Former Belgacom CEO's children to continue lawsuit

Tuesday 12 April 2016 | 09:19 CET | News
The children of former Belgacom CEO Didier Bellens plan to continue his lawsuit against the Belgian operator, De Tijd and L'Echo reported. At the time of his death in February, Bellens still had a suit for wrongful dismissing pending against the company and the Belgian state, Belgacom's largest shareholder. Bellens' lawyer confirmed that his children will continue the case at the employment tribunal in Brussels. The former CEO claimed EUR 2.8 million in compensation for breaking the contract, equal to the amount of salary he would have earned if he had sat out his contract.
