"It was no limits" they say. Quite literally. When it comes to the investigation into Philippe Cryns and the victim-witnesses X2 and VM1, it would make sense that there are unspoken "anecdotes" about Le Mirano. With many ties to the fascist underground, and the alleged claim of Juan Mendez, it is suspected that there may be a connection to the Gang of Nijvel.
“You don’t believe that they [Haemers gang] did these robberies with the four or five of them? To pull off something like that you need an army of accomplices! Well-placed accomplices." (December 1993, quote of Etienne Delhuvenne)
"I met Nihoul in a restaurant in Brussels. 'I am the Monster of Belgium,' he roared at me by way of greeting. He is confident he will never come to trial and that the evidence against him will never be heard by any jury. During the course of our meal he, apparently playfully, grabbed me, tickling, and finally pulled me over on to him in the restaurant booth until I had to appeal to my colleagues for rescue."
