Family: Henri d'Udekem convicted for fraud

The uncle of Queen Mathilde, Count Henri d'Udekem d'Acoz has been given a six-month suspended prison sentence and a fine after having been found guilty of defrauding a man from Ingelmunster. Count d'Udekem d'Acoz has lodged an appeal.


Count d'Udekem d'Acoz’s barrister Herman Baron says that his client had been too gullible and that the Count had been a victim of deception himself.

In 2007 the man from Ingelmunster had wanted to turn some agricultural land into building plots. He enlisted the assistance of Count d'Udekem d'Acoz who is also a solicitor.

The request for a change of status of the land from agricultural to building land was already been dealt with by the relevant authorities. However, Count d'Udekem d'Acoz, a former mayor of the town of Poperinge, was to have helped things along together with the two other people that were also tried.

82-year-old Count d'Udekem d'Acoz and the was not in court.
