BRUSSELS — After police raids on Thursday morning at the homes of Filippo Gaone and Pietro Allatta, police raided the office of lawyer Laurent Denis two hours later as investigations into the Belgian fraud scandal moved up a gear.

Police officers arrived at the home La Louvière football club manager Pietro Allatta in Chapelle-lez-Herlaimont at about 6am on Thursday.

However, officers needed a locksmith to open the house door and were only able to enter the premises at 6.30am and start the search.

A second team of about 10 police officers arrived at the Courcelles home of Gaone at about 6am and started searching the premises.

They then took the La Louvière club chairman to one of his companies, Factory Store, where another raid was launched.

The first group of police left the business premises at about 8.45am, but sources have indicated to Belgian media that inquiries there could take five to six hours.
