THE HELRIC #FREDOU AFFAIR AND SYRIAN CONNECTION

image

A forgotten victim of the recent atrocities in France was a man who devoted his life to law enforcement and the pursuit of justice. Whether he ended his life by his own hand as a tragic consequence of depression that can be attributed to unknown circumstances does not take away the years of dedicated service to his country and the contributions which he made to the endeavor of a just society.  The facts and circumstances surrounding his death are worthy of critical examination in hopes of preventing future losses.

Helric Fredou was a veteran officer (OCJ) of the Judicial Police a component of France’s National Police since 1997. His untimely demise was January 8, 2015 recorded as approximately 0100 hours Thursday morning. It remains unclear as to the time his lifeless body was first discovered, what has been revealed through public sources is his next of kin was first notified at around 0500 hours.
Assuming this notification was done in a timely manner consistent with standard investigative protocols when a fellow officer has fallen, this would place the discovery within one hour or 0400 hours.
According to subsequent interviews Commissioner Fredou recieved a telephone call at his domicile wherupon he left soon therafter, arriving at his office around 11:25 on the evening of the massacre. (Wednesday 7, January) At that time there was mobilized over 88,000 law enforcement and soldiers involved in a nation wide man-hunt for two very dangerous armed killers. After meeting with his team and receiving the latest updates on progress he entered his office purportedly to begin a report.
Although unspecified in news accounts we may assume that a law enforcement professional (colleague) first entered the crime scene.  France is a country reknown for criminalistic skills and the National Police are among the worlds finest.  For that reason it is unlikely that anyone would have processed the crime scene with a predetermined assumption. Commissioner Fredou was clearly dead with no reason to apply first-aid and no reason to summon a medical ambulance. Also there would be no reason to investigate with any dileniation from a homicide at that point.
The reconstructed time frame would indicate that forensic photography probably would have started their time consuming duties after arrival and set-up no earlier than 0500 hours. Forensic photography has come along ways since a French investigator by the name of Bertillion first pioneered it. It is a rigid scientific discipline requiring years of study. Keep in mind that at this point the investigation is identical to that of a homicide. A National Police Commissioner found dead while armed killers are on the loose! In addition to hundreds of photographs the bullet which passed through his skull would have to be found and tested to determine whether in fact it was discharged from the Sig-Sauer service weapon found near Helrics body. It is likely to have taken hours to complete the processing of the crime scene. While that was happening investigators were dispatched to the Commissioners domicile to obtain his personal computer, cell-phone and other items to aid in the investigation. Because of the nature of the death from apparent gun-shot wound to the cranium entrance forehead, the deceadants hands would be tied off in air tight bags to preserve possible gunshot residues before placement in a body bag and ready for transport to a facility where the autopsy could be performed. Reconstructed time frame would be around 0800 transport time. Assuming that a full forensic autopsy would be performed and toxicology tests done to determine whether chemical substances played a role or whether Commissioner Fredou had any physical ailments causing severe pain as a possible contributing factor, quite possibly 6 hours, which would bring us to 1600 hours. The determination of suicide is made by analysis from a combination of autopsy findings and investigative evidence.
The first public television news broadcast of Commissioner Fredous announced suicide was at 11:24; a subsequent public notification was made at 12:09 in a regional newspaper. Helrics next of kin were not allowed to view his body until late afternoon. The decision to rubberstamp suicide as cause of death whether than wait for completion of the process is apparent. One regional newspaper alluded to a previous suicide in Nov. 2013 that the Commissioner himself had discovered of a colleague in an apparent attempt to show a corollary or maybe as if suicide is an infection. The same newspaper reported that Helric was depressed and burned out evidenced by the fact that his superiors had requested that he turn in his service hand-gun. Also reported on various sites was that Helric was in charge of the Hebdo investigation. The command and control of French law enforcement is complex with overlapping jurisdictional authorities, the Gendarmerie falls under direct control of the Interior Minister although still retaining its designation as a military force structure. Within that Group there is RAID, and Paris Perfecture also is under direct control of the Interior Ministry so clearly Helric was not in overall command of the nationwide investigation. Perhaps there was a turf war which would explain the friction that was reported concerning the telephone call Fredou answered on that fateful night. Helric was well aquainted with the Interior Minister who is also mayor of Cherbourg where Helric was posted during his career. (2010-2012)
The statement released to the press of Fredous death would have to have been approved from the Office of the Interior Ministry. The investigative officers and pathologist would have been informed publicly that the state viewed the death as a suicide, rendering the investigation as open to criticism concerning a predetermined finding.
In the morning of 8 January 2015 around 0800 hours, yet another French police officer was killed. Clarissa Jean-Philippe age 26 was gunned down in Montrouge, a suburb   just two and a half miles from downtown Paris, while on call to a vehicular accident. Information and details were still incoming at 11:24 the time Fredous death was announced. For its part mainstream news failed to render any accounts of the Commissioners death until days later when it emerged. The press conferences (2) held by the Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve, on 8, January did not make mention of Helrics name or fate.
Perhaps it is the open and shut manner of this investigation which has helped give rise to charges of governmental complicity from Jean-Marie Le Pen who in an interview suggested that the Hebdo murders bore the signature of the secret services. While dismissed by poliical opponents with the typical conspiracy theory label, state interests are clearly being advanced from the crisis. Within days Jews were being asked to resettle in occupied Palestine as a continuation of The One Million Plan, indeed 10,000 French citizens are expected to heed this call in 2015 as France is being portrayed as a hostile and dangerous enviroment for those of the Jewish faith. Those in France who look upon the cartoon charactarization depicted in the Hebdo magazine of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) as neither praisworthy nor commendable are being marginalized and their patriotism questioned. Being anti-Islam is now politically correct in France as well as the western world. The reality of current documented events and the aftermath had they been foretold also could easily have been dismissed as conspiracy theories and ignored; and were.
The government of France policy of arming a fantasy group of insurgents who will topple the Syrian government and bring a land flowing with milk and honey is itself a ridiculous and absurd conspiracy theory, based on wishful thinking and a strong dose of delusion. A reality check might include the current state of affairs in Libya and Iraq.

For years Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and members of his secular government have been warning the western world of the dangers of fueling the takfiri extremists in their quest to reestablish colonial control over the ME. These warnings and appeals to the West to abide by international law were and are ignored. Rather than restrict and impede the flow of French radicalized extremists, the French government supports them. This newly created narrative of free speech being the cause of consequences from years of failed policy is being used and exploited for short sighted political gain and obsfusication purposes. It certainly is not a conspiracy theory at all that French secret services have combined to arm those whom the French government now claim to fight. The strategy by the west of igniting sectarian war in Syria has failed, the people of Syria see themselves first as Syrian whether Moslem Sunni, Shia or Orthodox Christian thereby setting an example to France on how to peacefully coexist.
In conclusion it should be noted that the two Couachi brothers had lived for years in the Limoges area which was within Commissioner Fredous jurisdiction and that they had been placed under watch which also would have been known to Helric.

image

Although the official story suggests that the authorities lost track of the now dead brothers maybe there was evidence to show that there was still current info in their files which showed otherwise. As far as the report which Fredou was preparing, it disappeared and there was no suicide note.
Even now because of a clamp down on information about Fredous’ death in France most of those protesting for free speech dont realize the censorship imposed on them by those who march under it’s banner.
The Fredou Affair calls into question the duplicitous and schitzophrenic nature of Western nations foreign policies viz a vis the Middle East. Conflicts of interest and turf wars are the result. Domestic law enforcement agencies are increasingly being throttled and impeded by their own nations secret services who maintain a supportive role of radical extremists who are viewed and used as useful idiots. Had the Couachi brothers caused murder and mayhem in Syria, it is likely the western press would have presented them as rebels and their acts as strikes thus sanctioning what they condemn within their own borders.

Moscow calls on OSCE to be responsible for probe into crimes in Ukraine

Moscow calls on OSCE to be responsible for probe into crimes in Ukraine – Russian diplomat
POSTED
Russia  October 11, 14:32 UTC+4
“All the parties should observe the Minsk agreements, fixed in the Protocol of September 5 and Memorandum of September 19”, Russia’s Ambassador to OSCE Andrei Kelin said

Donetsk region© TASS
MOSCOW, October 11. /TASS/. Moscow is calling on the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to undertake responsibility for investigations in crimes committed in Ukraine, and not just to observe what Kiev is doing or not for that, Russia’s Ambassador to OSCE told a meeting of Organisation’s Permanent Council on Saturday.
The shelling is less intensive, “but it continues.”
“Civilians are being killed in Donetsk, Lugansk, Gorlovka, in other cities and villages in Ukraine’s east,” he said.
“This grave violation of the international humanitarian law should be stopped.”
“The amount of crimes is increasing,” the diplomat continued. “This is also mentioned in the latest report of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. Some provisions of the report reflect the alarming situation in that country.”
“Those are first of all the proofs of mass violations of the international humanitarian law and the human rights by Ukrainian military and the many battalions like Aidar, Azov, Dnepr, Kiev-1 and Kiev-2.”
“Those are of killings, torture, kidnapping, arbitrary detention, sexual violence and other serious crimes,” he said. “UN observers report the growing numbers of killed civilians, including children, in the non-selective shelling the Ukrainian military deliver on houses.”
The reports points to no results of probes into the mass killing in Maidan (Kiev’s Independence Square), in Odessa and Mariupol, to victims in the crash of Malaysia’s Boeing.
“Despite the measures Kiev is declaring, there are still no results of independent investigations,” he said. “Moreover, the document reads the Ukrainian investigators have been falsifying or destroying the proofs – first of all the bullets used in the clashes in Maidan.”
Russia hopes next reports “will reflect new evidences of the crimes committed by the Ukrainian military, including information about mass graves of civilians found in the Donetsk region.”
The ambassador pointed to the problems with the exchange of detained persons.
“Unacceptable are the attempts to hide proofs of inhuman treating prisoners, to “get” the required numbers of people to be exchanged by organising new arrests on suspicion of “sympathy for separatists”.”
“It is important that international organisations, including OSCE, are not only observing what the Ukrainian authorities are doing or not doing, but undertake responsibility for impartial and just investigations,” the Russian diplomat said. “It is already high time to stop accusing of everything the militia and to be excusing the Ukrainian law enforcers at the same time.”
Also Kelin said, that supporting Kiev’s “party of war” is a way to catastrophe, past visits of the U.S. emissaries were followed by escalation of violence, by active punitive operations. We hope, this time Washington’s instructions are aimed at support of the peace process
“The major task now is to favour by all possible means stopping violence in Ukraine,” he said. “All the parties should observe the Minsk agreements, fixed in the Protocol of September 5 and Memorandum of September 19.”
“This is a base for transition for the national, open dialogue featuring all regions and political forces,” he said. “By only reaching national peace could be possible firm stable situation in Ukraine.”
Any calls for resuming the military operation, especially on the eve of the upcoming parliamentary elections, support in any form of the “party of war” are ways to catastrophe, the ambassador said.
“We could not leave unnoticed the meetings in Kiev (of the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State) Victoria Nuland. Past visits of American emissaries to Ukraine, as a rule, were followed by escalation of violence, by active punitive operations. We hope, this time Washington’s instructions are aimed at support of the peace process.”
The alarming events in Ukraine, he said, “are on the background of the endless anti-Russian hysteria.”
“We have seen clearly, this line has been supported actively and even inspired from the outside,” he said. “All factors, which are inconvenient for Kiev, are announced “Russian propaganda”.”
Moscow reiterates the call “for directing efforts on support of peace processes in Ukraine.”
“Ceasefire in the country’s east should be irreversible,” the diplomat said. “It is the key precondition for stable settlement, for development of the Ukrainian national dialogue, for national peace.
Moscow is alarmed at statements from some Ukrainian officials, claiming following the lustration may come political murders.
“Punishers of the Azov battalion, who are declaring openly their Nazi views and are using Nazi symbols, now are in the avant-garde of “fighting monuments”,” he said.
“Now desecrated is the monument to victims of the Holocaust in Odessa. Odessa’s Jewish community reports extremists have beaten up over 20 Jews last month.”
“Attacked and beaten up severely was MP Nestor Schufrich. Nationalists throw into waste bins officials and candidates for parliament deputies.”
“Those must be the democratic inventions of the Ukrainian extremists, which, in their opinion, fit well the high “European standards”,” he said.
“Alarming is that some officials [Igor Kolomoisky’s assistant Boris Filatov] have declared already that following the “waste bin lustration” will come the time of political murders,” the Russian ambassador said.
“Extremely alarming are the methods Ukraine’s Security Service is using jointly with radical groups in fighting dissent (the UN report mentions 1,000 detained on charges of “subversive activities.”).”
There is a clear tendency radical elements, including activists of punitive battalions, are getting to the power by means of participating in the parliamentary elections, the Russian diplomat said.

The proposal of Ukrainian president to build fortifications on the border with Russia akin to the Mannerheim Line

The proposal of Ukrainian president to build fortifications on the border with Russia akin to the Mannerheim Line is an odious manifestation, Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko says POSTED

September 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Speaker of the Russian Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko said that the proposal of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to build fortifications on the border with Russia akin to the Mannerheim Line is an act of savagery.
Mannerheim Line was a defensive fortification line dividing Finland, that became independent from the Bolshevik Russia in 1918, and the Soviet Union in the first half of the 20th century.

“I can say that this step is a very odious, half-baked, unprofessional, and populist manifestation,” Matviyenko told reporters on Thursday.
“In the 21st century, when the borders are being wiped off, when more and more countries sign agreements on visa-free travel, on free movements within the framework of globalization processes, the idea to dig up a pit and to build a wall sounds like savagery for me,” she said. “They say we should build bridges rather than build a wall or dig up a pit,” she said.

Matviyenko expressed the confidence that the current situation is “temporary and will pass.” “Noone will be able to divide (Russians and Ukrainians),” she said.
Matviyenko said that year in year three million Ukrainians worked in Russia, while 800,000 had been forced to flee the conflict-gripped Ukraine’s south-east into Russia.

“The aid to Serbia is organized by the Russian Ministry of Defense,” the source told RIA Novosti.

Serbia is to be given two five-ton power generators, 10 high-capacity pumps, 10 mobile water tanks, 200 medium-volume thermoses and 50 large-volume ones.

In May, Serbia suffered from disastrous floods caused by continuous rain. Rivers have overflowed their banks and flooded vast areas of land. The disaster has killed 33 people, while another 32,000 have been moved away from the flooded areas. While the Serbian government has collected $15.8 million in donations, total damage from the floods is estimated at $1.9 billion.

Russian rescuers were in Serbia on May 16-26, evacuating around 3,000 people, including over 600 children.

ISIL IN IRAQ SEIZES TURKISH CONSULATE

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iranian Foreign Ministry condemned and voiced concern over the seizure of the Turkish Consulate Office in the Northern Iraqi city of Mosul and abduction of its staff by ISIL terrorists.

Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham in a statement on Wednesday asked for respecting the diplomatic immunity of the diplomatic centers and their staffs.

She also called for the attention of the international society to the negative aftermaths of certain governments’ support for such terrorist groups and the role they are playing in destabilizing the region, which will eventually lead to the loss of the whole region, and even the international peace and stability.

Afkham also voiced the Islamic Republic of Iran’s resolute support for the Iraqi government and people in their campaign against terrorism.

She asked for preservation of the Iraqi nation’s unity and solidarity in confrontation with those terrorist attacks, and expressed the hope that relying on national unity, peace and stability will be reestablished in Iraq as soon as possible.

Militants seized the Turkish consulate in the Northern Iraqi city of Mosul and efforts are under way to ensure the safety of diplomatic staff, two Turkish government sources said on Wednesday.

Terrorists from an Al-Qaeda splinter group, the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), seized Mosul on Tuesday.

Turkey has promised to retaliate if any of its citizens are harmed in Iraq, after 49 members of the Turkish consulate in Mosul were abducted by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

The Turkish government said on Wednesday that diplomats, staff, security guards and three children were held by ISIL fighters and efforts were being made to ensure their release.

It brings to 80 the number of Turkish citizens being held by ISIL. On Tuesday, the group abducted 31 Turkish lorry drivers as it took control of Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city.
“ISIL members managed to kidnap the Turkish consul,” an unnamed Iraqi police colonel told the AFP news agency, adding that an ISIL fighter had told him those held were “safe” and would be moved to a “safer place”.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish prime minister, held an emergency meeting with security and military officers to discuss the response to the raid, Turkish media reported.
