Accused....Basel Ghalyoun

A Syrian citizen, Basel Ghalyoun is charged with being a material author of the attacks and the prosecution asks for a total sentence of 38654 years for membership of a terrorist organisation, murder of 191 people, attempted murder of 1824, and criminal damage.

He is said to have maintained close contact with one of the group who blew themselves up in Leganés, Serhane Ben Abdelmajid (known as El Tunecino). It is also alleged that he was a friend of another of the accused, Fouad El Morabit Amghar, and of Rabei Osman El Sayed Ahmed. Ghalyoun was identified at one point by one of the people wounded on one of the trains, but a further identification process did not identify him.
