Our take: A comprehensive look at the religious undercurrents of a horrible criminal case in Belgium.
One of the most notorious criminal cases in modern European history has returned to the public eye, dominating the front pages and leaders of Belgiums newspapers. A judge has agreed to release Michelle Martin from prison on the condition she enter the Convent of the Les Soeurs Clarisses de Malonne (Poor Clares) and remain under police supervision.
The news of the parole has prompted an appeal by state prosecutors, public protests, outrage in the press and the mayor of Namur has ordered police to guard the convent. Why such a fuss? The opening paragraphs of a solid AP story tells us why.
