Mary also indicated Abdeslam wants to be extradited to France.
Mr. Abdeslam "wants to leave for France as quickly as possible," Sven Mary, his lawyers, told reporters Thursday morning after a court hearing in Brussels.
Abdeslam, who until last week was the most wanted man in Europe, initially opposed returning to the scene of the crime, but after Brussels he now wants to "explain himself in France."
It doesn't matter where Abeslam chooses to "explain himself." There is no justifying the blood on his hands. As for him not even being aware of the follow up attack, we'll let the court decide.
