Jersey home was studio for evil child-porn empire (30.03.08)

News of the World, 30th March 2008
by Philip Whiteside and Lucy Panton, Crime Editor
VILE pictures of babies being raped were taken for a child porn ring at the Jersey kids’ home of horror, police feared last night.Experts think the home is the source of many of the network’s 9,000 sick pictures, discovered in an infamous haul in Holland in the Nineties.It was dubbed the Zandvoort stash, after the town where it was found- but the studio was never uncovered.

Experts are now 90 per cent certain it was the baby unit at Haut de la Garenne’s Aviemore wing. Some of the victims in the black and white pictures were just 18 months old.

None has ever been traced.

A Belgium anti-paedophile group which uncovered the pictures in a computer shop has contacted Jersey police. Deputy Chief Officer Lenny Harper said: “We are looking at the claims and will follow up significant new lines of inquiry.”

Pictures of a second “punishment room” cellar were released this weekend. It is three times bigger than the first chamber but the ceiling is even lower, meaning children would have stooped. More than 200 people say they were abused or know victims. Around 40 people have been identified as potentially being involved in the abuse or covering it up.

The News of the World can also reveal that 121 sex offenders roam Jersey unsupervised as it has no sex offenders’ register. Their crimes range from paedophilia and rape to downloading child porn and cops say they may pose a risk. Politicians say they will make the register law this year.

    L’affaire Zandvoort, posted 21 August 2013 by Francis Hus on antiogre.overblog.com (in French)
    http://antiogre.overblog.com/l-affaire-zandvoort
    (followed by a list of sources).

    Marcel Vervloesem followed his investigation of the paedophile network linking Temse in Belgium and children from Portugal (Madeira) by trying to find out what had becoe of a missing 12 year old German boy Manuel Schadwald. After a confrontation with Robby van den Plancken, an associate of the criminal child trafficker Lothar Glandorf who had been seen with Schadwald, he tracked down Gerrit Ulrich, a German thought to be involved in the trafficking of children from Berlin to the Benelux countries, to Ulrich’s flat in Zandvoort, Netherlands. After speaking to Vervloesem and giving him documents and a CD-ROM, Ulrich fled to Italy where he was killed by van den Plancken.

    A cache of CD-ROMs, baby clothing and other items was found at Ulrich’s flat. The CD-ROMs contained tens of thousands of criminal images of children, including pictures of rape and torture some even involving babies. Vervloesem informed the Dutch authorities. The flat in Zandvoort also contained computers on which hundreds of thousands of images were stored and accessed via an internet site called Appollo [sic]. Clients made payments to a bank account under the name Appollo which was also the name of Ulrich’s yacht in which he had visited France, the Netherlands and the UK and entertained clients. Paedophile orgies had been filmed on the yacht. Ulrich’s contacts also included clients in Spain, Sweden, Belgium, Germany, Eastern Europe and the US.

    Although the French authorities were reluctant to pursue inquiries a French paedophile named Jacques Dugué was found to be the source of a number of the Zandvoort images and thought to be part of a network. The pictures also included photographs taken at Coral, a residential establishment in the south of France caring for children with a range of difficulties. The children were found to have been abused by staff and, it was alleged, by outsiders including prominent public figures, among them a senior ministerial aide. Links to various French abuse and criminal networks were identified, as well as possible links to active members of far-right organisations.

    The Zandvoort images were linked to the Belgian paedophile network of which Marc Dutroux was a member when a victim (“X1”, Régina Louf) who had identified Dutroux as being involved with networks that had abused her recognised the photo of Katrien De Cuyper, a young girl who had gone missing and six months later been found strangled in Antwerp. Louf said she had last seen Katrien de Kuyper at an orgy filmed in a castle near Antwerp during which the girl had been killed. The last time Katrien was seen before her disapppearance was at a cafe downstairs from the offices of two Dutch pornography businesses in which Gerrit Ulrich was a major investor.

    Marcel Vervloesem was subsequently accused of child abuse in less than straightforward circumstances. Despite being found guilty of raping three children, possession of pornographic images and fraud, he was supported by anti-paedophile groups, some of whom believed he had been sent to prison to prevent him from pursuing inconvenient investigations.
