BRUSSELS – There may be a decision this week on a Limburg boy who has been in prison in the US for two months. The 19-year-old is being held on suspicion of paedophilia.

The boy was chatting online with an American girl for two years. He was arrested this summer when he went to the US to meet her.

The boy thought that the girl was 16, but in actuality she is only 13 years old.

"I think there will be developments in the case this week," says lawyer Gerald Corthouts. "If our information is correct, he could be getting some good news."
