For Duck Zucker, a specialist in sexual assault, the murderer Julie was not free for a long time.
The funeral of Julie Van Espen, a 23-year-old student who was raped and killed two weeks ago while cycling with her friends in Antwerp, takes place this Saturday in Schilde. Only the family, friends and relatives will be able to attend the ceremony in the church, the family specifically asked that no politician be present, even if their condolences were accepted in the last days.
Specialist in the analysis of criminal behavior, Danièle Zucker has no doubt about it "The suspect would continue and donate other victims".
Danièle Zucker, who has treated more than 1,000 rape victims, is a reference in Belgium to the problem of sexual assault. In the case of a study carried out at the request of the European Commission, Brussels examined the treatment of 100 cases of rape by the Belgian justice system. The applications are constructive. "In the sample, half of the perpetrators remained unknown: of the remaining 50, 4 were tried, 3 received sentences suspended, 1 sentenced to a real sentence, 100 cases of rape, 1 perpetrator of a prison sentence".
