Together with two accomplices he got away with 70,000 euros. The attack happened in January of this year when employees from the municipality of Molenbeek, where Mohamed had worked, wanted to transfer cash to a bank. Once arrested Mohamed Abdeslam immediately admitted his involvement claiming one of the officials was also involved and had provided inside information.
The judge accepted this version of events jailing the official for two years. As some of the money is still missing all those convicted have to repay part of the booty.
