti-terrorism magistrates about his alleged role in the November 13 attacks that killed 130 people in the French capital, media and judiciary sources said.
Abdeslam, 26, has vowed through his lawyer, that he will cooperate with investigators seeking to piece together the spate of attacks here six months ago which are strongly linked with a Belgian terror cell that also carried out the recent attacks in Brussels that killed dozens.
The suspect in front of the Paris magistrates is practically the only member of the terror cells left alive. The others either blew themselves up in suicide attacks or were killed in police raids.
Abdeslam was seen on national television arriving at the central courthouse in Paris under heavy escort with a surveillance helicopter accompanying his convoy.
He was originally arrested by Belgian security forces and transferred here under a warrant in late April.
He is expected to be quizzed for several weeks at least by the magistrates here before being formally charged.
Police have released video footage showing Abdeslam travelling between Belgium and France on the night of the terrorist attacks and also they say there is DNA evidence linking him to the terror cells. His brother died in one of the terrorist attacks in Paris six months ago. (end) jk.gta
