The number of non-Belgian detainees in Belgian prisons quadrupled in the period 1980-2010, going from 1,212 to 4,494, it emerges from a study carried out by Steven De Ridder and Kristel Beyens of the Vrije Universiteit van Brussel (VUB) and whose results were published in Panopticon, a journal specialised in penal law. The increase in the number of Belgian prisoners is no greater than 35%, that is 5,999 detainees in 2010 for 4,459 in 1980.

The share of foreigners has remained stable since 1995, fluctuating just above 40% (40.6% in 2009). The largest group of non-Belgian detainees consists of North Africans and Turks and has continually increased from 1993 to 2009, going from 1,254 to 1,957.

This same group represented 43.6% of non-Belgian detainees in 2009.

I think most attorneys can agree that trying to explain the doctrine of fair use can be about as confusingly .
