It comes to weapons that a few days after the attacks in Brussels on 22 march 2016 are found in an apartment in the Paris suburb of Argenteuil where Reda Kriket lived. There were then five Kalashnikov rifles, 7 handguns and 1.3 kilograms of explosives found. The presumption is that the arsenal of weapons and explosives that was found was intended for the committing of a terrorist attack during the European football championship in France in June 2016.

New forensic research on the inside of this weapons resulted in the beginning of 2018 the tracks that are also included in the Dutch DNA-database. This ultimately led to the four suspects. Three of them are Monday, held in Groningen, the netherlands, Schinnen, the netherlands and Zaandam. The fourth suspect is already fixed in connection with another criminal offence. It comes to arms dealers, who own nothing to do with terror.

The DNA of three suspects were found on the weapons. DNA of a fourth suspect was found in a bag at the weapons lag.

Shooting ana tram stop

The wapenvondst in the French Argenteuil, led in 2016 to arrests in the Netherlands and Belgium. In Brussels, on march 25, three men were arrested. A man, Abderahmane Ameuroud, was then by special units shot at a tram stop in Brussels.

In Rotterdam, were then 45 pounds of ammunition found, and cartridge clips for the kalashnikovs. Also is a drum, found a kalashnikov in which 200 bullets fit in less than 30 seconds can be fired.

In this study, when eventually seven men held. The prime suspect, Anis Bahri, is extradited to France and prosecuted for preparing a terrorist attack along with his accomplice Reda Kriket.

Arms trade

The delivery of the weapons from the Netherlands to the terrorist group behind the attacks in Paris and Brussels, is just another indication that the Netherlands is an important transit port for fully-automatic weapons.

From a document that is in the hands of the NRC and The Standard can be derived that the terrorists in the attacks in Brussels itself also use their weapons from the Netherlands came. It is a statement of an alleged spijtoptant, Osama Krayem. This 25-year-old Syrian Swede had to blow up in the subway during the attacks in Brussels. On camera images from the metro station Maelbeek see the police how he just in advance of handful of words changes with fellow terrorist Khalid El Bakraoui, who himself shortly afterwards blow up in the subway station.

If the Belgian police are after him, the day after the attacks, arrest, reveals Krayem how the terrorists their weapons came: they were – according to Krayem – in the Netherlands bought by Ibrahim El Bakraoui, the brother of Khalid, which itself has blown up. Whether that’s true, is not clear.
