Dismantling the investigation

The initial investigation into Dutroux and Nihoul was headed by Michel Bourlet, the prosecutor of the king in the Neufchateau district, and examining magistrate Jean-Marc Connerotte. These two men already had gained somewhat of a martyr status, because several years before the Dutroux case they had been taken off the investigation into the murder of the socialist leader Andre Cools, apparently right before being able to solve the case. Then, in 1996, when they finally found two missing girls -- alive -- they became national heroes overnight.

It was Connerotte who appointed BOB officer Patriek De Baets and his team to the X1 case in early September 1996. In this function De Baets worked directly for Connerotte and could work relatively autonomous from his superiors in the BOB and the overall gendarmerie.

The first major change in the investigation occurred on October 14, 1996. Connerotte was removed as examining magistrate, the reason being that he had attended a fund raising for parents of missing children. The problem here was that Sabine and Laetitia, the girls he had personally rescued from Dutroux's dungeon, were present at this meeting as guests of honor. The lawyers of Dutroux and Nihoul had gotten wind of this visit and began a successful procedure to remove Connerotte, arguing that the examining magistrate had shown with this visit that he wasn't carrying out his investigation objectively enough.

Jean-Marc Connerotte, sacked from the Dutroux investigation before it ever really got off the ground.

Although many wonder how Connerotte could have been so careless, especially with such a sensitive case, there are quite a number of extenuating circumstances. For example, Connerotte, who was on leave and had married earlier that day, made sure to pay for the plate of spaghetti he was given, made sure that he did not to meet with the girls or their parents, declined to accept flowers from Laetitia and Sabine, and handed over the fountain pen the guests had been given to a judicial registrar (140). Also, Connerotte barely stayed an hour, but with this visit he and Bourlet (who also went) made yet another effort to change the consensus view that the justice department wasn't interested in parents of missing children or victims of child abuse.

All these facts didn't matter and Connerotte was replaced by the inexperienced examining magistrate Jacques Langlois. As rumors of a cover-up had already begun to spread, the removal sparked massive protests all around the country. In Brussels alone, more than 300,000 people went to the streets to protest (the famous White March), but it changed nothing.

As the prosecutor of the King, Bourlet was not forced to step down. However, the examining magistrate does the majority of the in depth investigations. Therefore Bourlet's hands were largely tied when Langlois came in and immediately decided that he didn't want to hear anything about child abuse networks. Langlois became one of those responsible for dismantling the whole Dutroux investigation by ignoring countless leads and sending his investigators off into all kinds of bogus issues.

A second major change occurred in early December 1996. Until that point, as said before, the BOB officers working with the various X-witnesses worked independently from the BOB and gendarmerie hierarchy. They had a supporting role in the Dutroux investigation and answered directly to Bourlet and Connerotte, and later on to the much less interested Langlois. However, on December 1, all the inspectors working on the sub-dossiers of the Dutroux affair, including the X-Dossiers, were brought together in a large secured building just outside Brussels. Gendarmerie Commandant Jean-Luc Duterme was appointed head of this investigating cell and was able to heavily influence the ongoing investigations.

Michel Bourlet, prosecutor of the king in Neufchateau since 1984. Has always been on the side of Connerotte, De Baets and X1, even though his hands were tied. Had a hilarious run in with Baron de Bonvoisin, one of the most notorious suspects in the X-Dossiers, very early on in the investigation. De Bonvoisin had arranged a meeting in his castle with some of the Dutroux case investigators, during which he called Bourlet and tried to make an appointment. Bourlet pretended to accept a meeting for the next day, but never showed up.

With Langlois and Duterme in place the overall Dutroux investigation began to take a dramatic turn for the worse. In complete contrast with Connerotte and Bourlet, Langlois did not communicate directly with the interviewers of the various X-witnesses, but went to Commandant Duterme instead (141). While Duterme secretly, and without having the proper authority, began to "reread" the testimonies of the X-witnesses, Langlois dived head on into leads that Connerotte and Bourlet had suspected from day one to be disinformation (142). The major examples would be:

• the digs in Jumet, which were inspired by the bogus claims of convicted pedophile Jean-Paul Raemaekers;

• the November 1996 Oliver Trusgnach case in which high level politicians Elio Di Rupo and Jean-Pierre Grafe were implicated as pedophiles;

• the prominent December 12, 1996 search of the Gnostic-Luciferian (Satanic) Abrasax [Abraxas] cult.

The Jumet digs and the Oliver Trusgnach case were complicated disinformation schemes, ultimately meant to provide "skeptics" with examples that Neufchateau investigators could easily be fooled by captured child abusers and fantasists who make up stories. In fact, in a truly Machiavellian way, De Baets and his team were forced, without knowing anything about the case, to take up a primary role in the Trusgnach case the day before all the (soon to be discredited) accusations would be published in the press. Police commissioner Georges Marnette played a central role in both of these disinformation schemes, about which you can read in detail in 'the accused' appendix. Why there? Because both X2 and Nathalie W. identified Marnette as an abuser in the network (143).

The Abrasax [Abraxas] story is less complicated. The following well known newspaper report, published on December 29, 1996 by the Sunday Times, is one of the best examples in which some of the most accurate (albeit hard to believe) information appears to have been strategically mixed in with a central piece of disinformation.

"SATANIC sects involved in bizarre rites including human sacrifice are being linked by Belgian police with this summer's string of grisly paedophile murders in which at least four children died.

Five witnesses came forward last week and described how black masses were held, at which children were killed in front of audiences said to have included prominent members of Belgian society. One investigator said it was "like going back to the Middle Ages".

Picture of Abrasax [Abraxas] headquarters in the small, stuffy home of Francis "Anubis-Moloch" Desmedt and Dominique "Nahema-Nephthys" Kindermans where maybe 20 persons could be involved in a ritual at the same time. The profoundly negative Abrasax [Abraxas] cult consisted of four institutes: The Belgian Church of Satan, the Wicca center, the Order for Luciferian Initiation and the Gnostic church. Psychotherapy was also practiced here.

Keep the following in mind: like Jumet didn't disprove the existence of a network surrounding Nihoul and the Trusgnach case didn't disprove high level involvement in abuse networks, so the Abrasax [Abraxas] disinformation doesn't prove (high level) Satanism doesn't exist. It's important to note that there are innumerable and very similar reports of cultist or Satanic practices in combination with child abuse. Going through US and UK newspaper archives since the late 1970s will turn up thousands of (mainly superficial) reports on ritual abuse and Satanism. In the X-Dossiers there also appears a fair dose of reports on Satanism and ritual abuse, which is not necessarily the same thing. You can read these reports in the 'victims and witnesses' appendix. More information on this aspect in part 15.

The tentacles of the sects appear to have stretched beyond the borders of Belgium to Holland, Germany and even America. The witnesses -- several of whom claim to have received death threats -- say that young babies were handed over by their parents willingly in return for money. In other cases the victims were abducted. [PEHI note: The incest aspect should definitely have been described here. The "abductions" should also have been explained in more detail]

The witnesses, who are believed to have identified the sites where the masses took place to the police, said organisers had also photographed participants and threatened to hand over their pictures if they went to the police.

The investigation centres on Abrasax [Abraxas] [the crucial piece of disinformation], a self-styled institute of black magic, whose headquarters in the village of Forchies-la-Marche in southern Belgium was raided by police last week. Human skulls were among the objects removed from the run-down building.

... Police have long suspected that Dutroux, a convicted paedophile, was part of an international network which abducted children, sexually abused them and then killed them. Their activities appear to have been financed by the sale of pornographic videos filmed by members of the ring.

... Investigators are still trying to determine the precise nature of the links between the Satanists and the paedophile groups.

In a separate twist, a Belgian newspaper claimed yesterday that a former European commissioner was among a group of judges, senior politicians, lawyers and policemen who attended orgies held in a Belgian chateau and organised by Michel Nihoul, one of Dutroux's alleged accomplices. La Derniere Heure, which claimed to have a guest list, did not name the commissioner but said he "came with a girl, Josette, nicknamed Jojo, the Bomb".

Everything mentioned in this article is accurate, meaning that this is what a number of anonymous (to the public) witnesses were testifying about in Neufchateau at that moment. Although not all spoke about Satanism, at least half of them did. But besides the exaggerated focus on Satanism, the disinformation here is that this whole Satanic or sectarian aspect of the investigation centered around the Abrasax [Abraxas] cult. The X-Dossiers had absolutely nothing to do with Abrasax [Abraxas] and even though there might have been some circumstantial Dutroux/Weinstein- related evidence against the cult to justify a house search some day (144), there's no good reason why, with all those other promising leads, this questionable and highly delicate one had to be picked out for a premature house search. Unless, of course, the aim was to discredit the whole investigation, which is what Connerotte and his chief investigator De Baets have publicly stated (145). The basic idea was to discredit any future claims of Satanism and extreme abuse by bringing up the (soon to be discredited) Abrasax [Abraxus] affair. This motive also becomes obvious when one learns that Duterme, with the consent of Langlois, scrapped all of the 43 house searches recommended by De Baets and Bourlet. Their list was based on the most promising information supplied by the X-witnesses, which indeed included "a former European commissioner... judges, senior politicians, lawyers and policemen" (146).

By the time the Abrasax [Abraxas] story hit the news, it was clear that Duterme was in town. He had gathered a small group of vicious debunkers around him, the most prominent being Eddy Verhaeghen, Baudouin Dernicourt and Philippe Pourbaix. When the main interviewer of Nathalie W. suffered a stroke in late January 1997, Duterme replaced this person and his partner with Dernicourt and Pourbaix. Nathalie had trusted her first interviewers and although testifying was a huge mental challenge for her, she did provide certain names and details that matched with those provided by other X-witnesses (147). This all changed when Dernicourt and Pourbaix went after Nathalie like a couple of attack dogs. They managed to completely destabilize the victim in a matter of one or two hearings. In March Nathalie dropped from the investigation (148).

The other favorite BOB officer of Duterme, Eddy Verhaeghen, played a key role in discrediting X1. In July 1997, Duterme's first version of the re-reads of the X1 interviews was done. Based on these re-reads De Baets and his team were fired later that month, and Verhaeghen became the new chief interviewer of X1. X1 describes how things changed:

"The two BOB officers with whom I have to work from now on come to pick me up for an 'informal' talk... The three of us go and sit at a table in a village cafeteria... Eddy voices my suspicions in the following words: 'We don't care if it is true or not. The only thing that matters to me is my paycheck at the end of the month.' I smile worryingly. Am I psychic after all? The discussion proceeds in the expected direction. The security- and investigative brigade of the gendarmerie thinks that the ball is in my court. I am the one who has to come up with evidence, they won't do any field- or investigative work anymore. In these words they ask for my cooperation. When I state that I do not have the authority to conduct searches, nor that I can come up with evidence if they are not willing to investigate, they just laugh at me... Eddy begins to insinuate that it all couldn't have been so bad. Because, look, I have a husband and four kids, I have everything that I wish and also, I can laugh... 'Come on', Eddy says rather loud, 'you also enjoyed it, didn't you? You can't say that everything was bad? You were in love with Tony, weren't you?' After exactly one year of hearings, in which I was treated with respect, I politely try to explain my feelings. I wasn't 'in love' with him, I loved him; like a daughter loves her father [at least, that's what she tried to convince herself of as a young girl]..."

"I am only really disheartened when Eddy and his colleague interrogate my friend Tania. This happens in such a dehumanizing manner that I begin to feel sick. Her hearing is not recorded on video, and they know it. The two BOB officers eagerly use their power position to destabilize and intimidate Tania by bringing up her personal life. They question her in an office where every BOB officer walks in and out of, and where my supposedly well-protected dossiers are up for grabs. Tania asks what her personal life has to do with the case. After all, she did nothing more than encourage me to testify, and made the first telephone contact with Connerotte... Are you also a victim? Were you also in the network? You're not going to tell me that you didn't have anything to do with the network of Ginie? Have you known De Baets a long time? Was this really the first time you spoke to him, the 4th of September 1996? Are you sure you never were in the prostitution? Are you really sure? The discussion continues along these lines the whole afternoon. Tania is intimidated. Tania even became so scared that she comes to me in the late afternoon, looks silently at me for a while and then advises me to stop testifying. For the first time my friend understands my words just before she phoned up Connerotte in '96: 'This is too big, Tania, I can't do anything against my perpetrators." (149)

De Baets and his team were fired on charges that they would have manipulated X1 into saying things that they wanted to hear. Continuous leaks to the press were organized in the following months that were supposed to prove this accusation. However, an official investigation had also been launched and in 2000 the Court of Law in Brussels concluded that there was no evidence at all that De Baets and his team had been manipulating X1.

January 2000, Patriek De Baets (left) and Aime Bille (right), leaving the Palace of Justice in Brussels after having been fully acquitted of any wrongdoing in working with the X-witnesses.

One of the main accusation against De Baets was that he had not filed an official report of the fact that X1 misidentified Christine Van Hees from a series of pictures. This turned out to be a lie, as this report, PV 117.487, December 6, 1997, had been written and properly filed by his assistant interviewer Philippe Hupez. Hupez had written many other official reports about his work with X1, so chances that this was a honest mistake of Duterme are pretty low.

And even the simple accusation of the rereaders that X1 had misidentified Christine Van Hees is misleading, since in the supposedly missing PV 117.487 Hupez explained it point blank that X1 intentionally didn't point out Christine.

"X1 testified to have recognized Christine between the pictures presented to her, but does not identify the picture she recognizes... We conclude from this: 1. the picture P10, pointed out by X1, is not the victim she spoke about, Christine. 2. But the photo of the victim was among those shown to X1 [5 in total], which she intentionally didn't point out."

Of course, it's reasonable to be skeptical about the claim of Hupez and De Baets that X1 "intentionally" didn't point out Christine. It seems that either they tried to manipulate the investigation, or it must have been very clear to them that X1 was not cooperating. According to X1, it's the latter. She explained:

"In order to judge objectively what happened there that morning, you need to be able to take a look at the tape of that hearing... you would see that after I pointed to the picture P10 I looked at De Baets and Hupez with an exultant look on my face. Like: and now it's your turn!... It was 7 o'clock in the morning. I was sick and tired of it, I wanted to go home. If I had pointed out Christine... De Baets undoubtedly would have continued for another hour or three. In my stubbornness I wanted to make them feel that they should have given me more time. I take comfort in one thought though: if the successors of De Baets had not seized this opportunity to seed doubt in everything, they undoubtedly would have found something else." (150)

Until the video of X1's interview is made public there might be some lingering doubt about the explanations given by X1 and the interviewers. However, their stories are coherent, the interviewers were acquitted from accusations that they manipulated, and it has not been them who continually changed their story. The only thing the interviewers can be accused of is of having pushed this interview with X1, which started on 22:55 PM, too far.

There are numerous other examples of manipulations by the rereaders. The authors of 'The X-Dossiers' filled an entire book with them. In a number of chapters they quote large portions of the reports written by the rereaders and compare them to the original testimonies.

Although in most cases it seemed intentional, one of the first things that became obvious was that Duterme nor the other rereaders fully mastered the Dutch language; the language in which X1 testified. Duterme would continually ask questions about passages which would be completely clear to anyone speaking perfect Dutch (like the author of this article). Duterme probably made one of his biggest mistakes when he concluded from one of X1's statements that her grandmother had also been present at the murder of Christine Van Hees. The only thing that X1 had said here was:

'My grandmother also had those in her scullery' [referring to meat hooks she had seen in the champignon factory] (151).

In another case, Duterme did not understand that the word "bus" has more than one meaning in Dutch. He apparently knew that it could refer to a vehicle that drives on the road, but forgot that it can also refer to a small container in which things can be put (a "can" or "small box", usually metal). Describing the location where Christine Van Hees had been murdered, X1 at some point spoke about a "bus" containing a liquid. In another place she called this object a "jerrycan". Duterme wrote next to the sentence containing "jerrycan" that this is a different object than the "bus containing liquid" described earlier, which is complete madness (152).

Baudouin Dernicourt, who had come up with the false statement that De Baets and Hupez had not filed an official report of X1 misidentifying Christine Van Hees, made even worse "mistakes". Pertaining to Carine "Clo" Dellaert which X1 was to identify from a set of pictures, X1 at one point stated: "Not that I saw, but..." and "... she wasn't in there also". In Dernicourt's translations this became: "I know that I saw her..." and "Wasn't she in there also?" (153) Just incredible.

There are numerous other incorrect statements from the rereaders that were echoed all over the media. Take the following two sentences from a widely-read newspaper report published on February 5, 2004, just before the final Dutroux-Nihoul trial:

"On pictures of missing children which are presented to her, she [X1] identifies Loubna Benaissa, Kim and Ken Heyrman and the Dutch Naatje Zwaren de Zwarenstein as victims of the network. Later it would come out that Loubna was murdered by the psychopath Patrick Derochette. Naatje van Zwaren de Zwarenstein turned out not to be missing at all. The investigators had been mistaken when they showed this picture to X1, it turned out." (154)

Now let's take a look at the facts. Loubna was a 9 year old girl when she disappeared in August 1995. She was found dead on March 5, 1997 in the home of the pedophile Patrick Derochette. Four days before this event, X1 had been talking about children she had witnessed being killed in snuff movies. De Baets at some point had asked if one of these children might have been Loubna, to which Regina's only answer was "could be". The rereaders somehow interpreted this as meaning "yes". The rereaders went on to claim that in this same interview X1 had also stated to have witnessed the murder of Kim and Ken Heyrman. This is also false. X1 had spoken about a brother and sister. De Baets had asked X1 outside of the official interview if this might have been Kim and Ken. Again X1's only answer was: "Could be, I don't know." (155)

Besides echoing the false statements of the rereaders, most newspapers didn't report a whole lot about the the Loubna Benaissa and Kim and Ken Heyrman cases. The parents of both of these children had been treated very badly by the investigators. In case of Loubna Benaissa, separate leads to the law clerk of Jean-Claude Van Espen (head of the X1-Van Hees dossier), Christine Van Hees case and the Dutroux-Nihoul network had been ignored (156). In case of Kim and Ken Heyrman, their mother, Tiny Mast, became a good friend of X1. She stated:

"I don't trust those people at all. It is they who lost the sweater of Ken. The kidnapper had sent me that sweater, probably to scare me, I assume. In a normal country that is a hyper-important element in the investigation. Traces might be be found on it. Well, they just made that sweater disappear. It is they who at a certain point told me in my face that I was the murderer and that I'd better fess up. I can tell hundreds of stories which, if I compare them with what the Verwilghen commission labeled as "mistakes", really stretch the imagination. Those guys are so aggressive and so inhumane that I sometimes feel that they are part of the same clique as those who took away my children. I believe Regina Louf, I really do." (157)

For a change, the newspaper's claim that X1 had identified Naatje van Zwaren de Zwarenstein is accurate. This happened during the same interview in which X1 recognized Katrien de Cuyper. However, this case had no priority status and X1 never said more about Naatje than: "a girl of which I think I have seen her at one point" (158). Also, the newspaper's claim that Naatje "turned out not to be missing at all" is extremely misleading for a number of reasons.

The 14 year old Naatje went missing on March 12, 1976, three days after one of her alleged friends, Paulette N., had also disappeared. The media made no big deal out of the event, especially not when Naatje turned up again on April 7 of that year in the Netherlands. However, friends of Naatje told a disturbing story to investigators, a story which sounded awfully similar to the one of the X-witnesses 20 years later. They named Naatje's riding school, coincidentally the same as Christine Van Hees', as one of the locations through which a child prostitution ring operated. This ring, in which Naatje and Paulette had ended up, apparently provided services to several foreign embassies in Brussels and had connections in the Netherlands and England. One of the girls who knew Naatje and Paulette was Joëlle J. Besides regular abuse and beatings, Joëlle also spoke about forced abortions, orgies at which children were cut to pieces and people who had been beaten up or killed for having spoken about the network. Other girls from this abuse network, Marie V. and Mireille D.B., backed up portions of the story of Joëlle J. Immediately after Naatje's return, she moved with her parents to the United States, but died there in 1980 in a traffic accident. (159)

Another argument that was used against X1 was the claim that Christine Van Hees' mother had tricked X1 during a confrontation on March 3, 1998. Van Hees' mother spoke about her daughter's trip to Canada just weeks before she was murdered, and asked X1 if Christine had mentioned anything to her about this trip. According to substitute magistrate Paule Somers, "X1 immediately remembered what Christine had told about that. But mother Van Hees tricked X1, because Christine had never been to Canada." This was an argument that severely impacted the credibility of X1 in the eyes of those who until then were still willing to give her the benefit of the doubt.

In early 1999, the Brussels lawyer Patricia Vandersmissen became interested in defending X1 against the constant barrage of press attacks. But before she would commit herself to the X1 case, she asked permission to access a portion of the X1-dossier to check a number of statements from X1 that had appeared in the press. One of those she was most interested in was X1's supposed confirmation of Christine's fictitious trip to Canada. The confrontation, which was led by Danny De Pauw (who betrayed De Baets and team) and the notoriously inaccurate translator Baudouin Dernicourt, was recorded on video and in writing. According to Vandersmissen:

"Antoinette Vanhoucke [mother Van Hees]: 'And in the mean time she made a big trip. She goes to Canada. Did she never speak about that?'

Regina Louf [X1]: 'I don't think we ever had the chance, to speak about those things.'"

"That's what has been written down. Nothing else. I read the official report from front to back and from back to front. I restarted three times, continually looking if that mother had brought up the topic again. But no. This is everything that has been said about the trip to Canada: nothing. Regina Louf says that she knows nothing about the trip to Canada. The truth has been reversed for the public." (160)

And so the disinformation game continues. There are so many examples and different aspects to discuss that the authors of the book 'The X-Dossiers' were able to fill a 500+, large page, small type book with them. To summarize, the tactics used by the rereaders can be found in almost any other disinformation scheme:

• Most statements of X1 were ignored.

• A number of statements were invented and attributed to X1.

• Bizarre conclusions were drawn from isolated passages of the testimony of X1.

• Small details in X1's testimony that appear to be wrong were given much more attention than any of the more important aspects that appeared to be right.

• One-sided leaks were organized to the media.

• De Baets and his team were portrayed as worshippers of X1, who in turn was portrayed as a self-absorbed aspiring cult leader.

• All searches at individuals and locations named by the X-witnesses were canceled. Except for a few bogus locations, searches were only carried out at the homes of the victim-witnesses and at those who supported them.

Questionable and extremely compromised researchers

It is a fairly well known fact that Nihoul was a BOB informant (161). Details about Nihoul's direct and indirect connections to officers heading his own investigation are not entirely unknown.


Above you can see the basic final structure of the X-Dossier investigation. X1 worked with Eddy Verhaeghen and Danny De Pauw, who had replaced Patriek De Baets and Philippe Hupez. Coincidentally, Verhaeghen was one of Nihoul's runners during the time that this gangster was an informant to the BOB (162).

Victim Nathalie W. was forced to work with Baudouin Dernicourt and Philippe Pourbaix. They had replaced Theo Vandyck and Joël Gerard in early February 1997. Dernicourt has been tied to the terrorist CCC bombings (163), officially a radical communist group, but in reality a fascist Gladio operation, similar to the Gang of Nijvel (164).

The other X-witnesses were handled by other BOB officers, who, since December 1, 1996, had all been placed under the authority of Commandant Jean-Luc Duterme. Duterme had already made a name for himself in the 1980s as the right hand man of prosecutor Jean Depretre in the Gang of Nijvel investigation. Together they did a lot of damage to the investigation and persecuted officers who wanted to find out the truth. Depretre earlier played a key role in terminating the 1979 Montaricourt-Israel investigations, which involved a high level European-wide prostitution network (165). Depretre was accused by X2 of being involved in the child abuse network (166).

Jean-Luc Duterme had been appointed head of the Neufchateau cell by Lt.-Col. Jean-Marie Brabant, the commandant of the BOB in Brussels. Brabant, as well as Lt.-Col. Guido Torrez, head of the gendarmerie in Neufchateau, were Duterme's immediate superiors.

Just after Nihoul and Bouty had been arrested, Brabant was caught lying to examining magistrate Connerotte when he denied that the BOB had any earlier dossiers on Michel Nihoul or Annie Bouty. They had dossiers on both of them (167). Brabant apparently also lied to prosecutor Bourlet when he tried to explain to him that the Dutroux-Nihoul investigation was taking away resources from other important dossiers. Unfortunately for Brabant, not one of the investigators working for Neufchateau had been taken from Brabant's most important dossiers, like KB-Lux. That is, according to Patriek De Baets (168).

Lt.-Col. Torrez, Duterme's immediate superior in Neufchateau, is known to have taken an order from Nihoul in October 1986 to leave one of his mafia business partners, a Portuguese named Juan Borges, alone. Borges had ties to the Italian mafia, the fascist underground and the Security Bureau of the European Union/Commission. Just as telling, Torrez was a very good friend of Brussels police commissioner Georges Marnette. They both were supporters of the soccer club Anderlecht and could often be seen at matches together (169).

Marnette is one of the most shadowy characters in the whole Dutroux-Nihoul affair. His history and manipulations are far too complex to be discussed in this article, but have been recorded in great detail in 'the accused' appendix. As already stated, Marnette can be found in that list because both X2 and Nathalie W. fingered him as an abuser in the network. Marnette's close friend, Jean-Paul Dumont, who apparently aided in some of the manipulations (170), has even more accusations of sadistic child abuse against his person (171). Dumont, once a CEPIC director, was on close terms with some of the most notorious abusers in the X-Dossiers, including Paul Vanden Boeynants and Baron de Bonvoisin (172), not to mention Michel Nihoul (173). Marnette is known to have been a frequent visitor of the Les Atrebates sex orgy club and later on the Dolo (174), Nihoul's favorite hang-outs (175), and therefore was an obvious co-partouzer of Nihoul (176).

But the cover-up, as might be expected, is known to have been supported at an even higher level. Col. Torrez and Col. Brabant both were subordinate to Lt.-Gen. Herman Fransen, the long time chief of staff to Lt.-Gen. Willy Deridder, the overall commandant of the gendarmerie. In May 1998, Fransen himself became head of the gendarmerie while Deridder moved on to one of the top seats at Interpol. Fransen had a younger brother, Col. Hubert Fransen, who was a senior officer in the Inspection Department (including Internal Affairs) of the gendarmerie. In early 1999, Col. Hubert Fransen was appointed head of investigation of the Pignolet inquiry, which unsuccessfully had tried to substantiate the accusations of Duterme and Van Espen against De Baets for over a year at that point. Fransen's predecessor had been fired after informing Pignolet once again that he was chasing ghosts. Under Fransen the "investigation" intensified. The home of Tania V., the good friend of X1, was searched, possible ties between X1 and Gang of Nijvel victims were searched, and helicopters were used to shoot aerial pictures of a villa which might have played a central role in the "De Baets-X1 conspiracy". This bogus investigation became almost as expensive as the original X1 investigation itself. But still, nothing was found and De Baets was acquitted.

Besides police commissioner Georges Marnette, the gendarmerie always had outside support of the media and most magistrates. X-Dossier examining magistrate Jacques Langlois, who had replaced Connerotte, was the most important of these, followed by Jean-Claude Van Espen and prosecutor Jean Soenen.

Langlois and his family have been long time PSC supporters. It was the PSC, and Joseph Michel, once a minister of the PSC under Paul Vanden Boeynants, in particular, to whom Langlois owed his legal career. Michel introduced Langlois to politics in 1988 and made him a magistrate in 1993. Going back to the 1970s, Michel had been a founding member of the fascist think tank within the PSC, CEPIC (177), which was largely coordinated by Paul Vanden Boeynants and Baron de Bonvoisin, both accused of extreme child abuse by several X-witnesses. Amazingly, in 1978 Joseph Michel had been contacted by a jailed Jean-Michel Nihoul, and became responsible for this person's early release (178). In the aftermath of Connerotte's removal and replacement with Langlois, it was claimed that Michel had largely been directing these events (179).

Langlois did a lot to dismantle the X-investigation and the Nihoul dossier, but one example in particular shows that he could get away with anything. Langlois had been meeting with the producers of 'Au Nom de la Loi', an influential French-language TV program. Following these meetings, 'Au Nom de la Loi' broadcasted four extremely manipulative prime-time TV programs from 1997 to 2000 in which they tried to convince the public that Nihoul was an innocent victim in the whole Dutroux affair. The major problem with Langlois having met with the media (not to mention, having directed these manipulative programs), is that it couldn't have been more out of line with his function as a supposedly objective examining magistrate. Langlois' predecessor Connerotte was fired for reasons that were peanuts compared to what Langlois did. And yet, most of the media came to his defense. (180)

Probably the most blatant example of a conflict-of-interest in the Dutroux, Nihoul and X- Dossier investigations is Jean-Claude Van Espen, who had been assigned to the X1- Christine Van Hees case. As you might still remember, Nihoul and Bouty were named by X1 as some of the individuals present at Christine's murder. Now, isn't it interesting that Van Espen used to do some part-time work in the law firm of Annie Bouty and Michel Nihoul? His sister, Francoise Van Espen, had married one of the partners in this firm, Philippe Deleuze, and used to act as the godmother of Nihoul's son. Deleuze, who was an important CEPIC member, apparently became responsible with Paul Vanden Boeynants for kickstarting Van Espen's career as an examining magistrate. PV 10.543, October 8, 1996, a hearing of Nihoul:

Jean-Claude Van Espen, one of the most blatant examples of a conflict-of-interest in the Dutroux- Nihoul case.

"He [Nihoul] knew Van Espen when this person was an occasional collaborator in the office of Annie Bouty and Philippe Deleuze. The sister of Jean Claude Van Espen is the wife of Philippe Deleuze and is the godmother of the son of Jean Michel Nihoul. Jean Claude Van Espen would have been appointed a magistrate after Paul Vanden Boeynants, Philippe Deleuze intervened in his favor. Nihoul declares to have learned from lawyer Vidick that Van Espen would have been involved in a child molestation network."

Except for Nihoul's last statement, these claims have been repeated and expanded upon in several media outlets and never been disputed. It's hard to tell why Nihoul would implicate Van Espen in a child molestation network, although it could well be to send a message to the magistrate and other top officials to pressure them into getting him released. After all, pressure and blackmail is the major trait of the network.

[Added in April 2010:] He became more quiet as time went on, but Nihoul, who had been released on parole in 1999, himself said it in an interview to Der Spiegel in 2001:

"I control the government. ... Everyone has compromising dossiers on one another, to be used as leverage in the right situation. ... This is the Belgian disease. ...

"Give me another 20.000 Marks, and I give you a serving minister who is embroiled in a murder. ... I know the killer and will have him contact the minister by telephone. You can listen along, okay?

"[Voice recorder turned off. For a 6-digit sum] I will give you a picture on which then Prince Albert jumps a 16 year old girl. Naked. Shot at the second floor of the Mirano Club 20 years ago [where a pedophile blackmail ring allegedly was situated, according to other witnesses]. ... Then I do have to leave Belgium."


When you compare Nihoul's many associations over the years with the names that appeared in the Dutroux investigation, either as investigators or accused, the picture below emerges.


Many of these names still need to be discussed, but it seems clear that Nihoul's investigation was not an impartial one. It certainly helps to explain how he got away and Dutroux did not.

By now you might have noticed that the words CEPIC and PSC have begun to appear in increasing frequency. That's not a coincidence and this aspect will be explored a bit further in this article.

The accused in finance

A bit of history first. The land which eventually became the state of Belgium has mainly been a battleground between Catholic and Liberal-Protestant interests. Over the centuries and decades, this land subsequently belonged to the Spanish and Austrian Habsburgs, Napoleon's France and since 1815, the Netherlands. In 1830, mainly the Catholic middle and upper class living in the southern provinces of the United Netherlands had become so fed up with their lack of self-determination that they staged a revolution. It succeeded and the state of Belgium was born. Families like de Merode and De Ligne were initially offered the throne, but they refused and the Saxe-Coburg-Gothas came in.

The major bank in Belgium and the central pillar of its industry was Societe Generale des Pays-Bas, established by King William I of Orange in 1822 for the exact purpose of financing the growth of Belgian industry. After the revolution the name changed to Societe Generale de Belgique and some of Belgium's major aristocratic families gained control over it. This control by families as de Merode, de Meeus, Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, Janssen, Lippens, Boël and Solvay remained throughout the 19th and 20th century, with the Vatican bank also holding a significant stake. William of Orange eventually let go of the bank.

Societe Generale's influence over the Belgian economy has always been huge, controlling anywhere between 25 and 50 percent of Belgium's manufacturing industry. (181) It was only in 1988 that the unimaginable happened: the French Suez group took over the bank, and with that, a large chunk of Belgium's economy. Viscount Etienne Davignon was made chairman and remained in that position until 2001. Count Maurice Lippens became the bank's vice chairman.

The other major historical bank/holding firm in Belgium is Groupe Bruxelles Lambert, its history starting around 1830 when a banker named Lazare Richtenberger became an agent of the London Rothschilds. The son-in-law of Richtenberger, Samuel Lambert, took over the business ten years later. The Rothschilds would often come and visit Samuel and his son Leon in Brussels to advise them on social and political events affecting the markets. Especially James de Rothschild made sure that Banque Lambert focused on financing the railroad companies, like the Morgans, Harrimans and Schiffs were doing in the United States. Leon married Zoe Lucie de Rothschild in 1882, fulfilled diplomatic functions and became the most important financial advisor to King Leopold II of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. When Leopold II acquired the Congo as his own private slave colony in 1885, Leon took over a large part of the financial matters there. (182) Ironically, the Rothschild-backed Cecil Rhodes was one of Leopold's competitors in Africa.

The Lamberts appear to have remained close associates of the Rothschilds until this day (183), but their influence in Belgian banking seems to have waned. Banque Bruxelles Lambert has been taken over by the Dutch bank ING in 1998 while the Lamberts only have a honorary mentioning in the list of directors of Groupe Bruxelles Lambert (GBL). The Belgian Frere and Canadian Desmarais families are the ones in control of GBL these days. These two families also have a large influence on the Suez group, which owns Societe Generale. In other words, Belgium's primary banks are fully or largely owned by Dutch, Canadian or French interests.

Another important aristocratic Belgian company is the chemical giant Solvay, founded in 1863 by the Solvay family. It went public in 1967, but the Solvay and Boël families were able to keep control over the company through their holding Union Financiere Boël. The Janssens, De Selliers De Moranvilles and Karel van Miert are also major shareholders of Solvay, or today's holding company, Solvac. In 2003, van Miert replaced Etienne Davignon as director of Solvay.

Below is a table which shows some of the interaction between the premier industrial and banking families of Belgium. Although it was tighter in previous decades, before the nouveau riche and foreign interests mixed in, Belgium's economy is still controlled by a small oligarchy of aristocratic families centered around the royal court.

Societe Generale: Boel; Davignon; Janssen; Lippens; de Merode; Saxe-Coburg; Solvay

Friends of Europe *: Davignon; Janssen; Solvay

GBL: Desmarais; Frere; Lambert; de Launoit; Lippens; Vastapane

Fortis: Davignon; Janssen; Lippens; Selliers de Moranville

Sofina: Boel; Davignon; Janssen

Finasucre: Boel; Lippens

UFB, Solvac & Solvay: Boel; Davignon; Janssen; van Miert; Selliers de Moranville; Solvay

*Involvement of the families over the years in major banks and corporations. *Not a company, but still interesting

Besides the royal family, Viscount Etienne Davignon is probably the most well known of this group internationally. Although he comes from a less influential family than the others that are listed, Davignon might well be the most influential person of mainland Europe in the globalization process, with a particular focus on integrating Europe along the lines of Anglo-Saxon liberal policies. Besides his positions in the companies above, Davignon has held (or still holds) the following positions:

• first president of the International Energy Agency (IEA)
• director of Kissinger Associates and good friend of Henry Kissinger
• director of Minorco/Anglo-American Corporation
• vice-president of the European Commission
• co-founder of the European Round Table of Industrialists with someone who at different times worked for the Rockefellers, Kissinger, Rothschilds and Lazard bank
• co-founder and president of the Association for the Monetary Union of Europe
• chairman of CSR Europe (European business network)
• founder of the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation
• chairman of the EU-Japan Business Dialogue
• co-founder and president of Friends of Europe
• director of the European Institute
• allegedly a former governor of Ditchley
• chairman of the Royal Institute for International Relations (Belgian version of RIIA)
• member of the US Council on Foreign Relations
• member of the Trilateral Commission
• honorary chairman of Bilderberg

One of Davignon's closest sidekicks in business and the globalization process is Count Maurice Lippens, whom he really got to know in the late 1980s when both ran Societe Generale. Together they also ran the Belgian branch of the Dutch-Belgian Fortis Bank and they set up SN Brussels Airlines. Maurice visited Bilderberg in 2000, 2002, and 2006 and has become an annual visitor of the Trilateral Commission in recent years. About these meetings he stated:

"I have never visited DAVOS and think it's one big carnival. I receive the membership lists and can, if I want to, call up anyone I'm interested in. I like to visit Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission. Bilderberg is intense. There one has to work from the early morning to the late evening. The Round Table of Industrialists is interesting, but I'm not a member because I'm not an Industrialist. Talking about the future of the world is a difficult thing by the way. I do like to listen and network in Washington with the Trilateral Commission. You'll hear about interesting trends from first hand." (184)

Now, why is all this important you ask? Well, for starters because the Lippens family appears all over the X-Dossiers. X1, X2, X4, and two anonymous letters all name Maurice Lippens and his brother Leopold, the long time mayor of Knokke, as vicious child abusers, not only involved in regular rape, but also in the snuff network (185). Additionally, a relative of them, Count Francois Lippens, the honorary consul general of Belgium, appears somewhere deep in the Dutroux dossier:

"Transmitted to examining magistrate Mr. LANGLOIS in Neufchâteau, his dossier 86/0/96 [April 22, 1998]... Annex 161. A note on the existence of a SNUFF network of which Mr. GLATZ of the CIDE would have had knowledge and in which one would find a certain François LIPPENS, who is close to the mayor of Knokke, whose name is often mentioned in very horrible activities. I conducted no verification or crosscheck." (186)

Pictures of Etienne Davignon and Maurice Lippens at Bilderberg, superimposed on extracts (and a picture) from the X-Dossiers. Davignon is chair of Bilderberg. According to various direct and indirect statements they are blackmailed with pictures and video of their escapades. As pretty much the premier driving force behind the European Union and its relationship with the United States (not to mention Japan), having Davignon on a leash certainly is much more convenient than any head of state.

Etienne Davignon is another person whose name comes up in the X-Dossier, although he has not been implicated to the extent of the Lippens family. X2, the police officer, apparently was the only one to mention him:

"Parties with underage girls in the Cromwel hotel in Knokke. Present: Delvoie - Karel - X2 - Lippens - Van Gheluwe - Etienne Davignon. 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." (187)

X2 speaks of two Karels in her testimony. The first one is a high official in a Brussels court, whose mistress she was. The other one is Dr. Karel van Miert (188), who briefly appeared in the (business families) table above. Karel is a well known Socialist politician from Flanders. His biography includes:

• Member of the European Parliament from 1979 to 1985 and from 1989 to 1994.
• Went to Bilderberg in 1993.
• Vice president of the advisory council of the European Policy Centre, a liberal globalist institution with such extremely influential advisors as Peter Sutherland, Max Kohnstamm and Lord Kerr of Kinlochard.
• Member of the Brussels Freemasonry lodge Erasmus and a member of the Grand Lodge of Belgium.
• President of Nyenrode Business University from 2000 to 2003.
• Formerly an advisor to the Rabobank, one of the largest banks in the Netherlands.
• Joined the board of Anglo-American Corporation in 2002, and is a member of the Audit and Nomination Committees.
• Succeeded Etienne Davignon as a director of Solvay in 2003.
• Member of the Advisory Board of La Maison de l'Europe of Bibliothèque Solvay.
• Member of the supervisory boards of German utility giant RWE, Philips NV, Munich Re and Vivendi Universal.
• Member of the advisory boards of Goldman Sachs, Eli Lilly, and Agfa-Gevaert.
• Director of Carrefour Belgium and Wolters Kluwer (large Dutch publisher).
• Director of De Persgroep (The Press Group), a media corporation that owns newspapers and news magazines like Het Laatste Nieuws, De Morgen (ironic, as this paper exposed the whole X-Dossiers), De Tijd and Het Parool. It owns about 30-40 percent of the magazines on the market in Flanders (Dutch-language Belgium).

Who else in the table above is mentioned in the X-Dossiers? Take the de Merode family, for instance. Prince Alexandre de Merode was mentioned by both Nathalie W. (189) and X4 (190) as a central player in the Satanic aspect of the child abuse and -murder network. Additionally, X2, who was spared the worst abuse, mentioned having been in the presence of the "Merode brothers" (apparently Prince Baudouin de Merode, a Knight of Malta, and his younger brother Lionel) together with a whole bunch of the worst aristocratic abusers (191). We will get back to this family.

Charles De Selliers De Moranville, apparently a lawyer in Brussels, appears in a document of the X-Dossiers, although what exactly he has been accused of is not clear. The following text could be found in the summary of PV 103.204/97:

"While doing work at Rue de Neufchâtel 62 in St. Gilles [Brussels; only a few blocks away from Charles' office] the witness noticed the existence of an almost finished subterranean bunker (in 01/96). A tunnel was concealed behind one of the walls. He was surprised by a conversation in which a lady said "the children will be well here."

Because of the background of this family, its connections to alleged abusers, and a rumor going around the net that Charles has been accused on another occasion (192), it has been included in this article. Charles' name appears in a column that lists the accused mixed in with a few victims. Charles doesn't seem to have the background of a victim, as members of De Selliers De Moranville family can be found in the Jesuits, Cercle de Lorraine, Banque Privée Edmond de Rothschild in Genève, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, Fortis, Solvay, and Coca-Cola Belgium.

Did you already notice how Solvay seems to come up a lot? Etienne Davignon, Karel van Miert and Guy De Selliers De Moranville were all directors of this company. But there's more. The Boëls and Janssens, both major shareholders in Solvay, were accused of trade in drugs and children in 1999, aside from the X-Dossiers (193). Francoise Dehaye, whose husband was named by X2 as being part of the abuse network (194), is a quality and innovation manager at Solvay. The gamekeeper and-or woodsman of La Hulpe, the castle of the Solvay family, has been accused of being a violent child abuser (195). And how about the strange statements about Chateau des Amerois, owned by the Solvay family, which also appeared in the Dutroux dossier? (196)

The Belgian royal family has been implicated on several occasions. X2 spoke about a girl she had known who had been murdered, and how this girl told her about the domain of Princess Liliane de Rety ("a madwoman") where children were buried (197). Liliane was the second wife of King Leopold III (d. 1983) and lived until her death in 2002 at Chateau d'Argenteuil. In 2004, the Delwart family, shareholders of Solvay, bought the domain (198)

From personal experience, X2 mentioned having seen Prince Laurent, the brother of Belgium's present crown prince. Laurent apparently was more interested in masturbating at child abuse orgies than taking part in the actual abuse (199).


X3 implicated Prince Charles (1903-1983), the second son of King Albert I; King Baudouin (1930-1993), the eldest son of King Leopold III; and either King Albert I or II. Unfortunately, X3 spoke about experiences from the 1950s and early 1960s, which meant that none of the other X-Dossier witnesses could confirm aspects of her story. Two of her primary abusers, Paul Vanden Boeynants and Charly De Pauw, had already appeared in the Pinon file of the early 1980s; the same is true for King Albert II (200). Additionally, part of the details of the abuse described by X3, although recognizable, can be a bit hard swallow (the scale and setting), all making her testimony hard to use without more backup from other witnesses. In X3's support, however, she was a well-respected person in the support community for abused women and children, and her interviewers refused to write down most of what she said. A few excerpts from a summary written about X3's testimonies:

"The car stopped on a parterre before the house. [It] was surrounded by a park. Two supervisors were present: Ralf and Walter. The children were taken to a tower made of natural stone and with a wooden door... an underground [corridor] left from the turret toward the cellars... without light... going downward. 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. The spectacle room has a strong odor of excrements of dogs. Dogs can roam free in the garden... 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..."

"Childbirth by a teenager through a caesarean section. Baby pulled out of the stomach and given to the dogs by Polo. She saw the dismembered mother again in the exposition of the dead... She has to eat the human flesh cut from the bodies. She has to eat pieces of children (fingers) served in gelatin. Good taste -- slightly sugary. It provoked an enormous sensation of hunger and thirst. Drinking blood relieved the sensation of thirst... She speaks of another murder that she committed on a girl of 3-5 years under the threat that it would be her brother who would be killed. She opened up the girl from the vagina to the breastbone with a knife. She gave the internal organs to the dog. Someone cut off the head. The child was devoured by the dogs... Murder of a young teenage woman who was opened up by Vanden Eynde... The baby shouted in the mother's stomach. She resewed the stomach with the baby inside..."

"Luxurious house with a surrounding wall and gate... non illuminated twisting path. There were some stables. Parterre with flowers. Hall of entry = cream-colored and blue tiles -- red carpeting. Walls made of marble with a teenage picture of [later king] Baudouin on it. She spent a whole night with Baudouin - fellatio and sodomy. Presence of maid... In this house there were many servants... She remembers one evening when she had been smeared with cream before being brought to the table on a tray. She had been licked off and raped... 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. A certain Solange [a female name] has been enucleated [what exactly?] with a spoon by her and an old lady." (201)

Besides the X-Dossier accusations there have at least been two other instances in which high-level members of Belgium society have been accused of doing terrible things with children.

By far the most prominent occasion was in May 2004 by The Sprout, an English-language magazine located in Brussels that reports on EU affairs. They wrote an article claiming that Julie and Melissa had been killed in a snuff movie and that a number of prominent people had been present at this murder. However, even though plenty of questions remain about the kidnapping and murder of Julie and Melissa, the evidence the Sprout came up with, in the opinion of this author, was not very strong and their idea of posting pictures of the bodies of Julie and Melissa on the magazine's cover was highly questionable, even if these bodies were to show that the girls had not simply died from starvation. Again in the opinion of this author, the pictures do not show a whole lot, and neither do other pictures that can be found in the (final) Dutroux dossier.

The other case happened in 1999 and centered around the person of Count Yann de Meeus d'Argenteuil. This count came from an influential family who were (and possibly are) significant shareholders in Societe Generale. In fact, Count Ferdinand de Meeus (1798-1861), "the Rothschild of Belgium", became governor of Societe Generale in 1830 and helped King Leopold to acquire control over the bank from the Princes of Orange.

Count Yann's biography is less prestigious than the average member of this family and is characterized by pedophilia and psychotherapy. On September 12, 1999, while locked away in a mental institution, unsuccessfully trying to get out, Count Yann drew up a list of personalities he accused of being involved in the trafficking of children and drugs. He sent this list to investigating agencies in Belgium, France and the United States, but apparently nothing was done. On November 11, 2000, Count Yann committed suicide. (202)

At first glance the list doesn't seem very interesting, because none of the names match those that appeared in the X-Dossiers. However, it must be stated that there are a huge amount of private and business links between the men on Count Yann's list and those in the X-Dossiers.

• Take members of the Lambert, Boël, Janssen and de Launoit families which appear on Count Yann's list. They share boards, private clubs and foundations with Davignon, the Lippens and De Selliers De Moranville families. The Boëls have been to the European Round Table, the Janssens to Bilderberg, the Trilateral Commission, the CFR, the Atlantic Institute if International Affairs, the Royal Institute for International Relations, etc. Particularly chilling is the involvement of the Lippens, de Launoit and Selliers De Moranville families in the Belgian Kids Foundation for Pediatric Research. (203)

• Take Philippe de Patoul, who worked at Banque Lambert (GBL, where many of the accused reside) and in 1995 set up the TNN Trust & Management Ltd. with Bernard de Merode. Bernard de Merode married the sister of Baron de Bonvoisin (204), one of the abusers in the testimonies of X1 and X2, and now works at Risk Analysis, a firm headed by two retired but formerly very senior MI5 agents (205). Bernard's family, as already stated, features quite prominently in the X-Dossiers also.

• Take examining magistrate Benoit Dejemeppe, who was a protege of Melchior Wathelet, who in turn was a protege of Paul Vanden Boeynants, both allegedly extremely violent child abusers. Dejemeppe is quite a controversial judge who in 1996 tried to separate Annie Bouty's dossier from the Dutroux child abuse dossier through Georges Marnette (206). It must also be stated, however, that Dejemeppe was responsible for locking up Count Yann.

• Take magistrate Yves de Prelle de la Nieppe, who's a member of a rather small club named Carnet Mondain. Other members of the club are Charles de Selliers de Moranville and wife (accused of involvement in the child abuse network), Jacques G. Jonet (accused of covering up the Pinon Affair; once Otto von Habsburg's political secretary; through his involvement with Mouvement d'Action pour l'Unite Europeenne he came at CEPIC and de Bonvoisin's PDG headquarters), Baron Guibert de Viron (a family member is accused of trafficking drugs and children, and is married into the de Caters family which has been accused in the X-Dossiers), and Countess Rodolphe d'Ursel (a family member is accused of being part of the abuse and snuff network of Baron de Bonvoisin, to whom this family is close). (207)

• Take Axel Vervoordt, a well known art dealer and alleged pedophile (208) whose art castle is located next to a domain where X1 said child murders took place (209); or Prince Alexandre of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, the stepson of the earlier mentioned Princess Liliane de Rethy; or Chevalier Pierre Bauchau, the former president and chairman of the African Banque Belgolaise, majority owned by the Fortis Bank of such figures as Maurice Lippens, Etienne Davignon, Baron Daniel Janssen and Guy de Selliers de Moranville.

To summarize this part of the article: as for the families described above, by far the most convincing evidence has been gathered against the Lippens family, of which three members have been accused by about half a dozen witnesses of the same type of extreme abuse. Evidence against the Princes of Merode has also been stacking up. Besides testimonies from X4, Nathalie W. and supplementary information from X2, it's also telling that the de Merode family is intermarried with de Bonvoisins, a very notorious family on which we still need to focus. Who places trust in the testimony of X2 will additionally hold serious suspicions against such individuals as Etienne Davignon, Karel van Miert and Princess Liliane de Rethy (or the whole royal family). As for the De Selliers De Moranville family, there remains a lack of detail in the accusations against them. The same goes for the Solvay family, in which case we're talking about circumstantial evidence anyway, albeit quite a lot. And last and certainly least, the accusations of Count Yann de Meeus d'Argenteuil; they might have been interesting and insightful to this author to identify Belgium's aristocracy, but there's no denying that without additional research they remain quite unreliable.

The accused in (private) intelligence and politics

Two of the most prominent names in the X-Dossiers are Paul Vanden Boeynants and Baron Benoit de Bonvoisin.

Vanden Boeynants was accused by X1, X3 and X4 of being a violent child abuser and-or a person involved in hunts on children (210). Nathalie W. claimed to have seen Vanden Boeynants at the Dolo (211), the favorite club of Nihoul, while X2 testified she had seen Vanden Boeynants' private driver there, Henri Bil, talking to one of Belgium's most notorious gangsters, Madani Bouhouche (212). X1 has named both Bil and Bouhouche as child abusers (213). On a lesser note, Vanden Boeynants' name also appeared in the Pinon file of the 1980s (214) and in Maud Sarr's TV testimony in February 1990 (215), in which his name came up alongside a DEA-trained gendarme general with whom he once ran a massive drug importing operation (216). Both the Pinon and Maud Sarr cases were about a prostitution network in which minors were used to blackmail high officials.

X1 and X2 mentioned de Bonvoisin as one of the most sadistic abusers in the network (217). One of his sisters married Count Herve d'Ursel (218), who has been accused by X1 of involvement in the snuff and ritual abuse network (219). His other sister is married to the earlier mentioned Bernard de Merode, an intelligence-connected family which has been accused of child abuse and Satanism by X4 and Nathalie W. (220) X2 mentioned having been at a meeting organized by her pimp, at which de Merode, d'Ursel and de Bonvoisin families were all present, together with the Prince and Princess of Chimay (221). According to X2, hunts on children were organized in the woods of Chateau de Chimay (222).

1986, Paul Vanden Boeynants (left) and Baron de Bonvoisin (right), the two pillars of fascist subversion in Belgium in the 1970s and 1980s. Both have been accused of child abuse, -torture and -murder. The driver and confidante of Vanden Boeynants, who also stands accused, stated that he "understood" that Nihoul was the "right hand" of de Bonvoisin (PV 39.027). Nihoul certainly knew Vanden Boeynants and was very active in the political party "VdB" and "BdB" ran, the PSC with its fascist CEPIC think tank.

It might come as a surprise, but Belgium has a rather rich conspiracy history. In the past 20 years, a lot of pages have been devoted to reports of high level involvement in the planning of coups, false flag operations, prostitution networks, pedophilia and drug dealing. Officially, all the individual scandals had nothing to do with each other and above all, had nothing to do with a fascist underground. In reality, this fascist underground is key to understanding the full version of events.

A good way to start this story is with the politician Paul Vanden Boeynants, who represented the Parti Social Chretien (PSC) in Parliament from 1949 to 1979. In 1961, Vanden Boeynants became chairman of the PSC, and from 1966 to 1968 he was prime minister of Belgium. From 1972 to 1978, he was defense minister of Belgium, followed in 1979 with another brief stint as prime minister.

There was nothing "social" about Vanden Boeynants' ideas, however. While being educated by the Jesuits in the 1930s, he became a prominent follower of Leon Degrelle, head of the fascist Rex party. Although he didn't join the collaboration during World War II, Vanden Boeynants did seek contact with the Flemish-nationalists in the late 1940s, at the time still a movement that was heavily persecuted for having worked with the Nazis. In 1949, Vanden Boeynants, together with the intelligence-connected, pro-colonialist journalist Jo Gerard, set up the Committee for the Revival of the PSC, which turned out to be successful: Vanden Boeynants and Gerard became top players in the new PSC party. At the same time that these two men revived the PSC, they also ran a Red-scare campaign, mirroring the one of Senator Joseph McCarthy in the US. In 1955, Vanden Boeynants set up a think tank within the PSC to neutralize its labor union wing. Around this time, he met up with the intelligence-connected aristocrat Baron Benoit de Bonvoisin, who also became active in the PSC.

Over the next several decades Paul Vanden Boeynants and Baron de Bonvoisin became pillars of the fascist underground in Belgium. The organizations they founded were later named as having played a key role in the effort to destabilize Belgium, the objective being to bring in a stronger government that more effectively could counter the "KGB subversion" of labor unions and left-wing political parties. These operations were planned since at least 1972 (223) and continued until at least the mid 1980s. A brief timeline follows:

• In 1969, Vanden Boeynants set up Cercle des Nations with a number of his political allies, including Baron de Bonvoisin and Paul Vankerkhoven (secretary-general of Otto von Habsburg's and Alfredo Sanchez Bella's CEDI; founder of the Belgian branch of the WACL, also in 1969). Cercle des Nations was a private, aristocratic club, which started out with about 80 members who generally were royalist, staunchly anti-communist, pro-Nato, pro-European integration and highly fascist. Examples of the Cercle's fascist tendencies include the April 1970 reception in honor of the fascist colonels that ruled Greece, the January 1976 celebration of the 10th anniversary of Papa Doc's Haitian dictatorship, and its magazine's continuous support for the apartheid in Africa, and the dictatorships of Pinochet, Franco and Salazar. The Cercle has been tied to organized crime and more than a few of its most prominent members have been accused of child abuse and child murder. Think, for instance, of Baron de Bonvoisin, Paul Vanden Boeynants, Jean-Paul Dumont, Count Herve d'Ursel, Roger Boas, Charly De Pauw, Guy Mathot, Ado Blaton, General Rene Bats, Philippe Cryns and the de Merode family. (224)

• In 1971, Paul Vanden Boeynants, with funding from Baron de Bonvoisin, set up Nouvel Europe Magazine (NEM). Around this magazine a number of NEM-Clubs were organized where fascist militants could meet each other.

• In 1972, Vanden Boeynants and de Bonvoisin founded CEPIC, a clandestine think tank which represented a renewed effort to neutralize the leftists elements within their PSC party. Vankerkhoven once again was one of the co-founders.

• In 1973, the fascists of the NEM clubs founded their own militant paramilitary group: Front de la Jeunesse (FJ). Francis Dossogne, a paid advisor of Baron de Bonvoisin, was appointed head of FJ.

• The Public Information Office (PIO), a joint private-military intelligence group headed by Major Jean-Marie Bougerol, was founded in 1974. Bougerol was a member of SDRA8 -- the heart of the Belgian stay-behind network -- which specialized in combat and sabotage, parachute jumping and maritime operations. He gave orders to the head of Front de la Jeunesse, Francis Dossogne. Vanden Boeynants and Baron de Bonvoisin had been responsible for Bougerol's appointment and they could often be found at PIO headquarters. To show how fascist he really was, Bougerol travelled with CEPIC director Bernard Mercier to Spain in 1975 to attend the funeral of Franco. (225)

• In 1977, PIO recruited Paul Latinus (226), a Nazi who in turn had been recruited by the US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) in 1967 and had later been trained by NATO (227). His career was boosted by letters of recommendation of several CEPIC directors (228). In 1978, Latinus became a member of the Front de la Jeunesse and in 1981, after the activities of the Front were exposed, he was given permission by Dossogne to create yet another Nazi militia: the Westland New Post. WNP's head of security became the fascist murderer Marcel Barbier (229), a Wackenhut employee (230).

A section within Front de la Jeunesse was named Group G, and consisted solely of gendarmerie officers. Reported members of this group were Paul Latinus (Nazi; recruited by the DIA in 1967, age 17; trained by NATO; reserve lieutenant with the Air Force; paid informant of State Security; recruited as an intelligence agent by PIO in 1977; recommended everywhere by the CEPIC leadership; member Front de la Jeunesse; founder Westland New Post (WNP) in 1981; named as one of the leaders of Group G; suicided in 1984), commandant Leon Francois (invited by the US Army's CID in 1969; educated by the DEA; received by President Nixon; secretary of the International Drug Enforcement Association; founded the gendarmerie's National Bureau for Drugs (NBD) in the 1972-1975 period with Paul "VdB" Vanden Boeynants and CIA support, and became the NBD's initial head; always present at the border when a new large shipment of marijuana and cocaine of VdB's company was smuggled into Belgium; leading member of the subversive and fascist Group G, together with DEA agent Frank Eaton; provided the CIA chief in Belgium with intelligence about leftists and other dissident groups; accused in 1990 by prostitute Maud Sarr of involvement in orgies with minors, together with Paul Vanden Boeynants and Jean Depretre (both accused by other sources as well); one of his successors at the NBD, general Beaurir was also accused of pedophilia and was also part of the CEPIC circle), DEA agent Frank Eaton (his friend, pilot and DEA agent Jean-Francois Buslik, was tied with his friend Madani Bouhouche to a number of assassinations), Martial Lekeu, Bernard Devillet (former gendarme officer and friend of Lekeu; judicial police officer; protected by Reyniers, Marnette and Dejemeppe as soon as he was questioned about his involvement in Group G) and Didier Mievis (BOB officer who recruited for Dossogne's Front de la Jeunesse; present at the FJ training camps). Group G was part of wider operation to infiltrate and subvert the Belgian state. Similar compartmented cells were located in the Army, the Universite Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), the Royal Military School, the Mobile Legion, the Special Intervention Squadron (Diana Group), the narcotics section of the BOB and different other branches of the Gendarmerie. There's very little information available about all these groups. (231) In addition to its efforts to infiltrate law enforcement and the military, Front de la Jeunesses also organized training camps in the Ardennes. Fascists like Jean-Francis Calmette (joined the terrorist OAS, which tried to assassinate de Gaulle and destabilize Algeria; self-defense instructor of Diana Group recruits; director of Wackenhut Belgium until 1981; head of security of the annual ball of the PSC in 1980, headed by Paul Vanden Boeynants at the time; member of Westland New Post), the later local Wackenhut director who also recruited Barbier, were instructors at these camps.

The fascist network that Vanden Boeynants, de Bonvoisin and their associates had carefully built up had to absorb a severe blow in May 1981 when excerpts of a confidential State Security memo were published by De Morgen. The memo explained the role of CEPIC, and more specifically Baron de Bonvoisin and Jean Bougerol, in cultivating a fascist underground in Belgium.


"It was determined that certain members of the board of the C.E.P.I.C. (x) in the past have lent their cooperated to the publication and the editorial office of NEM, were part of the NEM-clubs of the F.J. [Front de la Jeunesse] and maintained contact with board members or supporters of the two latter mentioned groups.

Amongst others, it concerns: Jean Breydel, secretary-general of the C.E.P.I.C., Benoit de Bonvoisin, treasurer of the C.E.P.I.C., Joseph (Jo) Gerard, Paul Van Kerkhoven, Joseph Franz and Bernard Mercier [PEHI note: the most prominent, Paul Vanden Boeynants, has been left out].

The board, the administration and the editorial office of the NEM, which has been published under this name since 1971 by the "Compagnie Internationale des Editions Populaires" (C.I.D.E.P.), is located at no. 5 of the Dekenstraat in Brussels... Furthermore, at this address was located the secretariat of the 1972 founded NEM-clubs, as well, until 1978, the seat of F.J....

The seat of C.E.P.I.C. is located at no. 39 of the Belliardstraat in Brussels. This building also contains the Belliard auditorium, the seat of "Mouvement d'Action pour l'Unite Europeenne" (xx), just as the offices of the "Societe de Promotion et de la Distribution Generale" (P.D.G.), supervised, through a go-between, by Benoit de Bonvoisin...

The NEM is supported by Benoit de Bonvoisin, who pays the rent of the in the Dekensstraat located offices and hires the editor in chief as an advisor... Francis Dossogne, head of the F.J., was paid in the same way, until he left the NEM.

The partnership P.D.G., and consequently de Bonvoisin, through a go-between finances the magazine "INFOREP" which claims to be a "daily paper for party leaders", but in reality is a bi-language magazine with strong anti-communist leanings. From 1976 to 1978 its editor in chief was Major Jean Bougerol, a higher career officer working for the headquarters of the domestic armed forces [PEHI note: not to mention, head of PIO]. Jean Bougerol has spoken at lectures organized by the NEM-clubs... This officer, who keeps in close contact with Bernard Mercier, board member of the C.E.P.I.C., was mentioned as one of the organizers of the transport from Antwerp to the seat of the C.E.P.I.C. in Brussels of a wanted neo-nazi terrorist. This person had to be taken by Bernard Mercier to a domain in the Ardennes belonging to de Bonvoisin and subsequently to France. The German was intercepted by State Security during the trip from Antwerp to Brussels...

According to unverifiable sources the F.J. would have approached several foreign governments and opposition-movements for financial support." (232)

Although the publishing of this memo ended the public career of Baron de Bonvoisin and resulted in the disbanding of CEPIC, the underground network of fascists remained operational. It would be tied to the violent Gang of Nijvel robberies from 1982 to 1985 and the Cellules Communistes Combattantes (CCC) bombings in 1984 and 1985. Several men from this fascist network would give a few hints about how their clandestine operation was used by unknown higher ups, at least one of them being US intelligence.

"Around 1981, Paul Latinus testified more than once that he worked for the American intelligence services. Also his assistant, Marcel Barbier, claimed to work for an international organization of which he never wanted to give the name... On top of that, Paul Latinus testified in 1983 that his organization, the WNP, to which Libert, Barbier and others belonged, worked for an unnamed allied power and countered the Soviet infiltration in Belgium." (233)

WNP member Michel Libert stated:

"One received orders. We can go back to, say, 1982. From 1982 to 1985. There were projects."

"'[I was told:] You, Mr. Libert, know nothing about why we're doing this. Nothing at all. All we ask is that your group, with cover from the gendarmerie, with cover from Security, carry out a job. Target: The supermarkets. Where are they? What kind of locks are there? What sort of protection do they have that could interfere with our operations? Does the store manager lock up? Or do they use an outside security company?'"

"We carried out the orders and sent in our reports: Hours of opening and closing. Everything you want to know about a supermarket. What was this for? This was one amongst hundreds of missions." [clearly hints to the Gang of Nijvel] (234)

Martial Lekeu was another person who gave certain details. He had been one of the earliest members of Group G and was a good friend of commandant Leon Francois and Paul Latinus. He gave his information in 1985 after having fled to the United States.

"When I joined the Gendarmerie I became a devout fascist. At the Diana Group I got to know people who had the same convictions as me. We greeted each other like the Nazis..."

"During the gatherings of the Front a plan was developed to destabilize Belgium and to prepare it for a non-democratic regime. This plan consisted of two parts: a cell political terrorism and a cell gangsterism. I worked in the cell gangsterism. I was one of the specialist who had to train young guys with rightist leanings, to knead them into a well trained gang prepared to do anything. After that I had to break all contact with them, so they could exist as an independent group and do robberies without them realizing they were part of a well-planned plot..."

"They'd have two plans. The first one was to organise gangs to do hold up of hostage, you know, killing; the second one was to organise the so called "Left movement" who will do a terrorist attempt just to make believe, make the population believe that these terrorist attempts were done by the Left." (235)

Like Libert, Lekeu strongly hinted to the fascist underground's involvement in the Gang of Nijvel affair, a series of violent robberies which occurred from December 1982 to November 1985. Coincidentally, during some of these robberies a number of individuals were killed that not too long before had belonged to CEPIC, had informed persons about a plan to subvert the state, or had been tied to sex parties, possibly with minors (236). Although never prosecuted, the person who was the most severely implicated in this affair was the fascist Jean Bultot.

Against the advice of State Security, Bultot had been appointed assistant director of the Sint-Gillis prison in Brussels. He acted as a liaison between several Nazi inmates and Belgian's fascist underground, for which he allegedly did some recruiting. Among his friends were Francis Dossogne, head of Front de la Jeunesse, and Jean-Paul "Pepe" Derijcke, the owner of the fascist Jonathan club, which was frequented by such men as Madani Bouhouche and Jean-Francis Calmette. Coincidentally, Derijcke was an associate of Jean-Michel Nihoul. They also had the same hobby: blackmailing people.

As for Bultot having been implicated in the Gang of Nijvel affair; when a stolen, burned out car belonging to the Gang of Nijvel was found on the side of the road, detectives also found a charred piece of paper with handwriting of Bultot's girlfriend, Claudine Falkenberg. At that time, Falkenburg worked at the ministry of Cecile Goor, a former member of the by then disbanded CEPIC. The piece of paper was a fragment of a February 1984 speech that Bultot had given at the Triton club during a shooting competition he had organized. This event had been patroned by Cecile Goor, secretary of state Pierre Mainil (also of CEPIC) and the Cultural Department of the US Embassy in Brussels. In that same month, also at the Triton, Bultot had given a demonstration to civil servants, law enforcement officers and intelligence agents about the use of kevlar in car doors. Coincidentally, traces of kevlar were found in the car doors of the burned out Gang of Nijvel car. These leads were never pursued. (237)

During a house search at Bultot's girlfriend inspectors found the telephone number of doctor Pinon in her address book. Nobody knows for sure what it did there, but it does seem as if over time the Pinon dossier has become a corrupted blackmail dossier for de Bonvoisin and his fascist friends (238). After Bultot had fled to Paraguay in 1986, in the aftermath of the murder on Juan Mendez (by Bouhouche), he decided to sing. The first thing he claimed was that the rumors of high level involvement in the Gang of Nijvel affair and a subsequent cover up were true. Then the disinformation came: State Security (the enemy of de Bonvoisin and Bultot) was behind it. Bultot went on to advise examining magistrate Freddy Troch to reopen the Pinon affair. One thing is for sure, a lot of politicians and magistrates would not have appreciated that.

A piece of evidence in the Gang of Nijvel case that is not directly linked to Bultot, is that the ammunition the robbers used was unique to the Special Intervention Squadron (Diana Group). Additionally, in one of the robberies the gang members used a tactic only seen in special police forces like Belgium's Diana Group, a fact which might result in flashbacks to Front de la Jeunesse and its Group G branch.

But wasn't the Front disbanded in 1981 after the memo of State Security? Well, it was, but it is known that Westland New Post, under the leadership of Latinus remained in existence until 1984. And like Dossogne, Latinus took orders from Jean Bougerol and his PIO intelligence group, if not the DIA directly (239).

Like Front de la Jeunesse, PIO was officially disbanded in 1981. However, Bougerol and his group did not disappear. PIO was absorbed into a completely private entity named the European Institute of Management (EIM). Bougerol was followed up by none other than long-time ambassador Douglas MacArthur II (240), a nephew of the famous general and by this time a very close friend and business associate of Sun Myung Moon (241). Like PIO had controlled Front de la Jeunesse, so EIM remained in control of Latinus' Westland New Post and likely several other aspects of the fascist underground. Marcel Barbier, head of security of WNP, joined EIM (242). Just as interesting, gendarme colonel Rene Mayerus became administrative-director of EIM (243). Mayerus had been a co-founder of the Special Intervention Squadron (Diana Group), and was a close acquaintance of Jean Bougerol, not to mention WNP members Bouhouche and Wackenhut director Calmette (244). He referred people looking for a security expert to WNP head Paul Latinus (245). After his retirement Mayerus was suspected of having spied on the BOB in Brussels for EIM and to have recruited Bougerol into EIM (246).

If this isn't enough to get someone at least interested in the links between the gendarmerie, the fascist underground, PIO-EIM and the Gang of Nijvel, then also consider that 11 months before the first Gang of Nijvel robbery, Bouhouche had been totally implicated (but not prosecuted) in a break in at the Diana Group in which two dozen of the newest rifles and pistols were stolen. Bouhouche and Bultot knew each other well at the time, as they both were prominent members of the Belgian Practical Shooting Association; some of the shooting events they organized included the theme 'warehouse panic'. (247)

As you can see, it's not really a surprise that Bultot and Bouhouche have always been primary suspects of alternative researchers of having been Gang of Nijvel members. The official investigators, in the first few years examining magistrate Jean Depretre and his sidekick Commandant Duterme, concluded that there were no links to a fascist underground. But what authority do their claims really have? Depretre had already been accused of covering up the Montaricourt-Israel case and soon thereafter of drawing unnecessary attention to the Pinon dossier (248). In 1996, X2 accused him of having been part of the child abuse network (249). Maud Sarr had already mentioned his name in 1990 (250). Commandant Duterme has now become notorious for having played a key role in covering up the X-Dossiers.

Baron Benoit de Bonvoisin's father, Pierre, visited the first Bilderberg conference, along with Paul van Zeeland. A regular line indicates interaction, an arrow at the end significant top-down influence.

By now it should be obvious that the CEPIC leadership played a key role in the whole effort to subvert the Belgian state. Not surprisingly, directors of CEPIC not only interacted a lot with PIO and the fascist underground, they also had numerous ties to foreign intelligence.

CEPIC director Jo Gerard, who had revived the PSC with Vanden Boeynants after WWII, had designed an assassination plot against Lumumba, soon after Congo had been granted independence from Belgium. His plan was canceled after it was decided that the CIA should take over. (251)

CEPIC director Paul Vankerkhoven had set up the Belgian branch of the World Anti-Communist League (the Ligue Internationale de la Liberte) and because of that was in close contact with the CIA, DIA, the NATO stay-behind network and the Moonies of Sun Myung Moon. In addition to his co-founding of Cercle des Nations and l'Institut Europeen de Developpement, he also was secretary-general of Otto von Habsburg's CEDI, making him a major player in the intelligence-ridden Vatican-Paneuropa network. (252)

CEPIC director Bernard Mercier had numerous intelligence connections. In Brussels he provided the WNP with a flat to house militants and sensitive dossiers. Mercier was a good friend of PIO head major Jean Bougerol. In 1975, they together had been to the funeral of Franco, the fascist dictator of Spain. Mercier also regularly met in Brussels with several "members of foreign intelligence agencies", and like Vankerkhoven, he is known to have been in contact with Belgian representatives of Aginter Press, the Portuguese stay-behind network set up and controlled by the CIA (253). Aginter Press had been founded by Yves Guérin-Sérac, a close associate of Otto Skorzeny and Stefano Delle Chiaie, two major players in the fascist underground of Europe. Serac had been one of the founders of the terrorist OAS, which had tried to assassinate De Gaulle and prevent the independence of Algeria (remember Calmette of FJ, WNP and Wackenhut, who had begun his career in the OAS?).

In May 1974, a number of documents had been retrieved from a hastily-abandoned Aginter Press headquarters. On one of these documents a text could be found which is perfectly in line with the words of Martial Lekeu and Michel Libert, not to mention numerous other statements from individuals once connected to the fascist "stay-behind" networks.

"In the first phase of our political activity we must create chaos in all structures of the regime. Two forms of terrorism can provoke such a situation: blind terrorism (committing massacres indiscriminately which cause a large number of victims), and selective terrorism (eliminate chosen persons). This destruction of the state must be carried out as much as possible under the cover of 'communist activities.' After that, we must intervene at the heart of the military, the juridical power and the church, in order to influence popular opinion, suggest a solution, and clearly demonstrate the weakness of the present legal apparatus... Popular opinion must be polarized in such a way, that we are being presented as the only instrument capable of saving the nation. It is obvious that we will need considerable financial resources to carry out such operations." (254)

CEPIC founder and treasurer Baron de Bonvoisin also had his share of intelligence connections. As mentioned, Francis Dossogne and his Front de la Jeunesse were completely dependent on his money. In late 1975 or early 1976, de Bonvoisin hosted a meeting at his castle where leading fascist militants from Belgium, Italy, France, Britain and Spain met with each other (255). Like Mercier and Vanden Boeynants, de Bonvoisin could regularly be found at PIO headquarters. Also, his good friend and security consultant André Moyen, who supported his campaign against the X-Dossiers, used to be an important player in the stay-behind network (256). De Bonvoisin has not only stated that he worked with US intelligence, Paul Vanden Boeynants and major Jean Bougerol's superior (General Roman) in countering Soviet subversion, but also that his US friends were largely responsible for getting his arch enemy, the anti-fascist head of State Security, to resign.

"Besides his political role within the CEPIC, Benoît de Bonvoisin exerted an influence in Zaïre [Congo; Belgian colony until 1960], firstly in the struggle against communism and secondly attempting to curb corruption, with friends from the American administration. Van den Boeynants assigned General Roman and Benoît on a number of missions in order to counteract the Soviet influence in Belgium... Through a number of people with whom he was in touch in the United States and France, B. de B felt it necessary to try and get the Belgian intelligence services under democratic control. He considered it urgent, since this was the only secret service to escape control... [bashes Albert Raes, head of Belgian intelligence] Largely because of B. de B, Raes was forced to resign in 1990... B. de Bonvoisin was highly regarded by the head of the French secret services, Alexandre de Marenches, but the latter had no esteem for Albert Raes... [bashes Albert Raes a bit more]... he [Raes] tried to associate B. de B with the extreme right, a trick often used by the Soviet secret services... Professor Lode Van Outrive concluded that: 'Several times the Americans tried to convince Raes to concentrate first and foremost on the Eastern block countries whereas he seemed more interested in targeting extreme right wing movements. This clearly bothered the Americans who got him to resign.'" (257)

Paul Vankerkhoven / CEPIC / Aginter Press; WACL; Habsburg network

The Habsburg network in this table is a reference to this person's central role in setting up and running what this author has been labeling the "Vatican-Paneuropa network". Besides the national branches of Opus Dei and the Knights of Malta, in Belgium this network consisted of such organizations as Mouvement d'Action pour l'Union de l'Europe (MAUE), l'Institut Europeen de Developpement, Académie Europeene des Sciences Politiques, Ordre du Rouvre, the Ligue Internationale de la Liberte (WACL) and Cercle des Nations. All these organizations had overlapping membership and were connected to other, equally reactionary organizations all over Catholic Europe. One of the most important branches in this extremely anti-communist network is the privatized, intelligence-oriented, discussion group Le Cercle, which for over 50 years has brought together questionable individuals connected to European and US intelligence agencies (including CIA heads Casey and Colby, respectively belonging to the Knights of Malta and Opus Dei). It was set up by French prime minister Antoine Pinay and the fascist intelligence agent Jean Violet in the 1950s. Otto von Habsburg acted as a sponsor of Violet. (259)

Interestingly, Violet is known to have been a member of Cercle des Nations, meeting here with such men as Baron de Bonvoisin, Paul Vanden Boeynants, Paul Vankerkhoven, de Merode family, lawyer Jacques Jonet and other anti-communist radicals (260). It's probably no surprise to learn then that most, if not all, of these men, including Violet, belonged to Opus Dei and the Knights of Malta (261). It's also known that Violet, Vankerkhoven and Jonet worked closely with Otto von Habsburg (262).

Opus Dei has come up more than once in Belgium conspiracy history. BOB officers Gerard Bihay and Guy Dussart informed congressional investigators during a closed session that they had been provided information by two nobles belonging to Opus Dei. These two informed the officers that at least 9 members of Opus Dei were involved in a plan to subvert the Belgian state. Several meetings between the conspirators, which included gendarmerie general Fernand Beaurir (accused of incest and pedophilia) and Paul Vanden Boeynants, would have taken place at Castle Dongelberg, an Opus Dei retreat (263). Interestingly, in 1996, both X2 (264) and Nathalie W. (265) mentioned Dongelberg in their testimonies, referring to it as a location where children had been abused by members of the network. X4 has testified that members of Opus Dei had been among her most sadistic clients (266).

Besides de Bonvoisin and Vanden Boeynants, X1 also gave names and details of other persons who played a key role in the fascist network described above. De Baets and Hupez had received stacks of private notes of X1 which she had written up to 6 years before the affair. In one of these notes, which in this particular case could actually have been written after the Dutroux affair broke out, X1 described how she had been raped by a "gendarme officer" who always wore dark brown sunglasses. She remembered also having seen this gendarme officer in Humo magazine several years before her testimony. De Baets immediately thought about Madani Bouhouche, and because he already had suspicions about links to the old Gang of Nijvel dossiers, he gathered photographs of gendarme officers suspected of having played a role in this affair.

X1 was presented with 40 photographs, some showing real suspects, others from unrelated dossiers (267). After another long and psychologically challenging session, X1 had selected 8 pictures. Three of the selected men clearly were misidentified, as they have never been linked to the extreme-right or the Gang of Nijvel and had been added to the collection for no specific reason. Four other identifications made by X1 turned out to be far more intriguing. One of them was the person De Baets already suspected: Madani Bouhouche. The others were former gendarme officer Christian Amory, gendarme colonel Gerard Lhost and the earlier-mentioned gendarme colonel Rene Mayerus (268). According to the authors of 'The X-Dossiers':

"X1 identified Madani Bouhouche as the very violent driver of the BMW who took her to 'the factory' and Christian Amory as a sort of slave driver who brought her and her fellow victims to recording studios or parks where older men shot at hunted children. One of the colonels belonged to that group, X1 says. Her account about these kinds of hunting parties on human game, about which X2, X3, X4 and Nathalie W. later also speak, is by far the most controversial part of her testimony... One of the individuals that was recognized used to be a driver in a service [the Diana Group] that was headed by Lhost and was in the possession of heavy black BMWs [earlier reported having seen by X1]." (269)

"The factory" X1 regularly spoke about (see above) was a location, where besides regular abuse, snuff movies were shot. Vanden Boeynants' private driver Henri Bil, Baron de Bonvoisin, Annie Bouty, Michel Nihoul, Tony, the controversial lawyer Michel Vander Elst, former prime minister Wilfried Martens, examining magistrate Melchior Wathelet and lawyer Jean-Paul Dumont apparently all went to the ASCO factory to torture and abuse children (270). In November 1996, X1 took the investigators to the location she had described. On arrival, it turned out that the witness had been talking about the ASCO factory, located just outside Brussels. The description she had given matched, and coincidentally, ASCO was (and is) owned by the Boas family, which used to be close friends and business partners of the late Paul Vanden Boeynants (271). X1 mentioned having seen a "Roger" (272) at the factory, apparently the head of the Boas family who used to be a member CEPIC and Cercle des Nations.

Yes, even Madani Bouhouche and some of his associates appeared in the X-Dossiers, and not in the mildest parts either. As Bouhouche took orders from the WNP and FJ, who knows where things might lead. The accused Baron de Bonvoisin and Paul Vanden Boeynants controlled these networks from the Belgian/European side. The American controllers were the CIA, DIA, DEA and Wackenhut.

Following is a more detailed description of the men pointed out by X1:

Bouhouche was closely associated with Group G, Front de la Jeunesse, Westland New Post and the Diana Group. He has been accused of involvement in a number of assassinations and break-ins. In 1979, Bouhouche began preparations for a long-term operation to terrorize and extort a number of warehouses. Accomplices in this operation were Robert "Bob" Beyer (BOB), Christian Amory (BOB) Rene Tchang Wei Ling (brother of an important BOB officer), Juan Mendez, and apparently also Jean Bultot (273). This group is widely believed to have had something to do with the Gang of Nijvel. Whether this was the case or not, their operation was cancelled in 1986 after Bouhouche was arrested on suspicions of having murdered Juan Mendez. Confronted with testimonies of Christian Amory, Bouhouche admitted to his interrogators that recruiting Mendez had been an assignment given to him by the WNP leadership and that there was a political motive behind the attacks they had been planning (or, if they were behind the Gang of Nijvel, might actually have carried out) (274).

Additionally, Bouhouche appears to have been closely associated with Michel Nihoul. He went to the fascist Jonathan Club whose owner, Pepe De Rycke (committed suicide in 2001) was on good terms with Nihoul (275). Together with Beyer and Bultot he went to the prestigious Dancing Mirano's, where Nihoul also went (276). The Mirano became embroiled in a drug scandal in the 1980s, but accusations that its owner, Philippe Cryns, ran a child prostitution network were carefully ignored by the magistrates (277). When Bouhouche was arrested in 1986, he picked Jean-Paul Dumont as his legal representative. The earlier-mentioned Dumont, once a member of the CEPIC council, was on close terms with Nihoul, represented leading fascists as Francis Dossogne and Paul Latinus, and shared a law office with the lawyer of Alexis Alewaeters (of the Mirano scandal) and Marc Dutroux (278). As already mentioned, Dumont himself has been accused of child abuse on several occasions. In 1996, X2 testified that she had seen Bouhouche at the Dolo, Nihoul's favorite hang out, talking to Henri Bil (the confidant and private driver of Vanden Boeynants; X1 claimed Bil was one of her abusers who sometimes came to pick her up with Tony for abuse at ASCO) and being involved with some of the child abusers (279).

Christian Amory was a gendarme officer in the BOB section and was part of Bouhouche's criminal Nazi group to some day conduct a terror-extortion campaign against warehouses. He worked in the Walloon-Brabant cell that investigated the Gang of Nijvel and would later become a leading suspect in this case. Together with the Nazi Jean-Francis Calmette he was associated with the mercenary firm Contact in Brussels. Interestingly, in 2003, Amory was prosecuted with Baron Benoit de Bonvoisin and Pierre de Bonvoisin for having forged KGB documents to prove a "vast left-wing conspiracy" against de Bonvoisin involving State Security (280).

Mayerus has been discussed earlier. He was the administrative-director of EIM under MacArthur II, had been a co-founder of the Diana Group, and used to be a good friend of Madani Bouhouche, Jean-Francis Calmette (OAS; Diana Group; Front de la Jeunesse; WNP; Wackenhut; etc.) and PIO head Jean Bougerol. He was one of the more unknown suspects in the Gang of Nijvel case and his picture would have been virtually unknown to anyone in the public.

Gendarme colonel Gerard Lhost, another rather unknown suspect in the Gang of Nijvel case, was head of the Diana Group in the early 1980s. In early 1982, Lhost used his authority to acquire control over the investigation into the arms robbery at the Diana Group, of which Bouhouche would be the top suspect. By April, Lhost had effectively halted the investigation. Colleagues accused him of ignoring leads to the extreme right. Lhost actually knew a lot of fascists from the Front de la Jeunesse circles, and when he left the gendarmerie in 1985, he joined the Security Bureau of the European Commission. Here he teamed up with fascists as Pierre Eveillard (once worked in the cabinet of Paul Vanden Boeynants; his brother Christian was a police commissioner in Etterbeek who protected and visited the notorious Dolo), Robert Thomas (specialist in political violence; apparently ran his own intelligence group, trained members of Nazi organizations like Front de la Jeunesse and Westland New Post), Roland Maffioli (ex-member of the political section of the Brussels BOB, who helped infiltrating neo-nazi Paul Latinus into the State Security Service) and several others. (281)

Even though there are plenty of reasons to be suspicious of these men, it should be remembered that the accusations against Mayerus, Lhost, Amory and Bouhouche are less powerful than many other aspects of X1's testimony. Bouhouche was already Belgium's most famous gangster and his face had appeared in the media here and there. And unfortunately, neither the authors of the book 'The X-Dossiers', nor the Dutroux dossier summary, reported how many of the 40 pictures portrayed real suspects. X1 misidentified three, and possibly four pictures, which at best gives us a 60% accuracy rate. Even when one takes into account the psychological problems X1 had with looking at pictures, or the problems that come into play when trying to recognize someone from a picture (or from a long time ago), it would have been nice if other X-witnesses could confirm more aspects of this part of her testimony. However, seeing how the investigation proceeded, it's likely that most of them have never been asked about these men.

But even without the accusations against these four former gendarmerie officers, it appears that the X-Dossiers are intrinsically linked to earlier Belgian affairs. Whether it involves large scale drug trafficking, assassinations, subversion of state, or underground. abuse and snuff networks, the same individuals and organizations appear time and time again.

The US connection continued

In November 1986, San Francisco police had begun investigating claims of sexual abuse centering around the Army's Child Development Center at the Presidio of San Francisco. During the investigation, in August 1987, one of the girls ran into her abuser while on a shopping trip with her father. She froze, pointed to a person named Lt.-Col. Michael Aquino, and identified him as "Mikey". Mikey, with help of a member of the child day care center staff, had taken her off site to be abused at his home. During the following investigation, the girl could accurately point out the house of Aquino (282) and describe some of the interior details (283).

In October 1987, news of the Presidio molestings hit the local news and it was reported that at least 58 of 100 children who had visited the day care center showed physical and mental signs of sexual abuse (284). Some of the details that came out were that children had been tortured with needles (285) and that some had been forced to drink urine and eat feces (286). The parents sued the day care center for more than 60 million dollars (287), and as time went on, more and more claimed there was a cover up of the facts (288). Aquino was under investigation for a while, but never officially charged with anything (289). The case died a quiet death.

Nevertheless, Col. Aquino was an interesting character and apparently more relevant to the much later X-Dossiers than one would initially anticipate. Instead of having a European fascist connected to NATO and US intelligence, here you have an American fascist working for US intelligence who is touring NATO installations over in Europe. A biography:

Just after Aquino had finished his undergraduate studies in political science at the University of California at Santa Barbara he became a follower of Anton LaVey, and went on to become a high priest in the Church of Satan (290). He went to Vietnam in the late 1960s to become a psychological warfare expert (291). At some point, he served with the Green Berets (292) and in the 1970s he was a liaison officer to NATO in several European countries (293). While on tour visiting NATO installations in Europe, Aquino made a stop-over at Wewelsberg Castle, which, during WWII, used to be Heinrich Himmler's occult SS sanctuary. Aquino even managed to perform a Satanic ceremony in the castle's "Hall of the Dead" (294). In 1981, Aquino was a reserve attache to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) (295) and by 1986 he held a top-secret compartmentalized security clearance, which are given to individuals involved in programs that need to be even tighter controlled than regular top secret programs. He apparently needed this clearance for following studies at the National Defense University (296). At the time the investigation against him was launched, Aquino was a program analyst at the Army Reserve Personnel Center in St. Louis (297). In between all this, he was a licensed securities dealer and an employee of Merrill Lynch (298).

Lt.-Col. Michael Aquino, through US intelligence, NATO-Europe, fascism and occult Nazi rituals in Wewelsburg castle closer related to the X-Dossiers than one might initially think. One wonders, during his inspections of European NATO installations, did he meet with men involved with PIO, Front de la Jeunesse or the WNP, possibly even with Vanden Boeynants or Baron de Bonvoisin? It's far from impossible, especially because, according to victim-witness Paul Bonacci, Aquino's special project in Europe was the fascist underground (also Gladio?). In Belgium, who would have been better representatives of this underground than Vanden Boeynants or Baron de Bonvoisin, or at the very least one of their close associates in the military?

But this was not the last we heard about Aquino. In November 1988, federal investigators found out that $35 million had disappeared from a credit union that reported only to possess $2.5 million in assets. Within weeks of the affair, the local community was abuzz with rumors of a child prostitution network centering around the credit union's owner, Lawrence "Larry" King Jr., a person with highest level connections in Republican circles in both Nebraska and Washington D.C. Senator John W. DeCamp ultimately became the person who brought out the story of victim-witnesses as Alisha Owen, Loretta Smith, Paul Bonacci, Troy Boner and Danny King about life in these abuse networks. DeCamp wrote:

"Paul Bonacci and other child victims have given evidence in great depth on the central role of Lt. Col. Michael Aquino in this depravity. Aquino, alleged to have recently retired from an active military role, was long the leader of an Army psychological warfare section which drew on his "expertise" and personal practices in brainwashing, Satanism, Nazism, homosexual pedophilia and murder..."

"Paul Bonacci reports the following "Monarch"-related activities, often involving his commander at Offutt AFB, Bill Plemmons, and Lt. Col. Michael Aquino... Travel to Dresden in communist East Germany, where weapons were inspected. There and in the Federal Republic of Germany, the Monarch personnel were frequently neo-Nazis. This milieu is a special project of Lt. Col. Aquino, who was a West European advisor to the U.S. Chiefs of Staff. Paul Bonacci has extensive experience in the Aryan Nation and other White Supremacist cults..." (299)

In his book 'The Franklin Cover-Up', DeCamp explained that the Monarch project in some circles was the unofficial name of an extreme mind control network (hard to tell how much of this information was confirmed by his friend William Colby, the former CIA director). The basic idea was to use the alters of people suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) for specific military and intelligence purposes. Unfortunately, alternative personalities are only formed at a relatively young age and only under the most extreme stress, so most people wouldn't even think of carrying out this research. But the Nazis didn't mind, and it was apparently them who had laid the foundations of this research in some of their concentration camps.

"An account of the origin of the "Monarch" project has been compiled by those who have been debriefing MPD [same as DID] child-victims. Nazi experimentation in World War II concentration camps were said to have gone beyond simply insane physical tortures. They brainwashed people, for military and strategic purposes. After the war, Allen Dulles and other Western intelligence people brought Nazi doctors out for use in the United States. A teenaged concentration camp inmate named Greenbaum, who had participated to save himself, also came to the United States. Known later as "Dr. Green," [300; important note] he became a high-level brainwasher, and is widely represented in brainwashing programs with a distinctive Cabalistic magic theme."

"The killers in the Nazi camps were themselves trained and organized by psychiatrists and eugenicists, operating from the "T4" bureau. These psychiatrists had long been the pets of white supremacist British and American financier networks. At least some of these Nazi doctors were spirited out of Germany under the supervision of for Bank of England Governor Montagu Norman and Tavistock Institute Director John R.. Rees on behalf of the British government. Norman, personally an insane Theosophist who had been chief of the prewar pro-Nazi faction within England, and Rees organized postwar propaganda and continuing psychological warfare activities, and created "Orwellian" groupings within U.S. psychiatry and mental health fields." (301)

Although many details still need to be filled in, we've come full circle now. During the 1970s and 1980s, a number of mainly American investigators began to claim that there existed a highly-organized, post-WWII fascist underground, which appeared to be involved in drug running, gold smuggling, weapons trafficking and other subversive activities (Mae Brussel was one of the first and inspired many). The mainstream media generally ignored the claims of these investigators, but in the early 1990s, during the stay-behind affair (Gladio), it became clear that these investigators, at least to a large extent, had been right. The reason for the secrecy surrounding this underground network also became clear: it was ultimately controlled by US intelligence.

The stay-behind (Gladio) affair showed how since the end of WWII, the CIA and a number of military agencies have been setting up secret, anti-communist armies in most European countries. Even though there were plenty of regular anti-communist Army officers to pick from, Nazis and other fascists (like pro-colonialists) were appointed to run these clandestine armies instead, which undoubtedly had something to do with all the immoral operations that were to be carried out. In each country this US intelligence controlled network seems to have had the approval of the old pro-colonial aristocracy, which was usually centered around a royal court or a number of hard right political leaders.

Senator John DeCamp, pretty much about as credible as authors come, even though his work in Vietnam and his connections to Colby, to many will sound a little bit too much to be true. Nebraska state newspapers of the 1970s and 1980s frequently mentioned his name. His (incomplete) Who's Who: "state senator; b. Neligh, Nebraska, July 6, 1941... B.A., University Nebraska, J.D... married Ma Thi Nga, October 16, 1978... Member Nebraska Legislature, Lincoln, 1971– ; owner apartment complexes in Nebraska; Served to captain U.S. Army, 1968-70. Member Nebraska Bar Association Republican." Even though he gave the names of many alleged abusers (and child murderers), none of them have dared to take him to court. In fact, the person from this group who was picked to take on DeCamp, soon ended up in jail for child abuse. One major newspaper which wrote a hit piece on DeCamp and his book was soon forced to pay DeCamp "more than a dollar and less than a hundred thousand dollars" in damages. The newspaper also had to publish a retraction and state that DeCamp's research indeed had been sound.

As a result of the Kennedy assassination, quite a number of Americans became skeptical of the CIA and launched their own private investigations into this organization. In the following years and decades, various US investigators brought out more and more evidence that the CIA was involved in many things that couldn't stand the light of day. As stated, this included the recruiting of Nazis, infiltration of the domestic media, massive drug- and arms trafficking, organizing coups against legitimate governments, assassinations, false flag terrorist attacks and mind control research. Some of the most well known "rogue" CIA men (and associates) have been Ted Shackley, General John Singlaub, Thomas Clines, Carl Jenkins, David Morales, Raphael Quintero, Felix Rodriguez, Edwin Wilson, Richard Armitage, Albert Hakim, General Richard Secord, and Oliver North. This list is by no means complete, and even includes such former CIA directors as William Colby, William Casey and George Bush.

Of particular interest to this article is Edwin Wilson, who used to be a member of Shackley's "Secret Team". In 1980, Colonel Cutolo wrote an affidavit claiming that Wilson ran large scale surveillance operations in order to receive an advance warning of anyone trying to leak information about CIA drug trafficking operations. Electronic surveillance had been instituted against a number of Senators and Congressmen, numerous police officials, judicial figures and the Catholic cathedrals of New York and Boston. Besides regular surveillance, Wilson was also accused of selling the sensitive information he had acquired to companies that were part of the military-industrial complex, which they in turn used as leverage against Washington politicians to score contracts (302). According to Frank Terpil, the business partner of Wilson in supplying weapons and special forces to Khadaffi from 1976 to 1981, Wilson was involved in the actual blackmail operations.

"According to fugitive ex-CIA officer Frank Terpil, CIA-directed sexual blackmailing operations were intensive in Washington at about the time of the Watergate scandal. One of those operations, Terpil claims, was run by his former partner, Ed Wilson. Wilson's base of operations for arranging trysts for the politically powerful was, Terpil says, Korean agent Ton Sun Park’s George Town Club. In a letter to the author, Terpil explained that ‘Historically, one of Wilson’s Agency jobs was to subvert members of both houses [of Congress] by any means necessary... Certain people could be easily coerced by living out their sexual fantasies in the flesh... A remembrance of these occasions [was] permanently recorded via selected cameras... The technicians in charge of filming. . .[were] TSD [Technical Services Division of the CIA]... The unwitting porno stars advanced in their political careers, some of [whom] may still be in office." (303)

Although Terpil's claims are hard to verify, this still is a very interesting comment. Like Sun Myung Moon and his Unification Church, Park had close ties to the Korean Central Intelligence Agency (KCIA) and more importantly, the CIA and its partly privatized, anti-communist, fascist underground (304). Also, both Moon and Park have been tied to pedophile blackmail operations in the United States. Moon through the activities of his right-hand man, Col. Bo Hi Pak (305), and Park through his George Town Club's first president, Robert Keith Gray.

Gray rose to prominence in the late 1950s as secretary of Eisenhower's Cabinet. After leaving the White House he, for more than three decades, became a leading manager of Hill & Knowlton, one of the most influential Washington lobbying firms, especially during the Nixon and Reagan years. DeCamp noticed that Gray was the "closest friend in Washington" of Harold Anderson, a person accused by several victim-witnesses in the Franklin case of being a pedophile. Gray and his company were tied to the Iran-Contra affair and came out in support of Catholic priest Bruce Ritter, who was accused of pedophilia (306). This priest worked in partnership with Americares, which coordinated its aid missions with the CIA, the Vatican and the Reagan administration. According to DeCamp, Ritter and his Covenant youth organization were at the center of pedophile ring that procured children from South-America. Additionally, Gray used to be a business partner of Edwin Wilson in the years before the latter was arrested for having sold massive amounts of C4 to Khadaffi. Decamp:

"Said to be Harold Anderson's "closest friend in Washington," Gray is also reportedly a specialist in homosexual blackmail operations for the CIA... Gray's associate Wilson was apparently continuing the work of a reported collaborator of Gray from the 1950's—McCarthy committee counsel Roy Cohn, now dead of AIDS. According to the former head of the vice squad for one of America’s biggest cities, 'Cohn's job was to run the little boys. Say you had an admiral, a general, a congressman, who did not want to go along with the program. Cohn’s job was to set them up, then they would go along. Cohn told me that himself.'" (307)

It's becoming routine in this article, but Cohn, a rabid anti-communist sadist, has also been tied to the CIA's fascist underground. According to a 1954 news report, Cohn and his aide David Schine had met up with Spanish members of an international underground Nazi network while on a spy-hunting trip in Europe. Some of the leading members of this network, according to the newspaper, were Col. Otto Skorzeny, Hjalmar Schacht and Werner Naumann (former State Secretary in Goebbels' Ministry of Propaganda; among the last to see Martin Bormann) (308). It's hardly a secret these days that Skorzeny, a security consultant to Franco and Juan Peron after the war, was in touch with Nazi terrorists as Yves Guerain Serac (French OAS; Portuguese Aginter Pres) and Stefano Delle Chiaie (P2). The only thing a bit odd about this report is that it speaks about a "Nazi-Communist underground", implying that Naumann and his subversive friends would be interested in working with the Soviet Union in case they managed to overthrow the West-German government. This might sound scary, but it's also ridiculous, as the Nazis, including the post-war ones, were as anti-communist as they came. According to EIR, Cohn could later be found on the board of Permindex, a fascist and intelligence linked company that has been tied to the Kennedy assassination.

Paul Bonacci, one of the victim-witnesses in Franklin affair, also clearly stated Larry King used him in blackmail operations in New York and Washington. The latter was in connection with the activities of a close associate of Larry King, Craig Spence, who was involved in a prostitution ring consisting of underaged boys that were supplied to Washington's upper class, which went right up to the White House (309). Interestingly, it was Sun Myung Moon's Washington Times which first exposed the White House prostitution scandal in 1989.

"Craig J. Spence, an enigmatic figure who threw glittery parties for key officials of the Reagan and Bush administrations, media stars and top military officers, bugged the gatherings to compromise guests, provided cocaine, blackmailed some associates and spent up to $20,000 a month on male prostitutes, according to friends, acquaintances and records..."

"Among the clients identified in hundreds of credit-card vouchers obtained by The Washington Times -- and identified by male prostitutes and escort operators -- are government officials, locally based U.S. military officers, businessmen, lawyers, bankers, congressional aides, media representatives and other professionals. Mr. Spence's influence appeared unlimited, aptly demonstrated by his ability to arrange midnight tours of the White House, according to three persons who said they took part in those tours."

"Several former associates said his [Spence's] house on Wyoming Avenue was bugged and had a secret two-way mirror, and that he attempted to ensnare visitors into compromising sexual encounters that he could then use as leverage... The man, a business associate of Mr. Spence who was on the White House tour, said: "He was blackmailing people. He was taping people and blackmailing them."...

"[A businessman] described Mr. Spence as "strange," saying that he often boasted that he was working for the CIA... Mr. Spence told him that the CIA might "doublecross him," however, and kill him instead "and then to make it look like a suicide." The businessman also said he attended a birthday bash for Roy Cohn at Mr. Spence's house. He said Mr. Casey was at the party." (310)

"During the past few weeks, Mr. Spence told several friends that the call-boy operation was being investigated by the U.S. Attorney's Office and other federal authorities as a possible CIA front. He told the friends that the CIA used the service to compromise other federal intelligence officials and foreign diplomats. One friend quoted him as saying, "Casey's boys are out to get me"..."

"During a lengthy interview at a Manhattan apartment in August, Mr. Spence frequently alluded to deep mysteries. "All this stuff you've uncovered (involving call boys, bribery and the White House tours), to be honest with you, is insignificant compared to other things I've done. But I'm not going to tell you those things, and somehow the world will carry on." He also talked frequently of suicide, saying repeatedly, "My life is over." He reserved deep bitterness for high-powered friends he said had forsaken him. "I've had the world at my house, and now they don't know who I am," he said. "But they did come, didn't they?"" (311)

June 29, 1989, the well-known headline several months after George H.W. Bush had become the new president of the United States. Doesn't it remain strange that it was Sun Myung Moon's paper, whose network has been closely tied to sexual blackmail operations, became responsible for exposing a homosexual blackmail ring so closely tied to the White House? Moon's associate, general Daniel O. Graham (deputy head CIA; head DIA; USGSC; pusher of the Star Wars program), stated in this article that because of this ring, top-Washington officials might have been compromised by the KGB (a little one-sided warning)... Was there a deeper meaning as to why this scandal suddenly had to be (partially) exposed? Was somebody sending a message to the White House? Next to why and how the whole affair was covered up, these also are legitimate questions to be asked.

The scandal was first exposed in late June 1989 and by November 1989 Spence had committed suicide. A serious investigation never followed and all records pertaining to the case have been sealed for many decades to come. One of the reporters involved in initially braking the story explained he had been told that these records will eventually be unsealed, but not before there's "a cold day in hell" (312).

Just as the 1986 Mirano scandal, the X-Dossiers contain evidence that sexual blackmail operations, whoever is running them, are not limited to the United States. In 1996, X1 reported how the same activities had been going on in Brussels. Read and compare:

"Since I was 8 or 9 years old, Mitch [Nihoul] would often enough take me with him and give me the assignment to hang around a certain customer. I liked doing that. I enjoyed seeing them shamble around, their efforts to stay out of my way unnoticed. I smiled when Mich asked me to stand next to a customer to make a picture, and how the customer reluctantly smiled and put a weak arm around my shoulder... The glances which were then exchanged between the one taking the picture and the customer were priceless. The customer knew he was trapped... In the night they had been the boss, now they were prey... Too bad that most of them, once they knew they had been trapped, went to experiment even more during the night..."

"In Brussels there was a villa in which a room was set up with built-in cameras. Even in the 1970s these cameras were so discrete that only the people who maintained them and the child-prostitutes knew where they were located... Why did I had to get those guys clearly in the picture, why was I supposed to get them to hit me and brutally rape me? Why was 'regular' sex often not enough?... Blackmail, the word that was never mentioned, I only started to really understand when I was thirteen, fourteen years old..."

"Contracts between the business milieu and the political world, contracts between businessmen amongst each other, fraud with subsidies or licenses, setting up fake firms, criminal contracts like arms trade... everything was possible. And it always ended with sex and children... Pictures were taken, in jest, to keep both parties to their contracts... The men were brought to ideas by child pornography movies that were played at parties... The pimps also had another tactic. They invited a person who could be useful to them. They went to dine with him, and took him -- after he had been liquored up -- to a 'party'. Men from the top layer of society are used to visiting or getting offered prostitutes. They usually knew that something like this would follow, and the prostitutes they would see upon entering would be slightly older girls, between 16 [sexually mature in Belgium] and 18 years old. More booze and cocaine would be supplied, for ambience. And only then the 'prey' would be taken to a room where a younger girl was waiting, like me, then."

"Most men probably realized only afterwards in what kind of hornet's nest they now found themselves, but by then it was far too late... Men were introduced to the network by colleagues, friends or family members. Carefully or slowly, or briskly after a party. Step by step customers, who first went to bed with me cautiously, were stimulated to rougher sex. I was forced to help them with that... They became complicit and at the same time their mutual connections became tighter. Not one of these people was still inclined to sign contracts with individuals outside the network. If that happened one could make them pay dearly for that..." (313)

To summarize, extreme sadomasochist (SM) obsessions combined with blackmail appear to be the most obvious reasons for the existence of the abuse networks. Judging by some of the names, the extreme abuse almost seems like the ultimate admission test for some aspect of what senior BCCI officials once termed "the black network" (314).

Another frequently mentioned reason for the existence and protection of these high level child abuse networks is mind control research with a specific focus on Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) (315). Back in the 1970s, the CIA's past mind-control programs were exposed, but apparently by that time the agency had already transferred these programs to child abusing cults (316). Even if the research itself was not exported to other countries, it's still clear that X1's pimp Tony knew exactly how to deal with X1 when her dissociative identities began to manifest. Question is, who educated him?

November 2009 update: It might be interesting to read a newer ISGP's article that quite clearly traces the sexual entrapment operations in Belgium to a CIA MK-ULTRA subproject -- probably gotten out of hand [?] -- that began in the mid 1950s.

More on the Satanic link and the biggest picture possible

Of course, the most controversial explanation for the abuse has hardly been discussed yet: Satanism. Especially outside Christian circles this highly foreign (and silly) topic is generally associated with, if anything, fairytales from the US countryside and maybe a handful of deranged teenage black metal fans. Satanism is a bit more enigmatic than that, however. For starters, there have been a huge amount of reports about Satanic and-or ritual abuse (the latter not necessarily the same as Satanism) since the late 1970s in both the US and UK. Going through newspaper archives will show that especially since the late 1980s the accusations became epidemic with estimates that anywhere between 10,000 to 20,000 survivors of such abuse were getting treatment (317). As usual, the gatekeepers in the press and psychology community refused to take the topic serious and soon came up with the accusation that the therapists were the ones responsible for this "hysteria". Although reports never dried out, the media hardly addresses this issue these days.

Besides the more well known LaVeyan Satanism, which is a basic "spiritual" philosophy for the self-absorbed and mentally disturbed, there's also a more ritual-based Satanism, aka Luciferianism, which is intrinsically linked to the numerous ritual-based mystery cults of the ancient Middle-East and Europe. Without going in the religious details, it's possible that some of the more abominable practices have survived, even if only used in a practical (for recruiting) and symbolic way. Just remember Col. Aquino's Satanic hobbies or what DeCamp wrote about "Dr. Green" being influenced by Cabalistic magic.

Luciferianism, a deceptive and dark form of gnosticism, can still be found in the Memphis Misraim Rite of Freemasonry (34º-99º) (318) and the even more low-profile Martinist and Synarchist Order (319). If these two organizations have any political influence is a good question; as virtually nothing has been written on them we just don't know.

-- RFK Must Die: The Assassination of Bobby Kennedy, an investigative documentary by Shane O'Sullivan

In September 1939 Ralph Maxwell Lewis was initiated (subject to the approval of Chaboseau) by Lagrèze into the O.M.T. (S.I.and S.I.IV, the "Initiator-degree")) Harvey Spencer Lewis (A.M.O.R.C.), Ralph's father, had received a charter from Blanchard for the OM & S in the United States. The first Martinist temple which was established in California by Lewis was called "Louis Claude de Saint-Martin". Ralph had been initiated into the OM & S by Blanchard in 1936 (S.I.IV). In October 1939 Ralph Maxwell Lewis was appointed "Sovereign delegate and Regional Grand Master" of the O.T.M. by Lagrèze, for California and the United States. This way the Conseil Suprême Régional des Etats-Unis' was founded. The council consisted of 5 members: Ralph Maxwell Lewis, Cecil A. Poole, Orlando T. Perrotta, James R. Whitcomb and J. Duane Freeman. The Charter was requested by Ralph Maxwell Lewis and the request was addressed to Lagrèze, together with an application for the "regularization of Martinist Initiation" intended for the brothers Whitcomb, K. Brower, and the sisters Whitcomb, G. Lewis and M. Lewis. They all received the S.I. degree, except for Ralph M. Lewis, who also received the Degree of Initiator, S:::I:::IV. Under the umbrella of the Rosicrucian Order A.M.O.R.C. the Martinist Order (OMT/TMO) was introduced in America.

-- Manifestations of the Martinist Order, by Milko Bogaard

It's only because of the internet that a little bit of information can be pieced together. So it appears that Licio Gelli, the former notorious head of the fascist P2 lodge, is a 99º 'grand hierophant' and honorary international head of the Memphis Misraïm Rite in Italy (320). In 2004, there were rumors in Spain that the newly nominated head of the Guardia Civil (equivalent of the Belgian gendarmerie) was picked because of his membership in the Martinist and Synarchist Order (321). Allegedly, the royal house of Serbia, which in 2004 hosted a meeting of the private intelligence group Le Cercle, is also involved in Memphis Misraim and Synarchism (322).

One man of science who would come to personify this uneasy truce was a Blavatsky enthusiast who became influential in the German movement. Dr. Franz Hartmann (1838- 1912), the prolific author of a wide range of occult books, first studied medicine at the University of Munich. While spending seventeen years as an eye doctor (and sometime coroner) in the United States, he became interested in the Spiritualist movement and began reading Theosophical tracts. In 1883 he traveled to Theosophical Society headquarters in Adyar, India, to sit at the feet of the Masters, evidently impressing his hosts greatly. He was trusted so highly that, while Blavatsky was in Elberfeld helping jump-start the German Section, Hartmann was in Adyar as acting president of the Theosophical Society and remained in India until 1885.

Hartmann is of considerable interest to this investigation as it was he who helped create the Ordo Templi Orientis, a German occult society formed around the idea of sexual magic. Other illustrious members of the OTO will include another Theosophist, Dr. Rudolf Steiner, who will go on to form the Anthroposophical Society in 1912; Gerard Encausse, who -- under the nom de plume of "Papus" -- had written the first definitive text on the Tarot as a book of concealed illuminism; and Aleister Crowley, whose A...A..., or Argentum Astrum ("Silver Star"), was founded in 1907, the same year as the Order of New Templars mentioned above. (The OTO will be discussed in greater detail in Chapter Four.)

Another personal friend of Mme. Blavatsky was Dr. William Wynn Westcott (1848-1925), another coroner and a Theosophist who founded the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn in England in 1888, the same year as The Secret Doctrine was published. Westcott claimed that the Golden Dawn was in reality the English branch of a German occult lodge, a claim that would later be proven a hoax and which is, for that very reason, highly suggestive; for why would anyone claim a German origin for their occult society when so many other cultures are much more consistent with popular mystical stereotypes, such as those of India or Egypt?

Whatever the reason, we have the Theosophical Society, the OTO, the Anthroposophical Society, and the Golden Dawn all intertwined in incestuous embrace. These are the organizations most familiar to a casual reader of occult histories, and we will come back to them later on, for they all bear directly on our story. For now, though, let us follow the careers of the German Theosophists to see where they will lead us.

Upon his return to Europe in 1885, Hartmann took up residence at a town near Salzburg, and the directorship of a Lebensreform sanatorium. Lebensreform (or "life reform") was a back-to-nature movement that espoused a wide range of "clean living" practices that would be the envy of any New Ager of today. Vegetarianism, abstention from alcohol and tobacco, homeopathy, and even nudism informed this movement, and Hartmann saw it as a vehicle for the more overtly mystical program of Theosophy.

Like most occultists who are inveterate "joiners" and collectors of paper dignities, Hartmann was not content to confine his spiritual search to the leadership available in the Theosophical movement or any other movement. Most Western occultism is long on text and short on practice (contrary to forms of occultism found in the East, which rely on strict discipline, rigorous mental and physical exercises, and the constant supervision of a teacher or "guru"), and occasionally a Western seeker -- starved for genuine accomplishment -- will accumulate vast quantities of initiations into wildly disparate organizations with awesome-sounding titles, hoping thereby to satisfy his ego if not his spirit. In this way, occultism becomes a hobby -- rather like stamp-collecting, or bird- watching -- but with the added benefit that the seeker elevates himself in his own eyes to stratospheric levels of arcane wisdom beyond the feeble understanding of mere mortals. That is, until the next occult order is formed and another -- more formidable -- initiation becomes available. (This phenomenon is by no means limited to occultists, of course; it is to be discovered among the highly elevated and multiply consecrated "bishops" of a wide variety of distaff Eastern Orthodox and Old Roman Catholic denominations, some of whom also become involved with occult secret societies, such as Theosophist Hugo Vollrath -- mentioned below -- who became "Bishop of Erfurt" under the jurisdiction of Metropolitan Abdul Bahai, head of the Gnostic Church of Haifa.)

Thus Hartmann will become involved, in 1902, with one John Yarker whose Masonic order, the Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis and Mizraim, would claim many otherwise-sincere individuals as members. It would be from among the German leadership of this organization that the future founders of the OTO -- including Hartmann himself -- would be selected. Hence, it is Franz Hartmann who provides us with some excellent connections between the seemingly apolitical Ordo Templi Orientis and the rest of the German occult community, which was, more or less, aligned with either the Lebensreform movement or directly with the Pan-German, anti-Semitic movement which gave birth to Nazism. Thus Hartmann is the axle on which this peculiar Wheel of Life will turn. Wherever we pick up the thread of twentieth-century Western occultism and ritual magic, we can follow it back along a trail that leads to Hartmann.


"Sex-magic" is a loaded term with all sorts of connotations, and it is perhaps best that we discuss what Kellner -- and later OTO initiates -- meant by it. It is, quite simply, a method of sublimating sexual energy to the will of the magician in a variety of rituals, for a variety of purposes, using the sexual practice appropriate to the desired end. Thus, everything from the missionary position to sodomy to masturbation has a magical analogue and refers to a different quality of occult power. The choice of partner is also a matter for some concern, and the practice of sex-magic has become so refined by later initiates of the Order that even the specific days of a woman's menstrual cycle (for instance) each has its own occult correspondence....

That there existed a higher form of sex, perhaps the application of the sex act, sexual positions, sexual fluids, and even sexual pleasure to spiritual goals like illumination and unity with Godhead, appealed to Crowley immensely for it made of sex a magickal laboratory wherein any experiment was justified if not actually demanded by the rigors of scientific method. The occultists of the OTO had applied "the art of German engineering" to the sex act, taking it, in effect, out of the bedroom and into the lab.

-- Unholy Alliance: A History of Nazi Involvement with the Occult, by Peter Levenda

The OTO was founded between 1895 and 1900 by a pair of powerful Freemasons, Karl Kellner and Theodor Reuss. Politically, the order was right-wing in the extreme, proposing the creation of a pan-German world based on pagan spiritual beliefs. Kellner died in 1905, and Reuss, a former spy for the Prussian Secret Service, assumed the office of high caliph. While living in London, Reuss spied on German socialist expatriates. In 1912 he made the acquaintance of Aleister Crowley, and appointed him head of the OTO's British chapter. But The Beast's political loyalties have always been an open question.

While living in the States, he wrote pro-German diatribes for two fascist publications, The Fatherland and The Internationalist. After WW II, there were calls for his head. But Crowley offered that his pro-German stance was a ruse of MI6, the military intelligence division in the UK.

In 1912 he had informed the secret service of his correspondence with Reuss, the German spy. Throughout the '20s and '30s, Crowley gathered intelligence on European Communists, the Nazi movement and Germany's occult lodges. Crowley died in 1944, willing the copyright for his books and unpublished manuscripts to the OTO, and leadership of the order to Karl Germer, otherwise known as Frater Saturnus X., formerly Crowley's Legate in the U.S. Germer was born in Germany, served in WW I and was reportedly tossed in the prison by the Nazis for his involvement in Freemasonry. (Crowley believed Germer to be a Nazi spy, but admitted him to the OTO anyway. Typical.)

-- The OTO and the CIA, by Alex Constantine

This is about all the information available on membership in these two gnostic organizations. It might be a coincidence, but Gelli (323), Arruche (324) and the royal Karageorgevitch family of Serbia (325) appear to represent a distinctly extreme right-wing milieu, which has not only been highlighted in this article, but also in the article on Le Cercle. In Belgium this milieu has largely been represented by the Vatican and US intelligence-linked right wing of the PSC, and coincidentally, besides numerous accusations of child abuse against PSC members, some have also been accused of ritual abuse and Satanism, albeit largely through Opus Dei.

First up are the claims of Jacques Thoma, who once was a treasurer of the PSC youth division. His boss was the notorious CEPIC member Jean-Paul Dumont, the alleged child abuser (326).

"Jacques Thoma was at a restaurant with Sara de Wachter (01/10/55) when he broke down in tears. He participated in 1985-86 in several satanic sessions close to Charleroi."

"He is very afraid. He was a treasurer of the youth section of the PSC. He often met with Michel Dewolf, Philippe Sala and Jean-Paul Dumont. They tried to direct Thoma toward Opus Dei what they considered Nec Plus Ultra [Latin for "nothing further beyond"]."

"Under the pretext of initiation tests for Opus Dei he was brought to a Black Mass with sexual acts. He mentions the presence of girls from a country in the East (13-14 years)... He was drugged before being taken into a room with masked people who had dressed in black robes. The participants drank blood. He was placed in the presence of a naked little girl laying down on an altar -- she had died."

The remedy by which, according to Paracelsus, rejuvenation (regeneration) could be accomplished is not a compound of chemical substances, but an Arcanum, "an invisible fire, which destroys all diseases." It is also called the Red Lion, and is said to be a red ethereal fluid, capable of transmuting all inferior metals into gold, and having other wonderful virtues. Paracelsus says: “Be careful not to take anything from the lion but the rose-coloured blood, and from the white eagle only the white gluten. Coagulate (corporify) it according to the directions given by the ancients, and you will have the tinctura physicorum."

"If we could extract the fire of life from the heart without destroying the heart, and draw the quintessence out of inanimate things, and use it for our purpose, we might live forever in the enjoyment of health, and without experiencing any disease. There are some substances in which this quintessence is contained in greater quantities than in others, and from which it can more easily be extracted. Such substances are especially the herb called melissa and the human blood."

"To make the Primum Ens Sanguinis, take blood from the median vein of a healthy young person, and let it run into a warm bottle that has been weighed upon scales, so that the exact quantity of the blood used will be known. Add to this blood twice its quantity of alcahest, close the bottle, and permit it to remain in a moderately warm place for about fourteen days, after which the red fluid is to be separated from the sediment, filtered, and preserved. This is the Primum Ens Sanguinis."

Breeders tell us that young animals should not be herded with old ones; and intelligent physicians forbid parents to have young children occupy their own beds. When David was old and feeble his vital forces were recruited by having a young person brought in close contact with him so that he could absorb her strength. The late Empress of Russia, the sister of the present German Emperor, was so feeble the last years of her life that she was seriously advised by her physicians to keep in her bed at night a robust and healthy young peasant-girl. Whoever has read the description given by Dr. Kerner of the Seeress of Prevorst, Mme. Hauffe, must well remember her words. She repeatedly stated that she supported life merely on the atmosphere of the people surrounding her and their magnetic emanations, which were quickened in an extraordinary way by her presence. The seeress was very plainly a magnetic vampire, who absorbed by drawing to herself the life of those who were strong enough to spare her their vitality in the shape of volatilized blood. Dr. Kerner remarks that these persons were all more or less affected by this forcible loss.

"He encountered the grand master, Francois-Joseph, who told him that he was a police informant and that he had to be careful... Francois-Joseph is a notary implicated in the trafficking of girls for prostitution from the East."

"He wanted to leave but was drugged again. He woke up the following day in his car. He left the party [PSC] and made a declaration to the BSR [Special Investigations Unit of the gendarmerie] in Charleroi." (327)

X4, who also claimed to have been taken to Satanist black masses, fingered Paul Vanden Boeynants, Dumont's boss, as a violent abuser and added that Opus Dei members (like these) had belonged to her most sadistic clique (328).

The only true criteria for the legitimacy of a mystical/occult order has always lain in the Latin word Opus, the Work. Who has the Work; documents are hollow without it, and the Work stands alone on its own intrinsic value as a reflection of Truth that any sincere seeker can determine by intuitive resonance.

Monsignor Escriva began to pace from one side of the room to the other, very agitated, irritated, red, furious, while he declared: "And don't talk with anybody about the Work nor about Rome. Don't set your parents against us, because, if I find out that you are saying anything negative about the Work to anybody, I, Jose Maria Escriva de Balaguer, have the world press in my hands," and as he said this he made a gesture with his hands confirming the notion. "I will publicly dishonor you. Your name will appear on the front page of every newspaper, because I will personally see to it. It would bring dishonor on you before men and on your own family! Woe to you if you try to alienate your family from the good name of the Work or tell them anything about this!"

He went on: "And don't return to Venezuela! Don't even think of writing to anybody there! Because if you even think of going to Venezuela, I will assume the responsibility of telling the Cardinal what you are. And it would dishonor you!" Pacing the room he continued shouting at me: "I was thinking all night about whether to tell you this or not, but I believe it is better that I should tell you." Looking directly at me, with a dreadful rage, moving his arms toward me as if he was going to hit me, he added at the top of his voice: "You are a wicked woman! A lost woman! Mary Magdalen was a sinner, but you? You are a seductress with all your immorality and indecency! You are a seductress! I know everything. EVERYTHING! EVEN ABOUT THE VENEZUELAN NEGRO! You are abominable. YOU HAVE A WEAKNESS FOR BLACKS! First with one and then with the other. LEAVE MY PRIESTS ALONE! DO YOU HEAR? LEAVE THEM ALONE! In peace. Don't meddle with them! You're wicked! Wicked! Indecent! Come on, look at the business of the Negro! And don't ask me for my blessing because I don't intend to give it to you!"

Monsignor Escriva went away toward the Relics Chapel. From there he turned around to shout a final insult: "Hear me well! WHORE! SOW!"

-- Beyond the Threshold -- A Life in Opus Dei, by Maria del Carmen Tapia

When Chevillon succeeded Bricaud in 1934 the Martinist neophytes received their masonic initiation through Memphis-Misraim. ...

‘L'Ordre Martiniste Initiatique’ was officially founded on June 30, 1968 by Robert Ambelain (Aurifer). One year before, in August 1967, Ambelain resigned from the office of Grand Commandeur of the O*M* des Elus Cohen....When Robert Ambelain left ‘L’Ordre Martiniste de Paris’ and dissolved ‘L’Ordre des Elus Cohen’, he founded ‘L’Ordre Martiniste Initiatique’; a Martinist order supposedly established within the bosom of the ‘Rite Ancien et Primitif de Memphis-Misraim’. The OMI was based on a Russian filiation from i.a. Novikov. Ambelain was Grand Master of the Memphis-Misraim rite and was succeeded by Gérard Kloppel in 1984. ‘L’Ordre Martiniste Initiatique’ had a lodge in Brussels, Belgium: ‘La Loge Souveraine Martinésiste du Septentrion (Loge Martinez de Pasqually)’, under the authority of F::: Umabel (Marcel Jirousek?)...

Robert Ambelain led several initiatic organizations which were closely linked with each other: The Martinist Order/Elus Cohen/Rose-Croix d’Orient, Memphis-Misraim Rite, Kabbalistic Order of the Rose+Cross, and the E.G.A (Ecclesia Gnostica Apostolica), the Gnostic Catholic Apostolic Church (‘Catholic’ as in ‘Universal’). Like John Yarker, Theodoor Reuss and Papus, Ambelain continued a system of Higher Degrees in which all aspects of (Western) Occultism and Mysticism were taught. Remi Boyer in an article on the connections of High Grade Masonry and Occult Societies stated that Ambelain’s system of organizations is one of the most well-known and successful cases known today. This ‘system’, set up by Ambelain and widely developed by his successor, Gérard Kloppel (Signifer), recruited its members for the OM Initiatique among the members of the Memphis-Misraim Rite....

‘Sanctuary of the Gnosis’, headed by George Boyer ... represented all the organisations descending from Yarker and various Apostolic successions. These orders and rites (together with all extant Apostolic successions) are today represented by Lewis Keizer's ‘Temple of the Holy Grail’:

• ILLUMINIST: Fratres Lucis (Brotherhood of the Illuminati), Order of the Illuminati, Order of the Martiniste, LVX (1), Brotherhood of Luxor

• TEMPLAR: Order of De Knights of the Holy Ghost, Order of the Knights of St. John, Order of the Knights of Malta, Order of the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre, Order of the Temple (Apostolic Succession)

• ROSICRUCIAN: Order of the True Rosy Cross, Order of the Ecclesiae Rosicrucianae Catholicae, Hidden Church of the Holy Grail

• MASONIC: Ancient and Primitive Rite, Rite of Memphis, Rite of Mizraim, Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, Swedenborgian Rite of Masonry, Order of the Rose Croix of Hiredom, Order of the Holy Royal Arch of Enoch

-- Manifestations of the Martinist Order, by Milko Bogaard

Psychotherapist Pascal Willems had information on another PSC member, Melchior Wathelet, who together with his mentor Paul Vanden Boeynants was named by X1 as a child abuser (329).

"Since 1992, Brassine was in contact with Pascal Willems, a fellow-psychotherapist. Willems looked after two children (8-10 years) who were victims of child molesters and Satanists... The children would have participated in a combined feast and orgy organized by Melchior Wathelet in a castle located in the region of Verviers. The castle belongs to a private association. Willems would be in the possession of an invitation... This [abuse] went on until the children were put to death. The children came from a children's home with a complicit director."

"At the time, Willems spoke about the affair to the adviser of the SAJ [Les Services de l'Aide à la Jeunesse, or youth support] of Verviers, who told him to keep quiet. He has been intimidated or has been threatened by telephone by the boss of the judicial police in Verviers and by the advisor of the SAJ, and by an anonymous person. Contact between Brassine and Willems in October-November 1995 and at the end of 1996. Brassine speaks of it to Denayer (judicial police in Namur). Following that, Willems was threatened with "suicide" [by a superior of Mr. Denayer]... The 2 files of the SAJ would have disappeared... Willems hid the relevant documents in a safe place at this office..." (330)

The last PSC member to be accused of "sectarian or satanic" activities is Jean-Pierre Grafe. Until the early 1980s, Grafe used to be a board member of CEPIC, alongside Baron de Bonvoisin, Paul Vanden Boeynants, Jean-Paul Dumont and others (331). In 1982 and 1984, shortly after the demise of CEPIC, he was accused of pedophilia and came under investigation. His brother, Jacques, was later convicted for these facts and ended up in jail (332). Besides the prominent but fraudulent Oliver Trusgnach case, there were other unreported charges of child abuse against Grafe (333). As for the Satanist charges:

"Sectarian or satanic activities at the Valmont castle in Merbes-Le-Chateau [Chateau de la Roquette]. Owner of the chateau = Pierre Ferbus (07/01/42). Homosexual -- banker BBL [Banque Bruxelles Lambert]. Di Rupo and Graffe would have been seen at these parties... A report of the Police of Lobbes [nearby town, to the north] received the same information concerning Jean-Pierre Graffe... A rapport of the BSR [Special Investigations Unit of the Gendarmerie] in Thuin [another nearby town] contains approaching information." (334)

As you can see, it's not unreasonable to keep an open mind that there could well exist a Satanic abuse cell somewhere within the earlier-mentioned black network. Like with any intelligence project, it would only be necessary for a few ritual and-or occult practitioners of, for example the Memphis-Misraim rite or the Martinist and Synarchist Order (or apparently Opus Dei and the Knights of Malta), to be initiated into this black network while all the rest of the staff and membership of these organizations would know little or nothing about these depraved practices. As for Opus Dei and Knights of Malta, the P2 lodge affair provided evidence that at the highest level these two Catholic organizations were in control, together with US intelligence (335).

Update: In the past we took it a little further in this section. We slowly found out, however, that the sources of this information really weren't reliable. And to be honest, we continue to advise everyone to remain skeptical of any claims about high level satanism. [?]

The Knights of Malta

The Roman Catholic Church did not forget the American agents who had saved them from both Nazism and Communism. It rewarded them by making them Knights of Malta, or members of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM).

SMOM is one of the oldest and most elite religious orders in the Catholic Church. Until recently, it limited its membership to Italians and foreign heads of state. In 1927, however, an exception was made for the United States, given its emerging status as a world power. SMOM opened an American branch, awarding knighthood or damehood to several American Catholic business tycoons. This group was so conservative that one, John Raskob, the Chairman of General Motors, actually became involved in an aborted military plot to remove Franklin Roosevelt from the White House. SMOM has also been embarrassed by knighting or giving awards to countless people who later turned out to be Nazi war criminals. This is the sort of culture that thrives within the leadership of SMOM.

Officially, the Knights of Malta are a global charity organization. But beginning in the 1940s, knighthood was granted to countless CIA agents, and the organization has become a front for intelligence operations. SMOM is ideal for this kind of activity, because it is recognized as the world’s only landless sovereignty, and members enjoy diplomatic immunity. This allows agents and supplies to pass through customs without interference from the host country. Such privileges enabled the Knights of Malta to become a major supplier of "humanitarian aid" to the Contras during their war in the 1980s.

A partial list of the Knights and Dames of Malta reads like a Who’s Who of American Catholicism:

• William Casey – CIA Director.
• John McCone – CIA Director.
• William Colby – CIA Director.
• William Donovan – OSS Director. Donovan was given an especially prestigious form of knighthood that has only been given to a hundred other men in history.
• Frank Shakespeare – Director of such propaganda organizations as the U.S. Information Agency, Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty. Also executive vice-president of CBS-TV and vice-chairman of RKO General Inc. He is currently chairman of the board of trustees at the Heritage Foundation, a right-wing think tank.
• William Simon – Treasury Secretary under President Nixon. In the private sector, he has become one of America’s 400 richest individuals by working in international finance. Today he is the President of the John M. Olin Foundation, a major funder of right-wing think tanks.
• William F. Buckley, Jr. – CIA agent, conservative pundit and mass media personality.
• James Buckley – William’s brother, head of Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty.
• Clare Boothe Luce - The grand dame of the Cold War was also a Dame of Malta. She was a popular playwright and the wife
• of the publishing tycoon Henry Luce, who cofounded Time magazine.
• Francis X Stankard - CEO of the international division of Chase Manhattan Bank, a Rockefeller institution. (Nelson Rockefeller was also a major CIA figure.)
• John Farrell – President, U.S. Steel
• Lee Iacocca – Chairman, General Motors
• William S. Schreyer – Chairman, Merrill Lynch.
• Richard R. Shinn – Chairman, Metropolitan Life Insurance Company.
• Joseph Kennedy – Founder of the Kennedy empire.
• Baron Hilton – Owner, Hilton Hotel chain.
• Patrick J. Frawley Jr. – Heir, Schick razor fortune. Frawley is a famous funder of right-wing Catholic causes, such as the Christian Anti-Communist Crusade.
• Ralph Abplanalp - Aerosol magnate.
• Martin F. Shea - Executive vice president of Morgan Guaranty Trust.
• Joseph Brennan - Chairman of the executive committee of the Emigrant Savings Bank of New York.
• J. Peter Grace – President, W.R. Grace Company. He
• was a key figure in Operation Paperclip, which brought Nazi scientists and spies to the U.S. Many were war criminals whose atrocities were excused in their service to the CIA.
• Thomas Bolan – Of Saxe, Bacon and Bolan, the law firm of Senator McCarthy's deceased aide Roy Cohn.
• Bowie Kuhn – Baseball Comissioner
• Cardinal John O'Connor – Extreme right-wing leader among American Catholics, and fervent abortion opponent.
• Cardinal Francis Spellman – The "American Pope" was at one time the most powerful Catholic in America, an arch-conservative and a rabid anti-communist.
• Cardinal Bernard Law - One of the highest-ranking conservatives in the American church.
• Alexander Haig – Secretary of State under President Reagan.
• Admiral James D. Watkins – Hard-line chief of naval operations under President Reagan.
Jeremy Denton – Senator (R–Al).
• Pete Domenici – Senator (R-New Mexico).

Clearly it's possible with the Dutroux affair -- which ultimately has surprisingly little to do with Dutroux himself -- to take things as far as one wants. The one thing that is certain is that Dutroux was not an exception in terms of sexual preferences and brutality, even if, hypothetically, he wasn't (loosely) attached to an abuse network. The Belgian judiciary and press never wanted to hear about networks and sabotaged and ridiculed anyone who tried to prove the opposite. Ironically, especially in Britain the existence of these networks, especially through the internet, has increasingly been acknowledged. It's also a fact that the Dutroux case was handled entirely different in the British press than in most of the Belgian press, showing just how easy it is to simulate objectivity. This does not withstand that even though the British press occasionally prefers to expose an overseas sexual abuse scandal, at least to some extent, they are not always very good at doing the same thing in their own country.

In Belgium, at the very least the evidence seems to point to a loose network [?] of criminals, fascist militants, businessmen, law enforcement officers and child abusers who frequently met one another in such clubs as Les Atrebates, the Dolo, the Jonathan, Le Clin d'Oeil, the Co-Cli-Co, Platos, Les Trois Canards, Coco Beach, Le Perroquet, the Euro 92 bar in Tervueren or the prestigious Mirano. According to the testimonies, child abuse was regularly going on in the private areas of these clubs, or possibly after closing time, at certain evenings, or in nearby apartments belonging to the club owner. Furthermore, X1 quite convincingly pointed out that the hotel-villa of X1's grandmother, one of Annie Bouty's homes, and the ASCO factory were other similar "safe-houses" for various forms of child abuse. Other witnesses pointed to a whole range of other villas, country houses and castles where abuse parties had been held.

The problem with the above theory, of course, is that it's impossible for the mafia and a handful of mid- to higher level officials to hide their involvement in all these dirty schemes. Highest level cover in combination with the cooperation of the press is necessary to facilitate a cover up of this magnitude. And coincidentally, with names as Baron de Bonvoisin, Paul Vanden Boeynants, Etienne Davignon and Maurice Lippens we have alleged abusers with endless connections in intelligence and covert operations, the judiciary, law enforcement, regular politics and the globalist elite. Within Belgium several of the most senior judges, like Melchior Wathelet and Jean Depretre (not counting Van Espen), were named as abusers, and coincidentally they played crucial roles in earlier affairs where cover ups and manipulations had been going on, like the Pink Ballets and the Gang of Nijvel.

Maybe it now becomes obvious why everything in the Dutroux dossier that pointed to a larger network just had to disappear (336). Belgium can easily handle the conviction of a Dutroux, or even a Nihoul with all his political connections, but, as some have stated, it's very uncertain if Belgium would be able to handle the X-witnesses and the chain reaction they would set in motion. Predictions that a full expose of the X-testimonies would result in a break up of Belgium might not be that much of an exaggeration, not to consider the international ramifications.

But it's only here that we are really out on a limb for the first time in this article, because the X-witness testimonies will not be known to the general public for a long time to come, and it will take even longer before any investigations might be reopened.

Further reading

• The discussion of these networks continues in ISGP's "La Nebuleuse" article. Here more documents are presented in which the same accusations and the same names appear. These documents were not in the possession of the author when this article was written. It goes very deep in the intelligence aspect of these networks.

• An article, written in February 2010, goes deeper into Belgium's illegal child abusing club circuit and how it is protected. It also follows the network to the Netherlands, where, just as in Belgium, top level people have been accused of child abuse.

• Another article, written in April 2010, that goes into the owner of the notorious private intelligence firm European Institute of Management (EIM). This owner just happens to be a 1001 Club member.

• Also interesting might be ISGP's article that traces the sexual entrapment operations in Belgium to a CIA program that began in the 1950s.

X1 accused Melchior Wathelet of being one of the more violent child abusers at the ASCO factory, together with Paul Vanden Boeynants and Baron de Bonvoisin.

*) Also accused in PV 151.046, March 23, 1997: "Since 1992, Brassine was in contact with Pascal Willems, a fellow-psychotherapist. Willems looked after two children (8-10 years) who were victims of child molesters and Satanists... The children would have participated in a combined feast and orgy organized by Melchior Wathelet in a castle located in the region of Verviers. The castle belongs to a private association." According to the PV (official report), Willems was severely intimidated by the local head of the judicial police and the advisor of its local youth support section.

When asked about these, Dutroux baldly stated that he used them for hiding children before sending them abroad. Thirault became an informer and shared all these facts with the police, but they failed to act on these leads or pass on the intelligence to other forces across the country. The police's conduct was marked by disastrous ineffectuality and incompetence."

[9] Ibid., p. 86: "In turn those observations are just a joke, keeping in mind the status of Dutroux as a suspect in a kidnapping case, which, we might assume, would require some urgency for the victims. Six times in two months Dutroux is shadowed, a total of about fifty hours, despite the use of time-energy-saving time laps... That's not even two percent of the total observation period, and according to experienced police officers, so ridiculously little that it was as good as useless."

[10] 1999, Marie-Jeanne Van Heeswyck, Annemie Bulté and Douglas De Coninck, 'De X-Dossiers', p. 379-380: "Already at the beginning of the investigation Tony V. [X1's pimp] had been shadowed by the SIE [Diana Group]. That happened in the old-fashioned way. He was followed by agents in plain clothes from nine in the morning to ten in the evening. The first shadow operation happened between 18 and 20 October 1996, the day of the White March - what would have been about the worst possible moment to catch a pedophile in the act... At the Neufchateau cell the same question arose as after the observations of Marc Dutroux during the secret Othello operation: Why did they already call it a day at 10 o'clock in the evening?"

[11] *) 1996, Fred Vandenbussche, 'Meisjes verdwijnen niet zomaar', p. 88-89:

"Operation Othello was not the only source which could have put the judiciary of Charleroi on the right trail of the child kidnapper. Early October 1996 -- almost three months after the disappearance of Julie and Melissa and several weeks after the disappearance of An and Eefje -- the justice department of Charleroi receives an anonymous letter in the mail, addressed to 'an examining magistrate'. The author warns for the strange habits of one Marc Dutroux... The neighbors complain about the annoying nightly activities of Dutroux. During the day the doors and windows of the house are never opened, the windows on the first floor always remain sealed with black plastic sheets, as if something is being hidden, in the garden hundreds of used car tires are stored. On top of that, the neighbors report to have noticed two 'young girls of sixteen or eighteen years old' in the backyard, who apparently remain in the house but don't belong in the neighborhood and never appear on the streets during daylight... The author of the letter is later identified as Jeanine Lauwens, the mother of Marc Dutroux... [long explanation about how this information was handled by the justice department]... But no bells start to ring. Dutroux is not brought in connection with An and Eefje. And the letter of his mother is not even added to the already thick dossier of Operation Othello... In any case, the information from Operation Othello is kept indoors. Charleroi would never inform the district attorney's offices who struggle with the investigation into the missing girls. Liege/Luik (Julie and Melissa) and Brugge (An and Eefje) get nothing from Charleroi."

*) Nov 17, 1996, the Sunday Times, 'Women dote on Belgian paedophile; Murder': "It is a sentiment shared by Dutroux's own mother, Jeanine Lauwens who, it has emerged, wrote in vain to the police warning them about her son long before he was arrested. "I knew he could not be trusted," she said recently."

[12] *) 1996, Fred Vandenbussche, 'Meisjes verdwijnen niet zomaar', p. 42: "The basement under the home of Dutroux-Martin has the shape of an upside-down L, what clearly deviates from the rectangle living room on top. That shape has to have been noticed immediately by the detectives who searched the basement -- and they would have to have wondered what was hidden behind those angular extra walls. The basement of a rental apartment maybe? Not a chance, because the home next to house 128 at route de Philippe-ville is a garage, without a basement entrance. Also the wood- and plasterwork of that peculiar part in the basement differs from the other walls, which are bare and consist of very old bricks with mortar crumbling from the moister. But the walls which Dutroux has built in the basement and after which the cell bunker is hidden, have been carefully finished with plastic panels... Did nobody ask why those two basement walls had been so carefully maintained while the rest looked so old? One tap with the finger against the plasterwork would have been sufficient to hear the sound of a hollow space. Those sound totally different than a tap on the other, solid basement walls..."

White. The rest of the basement was an unimaginable mess, you said yourself. That would have to have been noticed?" -- [Michaux:] 'I didn't think of that, Mr. Lejeune. Really. Renovation was going on everywhere in that house. It was a dump, really. I am sure - if I had entered again today and would hear the same thing [children's voices] - that I still wouldn't find the cage.'"

Of two little girls. One said three or four words, the other briefly answered; one word of one syllable. It lasted a few seconds. At that moment, a colleague of Michaux came running down the stairs making a lot of noise. Michaux shouted: "Tais-toi - Silence!" We heard nothing after that anymore." Michaux stated that they heard no voices, only a short murmur.

[14] 1996, Fred Vandenbussche, 'Meisjes verdwijnen niet zomaar', p. 43: "With his wife Louisa he [the father of Julie] went into the basement, the hell in which his daughter died, had himself locked into the concrete dungeon, sighed and spoke without raising his voice. 'And from outside the dungeon Louisa understood every word.'"

[15] *) 1999, Marie-Jeanne Van Heeswyck, Annemie Bulté and Douglas De Coninck, 'De X-Dossiers', p. 72: "On December 6, 1995 Marc Dutroux is arrested. He stays in the prison of Jamioulx until March 20. It is the time of the house searches of BOB officers Rene Michaux in the Marcinelle home. He hears children's voices there, but ignores them. He confiscates a video there on December 13, 1995, marked 'Perdu de Vue, Marc'. He also finds chains, locks and keys - apparently stuff with whom he chained down An and Eefje. A speculum, a small bottle of vaginal cream, chloroform... More than three years after the facts it also turns out that Michaux confiscated a videotape on which Dutroux had taped himself working on his basement and raping a Czech girl."

*) May 5, 2002, The Observer, 'Review: Investigation: Belgium's silent heart of darkness': "He found a speculum on the floor which he lifted, handled and returned to Dutroux's wife without forensic analysis. They found films which went undeveloped and videos which they didn't watch. Had they done so, they would have seen Dutroux building the dungeon."

*) February 21, 2004, The Daily Mail, 'Devil of the dungeon': They found a speculum - a medical instrument used for vaginal examinations - but accepted that it belonged to Dutroux's wife. They found videos marked 'Laurel and Hardy' and 'Disney', which they did not bother to play. Had they done so, they would have seen Dutroux raping his victims.

*) 1996, Fred Vandenbussche, 'Meisjes verdwijnen niet zomaar', p. 38: "[Laetitia] is able to explain quite clearly how she has been abused, how Dutroux abused her and how camera shots had been made of that. That didn't really surprise the detectives. They found piles of videotapes at Dutroux's where, cleverly between Tom and Jerry and Laurel and Hardy, several minutes of hardcore child pornography was hidden... again and again with that same Marc Dutroux in the leading role: naked, busy sexually molesting sleeping or unconscious girls. The children, not more than about ten different [ones]... are impossible or hard to recognize, but it's certain that neither Laetitia, nor Sabine, nor Julie, nor Melissa, nor An, nor Eefje can be found in those videos. If recordings have been made of Laetitia, as she stated herself, then where are they?"

[20] *) August 25, 1996, The Observer, 'The Child Abusers': "Hundreds of videos of children being abused have been found at one of the houses. Marc Dutroux is taking part in sex with children in some the videos, and they are being studied to see if the children can be also identified."

*) August 27, 1996, The Times, 'Police link murdered girl to child-sex case': "Police have seized more than 300 video tapes, featuring Dutroux and others in sexual acts with children. Michel Bourlet, the chief prosecutor, has promised to book all adults appearing in them, provided, he said, "that I am allowed to"."

[21] *) 1996, Fred Vandenbussche, 'Meisjes verdwijnen niet zomaar', p. 114: "... detectives who have to go through the nearly 5000 confiscated videos to identify faces of victims and abusers."

*) October 17, 1996, The Independent, 'Belgian protest goes on despite justice promise': ""Everything is being done to pursue the investigation," he [justice minister Stefaan De Clerck] said, adding that 350 people are now working full time on the case sifting through 5,000 videos of child pornography for incriminating evidence." 350 people working on the Dutroux case is a fact, but it seems that the 5,000 videos is something that was added by The Independent, assuming this was an already confirmed fact.

*) October 21, 1996, The Daily Mail, 'A human tide on the turn against evil': "That extraordinary decision, compounded by the initially inept investigation, has fueled suspicion of a cover-up to protect VIPs reported to feature in some of the 5,000 child sex videos seized at Dutroux's house... A recent opinion poll revealed that 95 per cent of Belgians believed that prominent politicians and police were involved in the paedophile ring."

*) November 10, 1996, The Mail on Sunday, 'The grief that turned to rage': "As the bewildered Belgians tried to make sense of what was going on, incredible rumours began circulating that Dutroux might have been protected in some way, that he had friends in high places. Pornographic videos taken from his home were said to feature prominent individuals, one a senior member of the Roman Catholic church. It almost defied belief. Who would protect a psychopath, other than people with something truly terrible to hide?... 'It is quite obvious,' said Katarin de Clercq, Belgian co-ordinator of the pressure group End Child Prostitution Abduction and Trafficking, 'that some people were protecting Dutroux. The government tried to convince us that he was a lone serial killer and psychopath, but now we hear stories about unnamed famous personalities being involved in sex orgies and blackmail and pornographic video tapes. People feel that something is completely wrong here and we have to show we will not tolerate it.'"

[22] 1999, Marie-Jeanne Van Heeswyck, Annemie Bulté and Douglas De Coninck, 'De X-Dossiers', p. 95: "After the Dutroux affair broke there was speculation for weeks about videos and pictures that would have been found in his homes. Ultimately it would turn out that nothing of this was true."
A simple statement maybe, but if there was any truth to the previous statements about the 300 to 5,000 videos these authors undoubtedly would have found out details about it.

On March 20, 1996, everything is given back to the lawyer of Dutroux. To this day the confiscated videos of Operation Othello remain a total mystery. Why did the gendarme leadership want those videos at any cost? Why did Dutroux get them back? Have copies been made? What has happened with these? How did commandant Schot knew there were porn scenes on them? They weren't even used to advance the investigation."

It took 11 days for Nihoul to come up with an alibi for August 9, 1996 the day Laetitia was kidnapped and Nihoul was assumed to have been seen in Bertrix. The alibi was provided by, of all people, the lawyer Michel Vander Elst. Vander Elst was a visitor of the Dolo and had once been convicted for having provided false alibis for members of the Haemers Gang, after they had kidnapped Paul Vanden Boeynants. Initially, Vander Elst was named as one of the masterminds of the kidnapping after investigators had found out that the kidnappers had been in continuous contact with Vander Elst. Vander Elst was named by X1 as among those involved in sadistic games with young girls and as someone who visited the ASCO torture factory. Vander Elst was a regular advisor to the BVBA Audio Corporation since 1992, which has been linked to pedophilic practices. Additionally, manager of the BVBA Audio Corporation was Joseph Schulman, whose brother Charles was married to the sister of Bernard Weinstein. Nihoul's alibi for August 9 was largely confirmed although participants of an evening barbecue which Nihoul attended couldn't get their story straight. One of the inconsistencies was that Vander Elst claimed that Nihoul came with Bouty, while all others claimed that Nihoul came with Marleen De Cockere. It was only in mid-1997 that a breakthrough was forced. Michel Bourlet was contacted by family V., which had seen Nihoul in Bertrix where Laetitia was kidnapped, and had to hear how this family wanted to withdraw their testimonies after having been intimidated over a period of many months. The family (again) mentioned how they were sure that they had seen Nihoul and how they later that day attended an evening market. That last remark prompted Bourlet to launch an inquiry into the date when this evening market had been organized, something which the original interviewers of the family somehow didn't think of (they just told the family it had indeed been organized on August 9). It turned out that the evening market had been organized on August 8 and that this was the date the family had seen Nihoul at the swimming pool in Bertrix where Laetitia would be kidnapped the next day. The details the family gave about the evening market proved they had been there. The family was shown car wrecks for Dutroux's garden and they picked out the Renault Trafic that they had seen on the parking lot of the swimming pool where Laetitia was kidnapped the next day. It was the same Renault Trafic that other witnesses had pointed out as having seen in Bertrix on August 8 and 9 with Dutroux in or next to it.

[25] *) 1999, Marie-Jeanne Van Heeswyck, Annemie Bulté and Douglas De Coninck, 'De X-Dossiers', p. 111-112: "That small inattentiveness of the gendarme officer has far-reaching consequences for the Nihoul dossier. The whole investigation around the alibi of of Nihoul, now for August 8, has to be entirely redone one year after the facts. Family V. will we heard a total of eleven times. What they exactly did that day, who they saw... [They had been standing face to face with Nihoul, Dutroux and Lelievre at the Bertrix swimming pool for at least half an hour the day before the kidnapping of Laetitia after having visited this same swimming pool] Inquires are made at the police of Bouillon. That of the porch-merchant is accurate. The three family members again are shown a series of pictures of the cars and wrecks from the backyard of Dutroux. They pick out the Renault Trafic of Dutroux - he had two of them - which they had been looking at [because it was such a wreck and had been planning to buy a new car] on the parking lot of the swimming pool. It is the same car as the student pointed out. In addition to the Flemish family seven others testified in Bertrix that they had seen Nihoul in Bertrix. Some spoke about August 8, others were in doubt about the exact day. Miss M.H. is sure that she had seen Nihoul the evening before the kidnapping on the Croix-Mauray-square in Bertrix. A young female cook of the near bye camping has seen Nihoul just past midnight standing on the side of the road, next to the parked van of Dutroux. 'Our working day was over, I drove home with a group of friends', she told. 'We were near Herbeumont, near Bertrix. That's where that van was. We slowed down, because it seemed as if they had car trouble. That's why I could take a good look at the people who were standing next to it. About one of them I'm sure. That was Nihoul. I remember this so well, because soon after the disappearance of Laetitia the gendarmerie stopped by the camping to ask a few question.'"

His defence pleaded that Nihoul was only guilty of the drug offences, gangsterism and trade in humans." Nihoul has been convicted so many times for financial fraud that it apparently wasn't even interesting enough to repeat it in this article.

*) April 16, 2007, Gazet van Antwerpen (Gazette of Antwerp), 'Nihoul wil namen noemen die 'gecensureerd' zijn' ('Nihoul wants to name names that are 'censored''): "On June 22, 2004, Nihoul was sentenced by the court of assizes of Aarlen. He was found guilty of leading a gang of criminals involved in trade in drugs, cars, identity papers and humans. He was acquitted of facts that pertain to the kidnapping of children. He was released on probation on April 26, 2006."

[31] June 17, 2004, Planet Internet News (Netherlands), 'Dutroux schuldig aan drie moorden' ('Dutroux guilty of three murders'): "The jury was divided over the question if businessman Michel Nihoul is guilty of kidnapping. But Dutroux's co-defendant Michel Nihoul, according to the court of Aarlen, is not guilty or an accomplice in the kidnapping, rape or murder of the girls. That is what the three judges ultimately have decided. The judges had to decide on that, because the twelve members of the jury declared him guilty with a minimal majority of seven to five. In these instances Belgian law states that the judges have to decide. The possible involvement of Nihoul in the kidnappings really was the key question in the Dutroux trial. Because he now has not been found guilty, there really isn't any evidence for the theory that has been going round in Belgium that there were larger networks of pedophiles behind the kidnappings of the girls." [Yes, a rather bizarre statement]

[32] *) July 3, 2004, De Morgen (Belgian newspaper), 'Tien redenen voor een proces-Dutroux-bis' ('Ten reasons for another Dutroux trial'):

"The jury has judged that Nihoul was a member of the Nihoul-Dutroux- Lelievre gang which was active in human- and drug trade, car swindle and fake identities. His claim that he would have infiltrated the Dutroux gang as a police informant is not being believed... Seven of the twelve jurors are convinced of the involvement of Dutroux in the kidnappings [of Dutroux's victims]. Such a vote is only normal, as against the numerous witness testimonies, suspicious transactions or physical- and phone contacts, Nihoul only countered with lies, also at the trial. The professional judges have saved Nihoul. That has been confirmed by the jurors. The jury did not pass on the hot potato of the question of guilt of Nihoul to the professional magistrates. "It was a real vote", multiple jurors say to De Morgen, "and this was the result. We thought: the court will follow the majority. But that's exactly what it didn't do. That was a shock to many of us. That's not what we expected." All questions about ties between Dutroux and a possible organized form of child trade and -abuse remain open. We still don't know what happened to Julie and Melissa. For seven year Langlois has hold on to the thesis that they died from starvation during the jail sentence of Dutroux in late 1995, early 1996. At the trial this version turns out to be untenable. Even the nutrition expert, who wrote a report at his [Langlois'] orders, says that. But what did happen?... We know nothing about it. Because Langlois wasn't even willing to identify the DNA of more than twenty unknown individuals who had been in the basement of Dutroux, just as the sperm of an unknown individual which had been mixed in with material belonging to Julie. He didn't want to compare that DNA with a number of known pedophiles, in part from Nihoul's circle of acquaintances... Langlois wanted to get everything out of the picture which wouldn't lead to the lonesome pervert... He has refused to take up in the dossier the official reports dealing with the connections of Nihoul to organized crime. Supposedly because they didn't have anything to do with the kidnappings. Five heads of investigation came to complain at the trial: Langlois had forbidden them to look into the milieu of organized crime, neither around Nihoul, nor the mafia in Charleroi. Within the federal police there still is a gendarme hierarchy active, which allows the officers to put pressure on their subordinates. To this day, ex-gendarme officers, under the watchful eye of their former superiors, come to give false testimonies, even under oath. Examining magistrate Tollebeek, tasked with the investigation into the kidnapping of Sabine, confirmed that, just as honorary prosecutor Poncelet of Mons."

*) 2004, Herwig Lerouge, 'Het Dossier Nihoul: De knoop in het proces-Dutroux' ('The Nihoul Dossier: The knot in the Dutroux trial'), p. 209: "Langlois doesn't exactly know who did what. He never clarified the circumstances in which Julie and Melissa were kidnapped, raped and murdered. He doesn't know when, why, by whom, or on whose account this has happened. He doesn't how it is possible that the two girls survived in the basement of Dutroux for 106 days, in the absence of their kidnapper."
Also, don't forget note 25, about Nihoul having been spotted at Laetitia's kidnapping site.

[33] The individual stories of these victims have largely been written down in the 1999 book 'The X-Dossiers'. Certain details in the biography are referenced in the appendixes or later on in the article.

[34] That's the basic story one gets when reading through reports of children being abused in networks. In most cases involving children born in the West the abuse starts at home, which of course includes foster homes (can't really vouch for the second and third world).

*) December 13, 1987, Syracuse Herald Journal (based on an AP story), ''Blaming the devil' hurts prosecution of child abuse cases': "The federally funded American Humane Association in Denver says 113,000 child molestations vere reported nationwide in 1985, the last year for which statistics were compiled. That figure is up from 100,000 reported cases in 1984... In 75 percent of reported cases, abuse comes from within the family, [AHA spokeswoman Katie] Bond said..."

*) Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) website, statistics section, information based on the 2005 National Crime Victimization Survey from the Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Department of Justice: "Contrary to the belief that rapists are hiding in the bushes or in the shadows of the parking garage, almost two-thirds of all rapes were committed by someone who is known to the victim. 73% of sexual assaults were perpetrated by a non-stranger — 38% of perpetrators were a friend or acquaintance of the victim, 28% were an intimate and 7% were another relative."

[35] A major clue is the regular references to high society figures able to stay out of sight in the wake of a major child abuse scandal. Examples:

*) The Dutroux case is a pretty clear example in which all leads to a larger network surrounding Dutroux and Lelievre were ignored.

*) June 6, 1996, The Guardian, 'True scandal of the child abusers': "From East Belfast's Kincora Boys' Home, via Leicestershire, Staffordshire and London, to the children's homes of Clwyd, we have witnessed 25 years of cover-up. Cover-up, not to protect the innocent but to protect the regularly named elements of the British establishment who surface whenever widespread evidence of child abuse is exposed. From the public schools right through to the Catholic and Anglican churches, child abuse has been allowed a special place of sanctuary... Social workers, police, security services, local and national political figures remain the common factors in the fall-out from the [child abuse] inquiries... In case after case the cycle is described -- a child is 'taken into care', then abused in a home, handed on to an outside paedophile ring and out on to the rent-boy/prostitution circuit beyond, if they live that long... Journalists find themselves battling first with authority, then with the libel laws, to publish the truth about a vast web of abuse."

*) June 3, 2003, The Guardian, 'Toulouse officials ordered murder, says serial killer' (longer extracts can be found in the column on the left): "Alègre [a jailed serial killer], a policeman's son, organised the city's prostitution business, providing under-age girls for sadomasochistic orgies at a courthouse in the city and at a chateau owned by the town council."

*) July 21, 2004, The Daily Mail, 'Was Jo killed by a sex cult? For 14 years Leeds student Joanna Parrish's murder in France has been unsolved. Now the arrest of a serial killer poses the chilling question: was she murdered by a cabal of high powered men obsessed with rape and torture?' (longer extracts can be found in the column on the left): "The case for the conspiracy theorists was further strengthened in 1984 when a horribly mutilated woman escaped from a house in a village close to Auxerre and led police to a cellar where she and two others had been imprisoned for up to three months and subjected to appalling abuse. A list of 50 people, rumoured to include several French 'notables' who had paid various rates to torture and abuse the women, was discovered by police. It would later go missing from a courtroom in Auxerre, and only Claude Dunand, a factory worker and his wife, Monique - who both lived in the house - were jailed."

*) April 25, 2005, Time Magazine -- Europe, ' A Town Called Angers; How one community in rural France is coping with allegations of systematic sexual abuse of children': "Police are still searching for a group of men, who the children say arrived at Franck V.'s apartment in suits and ties, with their faces hidden behind masks — a striking contrast to the largely uneducated, unemployed defendants who fill the courtroom in rumpled sweatshirts and scuffed sneakers. Franck V.'s lawyer Pascal Rouiller says he is convinced the men were part of a sophisticated network of pedophiles who tapped into Angers' underbelly as word of the prostitution ring spread. They brought in customers who "had money, made appointments, and were punctual," Rouiller says. One man paid €458 for one sexual assault on a child, and Franck V.'s wife, Patricia, regularly took in about €1,200 a month. "Franck had telephone calls from the whole of France," says Rouiller. "He's a poor miserable man with no intelligence. He had no reason to have contact with people in Montpellier or Lille." Much like the pedophilia scandal that rocked Belgium in 1996, Angers is awash in suspicions that a wider ring of wealthy customers was among the child rapists, and is still at large."

[36] We could see examples of this in the Franklin case, the Mirano case (VM1) while X1 also discussed this subject extensively. Additionally, take this report from England: April 1, 1990, Sunday Times, 'Satanic ring forces families to suffer from a hell on earth; Sexual abuse': "At the age of eight, Kevin's father had introduced him to a group of men who performed rituals involving sexual and sadistic acts. He talked about watching pornographic videos and being made to take part in them. He said he had been drugged and that, on occasions, animals were sacrificed he had been warned that a similar fate awaited him if he ever told anyone what was happening. Charlie named 20 other children who were sometimes present. He also named some of the adults, giving a list which included a teacher from his own school. By the time Charlie revealed this to his mother he was 11 years old and deeply involved so much so that he had become a recruiter, bringing in other children in exchange for money."

[37] Discussed in detail by X1. Trying to get new children to voluntarily have homosexual sex is very popular ("You're a big girl now, don't be childish", etc.), just as overwhelming young, extremely neglected children (like X1) with presents and attention, soon followed by the abuser sexually touching the victim. If the child allows the touching, i.e. "volunteers" (after given a few hints by the abuser, thinks: "this person is so good to me, why am I so childish or selfish to refuse him something as simple as sex?"), the game continues with regular beatings for "underperforming" with accusations that as worthless the child already is, he or she can't even satisfy the one person who truly "loves" him or her.
There are several variations, but this is approximately how the initial psychological game works. Often, in later stages everything is just about avoiding the pain or not having to deal with the guilt of someone else being tortured for the mistakes you made. Depends on the type of network a child ends up in. In case of X1, a pretty sophisticated one.

[38] *) First of all, there are a few problems with classifying "abducted" children. A number of questions that could be asked:

- How often has a child gone missing before? Is the child just running away again? Did it voluntarily go to a particular person or group who might have persuaded it?

- How long should the child be missing before it's added it to 'missing persons' statistics? (about 90% of children reported missing resurface within 72 hours; only about 2-3 percent are long term missing children (gone for over a month) or children who were found dead)

- In case the child is found dead, was it really kidnapped or just simply murdered?

- Was the child abused and maybe often taken places against her will by a network only to be returned later on? (apparently very common, judging from statements of children who ended up in sexual abuse networks)

*) However, just because it can be challenging to categorize missing persons, the authorities apparently are not interested in doing so. As with Belgium, Britain also doesn't have a (reliable) centralized database on missing children.
October 31, 2001, The Daily Mail, 'How 100,000 children go missing every year': "A child goes missing in Britain every five minutes, according to a report today. Some 100,000 children disappear every year, says the study by the charity Parents and Abducted Children Together. It warns that the figure, based on police reports, may even be an underestimate because there are no reliable national statistics on the issue. The charity is pressing the Government to set up a department within the Home Office to centralise information on missing children and develop a national policy on the problem. Alternatively, it wants a national information and help centre devoted solely to the disappearance of youngsters who have run away, been 'thrown away' by their families or who have been abducted by a parent or a stranger. While the majority of the youngsters are eventually found and reunited with their families, they are at risk while missing, said the charity's founder Lady Meyer. She said it was an 'absolute scandal' there were no nationally gathered statistics on missing children. 'Without reliable data, we cannot know the nature of the problem, which makes it impossible to create policies to protect our children. 'It is shocking that in this country we have statistics for the number of dogs that go missing every year but not for the number of children who go missing. 'One estimate, which we gathered from reports made to police, is that 100,000 children go missing each year but the problem could be much bigger than that.'... Lady Meyer said: 'We need to follow the example of the U.S., which conducted a study in 1990. 'Because they have detailed statistics on how many children go missing and why, the U.S. government has been able to develop policies to protect youngsters.' [do they?]"

*) There's another reason, of course, for unreliable statistics and that is complicity of Justice officials in these child abuse networks. The Veronique Dubrulle case, described by X1, seems to one example in which a girl's death from sexual- and other physical abuse was labeled by complicit doctors as a "natural" (chronic disease). The same thing appears to have happened in the following case:

June 3, 2003, The Guardian, 'Toulouse officials ordered murder, says serial killer': "Alègre, a policeman's son, organised the city's prostitution business, providing under-age girls for sadomasochistic orgies at a courthouse in the city and at a chateau owned by the town council. In a letter from his cell sent to TV presenter Karl Zero at the weekend, Alègre said that the former prostitutes, known as Patricia and Fanny, were telling the truth about the murders of two other prostitutes which they had witnessed but which he had previously denied... A vice squad detective allegedly assured Alègre, who worked in the police canteen, that [one of] the murder[s] would be classified as suicide..."

[39] March 18, 2003, Zembla (Dutch TV), 'De X-dossiers - Part II': "Between 1973 and 1996, 43 children have disappeared without a trace in Belgium, and sometimes were found back murdered; disappearances and murders which have never been solved."

[40] *) August 26, 2006, Daily Telegraph, 'How Natascha was robbed of her childhood' (this report is apparently referring to alleged long term kidnappings for sexual abuse): "Every year, thousands of children go missing without trace - 200 of them in Austria alone, a staggering 1,850 in Italy. In Belgium, where Marc Dutroux abducted and killed four female victims, 1,022 disappear annually; and in Britain, around 400. Experts fear that hundreds are being held in private prisons."

*) 1999, Marie-Jeanne Van Heeswyck, Annemie Bulté and Douglas De Coninck, 'De X-Dossiers', p. 373: "On February 13, 1997, Bille writes to all the district attorney's offices in the country, with the simple question of how many unsolved murders (or disappearances) there have been on persons younger than 30 years old... Eight district attorney's offices will simply leave the letter unanswered: Antwerp, Mechelen, Turnhout, Tongeren, Liege, Leuven, Charleroi and Namen... This is the whole of answers, late April 1997 [only one taken up here]... Brussels: 51 murders since 1991 and 3.000 disappearances, among them 1.300 minors... How broad the interpretation abilities of the magistrates can be, shows from the results coming from Brussels [which is many, many times higher than the other cities, even when taking into account the size of the population]... At a certain point in Brussels, by way of silent protest - 'Our resources are too limited' - dozens of old dossiers are reopened and normal daily activities are almost ceased. By way of demonstrating, the district attorney's office appears to benefit from interpretating a question about missing persons as maximalistic as possible. Still, this fact - 1,300 missing children in Brussels - suddenly makes the fax of X1 a lot less insane."

[41] *) July 1, 2001, The Independent on Sunday, 'An invisible death': "Why do some children who are killed become media icons, while others are forgotten or ignored? For a story to catch on, it seems, it has to echo some deep-seated fear [abduction by strangers]... Child homicide is something which most of us would rather not think about, but it happens every week. In the six months from June to November last year - the months surrounding the deaths of Sarah Payne and Gwen Clapperton's daughter, Daniella Hurst - around 50 children in the UK were murdered, unlawfully killed or died in circumstances which subsequently required special investigation (a Part 8 Case Review) or will be the subject of a trial in the coming months. In July and August 2000 alone, there were over 20 cases of child murder or manslaughter. A handful of these cases had their brief moment of infamy - a photo, a headline with the word "tragedy" - but it's unlikely that you've heard of more than a couple . They're too mundane, too ordinary, to command attention."

In a few other articles in British newspapers it was reported that many cases of child deaths involving (sexual) abuse were not classified as such, because doctors and social workers usually want to be 200 percent sure before they dare to bring up this extremely touchy subject. There also were sporadic examples of past murders on street children (a favorite target of abuse networks) going completely unreported.

*) December 15, 2002, The Observer, 'Dispatches: There are certain rules in the missing persons game': "It is unlikely you have ever heard of Hannah Williams: the discovery of her body merited only a few lines in the 'news in brief' columns of the newspapers. There were appeals in the local paper, but for a long time it was thought that Hannah had simply run away and would probably come back. Somehow, the national media just never got hooked on the case. There are all sorts of reasons for this, many of them wrapped up in issues about class - Hannah just wasn't the right sort of missing girl to grab the public's attention. Her mum was a single parent and Hannah had gone missing before. Police in London are already overwhelmed with missing runaways from broken homes. The search for Hannah wasn't helped either by a positive sighting by a friend, who said that Hannah was still alive long after she had probably been killed. In recent years, missing persons have become a commodity to be weighed up and assessed for their media potential and police officers have begun to talk about them as such...

Hannah Williams wasn't the only one to be forgotten. There has been no national media campaign about Daniel Nolan, a 14-year-old who went missing on New Year's Day 2002 from the seaside town of Hamble, in Hampshire... His fishing gear was found where he had left it, but Daniel had disappeared. He was described by his parents as a mature and responsible boy whose disappearance was completely out of character. On the surface, it seems Daniel was equally as worthy of attention as Milly Dowler, but didn't get it because of his gender.

Christine and Peter Boxall know this all too well. Their son, Lee, was 15 when he went missing on the way to a football match in south London in September 1988. He was one of the first cases to be taken up by the Missing Persons Bureau, as it was then. There have been no sightings in 14 years, despite numerous local appeals. His father said: 'I often think if it had been our daughter it may well have been very different. Even today, boys of 15 rarely get publicity because boys can look after themselves, can't they?'

There are certain rules in the missing persons game. Don't be a boy, don't be working class, don't be black. As for persistent runaways, children in care or teenagers with drug problems. . . forget it. Milly Dowler was the perfect missing person: a beaming photogenic angel from a comfortable, middle-class home... One spokeswoman from the southeast London police area who dealt with the Hannah Williams case told me that her mother 'wasn't really press- conference material' and that the girl's background made it difficult to build a campaign around her..."

[42] In the 1980s in the United States talk about MPD (DID) became almost immediately synonymous with ritual abuse and Satanism. Examples are the McMartin-, Jonestown-, Aquino-, Franklin-, Finders-, Children of God-, and numerous other, smaller cases. Also in the early Dutroux dossier there are several examples of victims claiming that MPD is deliberately created and maintained in victims, and again this is tied to ritual abuse and usually Satanism.

[43] February 2003, Merck website, 'Dissociative Identity Disorder'

[44] The False Memory Syndrome Foundation (FMSF) was founded in 1992, several years after a wave of reports in the United States and Britain about large-scale child abuse, ritual abuse and Satanism. The main founders, Pamela and Peter Freyd, were accused by their daughter, a Ph.D. in psychology working at a prestigious psychology institute, of child abuse. She also claimed her father had been abused himself as a child. The FMSF publishes a newsletter. Certain members of the FMSF are consulted by newspapers to "objectify" stories of child abuse while others make their living by defending individuals accused of child abuse around the country. The FMSF is closely linked to certain organized skeptics organizations as CSICOP.

[45] A summary can be found in False Memory Syndrome Foundation appendix. A lot of the intelligence/mind control information has come from Dr. Colin A. Ross, M.D., who received many FOIA documents pertaining to US government mind control research.

[46] Juni 1998, Harald Merckelbach for Skepter, edition 11, 'Opkomst en ondergang van Getuige X1' ('Rise and downfall of X1').

Of course, the whole tone of the article is condescending and "sceptic" from the very first sentence and a number of disinformation arguments are featured: the Oliver Trusgnach case (name spelled wrongly as Trusnach), the fact that X1 was forced to participate in the abuse and murder (although Merckelbach forgets to clearly mention X1 was coerced and that this is a very common tactic), examples that De Baets manipulated (all proven false two years after this article appeared) or arguing that media sensation was the cause of X1 initially being taken seriously by some of the newspapers. As expected, X1's psychological disorder is exploited as much as possible (X1 "suddenly remembered" all kinds of details about her past with the "help" of psychiatrist) and the old criticism on the ultra-right is just a conspiracy theory. There are other exploits used by Merckelbach, but you get the point.

[47] February 2003, Merck website, 'Dissociative Identity Disorder'

[48] 1998, Regina Louf, 'Zwijgen is voor daders - De getuigenis van X1' ('Silence is for perpetrators - The testimony of X1'), p. 299: "This book first began to take form in July 1988, when for the first time I wrote down in a notebook with pencil my memories and nightmares. I found out that I had different styles of handwriting, and that each of those handwritings belonged to very distinct parts of ´me´. That was very frightening, even more so because I often couldn´t remember what I had written down, and when I reread the pages I stumbled across long-repressed memories. I hadn't really forgotten the facts, they had only been distributed over different personalities, each with its own traumas... In a timeframe of six weeks I wrote down large parts of the book that ultimately would end up with the BOB..."

[59] See 'the accused' appendix for more information on the Dolo, which has been discussed in books as 'The X-Dossiers' and 'The Nihoul Dossier' and named by victim-witnesses as X1, X2 and Nathalie W. There's a lot of direct (testimonial) evidence and circumstantial evidence about a paedophile network having surrounded Nihoul and various visitors of the Dolo.

Example: 2004, Herwig Lerouge, 'Het Dossier Nihoul', p. 123-124 (PV 22.820, October 11, 1996): "I brought Mr. Nihoul to Etterbeek to a house in the Atrebatenstreet. He invited me out to the first floor because he only wanted to pay inside. When I came in, there were three girls of twelve, thirteen years, almost without clothes, only in a nightgown. I saw they were very young because they didn't have any pubic hair. Two of them were foreign, the third I don't know. In the room there also were two men, dressed. Nihoul forced me to take off my clothes and when I refused he threw me out with my shirt and my coat... it certainly was Nihoul... I am also certain that it was the house in the Atrebatenstreet [Les Atrebates club]."

[60] 2004, Herwig Lerouge, 'Het Dossier Nihoul', p. 125-126: "According to Max, Doudou was a contact of an ex-teacher of the Adolphe Max-atheneum. Doudou and the teacher 'made paedophile videos', he claimed. He would have heard Doudou and Nihoul repeatedly talk 'about cages for children, to make them suffer, and about videos imported from the United States on which black children were tortured before being burned in the cage. That was some time in 1992-'93'. 'Dolores Bara knows all about it', he added to that. Has this been checked out? An anonymous letter to the King's prosecutor Bourlet confirms that 'Vanhuyneghem often went to Thailand and said you could find boys there." 'I know that Nihoul is not a paedophile', says Max. He is a notorious gangster, without morals, who can be bought for little. He even says that 'Nihoul has learned to kidnap children, to earn money'. He even tried it in the Dolo, but Forgeot [co-owner of the Dolo] said: 'That's not the way you do that'." Originally from PV 116.166, December 19, 1996.

[63] October 2, 1975, Long Beach Press-Telegram, 'Porno death films probed: "... the films, which Horman said were made in South America, possibly Argentina... One film was reported to show sex acts between an actress and one or more actors. Then, according to the reports, a knife is produced and the actress, unaware of the true nature of her role, is stabbed to death and dismembered."

[64] *) Questioning of Jean-Paul Raemaekers during his 1995 trial: "- Why did you tape those [rape] scenes? - You could earn a lot of money doing that. You could also exchange those videos. - With who? - That happened within a large paedophile network that is active in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. I myself was only a small link. - Who were the others? - I do not wish to testify about that."

Two other examples of talk about a network and the swapping of pictures, video and children:

*) August 19, 1996, The Times, 'Belgian case throws light on global scourge; Murder': "In Britain alone police estimate that there are 200 paedophile rings that allow people to swap child pornography and even children... Within the rings, paedophiles exchange photographs, contact magazines and addresses. Chief Superintendent Brian Mackenzie, president of the Police Superintendents' Association, said yesterday: "They operate like any other special interest group. Networks and rings form by word of mouth. "Individuals will exchange pornography and quite often they will pass compliant juveniles between groups. The whole thing spreads out and it is difficult for the police to break down." The networks can be very complex and in one case children who had run away from homes had been lured to London by a "safe" name and address, forced into a paedophile ring and, as they got older, were made to abuse recent arrivals. The aim was to turn the children into perpetrators, making it less likely that they would complain to the police... Children have been kidnapped by paedophile rings who make and sell videos featuring child sex abuse."

*) January 19, 2002, The Independent, 'In Foreign Parts: Seaside town slowly reveals its macabre secrets': "The little girl [allegedly] was brought by a distinguished-looking Belgian in his 50s to the apartment of Thierry D, a brutal man in his 30s who collected human skulls and allegedly belonged to a large paedophile sex network... The evidence, including detailed statements by children, suggests that Thierry and Myriam D, and other impoverished parents, sold their children's services to wealthier people, including the bailiff, a shopkeeper to whom they owed money and the 64-year-old priest. All are among those arrested. This allegedly developed into organised sex parties with children in a farm house near Ypres in Belgium. The sessions were filmed for sale as videos by a French man and his son, who owned a clandestine video business in Ostend."

[65] July 29, 1990, Sunday Times, 'Teenager 'confessed' to filming snuff movie'

[66] July 9, 1989, Sunday Times, 'Rape expert: the witness they never call; Ray Wyre': "What Wyre knows about the distorted male mind is not pleasant. He learnt most, he says, from the four months he spent on a Churchill Fellowship in the United States with the FBI, studying the treatment of rapists and murderers and their victims. From that experience, he can say that he has seen everything including films of killings and mutilations which the murderers themselves took. Most of us, he says, are quite unaware of what actually is done to victims; we are protected from the horrible truth by the limits of what is printable."

[67] False [Abuse] Allegations Action Scotland: "Wyre’s opinions were further questioned regarding snuff videos. He is quoted as having viewed snuff films first hand in America. Apparently however, when contacted, he denied having seen one, and claimed that what he saw was instead a sophisticated simulation. Though he insists that the FBI did have such films in their possession and claimed that they were available in England, both the FBI and Scotland Yard dispute this."

[68] April 8, 1997, The Toronto Star, 'Film alleges pedophiles killed boys': "Dutch police will be among the television viewers today of a British documentary that reports a pedophile ring in Amsterdam and nearby Hoofddorp videotaped the snuff deaths of homeless boys. It's not the first time Dutch police have heard the allegation, but investigations in 1990 and 1993 yielded no concrete result."

[69] April 6, 1997, The Mail on Sunday, 'Briton hunted over 'snuff movies'': "A British man is being hunted in connection with the suspected killing of young boys for so-called 'snuff movies'... Detectives, who identified John from pornographic videos seized in raids on the homes of sex offenders, were already searching for him... Three of the men have independently claimed direct knowledge of the production of paedophile 'snuff' movies, but all deny involvement. One told police that he saw five videos in which boys died after being sexually abused. He has identified a house in Hoofdorp, near Amsterdam, where he says some of the videos were made and has led police to a lake where he says he was told the bodies of the five boys were dumped."

[70] April 8, 1997, The Toronto Star, 'Film alleges pedophiles killed boys': "The British newspaper The Guardian on Saturday detailed one video known as the Bjorn Tape, allegedly made in Amsterdam in 1990, which begins with a man entering a room carrying the limp figure of a young boy, his hands tied and his head covered with a hood." Judging by the description of this movie, it could easily have been faked. It was later reported by British and Dutch sources that the boy in the tape was found alive.

[71] June 29, 1997, Mail on Sunday, 'Outrage as snuff film pervert is free early': "The release of 32-year-old Warwick Spinks, who claims to have been involved in the murder of several children while making 'snuff' movies, has raised a storm of protest... It was a lurid confession from Spinks in an ITV documentary last April that sparked an investigation into the making of `snuff' movies in the Dutch town of Hoofddorp. In a conversation recorded by undercover police in Amsterdam, Spinks offered to supply a video in which a 10-year-old boy was killed, and said an associate had seen a boy die during the making of another film. Scotland Yard and Dutch police launched an inquiry which failed to find any evidence, but they are furious that Spinks, whose seven-year sentence was reduced to five on appeal, is being released so soon... Spinks was convicted of abducting a child, taking indecent photographs and a serious sexual assault in Feb-ruary 1995. His 14-year-old victim, described by Spinks as a rent-boy, had been on the run from a children's home in the North of England. Judge John Gower QC said Spinks had picked up the boy before taking a number of indecent photos during a gay sex session. Spinks later drugged his victim and took him to Amsterdam where he was sold to a homo-sexual brothel."

[73] September 28, 2000, Aftonbladet (Sweden), 'Pedofil-företag mördade barn inför kamera' ('Pedophile company murdered children in front of camera'): "The Pedophile network had branched out over the whole world. But the center was located in Murmansk, in North Russia... At the same time it is revealed that several large financial companies are involved..."

[74] October 1, 2000, The Observer, 'Special Investigation: British link to 'snuff' videos'

[75] September 28, 2000, Aftonbladet (Sweden), 'Pedofil-företag mördade barn inför kamera' ('Pedophile company murdered children in front of camera'): "The Pedophile network had branched out over the whole world. But the center was located in Murmansk, in North Russia... At the same time it is revealed that several large financial companies are involved... The Russian bosses in the organization so far revealed are these three: Dmitri Kuznetsov, 31, was arrested in Moscow in February, but was released shortly thereafter after the Russian parliament passed an amnesty law to reduce the number of internees. Valeri Ivanov, the one who is now in prison and who, himself, appears in many recordings where he torments young children. Andrej Valeri Minaev, formerly of the Soviet military, is the official owner of a company that primarily distributes TV video cassettes. He was also released after the amnesty... More than 1700 persons are suspected of having bought child pornography over the Internet...Eight of the arrested yesterday are Italians, but one is a Russian citizen. Of the Italians, one is a civil servant within the health care ministry, married without children. Another is a business leader, and a third is a civil servant in Milano. Irreproachable citizens whom no one would suspect... The pictures are unbearable for normal people to watch. Here are prolonged rape sequences with children begging to be spared. They are abused until they faint. Then they are murdered before the cameras... Yes, there are even scenes of actual autopsies on young people... In the 'product catalog' of the pedophiles were pictures of a 10-year-old girl who had been killed by hanging. A five-year-old girl with a grimace of pain as she is raped. An adult is killed by gradual crushing. The worst images are labeled 'necros pedo' and showed children being killed during abuse. Such cassettes sold for (US) $20,000. The arrested persons had specifically asked for assurances that the children actually were killed and that it was not simulated by trick photography... The scandal dominated the magazines and broadcasts on Thursday, after broadcasts with child pornographic pictures had been shown on TV during prime time. The opposition immediately demanded that the manager (Mr. Rais) of the state-owned TV company be dismissed. The matter was discussed in the chamber of deputies. "What has happened is absolutely unforgivable," said the leader of the opposition and the media boss Silvio Berlusconi, whose TV station chose not to show the images, according to Reuters. The newspaper La Republica devoted three pages to the operation, which has international branches. In an editorial, the competitor Corriere della Serra wrote that the extent of the affair is horrifying. "We could never have imagined that thousands of wealthy, cultivated people in the midst of society are taking pleasure in watching small children being tortured and killed." The special division of the police in Neapel for Internet-related crimes said that about 600 homes were searched in morning raids on Wednesday. According to the police, the key persons are three Russians who have kidnapped children from orphanages, amusement parks and [city] parks. Thereafter, the children were filmed as they were subjected to severe sexual abuse."

[76] October 1, 2000, Associated Press, 'Director Quits Over Child Porn': "The news director of Italian state television's primary station resigned Sunday, taking the blame for allowing graphic images of child pornography to air in a prime-time report. The broadcast, seen by more than 7 million people, stunned the country. In the ensuing uproar, RAI-TV came under attack from the Vatican, the Parliament, the president, the prime minister, politicians on both the left and the right, family and child advocates and a host other news organizations." There were no details on what was actually shown, but it's hard to imagine actual uncensored snuff or hard rape extracts were aired.

[77] I have not been able to find any news reports while going through the archives of many hundreds of US newspapers, including the New York Times and Washington Post. At the very least, the Russian pedophile and snuff ring has been severely underreported in the US.

[78] There were reports about the Morkhoven Workgroup's discovery in German, Dutch, Belgian, British and possibly other newspapers. Following is an excerpt from a British newspaper:

July 18, 1998, The Independent, 'Dutch porn ring exploited two-year-olds': "Dutch Police were investigating allegations yesterday that an international child pornography ring exploited toddlers as young as two and distributed their images worldwide via the Internet... The inquiry follows a report by a Belgian anti-[child]pornography group, Morkhoven, that it found thousands of computer discs in a flat in the Dutch seaside town of Zandvoort. The discs were loaded with pornographic pictures of children, the Dutch current affairs television programme NOVA reported. Morkhoven showed some of the images to the programme makers, who decided they were too disturbing to broadcast. A spokeswoman for NOVA said that the correspondent responsible for the report was in contact with the Dutch police, and added that all the alleged evidence was with Morkhoven... But the Berliner Morgenpost which has closely followed the case, reported in April about accusations of sloppy work by German and Dutch police. After much public outcry, Berlin prosecutors met in late April with Marcel Vervloesem, a private detective with Morkhoven. Mr. Vervloesem said he gave the police extensive evidence and the names of two previously unknown suspects."

[79] September 13, 1998, The Independent, 'No kind of hero; Marcel Vervloesem claims he cracked a child pornography ring. But should we believe him?': "Ulrich says he'll give Vervloesem more material when he gets back to Holland - he's got a secret store under the floorboards in his living room... Later he [Vervloesem] informs the police about the secret stash and on 28 June they return to the flat, carry out a thorough search, and find computer records under the floorboards, including a list of 300 names which is said to amount to an international Who's Who of suspected paedophiles. It includes Warwick Spinks, who was released from prison in Britain last July after being convicted of drugging and kidnapping a 14-year-old boy, and is now believed to be in Prague, and Lothar Gandolf, a notorious German paedophile."

*) February 9, 2003,, 'Van Estoril naar Zandvoort' ('From Estoril to Zandvoort'): "[Manuel Schadwald] would have worked for a while in a Rotterdam boys brothel of the now in Schiedam-living Lothar Gandolf, who also made "his" pupils available to all kinds of escort services. Not seldom to so-called men of standing."

*) 2005, Werkgroep Morkhoven (their translation): "Native from Thüringen in Germany, he had a perfect landing place between the Polish border and Holland. He soon collected enough funds to purchase his first brothel, and settled in Rotterdam. Lothar developed a concept of child prostitution with triple convolution: he supplied customers of sadists and he resold the children according to their endurance, either with his fellow-members, or to the producers of pornographic imageries. It required an important bearing, which made the fortune of the children’s frontier runners and filled the “softer” brothels at the less risk for their directors. “When one arrives at the Polish border”, he said, “You just have to release the child before the bridge, ask him to cross by foot and collect him after the border”. Three children had succeeded to runaway from his brothel in 1993. At the police station as they were shown pictures, they had recognized Manuel Schadwald; 11 years old Berliner a whom, according to the German authorities, had runaway. Thus began an operation widespread in Europe and which consisted in finding the customers before saving the children. Three officers reported to have seen Lothar with a boy they believed to be Manuel but they had not intervened, as they were afraid to "endanger the operation". It took another eighteen months of tortures, rapes and kidnapping of runaway children, before the Dutch police released around fifty of them from Lothar’ brothel. Manuel was no more among them." ... ction=get_

[82] January 29, 2005, Jan Boeykens (chair of the Morkhoven Workgroup) in an article published on Indymedia: "It is possible that the Kennemerland police blocked the investigation, because at the time a videotape was found in the flat of Ulrich on which S., a contact of the Dutch royal house, could be seen. According to Bart van W. of 'Kleintje Muurkrant' S. also appeared in a case in which certain judicial people were involved with children. The information from this story closely matches with the things the Morkhoven Workgroup already found out in this area."

[83] 1999, Marie-Jeanne Van Heeswyck, Annemie Bulté and Douglas De Coninck, 'De X-Dossiers', p. 390: "Only several years later it turns out that one floor above the cafe the post office box of a Dutch porn company is located. A completely innocent company, Antwerp detectives will conclude one year later. What they apparently don't know is that the name of the company later appears in the personal agenda of Robby van der Plancken, the Belgian who was brought in connection with the murder of his friend Gerrie Ulrich in the summer of 1998. In Holland this murder leads to the Zandvoort-scandal. In the apartment of a until then purportedly respectable citizen the police discovered more than 50,000 computer images of the most terrible forms of child abuse. Among the cd-roms of Ulrich there also are forms to 'order' children - baby's also, but in that case it's a bit more expensive. In the forms it is specified what the 'customer' can do with the child, how far he can go... In the Zandvoort-dossier there also are payment orders showing that Ulrich until just before his death regularly deposited large sums of money in the accounts of the porn company above cafe Les Routiers."

Also: April 19, 2004, Morkhoven Workgroup, 'The Sprout':

"Several years ago a Belgian and a European member of Parliament could see a similar movie at the home of Marcel Vervloesem of the Morkhoven Workgroup. On the video one could see how a crying four year old girl was raped in the doctor's cabinet by a criminal dressed as a doctor, while a 12 year old girl had to play nurse and came in with the necessary instruments on a platter... The videos are very expensive (up to 30,000 euros a piece) and primarily find their way to pedocriminal networks." ... utnl1.msnw

[85] Details on the intimidation and "accident" of Gina Pardaens-Bernaer can be found in the following books:

- 1999, Marie-Jeanne Van Heeswyck, Annemie Bulté and Douglas De Coninck, 'De X-Dossiers'

- 2004, Herwig Lerouge, 'Het Dossier Nihoul: De knoop in het proces-Dutroux' ('The Nihoul Dossier: The knot in the Dutroux trial')

- 2004, Douglas De Coninck, 'Dode Getuigen - Dertig mensen die niet zullen spreken op het proces Dutroux' ('Dead witnesses - Thirty people who will not speak at the Dutroux trial')

*) Of course, the Morkhoven Workgroup has also discussed Pardaens' intimidation and death in detail.

[86] Ibid. More details can be found in 'the apparently assassinated' appendix.

[87] 2004, Herwig Lerouge, 'Het Dossier Nihoul: De knoop in het proces-Dutroux' ('The Nihoul Dossier: The knot in the Dutroux trial'), p. 192. According the author, Jean Denis Lejeune made this comment on ZDF (German) television on January 30, 2001. It appears to be a reference to the deaths of Francois Reyskens (1995) and Bruno Tagliaferro (1995) and his wife (1998). This comment is entirely plausible, because on other occasions the parents of Julie have claimed there's a cover up in the Dutroux affair.

[88] See 'the accused' appendix for a number of quotes, including the sources.

[89] Although child support institutions have tried to make estimates, there are no really reliable numbers on children being kidnapped or killed by individual pedophiles and networks. Of the hundreds of thousands of reported missing children in the West each year, only a small percentage is found dead or will go permanently missing. Still, this number amounts to thousands, and with so many child deaths' mislabeled and unreported, the existence of large abuse networks, including many temporary kidnappings, is entirely possible. In addition to the reports below, also take a look at references 38 and 41.

*) July 1, 2001, The Independent, 'An invisible death': "In the six months from June to November last year - the months surrounding the deaths of Sarah Payne and Gwen Clapperton's daughter, Daniella Hurst -- around 50 children in the UK were murdered, unlawfully killed or died in circumstances which subsequently required special investigation (a Part 8 Case Review) or will be the subject of a trial in the coming months. In July and August 2000 alone, there were over 20 cases of child murder or manslaughter. A handful of these cases had their brief moment of infamy - a photo, a headline with the word "tragedy" - but it's unlikely that you've heard of more than a couple . They're too mundane, too ordinary, to command attention."

*) December 29, 2002, Sun-Sentinel: "Social workers cannot say how many of the youngsters who have slipped from their care have ended up dead. However, a national missing children's clearinghouse says 1,500 bodies of unidentified children lie in morgues or unmarked graves, many of whom, experts say, were likely foster children. Another 400 children nationwide, including some missing from state custody, have been gone for decades, raising fears that they, too, are dead.

Deaths of missing children are difficult to count for a number of reasons. Overburdened police and social workers say they don't have time to round up runaways, caseworkers do not always file missing person reports when foster children disappear, privacy laws keep details of the children's deaths secret, computer and medical problems can thwart police and medical examiners working on missing children cases."

*) 2006, Child Welfare Information Gateway, 'Child Abuse and Neglect Fatalities: Statistics and Interventions' (US numbers): "The National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS) reported an estimated 1,490 child fatalities in 2004... Many researchers and practitioners believe child fatalities due to abuse and neglect are still underreported. Studies in Colorado and North Carolina have estimated that as many as 50 to 60 percent of child deaths resulting from abuse or neglect are not recorded as such." ... tality.cfm

*) August 26, 2006, Daily Telegraph, 'How Natascha was robbed of her childhood' (this report is apparently referring to alleged long term kidnappings for sexual abuse): "Every year, thousands of children go missing without trace - 200 of them in Austria alone, a staggering 1,850 in Italy. In Belgium, where Marc Dutroux abducted and killed four female victims, 1,022 disappear annually; and in Britain, around 400. Experts fear that hundreds are being held in private prisons."

Additionally, an example of a (thwarted) plan to temporarily kidnap, abuse and torture a young girl, and record this on video (for distribution?):

*) May 16, 2007, VRT Nieuws, 'Parket rolt net op tijd pedofielenbende op' ('District attorney's office arrests a pedophile gang just in time):

"The Belgian and French police have arrested four pedophiles who in our country wanted to kidnap an underaged girl to sexually abuse her, the district attorney's office confirmed. Four Frenchmen, three men and a woman, had built a cage in an abandoned company building near Rouen to lock up the girl. Next to the cage a camera stood ready, just as sadomasochist attributes. The suspects also had a van with fake license plates."

[90] 1993, Jean-Pierre van Rossem, 'Hoe kom ik van de ground?' ('How do I get off the ground?'), p. 131

[91] Ibid., p. 138-140

[92] Following are two brief examples of senior executives of Scotland Yard, Interpol and Europol being aware of the existence of large paedophile networks.

*) August 25, 1996, The Observer, 'The Child Abusers: Paedophilia is not the preserve of a few sick individuals. It's a billion dollar business': "Bjorn Eriksson of Interpol believes there are 30,000 paedophiles organised in groups throughout Europe. Many are linked through the Internet, others are on the mailing-lists of pornographic magazines. Some are undoubtedly guilty of the kidnap, trade and murder of children. Scotland Yard's National Criminal Intelligence Service has a database of between 3,000 and 4,000 convicted or suspected paedophiles, many of whom will be part of the wider European network."

*) Europol: May 15, 2003, The Times, 'Head jailed over internet paedophile ring': "The head teacher of a Roman Catholic boys' school who was a member of an international internet paedophile ring was jailed for more than five years yesterday... When the network was broken up in an operation involving the FBI, US Customs and Europol, police uncovered thousands of images described as the "worst type ever seen by the investigating officers". More than 80 children from around the world have been identified as victims of abuse as a result of the material, but many more remain unknown."

[94] *) PV 116.020, October 28, 1996.

*) PV 151.511, May 14, 1997: "X1 signals that VdBogaert, Vander Elst, Bouty, Nihoul, Bert (Albert & Joost) and Emile Dellaert were present at the murder of Véronique Dubrulle. According to X1, the father is aware of the facts. Jacques Dubrulle is famous in the cinema milieu of Flanders."

[95] PV 116.026, November 13, 1996, 'Observation - Rape of X1 by Dr. de Schrijver': "Drs. de Schrijver and Waele signed the death certificate of Veronique Dubrulle (PV 116.020 rape and murder of Veronique)... Boss of UCO = Hanet... Description of the rape of X1 by only Schrijver when she was 14 years old (1983). Schrijver also raped Clo and Samy on other occasions. He participated in partouzes at the boss of UCO. Waele never raped her - he took girls of 7-8 years."

[96] PV 116.019, October 28, 1996, summary of claims made by X1: "Clo would have passed away between June and December '83."

[97] January 8, 1998, Annemie Bulté and Douglas de Coninck for De Morgen (large Belgian newspaper), 'The girl who gave birth in secret' (translated to English by someone from the Radical party website, and-or possibly the authors): "Thanks to research carried out at "Clo’s" school, the BSR investigators managed to guess who she was. After that, BSR officers Patrick De Baets and Philippe Hupez showed XI a series of class photos from the year 1981-82. XI not only pointed to the photos of Carine Dellaert, but also to another photo. According to XI, it was V. (she gave her first name). She added: "They killed her, too. Clo told me that she was called V." During questioning on 25 October, statement no. 116.018, XI said: "This happened in a house in Ghent. Clo was there, too […] They tortured her with knives and scissors. Someone broke a bottle and rubbed the fragments into her vagina. Then they cut her in various places with razor-blades." After this session of questioning, they no longer knew where they were at the 3rd Criminal Research Section. From a series of twenty photos, XI had managed to pick out two girls who had died shortly afterwards. After further research, the investigators not only came across the old file on the murder of Carine Dellaert, but also information concerning the second young girl. She was, in fact, called V., and had died in the middle of 1983 in Ghent. As regards the list of people present according to XI, some of the details were remarkable. As well as Michel Nihoul and a woman who was arrested in the Dutroux case, XI named her procurer T., the lawyer and the burgomaster mentioned above, and a businessman from western Flanders and his son. XI could not establish any links between all these people, except the fact that she had met them on various occasions at orgies. The investigators carried out research which showed that all the people present had professional links of one sort or another, links that were not apparent at first sight. The name of the man she indicated as Clo’s "procurer" was also remarkable. He had already appeared as a suspect in the old file at the Ghent Public prosecutor’s department. The man was known to the police for a series of sexual crimes."

To her great astonishment she noticed there was maternity clothing in it."
