Until recently, there was no topic that was more taboo than that of child sex abuse but over the past 2 years, it's become more publicly discussed, with the mass-arrests of thousands of child pornographers and with the reports of several thousands of abused children in Catholic dioceses around the world.
Even 8 years ago, when I first started publishing FKTV, it was a topic that you couldn't discuss in detail because that might violate your Google advertising Terms of Service. Well, having myself long since been de-platformed and the subject finally coming into the light of day, these developments now allow me to feature this newly-released, must-see blockbuster, 'Imperium', a 10-volume meta-documentary on the full gamut of child trafficking. This is Volume I, divided into the following five parts:
Part 1: Belgium — The Dutroux Affair
Part 2: Lithuania — The Neringa Case
Part 3: The United Kingdom — BBC, Jimmy Savile,
Johnny Rotten and much more
Part 4: Kendall — Presented on Dr. Phil's TV Show
Part 5: The Republican Party — The Franklin Cover-Up
I will summarize just the case of the infamous sadistic Belgian pedophile, murderer and drug dealer, Marc Dutroux. He was first convicted in 1989 for the abduction and rape of five young girls, the youngest of whom was 11 years old. He was re-arrested, three years after his release in 1996 for kidnapping, torturing and sexually abusing six girls, aged between 8 and 19, four of whom had died.
When the 1996 case broke, the witnesses believed that they would finally blow up Belgium's entrenched aristocratic
. Instead, eight years later, only Marc Dutroux had received a life sentence. Although Dutroux was convicted in 2004 of all charges brought against him, he continually insisted that he had not acted alone, that his was a "show trial" to "hide the truth" and to protect the interests of "organized corruption."
According to a
, Dutroux insisted that, "Only 10% of the case had been examined...He urged police to follow up on clues he said would prove he was working for a network which kidnapped girls to be sold into prostitution."
Over the course of the 8-year investigation leading up to the trial, several important witnesses – and a judge – were "suicided," while other justice officials were spuriously fired. The courts were hostile towards the witnesses, with charges of perjury brought against those who refused to recant their stories.
The local police had gone to absurd lengths to keep the details of the case secret and Belgian Federal investigators withheld proof of the claims of the witnesses, especially the names and visual evidence relating to the high-profile members of the alleged child abuse ring.
Although the botched investigation brought over 300,000 people to march in the streets and general strikes by several unions, including the firefighters, who turned their hoses on the courthouse, the failure of justice caused many Belgians to become resigned that details of the case would never be known. The files of the case remain sealed to this day, the presiding judge having asserted that he saw "no reason to reopen them."
This film interviews Dutroux's former tenant and other witnesses who did manage to survive.
