On the evening of January 9, Ibrahima, a young 23 year old from Brussels, died in hospital after a police arrest near the Gare Du Nord station.

The police waited several hours before contacting the victim's family, around 2:30 am, without giving the name of the hospital where the young man was.

The police explained that Ibrahima was arrested for violating curfew and then collapsed. However, he was reportedly arrested before 10:00 p.m. According to the newspaper La Capitale, Ibrahima was arrested while filming a police checkpoint. Filming the police in Belgium is however a right. At the Saint-Jean hospital, doctors explained to the family that he had several hematomas on his body and that he had died of cardiac arrest.

Ibrahima was in good physical health, it is unlikely that a heart attack shook him for no reason. We have no further information at this time. The police have yet to comment on the matter. An meeting is circulating on social networks, on Wednesday 13/01 at 3 pm in front of the police station of Gare Du Nord, 58 rue de Brabant. Our thoughts are with Ibrahima's relatives.
