The Dutroux Affair: A Child Sex Ring with “Child Sex Parties involving Judges, Politicians, Bankers and members of the Royal Family.”

(Summary from WakeUp-World.com) This case is important because it illustrates how investigations can be undermined by a cabal able to place its members in crucial positions of power, and how powerful people can be implicated in abusing children. The Dutroux affair was covered extensively by the mainstream media, and was huge news in Belgium, where 350,000 people took to the streets to protest the handling of the case, known as the famous White March, from a nation of just 10 million.

The case begins in 1995, when multiple young girls began disappearing around the area of Bertrix. Young girls had been disappearing in this area for a couple of years but the BOB (equivalent of the FBI) was unable to develop any solid leads. A breakthrough was made when a suspicious white van was reported, and the police were able to trace it to Marc Dutroux, a known pedophile. Dutroux had been released from prison just a few years earlier, after serving a third of his sentence, despite reservations among those involved in the hearing and his own mother, who had warned the parole board that he would certainly cause harm again.

It was also revealed that Dutroux, though unemployed and receiving welfare from the state, owned seven homes and lived quite lavishly, from his involvement in selling children and child porn. It turns out that his mother was right, and Dutroux was responsible for the recent abductions. Girls as young as 8 reportedly starved to death in a makeshift dungeon in his basement, after months of sexual abuse.

The knowledge of these horrible transgressions committed by Dutroux are widely available and thoroughly documented, and though disturbing, are not important enough to focus on this case. Now, I will attempt to highlight the incompetence of the investigating police, and the subsequent cover-up of evidence by the state. Police had investigated Dutroux multiple times without any arrests. Once, they entered his home and witnessed the outside of a makeshift dungeon in his basement, while two girls were being held and starved inside. They even reported hearing voices, though they said they believed Dutroux’s story that the voices were coming from the street outside.

Police ignored a tip from an informant, who said that Dutroux offered him between 3,000 and 5,000 dollars to kidnap young girls. Again and again, police failed to act on information, or acted with complete incompetence. Incredibly, Police had in their possession a video tape of Dutroux constructing the makeshift dungeon in one of his basements, and would have saved the lives of two girls who were being tortured while the police held on to the evidence, had they viewed the video tape and acted on it.

By September 1996, the official body count had reached 8, and public outrage over police incompetence mounted. Why had a known pedophile been released so early from his original prison term, and allowed to terrify a country while the police stumbled about, seemingly complicit in the carnage?

When the case transferred from the police to the courts, the coverup became much more egregious. The lead prosecutor, Jean-Marc Conorrette, was dismissed from the case, which drew huge criticism from across the nation. Conorette became a hero because it was his initiative that led to the police actually finding two girls in Dutroux’s captivity. He also was instrumental in finding the bodies of four more girls. Conorette would later break down in tears in court while describing the death threats he received when he was still involved with the investigation.

Fuel to the fire would be added when a highly regarded children’s activist, Marie France Botte, claimed that prosecutors were sitting on a politically sensitive list of high-profile customers of Dutroux’s thousands of video tapes.

Marc Verwilghen, the Flemish parliamentarian who became the most popular politician in the country after leading the inquiry into Dutroux, claimed that many in the Belgian establishment, including heads of government, refused to cooperate, and sought to stifle and ridicule his report. He claimed that magistrates and police were officially told to not answer certain questions, in what he described as a ‘characteristic smothering operation.’ He was further quoted as saying ‘For me, the Dutroux affair is a question of organized crime.’ A parliamentary panel revealed the names of 30 government officials it said were complicit in the hiding of Dutroux’s misdeeds, none have been punished.

The most important information on the case comes from a victim of Dutroux. Regina Louf was the first to come forward, and was candid about the abuse she received at the hands of Belgium’s child abuse networks. In 1996, she named and described in great detail, to a specially assembled police team, the people and places involved in the paedophile ring. Senior judges, one of the country’s most powerful politicians – now dead – and a very influential banker were included. The BBC article says,

“The sessions not only involved sex, they included sadism, torture and murder; and again, she described in detail, the place, the victims and how they were killed.”

She corroborated that one of Dutroux’s associates, Jean-Michel Nihoul, was instrumental in the abuse parties.

“At these parties Nihoul was a sort of party beast while Dutroux was more on the side.”

Nihoul had significant connections among Belgian political and financial elite. He confessed to organizing an orgy at a Belgian chateau attended by government officials. It emerged that Dutroux and Nihoul were part of a long distance child trafficking ring that imported children from Slovakia.

Let’s get back to the questioning of the witnesses. The primary witnesses to step forward all suffered from Dissociative Identity Disorder(DID). In 98% of DID cases, the person suffered extreme sexual abuse as a child. The abuse that the Dutroux witnesses attested to is beyond comprehension. Louf, and other witnesses, recounted being raped by dogs and snakes, and being forced to witness the murders of other children which were captured on video tape. That Louf spoke the truth about witnessing these murders is laid out here in an excellent manner.

She gave a tremendous amount of detail to her prosecutors that she simply could not have known without being there herself, and there is simply way too much evidence to lay it out here. I recommend reading the whole page, which is as long as a short book, as the research is simply phenomenal. She also reported being involved with Satanic rituals, which I will address in greater detail later in the post.

Despite evidence that linked Dutroux and Nihoul to abuse parties and murder snuff films, the prosecutor that replaced Conorette, Jacques Langlois, completely dismantled the investigation. He sent police out on false tips and helped spread disinformation in the media. Although nearly 100 high-profile people in government, religion, entertainment and finance being accused of involvement in child abuse, no one of significance other than Dutroux was ever jailed. Nine police officers would eventually be arrested in connection with the murders which also contained dozens of suspicious deaths among those who were helping the case. I have only presented a small picture of what amounts to a mountain of documentation on Dutroux. For further reading, look here and here.

Marc Dutroux’s lawyer, Xavier Magnee, has said that Dutroux was part of a criminal network supplying the sex trade. Magnee said Dutroux was a “small fish” working for a network with links to the police. He pointed out the failure of the police to process all the forensic samples discovered in a basement cellar in which Dutroux kept four of his captives. He said that some 6,000 hair samples found in the basement cellar where some of the victims were held had led to the discovery of 25 “unknown” DNA profiles. “There were people in that cellar that are not now accused,” said Magnee.

Magnee said prosecutors had ignored evidence that might have linked the ring to a Satanic cult called Abrasax, which is suspected of performing human sacrifices.

Dutroux says he abducted girls with police help. Marc Dutroux insisted that he was not a “lone predator” but part of a wider paedophile ring. He described himself as a victim, a “puppet in a show trial” who had to be put away to “hide the truth” and serve the interests of “organised corruption”. Dutroux said only 10% of the case had been examined. He asked why independent-minded policemen had been removed from the investigating team.

In 1991, Belgium’s former deputy prime minister, Andre Cools, announced that he was about to make some revelations about the mafia and their links to some of the most important people in Liege.

Cools had most imprudently announced to the Belgian press… that he would soon release startling evidence about corruption in Belgium’s growing arms industry and its ties to the Canadian billionaire Bronfman brothers, a number of major U.S. political figures and republican fat cats with influence reaching into the inner circles of the Bush White House.

Among the names that Cools promised to present evidence on were Dick Cheney, Neil Bush, Frank Carlucci, Donald Rumsfeld and members of the powerful Republican Barbour and Racicot clans who all own large shares in major arms manufacturers as well as Britain’s Jonathan Aitken, Thatcher’s secretary of state for defense who had large holdings in a string of British arms suppliers and was a leading figure in the Tory Party hierarchy.” (source)

Cools was shot dead. Before he could speak out.

The discovery of computer discs at Dutroux’s house, in 1996, “unraveled an international pedophile ring involving Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, the U.S., Great Britain, Japan and the United Nations and its agencies.” After Dutroux’s arrest in 1996, arrests were made in the Cool’s case. One of those arrested was Alain Van der Biest, a Socialist Minister, alleged to have close links with the mafia gangs of Liege.

Belgian TV came up with an anonymous witness who claimed that leading Socialist politician, Guy Mathot, had ordered Cools to be killed. In 1994 Mathot was charged with corruption over kickbacks paid to Belgium’s Socialist parties. Willy Claes was NATO Secretary General and a Belgian. He was caught up in the Mathot kickbacks thing and was forced to resign.

Melchior Wathelet was the top judge who released Dutroux from prison in 1991. Wathelet was Belgium’s judge at the European Court of Justice. He was Belgium’s Justice Minister at the time when Cools was shot dead. Cools’ son called for Wathelet and other top judges to be removed from office. In 1996 there were suggestions that the gangs involved in the Cools’ killing had been involved with Dutroux.

“By arresting Dutroux, the Belgian authorities were simultaneously able to round up many of the people responsible for the assassination of Cools. In the interim, Dutroux led police to the burial site of four young girls, all of whom had been ritually murdered by his pedophile colleagues. Within a short time, over 30 people had been arrested, including a number of high-level politicians, judges, and senior police commanders… Dutroux… was closely tied to a senior Portuguese diplomat, Jorge Ritto who was later implicated and jailed as a major figure in Portugal’s Casa Pia pedophilia scandal.

Another leading figure dredged up in the widening circle of the Dutroux pedophilia operation, Jean Michel Nihoul, managed the group’s finances out of posh offices on the Avenue de Louise in the heart of the Brussels business district. He managed a string of Dutroux’s properties which functioned as pedophilia clubs in various countries, including a sumptuous and secluded villa in the Caribbean at which leading U.S. political figures, governors and members of Congress could satisfy their pedophile perversions safe from media sleuths. Nihoul had been in and out of jail since the 1970’s, on a wide range of money-laundering, drug-trafficking, and prostitution charges. He was also… a close friend of U.S. General John Singlaub and Rev. Moon.

“The Dutroux-Nihoul case also sparked a revival of interest in a parallel case unearthed in the United States, as part of the late 1980s Congressional and special prosecutors probes of the Contra Supply operations. The American case involved CIA- Col. Oliver North initiated drugs-for money-for weapons operation, and also the Franklin Credit Bank of Omaha, Nebraska, run by Larry King, a powerful African-American Republican Party operator, whose savings and loan institution was used to launder funds for Oliver North’s Contras.

When former Nebraska state senator John De Camp undertook a probe of King’s activities , he uncovered a nationwide pedophile ring, servicing some of the wealthiest and most powerful figures in the Omaha business and political elites in the Republican Party circles of George Herbert Walker Bush (see ‘The Franklin Cover-Up, Child Abuse, Satanism and Murder in Nebraska,’ by John W. De Camp, {Lincoln Nebraska: AWT, Inc., 1992}).

On October 14, 1996, the Supreme Court of Belgium removed Judge Connerrote from the Dutroux case… Newspaper, LE SOIR, opined in an editorial that Judge Connerrote had to be removed ‘because he was unwilling to refrain from subpoenaing major U.S. diplomats and high government officials, as well as key figures in the Dutch and Portuguese pedophilia cases.’
