After releasing actual images of the mysterious bomb suspect arrested in Copenhagen last Friday, Danish police got the information that a French sports trainer in Belgium has identified the man as one of his former students. Perhaps the bomb case is now partially solved if the identity of the suspect is now confirmed to be true.
The sports trainer told a Belgian newspaper the bomb suspect is 24year-old Lors D. from Chechnya who had trained in his boxing club („Cocktail Club“) in the city of Liege for about five years. He thought his student is now going to study Architecture in Brussels.
Instead his girlfriends tells the one-legged Chechen left for Luxembourg about two weeks ago. Prior to that travel there was alot of flying between Belgium and Chechnya, the girlfriend said.
Back in Belgium Lors D., born January 1986, came to Belgium with his mother, a doctor, about five years ago and was regarded as a „quality boxer“. Of his last twenty fights he had won twelve with two ending up as a draw. See his record below.
Meanwhile Danish Police has announced an upcoming press conference on the Copenhagen bomb case with new information to reveal.
The information brought forward by the Belgian boxing trainer is very likely to be accurate given the outer appearance of the bomb suspect who indeed could by a White originally from the Caucasus. His noise seems to have been broken several times, a typical sign of a boxing career.
Denmark as well as Belgium have two of the largest populations of Chechen refugees in Europe. In Belgium there are close to 10.000 Chechens living in exile, most of them fled First and Second Chechnya Wars in early 1990s and 2000. A certain percentage of those have been given political asylum and some even obtained citizenship.
