Fakir was named sysop in the nfo for Wired Invitation (september 1996) - suggesting the bbs was reopened with a new sysop after the information below.

Sudonull.com reported here the following; "On May 22, 1996, Novell’s anti-piracy branch covered Belgium’s largest illegal BBS, codenamed 'GENESIS'. She was run from his office in Brussels by a certain Jean Louis Piret. An agreement was reached on the payment of a 6-digit compensation amount (which is unfortunately not indicated), with the confiscation of all equipment ($ 35,000). Specially trained people from Novell (they call them Technical Investigators - Technical Investigators) undercover penetrated a BBS-ku Genesis. Having obtained the required evidence, they received a search warrant from a Belgian court. The search revealed that the equipment allowed storing over 13 gigabytes of information. Piret himself admits that he kept about 40 thousand programs. They were available for download on 10 telephone lines for people from all over the world."
