BRUSSELS — The father of the murdered Nathalie has spoken publicly to Francophone broadcaster RTBF about the death of the 10-year-old girl, stressing that he wants to know what happened to her.
Consequently, Didier Mahy has lodged civil law proceedings in the investigation in to the murder and rape of his daughter in Liège last month.
The parents of Stacy Lemmens, who was murdered along with Nathalie, had earlier initiated civil proceedings.
Nathalie's mother, Catherine Dizier, does not want to initiate a civil case, preferring instead to freely give testimony at the trial.
By initiating civil proceedings, Mahy will soon be able to examine the judicial dossier, a fact that is of great importance to him.
"I want to use that to find out what happened. I also want to know the minor details, perhaps then I might understand better what has happened," he said.
The parents of both the murdered Nathalie and her step-sister Stacy are still waiting for the results of DNA tests.
They hope the analysis will shed light on the role of Abdallah Ait Oud, the only suspect in the case.
"I hope that he is the culprit, that the district of Saint-Léonard can live peacefully again," Mahy said.
Nathalie's father returned to work several days ago and he said it is doing him good.
