The 55-year-old Masmeijer, in Belgium, several outlets ran it, says that he had a number of people out of the file knows. “The only thing is that I have a couple of people in my case with each other. They were acquaintances, which in my case came. To a cousin of my wife. That at a certain moment, very strange going to do. Out of fear they are going to disclaim. They come to me.”
