Wat ik gelezen heb is het volgende over VDB: toen in 1981 de affaire van de drugstrafiek in bevroren vlees in de pers kwam, kwam de naam van VDB steeds meer naar voren in illegale drugstrafieken. Adjudant Goffinon verzond in 1981 zelfs een brief naar de procureur generaal om VDB wegens betrokkenheid in drugshandel te laten arresteren. Op dit verzoek kwam nooit een officiële reactie. Ook majoor Vernaillen stelde in november 1981 onderzoeksrechter Bellemans en generaal Bernaert persoonlijk op de hoogte van de betrokkenheid van VDB in drugstrafiek in bevroren vlees. Nooit werd hier gevolg aan gegeven.

In een fiscaal onderzoek naar Boucheries Ghysels en een reeks aanverwante bedrijven bevindt zich een opmerkelijk proces verbaal. Daarin beschuldigt Joseph Ghysels VDB ervan de opdrachtgever te zijn van een huurmoord. Buitenlandse "hit men" zouden iemand hebben geëxecuteerd van wie het lijk in de koffer van zijn eigen wagen werd teruggevonden. De vraag is of Ghysels de waarheid spreekt of niet!

Maar deze moord doet wel terugdenken aan iets wat met de Bende van Nijvel te maken heeft: de moord op de taxichauffeur Angelou. Via het ballistisch onderzoek kwam men ook terecht bij een andere aanslag van de Bende, die op José vanden Eynde in Beersel.

Ook de aanslag Vernaillen zou wel eens te maken kunnen hebben met VDB. Wou VDB via zijn connecties in het milieu afrekenen met Vernaillen? Nog iets, Luc Vanden Daele, een rijkswachter, had zich in de zaak van de diepvriessmokkel vastgebeten. Tegen de orders van zijn oversten. En het was zijn taak niet om speurwerk te verrichten. Op 31 maart 1981 werd Luc Vanden Daele dood aangetroffen met een kogel in de borst. De belangrijke dossiers die hij bezat werden nooit teruggevonden. Vanden Daele zijn bureau was opengebroken en al zijn dossier die met de drugszaak te maken hadden waren gestolen. Niemand die er ooit een vraag over stelde.

Graag wil ik me allereerst voorstellen. Mijn (nick) naam is Iceman, ben woonachtig in Nederland net over de grens. Al een aantal jaren volg ik deze website en sinds kort ben ik ook gebruiker. Ben geïnteresseerd in en gefascineerd door het dossier Bende van Nijvel. En vooral vanwege het feit dat het nog altijd niet is opgelost. Graag wil ik mijn bijdrage leveren aan dit forum en heb misschien iets interessants voor de liefhebber.

In Nederland staat het complete archief van kranten uit Zeeland online. Wie hier gaat zoeken op "Bende van Nijvel" komt een groot aantal artikelen tegen die zijn opgetekend in de tijd dat het allemaal speelde. Ook feiten die we vaak al weer bijna vergeten waren.

Zo was er ten tijde van de ontvoering van VDB plots een deel van zijn dossier 'kwijt'. Precies dat deel waarin zijn banden met Bouhouche en Beijer aan de kaak werden gesteld. Ook zou dit tweetal VDB hebben aangeboden de BIC dossiers, over zijn vermeende belastingfraude, te verduisteren. In ruil voor veel geld. VDB zou dit geweigerd hebben en heeft het bovendien gemeld bij justitie. Je kunt dit terug vinden in een artikel van 23 januari 1989.

Op de Franstalige site is heel wat te lezen over VDB. Ik noteer alvast een mogelijke band met de wapenhandelaar Dirk Ykelenstam.

Born in Belgium in 1919. Roman Catholic. Studied at Saint-Michel, a Jesuit college, in the 1930s. Became at some point a member of Opus Dei, just as his (later) good friend Baron Benoit de Bonvoisin. Worked in the business of his father. Already in his early days, VdB was strongly anti-communist and was a big supporter of Rex, a fascist movement that collaborated with the nazis during WWII. Flirted with other Nazi and fascist movements, which brought him in conflict with his father.

Joined the PSC in 1948-1949. Founded the Comite for the Revival of the PSC in 1949. Member of Parliament for the Parti Social Chrétien (PSC) 1949-1979. Member of the Commission of Economic Affairs and Middle-class of Parliament since 1949. Member of the Commission of Finance of Parliament since 1950. Had begun a Red-scare campaign in the late 1940s and early 1950s, mirroring the one of Senator Joseph McCarthy in the US. In 1950, during the debates whether or not King Leopold III should remain King of Belgium, Vanden Boeynants made it clear he was a staunch monarchist and supporter of Leopold III.

However, Leopold III abdicated in favor of his son Baudouin in 1951 over the controversy that he remained in his country during WWII and visited Hitler in Germany. His second wife was Liliane de Rethy, who has been mentioned by X2 and possible others as being involved in child abuse and murders. During the inauguration of King Baudouin in 1951, someone screamed "Vive la République," which is usually attributed to communist party chairman Julien Lahaut (might have been someone sitting next to him), a long time and very popular politician. VdB went berserk and had to be stopped from physically attacking the communist party at the gathering.

A week later, Lahaut was shot in front of his home by two unknown persons. Later on it became known that one of the assassins, "Adolphe", was part of the Belgian Stay-Behind network. Vanden Boeynants became a big supporter of NATO and European integration. Founded Mouvement des Independants et des Cadres (MIC) in 1955, which was meant to neutralize the labor union wing of the PSC. Minister of the Middle-Classes 1958-1961. Gave his good friend Aldo Vastapane a monopoly on tobacco-free stores at the new airport of Zaventem during this time. Asked Baron Benoit de Bonvoisin to realign the PSC during this time. X3 has claimed that Vanden Boeynants was already involved in hideous child sacrifice during this time, together with members of the royal family and Charly De Pauw.

Vanden Boeynants once said: "The worst moment during my career was the period of the strikes '60-'61. Then I thought we had come to the end of normal political history and that we had entered back into adventure." These strikes were not supported by the labor unions. Chairman of the PSC 1961-1966. Belgian Prime Minister 1966-1968. Appointed the honorary title of Minister of State in 1969. One of the most prominent members of the World Trade Center Club of Belgium in Brussels, and handed the contract to build this business complex mainly to Charly De Pauw and Ado Blaton.

One of the primary founders of the aristocratic and fascist Cercle des Nations in 1969, together with Baron de Bonvoisin and Paul Vankerkhoven (close associate of Otto von Habsburg; CEPIC; founded the Belgian branch of the WACL). Jean Violet (connected to the Synarchist Movement of Empire through the fascist CSAR; Opus Dei; French intelligence; close associate of Otto von Habsburg; founder of the international private intelligence group Le Cercle, which was visited by CIA directors and other virulent anti-communist US covert warfare experts) became one of the few French members of Cercle des Nations. Involved with the fascist Nouvel Europe Magazine (NEM), which was founded in 1971 and funded by Baron de Bonvoisin.

Around this magazine a bunch of fascist NEM-Clubs were set up, starting in 1972, which began preparing a coup. Together with Baron de Bonvoisin, Vanden Boeynants was a key founder of CEPIC in 1972, which was a continuation of Mouvement des Independants et des Cadres (MIC), founded in 1955 by Vanden Boeynants. It had the same purpose of neutralizing the PSC's pro-labour aspects and was highly fascist. Belgian Minister of Defense 1972-1978. With Baron de Bonvoisin involved in the aborted 1973 coup. In 1979, VdB's name was linked to Fortunato Israel, the mistress of Roger Boas who headed a European-wide prostitution network. May 16, 1997, Tony Van Parys, head of the Gang Commission, to De Standaard about the connections of Fortunato Israel and her follow-up Lydia Montaricourt: "Among their contacts were very highly placed persons: the commandant of the gendarmerie lieutenant-general Fernand Beaurir, arms dealer Roger Boas, and through the latter Paul Vanden Boeynants."

Vanden Boeynants and General Leon Fernand 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; always present at the border when a new large shipment of marijuana and cocaine of VdB's company was smuggled into Belgium; member Group G, Belgium's fascist fifth column) largely created the National Bureau for Drugs (NBD) of the Gendarmerie in the 1972-1975 period. The CIA provided training for the NBD and delivered many, often questionable, informants. In return General Francois would give the CIA chief in Belgium intelligence about leftists and other dissident groups.

General Fernand Beaurir, accused of pedophilia by different sources, became head of the NBD in 1978. In 1979, a BOB officer began reporting on corruption in the NBD and how top level officers were involved in the drug trade themselves. General Francois, for example, was always present at the border when a new large shipment of marijuana and cocaine of Vanden Boeynants' company Boucheries Ghysels was smuggled into Belgium. That these drug transports were going on was already known for three years, but they were never intercepted. General Francois was arrested in January 1980 and a large public investigation into the NBD began. While interrogating Francois and his NBD associates, two chief investigators, Major Herman Vernaillen and BOB adjutant Guy Goffinon, were told how they couldn't touch their suspects because they were protected by prime minister Paul Vanden Boeynants and Baron Benoit de Bonvoisin, both members of the fascist CEPIC and Cercle des Nations organizations.

On top of that, General Beaurir, a Nazi-sympathizing buddy of Vanden Boeynants, and other senior Gendarme officers began sabotaging the investigation. The investigators did not back down, and Goffinon even advised that Vanden Boeynants be arrested on charges of drug trade. On October 12, 1981 there was a failed assassination attempt on Goffinon, followed on October 26 by a failed attempt on Vernaillen (he and his wife were badly shot up. His wife ended up being 40% paralyzed). It soon turned out that pilot and DEA agent Jean-Francois Buslik, a long time friend of Madani Bouhouche and also a friend of DEA narcotics specialist Frank Eaton (both top players in Belgium's NATO-sponsored fascist fifth column), had manufactured the timing mechanism of the explosive. Bombs with similar unusual timing mechanisms were later found in a storage space located in the same street where Paul Latinus and Martial Leukeu lived (other top players in Belgium's NATO-sponsored fascist fifth column, financed by CEPIC).

Vanden Boeynants, Buslik and Bouhouche were (also) tied to the assassination attempt on Vernaillen. Founded the Public Information Office (PIO) in 1974, a fascist "personal" Military Intelligence group that spied on journalists that had a negative attitude towards the Vanden Boeynants gang. It also infiltrated many right-wing organizations and local templar orders to push for pro-military-industrial complex policies. De Bonvoisin and Vanden Boeynants made sure that major Jean Bougerol (SDRA Military Intelligence officer; crucial figure in the aborted 1973 coup; became head of PIO in 1974 with the blessing of Paul Vanden Boeynants and Baron de Bonvoisin; gave orders to Francis Dossogne, head of Front de la Jeunesse and Group G, and an employee of de Bonvoisin; traveled with CEPIC director Bernard Mercier in 1975 to Spain to attend the funeral of Franco; editor in chief of INFOREP 1976-1978, an anti-communist propaganda magazine aimed at party leaders; spoke at NEM-Clubs; member of the Confrerie des Hospitaliers de Notre-Dame d'Aulne, together with co-PIO agent Commandant Claude Dery) became head of PIO, and both men cold regularly be found at PIO headquarters.

Lieutenant-general Roman, chief of staff of the Belgian Army, was Bougerol's superior and another political ally of de Bonvoisin and Vanden Boeynants. Bougerol gave orders to Francis Dossogne (paid "advisor" to Baron de Bonvoisin; took his orders from Army Intelligence major Jean Bougerol, head of PIO and personally picked by Vanden Boeynants and Baron de Bonvoisin; another "private detective"; director of CIDEP, publisher of the fascist NEM magazine; good friend Jean Bultot, who is closely tied to the Gang of Nijvel; gave permission to Paul Latinus in '78-'79 to reorganize the Brussels department of Front de la Jeunesse; according to Martial Lekeu, Dossogne, Latinus and DEA agent Frank Eaton were leaders of Group G, a Nazi-inspired NATO-sanctioned parallel organization within the Gendarmerie), an employee of de Bonvoisin's PDG and leader of the fascist Front de la Jeunesse and Group G.

After the death of CEPIC in 1981, PIO was reorganized into the possibly even more influential European Institute of Management (EIM). Col. Rene Mayerus, a good friend of Major Jean Bougerol (the protege of de Bonvoisin and Vanden Boeynants and accused by X1 of being involved in the child abuse network) became administrative-director of EIM. Within 6 months of its founding, the new head of EIM became Douglas MacArthur II (born in 1909; Episcopalian; nephew of the famous general; member Yale Wolf's head society; ambassador to Paris 1938-1940; ambassador to the Fascist Vichy government 1940-1942; held in Nazi internment for 16 months after Petain broke off relations with the US in 1942; member General Eisenhower's SHAEF staff in 1944; ambassador to Italy 1944-1948; became chief of the State Department's Division of European Affairs in 1949; political advisor to SHAPE headquarters in France 1951-1952; counselor US Department State in Washington 1953-1957; member CFR from the 1950s to the late 1980s; ambassador to Japan in Tokyo 1957-1961; ambassador to Brussels 1961-1965; assistant secretary of state and head of the State Department's Bureau of Congressional Relations 1965-1967; ambassador to Austria 1967-1969; ambassador to Iran during the Shah's reign 1969-1972 (retired after evading a kidnapping attempt); independent international affairs consultant in Washington 1972-1997; director Banque Bruxelles Lambert; since 1981, chair of the European Institute of Management (EIM), a privatized fascist army intelligence group which tried to undermine the Belgian democratic process and appears to have been at the center of a child abuse, torture and murder ring; member of the editorial advisory board of The Washington Times since Sun Myung Moon founded it in 1982; chaired Moon's World Media Conference in Tokyo in the mid-1980s; openly supported the Women's Federation for World Peace when Moon founded it in 1987; founding chair of Sun Myung Moon-funded Panda Motor Corp in China since 1988, a company that went bankrupt within a few years (October 16, 1989, Daily Herald, 'Moon-backed Panda car drives into skepticism of auto industry'); his uncle Douglas MacArthur saved Moon during the invasion of Korea; big supporter of the UN's Temple of Understanding; died in 1997). Minister of Brussels Affairs 1974-1978.

A 1976 report from BOB officer Roger Tratsaert stated that there was a silent right wing coup in preparation in Belgium, which was centered on Nouvelle Europe Magazine and (ex-) officers from the military. Jean Bougerol, sponsored by lieutenant-general Roman, was a coordinating figure in this plot (including the aborted 1973 coup), just as Count Arnould de Briey, a public official who was married to co-Bilderberg founder Paul van Zeeland's daughter. Chairman of CEPIC 1977-1979 with de Bonvoisin being treasurer. In May 1989, Lt.-Col. Herman Vernaillen of the Gendarmerie supplied Andre Bourgeois, head of an investigating committee, with names of people who back in 1980 were trying to destabilize the Belgium state.

This was done in order to bring in a more hard-right government. The names given by Vernaillen included Paul Vanden Boeynants, Jose Desmarets (former PSC vice premier) Jean Militis (special forces Col.; CEPIC; PRL member of parliament), Lt.-Gen. Vivario (Army chief of staff) prosecutor Raymond Charles and General Beaurir. Vernaillen had been given these names in 1980 by Leon Finne, a former CEPIC member and banker who used to be involved in illegal arms sales. Coincidentally, Finne was assassinated by the Gang of Nijvel on September 27, 1985.

On November 29, 1989, adjutant Guy Dussart of the BOB in Waverse testified in a closed session of the parliamentary investigating committee that he was approached in December 1985 - March 1986 by two senior high nobility figures who belonged to Opus Dei. They explained to him that at least 9 important members of Opus Dei in addition to several officers and generals of the Gendarmerie and the army were working to destabilize the country and as a result transfer all power to the king. Dussart mentioned the same names as Lieutenant-Colonel Vernaillen, including General Beaurir and Paul Vanden Boeynants (both belonged to Opus Dei).

Dussart also said that the aborted 1973 coup, named "l'Ordre Blue", involved some of the same players as the coup prepared in the 1980s. There also was a report that the conspirators had organized several meetings at Castle Dongelberg, owned by Opus Dei. X2 later claimed that children had been abused at Dongelberg, while Nathalie W. also mentioned the castle in her testimony. Vanden Boeynants was again Belgian Prime Minister 1978-1979. Chairman of the PSC 1979-1981. In 1979, in the Pinon Affair which never became an affair, Vanden Boeynants was named as a person who attended parties at which underaged girls were abused. Others named were General Beaurir, Guy Mathot, Ado Blaton and Prince Albert (later King Albert II).

Jacques Jonet, a fascist lawyer who used to be a political secretary to Otto von Habsburg and reportedly was close to Vanden Boeynants, was later accused of having warned an editor of Pour (Magazine) not to publish details about the affair. A week later members of Front de la Jeunesse burnt down the headquarters of Pour. Through prominent CEPIC member and Annie Bouty law partner Philippe Deleuze, Nihoul first met Vanden Boeynants in November 1981 at PSC headquarters in Brussels. He discussed with Vanden Boeynants an aspect of the Centre Medical de l'Est (CME) affair.

PV 42.665, October 14, 1996 (testimony of Guy Einsweiller or Eschweiler): "Remembers Nihoul (fish trade near the PAVAN transport enterprise where he works. 108/11O Avenue du Port 1000, Brussels). During a deal, he saw Dumont drinking a glass with Nihoul. Sometimes saw Nihoul at the restaurant Mayflower in Koekelberg... declared to have regularly seen Dumont and Vanden Boeynants in the private area of the fish and crustacean enterprise that he exploited. [early 1990s]" According to Jozef De Poorter, head of construction firm VDK, which he took over from Arthur Vande Kerkhove after this person died, Vande Kerkhove was a great fan of orgies, which he attended with Paul Vanden Boeynants and Nihoul (T.3518/96, February 3, 2000).

1999, Marie-Jeanne Van Heeswyck, Annemie Bulte and Douglas De Coninck, 'De X-dossiers' p. 116-118: "Edouard Nihoul, the Brussels PRL-politician and royal court supplier of cake and pastry, has similar experiences. The confectioner shouts from the rooftops in late 1996 that he is not family, but the by Michel Nihoul himself spread rumor seems inextinguishable... Edouard Nihoul, the unfortunate confectioner, at the time was chairman of the CEPIC in Brussels. 'Michel Nihoul helped during election campaigns. At a certain moment, Vanden Boeynants couldn't stand him anymore. I've read that he now denies to ever have had something to do with Vanden Boeynants. I have to laugh about that.'"

Together with other directors of CEPIC, VdB wrote letters of recommendation for 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). Founded the Mediterranean Meat Company around 1981, located in Malta on an abandoned British military airport. It shared offices and accountants with ASCO-Malta, the aerospace/arms company of his friend Roger Boas.

X1 claimed she had regularly been taken to a snuff studio located in the factory of ASCO-Belgium. Vanden Boeynants was among those she had seen there. Boas had access to an international network of prostitutes through Fortunato Israel, his mistress and employee. He used this network to tempt and reward customers and intermediaries with, among them Vanden Boeynants. Back in the days when Vanden Boeynants was prime- and defense minister, foreign arms corporations knew they had to include ASCO in every single contract if they wanted to work with the Belgians. Adnan Khashoggi, who had an office in Brussels for his firm Triad, was a close associate of Vanden Boeynants. CEPIC disbanded in 1981, soon after their connections to the NEM-clubs and Front de la Jeunesse were found out about.

Excerpts of the 1981 confidential State Security memo (translated from Dutch): "It was determined that certain members of the board of the CEPIC (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 CEPIC, Benoit de Bonvoisin, treasurer of the CEPIC, Joseph (Jo) Gerard, Paul Van Kerkhoven, Joseph Franz and Bernard Mercier. 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" (CIDEP), 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 CEPIC 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" (PDG), 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 PDG, 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. 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 CEPIC, was mentioned as one of the organizers of the transport from Antwerp to the seat of the CEPIC 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." In the mid-1980s, former BOB officers Madani Bouhouche and Robert "Bob" Beijer were in the possession of a whole database of sensitive info on prominent politicians. They had stolen this before leaving the BOB in 1983 and tried to sell the information to two prominent politicians: Paul Vanden Boeynants (couldn't remember this fact. Only remembered he had declined an offer of Bouhouche to steal incriminating files against his person) and Minister of Justice Philippe Moureaux (accused by The Sprout of having been present at the murder of Julie and Melissa, together with Cardinal Danneels) (confirmed it had been offered to him and that he declined the offer). February 27, 1988, De Morgen, Francois Raes (BOB officer and whistleblower who exposed NBD highest level drug dealing) commentary: "Isn't that story of these two ministers strange? They are contacted to buy secret information and they don't inform a single police service. At the very least that's a lack of civil goodwill."

In 1986, Vanden Boeynants was convicted for more than 100 counts of tax evasion and forgery of documents from 1967 to 1982 in which he personally made $4.4 million. He was sentenced to a suspended three-year jail term and a fine of $13,600. Kidnapped by the "Socialist Revolutionary Brigade" from mid-January to mid-February 1989, and released after paying a ransom. It later turned out that the gang of Patrick Haemers was behind the kidnapping. February 12, 1989, Houston Chronicle, 'Mystery surrounds Belgium abduction': "One of Belgium's most popular politicians, two-time Prime Minister Paul Vanden Boeynants, was kidnapped Jan. 14 from his apartment building by a group calling itself the Socialist Revolutionary Brigade. Or maybe not.

"Let's put it this way," said a non-European diplomat based here, "We have strong doubts that things happened the way they said." One reason for the skepticism is that Vanden Boeynants, 69, was convicted of tax evasion two years ago by a judge who called him an "inveterate cheat.'' He was being investigated once again, this time for receiving kickbacks between 1972-79 while he was Belgium's defense minister... Even after his conviction, Van Boeynants received more votes than anyone else in recent city elections and was in line to become mayor of Brussels. He reluctantly turned the job down under pressure from Prime Minister Wilfried Martens, who is said to have balked at the idea of a convicted man - he received a three-year suspended sentence - being chief executive of the city."...

Vanden Boeynants is an honest man, said his former aide in the ministry of defense, retired Gen. Jules Everaert." Everaert (chairman of Pro Belgica 1989-1993; one of his two predecessors here was Prince Francois de Merode, from 1975-1983) was a close friend and tennis partner of Vanden Boeynants. March 25, 1989, Washington Post, 'Belgians arrest kidnapping suspect': "The lawyer of an alleged gang leader being hunted for the kidnapping of a former Belgian prime minister has been arrested on suspicion of masterminding the abduction, the prosecutor's office said today Michel Vander Elst, 41, was placed under arrest after nine hours of questioning on suspicion of being "the author, coauthor or an accomplice in the kidnap" of Paul Vanden Boeynants, a spokesman said. Other accusations included extortion and forgery...

Vander Elst represents Patrick Haemers, 36, the alleged leader of a gang being sought by police for a string of unsolved violent crimes. Vanden Boeynants was snatched in the garage of his Brussels home Jan. 14 and released a month later after a ransom payment of up to $2.5 million. The spokesman charged that Vander Elst had seen some of the suspected kidnapers after they had rented a villa in the northern French resort of Le Touquet, where Vanden Boeynants was held for a month. He said the lawyer also had received calls from public booths in Le Touquet." Vander Elst has been named by X1 as one of her abusers and torturers, alongside Michel Nihoul and Paul Vanden Boeynants. In 1996, Vander Elst provided a (false) alibi for Nihoul while this person was investigated for having been seen at the location where Laetitia was kidnapped by Dutroux.

Patrick Haemers and his father were involved with people like Nihoul and members of the fascist underground. Haemers committed suicide in jail in May 1993, several days after his sidekicks in the Vanden Boeynants kidnapping escaped from jail (and were caught again). Vanden Boeynants did a lot of his shady business transactions through Caisse Privee Banque of the very noble d'Ursel family (intermarried with de Bonvoisin and accused by X1 of serious child abuse). The Haemers gang was also involved with this bank through one of the bank's directors, Jean Cruysmans, who regularly visited CEPIC.

Vanden Boeynants burnt his private archives in 1995. Honored by the Order of Leopold II, the Order of St. Michael and St. George, the Order of Orange Nassau, the Vatican's Order of St. Sylvester, and many others. On August 20, 1997, Commandant Duterme of the BOB internally decided to sack De Baets and his team, who had been working with X1, one of the witnesses that accused Vanden Boeynants of having raped and tortured her. The weekly magazine Pan, headed by Paul Vanden Boeynants, joyously reported on August 21 that De Baets and his team had been removed from Neufchateau.

Interestingly, the investigators themselves were only told about their removal on August 25, by Col. Brabant, who had recently sanctioned a media campaign against Nathalie W. by the same re-readers. Nathalie W. claimed to have seen Vanden Boeynants at the Dolo, tying him to Nihoul's favorite club. Other research turned up that Nihoul first met Vanden Boeynants in November 1981 at PSC headquarters in Brussels. He discussed with Vanden Boeynants an aspect of the Centre Medical de l'Est (CME) affair. They kept in touch over the years.

1999, Marie-Jeanne Van Heeswyck, Annemie Bulte and Douglas De Coninck, 'De X-dossiers' p. 116-118: "Edouard Nihoul, the Brussels PRL-politician and royal court supplier of cake and pastry, has similar experiences. The confectioner shouts from the rooftops in late 1996 that he is not family, but the by Michel Nihoul himself spread rumor seems inextinguishable...

Vanden Boeynants' old CEPIC friend Baron de Bonvoisin (also accused of child abuse) began a slander campaign against De Baets around the time that his team was removed from Neufchateau.

Oeps! Sorry voor de lengte, 't is meer dan ik dacht. wink Maar ik vind het zeer interessante informatie samengebracht en ik hoop dat jullie er iets aan hebben.

Is het misschien mogelijk dat u een korte samenvatting geeft?

Mijn bijdrage is korter en geeft een goed idee van de orde van grootte van het gesjoemel van VDB. Een ontslagen kaderlid van ASCO, de heer Louis Sik, verklaarde voor de rechtbank dat Vanden Boeynants voor 700 miljoen commissiegelden ontving voor de contracten met ASCO.

VDB is sinds expo 1958 een politiek fenomeen geworden. Hij fungeerde bijna als een magneet en op politiek (PSC) en zakelijk niveau werden er banden gesmeed die hem allerlei voordelen opleverde. Zaken doen betekent dan ook dat er diverse geldstromen ontstaan die boekhoudkundig moeten overeenstemmen met de gevoerde boekhouding(en). Einde jaren 70 bleek het imperium van VDB barsten te vertonen.

De fraude-aanklachten bleken ook zijn politieke carrière geschaad en bovendien was er zich op politiek vlak een tegenpool (PRL) aan het ontwikkelen (ministerie van Justitie J. Gol). En Smets was in mijn ogen net een Gol-vertrouweling. De moorden op Angelou, Van den Eynde, Finné en Van Camp, die VDB-gezinden waren, zijn waarschijnlijk uit de weg geruimd omdat ze waarschijnlijk aan en via Smets belangrijke info hebben uitgewisseld (in ruil voor?).
