I would say go to Belgium under Belgium law you can accuse a person living in other countries if that person has commited serious crimes i think this law passes some 3 years ago and people have used it in the past .if my memory is right last year some maids of a Saudy prince filed a case against ther master while they were on holiday there with their master.

Hi Will,
Thank you for your suggestion.
However, does such law applicable for non Belgians, and the Locus Delicti (place of crime) is outside Belgium?
