Two years in prison for Flemish ex-beursgoeroe
Van Rossem was over a month ago, sentenced to two years imprisonment. The court in Brussels was the ex-politician guilty of forgery, money laundering, tax evasion and scams. He said he never went to the prison to go and hinted it would prefer out of life. He recently gave some afscheidsinterviews.
The Fleming was previously sentenced to five years in prison for beleggingsfraude. The millions that he was earned, remained outside the reach of justice.
