Belgian billed for prosecution of his children's killer


news.bbc.co.uk

A Belgian man has protested at being asked to pay for the prosecution of his ex-wife who killed their five children, a local newspaper reports.

"I am disgusted and revolted," Bouchaib Moqadem told Le Soir newspaper.

Genvieve Lhermitte was sentenced to life in prison in December 2009 for murdering their son and four daughters while Mr Moqadem was on holiday.

This is an interesting concept: pay for your own trial if you are found guilty...

Of course in this case, the ex-husband is summoned to pay as his ex-wife has nothing to pay with now that she is in jail! I understand that the government is asking for the money to come out of her share of the sale of the house but is that really fair?

I believe that those who don't believe in "government" should be subjected to this policy in the US. Perhaps this would lower taxes, and eliminate the "worrying" about paying for other people's right to justice...
That's just too socialistic...

Keeping the peace,

Basically, if you're going to bill me for the prosecution, then I get to do the prosecuting.

I'll spend 30 cents on a bullet; one to the head and case closed.

Well said but then that would be unconstitutional right? Don't people have the right to a fair trial under the constitution?
