The following article provides a factual overview and references on the topic of organized pedocriminality in the context of geopolitics, elite management, and the Western media system.
Note: No active reading recommendation; only intended for people who (want to) deal with this topic anyway. Not suitable for minors and sensitive persons.
Pedocriminality can have an individual or commercial dimension, but it can also have a political or even geopolitical dimension. This is the case when political representatives or business executives, intelligence services or blackmail are involved.
As the following overview shows, various court trials and victim testimonies, but also sabotaged investigations and murdered witnesses, point to a potentially influential role of pedocriminal individuals and networks in Europe and the United States.
In the case of Italy, for example, it has been documented that the former Italian military secret service SIFAR compiled over 150,000 dossiers on “irregular behaviour” on behalf of the CIA, which enabled it to blackmail and control Italy’s social and political elite for decades.
In the U.S., the extensive network of Jeffrey Epstein, which included American presidents and British royals, has partially come to light in recent years. In the UK, the Westminster dossier and the case of BBC star presenter Jimmy Savile, whose network also included top politicians and aristocrats, had previously been exposed.
The Belgian Dutroux trial, during which about two dozen witnesses died under often mysterious circumstances, provided similar indications and testimonies.
For instance, a suspect identified by several Belgian witnesses was Vice-President of the European Commission and Chairman and later Honorary President of the prestigious Bilderberg Conference, to which Western elites in politics, business, the military and the media are invited.
Another suspect identified by Belgian witnesses prevented the investigation of terrorist attacks as Belgian Minister of Justice and in 1992 ordered the early release of Marc Dutroux; later the man became judge and Advocate General at the European Court of Justice.
A later NATO Secretary General was also identified as a participant by a Belgian witness. These and many other high-level personalities have never been prosecuted.
In many cases, children’s homes or child welfare organisations have directly or indirectly been involved in pedocriminal networks; in other cases, the children were recruited from problem families or procured by kidnapping. Some of these children were ultimately murdered.
While from a societal point of view, people of integrity are desirable as elites, from a power-political point of view, corruptible and controllable persons are often in demand. This results in a fundamental contradiction with far-reaching consequences.
One of the best known cases of organized pedocrime is the Dutroux case of the 1980s and 1990s. This case, however, is not so much about Dutroux himself – who may have acted mainly as a ‘supplier’ – as it is about the fact that both Dutroux and various witnesses described a pedocriminal network that included or still includes significant parts of the Belgian elite and aristocracy. Many of these statements could at least partially be verified. At the same time, around two dozen witnesses involved in the Dutroux trial died under often questionable circumstances. Due to their numerous connections, the Dutroux case and the Belgian witness files undoubtedly have a pan-European significance.

- On the trail of the lost children. (Welt, 2015) In 1996, child molester Dutroux shocked the world. He was probably part of a network with connections in high places. Many of those involved in the case died in mysterious circumstances.
- Why the Dutroux case does not let go of Belgium (Welt, 2016) In the Dutroux case, former investigators are making serious accusations: numerous leads have not been followed up. One question in particular remains unsolved to this day: was the child murderer part of a network or a lone perpetrator? The case shook the confidence of the Belgians because the state had not followed up traces of a network.

- Marc Dutroux and his connections to Germany (ON, 2019) In a 2015 interview, the father of murdered Eefje Lambreck said in an interview that he had knowledge that there were “numerous traces to Germany” regarding the abduction and murder of his daughter.
- Did Marc Dutroux work for the Stasi? (Aachener Zeitung, 2003) The Ministry for State Security (MfS) is said to have blackmailed influential personalities in Western Europe with child pornography. () The US secret service had secured material about the MfS’ espionage department at the turn of the century. Because of the explosive information it contains, including information about Western European politicians, only secret services are allowed to view the reports – filtered by the CIA – until today.

The Belgian Anneke Lucas, who now lives in New York, went public in 2016 and reported that she had been abused as a six to twelve-year-old girl in European elite pedocriminal networks in the 1970s. As the main figure of the network she identified one of the richest and most powerful man in the world at the time, who died in 2017. Her statements are detailed and generally plausible, but in contrast to the statements of the Dutroux witnesses, they have not been recorded or verified by the police and should be treated with appropriate caution.

Nobles, politicians and VIPs were involved in the crimes, says Lucas, who survived only by luck.

2. Great Britain
In the UK, from 2012 onwards, numerous revelations exposed the existence of an extensive pedocriminal network that had been operating for decades and included and possibly still includes significant sections of the British elite, with links to the British royal family, several governments, parliament, the judiciary, police, intelligence services and the media. Among the most significant cases are the Westminster dossier, the Kincora scandal, and former BBC star presenter Jimmy Savile, who had contacts in the highest circles and abused several hundred children.

3. United States
In the United States, several elite pedocriminal networks have already been uncovered:
- As early as the 1980s, the Franklin scandal revealed a nationwide elite pedocriminal network with connections to Washington and the CIA, which procured children from children’s homes and by kidnapping and in some cases murdered them.
- One well-known case concerns late US billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, whose private island had been visited since the 1990s by US President Clinton, British Prince Andrew and other celebrities. Epstein is said to have hanged himself in prison in 2019. According to research and witness statements, Epstein was in contact with Israeli and American secret services and used his network to blackmail high-ranking persons.
- Another case concerns Dennis Hastert – formerly Speaker of the House and thus formally the third highest ranking politician in the USA – who, according to an FBI whistleblower, was blackmailed by domestic and foreign actors because of his pedocriminal past.
- The so-called “Pizzagate”, which became known prior to the 2016 US presidential elections, was a combination of facts, speculation and online disinformation.
- Other unsolved cases concerning child pornography concern the Pentagon and the NSA.
- An older case concerns the attempted blackmailing of Martin Luther King by the FBI by means of secret recordings of extramarital affairs (no connection to pedocriminality). The FBI tried to force King to commit suicide, but failed. Later, King was murdered.

Jeffrey Epstein and some of his influential contacts
In Portugal, the Casa Pia scandal, one of the largest European cases of organised pedocrime, became public in 2002. For decades, children from the Lisbon orphanage Casa Pia were taken to and abused by an elite network of politicians, business people, military and media stars. The court case was dragged out for years, and many of the suspects were ultimately not charged. Another well-known case with a possible pedocriminal background is that of the British girl Maddie McCann, who has been missing in Portugal since her disappearance in 2007.
- Casa Pia child sexual abuse scandal (Wikipedia)
- When ministers rape boys (Welt a.S., 2003) In Portugal, a clique of pederasts has raped hundreds of innocent boys. Among the perpetrators are politicians and high military.
- Pederastor scandal in Portugal reaches into the highest circles (Welt, 2003)
- “Portugal is a paradise for paedophiles” (Welt, 2009) For decades children of the Casa Pia homes have been abused – numerous celebrities have been indicted – trial nearing completion.
- Court convicts celebrities in child molester trial. (Spiegel, 2010) The crime is regarded as the largest case of child abuse in Europe. For decades boys from a state home in Lisbon are said to have been abused by members of Portugal’s social elite. Now a court has found all seven accused guilty.
- Child Molester Verdict in Portugal: Suffering without End (Spiegel, 2010) Justice comes late, too late for many: members of Portugal’s elite abused minors in a Lisbon children’s home. The crimes shook the entire country, the victims are still suffering today – and it took the judiciary six years to impose long prison sentences.
- Missing persons case Madeleine McCann (Wikipedia)
Already from the Dutroux complex (see above) various traces led to Germany. The Belgian Anneke Lucas also claims to have been “given to” several German politicians in the 1970s. Further links to pedocriminality exist in the so-called “NSU complex”, the so-called “Saxony Swamp”, as well as in the historical environment of the Green Party. Another area with geopolitical blackmail potential is the often opaque GDR/MfS past of some of Germany’s leading politicians.
The so-called NSU group allegedly was involved in a series of murders in the Turkish-Kurdish milieu between 2000 to 2006, but there is no direct evidence for this. The alleged suicide of the two group leaders also seems unlikely based on known forensics. On the other hand, there are certain indications that the NSU group may have been connected to a pedocriminal network.
- After the NSU verdict: The mystery of investigators, child traces and dead witnesses remain (T-Online, 2018) The NSU files will be closed with the end of the mammoth trial of Beate Zschäpe. This leaves oppressive questions. The reason: remarkable connections and mysterious deaths.
- NSU: Uwe Böhnhardt and the death of a nine-year-old boy (Welt, 2017) To this day Uwe Böhnhardt’s role in the murder of nine-year-old Bernd Beckmann in Jena remains unsolved. As is often the case in the NSU complex, finds in files show that investigators simply did not follow important leads.
- The NSU and the Peggy Case: Child Pornography as Terror Financing? (NTV, 2016) Next to the body of murdered Peggy, the DNA of NSU terrorist Uwe Böhnhardt is found. Now the police must investigate how she got there. Are the terrorists operating a paedophile network? Or is there another explanation?
- Peggy, Böhnhardt and a girl who Zschäpe called “Mama” (Zeit, 2016) A child’s shoe, a blonde girl, child porn at Zschäpe: NSU investigators repeatedly found evidence of child abuse. Now some cases are being reopened.

- SOKO Braunlicht (Telepolis, 2017) The topic of “organized crime” is consistently faded out in connection with the NSU – although this is precisely the framework that connects everything.
- Sachsensumpf: Dangerous Traces (ZEIT, 2012) In Leipzig a chief investigator was put out of action – possibly because he asked the wrong questions in the Saxon red-light and corruption scandal. For there is nothing to reproach him for.
- Sachsensumpf: Martyrdom of the Forced Prostitutes Mandy Kopp (Welt, 2013) At the age of 16, Mandy Kopp was forced into prostitution. Later she testified in the alleged scandal about the “Sachsensumpf” and ended up in court.
- “Sachsensumpf” affair: witness raises serious accusations (Sächsische, 2013) The “Sachsensumpf” continues to cause speculation even after years. Even the way the Saxon authorities deal with the accusations themselves becomes twilight. Allegedly many files are said to have disappeared.
- Video: Child prostitution: Did de Maiziere cover up the involvement of politicians? (ARD, 2007) When Thomas de Maizière was still a minister in Saxony, the so-called “Saxony Swamp” scandal broke out: judges and lawyers are said to have been filmed during sexual assaults on minors, in order to later have leverage against them. The Office for the Protection of the Constitution is said to have been aware of this and thus Thomas de Maizière as well.
- Video: Child abusers: Interview with Saxony Swamp victim Mandy Kopp (CTV, 20 minutes, 2013) What Mandy Kopp experienced as a minor is hard to imagine. She was held prisoner for years and forced into prostitution. Today Mandy Kopp herself is on trial for libel. Her offense: She identified the perpetrators. Among them were real estate agents, lawyers, and even judges and attorneys.
- The suppressed paedophilia scandal among the Greens (Der Westen, 2013) A member of the state executive board of the Greens in NRW, who has since died, is said to have sexually abused two boys in the 1980s. The boys of yesteryear lived in a shared flat in Kamp-Linfort. Once again, the question arises as to how far the Greens are actually involved in paedophile activities.
- Paedophilia accusation against Greens: Sex offenders coordinated green pederasts (Stern, 2013) Franz Walter, the Göttingen political scientist, is to investigate the paedophilic tendencies of the early Greens. However, more and more frightening details are already becoming known.

- Child pornography: Stasi blackmailed politicians (Welt, 2003) During the reunification, the CIA was able to obtain material about the espionage department of the MfS’s headquarters, Enlightenment. Due to the explosive nature of the information contained therein, including information about Western European politicians, these documents are still withheld from the public. Only secret services were allowed to inspect the reports filtered by the CIA.
- Berlin abuse scandal (Kentler case): A powerful network of paedophiles reaches far into the authorities (Berliner Zeitung, 2020) For decades, foster children in Berlin were given to sex offenders.

TV movies “Operation Sugar”
ARD television films from 2012 and 2016 on child trafficking and child abuse in Germany. The films are based on true events.
- Film: Operation Sugar (ARD, 90 minutes, 2012)
- Film: Operation Zucker, Part 2: Hunting party (ARD, 90 minutes, 2016)
- TV movie “Operation Sugar” (Star, 2016) “Nothing in our film is unrealistic. We had to be more careful that there are fictional scenes at all. It’s a mixture of all our stories and research of the last few years,” says Ina Jung, author at Bayerischer Rundfunk. () “Such acts are committed by men who occupy high-ranking positions in our society and who manipulate and blackmail each other with what has happened.”
In Austria, there are both older cases, in which children’s homes cooperated with pedocriminals for decades, and modern abduction cases, such as the case of Natascha Kampusch in particular. Although this case has been presented by the official authorities as an isolated individual case, independent investigations point to an elite pedocriminal network, which could explain the mysterious deaths in the Kampusch investigations: both the kidnapper and the chief investigator were killed.
- Documentary: Scandal in Austria’s children’s homes – Abused and mistreated (ARD, Doku, 45 Minuten, 2013) Austria’s former children’s homes are suing: In state institutions, minors have apparently been abused and mistreated for decades. Beatings were the order of the day. Boys as well as girls had to be of sexual service to their carers, were “rented” to paedophiles.
- Kampusch: Chief investigator passed on the information (Kurier, 2012) Confidential notes prove that criminalist Kröll was still looking for background information even after the proceedings were closed.
- Natascha Kampusch case: The mysterious death of Colonel Kröll (Spiegel, 2013) Franz Kröll, chief investigator in the kidnapping case of Natascha Kampusch, died six months after the crime was solved. According to police, the 59-year-old allegedly killed himself. An expert now contradicts the suicide theory.
- Kampusch kidnapper Priklopil: public prosecutor’s office examines doubts about suicide theory (Spiegel, 2016) Was the kidnapper of Natascha Kampusch already dead when he was run over by a train? According to information from SPIEGEL ONLINE, the Vienna Public Prosecutor’s Office is investigating a charge of suspected murder.
- Kampusch case: “I rule out the one-perpetrator thesis” (Die Presse, 2011) Ex-OGH President Johann Rzeszut, most recently a member of the Evaluation Commission in the Natascha Kampusch case, rules out the official one-perpetrator thesis in the “Presse” interview.
- Former chief investigator: “Perhaps a prominent person is involved in the Kampusch case” (Tages-Anzeiger, 2009, Archive) “I am a representative of the multi-offender theory. I always have been, since the most important witness made corresponding statements during her first interrogation. And she has maintained these statements until now.”

According to individual testimonies, there were connections to Switzerland from both Belgian and French child molester networks, but these were never investigated. The Belgian Anneke Lucas (see above) also claims to have been transferred via Switzerland as a child and abused there. For some years now, the association Care About Ritual Abuse (CARA) has been documenting statements made by victims of ritual sexual violence in Switzerland.

Presiding judge of Zurich
Starting in 2017, it became known that investigations against a pedocriminal Zurich court president were sabotaged in the 1980s and 1990s. According to witnesses, the heads of Zurich’s judiciary, public prosecutor’s office, police and politicians were involved in ignoring or covering up the case. Several of those involved were later even promoted, including to the top of the Zurich Education Directorate and the Criminal Investigation Department.
- Video: How paedophile offences are covered (KlaTV, 2019) At the end of the 1980s, an investigation was conducted against a presumed paedophile court president. But the case was dropped. Another case that proves how the highest circles are involved in child molester networks and how they are covered up. Zurich police officer Peter Mathys in interview.
- Public prosecutor against public prosecutor (Tagesanzeiger, 2017) From the 1990s onwards, the criminal justice system took the prosecution of paedophilia seriously. Even the chief public prosecutor was investigated.
- A policeman researches (Migros Magazine, 2017) Hardly had he gone on duty than the young Zurich policeman Peter Mathys learned that an alleged paedophile court president was under investigation.

- See also: Corruption and parties with call girls – Geneva police under fire (Bluewin, 2019) French-speaking Swiss media have brought to light a corruption affair in the Geneva police force. Several police officers are accused of bribery and violation of official secrecy.
Another confirmed case of elite pedocriminality in Switzerland is the so-called “Basel Zodiac”, which came to light in 1998. The “Zodiac” was a paedocriminal ring of, among others, academics, lawyers, doctors and businessmen from “the better circles of Basel”, who gave themselves animal names as a cover and abused male prostitutes and under-age boys at sadistic “sex parties” since the 1960s.
International connections to Spain and Thailand were proven, and those to the Belgian Dutroux network were suspected. The background of the Zodiac was never completely uncovered, no charges were brought (among other things because of the statute of limitations) and the case disappeared completely from the media after the summer of 1998.
In recent times, there have been various speculations on the Internet about connections to Swiss federal politics and the P-26 secret army, but no evidence has been found to date.

In 2018, Thomas Walther, the long-standing head of the Coordination Unit for Combating Internet Crime (Kobik) of the Federal Office of Police (Fedpol), went public as a whistleblower. Walther argued that the work of the Kobik, including in the area of child pornography, had been officially obstructed. The Fedpol reacted with a house search and several charges against him, which were all dismissed.
- Whistleblower Thomas Walther: “The Fedpol wants to destroy me” (Blick, 2018) He fought cybercriminals and resisted weakening his authority – now the federal government is trying to muzzle the quarrelsome investigator.
- He took on the Fedpol – now the judiciary agrees with him (SonntagsZeitung, 2018) Ex-cadre policeman and whistleblower Thomas Walter did not violate official secrecy when he sent internal information to employees. () Children – also from Switzerland – had been abused by paedophiles for an unnecessarily long time because the work of the Kobik had been obstructed.
Other cases (without direct connection to elite pedocriminality)
In Switzerland, the practice of so-called “Verdingung” of children existed since the 19th century and until about 1980: “Verdingkinder” were taken away from their biological parents (or given away by them) by the authorities for the purpose of care and education, some of them were auctioned off at “Verdingmärkte”, and accommodated by interested parties who often used them for forced labour on farms and sometimes abused them. Further cases of long-term, systematic sexual abuse are documented in children’s homes and boarding schools.
- Verdingung (Wikipedia) In modern Swiss history, Verdingung refers to the external placement of children to provide them with a standard of living and education. Often the children (in fact already disenfranchised by the authorities) were placed with farmers, who usually exploited, maltreated and abused them as cheap labour.
- Those responsible wanted to cover up everything: Children in Freiburg orphanage sexually abused (Blick, 2016) In the Catholic boarding school Marini in the canton of Freiburg, children were sexually abused from 1929 to 1955. This is the conclusion of a study commissioned by Bishop Charles Morerod. Those responsible covered up the incidents.
- A dark chapter of Appenzell history (NZZ, 2017) In the Steig children’s home in Appenzell Innerrhoden, children between 1945 and 1984 were physically punished, sometimes excessively, by nuns. Sexual abuse is also said to have taken place in the home. Now the cantonal government has asked the victims to apologize.

On the subject of elite pedocriminality, various forms of false information can be found on the Internet, which are spread for the purpose of clickbaiting or targeted disinformation. Some of the most well-known examples are listed below.
- UN Secretary General Guterres: In connection with the migration pact of 2018, it was claimed that UN Secretary General António Guterres was involved in the Portuguese Casa Pia scandal of 2002. This is not true. Guterres resigned as Prime Minister prematurely at the end of 2001, a few months before the scandal became public, due to an election defeat. In the Casa Pia scandal, he was neither accused, nor was he accused by a victim. However, he defended his former Labour Minister, Paulo Pedroso, who was remanded in custody on abuse charges but was not charged.

- In general, it should be considered that the accusation of pedocriminality can also be used maliciously to deliberately harm innocent people or to destroy them in the media.
