Eindhoven attack extradition decision postponed

Tuesday 05 February 2013

A decision on whether five youths wanted in connection with an attack in Eindhoven can be extradited from Belgium was postponed on Tuesday afternoon.

Five youths aged 17 to 19 living in and around the Belgian border town of Turnhout are suspected of involvement in an unprovoked attack on a 22-year-old man in Eindhoven on January 4.

The Belgian judge said after considering the case, he decided to make his decision next week Tuesday.

The youths were part of a gang of eight who hit and kicked their victim, who suffered severe concussion and injuries to his face. The gang was caught on security cameras.

The other three youths live in the Netherlands and have already reported to local police. Two of them have been remanded in custody.

Why? What possible reason could there be for the Belgian's not wanting them to face justice?

I guess they will be extradited. Nothing wrong with a judge taking time for a decision. It is only a week.

It would be foolish not to turn themselves in; who wants that hanging over their head for a lifetime.

I still can't understand why it will take 7 days for the judge to reach a decision on whether they should stand trial or not. Any sane person can make the decision in 30 seconds.
