Before being the most wanted man in Europe, Salah Abdeslam could be the most controlled man in France. The evening of the Paris attacks, police and gendarmes verify its identity three times while it is exfiltrated by friends to Belgium. The young Belgian of 26 years is not known to the authorities at that time. Three months before the attacks on 31 July 2015, he has also been a routine traffic stop, reported Monday Le Parisien .

It is the French customs officers who arrested him in St. Louis (Haut-Rhin), near the German and Swiss borders. Salah Abdeslam then rolls into a rented Megane in Brussels. His papers are in order, he continues on his way. According to the newspaper, the Alsatian town is only a “stage”.

He used his name to rent various vehicles and apartments. And the young Belgian was also preview the months before the attacks in Hungary, one of the crossing points for migrants. It is then with two individuals using false identities Belgian. Two men presented today as the real “brains” of the attacks.
