In Belgium there have been numerous prominent clubs, but one appears to stand out in particular from the rest: the Cercle des Nations. Centered in Brussels, its scope was a truly international, but curiously aligned with the Conservative establishment. The club was followed up in the 1990s-2010s by the Cercle de Lorraine. Then aligned more with the Liberal establishment, the latter became known as the most exclusive club in Belgium. The club ceased to exist in 2020-2021, with the development of the global Coronavirus pandemic.
1. Child Abuse Networks
Investigations into persons, organizations and scandals dealing with elite tied child abuse networks.
Le Mirano: Notorious nightclub at the heart of Brussels
"It was no limits" they say. Quite literally. When it comes to the investigation into Philippe Cryns and the victim-witnesses X2 and VM1, it would make sense that there are unspoken "anecdotes" about Le Mirano. With many ties to the fascist underground, and the alleged claim of Juan Mendez, it is suspected that there may be a connection to the Gang of Nijvel.
Pink Ballets Affairs: Fortunato Israel, Lydia Montaricourt and Andre Pinon dossiers summarized
The Pink Ballets affairs lies at the center of the child abuse network accusations that came before the Dutroux affair of the '90s. With the Pink Ballets scandal, there are direct links to the unsolved Gang of Nijvel case, which point to a significant relationship between the two. The fascist underground and these child abuse network accusations are clearly interwoven, with the X-dossiers revealing a potential for continuity of such sordid activities, that also seemed to involve a Strategy of Tension type effort and protection of these black networks.
Roger Boas and the ASCO “factory of the films”
The ASCO factory, indicated in the testimony of Regina Louf (X1) and the Gendarme ATLAS dossier. Is there anything to back up the claims of mysterious network involving the company?
Paul Vanden Boeynants: Grandfather of the Belgian Fascist Underground, accused in ‘Pink Ballets’, X-dossiers and more
There may have never been a more controversial and shady Belgian politician than Paul Vanden Boeynants. A two time Prime Minister and Roman Catholic, he has been accused of things as tax evasion, drug trafficking, to fomenting a fascist underground and plotting to destabilize Belgium and even child abuse and murder. All but the tax evasion charges ever brought VdB to trial.
“Baron Noir” Benoît de Bonvoisin: Accused of sadistic child abuse and murder, linked to fascist underground terrorism
Le Baron Noir (the Black Baron) is a very suiting name for a Belgian man of nobility that funded, supported and fomented a fascist underground, which was involved in all kinds of suspicious and criminal activities during the Cold War. It is even more fitting for a Belgian man of nobility that has been directly accused of the abuse and in one case of murder of children by no less than five victim-witnesses. That man is Benoit de Bonvoisin.
The Lippens Brothers: An Odious duo?
Two brothers of the Lippens family have been accused of child abuse from several sources. Will these accusations ever be thoroughly investigated is yet to be determined.
The Unsolved Murder of Katrien De Cuyper
Did X1 witness, compelled to murder, Katrien De Cuyper at Castle Kattenhof in 1991? We won't know for sure unless the investigation is reopened with the knowledge of X1's testimony is still credible even though minor details have differed. With all the connections between the people accused by X1 are put into view, it enhances the case rather than discredit it.
The Unsolved Murder of Carine Dellaert
X1 apparently witnessed Carine "Clo" Dellaert's murder, at which she saw similar people involved in murders of other girls. The life of Carine is briefly examined and X1's testimony is determined to have been credible.
Michel Vander Elst: Lawyer of the Nebula
“You don’t believe that they [Haemers gang] did these robberies with the four or five of them? To pull off something like that you need an army of accomplices! Well-placed accomplices." (December 1993, quote of Etienne Delhuvenne)
