Belgian Police investigate witness death threats

And isn't this just the icing on the damn cake?

Belgian child sex abuse police probe death threats.

Police investigating claims of child abuse by Belgian clergy have told the BBC they are probing death threats against witnesses and magistrates...

...Jean Marc Meillure, a spokesman for the public prosecutors office, confirmed that an investigation was under way.

"There are some threats against certain people around the case, and the prosecutors office is investigating that," he told the BBC.

He said the threats had been made against people who gave the authorities information or made a complaint, or against some magistrates.

I wish the authorities over here and in Ireland would be as stringent as the Belgian Police. It looks to me like they've got them running scared over the whole thing, if they're now also having to investigate bloody death threats to the people involved.

UK and US authorities? Take a cue from the Belgian authorities and do the bloody job right.
