He adds that it was never his intention to kill the man. This has been confirmed by the man’s solicitor.
Brussels magistrates will decide today whether or not the man should remain in custody.
The man’s solicitor says that the driver of the car that was involved in the accident that led to the incident had called his cousin to come and take him to hospital. His client was with the cousin in his car.
They had been on a night out and all three men had been drinking. The man says that he had never intended to kill land that he had hit the inspector just once.
He is being held in custody on suspicion of grievous bodily harm resulting in unintentional death.
