BELGIUM - DUTROUX - Was Dutroux working for the security services?

PART ONE - DURBUY IN THE ARDENNES

This is the Southern, French speaking, Roman Catholic part of Belgium. What they call Wallonia. For the tourist, the attractions are many: The rounded hills of the Ardennes, forests, rivers, art, carnivals, and fine food.

"Here we are getting a bad name in Belgium," says Didier, the middle-aged, balding barman at our hotel.

"Marc Dutroux?" says Myrianne.

"Many people felt the truth did not come out at his trial," says Didier. "He knows too much about the top people."

"There's always rumours," I say.

"I'll tell you," says Didier, fingering the crucifix suspended from his neck, "there are girls coming in here from Africa. To brothels in a city near here. Very young girls. Probably with AIDS."

"The world's a wicked place, " I comment.

"No, wait," says Myrianne, "the International Organisation for Migration has said Belgium is the top place for sex slavery. Young girls from Rwanda, the Congo, and so on."

"Not for tourists like you," says Didier.

"Thank you," I say. "No, these brothels are very expensive and very exclusive. Only for very top people who will keep quiet."

"It's true," says Myrianne. "Look the Observer said the same thing. It talked about 'the squalid road that leads to Belgium'."

PART TWO - LIEGE.

We reach Liege by train. Liege, in Wallonia, is a city associated with a river, industry, churches and ....MAIGRET's author Georges Simenon. Simenon! What a man. An expert on the seedy side of life. Did he really have sex with 20,000 women? Was he really homosexual?

Liege is a place to wander, along the river, through the Aquarium at Quai Van Beneden, into museums and churches, and along the lively streets of the working class area called Outremeuse. The market , La BATTE market, at Quai de la Batte, on Sundays, stretches alongside the river and attracts thousands of people. Worth a visit. Liege has wonderful food. For example- salade liegeoise which is potatoes, smoked bacon, onions, French beans, and parsley. Yummy.

"OK," says Myrianne, in the cafe called Vaudree II, "A quiz about famous Belgians."

"Tintin," I say, putting down my beer glass. "He was Belgian. Ask me about Tintin."

"No, Michel Nihoul."

"He plays for Anderlecht?"

"No. He was the guy who allegedly organised orgies in a Belgian chateau. Orgies allegedly attended by a former European commissioner, judges, senior politicians, lawyers and policemen."

"And?"

"He was one of the accomplices of you-know-who."

"Marc Dutroux."

"The subject of the book called 'The X-files: What Belgium Was Not Supposed to Know About the Dutroux Affair.' Now, next question. Who is Regina Louf?"

"Famous cyclist."

"No. Regina Louf testified to the authorities about orgies at which she allegedly saw children tortured and murdered. The allegation in the X-files is that, at Black masses, attended by members of Belgium's elite, children were sacrificed."

"Is she taken seriously?"

"Not apparently by certain top people. But, quite recently, at the village of Forchies-la-Marche, the police investigated an institute of Black Magic. They dug up human skulls. And the International Herald Tribune did a famous piece about all this. They quoted Guy Poncelet as saying the X-files book was convincing."

"So, the next question is : who is Guy Poncelet?

"Answer: I don't know."

"He's a judge. His son, a police officer, was mysteriously shot dead. This son had been investigating a case involving Dutroux. And the next question: who is Judge Connerotte?"

"I need another beer. You know they have about one thousand different beers in this cafe!"

"Judge Connerotte was the judge who caught Dutroux."

"The authorities must have been pleased."

"The authorities removed Connerotte from the case. Now, another question: who is Mr De Baets?"

"This is a case for Maigret."

"De Baets was the official in charge of investigating the X-files. The authorities removed him from the case."

"What's all this got to do with Liege?"

"Who is Andre Cools?"

"Belgian rock singer?"

"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."

"SO?"

"Cools was shot dead. Before he could speak out."

"How's your beer?"

"Fine. Who is Alain Van der Biest?"

"Belgian artist?"

"After Dutroux's arrest in 1996, arrests were made in the Cool's case."

"So, who got arrested?"

"One of those arrested was Alain Van der Biest, a Socialist Minister, alleged to have close links with the mafia gangs of Liege."

"How's your beer?"

"Who is Guy Mathot?"

"That's a difficult one."

"Belgian TV came up with an anonymous witness who claimed that leading Socialist politician, Guy Mathot, had ordered Cools to be killed."

"What sort of guy is Mathot?"

"In 1994 Mathot was charged with corruption over kickbacks paid to Belgium's Socialist parties. Now, here's a famous Belgian you will have heard of. Who is Willy Claes?"

"Famous Belgian chef?"

"Claes was NATO Secretary General and a Belgian. He was caught up in the Mathot kickbacks thing and was forced to resign. Who is Melchior Wathelet?"

"Tell me."

"It was top judge Wathelet who released Dutroux from prison in 1991. Wathelet was Belgium's judge at the European Court of Justice. Wathelet 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."

PART THREE

1,300 children disappeared in the Brussels region between 1991 and 1996. According to government official Mr De Baets, what happened after several of these disappearances was that Marc Dutroux paid large sums of money into various bank accounts.

V. amusing. I'm kind of confused because I know of two Belgians who both are fictional, and I never pay attention when we go over anything interesting in History class. No wait... we never do go over anything interesting in History... just the Roman republic every day for the past several months...

A nice review of the many unfinshed and tangled leads in the Dutroux case.

Marc Dutroux would kidnap and train children. But Jean Michel Nihoul, released in 2007, was the contact man between the costumers and the goods. Dutroux was working for Nihoul.

For as far as secret service is concerned, the revelations of Regina Louf, Witness X1, very clearly show that the whole pedophile network in Belgium is serving a secret service. The purpose was, or is, to blackmail politicians and others in powerful places in the Belgian Government. But I don't know of any English translation or transcript. Her witnesses in Dutch reveal this, although she does not put it in the way I put it here.

I'll quote from here testimonies:
All child abuse was filmed and taken pictures from.
And this was not in order to make movies or porn magazines. Another quote:
Politicians where fed drunk at a party, than brought to a brothel having 18 years old girls. Then them was said: "Upstairs is a surprise for you". The politicians would than go upstairs, and find an underage girl naked on a bed.

She also described how politicians that where not pedophiles, would get seduced, starting with girls from 18, than 17, than 16, and so forth, younger and younger. Photo's where made when they would do their thing with 11 year old girls.

To me this sounds as a foreign secret service, taking over a government from within. These testimonies I only know from Dutch and French language movies, while an English interview I would watch online by the BBC reveals nothing. But many volunteers are translating this stuff, if you find an English translation of her testimonies in English, Regina Louf productions tell a lot more on the Dutroux clientèle, than any source I know. She really is the best source.
