European Parliament
To the attention of Mr. J.M. Gil-Robles Gil-Delgado
Chairman European Parliament
Belliardstreet 97-113, B-1047 Brussels

Dear Mister,

CONCERNING THE MANIFESTATION IN FRONT OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT IN BRUSSELS

As you know, the Workgroup Morkhoven is since years taking action around an international network of childporn. Hereby missing youngsters and children are also traced.

The actions and investigations of many years have finally led to the so called Zandvoort-case, whereby childporn-material was found in heaps. Although this work of the workgroup was generally praised and the investigator, Marcel Vervloesem, of the Workgroup Morkhoven was personally congratulated by the Chairman of the European Union, ( "Ich werde mich bemühen, auch weiterhin eine Politik zu machen, die entschlossene Menschen wie Sie, Herr Vervloesem, und deren engagierten Kampf für die Kinderrechte unterstützt", letter dated July 20th 1998.) the workgroup had to cope incessantly with opposition - since 1992 - on behalf of the Belgian Justice and Belgian political authorities.

The Workgroup Morkhoven not only became the victim of numerous insinuations and accusations but was also regulary critized by the Belgian Minister of Justice (Mr. S. De Clerck) for "the manner upon which the members of the workgroup spread rumours and tales full of phantasies". Following the Belgian Minister of Justice, the manner upon which the union handled these files was unacceptable and he had to offer resistance against this because it gave the impression that justice did not book any result."

The minister could not have summed-up this problem better to the heart of the matter. There was really never a serious search as to the solution of this problem.

Although, internationally, there was an agreement that the Workgroup Morkhoven did good work, the workgroup was never, in any way, supported by the Belgian Justice and political authorities.

Through the so called Zandvoort-case (after the murder of childpornmerchant Ullrich), Marcel Vervloesem was repeatedly the victim of insinuations and accusations.

After a TV-broadcast about the Zandvoort-case (RTBF Radio Television - "Faits Divers"), just after a press-conference of the workgroup and just before the TV-commentary about the Workgroup Morkhoven (VRT Radio Television - " The white knight of Morkhoven ") a judicial inquiry against Marcel Vervloesem of the Workgroup Morkhoven was opened.

There where - quite accidental - three burglaries of the car from Mr. José Dessart, maker of the before mentioned RTBF-broadcasting. Mr. Willibrordus, maker of the programm "The week of Willibrordus" (SBS 6-Netherlands), found his car put on fire just before the broadcasting of the Zandvoort-case. In danger of his own life, he could push the burning vehicle away from his house (where his small daughter was asleep) into the street to prevent his house catching fire.

Gina Bernard-Pardaens, internet-specialist of the Workgroup Morkhoven and co-worker of the RTBF-programme "Faits Divers" had to deal for months on end with telephone-disturbances, fax- and computer-problems. The telephone-company Belgacom did not succeed during all that time to resolve these interferences.
According to Belgacom "a second line was opened (which Gina never had asked ) and there was "a small thread loose".
Gina often had an "occupied line" (while she was not at home), with people phoning her, but saying nothing and hooking back in, deaththreats and telephone-voices which where electronicly deformed, and so on ..., but Belgacom did not appear to be able to detect the identity of these anonymous callers.
Next, the son of Gina Bernard - after different deaththreats - was almost ridden off the road, whilst on bicycle.

Both Mr. José Dessart (RTBF) and Mrs. Gina Bernard were interrogated by the judicial department in the case of the disappearred German boy, Manuel Schadwald.
Over and over they were asked as to their connections with the Workgroup Morkhoven.

In an interview with a journalist of the newspaper "De Morgen", Gina Bernard stated that she had experienced the interrogation as "highly remarkable and even intimidating" and "that this hearing was clearly directed in that way to be able to get hold of her sources where she had access to".

After this interrogation the intimidating towards her seemed to increase. In the night of November 14/15th, 1998, Gina -after a new series of deaththreats and telephone-, fax- and internet-problems, had a carcrash. She was instantly dead.

Then, the Workgroup Morkhoven, decided that it could not go on this way. The network-investigations and the tracing of missing children would be stopped and the complete file would -together with the numerous requests from parents of missing children- be put at the door of the European Parliament, in Brussels.

However, the Workgroup did get so many positive reactions and requests to continue, that she will pick up her activities in the matter concerned. This, however, can't happen without the necessary guarantees. It no longer can be so that every person and every union, who works around the problematic of missing and/or murdered children or around the international pedophile-networks and sexual abused youngsters and children, becomes the victim of a systematic persecution.

We ask the members of the European Parliament that the policeforces and judges who do their investigations well, the journalists and civil servants who try to do their work as good as possible, the solicitors, physicians ... who come up for the victims of sexual abuse, the parents of missing/murdered children, unions who do thorough investigation-work and the victims of sexual abuse, are respected instead of being intimidated or persecuted.

To obtain this goal, Mister Chairman, I would like to inform you that the town of Brussels has given us permission to organise a manifestation on Thursday, December 10th, 1998, from 14.00 untill 16.00 o'clock, in the Van Maerlantstraat, on the opposite side of the European Parliament, Belliardstreet 97, Brussels.

In the hope that a delegation of the participants could be received by you and thereby hand you over their request, we abide your answer,

Sincerely Yours,

Jan Boeykens
Verlatstraat 13, 2000 Antwerp (Belgium)
Chairman of the Workgroup Morkhoven


The Zandvoort case was never investigated by Belgian justice.

On September 5th, 2008, Marcel Vervloesem, activist of the Workgroup Morkhoven, was emprisonned after 10 years of false accusations and persecutions. He was sentenced to four years of prison for crimes which medicine recognizes he is physically unable to carry out.

Marcel Vervloesem is becoming blind, as a consequence of a hunger and thirst strike, to request the respect of his constitutional rights.

The priority of the government is to get Belgium rid of man who exposed corruption covering the industry of children's sexual exploitation.
