Antisemitic death threats against Brussels MP Viviane Teitelbaum

Two Brussels Propreté agents allegedly made antisemitic threats towards MP Viviane Teitelbaum on Avenue des Chalets in Uccle.

“I have had a Viviane Teitelbaum sign at the edge of my garden for three weeks. On Whit Monday, the weather was glorious, and we were in the garden. Around 4 p.m., we, along with three other adults, heard an officer shout ‘Death to Viviane’ three times before fleeing at high speed. We then saw the Brussels Propreté truck, which was already too far away for us to note the registration number,” said a local resident.

A complaint for incitement to murder and antisemitism was filed by the local resident as well as by Viviane Teitelbaum.

The Liberal MP says she is extremely shocked. “What happened on Monday really shook me. I have filed a complaint, and I hope that the investigating judge will carry out the necessary investigative duties to find the perpetrators of this act.”

For its part, the Brussels Propreté agency claims to be conducting an internal investigation to try to identify the perpetrators.
