The Eurocrats and Marc Dutroux III: Satanic Signs

“In the course of her testimony, Gini talked about snuff movies, the murder of children and even hunting parties during which naked children ran in a park and were shot with crossbows. She said that she had learnt what drove these clients to such extremes: a sort of addiction to power, the power to decide over pain, life and death. She spoke of businessmen, politicians – some of them well-known, others less so – magistrates, doctors and men with families. XI got to know a series of children who, like her, had been part of the network for years.”

– Regina Louf, child rape/ritual abuse victim


Early in the trial the lead lawyer for the defence Xavier Magnee said that his client, Marc Dutroux, could not have acted alone in the abductions, rape and murders of several girls stating: “Can people make you believe that there wasn’t a paedophile ring? Would we be the only country in the world where paedophiles are isolated perverts?” [1]

This is exactly what sections of the mainstream media and our governments the world over would have us believe.

He also raised the possibility of occult ritual abuse – most notably forms of satanism – as another factor to be taken into account for an already thoroughly bewildered jury. They had heard testimony involving rape, abuse, torture, murder, blackmail, and a child-sex mafia, with an array of disappearing witnesses and judges. They were probably expecting satanic worship to arrive at some point along the way – and here it was. [2]  This was one trial where the jurors could be forgiven for being more than a little nervous about their civic duty.

Magnee mentioned that traces of DNA of several unknown people has been found at Dutroux’s underground “dungeon” and that information found at the murdered accomplice Bernard Weinstein’s home suggested a link with college of Black Magick called the  Abrasax Institute led by “high priestess” Dominique Kindermans. The location of the organization was in a village near Charleroi, with the building itself serving as the offices of a number of pagan organisations, including the Belgian Church of Satan and the Luciferian Initiation Order.

In early January 1997, a Flemish newspaper reported three policemen (and possibly a fourth) of the Charleroi municipal force had admitted to being members of Abrasax, though they claimed it was all quite harmless. According to Peter Conradi, reporting for The Times, “five witnesses described black masses [there] at which children were killed in front of audiences said to have included prominent members of Belgian society.” [3] One report referred to a letter found in the house of accomplice Weinstein which referred to a group and the need to continue to procure ‘presents’ – in the form of human beings – for the High Priestess of the Order. [4] The media were asked to withhold this information for many months.

A raid resulted in the seizure of hundreds of videotapes, racks of computer discs, two human skulls and jars of animal blood. Mindful of the allegations that some babies were sold to the group by their parents while others were abducted, more than 100 investigators searched the building for eight hours. No evidence was found of any wrong doing or indications that children were being kidnapped for ritual sacrifice, though this line of inquiry received considerable coverage in the Belgium press. Nonetheless, an eight hour search means very little if such an organisation had been forewarned months before.

abraxas

The demon “Abraxas”

Much of the Belgian public was said to have been under the spell of “satanic panic” stemming from a understandable belief that a satanic network of ritual abuse exists within the European Establishment. The business of abuse may serve deeply rooted and extensive networks, very different from the idea of a few wannabe magicians getting high on rituals and decapitating animals. Occult ritual abuse takes place, but as witness testimony will show, it may also act as a deterrent for victims speaking out against their abusers. Indeed, allegations of a massive cover-up refuse to go away.

Over the seven year period until Dutroux’s trial finally began, eleven people came forward to tell their story of abuse at the hands of Belgium’s child rape rings. In 1996, as the investigation got underway, five women and a transvestite testified anonymously under the code-name ‘“X1, X2, X3 and X4” describing an underworld of pornography, snuff movies, sadomasochist torture, bestiality and murder that magistrates and senior police either found either too difficult to comprehend or were forced to cover up.

Henry Kissinger’s good friend and one time European Commissioner Viscount Etienne Davignon and Bilderberg Grp attendee Count Maurice Lippens were alleged to have participated in extreme forms of murder and child abuse at the Cromwel hotel in Knokke. According to witness X2’s notes, parties took place with underage girls in the hotel where: “… Delvoie – Karel – X2 – Lippens – Van Gheluwe – Etienne Davignon,” were present. He wrote further: “The girls knew where to go and with whom. Lippens hits the little girls. Several meetings between Karel and Davignon in the Memling hotel with the two Lippens.” [5]

Pillars of the fascist underground in the 1960s and Ex-Prime Minister of Belgium Paul Vanden Boeynants, and Baron Benoit de Bonvoisin, Prince Alexandre of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha were also named by X witnesses as abusing children within these networks.  The following extracts from a summary of the testimonies of witness X3 describes the horrors to which participants subjected their victims. (Be advised the following extract is graphic):

“The children were taken to a tower made of natural stone and with a wooden door… In the cellars there were cells where the children were locked up, awaiting their turn. There also were some cells for the dogs (dobermans). The passageway gave way to a room of spectacle. In the tower: dead children’s bodies in various stages of decomposition (sometimes dismembered and/or missing body parts) and carcasses of dogs. “Spectators: always the same but difficult to identify – about fifty. She recognized the regent Charles, King Baudouin and King Albert, and two others that she calls Charly [De Pauw] and Polo [Paul Vanden Boeynants]. She thinks to have recognized Willy Claes [later NATO secretary general] and doctor Vanden Eynde. The dogs listen to Ralf and Walter. The addicted dogs are excited. Spectacles = orgies, putting to death children and dogs… Gilles (12 years old??) was castrated by Polo. The other children have to drink the blood … Girls are slashed with razor blades. The lips of the vagina of X3 have partially been cut and were given to eat to the dogs… A girl’s [large] vulva was cut into slices and fed to the dogs… “At the end of another evening a child… had been castrated. The other children that were present buried the boy in a flowerbed. She remembers a child who had been decapitated, then cut and fried before being eaten. She remembers children who hung on hooks in the kitchen.” [6]

The most compelling evidence came from Regina Louf, originally known only as “X1,”who came forward after Judge Connerotte appealed for victims of paedophiles to tell them what they knew. Like the other witnesses, she told police of child sex parties involving judges, politicians, bankers and assorted figures in high society including members of the Belgian royal family. But her testimony was rejected as delusional due, officially, to the extreme nature of the crimes that were described in her first-hand accounts. However, the incredible detail and accuracy of her claims were difficult to ignore. Louf’s stories were checked and key elements were verified by police, often in extraordinary detail. They found at least one murder that Louf said she had witnessed that matched the unsolved murder of Christine Van Hees in 1984. [7]

If even a quarter of her accounts were true, then it placed Dutroux and Nihoul, together at the scene of similar crimes 10 years before the recorded history of abductions. [8] What was more revealing was the confirmation that many Establishment figures were involved in a well-organized network designed to procure children from all over the world.

Four cases were reopened as a result of Regina Louf’s testimony, though they would ultimately be closed once again: Veronique Dubrulle, Carine Dellaert and Katrien de Cuyper and 16 year old Christine Van Hees. The latter girl’s body was found tied up in a disused mushroom factory. She had been raped several times, tortured doused with petrol and set alight. Louf described the scene, witnesses and perpetrators of the  murder (Dutroux, Nihoul, Jean-Claude Van Espen among others) all in perfect detail. Still, she was described as a “fantasist” by the Anne Thily, Prosecutor General of Liège. See:‘Belgium’s Heart of Darkness’ The Guardian, 2002.


In an interview given in 1998 to reporters Annemie Bulté and Douglas de Coninck Louf gave support to the hypothesis that Satanism could act as a theatrical form of mind control that served to disorientate and confuse the victims so that they doubted their own powers of recollection and objective recall. This does not preclude the presence of satanic networks that are far removed from the description that follows, but supports the historical veracity of organized Elite power and their many methods of self-protection starting with the natural buffering of the lower tiers.

Louf described the mechanics involved:

XI: “An amusing subject at last! (She poses as a governess). Alright then, Satanism. Put yourself in the torturers’ shoes. When they received new victims into their network, it was extremely important that they shouldn’t speak to anyone about what had happened to them. That’s why they organized ceremonies. They took the victim to a heavily guarded house and convinced her that it was her party.

There would then be a great performance with masks, candles, inverted crosses, swords and animals. Rabbits were disembowelled, the blood was poured on naked girls, and some men and women worshipped the devil. We, the experienced girls, were doubled up with laughter when we saw them busy with their carnival masks.

They’ve got their vampire costumes on again, we would say. I don’t think the torturers got much pleasure out of it. They preferred to be completely naked rather than going round in latex costumes. The only aim of these rituals was to totally disorient the victims. They plagued these kids with a load of nonsense – Now you are the wife of Satan… and also gave them coke, LSD or heroin.

I can assure you that after that you feel completely outside the real world. That was the aim that the victim herself should begin to doubt the fact that all this had really happened. The result was that the victims didn’t dare speak to anyone.” [9]

In 2000, following years of ridicule and hostility from the press and Establishment, Ms. Louf gave a speech before the UN Committee on Human Rights in Geneva on behalf of The Non-Violent Radical Party a Non-Governmental peace movement which took on her case and supported her cause. [10] This speech was received just before the UN’s own sex abuse scandals erupted into full public view. Consequently, it must be viewed as one of the most prescient lectures ever given to an audience of “movers, shakers and abusers” on behalf of the victims that likely harboured many of the predators to whom Louf was referring. (See below for speech).

Curiously, according to parents of Melissa Russo, no new evidence was added to the Dutroux file as soon as witnesses began to come forward. Even today, 26 people still remain unidentified after being linked to 5,000 hairs found in Dutroux’s dank cellar. [11] This was also during the time when Judge Connerotte was sacked and most telling of all, when a special team of police officers led by top National Gendarmerie officer Patriek De Baets were assigned to interview Regina Louf and other “X” witnesses leading to their eventual dismissal. This was due to allegations of evidence manipulation which the authorities believed was intended to make Louf a more credible witness. The police in question strongly denied this, nor has any proof to these allegations come to light. [12]

After two separate internal inquires coming to a close in June 26, 2000 they were cleared of every charge concerning the manipulation of Louf’s testimony. Although now formerly exonerated but with his career in ruins, the former Chief of Police Patriek De Baets is still coping with a barrage of accusations for which he has no explanation.

Despite a group of independent psychologists affirming that Louf was of sound mind and that much of her account can be proven, the Prosecutor General of Liège, Anne Thilly was wheeled out to counteract the possibility that Louf would stand trial. Sure enough, the judges refused to call her to the witness stand making sure her testimony would not be heard at any future trial. On a par with the propaganda level that America’s Murdoch-owned Fox News attains so frequently, the government-owned TV station RTBF began a campaign designed to discredit Regina Louf after her name was leaked to the media. Not only did RTBF attack Louf’s credibility but set out to instil in the minds of the angry Belgian public that Dutroux was an “isolated pervert” that there was no network, that Jean Michel Nihoul – of all people – was innocent. Louf became a liar in the popular press and her reputation remains in tatters to this day, even though the facts she and other witnesses described stand up to intense scrutiny.

Regina Louf’s speech before the UN Committee on Human Rights in Geneva – 12.04.2000


My name is Regina Louf and I speak on behalf of the Transnational Radical Party First of all I would like to thank the special reporteur Ms Ofelia Calceta-Santos for her fine report that reflects for the first time some aspects of forced child prostitution in Belgium and The Netherlands.

We have the right not to be believed as we talk about sexual abuse, in group and organised in Europe.

We have the right to see how the press, politicians and our justice system laughs about our testimony. How they twist our words and make our testimony ridiculous. We have the right to see how the lawyers of the abusers are assisted by incompetent judges, burned out police officers and psychiatrists who just like to prove that children are easily lying.

We have the right to be silent and to be happy because we – the children of Europe – have food and education. The abuse and terror, neglecting and sexual abuse is hidden well behind the walls of our homes and our country.

We have the right to realise, although we have testified, our abusers can live again in our home, our street or neighbourhood. They are not punished because they are intelligent, successful adults and we are treated as children with an overdose of imagination.

We have the right to see our pornographic photographs, taken by our abusers, published on the internet, all around the world, without a proper system to punish the ones who put it there – because the governments of Europe neglect the problem.

We have the right to laugh and look normal, because otherwise the abusers torture our sister, friends or animals. If we alarm somebody, so they say, we will be responsible for their torture and punishment. So we believe them, because we experienced the reality of their threats.

We have the right to suffer invisibly and isolated in a war that only exists in the Philippines – where child prostitution is wide on the open.

According to our politicians and justice system child prostitution is not visible – so not existing at all.

We have the right to have no rights at all, because we have to survive under the threat of our intelligent and well adapted abusers – and if we have the courage to speak, no one helps us to protect us from our abusers.

We have the right not to be heard by the judges in a courtroom. Children have no voice at all in our justice system.

We have the right to feel guilty, because we didn’t have the power to help other victims. They – from generation to generation – have no voice in the western society. Only the normal children, supported by their normal family have the chance to speak out and are shown to the world.

We have the right to be confronted with little mistakes we made, like the colour of the car we were drove by night, when we get to a sex party. If we make one mistake, the police, judges and lawyers found our testimony worthless.

We have the right to see the abusers can start all over again, how they are re-honoured or get free therapy – while we have to suffer and pay our therapy without any chance for recognition.

We have the right to be treated with no respect for ourselves, our testimony and our trauma’s, just like the way our judges and politicians treat child abuse, pornography and prostitution, as non-existing, wild story’s.

Urban legends. These are the rights that children of sex rings get in Belgium and Europe. Sometimes we see our abusers on television, just denying the fact that they abuse children in any way. Sometimes we see and prove our police officers even falsify our testimony to show that sex rings don’t exist and survivors only want attention.

Fact: one in eight girls is sexually abused – one in ten boys is sexually abused. And even when my pimp admitted to the police his crimes against me – during the age of twelve till sixteen – one justice officer told the press in my country that I was the one to blame: Because I had at twelve years old, almost a full grown and female body – and I was in love with the man who prostituted me.

My testimony is now used in Belgium to repress all other victims of organised child abuse.

Thank you Mister Chairman.

 


 

Notes
[1] ‘Defence raise satanic cult’ News24, March 03, 2004.
[2] From the historical evidence regarding satanic abuse it appears to operate in terms of the tried and tested method of pyramidal control, much like any corporate system of hierarchical productivity. On the lower tiers are the ritualistic pop-culture manifestations for the masses. These occultists are used to act as a supply of pasties to take the heat from the core networks operating at a much higher deeper levels of the military-Industrial complex; a core stratum of institutionalised abuse which is protected by every possible avenue of leakage. As such, Satanism is a highly useful method of obfuscation and distortion. When proven cases of satanic abuse have occurred, they have often been independent groupings separated from any organized and systematic rings. There are also those branches which have sprouted from the more formalised crime ring or network of porn, prostitution, and sexual slavery, which in turn have connections to the high-level elitist and generational groupings of satanic worship under a variety of tastes and flavours. However, our perceptions of Satanism as fed to us by the popular press has largely acted as a smokescreen, creating deflections from the true sources of a very real brand of Existential Satanic ritual that is far more sophisticated and without the parlour games and pantomime costumes so enamoured of the lower tiers.

The Eurocrats and Marc Dutroux II: A Judge, A King, a Psychopath and his Lover

“The truth is that those journalists who tell the story complain that they have been harassed, sacked, threatened and many say they have been forced to stop reporting on this issue to continue working.’ As one senior Belgian said to me citing these examples ‘You must not underestimate how bad Belgian justice is.’” 

– BBC Journalist, Olenka Frenkiel


On June 17, 2004, Marc Dutroux, a long-standing criminal and low-level police informant, was given a life sentence for supposedly “leading a gang” that kidnapped and raped six girls in the mid-1990s, resulting in the deaths of four. His links to a sex and crime ring led to other arrests including his wife Michelle Martin an elementary school teacher who was sentenced to 30 years in prison for kidnapping and rape (though she has since been paroled after serving 16 years). Co-accused Michel Lelièvre a petty thief and drug addict received 25 years for kidnapping and drug-dealing. Jean Michel Nihoul however, known for his penchant for organising orgies at a local chateau with high society links and a long history of assorted criminality, was jailed for only five years for drug-dealing and several counts of fraud. His lover, Marleen De Cockere was also arrested and charged with conspiracy.

After an enormous public out-cry over the murders, Belgium’s Prime Minister Jean-Luc Dehaene finally began to make the right noises. All of a sudden, the government professed its dedication to the cause of reform in the justice and police systems, particularly regarding parole criteria for those convicted of child sex offences after decades of denial and disinterest. The Royalty, most notably King Albert, conveniently jumped on the bandwagon and vocally called for further immediate reforms. However, in 2001 the publication of The Paedophile Dossierthe Scandal of the Dutroux Case [1] gave the Brussels palace virtual apoplexy regarding what they viewed as “grotesque” deformations against the unblemished character of the king. The next Belgian Prime Minister, Guy Verhofstadt, described it as “an unacceptable assault on the dignity of our nation and its people.” [2]

Marc Dutroux

The book suggested that Albert attended sex parties in the 1970s and 1980s where children were routinely abused. The Luxembourg-based investigative journalist Jean Nicolas, who co-authored the book, said he made no accusations against King Albert, but merely published legal documents written by a Belgian judge. However, the palace grievances were upheld in the Belgian courts and a formal denial was to be included in all future copies. Nevertheless, Albert had a record that was not the cleanest public image for a King, though sadly common place for historical royalty who remain above the law.

In the 1970s, then still the Crown Prince, he was implicated in a sex affair involving the bribery of Saudi officials. The Belgian government also sought to have their own addendum regarding the handling of the affair but the judge reminded them that this was political issue, thus did not come under the court’s jurisdiction (which is bizarre in itself). However, at this late stage it was a case of too little far too late, especially when the rumours of institutionalised sexual abuse and a wider network of child rape had still not been satisfactorily investigated.

The conclusion of Dutroux’s eight year trial was preceeded by numerous postponements, delays and suspicious stone-walling. There was also evidence of extraordinary negligence from the police and government officials involved in the investigation, several police officers having been detained and questioned over the scandal. Resignations and dismissals followed, as well as one of the largest peacetime demonstrations ever seen by the Belgian public, furious at what they considered to be, at best, ineptitude and at worst, a cover-up which extended right to the heart of Belgian royalty.

The reason that the trial was said to have taken so long was due to the persistent rumours that a child sex ring was in operation and the investigations that followed. In fact, the exact opposite was the case. No such investigations took place and the length of the trial was largely due to the obstructions and delays from police and justice officials. In the final month, Dutroux’s lawyer “sensationally called for the suspension of the trial to give investigators time to confirm the existence of such a child sex ring.” [3]

After a few days, the request was rejected by the judge and the verdict was handed down on the June 17, 2004.

Not one week after the sentencing of Dutroux a French forestry worker, Michel Fourniret, confessed to killing six girls in Belgium and France from 1987 to 2001, suggesting yet more evidence of police ineptitude or purposeful apathy regarding child abduction. [4] Only several months after the arrest of Dutroux was yet another child molester found after the discovery of the body of Loubna Benaissa, who was 9 when she disappeared in August 1992. She was found in a trunk in the basement of one Patrick Derochette who was charged with murder along with three members of his family. [5]

Just what was going on in the heart of Belgium?

Marc Dutroux – from petty criminal to procurer of children

Having settled with his family in the Belgian province of Charleroi and unable to obtain work, Marc Dutroux, gradually sank into petty crime making a mediocre living from trading stolen cars in Poland and Slovakia. He graduated to selling young girls into prostitution throughout Europe beginning in the late eighties and early nineties. As he began to explore and exercise his criminal tendencies, Dutroux was arrested in 1989 for the rape and abuse of five young girls. Nevertheless, his luck was in and as a product of Belgium’s curious laws which were more than flexible regarding child abuse at the time, he and many convicted paedophiles were able to walk free by 1992. The law only tightened up when the full scale of the death and abuse came to light upon his arrest in 1996. By then, many girls had gone missing in the vicinity of Dutroux’s two homes.

The magnitude of the “incompetence” of police investigation into the crimes slowly became known over the seven year period from his arrest to his sentence. These included warnings to the police from Dutroux’s own mother regarding possible kidnapping of girls in one of her son’s houses, to overlooking basic police investigative protocol by ignoring informants’ information which later proved accurate and which led to the loss of vital clues. Finally, an eyewitness managed to record the number plate of a suspicious car in the area where the girls went missing and Marc Dutroux was arrested on August 15 1996 and subsequently charged with the murder of four girls.

timecov

Julie LeJeune and Melissa Russo on the cover of Time Magazine

Two girls, Laetitia Delhez, aged 12, and Sabine Dardenne, aged 14 were found alive but the others were not so lucky. Tales of torture, rape, pornographic filming and a general litany of sexual abuse took place in a secret dungeon in the basement of one of Dutroux’s houses. Julie Lejeune and Melissa Russo were two other eight year old victims who were plucked off the street, in June of 1995 drugged, repeatedly raped and subsequently allowed to starve to death. According to Dutroux, his accomplice in the kidnappings, Bernard Weinstein forgot to feed the children while he was incarcerated for another crime involving car theft. He later confessed to killing Weinstein in a fit of rage by drugging and burying him alive next to the bodies of Russo and Lejeune. The police refused to hunt for the girls at the time even though Dutroux was known as a prime suspect. Nor did they search Dutroux’s house for five months. When a search was finally organized, they found nothing, despite reports of children’s voices in the cellar.

Further known victims were An Marchal, aged 19, and Eefje Lambreks, aged 17, who were found at another house owned by Dutroux, several weeks after the discovery of Russo and Lejeune. Dutroux and accomplice Michel Lelievre admitted kidnapping two other girls who had gone missing at a Belgian resort in Ostend one year earlier.

The general resistance and clear obstruction of the authorities extended over several years until the Belgian public were convinced that a massive operation had been in place to protect politicians and officials in high places who had been connected to the child sexual abuse ring. They also believed that the government, police and courts were all involved in the cover-up.

Dutroux was dubbed a “perfect psychopath.” He revelled in the media circus and the audience attention in court and frequently displayed self-pity ploys and almost comical delusions of grandeur so typical of psychopathy. Dutroux stated he was not a paedophile as commonly believed and experts agreed with him: ‘The age of the victims did not seem to arouse in him any given effect or to play a particular role, beyond allowing him to kidnap them, to manipulate them, to confine them,’ said the report. What Dutroux relished was total power over people … Dutroux himself cited the injustice of being denied ice creams at the beach as evidence of emotional privation …” [6]

240215-300-206-scaleThis gave credence to his insistence that he was not in it for reasons of paedophilia but rather as a psychopathic opportunist, seeking power over others and the resulting gratification and kudos that went with it.  Rape of his victims and the murder of his partner he admitted to, but was he guilty of the specific accusations levelled at him?  According to comments reported by Flemish-language television station VTM, Dutroux had claimed in a secret interview in his cell that he “…was in regular contact with people belonging to that network. But the justice system doesn’t want to investigate this lead.” And further: “People want to believe that I am at the centre of everything. They are mistaken,”… I did things of which I was not the driving force. I was used as an instrument by others, who were themselves used as instruments by others.” [7]

The official position in most of the Belgian press, police and the government regarding the inordinate length of time to bring Dutroux to trial was due to the “conspiracy theories” which forced investigators to search for child rape networks which they claim, didn’t exist. But parents of the victims and much of the shocked Belgian public who were watching very closely knew this was far from the truth. In fact, a proper investigation was obstructed at every turn.

After the trial revealed unforgivable incompetence from police and the criminal Justice system in general, it begs the question was this “bungling” purposeful? Was it designed to delay and give time to paper over the cracks in the alleged network beyond Charleroi and Belgium as so many believed?  Dutroux had even claimed that two police officers had helped Lelievre and himself to kidnap Marchal, and Lambreks who were later raped and murdered. The common knowledge that several government officials, police officers, and a former European Commissioner frequently attended Nihoul’s orgies at Neufchâteau chateau gave further credibility to the idea that the accused was not acting alone.

According to journalist Yves Desmet who later appeared on television with Paul Marchall the father of victim An Marchall, the “… incompetence of the police investigation was staggering. When an associate of Dutroux actually went to them and told them all about this place – the fact there was a dungeon and exactly what Dutroux intended to do there – they did absolutely nothing.” [8] When the police finally knocked on Dutroux’s door years later and heard the sounds of children calling, still no questions were asked.

The emergence of suspicion and the intense distrust from the Belgian public closely following the trial and arrest continued to boil in the background. What made matters worse was the fact that the presiding Judge Van Espen was found to have had a business relationship with key suspect in the crimes Jean Michel Nihoul and his wife. It was only when this connection was discovered by a Belgian journalist that the Judge reluctantly thought to excuse himself. This serious conflict of interest was apparently no cause for concern. Prior to his resignation he had ordered the police to stay away from the case, as well as presiding over endless delays, blocks and buried evidence.

J-Connerotte

Judge Jean-Marc Connerotte, 2004

Judge Jean-Marc Connerotte became the replacement. Here was a judge who was highly knowledgeable on Dutroux and his criminal history having personally gathered a great deal of evidence on the accused and his connection to the child rape ring. More importantly for the public confidence, the Judge had also personally rescued two of the girls from the dungeon under Dutroux’s home. Known for his integrity and competence Connerotte appeared to be the perfect candidate for the position. Nonetheless, he was eventually dismissed from the case, the official reason was a perceived conflict in the Judge’s ability to be impartial due to his attendance at a fund raising dinner in aid of missing children. This flimsy reasoning was seen by many as a desperate bid to get rid of a highly capable and dedicated Judge in order that investigations didn’t go too far into a considerable den of crime and corruption and which would further rock the foundations of an already compromised Belgian government.

From the nature of the daily threats he had to endure, it was inevitable that Connerotte would never have completed his time on the case. Prior to his removal, Connerotte said he had become “the object and the victim of a campaign of defamation and misinformation at the hands of certain sectors of the media,” due primarily to the fact that he had handled two files: “Titres” [or stolen goods] and “Cools” [referring to Andre Cools Belgian politician assassinated in 1991]. He had been charged with the task of investigating “certain persons and certain criminal activities that seem[ed] to benefit from high-level protection.” [9] *

As a formal complaint regarding his treatment, he sent a letter to King Albert II in 1996 detailing the corruption within the Belgium justice system and its institutional subservience to a criminal underworld or mafia. He singled out for particular attention one Detective Superintendent R. Brose in Liège, “the very man responsible for the Cools unit …” for which the Magistrate was working and which therefore, led to the realization that the Liège CID, far from working with him to bring those responsible to justice, were in fact, seeking to undermine his position. His role thus became untenable, where no progress could reasonably be made due to a “Judiciary dysfunction” which turned into a: “… veritable ‘institution’ whose smooth running assures the legitimacy of certain criminal activities and the impunity of those responsible.”

Judge Connerotte continued in his letter:

“This institution seems to acquire its authority and supremacy over sectors of the justice system by relying on a complex and secret modus operandi, that of the appropriation of certain key circuits of our institutions created and regulated by the Law. It is a matter essentially of political, financial, police, and media circuits. This mafia-style criminal phenomenon is evidently not peculiar to Belgium, but it involves particular manifestations that are well suited to this small country. We can imagine the obstacles that a judiciary inquiry will meet when investigating such facts: numerous taboos, problems of mentality, and a lack of cultural reference on the issue in order to be able to become aware of or deal with such criminal phenomena, taking advantage in Belgium of official reticence in terms of their acknowledgement, which favours or supports their occultation.

The function of a criminal system of this sort is obviously to serve its fundamental purpose, the pursuance of particularly profitable illicit activities, such as money-laundering, and to protect the ‘legitimacy’ of its activities and the impunity of its agents. This indispensable function corresponds to the motive of criminal protection that assures the permanency of the incriminated system by means of the infiltration of the certain circuits of our institutions, especially the police force, a veritable ‘knot’ which my whole investigation has come up against.

This description comes as close as you will find as to the nature of much of the European law, judiciary and police which is enmeshed in a criminal underworld. In the letter, Connerotte was particularly scathing of the Belgian media which seemed to be working in concert with Liège CID using “simplistic images verging on caricature, and to present the Neufchâteau investigators and magistrates as incompetent, grotesque and dishonest figures following an improbable trail on the basis of an empty file… the cruder it is, the better it works.” If indeed a child-sex mafia was targeting a respected Judge this more than lent credence to Dutroux’s insistence that the same forces were in control. Connerotte testified that the investigation was seriously hampered by protection of suspects by people in the government. “Rarely … has so much energy been spent opposing an inquiry.”

When the judge was allowed to testify in March 2004 The Telegraph reported that he described: “… the bullet-proof vehicles and armed guards needed to protect him against the shadowy figures determined to stop the full truth coming out. Never before in Belgium has an investigating judge at the service of the kind been subjected to such pressure. We were told by police that [murder] contracts had been taken out against the magistrates.” [11]

Long before the trial began on March 1st, 2004, in the town of Arlon, Dutroux had told the media that he was just a pawn in a network of paedophiles and Michel Nihoul was the brains behind the network. Even the prosecutor, Michel Bourlet, agreed that it was likely Dutroux was not an “isolated predator” and that both he, Nihoul, Lelievre and Michelle Martin were part of a network. However, he fell short of implying that the network extended beyond the confines of the group itself and into a mafia-controlled child porn network with ties to the European and American Establishment even though the rumours had been circulating since the arrest of Dutroux seven years before.

 


* In July 18, 1991, Belgian politician André Cools who had been investigating the murder of arms dealer Gerald Bull a year earlier became the next high profile assassination. Two Tunisian men who carried out the murder were thought to have been employed by a Gladio group which in turn led back to the CIA and MOSSAD. André Cools had not only met and interviewed MOSSAD agent and corporate big-wig Shaul Eisenberg as part of his investigations into the case, but the Iraqi banker Abdullah Zilka. Foolishly, he announced that he would shortly be providing evidence on Belgian, Canadian and American corruption in the arms industry, the latter of which extended to some very elevated names within the British arms industry and the Bush Administration including Dick Cheney, Neil Bush, Donald Rumsfeld and certainly the elusive and enigmatic Frank Carlucci. His interviews with the two men were never published. Jean-Marc Connerotte, the Belgian judge presiding over the murder case issued arrest warrants for mafia bosses connected to Toto Riina, the head of the Italian mafia. He soon found himself dismissed from the Cools murder case before he could issue indictments on leading politicians. His removal was to be repeated several years later in the Dutroux case, when another similar list of high-profile names would appear, only to disappear into the night from whence they came. Alain Van der Biest, and a one-time political ally of Andre Cools and a shareholder in Poudrieres Reunies de Belgique, along with several associates, was accused of the murder by an anonymous informer. By March 2002, while waiting to hear if he would go on trial in connection with the murder, Van der Biest was found dead from a “drug overdose” and with a suicide letter to his wife. In October 2003 only five of the nine accused stood trial, the others choosing to remain in various countries in Europe rather than to take the rap. It is not hard to see why.

Finally, by January 2004 two had been acquitted and six men sentenced to 20 years in prison. They included his former aide, Richard Taxquet, chauffeur Giuseppe di Mauro, and two men tried in their absence, Cosimo Solazzo, Domenico Castellino. A “former aide” and his “chauffeur” with Italian mafia connections. Hardly a resounding victory.

André Cool’s murder had thrown the Walloon socialist party into chaos and the subsequent investigation revealed not only several minor league sexual scandals but the payment of more than £2 Billion in bribes made by French aerospace manufacturer Dassault and Italian helicopter firm Agusta to secure equipment orders from the Belgian armed forces, via socialist politicians. This bought down the Belgian Secretary-General to NATO and certainly put the spotlight on Belgian weapons manufacturing and the vested interests involved. But has anything changed? As in the Dutroux case, those on the outer ring of corruption took the rap and those who had a little more pertinent information were taken care of. And thus the world of arms, sexploitation and paedophilia continues to spin.

As we have explored, the manufactured nature of Belgium not dissimilar to Israel (though less bloody) it is obvious that Brussels and all its military agencies enjoys a disproportionate amount of power within the European Union. The 1970s and 1980s was particularly favourable for the development of institutional corruption. After the decision to set up the European headquarters of NATO otherwise known as Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) the CIA – along with the stay behind Gladio network – became concerned by the geo-political “prostitution” of Belgium to all and sundry, including Soviet spies. Gladio has all but been merged into the Zionist mafia consortiums that sub-contract assassins and various brokers within their respective fields. With the collapse of the USSR the underworld is flowing freely into the Balkans; into Belgian’s military-industrial Establishment and fanning out across Europe. It seems that Brussels is a nexus or crossroads in the transferring and brokering of a major number of shadowy deals which extend far beyond the daily abuse of market capitalism. Israel’s MOSSAD and its extensive networks of Zionist sayanim are central to this trade.

The Eurocrats and Marc Dutroux I

By M.K. Styllinski

“Deep State”: “The wider interface in America between the public, the constitutionally established state, and the deep forces behind it of wealth, power, and violence outside the government “

– Peter Dale Scott,The “Deep State” behind U.S. Democracy


The above quote illustrates the daily reality of American hegemony which applies equally to the European Union, notwithstanding the differing cultural channels through which such an underworld flows to become what Professor Dale Scott calls the “Overworld” – the seamless interface between corruption, crime and deep state intelligence machinations. We might add to this scenario the comprehensive pathology of normality which has taken place thanks to the steady accumulation of psychopaths clustering together at strategic points of power.  If we want to understand why our institutions are so infested with sociopaths, psychopaths and other predators who naturally create networks of corruption, extortion and sexual abuse, we must travel to the hub of such European operations: Belgium.

Just what is it about this little country of Belgium that has marked it out as the centre of European autocracy and its accompanying abuses of power?

In the Brussels region alone, there were reports that 1,300 minors disappeared without trace between 1991 and 1996 – the period where glimpses of organised child abuse began to be revealed in a more consistent manner across Western societies as a whole.  And according to Child Focus, “over 200 juveniles go missing each year in Belgium, a small country with a population less than the Greater London Area, which the NGO believes are kidnapped expressly for sexual abuse. Few ever return.” [1]

The high degree of tolerance given to prostitution in Belgium has long been exploited by Eastern European traffickers. At the time of writing, no coherent policy of control regarding the industry exists. According to a 2002 report from Expatica, 2001 saw an estimated 30,000 prostitutes working in the country, half of which came from Eastern Europe, although the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) confirms statistics on sex trafficking are unreliable or sometimes impossible to obtain. However, it does not take a statistician or a historian to understand that this particular underworld business is expanding. Among EU member states Belgium is recognised as one of the top destination and transit countries for trafficking and the sex trade, with those destined for prostitution commonly aged between 21-30 and teenage girls under the age of 18. [2]

Brussels is the headquarters of the European Union and considered the centre of “progressive” policies. From Luxembourg’s Eurostat, the statistics agency that determines who gets regional aid to the long distrusted European commission: both have been embroiled in allegations of scandal, financial mismanagement and serious fraud. In March 2004 Hans-Martin Tillack, the Brussels correspondent for Germany’s Stern magazine, was held for 10 hours by the Belgian police, without access to a lawyer, after his office and home were raided by six officers. The EU’s anti-fraud office (OLAF) was rather peeved that Mr. Tillack was rooting around a little too extensively into allegations of corruption. He had managed to obtain the greatest archive of investigative files of any journalist working in Brussels, the basis for his book on European Corruption.[3] OLAF made a rather weak allegation that the investigative journalist had paid money to obtain a leaked dossier from within its departments two years before, which he denied. One wonders if there were a few Eurocrats a little nervous about Mr.Tillack’s findings.

In 1989, Calvin Williams, a qualified British auditor, drew Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s attention to the rampant fraud within the EU and was duly hounded out of his job with no pension. The former auditor of the European Court of Auditors Robert ‘Dougal’ Watt, was forced to flee Luxembourg in April 2002, following a letter he sent to over 500 MEPs in Brussels claiming that the EU’s financial watchdog was “awash with corrupt officials” with: “nepotism, recruitment irregularities and even sexual harassment.” This proved a little too much for Brussels and its tentacles and, as it turned out, Watt’s sense of security. He believed that his forays into the fiscal world of the EU led him to “a chilling underground network of masons (working externally with Italian Mafia groups) … operating in the EU Court of Auditors, the European Parliament, the European Investment Bank – and the EU’s own Anti-Fraud Office, OLAF.” [4]  Whether this is precisely what Mr. Watt uncovered remains to be seen. Nevertheless, the European Court investigations into continuing fraud and financial malpractice were consistently obstructed and finally closed down.

The connected case of one Antonio Quatraro displays the same kind of institutional corruption that forms part of our own Official Culture. Quatraro leapt from an office window in April 1993 effectively quashing any further investigations into the EU’s processed tobacco sales racket where “huge proportions of “intervention tobacco” held in storage was sold to the black market, through an EC ‘tender’ that Quatraro had personally handled. [5] Quatraro was deemed the primary instigator of the racket and the minimal investigations carried out by the OLAF were once again, halted. Since that time, the allegations of a high degree of masonic involvement have proved more compelling and the proclamations that Quatraro acted alone as a “bad apple” is less than credible.

In 2005, the European Union’s financial watchdogs noted improvements but refused to give Brussels a clean bill of health for the 11th year in a row. [6]  Against the backdrop of severe economic austerity implemented by the very same powers, by 2012 it was the same story. For the 18th consecutive year the European Court of Auditors charged the EU with wasting billions – almost 4% of allocated funds. [7]  If this wasn’t enough, in 2011, a report was carried by The Daily Telegraph that the European Court of Auditors itself was accused of: “… watering down if not completely removing criticism,” by former member of the ECA Maarten Engwirda who had been with the body for 15 years. According to Engwirda, rather than exposing endemic corruption they merely “swept it under the carpet” by applying “‘heavy pressure’ on investigators to tone down findings of abuse.” The Dutch employee also stated in the report that “… an endemic ‘cover-up culture’ within the court and wider EU institutions … had prevented the true extent of fraud from being disclosed.” [8]

If you are one of the 56,000 Eurocrats currently employed at Brussels HQ and beyond it means a comfortable insulation from the effects of a disastrous financial architecture which the EU both supported and enforced. While budgets, public spending, and civil service staffing levels have been sliced in half across Europe, corruption and wastage of the 1€ trillion budget hasn’t stopped the massive building boom in Brussels. In 2011, €20m was thrown at a multimedia tribute to itself just down the street at the Parliamentarium visitors’ centre while a year later €300m (£241m) plus was spent on converting an art deco shell into a habitable palace for the European president and another €100m to create the European parliament’s version of the continent’s post-war history in a nearby park. [9]  Meanwhile, other Western and Eastern European countries such as Greece, Portugal, Spain and the East European nations are suffering in ways unheard of. This hasn’t prevented European Parliament MEPs taking advantage of the financial claims from trips financed by lobbyists but only if hotel costs surpass €300 a night or if they are flown business class. [10]

eu bubble

“EUROPA” the European Council building in Brussels. Something appears to be expanding…

Manufactured States

Belgium lays claim to being the centre of Universal Jurisdiction over Human Rights Atrocities which include matters involving child prostitution, child pornography and human trafficking, no matter where such offences are committed, by or against whom.[11] The law was passed in 1993 and led to cases being launched against a number of international politicians and military figures including former president George Bush, Secretary of State Colin Powell and US general Tommy Franks, Israel’s Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon and British Prime Minister, Tony Blair. This is one reason why it was repealed in 2003, as everybody knew that there wasn’t a hope in hell that such people would even get a parking ticket let alone get anywhere near a court. More officially, what followed were American accusations of hypocrisy, bigotry and arrogance over this international judiciary’s self-appointed position of “Judges of the world” which was a little rich coming from US government. The cases were dropped, regardless.

Bread and circuses…

The hypothesis of mafia, masons and anybody else, who utilise institutions of power at the public’s expense, is not such a difficult one to swallow when we look at Belgium’s history as a natural playground of the Eurocratic Elite. Perhaps Belgium’s curious history can account for the high proportion of pathological institutions residing in this little nation. Belgian ideologue Léon Hennebicq in 1904 described the country as “the laboratory of Europe.” They’ve been having a high old time ever since.

In the present-day Belgian Federal State there are four linguistic regions: the bilingual region of Brussels Capital, the Dutch-speaking region, the French-speaking region and the German-speaking region (about 60,000 people). It comprises of two peoples: the Dutch-speaking Flemings and French-speaking Walloons who make up the majority.  Originally, the country was part of the Netherlands but by 1830 the French revolutionists decided an annexation towards France would be in order. [12] This was the seating of further strains of psychopathy under the mantle of Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) the headquarters of the North Atlantic Treaty Organistion (NATO) which has come to oversee the expansion of financial warfare, narcotics, weapons, money laundering, human trafficking and the accoutrements of European Synarchy and Empire building.* It was to provide suitable European leverage for the Cold War hysteria with Russia and further military might behind Israel as their own power base in the Middle East. Belgium as a manufactured state essentially became an independent country to serve the needs of an aristocrats and Anglo-American elites. Thus a veneer of legitimacy was given to Leopold of Saxe-Coburg, who was also a member of the British Royal family. (Leopold may be remembered for his subjugation and genocide of what came to be known as the Democratic Republic of the Congo.) [13]

Writer and editor of the Brussels journal Paul Belien also makes the case that Belgium was a political experiment with a national “consciousness” which was not allowed to develop in the same ways as other European countries, primarily due to this late 19th century Belgian political Elite. They developed the ideology of “Belgicism” and sought to impose “a social-corporatist system” by artificially merging Flanders and Wallonia without the consent of the people. [14]  Using a unified Pan-European, corporatist welfare state run by “Social partners” which are by nature Belgian institutions that wield an enormous amount of political and financial power in both sectors of the country, it resulted in what the author calls a State that is “unloved by the people” and prone to corruption due to the absence of the rule of law and : “If the existence of the state is at stake, laws and even the constitution will be ignored in order to secure the continued existence of Belgium.” [15]  One example of these laws includes the declaration of persons as “invalids” which is “one of the methods by which the Socialists in Wallonia buy themselves clients. Some regions in Wallonia have the highest percentage of invalids in the whole of Europe.” [16]

Of course, this was a ruse of which criminal psychopath Marc Dutroux took full advantage by buying up houses all over Wallonia and using them as storage houses for “made to order” abuse. Therefore, the Belgian taxpayers, including the parents of the girls who were murdered by Dutroux, effectively ended up subsidising his crimes.  As Belien mentions: “Whether or not Dutroux was really an “invalid,” and how this unemployed invalid could afford nine houses, was never investigated by the authorities.” [17] To do so would be to address the whole top-heavy structure of European Establishment bureaucracy.

1_Belgium-country-shape-and-flag1-vertMarc Dutroux 2013

A Rule of Law assumes that government authority can only be exercised in accordance with written laws which were adopted through an established democratic procedure. This principle is intended to be a safeguard against arbitrary rulings in individual cases. Yet, this is not the case in Belgium as it’s laws are unusual and distinct, exploited to the full by the underworld and Elite. Whether one believes in the formation of a European Federalist Super-state and Belgium as a model for a “Greater Belgium” i.e. the rest of Europe, it hardly gives confidence that this is the most effective model to emulate, as the present crumbling of the European economic model illustrates.

Putting aside Brussels rhetoric, far from being a model, Belgian lawyers and their independence remain compromised from the undemocratically elected local bar associations and their associated abuses. Lawyers are still subject to fewer rights than ordinary citizens. They are denied the right to act for family members (which amounts to a breach of their human rights) and denied free access to the courts for summons regarding breaches of contract. These interdictions are upheld by the bar to protect corporate interests and to maintain a strange-hold on the legal process. In cruder form, this is much the same in America and much of Europe to variable degrees.  As evidenced during the Dutroux-Nihoul case, (which we will explore presently) lawyers are always vulnerable to outside influence. [18]

Belgium’s astonishing back log of judicial cases is further evidence not of a lack of organisation and structural capability but a deep and abiding unwillingness to uphold the principles of justice, due in part, to a cosy relationship to corruption. Article 22 of the 1994 amendment of the Belgian Constitution states: “Everyone has the right to the respect of his private and family life, except in the cases and conditions determined by law…” [19] which, if determined by a judiciary and government that is corrupt and self-serving should leave us rather worried.

Henri De Man, believed that Belgium must be built on what was to be “…as much federalism and as little separatism as possible,” so that “Belgium, exactly because it is not based on a unique national sentiment, can become the vanguard of the European Revolution, the principle on which the New European Order hinges.” [20] And by “New European Order” and “revolution” we may read something more akin to the European tradition of Synarchy **  an ultra- conservative tradition partnering Fabian collectivism the backdoor of “socialism” and “liberalism.” Factional differences with the same objectives. This, after all, is ever the Machiavellian modus operandi; implementing controls from a seemingly ethical foundation. Whether or not Belgium has a historically designed identity crisis for the furtherance of what has come to be known as a New International Order is one possibility that will begin to make further sense as we continue. [21]

As we saw in the last post masonic lodges have exerted a considerable amount of influence over the government and Judiciary in Belgium just as they have in the UK and France. It is inevitable that the Belgian public lost heart after the circus of the Dutroux-Nihoul case which served as a salutary reminder that the old boy’s network is still alive and well in Brussels and beyond.  One can muse as to how much influence these Elite have within such a highly focused and centralised concentration of European power. “Justice should not only be done but seen to be done” is a maxim for world law. When the Judiciary and government do not keep any centralized records or statistics of the number of complaints received or the actions taken in disciplining magistrates, this is hardly approaching transparency that Brussels sorely needs yet actively resists. [22] Though several new child welfare and trafficking units have been created and Belgium’s standing on international corruption has improved (slipping from 22nd in the world to 19th)  this does not encourage confidence for child rights when many children continue to go missing, high level prosecutions remaining a distant dream and child abuse networks still very much in place.

In a country where secrecy is the norm and truth seems to be way down the list of priorities, how exactly is this “blueprint for Europe” going to proceed? If this “European Union,” like the “United States of America” is in effect, a mask for an underworld that is rapidly gaining ascendance, one might then take a wild guess that Dutroux and his associates may have been working for those higher up in the chain of child prostitution and sexual slavery.

If so, are there glimpses of a global network finally unravelling or is it merely streamlining into more overt operations?

 


* Otherwise referred to as “The Joint” By Kay Griggs. See: Satan’s Little Helpers VIII: Weimar, Magick and Cherry Marines.
** The original meaning of Synarchy: joint rule [from Greek sunarchia, from sunarchein to rule jointly] (Merriam-Webster Dictionary) but this evolved into something quite different under the influential writings of Alexandre Saint-Yves d’Alveydre (1842–1909), who used the term in his book La France vraie to describe his vision of an ideal form of government. He was both and occultist and fascist with his beliefs offering another rendition of Elite rule based on social differentiation and hierarchy – “Synarchy”, as opposed to “anarchy” which was being encouraged as the bogey-man of the day. Alveydre envisioned a Federal Europe of integrated states with a corporatist government composed of three councils rooted in academia, the judiciary, and commerce. As such, the European Union and its various economic offshoots are purely the result of synarchism as an expression of a shadow government which has distinctly plutocratic overtones as oppose to an oligarchical presence usually known to the public.

Reed has his own bias but the overall veracity of his research regarding the manipulation of geo-politics by Anglo-American and Zionist elements remains an essential contribution to the understanding of 20th and 21st century geo-political discourse.

Estimates of the death toll in the Congo alone range from three to twenty-two million. Exercising its control in particularly cruel and brutal ways, this form of slave labour was Belgium’s forte. Under the ruse of a humanitarian exploration the Congo was to be the starting point of a piecemeal carving up of central Africa by European nations which has continued to this day. No different to most colonial powers one might say.
