The Flemish government is reclaiming corona subsidies for around 23,000 euros that were wrongly awarded to Point Urbain and Tokomat, two companies where Sihame El Kaouakibi and her partner Erika Xuan Nguyen held the title.
The house of cards around Sihame El Kaouakibi, the white rabbit that Open VLD won in Antwerp, continues to collapse. Article link https://www.news1.news/news/2021/02/flanders-is-reclaiming-corona-prevention-premiums-from-el-kaouakibi.html
The judicial investigation into possible fraud at the non-profit organizations and other companies of Flemish Member of Parliament Sihame El Kaouakibi (Open VLD) has been taken over by the Central Service for Combating Corruption (CDBC).
The court has reportedly also requested the images of the security cameras in the Hoogstraat, because there are suspicions that everything was dragged out from JJ House – which had found shelter in the former home of the painter Jacob Jordaens – just before the bankruptcy. .
The Antwerp court opened an investigation in the aftermath of the appointment of a provisional administrator at the vzw Let’s Go Urban, the youth project in Antwerp founded by El Kaouakibi. Some ex-directors feared after an audit that ‘financial malpractices’ were happening at the non-profit organization.

The judicial file has now been taken over by the Central Anti-Corruption Service (CDBC).
The Flemish government and the city of Antwerp are also conducting an investigation. They want to check whether the awarded subsidies have been used correctly.

The vzw Let’s Go Urban is said to have received annual subsidies from the city of Antwerp for around 150,000 euros. It also received 1 million euros for the construction of a building on the Kiel.
The Flemish government has already reclaimed the 14,040 euros in corona pollution premiums that were awarded to Point Urbain / JJ House. Those recoveries are disputed, but three applications for approximately EUR 12,000 in additional aid are already on hold.
In addition, the nuisance premium of almost 9,000 euros awarded to Tokomat, behind which El Kaouakibi and her partner Erika Xuan Nguyan are also hiding, will be reclaimed. That premium would have been wrongly awarded, because Tokomat would be a management company. This recovery is not disputed for the time being.
The Flemish nuisance bonus of almost 10,000 euros for the academy of Let’s Go Urban, the youth project of El Kaouakibi in Antwerp, is still under scrutiny. Article link https://www.news1.news/news/2021/02/flanders-is-reclaiming-corona-prevention-premiums-from-el-kaouakibi.html
The satellite companies Wannawork and Wannacatch are also being scrutinized. An application for a nuisance premium for Wannawork was refused, but Wannacatch was paid a premium of about 7,800 euros.
