first_imgOn Monday, Prosecutor General Yves Moreau called for a life sentence for Nemmouche and a minimum sentence of 30 years for Bendrer, AFP reported.During the hearing, Moreau called Nemmouche a “psychopath” and a “coward,” adding “you kill people by shooting them from behind, you kill old ladies by shooting them with a weapon of war, you kill because you are happy to kill and because you know you are taking no risks.” Prosecutors on Monday called for a life sentence for Mehdi Nemmouche, who was last week found guilty of the murder of four people in Brussels in 2014.French-born Nemmouche, who spent a year fighting in Syria for Islamic State, opened fire at the city’s Jewish Museum on May 24, 2014. Three people died at the scene and one died later in hospital.A man who helped plan the attack and provided the weapons, Nacer Bendrer, was also last week found guilty of murder.last_img
