Fact: The Trust established its main organization, Pentru Copiii Nostri, in Bucharest. The mayor of Bucharest during this time (1997) has since been a suspected participant of the city's prostitution rings.
Trust Activities: "The operational arm of the trust is Pentru Copiii Nostri (For Our Children). The Trust also supports programs implemented by the County Councils of [insert 7 counties here, including Bucharest's], and the National Committee for the Protection of Children and the National Adoption Committee." (annual report)
Government/Mafia activities: "According to the tabloid press, Viorel Lis is suspected to be part of a network of prostitution, in one of its apartments being found more women practicing the oldest profession."
Government: One transport minister resigns for what I perceive was coming too close to the truth and pissing off the establishment (this article jumps in time to 2015, which is when the UK opened its borders to a vast inflow of Romanian refugees. Assuming the premise that the UK and other Western countries created the mafia responsible for child trafficking, the ones picked for immigration were very likely the selected criminals of the country for business expansion: "Romanian transport minister Ioan Rus was forced to quit after he said men working abroad could earn 1,000 pound sterling a month, which would "turn children back home into thugs and wives into whores."
Fact: The Trust misallocated money to send government officials on lavish trips... to Italy. Reporters indicate the mafia head (who went to Italy as well) had to bribe officials frequently.
Trust Activities: "She [former Trust worker] alleges she was asked to arrange a holiday in Italy for a local councillor in return for help setting up projects in Romania." In addition, "There were lots of illegal financial transactions and they spent a lot of money on parties, on gifts."
Mafia/Government: "But the full story of the Camataru brothers is lined with tales of how they've wormed their way out of prison and bribed officials." [in 2004] "They were convicted in the first court instance, but there was no new trial. The case documents had been stolen from the court building and disappeared. The brothers had escaped a prison sentence once again."
Fact: Employees tried warning the Charity Commission and government authorities about the Trust's activities with no effect. The mafia states that the government is a criminal enterprise.
Trust Activities: "... the Commission admitted last week its 'evaluation' in 1997 of a 15-page dossier provided by the British childcare specialist Georgette Mulheir - amounted to a meeting with the charity without any further investigation." (ie, she tried reporting them to zero effect).
Mafia Activities: "The political organization in Romania is the real face of organized crime. You live in a Democratic country so you don't know what things are like here. Here, you need contacts and if you don't pay, you don't survive."
Analysis: The guy got deposed from his throne for reasons unbeknownst to me (he says earlier in the article that he lost a turf war), which is why he's being prosecuted. Now he's pointing fingers. He's not wrong, but he's likely no saint, either.
Fact: The previous head of the mafia on trial for forced prostitution used the alibi of innocence by claiming he was "involved with charity" and mentions kids.
Mafia Activities: "Papacostea has been representing the brothers since 2013. He doesn't try to explain the criminal past of the Camataru clan--he categorically denies it. Instead of crime, clan leader Ion Balint has been involved in charity work, according to Papacostea. "Everybody loves him! He does a lot for charity. There are people who come to him asking for money for their children who need emergency operations."
Fact: The CARITAS charity scheme that ripped off $1.5-5 billion in aid money and citizen deposits--all in the name of "charity" and "building homes for children"--was first devised where?... In Italy.
In fact, today it's listed as a subsidiary of sorts to the mother-fucking- Vatican, complete with a username/password protected page. (look to "Council Vatican II documents")
"About the establishment of Caritas, Helene said that John [Ioan] Stoica said nothing. "I had a friend with whom he consulted, he developed a pyramid scheme in Brasov. But the original idea came from Stoica in Italy, where he stayed for a while, there he had heard of a Ponzi scheme and thought that was going to work here."
Fact: The 1998 return of the European Children's Trust showed the formation of a relationship with Barnardo's. This partner organization already had a history of sexually abusing children and sending them abroad to awaiting pedophiles.
Trust: The Trust formed a strong relationship with Barnardos this year, whereby they provide our programmes with expertise from their architects department.
Barnardo's: "Some were from broken homes or simply placed in care by their parents until they could get back on their feet. Mothers were frequently told that their children were being adopted in Britain...in reality, they were often used as slave labor and endured physical and sexual abuse... [and] suggested that the child migrants who alleged sexual abuse were already sexually active when they arrived in Australia because they were products of British child care institutions.
Fact: The Romanian Orphanage Trust's officer was also with Tavistock Institute of Human Relations (became Tavistock Portman Clinic). They specialize in "infant observation" and "attachment theory." In Scotland, police uncovered videos of infants in Romania's Save the Children being subjected to masochism, neglect, and extreme sensory deprivation.
Trust: Trust: Per the Trust's name change paperwork in 1996, John Margarson is a company officer who sat as secretary on the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations. The paperwork for the Romanian Orphanage Childrent's Trust was to be sent to his address.
Save the Children: "Sohail Ayaz, a leading member of an international child abuse network, came to the UK on a two-year visa after molesting and photographing a 14-year-old boy. He got a job at Save the Children headquarters in London. Ayaz... is wanted in Italy in connection with a Romanian child sex ring. A search of his home...recovered images of thousands of children being abused. Some depicted 6-month-old babies, and several fell into the most serious, level 5 category, showing "distressed" youngsters struggling against sensory deprivation,' as they were "tied up, blindfolded, suspended" and subjected to sadomasochistic acts."
Tavistock Portman Clinic: "Our commitment to developing new knowledge, methods, and techniques through research and clinical innovation has continued to influence the evidence base and clinical practice. In some cases this influence has been international including: Attachment theory; systemic family therapy; child, adult and forensic psychotherapy; infant observation; organizational and group dynamics; the developmental origins of mental health difficulties. The Tavistock Institute also has what's called the "Tavistock Method of Infant Observation." In the book is a study from 1992 called, "Disorganized/Disoriented infant behaviour in the Strange Situation: lapses in the monitoring of reason and discourse during the parents' Adult Attachment Interview and Disassociated States." I wonder if the methodology was similar to what these babies went through.
Note: Sensory deprivation and this level of torture is what Tavistock's subsidiary, RAND corporation, did as part of its CIA-backed MK Ultra program decades ago. This work is still being done today, but on kids in orphanages where getting caught is less likely. Tavistock's sister org, APA, also did studies on child neglect...researched in Romania. The CEO of Rand, Michael Rich, sits on board of EveryChild presently. Read what this Voat user wrote about their experience and a lot of it overlaps with what's going on with these Romanian babies whose torture was being recorded by Save the Children employees.
