The mail that had been withheld included some 500 pieces, from Christmas cards to letters sent home by children at a youth camp. The Belgian mail company Bpost is delivering all the letters that were still in the envelopes, sending their apologies to those who were waiting for their mail in vain.
"All the letters that were discovered in the man's house, will be sent to the right address", spokesman Fred Lens told our colleagues of the local radio station Radio 2 Vlaams-Brabant. "We apologise for what happened. We also launched a complaint against the man." Bpost added that incidents like these are "very rare".
