AWDC furious over Antwerp public prosecutor’s indiscriminate communication on drug money laundering case

08 october 2014
AWDC has expressed its outrage in response to the article entitled "Diamantairs arrested for drug money laundering" that was published in Gazet van Antwerpen on 2 October, 2014.
"For the second time in just three months, our entire industry has been put in a bad light because of an incorrect communication by the Antwerp Department of Justice," said Margaux Donckier, spokeswoman for AWDC. In July, the Antwerp prosecutor already had to rectify its miscommunication concerning the alleged arrest of Baron Dilip Mehta, which proved to be a case of mistaken identity.
Even though the Antwerp public prosecutor rectified its miscommunication twice at AWDC’s explicit request, the damage it has caused is irrevocable, AWDC said.
