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.
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.
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.
