BRUSSELS – Terror suspect Salah Abdeslam's Belgian lawyer says he plans to take legal action against a French prosecutor for breaching the confidentiality of the investigation into the deadly Nov. 13 rampage in Paris.
Sven Mary told Belgian public broadcaster RTBF on Sunday that part of the press conference given a day earlier by Paris prosecutor Francois Molins "is a violation. It's a fault, and I cannot let it go unchallenged."
Molins said Abdeslam told Belgian officials he had "wanted to blow himself up at the Stade de France" as a suicide bomber on Nov. 13 but that he backed out at the last minute.
France is seeking Abdeslam's extradition for trial there, but Mary said Saturday that he would fight any attempt to hand over his client.
