Petitie Europees Parlement: problemen met Facebook


declerck.leterme

 

Jacqueline de Croÿ, voorzitster van de Stichting  'Les Princesses de Croÿ-Lancelotti' en ondervoorzitster van de vzw Werkgroep Morkhoven, had inderdaad voor een deel gelijk door in haar verzoekschrift voor het Europees Parlement te stellen dat de Belgische justitie 'een monster' is.

Men moet werkelijk een monster zijn om een kinderpornozaak met 90.000 slachtoffertjes, waaronder duizenden gefolterde en verkrachte kinderen (waaronder zelfs baby's en een zichtbaar overleden meisje van ongeveer 5 jaar), zonder een krimp te geven, in de doofpot te steken.

Vandaar dat ik vermoed dat er, buiten de gerenommeerde Franse jeugdmagistraat, ook andere perverse magistraten bij betrokken zijn.

Dat verklaart ook de door de Hoge Raad voor de Justitie erkende verdwijning van de ontlastende stukken uit Marcel Vervloesem's strafdossier (om hem éénsluidend en zonder tegenspraak te kunnen veroordelen); de door de Hoge Raad voor de Justitie erkende verdwijning van de 7 kinderporno-cd-roms Zandvoort die onze vereniging aan de Koning had overgemaakt; het stilzwijgen van de opéénvolgende ministers van justitie (Stefaan De Clerck, Marc Verwilghen, Laurette Onkelinx, Jo Vandeurzen en opnieuw Stefaan De Clerck).

Dat de Belgische Justitie soms ook een echte kindertuin is, blijkt nog eens uit de manier waarop men over het verzoekschrift in de Commissie Verzoekschriften van het Europees Parlement reageert.

Naast het organiseren van anonieme telefoontjes, houdt men zich daar namelijk bezig met het laten verwijderen en weer terugplaatsen van berichten en commentaren op Facebook die betrekking hebben op het behandelde verzoekschrift.  Publicaties en bezoeken van geinteresseerden worden systematisch geblokkeerd.  Die technieken zal men ook wel aanwenden om te verhinderen dat men de petitie 'Free Marcel Vervloesem' ondersteunt en tekent.

Ook tegenover ons verenigingslid Marcel Vervloesem die reeds twee jaar lang in de gevangenis is opgesloten, worden kinderachtige en perverse technieken toegepast.
Men doet bijvoorbeeld snel een belofte als het Europees parlement ter sprake komt.  Enkele dagen of weken later trekt men die belofte dan weer terug in.
Een ander voorbeeld: Justitieminister De Clerck reageerde wekenlang niet op een aangetekende brief van Marcel over het blokkeren van zijn dossier voor de strafuitvoeringsrechtbank en zijn kritieke gezondheidstoestand maar toen het Europees parlement ter sprake kwam, gaven hij en zijn diensten plotseling de opdracht om het dossier van Marcel weer even te deblokkeren zodat men ons als 'leugenaars' kan bestempelen.
En men voelt zich haast gelukkig doordat men, voor de zoveelste keer, een bijkomende genadeslag aan Marcel's overblijvende gezondheid heeft kunnen toebrengen, wat altijd wel meegenomen is als men folteringen, verkrachtingen en moorden van kinderen absoluut in de doofpot wil steken.
Dat soort van sadistische en criminele praktijken past men trouwens toe op alle gevangenen...

Het begint voor iederéén duidelijk te worden, denk ik, dat de mensen die zich daarmee bezig houden, ook de mensen zijn die kunnen genieten van het folteren en verkrachten van weerloze kinderen en baby's. Maar alhoewel zij misdadig en ziek zijn, worden zij in naam van de Belgische regering en bij monde van 'Justitie'minister De Clerck die voor de gehersenspoelde publieke opinie blijft herhalen dat 'kindermisbruiken moeten bestreden worden' en 'misdaden niet ongestraft mogen blijven', beschermd.

De Amerikaanse schrijver Georges Orwell noemde dit 'double speak'.
In één van zijn boeken is er sprake van het zogenaamde Ministerie van Waarheid en Liefde (te vergelijken met de Belgische Justitie) dat hersenloze mensen dagelijks volpropt met woorden over 'gelijkheid' en 'liefhebben' terwijl men eigenlijk alles doet opdat mensen elkaar zouden haten.

Als men begint met aktivisten zoals Marcel Vervloesem uit de weg te ruimen om tienduizenden kindermisbruiken in de doofpot te kunnen steken, dan zouden we vandaag of morgen wel eens wakker kunnen worden met het besef dat het woord 'democratie' enkel maar als een masker diende om het onrecht, de onrechtvaardigheid, het bedrog, de folteringen, het toelaten van de kinderpornoindustrie en de moorden in een eerder totalitaire Staat te camoufleren.

Rachel Corrie, ready to break the siege of Gaza!


Rachel Corrie, ready to break the siege of Gaza!

“Introducing the MV Rachel Corrie”
'The ship has been
 renamed the MV Rachel Corrie, in memory of the 23-year-old solidarity activist crushed to death in 2003 by an Israeli military bulldozer as she attempted to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian home in Gaza.

On May Day weekend, a mini convoy of vans loaded with medical supplies from eight different cities in Ireland and England will be delivering and loading these badly-needed supplies on the ship. The people of Norway have donated more than 6 tons of paper and school supplies with a goal of 25 tons to be loaded as cargo. Israel refuses to allow paper and supplies in for the children.'

Petitie 'Free Marcel Vervloesem': Minister De Clerck is medeplichtig


Teken de petitie 'Free Marcel Vervloesem!'

prev13Onderstaande lijst van de meer dan 20 spoedopname's en operaties van de aktievoerder Marcel Vervloesem werd meer dan 40 keren naar minister van Justitie Stefaan De Clerck gestuurd.

Maar de Minister die de kinderpornozaak Zandvoort met de 90.000 slachtoffertjes en de verdwijning van te onderzoeken kinderpornomateriaal in deze zaak blijft dichtdekken om zijn magistraten en andere kameraden te beschermen, vindt dat mensen zoals Marcel Vervloesem slechts drie dagen voor hun 'vermoedelijk overlijden', de gevangenis mogen uitgeschopt worden. Op die manier kan men de begrafeniskosten vermijden.

Marcel Vervloesem's dossier wordt door de directie van de gevangenis van Turnhout en de justitiediensten van De Clerck voor de zoveelste keer geblokkeerd.  Op die manier wordt de uitspraak van de rechter van de Antwerpse strafuitvoeringsrechtbank, zoals dit de gewoonte is binnen het gevangeniswezen, naar de prullenmand verwezen.

Dit kan alleen met de stilzwijgende goedkeuring van De Clerck zelf gebeuren.

De geneesheer van de gevangenis van Turnhout waarschuwt intussen al wekenlang voor een niercrisis.  Enkele weken geleden brachten Marcel Vervloesem en zijn advocaat Raf Jespers die lid is van de Liga voor de Mensenrechten die zich helaas niets van deze zaak aantrekt, Minister De Clerck per aangetekende brief op de hoogte van deze situatie.

Maar de Minister die de overbevolking van zijn gevangenissen bestrijdt door er met zijn Penitentiaire Gezondheidsdienst voor te zorgen dat heel wat gevangenen zonder voldoende medische zorg tenslotte overlijden, antwoordt natuurlijk niet.  Een begrafenis buiten de gevangenismuren komt nu éénmaal goedkoper uit dan een hospitalisatie.

Het gevolg hiervan is dat Marcel Vervloesem's benen en voeten bijna barsten van het opgestapelde water en tal van infecties vertonen.

      Airline pilot cleared of role in 9/11


      Airline pilot cleared of role in 9/11 after 'nine years of hell'

      Lotfi Raissi eligible for up to £2m compensation after wrongful imprisonment and damage to health

      The pilot falsely accused of training the hijackers responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks has won his almost decade-long miscarriage of justice battle.

      Lotfi Raissi, an Algerian living in Britain who lost his career as an airline pilot, suffered wrongful imprisonment and damage to his health, will now be eligible for up to £2m compensation.

      Raissi became the first person to be accused of participating in the 2001 attack in New York and Washington. He was held for five months in Belmarsh high security prison in London and told he would be charged with conspiracy and murder in the US where he could face the death penalty.

      Today he described the last nine years as "hell" but said he was delighted with the decision by Jack Straw, the justice secretary. "I have suffered such a great injustice, I'm grateful for this verdict. They took almost 10 years of my life and now I'm starting to breathe again."

      He added: "I've been exonerated, not just by a court, but by the British government. Now I can turn the page, but I can never forgive them for what they did."

      Raissi's solicitor, Jules Carey, said: "The ministry of justice has formally notified me that the justice secretary has found that Mr Raissi is 'completely exonerated' of the allegations of terrorism. The allegations of terrorism were utterly ruinous to him both personally and professionally."

      Carey said the decision to compensate Raissi on the grounds of "exoneration" rather than "serious default" by a public authority was "extremely unfortunate" as it meant that mistakes made by the CPS and the Metropolitan police in the case, identified by the court of appeal in 2008, would now not be investigated.

      James Welch, legal director at human rights charity Liberty, said: "The shabby treatment of this innocent man is a chilling reminder of why we all need the protection of the courts."

      Raissi's arrest, at his home in Colnbrook, Berkshire, 10 days after the 9/11 attacks, followed an extradition request from the FBI. In court, where he awaited extradition to the US on a holding charge, he was described by British lawyers representing the US as one of the lead instructors of the four hijackers.

      A judge threw the case out in 2002 and said there was no evidence against him. Since then, Raissi has sought an apology. In 2008, in a judgment that exonerated him, three court of appeal judges condemned the Met and the CPS for abusing the court process, presenting false allegations and not disclosing evidence.

      Today, a Ministry of Justice spokesman said: "After careful consideration of all the relevant material available to him, the justice secretary, Jack Straw, has notified Mr Raissi that he is eligible for compensation."

      La guerre du Vietnam


      Ðiện Biên Phủ et la guerre du Vietnam

      Le peuple vietnamien avait déjà dû mener une longue guerre d’indépendance contre la France, de 1945 à 1954. À la fin de cette guerre d’Indochine, qui se termina pour les Français par la déroute de Dien Bien Phu, l’effort militaire français était financé par les États-Unis. En effet, ceux-ci voulaient mettre à mal les anciens empires coloniaux. Mais ils ne voulaient pas que cela fasse le jeu de l’URSS, vers laquelle les nationalistes vietnamiens regardaient.
      Les troupes américaines prirent progressivement le relais de la France. J.F. Kennedy envoya plusieurs milliers de prétendus « conseillers militaires » ; il y en avait 16 000 quand il fut assassiné. Ensuite, Johnson – qui, en raison de l’hostilité de la population à la guerre, fit campagne comme le candidat de la « paix » -, puis Nixon – qui promit une « paix honorable », envoyèrent toujours plus de soldats. En 1968, il y en avait plus de 500 000, pour combattre une guérilla qui était censée être minoritaire. Les États-Unis y mirent toute leur technologie, tous leurs moyens militaires. Ils cherchèrent à mobiliser la population américaine. Ils déversèrent sur ce petit pays plus de deux fois plus de bombes qu’il n’en avait été largué par la totalité des belligérants pendant toute la Seconde Guerre mondiale. L’aviation américaine utilisa des quantités d’armes chimiques, notamment des défoliants, comme l’agent orange, dont la dioxine a empoisonné quatre millions de Vietnamiens. En tout, peut-être un million de combattants vietnamiens et quatre millions de civils ont perdu la vie dans cette guerre, dont la population paye encore le prix aujourd’hui.

      Hymne


      J’aime le voile…


      J’aime les femmes avec un foulard et… je déteste les hommes qui gardent le silence sur le génocide en Palestine.

      J’aime mon frère Jimmy pour ses idées brillantes et sa poésie pétillante.

      J’ai beaucoup aimé ma mère qui a été obligée de porter le voile dans l’église.

      Les autorités ne parlent que du voile pour cacher leurs crimes.
      Ils utilisent le débat sur le foulard pour cacher leur vrai visage.

      Democracy and tyranny: where is the difference?



      McCain Proposes Indefinite Detention Without Trial for Citizens

      John McCain


      Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) has introduced a bill that would allow the President to imprison an unlimited number of American citizens (as well as foreigners) indefinitely without trial. Known as The Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010, or S. 3081, the bill authorizes the President to deny a detainee a trial by jury simply by designating that person an “enemy belligerent.”

      The bill, which has eight cosponsors, explicitly names U.S. citizens as among those who can be detained indefinitely without trial:

      An individual, including a citizen of the United States, determined to be an unprivileged enemy belligerent ... may be detained without criminal charges and without trial for the duration of hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners in which the individual has engaged, or which the individual has purposely and materially supported, consistent with the law of war and any authorization for the use of military force provided by Congress pertaining to such hostilities.

      Disgusting conditions in prison


      child_prison


      Jamie Scott Ordered To Scrub Prison Walls with One Arm - From Sis. Marpessa

      Posted by Elish Delaproser -  April 19th, 2010
      Jamie Scott called her mother this morning and informed her that Warden Holman woke her from sleep, demanding to know what her mother was posting on the internet regarding mold on the walls and leaking in her unit.
      She got up and showed him the mold all over the walls as well as sewage that was coming up out of the toilets and the spiders overrunning the unit.

      The warden then told Jamie (who only has the use of one arm) to scrub down the walls, to which she refused! Jamie told him that her mother is posting the truth and would continue to post about the disgusting conditions of the unit and how it was making her sicker and more prone to infection, and that all of those years of mold would need more than scrubbing anyway. She told him if she was allowed to lay there and die that he hasn't seen anything yet and would never hear the last of her mother!

      The other women were awakened by the Warden and told to scrub the mold off of the walls and they also refused!
      They told the Warden that they were glad that everybody is finding out about their horrible living conditions and that the building needs to be torn down! No matter how the prison tries to hide it, the truth will continue to be told!

      One prison doctor has diagnosed Jamie with an infection and another has not, but she has the discoloration that is a hallmark of recurrent infection. She clarified that it was determined that she was only on Heparin while in the hospital and that it had been discontinued.

      PLEASE PARTICIPATE in e-mailing our press release to at least three press contacts as often as possible! It's at: http://www.scribd.com/doc/30178263/Sc...
      Many newspapers can be reached by e-mail or contact form at http://www.usnpl.com/ - please also contact other forms of media that you can easily find info for. We need a whole lot of help to attract as much attention to this case as possible to truly make a difference!

      Palestine Child Prisoners


      enfants



      In June 2009, Defence for Children International (DCI)/Palestine Section published a report titled, "Palestine Child Prisoners: The systematic and institutionalized ill-treatment and torture of Palestinian children by Israeli authorities."

      DCI/Palestine "is a national section of the international non-government child rights organisation and movement (dedicated) to promoting and protecting the rights of Palestinian children," according to international law principles.

      Each year, about 700 West Bank children, under 18, are arrested, detained, interrogated, and prosecuted in Israeli military courts, in total about 6,500 since 2000. DCI lawyers represent 30 - 40% of them. The report focuses on their torture and abuse in custody.

      Since the 1967 occupation, an estimated 700,000 Palestinian men, women, and children passed through Israel's judicial system, over 150,000 tried in military courts from 1990 - 2006, the remainder handled through plea bargains for lighter sentences. On average, over 9,000 Palestinians a year are affected, including 700 children treated the same as adults.

      For nearly 43 years, Israeli military justice operated "almost completely devoid of international scrutiny," giving authorities license to violate human rights and humanitarian law with impunity. As a result, due process and judicial fairness don't apply under a system denying them.

      Yet Article 37(b) of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) states:


      "The arrest, detention or imprisonment of a child...shall be used only as a measure of last resort and for the shortest appropriate period of time."

      In fact, Palestinian children are routinely arrested at checkpoints, on streets, going to or coming from school, tending olive groves, at play, and (most commonly) at home in the middle of the night, usually from midnight to 4AM with family members threatened not to intervene, beaten if they try, forced onto streets in their nightclothes, regardless of weather, and given no explanation.

      Typically, arrests are lawless and violent. Homes are broken into unannounced, property damaged or stolen, children blindfolded, shackled, and often beaten, then thrust into jeeps, sometimes face down, for transfer to interrogation and detention centers, a procedure that includes beatings, verbal abuse and other degrading and inhumane treatment.

      At detention centers, they're either placed in a cell or interrogated immediately. Usually no lawyer is present for days or weeks until questioning ends with a signed Hebrew confession few can read or understand. Once gotten, they're used against them in military courts, never mind that torture extracted evidence is inadmissible under international law.


      Article 15 of the UN Convention Against Torture states:


      "Each State Party shall ensure that any statement which is established to have been made as a result of torture shall not be invoked as evidence in any proceedings, except against a person accused of torture as evidence that the statement was made."

      In custody, children endure:

      -- blindfolding and painful shackling;
      -- beatings;
      -- violent shaking;
      -- sleep depravation;
      -- solitary confinement;
      -- other forms of sensory deprivation;
      -- no food and water for extended periods;
      -- poor quality or inedible food when gotten;
      -- no access to toilets, showers and clean clothes;
      -- exposure to extreme heat or cold;
      -- painful stress positions for extended periods;
      -- sexual abuse;
      -- threats, insults and cursing; and
      -- extremely loud noises.

      Often their parents and siblings are also arrested, beaten, detained, and their homes sometimes demolished.

      After interrogation, detainees are processed for trial, sentencing, and imprisonment by one of two West Bank military courts, both on military bases. Decisions may be appealed in the Military Court of Appeals, but rarely ever will the High Court of Justice hear them.

      Judges and prosecutors are military officers, some not certified by the Israeli Bar Association. Dispensing justice is nearly impossible under a system with no accepted standards. Children as young as 12 (and some younger) are prosecuted the same as adults, tribunals calling them adults at age 16, in contrast to Jews at age 18.

      Under Military Order 132, six months is the maximum sentence for children aged 12 - 13; 12 months usually from 14 - 15 for offenses with a maximum penalty of less than five years; and unlimited for more serious offenses; under Military Order 378, 20 years for stone-throwing is permitted (the most common offense charged); and children 16 or older are considered adults and treated no differently.

      Military courts deny judicial fairness, including:


      -- the right to counsel until forced confessions are extracted, commonly by torture, pressure, intimidation, and at times trickery;
      -- the right to prepare a proper defense with enough time, in adequate facilities, in confidence, with court documents in Arabic;
      -- under Military Order 378, detainees may be denied counsel for up to 90 days;
      -- under a grossly unjust system, attorneys commonly seek plea bargains to avoid trials and harsher sentences;
      -- defendants, including young children are presumed guilty, full acquittals gotten in just 0.29% of cases;

      -- the right to examine witnesses is restricted; few full evidentiary cases are heard; according to Yesh Din (volunteers for human rights), of 9,123 cases in 2006, only 130 (1.42%) got full evidentiary trials because having them is futile and punishments far harsher when convicted;
      -- unlike in civil courts for Jews, Palestinians have no right to trial without undue delay:


      (1) detention until a hearing before a judge - 24 hours for Jews; up to eight days for Palestinians;
      (2) total detention period before indictment - 30 days for Jews, and up to 75 on authority of the Attorney General; up to 180 days for Palestinians;
      (3) detention from end of investigation to indictment - 5 days for Jews; 10 days for Palestinians;
      (4) detention from indictment until arraignment - 30 days for Jews; up to two years for Palestinians;
      (5) detention from arraignment to end of proceedings - 9 months for Jews; up to two years for Palestinians; and
      (6) judicial approval of detention extensions if proceedings continue - 3 months for Jews (per a Supreme Court judge); six months for Palestinians (per Military Court of Appeals judge).

      In addition, defense lawyers rarely know charges until hearing days. Palestinian children are usually denied bail, and respect for their rights under international law is ignored.

      Fourth Geneva's Article 147 requires fair trials, holding those responsible for denying them criminally liable.

      Detention Conditions

      Children as young as 12, and sometimes younger, endure overcrowding, poor ventilation, little or no access to natural light, poor quality (often inedible) and inadequate amounts of food, isolation, torture and abusive treatment.

      Little or no education is provided, and none in interrogation and detention centers where children are often held for three months or longer. Also, with one exception, prisons are inside Israel in breach of Fourth Geneva's Article 76, stating:

      "Protected persons accused of offences shall be detained in the occupied country, and if convicted they shall serve their sentences therein."

      The provision also requires providing proper food, medical care, and spiritual help - women in separate quarters, supervised by women, and minors getting special treatment.

      Palestinian detainees get none of the above, including permits for family members to visit imprisoned relatives.

      Common Complaints

      From January 2001 - December 2008, "over 600 complaints were filed against Israeli Security Agency (ISA) interrogators for alleged ill-treatment and torture." The Police Investigation Department and Justice Ministry conducted no...

      Morkhoven Group: Solidarity with the Palestinian People

      SOLIDARITY WITH THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE

      The 'world' silence Israeli crimes because their financial, industrial and politic leaders are collaborating with the Israeli State. They are partners in crime. The Isreali leaders who are really gangsters, shut down water supply to the Palestinians, because they will break the resistance of the Palestinian people and the growing international movement which defends the Palestinian people.
      They use the same torture techniques and terrorist methods as the Belgian State which seeks to silence us about the child porn case Zandvoort.
      Marcel Vervloesem of our association was false accused. After a media campaign of 11 years, he has been imprisoned in 2008. The Zandvoort case was covered. He was 50 days in solitary confinement in prison and was chained during 591 hours at the operating table and his hospital bed. They wanted him dead and used him as a hostage to silence us and stop our actions. Marcel is seriously ill (cancer, heart disease, severe kidney problems, diabetes, he was more than 20 times in emergency surgery). The Belgian minister of Justice, the Belgian government, the Belgian media and the Belgian and European members of parliament are very well aware of this case.  Their silence should be seen as a little help for their friends who abused and tortured children.  All we can do is fight and keep fighting.
      I hope that the Palestinian people and the people who support them, continue their fight too.  The Israeli state should be fought on the same way as the South African apartheid system.  Fight and improve your actions! Find a solution for the lack of coordination!
