Rue Ducale is one of the most prestigious streets in Brussels. It leads along the "Parc Royal". Tree avenues, neoclassical sculptures, in the center a large fountain.
Number 41 of this Rue Ducale is the headquarters of Fight Impunity - the NGO at the center of the biggest corruption scandal the European Parliament has ever known. The white house with its mullioned windows seems a bit lost between the impressive baroque villas, in which several embassies are based. The facade has cracks, the paint is peeling off here and there. But the view remains impressive: If the president of Fight Impunity looked out of the window, he could probably see the royal palace at the other end of the park.
