The cyclist, who had knocked down a little girl in the Fens on December 25 by hitting her with the knee, is claiming damage up to the amount of his bike, the Belga agency learned Thursday from his lawyer, Me Culot.
“My client’s goal is not to make money. He wants to make people aware that you cannot do just anything on social networks. The consequences are dramatic for my client who has not been able to get back on his two-wheeler since this story, ”said the lawyer. The cyclist had initiated civil proceedings against the girl’s dad, who had filmed the scene.
The civil court hearing on Thursday aimed to set the timetable for the pleadings.
