10 year-old Natascha Kampusch was kidnapped in 1998.
Natascha escaped from her captor, Wolfgang Priklopil, in August 2006.
Natascha Kampusch had been held captive in a cellar within 30 kilometres of Vienna, in Austria.
Natascha's disappearance happened at a time when Europe was preoccupied by the notorious Belgian Dutroux case of child abduction and murder.
The following is from The Guardian, 25 August, 2006:
Yesterday, there were embarrassing questions as to why investigators had failed to trace Natascha. Immediately after her abduction one eyewitness described how she had seen Natascha get into a white van.
Detectives tracked 1,000 white van owners in the area and interviewed Priklopil in April 1998, a month after Natascha disappeared. He told them he used the van for work. They believed him - and left without searching either the house or garage.
On Wednesday when they arrived at the house the van was still there. They also found Natascha's passport, which she had with her the day she vanished. Another neighbour, retired policeman Franz Hafergut, had also complained to the authorities because Priklopil used a .22 rifle to shoot pigeons. Police officers knocked on his door - but left.
Marc Dutroux is a Belgian.
Allegedly, Belgium is an important centre of the Israeli mafia's sex trafficking operations.
Reportedly, Dutroux was part of a mafia-style operation which kidnapped and killed children and which organised orgies for top people including politicians and police.
In 1989, Dutroux was sentenced to 13 years in jail for kidnapping and raping young girls.
He was out within 3 years.
Police re-arrested him in 1996 for kidnapping, child pornography, murder, and child prostitution.
In 1998, while being transferred to a court house without handcuffs, Dutroux managed to escape.
He was caught some hours later.
He did not go on trial until 2004.
It is asserted by http://judicial-inc.biz/marc_dutroux.htm that Marc Dutroux had links to the Jewish mafia.
Reportedly, Dutroux's accomplices were:
Benjamin Weinstein - the money man 'who traveled to Tel Aviv and Moscow'.
Michelle Martin - Dutroux's wife who allegedly traveled through Europe abducting children.
Michel Nihoul - a nightclub owner who allegedly handled police and politicians.
Michel Lelievre - allegedly, his speciality was drugging and psychologically preparing children.
In September of 1996, twenty-three suspects, at least nine of whom were police officers, were detained and questioned about their possible complicity in the crimes and/or their negligence in investigating the case.
Belgian state investigators were brought in, and they raided homes of 23 magistrates, politicians and police.
Michel Nihoul was the one who allegedly organised orgies in a Belgian chateau.
These orgies were allegedly attended by a former European commissioner, judges, senior politicians, lawyers and policemen.
A book was written called 'The X-files: What Belgium Was Not Supposed to Know About the Dutroux Affair.'
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.
At the village of Forchies-la-Marche, the police investigated an institute of Black Magic. They dug up human skulls.
The International Herald Tribune did a famous piece about all this. They quoted a judge called Guy Poncelet as saying the X-files book was convincing. Belgium Pedophilia Scandal /Did Authorities Cover Up Its Scope ...
Guy Poncelet's son, a police officer, was mysteriously shot dead. This son had been investigating a case involving Dutroux.
Judge Connerotte was the judge who caught Dutroux. The authorities removed Connerotte from the case.
De Baets was the official in charge of investigating the X-files. The authorities removed him from the case.
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 was shot dead before he could speak out.
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 affair and was forced to resign.
Melchior Wathelet was the judge 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.
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.
The BBC referred to other mysterious deaths: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/correspondent_europe/1962263.stm
According to an article at Conspiracy planet:
Cools had most imprudently announced to the Belgian press after his return from Switzerland, 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.
The following 'news' items are quoted at:
Rome, Italy - Italian and Russian police, working together, broke up a ring of Jewish gangsters who had been involved in the manufacture of child rape and snuff pornography.
Three Russian Jews and eight Italian Jews were arrested after police discovered they had been kidnapping non-Jewish children between the ages of two and five years old from Russian orphanges, raping the children, and then murdering them on film.
Mostly non-Jewish customers, including 1700 nationwide, 600 in Italy, and and unknown number in the United States, paid as much as $20,000 per film to watch little children being raped and murdered.
Jewish officials in a major Italian news agency tried to cover the story up, but were circumvented by Italian news reporters, who broadcasts scenes from the films live at prime time on Italian television to more than 11 million Italian viewers.
Jewish officials then fired the executives responsible, claiming they were spreading "blood libel."
June 23, 2004
Sentence has been passed in the Belgian "trial of the century" of the pedophile child murderer Marc Dutroux and his accomplices.
Dutroux was sentenced to life in prison plus 10 years "internment at the government's pleasure" - a measure intended to block his being paroled.
His mate and accomplice Michelle Martin got 30 years in prison, as requested by the prosecution.
Another accomplice, Lelièvre, got 25 years, 5 less than requested by the prosecution.
Peculiarly, the enigmatic alleged ringleader Michel Nihoul was only sentenced to 5 years in prison, despite requests by the prosecution that no sentence less than 10 years be pronounced.
Dutroux claimed that two police officers had helped Lelievre and himself to kidnap Marchal, and Lambreks who were later raped and murdered.
The common knowledge that police officers and high ranking officals also attended Nihouls orgies at the chateau must give further fuel to the fire that the accused was not acting alone.
There have been suggestions that the security services of one country or another may have made use of Dutroux's network in order to control certain top people through blackmail.
How do you persuade members of a parliament to vote for actions that are illegal and that will do harm to their own country?
How do you persuade policemen and judges to put innocent people into jail and to let the guilty go free?
How do you persuade journalists to lie about terrorism?
