All rise for His Worship.



We believe we have demonstrated that

Pussy Palace is a brothel, Your Honour,

and that the defendant is its manager.

The prosecution requests a conviction

for inciting prostitution.

Prosecutor Versandt,

may l congratulate you?

The defendant hired the best solicitor,

but you have furnished proof

that leaves me no choice but to convict.

Then again, l've been doing this job

for 18 years now.

The court calls Officer Van Durmen.

There are five brothels within 200 m

of each other on Mechelsesteenweg.

Why did you only report

the Pussy Palace?

Who filed the report?

- Frankie.

Not Frankie De Groote, your superior?

Why did Frankie file a report?

Officer, you are under oath.

Frankie is friends with Jenny.

Jenny from 'Chez Jenny'?

- Defendant, sit down.

Mr Spaan?

- 'Chez Jenny' is a competitor.

lt's the brothel opposite my client's.

The source is irrelevant.

The evidence is conclusive.

We either convict all or none.

Everyone is equal under the law.

The court judges each case separately.

- Not my court.

There's no room in my court

for nepotism.

Officer Van Durmen, look at this file.

D'you have any idea how much this costs?

Get out of my court. Get out.

Come on. Go!

The court acquits the defendant.

lt's over.


Next time you bring a case like this

to an already overloaded court,

l'd like you to think carefully first.

l can't sleep.

- Come in.

Come on then.

Magda. Magda.

Can you pick lris up from school?

l've got a lot of work after court.

Fred and lrne are coming to play bridge

so that'll relax you. You're cooking.

Magda, come on. Come on, get up.

You're picking lris up and

doing the cooking. Come on, please.

Good morning, darling.

- Good morning.

Mum is a bit tired.

Come on, l'll make breakfast.

Go and sit at the table.

Why don't you take a shower?

OK, well, despite our strong case...


Fred, l would...

- One moment. Koen, please come in.

Excuse me.

- No problem.

This is Guido De Wolf, the new bailiff.

Koen Allegaerts,

president of the criminal court.

Pleased to meet you.

- l'm honoured.

This afternoon l'll serve

your writ in the Van Den Abele case.

l'm off now then.

lt was a pleasure.

A real asset. Ambitious, conscientious.

Fred, the prosecutor is driving me nuts.

Can't you do anything?

We're 50,000 cases behind.

Prosecutor Versandt is too finicky.

You two never got along.

Move to the Court of Appeal.

What am l going to do there?

l can be useful here.

Not at the Court of Appeal.

- Done?

OK. Bridge tonight? What time?

- As usual, at eight.

You can expect a bottle. lt's our

Wow! Congratulations.

K & M

Hi, princess.

Where's mum?

- She's still asleep.

Didn't she pick you up?

- No.

Have you eaten?

- Crisps.

That's not real food, lris.

l'll do you something, OK?





Honey, can you give Daddy a hand?

Elke will soon be here with her parents.

- ls Elke coming too?

Hi, lris.

Hi, Uncle Fred.

Hello, lris.

- Hi, Elke.

We're going to make a movie.

- Action.

But before we begin,

l've got a surprise.

For Koen and Magda.

Here you go, honey. Fifteen years.

Well done!

Well done to us.



lt's only champagne.

What's wrong?

- Mum, what's up?

lt's alright.

Magda, calm down. Calm down.


- lt's alright.

Go and lie down. Come on.

Easy, easy.

- Wait, hold on. Come on.

Hold her.

Call a doctor.

- No, an ambulance.

Go and phone!

Magda. Take it easy, honey.

Hello? An ambulance. Hurry.

The Allegaerts family in Duffel...
