Beyond the Dutroux Affair
The reality of protected child abuse and snuff networks the victim-witnesses | the investigators, the accused, the apparently assassinated

Warning: The information in this article is not suited for anyone below the age of 18, as it involves extreme sexual violence against children. A certain amount of normally-illegal visual evidence (it is censored) has been included.

Belgium's biggest secret. "What you have to understand, John, is that sometimes there are forces and events too big, too powerful, with so much at stake for other people or institutions, that you cannot do anything about them, no matter how evil or wrong they are and no matter how dedicated or sincere you are or how much evidence you have. This is simply one of the hard facts of life you have to face."
- Former CIA director and Cercle member William Colby giving advice to his friend senator John DeCamp, urging him to quit his investigations into the Franklin child abuse affair and to write a book about his experiences (The Franklin Coverup, 2nd edition, foreword).

"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 pedophile 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 6, 1996, The Guardian, 'True scandal of the child abusers.' These lines were written by the author of the article and are not quotes.

"I look at him [inspector De Baets], and I really want to believe him, but somewhere, I know that I will never make it. The people I have known are too powerful, too influential, too untouchable. I realize that; the investigators not yet."
- Victim-witness Regina Louf (X1) from Belgium describes her thoughts when she first began to testify in secret in September 1996 (1998, 'Zwijgen is voor Daders,' p. 203).

Ever since the Dutroux affair broke in August 1996, there have been rumors that its central character was part of a wider network of child abusers. Some might remember the video tapes that were allegedly found in Dutroux's houses and about which nothing was heard anymore (this actually was an unfounded rumor); others might remember statements from Dutroux about being a "pawn" in a network protected by police and justice officials. However, these reports are not even the tip of the iceberg of what has actually been going on in Belgium.

To really gain some understanding of what the Dutroux affair was all about, we need to take a step back and see all the other aspects which at least in the early years made up the Dutroux investigation. It will soon become obvious that by early 1997, Dutroux had become almost a mere footnote in a scandal that really had begun to threaten the very existence of Belgium. Besides a whole range of petty criminals, secret investigations were also being opened against an ever increasing amount of politicians, bankers, police officers, and magistrates.

It was only after a number of strategic changes in the investigative chain of command had been made that a beginning could be made with shutting down all the inconvenient parallel investigations which had sprung up in the weeks and months after Dutroux had been arrested. The cooperation of the vast majority of the media in this cover up has been crucial.

This article will attempt to spread the many forgotten and unreported details of the Dutroux affair to the English-speaking world, which not only in numbers, but also in terms of percentages, is much more open to conspiracy affairs than the Dutch, Belgians, or French (although things are rapidly changing in these countries too). There are a number of important differences between this article and previous publications though:

1) In this article you can find all the names of the alleged abusers which had to be taken out of mainstream books and publications to avoid massive libel suits.

2) A leaked official document from the Dutroux investigation has been included with this article, leaving no doubt these names have actually been mentioned (often repeatedly). I recommend you download both this article and the leaked document, and put both of them on the net in case this article disappears one day.

3) Because names are mentioned in this article, together with very extensive biographies, it was far easier to describe the big picture, which might be an important thing to do.*

* Then again, I'm a largely anonymous conspiracy theorist; the ones who wrote, for example, the book 'De X-Dossiers' were respected journalists. I can get away with theorizing about the big picture; they cannot.

Daily Mail paints picture of Portugal very similar to PEHI's 'Beyond the Dutroux Affair'
Additionally: a brief state of affairs on PEHI
October 21, 2007

First of all, I want to thank everyone who read -or attempted to read- the 'Beyond the Dutroux Affair' article, and especially those who commented on it and spread it around to friends, newspapers, and occasionally to their favorite artists.

You might think otherwise when reading newspaper or skeptics magazine articles on these subjects, but even when faced with such extremely disturbing facts as described in this article, when it is well-referenced, the vast majority of people (tens of thousands have come across it by now) remain very open-minded.

And that's quite amazing, considering that even I, by the time I reached part 15, regularly said to myself, "How the hell did I end up discussing this? Should I really go this far?" But then you go over the facts again, and if you want to prevent self-censorship for fear of being "discredited," you just have to address the obvious possibilities, no matter how uncomfortable they sound; and that's just what has been done. And you know what, judging from all the responses, PEHI is creating far more conspiracy theorists than skeptics.

Daily Mail on Dr. Kelly
Speaking of conspiracy theorists, the latest victim of this most unfortunate mental disease appears to be The Daily Mail. I just did my routine check of Prisonplanet and came across a Daily Mail article about Dr. David Kelly, the scientist who was found dead in the woods right after criticizing the WMD dossier in the run up to the Iraq invasion.

The newspaper discusses the new book of Norman Baker, a Member of Parliament, who conducted a year long investigation into the death of Dr. Kelly. What's so interesting is that the Daily Mail doesn't take the "skeptical" approach; it just lays out the story as told by Baker (actually, Baker wrote it, apparently without a lot of editing): Kelly was assassinated in a "wet operation," likely by CIA and MI6 assets. To make matters worse, official investigators have been covering up the crime and nosy investigators were tracked down and intimidated.

Editor's note: See the 13th edition of this publication for the truth about Dr. Kelly's murder.

This is quite an amazing article. I've recently gone through hundreds upon hundreds of British and US newspaper articles dealing with conspiracies and it is very, very rare for newspapers to not attempt to undermine the credibility of the conspiracy advocate (no matter what his or her rank) by personal attacks, one-sided reporting and deceptive arguments. It's quite amazing that Baker has been allowed to speak his mind so freely in such a major publication. Compare it for example with the article from The Independent, which offers a far more familiar approach.

Daily Mail on Casa Pia and McCann
Because of my article on the X-Dossiers, I've been asked several times about the Madelaine McCann case. A summary of my opinion is contained in an email reply from September 21:

"[I hardly followed the case, but] if I had to guess, the McCann's were smeared by the Portuguese police. One of the reasons I think that is is because in other cases of child abuse (Belgian) where the parents have been implicated, the parents always tried to keep a low profile. That's exactly the opposite of the McCann's. Also, in the few instances that I followed the McCann case I noticed how the Portuguese police used cherry-picked excerpts from the mother's diary which, I thought, were unjustly meant to paint the mother as someone who wanted to get rid of her daughter. But like I said, I hardly followed the case. "

Besides the David Kelly story, another highly revealing article can be found on the Daily Mail frontpage, this time about the Madelaine McCann case.

In 'Beyond the Dutroux Affair,' it was described how a cabal of highest level players, including judges, lawyers, top bankers, prime ministers, and aristocrats were involved in child abuse and snuff networks (going right up to Bilderberg and the Nazi Stay-Behind networks). It was also described how this cabal could place their own investigators in leading positions of the child abuse investigations and dismantle it by blocking important inquiries, putting detectives on false leads, and making carefully planned leaks to friendly newspapers.

The Daily Mail article relates the same thing, and although they largely quote someone else's opinion, it is clear they support the conspiracy point of view, for instance because they do not ridicule the victim-witnesses; at the same time they paint the worst picture possible of Goncalo Amaral, the police chief accused of manipulating the McCann investigation. A rather long excerpt (not about Amaral):

"As well as growing fears that Madeleine was abducted by a paedophile ring, they can have little hope of justice when leading Portuguese figures are allegedly involved in covering-up their own child sex scandal. Both cases [Casa Pia and McCann] - the two highest profile criminal investigations in the country since the end of the Portuguese military dictatorship in 1974 - have been riven by allegations of compromised police officers, high-level interference and vicious, virulent attacks on key witnesses.

Pedro Namora, a former Casa Pia orphan who witnessed 11 rapes on fellow orphans, during which they were tied to their beds, sympathises with the McCanns. He believes elements in the force have conspired to suppress both scandals, fearing damage to the country's reputation.

"Portugal is a paedophiles' paradise," said Mr. Namora, now a lawyer campaigning on behalf of the Casa Pia victims. "If all the names come out, this will be an earthquake in Portugal. There is a massive, sophisticated network at play here - stretching from the government to the judiciary and the police.

"The network is enormous and extremely powerful. There are magistrates, ambassadors, police, politicians - all have procured children from Casa Pia. It is extremely difficult to break this down. These people cover for each other, because if one is arrested, they all are arrested. They don't want anyone to know."

Now 44, Mr. Namora watched as friends sank into alcoholism, drug addiction and death after their traumatic childhood experiences at Casa Pia. "I was the only one who made it," he said. "What could I do? I couldn't keep silent."

He has received death threats and warnings about what will happen to his own children, after taking up the case when an orphan called "Joel" approached him, saying prominent paedophiles were using Casa Pia as a "supermarket for children."

Mr. Namora has been threatened after fighting on behalf of the abused children with whom he grew up.

After being telephoned by a stranger offering to pay off his mortgage, he was told the exact movements of his own three children, and warned that they and their father would come to a grisly end unless he shut up." ...

Teresa Costa Macedo, a former secretary of state for the family, has revealed that she knew about the attacks in the early Eighties - and that she had alerted General Antonio Ramalho Eanes, the then Portuguese president, about the allegations.

Mrs. Costa Macedo, who remained silent for two decades after being warned she would be killed if she spoke, now says that the caretaker "was just one element in a huge paedophile network that involved important people in our country. It wasn't just him [the caretaker]. He was a procurer of children for well-known people who range from diplomats and politicians to people linked to the media."

Although not a whole lot, in the past the British press has written very decent articles about child abuse networks in such countries as the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Italy, and Russia. But interestingly, there has seldom been any real follow-up on these initial articles and the British press continues to fail to write in depth about the child abuse scandals in their own country. Also in this case I've gone over hundreds of British news reports about child abuse going back to the late 1980s, but only a small percentage was interesting enough to be used in the 'Beyond the Dutroux Affair' article. This new Daily Mail article is a great addition; hopefully more will follow.
