Ten Salafists in Belgian Army

Around fifty soldiers are currently subject to surveillance by the intelligence and security service (SGRS).
This is indicated in a recent report by Comité R (the Parliamentary Surveillance Committee).

Ten such soldiers are thought to be Salafists, amongst whom four may possibly be actively engaging in radical Islam, the Sudpresse publications are stating today (Friday).

Other members of the army under surveillance are suspected of being linked to criminal gangs or indeed the far-Right.

Per the Constitution, it is not possible to remove a soldier simply on the basis of his views alone. Only the commission of actual offences can lead to his redundancy.
