Sister Dutch organizer Vestiville placed the arrest warrant on Sunday and had the same fate several hours later, according to Judge Hasselta's decision. The third suspect, their British partner, was also arrested on Friday and will be presented to the judge on Sunday night. They are suspected of counterfeiting, fraud and confiscation of trust.
The organizer disputes the facts that are being charged, his lawyer Peter Donne said.
It is believed that the trio provided false proof of payment to the festival vendor. The last moment was canceled by Mayor Lommel, who considered that insufficient security conditions had been met.
British partner of Dutch organizers of the Vestiville festival was released after he passed Hasselt's investigative judge, who pointed to the BBC on Sunday night.
"My client was solely responsible for managing the artist and he did it, categorically denying he does anything that could lead to fraud, which is why he needed a deeper investigation on Sunday, and finally his story was correct, "says Meyers.
The Vestiville Festival was canceled before Bourgmestre opened for Lomellu for security reasons. The event should host several popular hip-hop or artist artists, including Cardi B, Future, Migos, and Master Gims.
