Er is geen houden meer aan: het corrupte, criminele en pedofiele justitie-netwerk onder leiding van Joris Demmink en De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek (Harro Knijff) stort met bulderend geraas in elkaar. De rechterlijke macht heeft geen enkele geloofwaardigheid meer nu uw webmaster aanhoudend wordt geterroriseerd door corrupte rechters die maar een doel hebben: het beschermen van kinderverkrachters zoals Demmink, Wabeke, Tonino, Fernhout, Holthuis, Salomonson, Spong, Van Straelen, Schimmelpenninck en wie weet hoeveel meer beffen en toga’s. Hieronder volgt een artikel uit The Bangkok Post van zondag 5 september over het oprollen van een prominenten-pedofielennetwerk in Portugal. In Nederland hebben de MSM hier nauwelijks aandacht aan besteed
en die spaarzame stukken die over deze zaak verschenen (natuurlijk niet in Elsevier) zijn gesloten voor reacties (m.u.v. Spits waar de reacties waarschijnlijk worden gecensureerd), opnieuw om de criminele pedofiel Demmink en zijn trawanten te beschermen. Passages die 1:1 van toepassing zijn op Nederland zijn vet gemaakt.
GUILTY AFTER A SIX-YEAR TRIAL, PORTUGAL’S HI-SO PAEDOPHILE RING
Politicians among the abusers who preyed on state-run orphanages, by Jerome Taylor
To most people Portugal’s state-run orphanages seemed like a safe heaven for thousands of children who had been robbed of their parents. They were called Casa Pia, or Houses of the Pious. But for an elite paedophile ring which included a former ambassadeur and a prominent television celebrity, Casa Pia orphanages were something entirely different. They were supermarkets stocked with children to abuse. On Friday, at the conclusion of the longest trial in Portugal’s history, seven defendants were convicted of using the orphanages to rape and abuse scores of teenage boys in a case that has sent shockwaves through the country’s elite and raised serious concerns over the efficiency of Portugal’s judiciary.
Six of the seven were given jail terms of between 5 and 18 years. The trial, in Lisbon’s top criminal court, is thought to be the largest ever undertaken by Portugal’s court system. Over five and half years, more than 800 witnesses, including 32 alleged victims, gave evidence detailing how a paedophile ring used the orphanages to source children for wealthy and influential clients. The sentencing document alone, of which judges spent most of Friday reading a summary, runs to 2000 pages.
Two of those found guilty include Carlos Cruz, a popular television chat-show host with 30 years in show business, and Jorge Ritto, a former ambassador once sent home in disgrace from a posting in Germany over allegations that he had been having an improper relationship with a young boy in a park. Their co-defendants included Carlos Silvino, an orphanage driver who would ferry children to paedophile houses; Joao Diniz, a prominent doctor who often deliberately picked out deaf and dumb children;Â Manuel Abrantes, a former deputy principal at an orphanage; sollicitor Hugo Marcal and Gertrude Nunes, the only female defendant who allowed her house to be used by the paedophile ring.
The succesful convictions, eight years after the paedophile scandal was exposed, is a major victory for Portugese police, under intense criticism over their handling of the investigation into the disappearance of Madelaine McCann. One of the lead detectives in the Casa Pia case, Paulo Rebelo, also investigated the McCann disappearance after the original lead investigator was sacked. [De zaak-McCann vertoont sterke overeenkomsten met de zaak-Vaatstra in Nederland en met de Dutroux-doden Julie en Melissa in Belgie: bij deze zaken zijn super-invloedrijke mensen betrokken en daarom worden ze niet opgelost. Wat betreft McCann lijkt Manuel Barroso een hoofdrol gespeeld te hebben].
Mr Rebelo and his team of forensic investigatorsÂ -called ‘the cleaners’ because they leave no stones unturned- are said to have played a pivotal role in securing the convictions. But the trial was dogged by accusations that witnesses had been intimidated and allegations that senior politicians [Jan de Wit, Fred Teeven, Krista van Velzen, Alexander Pechtold] turned a blind eye to the abuse to protect friends. Reports that paedophiles were using Casa Pia orphanages to source victims surfaced in the early 1980’s but were swept under the carpet.
Terresa Costa Macedo, a senior government official, said she informed the country’s then president Gereral Ramalho Eanes and provided photographic evidence. But the photographes were ‘lost’ by police and mrs. Macedo said she was also intimidated by phone calls from anonymous callers. “They said they would kill me, flay me and a lot of other things” she recalled [is in Nederland ook gebeurd met een journaliste van TV West in Den Haag].
The present trial started in 2004 after a lengthy investigation started by nine boys, who had been in one of the homes in Lisbon, accused several people of sexual abuse between 1998 and 2001. Their decision to come forward prompted hundreds more witnesses to speak out ans has lead to a tripling in the number of child-abuse investigations across Portugal. Victims have told investigators that abuse at Casa Pia orphanages -of which there are about 10 around the country- occurred as far back as the 1970s, but most witness testimonies used for the trial came from victims who were abused during the 1990s. Prosecutors still believe there are more victims out there too scared to talk.
The prosecution’s case centered around Silvino, known to the paedophile ring as ‘Bibi’. The 53-year old confessed to 639 charges relating to the abuse of children or procuring them for others, and testified against the other defendants. He admitted he had used the orphanages to collect victims and delivered them to co-defendants such as Cruz who, Silvino said, paid cash. [Hier wordt de rol van Nihoul en Dutroux beschreven in de Dutroux-zaak van en Lothar Glandorf in het Demmink-netwerk; zie ook de Netwerk-uitzendingen uit 1998].
Cruz has denied the accusations and claimed in press interviews during the trial that he was the victim of prejudice from one of the three judges trying the case. On Friday the 68-year old dismissed the verdict built on ‘lies and manipulations’ adding: “This is one of the most monstruous judicial mistakes in Portugese history.” He and the other defendants are expected to appeal. It is not clear whether the defendants would be jailed with an appeal pending.
Alvaro Carvalho, a psychiatrist who has counselled the victims and was in court with some of them on Friday, said they were nervous as they awaited the verdict. “They calmed down when the judge ruled that the crimes were proven” mr. Carvalho told reporters. “In a way, it’s society making reparation for what happened to them.”
Pedro Namora, a former resident of a Casa Pia orphanage who says he was abused, became a lawyer and played a pivotal role in the prosecution. “These men have to be condemned” he said.” They committed barbarous crimes against humanity“(THE INDEPENDENT)
