Archives Etienne Woestyn, director-general of the Direction of (Supplies) Control Services

Etienne Woestyn held the office of director-general of control services during the occupation. After the war, he was sentenced to six months in prison for denunciation. He was also accused of having provided a list to the Ministry of Labour of people who refused to work and of having denounced printer Gaston Navez who supplied paper to the resistance. Most documents of the archives are about the repression case against Woestyn.
