Sihame El Kaouakibi still creates controversy in Flanders

It has been almost a year since the former Member of the Open VLD Sihame El Kaouakibi no longer set foot in the Flemish Parliament. She has been on official sick leave since October last year and therefore does not have to attend sessions to be entitled to her full salary, around 5,000 euros per month, numerous media reports from the north of the country reported on Thursday.

That sick leave expired on August 31, but was recently extended until the end of November, according to the Office of Speaker of Parliament Liesbeth Homans. Enough to raise many in the Flemish political ranks but also within the population.
