    Ton avocat dois prendre contact avec La poste Francaise, le paquet a été le 29 mars en france, le 5 avril retourner a Belgique, raison?
    regarde le parcours en annex, normalement le paquet dois être deja longtemps retourner chez moi, il est a Gent(Belgique). J'ai deja réclamer. Je sais bien que ce n'est pas ta faut, mais la mien non plus, patience svp, l'avocat est plus cher que l'achat, et fait mal a la tete.
