In Belgium popular singer Andrei Lugovski (34) is in critical condition in the hospital after an attempted poisoning. The originally White-Rus had thallium administered, an ingredient of rat poison. The public prosecutor’s office of West-Flanders confirms that there is a judicial investigation.
It is not clear when Lugovski the poison administered was. There are still no suspects arrested. The public prosecutor’s office gives no comment on the matter.
The zangloopbaan of the Minsk born Lugovski began in 2007 with his participation in the talent show Idool, the Flemish version of Idols. He worked among others together with the ’emperor of the Flemish song’ Will Tura. Lugovski moved in 1999 with his parents to Belgium.
