Jailer, Torturer, and Murderer

A French citizen named Nicolas Henin was kidnapped and held hostage last year by Syrian mujahideen. After his release, he identified Mehdi Nemmouche as one of his Syrian captors. Mr. Nemmouche is the primary suspect in the Jewish Museum murders in Brussels on May 24 of this year. Four people were shot to death in that attack.

Video transcript:

00:00   An ex-hostage in Syria reveals that Nemmouche was his jailer.
00:08   After the arrest of Mehdi Nemmouche
00:12   for actions he was accused of in Brussels, I was confronted
00:16   with a number of audio-visual documents that permitted me
00:20   to identify him formally. Mehdi Nemmouche mistreated me
00:24   himself. I don’t know of other Western hostages
00:28   whom he has ill-treated. However, I could
00:32   hear him torture Syrian prisoners
00:36   in this facility where we were. After smashing in my face
00:40   he showed me his gloves, of which he was very proud, asking me,
00:44   “Have you seen these motorcycle gloves? I bought them just for you,
00:48   to bash in your face, did you like them?”
00:52   This just about sums up his character: violent and
00:57   provocateur at the same time.
