95 percent of pickpockets on Brussels’ public transport are foreigners

Some 95 percent of pickpockets operating on or near public transportation in Brussels are foreigners, according to figures obtained by a member of parliament.

Belgian MP Brecht Vermeulen reportedly requested information regarding the nationalities of petty thieves from the Ministry of Internal Affairs and shared his findings with local outlet Sceptr.

Between 2008 and the first quarter of 2018, only five percent of pickpockets caught by authorities held Belgian nationality.
