Activist convicted of piracy against Flanders' prime minister

Leuven activist Marie Samijn, who broke into the Brussels office of Flemish minister-president Jan Jambon in December 2021, has recently been sentenced to 100 hours of community service by the Brussels criminal court.

Samijn has been accused of filming her visit to Hotel Errera (Errerahuis) and stole some items. As a result, she has been found guilty of theft and hacking, as she accessed a PC that had the access password written on it.
