1. Abel Danger (AD) claims that the EU has developed a bank of child pornography for use in blackmailing leaders of its member states whose victims – including Madeleine McCann – are selected, kidnapped, degraded and murdered in the EU snuff-film trade.
2. AD claims that Serco‘s commanders of the Offenders Tag Association used an 8(a) onion router (Tor) network to coordinate the kidnapping of Madeleine McCann on 3 May 2007 from Praia da Luz in Portugal and her delivery to the EU kiddie-porn bank in Brussels.
3. AD claims that the former patent lawyer Hillary Clinton used a Tor server operated by a Serco 8(a) company to monitor the prospective EU whistle-blower Jo Cox and authorize her murder with a weapon allegedly smuggled to the killer by the same Leicester police force which tried to frame Madeleine’s McCann’s parents for the murder of their daughter.
4. United States Marine Field McConnell invites James Comey – FBI director and former director of Serco‘s drug-hub banker HSBC – to investigate the role of Serco‘s commanders and tagged offenders in the EU child pornography trade and murder of Clinton’s enemies (https://abeldanger.blogspot.com/2010/01/field-mcconnell-bio.html).

“British police helped build case against McCanns
Dec 14, 2010
Robin Henry WikiLeaks cable reveals British police helped Portuguese create Maddy cover-up allegation Although Portuguese police were always blamed by Kate and Gerry McCannfor suggesting they were somehow involved in a cover-up over the disappearance of their daughter, Madeleine McCann, it now transpires that British police helped their opposite numbers on the Algarve build the case against the couple.
In the months following Madeleine’s disappearance in May 2007, the Portuguese police were branded “imbeciles” by furious relatives of the McCanns, who later threatened to take legal action against the force after they were cleared.
A cable detailing a meeting between the British ambassador to Lisbon, Alexander Wykeham Ellis, and US ambassador Al Hoffman, two weeks after the couple were declared arguidos in September 2007, is published today by the Guardian.
“Without delving into the details of the case, Ellis admitted that the British police had developed the current evidence against the McCann parents, and he stressed that authorities from both countries were working cooperatively,” Hoffman said in the confidential report back to Washington.
Ellis also urged Hoffman to keep any comments regarding the case “behind closed doors”.
The cable sheds new light on the fraught months following the disappearance of Madeleine from a holiday apartment in the Algarve resort of Praia da Luz.
At the time, the McCanns claimed that Portuguese police were turning their focus on them to protect the region’s tourism and deflect attention away from their failure to find the three-year-old.
The couple were monitored and questioned by investigators, who believed that they had discovered sufficient forensic evidence to suggest that Maddy had died in their apartment, before being stowed away in a hire car.
The case against the parents was finally dropped in July 2008 and their daughter’s disappearance remains a mystery.
A spokesman for the McCanns played down the significance of the WikiLeaks revelations, telling the Guardian: “This is an entirely historic note that is more than three years old… Subsequently, Kate and Gerry had their arguido status lifted, with the Portuguese authorities making it perfectly clear that there was absolutely no evidence to implicate them in Madeleine’s disappearance whatsoever.”
Dozens of British police officers and forensic specialists were drafted in after Maddy’s disappearance, but it is still not clear exactly what role they played.
A spokesman for the Leicester police, in the McCanns’ home county, told the Guardian they simply coordinated the Portuguese investigation on a local level.”
The revelation that police in Britain “developed the evidence” that led to the McCanns being treated as formal suspect – or arguidos – comes with the latest leak of US embassy cables by WikiLeaks.”
“Al Hoffman, Jr. is an American real estate developer and a former Ambassador to Portugal.
Hoffman was raised on the south side of Chicago, the youngest of seven children. His father, a Jewish Austrian, emigrated to the United States in 1906 and opened a poultry store, while his mother was a Scottish-American immigrant who grew up in Kentucky. Hoffman graduated from Morgan Park Military Academy in 1952, and was accepted to the United States Military Academy that same year. He became a captain in the Air Force, where Hoffman flew F-100s. Instead of continuing his career in the air force, Hoffman attended Harvard Business School, where he became interested in real estate development.”
“In 1981 writer Tom Stacey took to the British Home Office a proposal for the electronic tagging of offenders to track their movements, or fix a home curfew, using cellular radio telephone technology. Stacey had been briefly imprisoned abroad in his former role as a foreign correspondent and had for several years served as a Prison Visitor in England.
He followed his presentation to the Home Office with a letter to The Times (published 6 October 1982) outlining the proposal and his immediate formation of the Offender’s Tag Association, composed of electronic scientists, penologists and prominent citizens. The term ‘tagging’ thus entered the vocabulary in the penal context. In March 1983 the Offender’s Tag Association held a national press conference. Later that year, a district court judge, Jack Love, persuaded Michael Goss, a computer salesperson, to develop a system to monitor five offenders in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Judge Love was supposedly inspired to act based upon a storyline in a Spider-Man comic, specifically the newspaper comic strip version where the Kingpin puts an electronic bracelet on the superhero primarily to follow his movements. This was probably the first court-sanctioned use of electronic monitoring.”
“The word is variously derived from the word for tribute (in modern terms, protection racket) paid by English and Scottish border dwellers to Border Reivers in return for immunity from raids and other harassment. The “mail” part of blackmail derives from Middle English male, “rent, tribute.” This tribute was paid in goods or labour (reditus nigri, or “blackmail”); the opposite is blanche firmes or reditus albi, or “white rent” (denoting payment by silver).
Alternatively, Mckay derives it from two Scottish Gaelic words blathaich pronounced (the th silent) bla-ich (to protect) and mal (tribute, payment). He notes that the practice was common in the Highlands of Scotland as well as the Borders. In Irish Gaelic, the term cíos dubh, meaning “black-rent” has also been employed.”
“Madeleine Beth McCann (born 12 May 2003) disappeared on the evening of 3 May 2007 from her bed in a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, a resort in the Algarve region of Portugal, sparking what one newspaper called “the most heavily reported missing-person case in modern history.” Her whereabouts remain unknown. Madeleine was on holiday from the UK with her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, her younger twin siblings, and a group of family friends and their children. She and the twins had been left asleep at 20:30 in the ground-floor apartment, while the McCanns and friends dined in a restaurant 50 metres (160 ft) away. The parents checked on the children throughout the evening, until Madeleine’s mother discovered she was missing at 22:00. At first the Portuguese police seemed to accept that it was an abduction, but after misinterpreting a British DNA analysis they came to believe that Madeleine had died in the apartment.[n 1]The McCanns were declared arguidos (suspects) in September 2007 but were cleared when Portugal’s attorney-general archived the case in July 2008.
The parents continued the investigation using private detectives until Scotland Yard opened its own inquiry, Operation Grange, in 2011. In 2013 Scotland Yard released e-fit images of men they wanted to trace, including one of a man seen carrying a child toward the beach that night. Shortly after this the Portuguese police reopened their inquiry. Operation Grange was scaled back in 2015. The disappearance attracted sustained international interest and saturation coverage in the UK reminiscent of the death of Diana in 1997.
The McCanns were subjected to intense scrutiny and false allegations of involvement in their daughter’s death, particularly in the tabloid press and on Twitter. They received damages and front-page apologies in 2008 from Express Newspapers, In 2011 they testified before the Leveson Inquiry into British press misconduct, lending support to those arguing for tighter press regulation.”

Did Jose Manuel Barroso ordered the kidnapping of Madeleine McCann?
Is Madeleine McCann being held captive by orders of Jose Manuel Barroso? An important journalistic information breakthrough on the case of missing Madeleine McCann was made with revelations published by the Christopher Story intelligence publication, following the receipt of death-threats after releasing names of individuals. According to the information, behind the abduction of Madeleine McCann is a shadowy and dangerous criminal organisation known as the Deutsche Verteidigungs Dienst [DVD] from Germany with presence at the European Commission headquarters in Brussels. Christopher Story told readers that DVD has been extensively involved in paedophile child abduction criminal operations for many years, both in Europe and abroad. Selected children are kidnapped, degraded for extremely evil and perverse purposes, filmed and eventually murdered in the production of snuff films for the lucrative international child pornography trade. Elite and officialdom members in several countries, including Portugal, are either “clients” and/or agents of the DVD infiltrated in the social structure of the countries in which they operate. Christopher Story reported also that on August 7, 2008 detective John Shord from the Metropolitan Police of London confirmed that Madeleine McCann was kidnapped on orders by a member of the European Commission, through a paedophile organisation in Belgium but controlled by the Nazi deep-rooted DVD based in Germany….. http://the-elite-and-child-abduction.blogspot.ca/2009/10/jose-manuel-barroso-ordered-kidnapping.html”

“Government still paying G4S and Serco millions for tagging despite ban
Two firms which faced criminal investigations over alleged overcharging received £13.2m between them after losing contract, analysis shows.

The Ministry of Justice is still paying security firms G4S and Serco millions of pounds every month for supplying electronic tagging equipment, more than a year after both companies were barred from running the contract.
Both companies faced criminal investigations by the Serious Fraud Office over allegations of overcharging that led to them repaying nearly £180m.
The continuing monthly payments to the two companies were uncovered by an analysis of Ministry of Justice (MoJ) data by the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies which shows that G4S was paid a total of £8.7m between March 2014 – when it lost the tagging contract – and February 2015. Serco was paid £4.5m over the same period.
The electronic monitoring tags are used to enforce curfews on more than 100,000 offenders each year. The outsourcing giant Capita took over the contract on an interim basis in April last year. In July 2014, Capita and three other companies were named as the winners of a £265m six-year contract to supply the next generation of satellite tracking tags, which would allow dangerous and repeat offenders to be monitored around the clock.
The MoJ agreed that Capita should continue to use the older G4S/Serco tagging equipment until the first satellite tracking tags were due to come into use by the end of last year.
But there have been continued delays in the development of the satellite tracking tags and the contracts with G4S and Serco to use their equipment have been extended. The Guardian understands that they were given a 15-month extension earlier this year with a further extension possible when that expires in 2016.
Richard Garside of the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies said: “The ministry is continuing to pay G4S and Serco for the supply of electronic tagging equipment months after the contracts should have been terminated, because the timetable for the next generation of satellite tagging technology has slipped and slipped.
“The ministry needs to clarify, as soon as possible, when payments to G4S and Serco will end.”
Garside claimed that the MoJ had originally published inaccurate data showing that the two companies had been paid a total of £32m but had since clarified the figure as being £13.2m.
An MoJ spokeswoman said: “G4S and Serco no longer deliver electronic monitoring services. We have always been clear Capita would continue to use their systems until new tags were developed, which gave taxpayers value for money and put public safety first.”
She said that the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies’ original interpretation of the MoJ data had been incorrect as the bulk of the reported £32m that had been spent had been for the period in 2013 and 2014 when G4S and Serco still held the tagging contract.
The former justice secretary, Chris Grayling, announced in July last year that a small Redditch company, Steatite, would supply the new generation of satellite GPS tracking tags. They in turn sub-contracted to a Taiwanese company, Sanav. But it is understood that the first Steatite tags were rushed into use last year in an attempt to meet Grayling’s end-of-year deadline, but had to be withdrawn amid a dispute over intellectual property rights and other issues. The tags may not be ready until 2016 or later.
G4S runs the largest current satellite tracking programme in the world in France where it tracks the daily movements of 12,000 offenders. A G4S spokesman said: “Our GPS-enabled electronic monitoring technology is a world-leader – designed, developed and exported from our base in Leicester to 17 countries around the world – and we will continue to support the ministry of justice in England and Wales in any way we can.”
This article was amended on 25 June 2015 to make it clear that Steatite, not Capita, was responsible for the delays in the development of the satellite tags.”

“[White’s Club member] Rupert Christopher Soames OBE (born 18 May 1959) is a British businessman, CEO of the outsourcing company Serco. Soames was born in Croydon, Surrey, to Lord and Lady Soames. He is a grandson of Sir Winston Churchill, a nephew of the former Defence Secretary Duncan Sandys and Diana Churchill; the journalist Randolph Churchill and the actress and dancer Sarah Churchill and a great-nephew of the founders of the Scout movement, Robert Baden-Powell and Olave Baden-Powell. His brother is the Conservative MP Sir Nicholas Soames.
Soames was educated at St. Aubyns Preparatory School in Rottingdean, East Sussex and Eton College, and then Worcester College at the University of Oxford, during which time he worked as a DJ at the London nightclub Annabel’s, as well as being elected to the Presidency of the Oxford Union.
Upon graduation, he was offered a position at General Electric Company (GEC) by the managing director Arnold Weinstock. He remained at GEC for 15 years, working in the company’s avionics and computing divisions, and became managing director of Avery Berkel, running the company’s UK, India, Asia and Africa operations.
After leaving GEC in 1997, Soames joined the software company Misys as chief executive of its Midas-Kapiti division. He was promoted to chief executive of the Banking and Securities Division in June 2000.
Soames left Misys after a disagreement with Misys founder Kevin Lomax on the company’s direction, and was appointed chief executive of power hire group Aggreko in June 2003, replacing Philip Harrower who died when his car collided with a train in the United States.
Soames was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2010 New Year Honours. In November 2010 Rupert Soames gave a speech to Holyrood in which he warned, “In the UK, we are already close to the rocks, because, over the next 8 years a third of our coal-fired capacity, two-thirds of our oil-fired capacity, and nearly three-quarters of our nuclear capacity will be closed down either through age or the impact of the European Large Combustion Plant Directive. Absent a massive and immediate programme of building new power stations, with concrete being poured in the next two years, we will be in serious danger of the lights going out.”
“UK Cabinet Office – Emergency Planning College – Serco …..Types of Exercise
Workshop Exercises These are structured discussion events where participants can explore issues in a less pressurised environment. They are an ideal way of developing solutions, procedures and plans rather than the focus being on decision making. Table Top Exercises These involve a realistic scenario and will follow a time line, either in real-time or with time jumps to concentrate on the more important areas. The participants would be expected to be familiar with the plans and procedures that are being used although the exercise tempo and complexity can be adjusted to suit the current state of training and readiness. Simulation and media play can be used to support the exercise. Table-top exercises help develop teamwork and allow participants to gain a better understanding of their roles and that of other agencies and organisations. Command/Control Post Exercises These are designed primarily to exercise the senior leadership and support staff in collective planning and decision making within a strategic grouping. Ideally such exercises would be run from the real command and control locations and using their communications and information systems [Feeling lucky, Punk?]. This could include a mix of locations and varying levels of technical simulation support. The Gold Standard system is flexible to allow the tempo and intensity to be adjusted to ensure maximum training benefit, or to fully test and evaluate the most important aspects of a plan. Such exercises also test information flow, communications, equipment, procedures, decision making and coordination. Live Exercises These can range from testing individual components of a system or organisation through to a full-scale rehearsal. They are particularly useful where there are regulatory requirements or with high-risk situations. They are more complex and costly to organise and deliver but can be integrated with Command Post Exercises as part of a wider exercising package.”
