Mohamed Abrini acting as informant for British authorities

Terror suspect Mohamed Abrini is now acting as an informant for the British authorities, as part of a deal made between Belgium and Britain to share information about IS sympathisers.

Abrini, known as “the man in the hat,” is suspected of having been heavily involved in the Paris and Brussels attacks, and is facing terrorism charges in Belgium.

In his new “role”, Abrini is notifying the British authorities of potential terror recruits on their soil, according to the Sunday Times.

Last week, a Belgian judge denied Abrini the possibility of avoiding extradition to France.
