The 200.000-euro truncated information where intended to the Council of Europe...
In November 2001, Childfocus and its "European Centre for the Missing Children and Sexually Exploited", with the help of EEC funding, published the "Childoscope directory". It aimed at giving an overall picture on the fellow-member organisations in Europe, on the basis of information given by them in an "identification form".
Fifteen Belgian, Hungarian, Rumanian and English organisations, would have answered, making the same syntax and grammar mistake: - "We have contact with the parents by telephone, Meeting", though the identification form does not suggest any these answers.
The Daphne program which financed the copy/paste, will grant its author an extra 200.000-euro, to make a study requested by the Council of Europe, asking the Commission to have a study drawn up on the actual extent of the phenomenon of missing or sexually exploited children; the existence, role and structure of the civil society organisations in the Member States actively supporting their search and the legal issues arising from the involvement of such organisations. (ref: Resolution 2001/C 283/01 on the contribution of civil society in finding missing or sexually exploited children and Childfocus website: http://www.childfocus.be/fr/activities_3.php)
Since, Childoscope became a computerized form with check boxes, of which Childfocus has management and decides in all discretion, of which organisation can appear in it.
The information given to the Council of Europe remains truncated or false.
Four Rumanian organisations had been inscribed without their knowledge, though they did not meet the framework of the study. Childfocus has treated of "tabloid" the most famous of the Rumanian initiatives for the research of missing children, which seems justify that the Council of Europe be kept unaware of its existence.
Although Italy counts at least fifty civil organisations concerned by the study, the Council of Europe has only been advised of twelve of them, the most famous having been eliminated: Meter, directed by Father Fortunato di Noto, a national hero of the fight against the paedophilia in Italy.
Childfocus also assumed to have the right of hiding to the Council of Europe the organisations taking care of the most sensitive files in Belgium: the Zandvoort and Nihoul/Nigeria cases.
The email dated April 4, 2007 from Childfocus to the organisation "Troviamo i bambini", shows that the NGO spreads the rumour according to which, the association Werkgroep Morkhoven, who has exposed the Zandvoort case, would invent "assumed conspiracies and networks of paedophiles", whereas an Interpol report shows it counts 90.081 victims. In the same manner, the Foundation Princess of Croÿ, who has exposed the Nihoul/Nigeria case, would just spread a "systematic collection of rumours and assumed scandals", whereas it brings as proof medical certificates showing the traces of tortures on six of their victims.
Considering the gravity of the question, the light manner with which it has been treated, and the capital issue for the Council of Europe of being in a position to base its decisions on exact information, is not it a must that it gets a serious report on the questions asked in 2001, added of a studies:
On the facts constitutive of crime against humanity in the Zandvoort case and the measures to take on a European level to dismantle the network;
On the existence of gap in the law within the countries of the Union, witch favours the sexual exploitation of children, of which:
-The possibility to condemn the member of an organisation for "possession of child pornography", for the period during which he has seized the evidence from a paedophile criminal and given them to justice (REF: Vervloesem case in the Zandvoort file)
-The possibility for magazines aiming at young people to publish the names and addresses of minors of age, exposing them to paedophile criminals ("7 Extra" case)
On the existence of structures in each Member States, allowing all citizens to forward child pornography to the local authorities, without incurring the risk of legal proceedings;
On the existence, the role and the structure of the organisations resulting from the civil society within the Member States working actively and officially at the protection of paedophiles criminals, along with the arrangements for their involvement and cooperation with other organisations;
The reality and the extent of corruption from civil servants within the Member States in cases related the sexual exploitation of children;
On the existence of trusts of organisations that show an aim of child protection, who wilfully diffuses false information, with aim at harming other organisations, or bringing discredit on the testimonies of victims.
