In 1990, two part-time members of staff at the Blanche Pierre care home on Jersey alerted the authorities about child abuse.

In 1999, a confidential report detailed "gross acts of physical and psychological abuse" at the Blanche Pierre care home.

In 2000, alleged victims complained to the police.

Marc Dutroux's lawyer, Xavier Magnee, said 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.

Magnee 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.

Magnee 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.

M. 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 - Europe, News ...

Roger Holland, from Jersey, was a convicted paedophile.

In 1992 Holland became a part-time policeman on Jersey.

Six years earlier, he had indecently assaulted a mentally backward 14-year-old girl.

He had admitted molesting a second child.

In 1995, he was promoted to the rank of vingtenier, the second most senior in the island's volunteer police force, which supplements the work of the full-time police. - Secrets and terror of Jersey care home

Marc Dutroux insisted that he was not a "lone predator" but part of a wider paedophile ring.

Dutroux 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. - Dutroux insists he was part of paedophile ring World news The ...

Jersey's top people:

"It is this allegation of an establishment cover-up, with its echoes of Belgium's notorious Marc Dutroux case, which is likely to leave the most indelible stain on Jersey's cherished reputation.
When Dutroux was convicted in 2004 of raping and murdering a string of young girls - two of whom had starved to death in his cellar - he said he was part of a widespread paedophile ring that included policemen and elite members of Belgian society." - Secrets and terror of Jersey care home - Telegraph


Bridget O'Donnell and her partner Jeremy Wilkins befriended Kate and Gerry McCann during their week-long holiday in Portugal

"Bridget O'Donnell ... criticised Portuguese detectives for failing to take a statement from her and her partner, and said police officers did not even recognise a photograph of Madeleine the day after the incident." - Madeleine witness describes abduction night

"A uniformed Portuguese policeman and a translator (Robert Murat)... later questioned Miss O'Donnell and her partner in their apartment.

"'The translator... sweated slightly... He was breathless...'

"They answered a few questions and gave their details, which the policeman took down on 'the back of a bit of paper', Miss McDonnell wrote. 'No notebook.'

"'Then he pointed to the photocopied picture of Madeleine on the table. Is this your daughter? he asked. Er, no, we said. That's the girl you are meant to be searching for." - Madeleine McCann witness breaks her silence

"Belgian police were told of the whereabouts of one of the victims of alleged child murderer and pedophile Marc Dutroux one year before she was found dead, a court in Belgium heard.
Throughout the Dutroux investigation and trial there have been allegations and rumours of police incompetence at best, collusion at worst..." - Police told where Dutroux victim was long before she was found dead: witness

"Marc Dutroux, the Belgian paedophile, claimed today that police officers helped him to abduct two young women whose bodies were later discovered buried in his garden. Testifying for the first time at his trial, Dutroux said that he abducted An Marchal, 17, and Eefje Lambrecks, 19, with the help of a heroin-addicted friend, who is also on trial, and two other men. 'I later found out they were members of the police force,' he told the court, without identifying them." - Dutroux claims police helped in teens' kidnap - Times Online
