Place of Birth: Antwerpen, Belgium;
Hicham Chaib was one of the leaders of the terrorist group Sharia4Belgium. For he was the bodyguard and right hand of the organization’s founder, Fouad Belkacem.
Chaib was also a Hisbah officer in ar-Raqqah (although not the highest one). But, he was fired because he was too extreme and abusive, after which Chaib started working as a logistician for the Purchasing Department.
In 2012, he was leading a riot against police officers in an Antwerpen district, a fact for which he was condemned by default to a one-year sentence.
In 2013, he left Belgium for Syria with a dozen other Sharia4Belgium partisans in order to fight alongside the Islamic State (ISIS). Hicham Chaib would have then been head of the religious police in Raqqa, an important post within the terrorist organization. He appears on several Islamic State propaganda videos, in which he calls Muslims to join the caliphate.
On 11 February 2015, he was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment, with immediate arrest at the closure of the trial against Sharia4Belgium.
In 2016, he who calls himself Abu Hanifa, appears in the video claiming responsibility for the Islamic State attacks in Zaventem and Maelbeek, at the end of which he executes a prisoner.
Hicham Chaib had already been declared as dead in February 2017, following bombings on Raqqa. His family had then refuted this information.
