Belgian Government Covering Up Fate of Trafficking Victim
 
Diplomat  Pedophile  Ring  Obstructing  Thai  Mother's  Efforts  to  Recover  Child  from  Belgium

 

This website is posted in the hope that it will lead to the recovery of a victim of traffickers in women and children.

 

All police services and private individuals with any knowledge of Oliver Albert Chanyut Chokjanphen (AKA Chanyut Vermeulen, Channy Vermeulen, DJ Channy and DJ Chavvy), age 24, born in Thailand on February 28, 1989, and last seen in Belgium, are urged to contact this website and/or his family at once as indicated: Tel.: 66 - 08 4 726 4836; 66 - 08 - 6024 - 7032. Or jamesonrosemont@yahoo.com .

 

Belgian and Thai police services were complicit in kidnapping and trafficking the victim, obstructed search and recovery efforts and have been in all ways wholly uncooperative and unreliable since then. The Thai police intimidated complainants and witnesses and threatened their physcial safety. There is overwhelming documentary evidence of their persistant criminal conduct.

 

The last trace of the victim was the listing of an address and telephone number in the name of 

Chanyut Vermeulen in Zondhoven, Belgium on two Belgian telephone company Internet websites in mid-October 2013 (see above). He is unknown at the telephone number, which is in another town, and there has been no response to the letters sent to the address. 

 

It is believed that the victim is surrounded by bad company and unaware of the Internet posting. 

 

 

Call home! Tel.: 66 - 08 - 4 - 908 - 5040

 

Three telephone numbers for the township headman (kamnan tamboon), Boonthom Ragkaew: 66 - 87 - 214 - 138366 - 85 - 756 - 5799

 

Or call your mother's neighbors: Adoon: 66 - 89 - 274 - 5099; Maw Kay (?) ; Lamyai (?)

Belgian Ambassadors to Thailand, Pierre Vaesen and Jan Matthysen, Ignored Urgent Letters from a Thai Family for Contact with Missing Loved One in Belgium 

Fate of loved one unknown
 
Belgian officials suspected of hiding death or serious injuries
 
Outgoing Belgian ambassador to Thailand, Pierre Vaesen, insisted that he was doing all that he could but, three years later, there is still no contact with loved one
 
Vaesen's successor, Jan Matthysen, refused to answer requests from the family to share replies from the Foreign Ministry in Brussels about loved one 
 

 
All indications are that Belgian Embassy (Bangkok) personnel are in complicity with pedophiles, kidnappers, traffickers in children, fraudsters and corrupt government officials in Belgium and Thailand to obstruct and delay the family's search for the child to take advantage of diplomatic immunity and statutes of limitation  

Three years ago, in late June 2004, Oliver Albert Chanyut Chokjanphen, a 15-year-old Thai boy last seen in Antwerp, Belgium six years earlier when he was nine years old, called his home in Thailand.

 

He reached a neighbor, Adoon Nambootla, at one o'clock in the morning.

 

He asked for his mother, Thanomjit Chokjanphen.

 

The neighbor, Mr. Adoon, asked him to call back during the day.

 

In the following days, Oliver Chanyut's mother called old acquaintances in Antwerp, both Belgian and Thai, and a city public secondary school in Deurne District. Belgian acquaintances and school employees were uncooperative. Mrs. Thanomjit failed to reach Oliver Chanyut.

 

Thus, Mrs. Thanomjit made an urgent request to the Belgian Embassy in Bangkok for contact with her son. 

 

At Mrs. Thanomjit's request, a letter was sent on her behalf by a friend of the family, William Champa, to the Belgian Ambassador to Thailand, Pierre Vaesen, by telefax on July 27, 2004 (copy attached below).

 

There was a reply on the same day from a vice-consul, Sandra Moreau, by e-mail, requesting more information (copy attached below), which was provided by e-mail two days later, on July 29, 2004 (copy attached below).

 

Ms. Moreau replied again, by e-mail, on the same day, July 29, 2004, that the matter had been referred to the a Foreign Minstry office (unspecified) in Brussels and that the family would be duly informed of all developments (copy attached below).

 

But there was no further word from the embassy.*

 

A reminder of Mrs. Thanomjit's urgent request was sent to Mr. Vaesen, by e-mail, three weeks later, on August 17, 2004 (copy attached below).

 

Vaesen replied, by e-mail, two days later, on August 19, 2004   -   the day before his four-year tour in Thailand officially ended (copy attached below). Vaesen insisted that he was doing all that he could to find Oliver Chanyut. He gave his assurance that Mrs. Thanomjit's request would receive proper consideration and that she would be informed of any developments.

 

About one week later, in late August, Oliver Chanyut called home again. (The circumstances of the call are unknown.) 

 

He reached the same neighbor, Mr. Adoon, again at one o'clock in the morning.

 

The neighbor asked him to call back during the day. He did not call back.

 

There has been no contact with Oliver Chanyut.

 

On October 14, 2004 a reminder was sent to Vaesen's successor as ambassador, Jan Matthysen (copy attached below).

 

The consul, Hilda Van Inthoudt, replied on October 15, 2004 with a request to see Mrs. Thanomjit at the embassy (copy attached below).

 

In reply, on October 15, 2004 Ms. Van Inthoudt was informed that Mrs. Thanomjit could not travel to Bangkok (copy attached below). Ms. Van Inthoudt was asked for information about Oliver Chanyut from the embassy's contact at the Foreign Ministry in Brussels (copy attached below).

 

There was no reply.

 

After several reminders, Van Inthoudt replied, on October 22, 2004, stating again that she was waiting for Mrs. Thanomjit (copy attached below). She did not answer additional requests to share information from the embassy's contact at the Foreign Ministry in Brussels about Oliver Chanyut.

 

Reminders were sent to Matthysen on November 7, 9 and 15 , 2004 by e-mail, telefax and regular mail (copies attached below).

 

There was no reply from Matthysen. But on November 16, 2004 Van Inthoudt replied, again requesting a meeting with Mrs. Thanomjit. Clearly trying sweep the matter under the rug by passing the buck, Van Inthoudt claimed incorrectly that only the Thai Foreign Ministry could handle the matter (copy attached below). * *

 

In a letter of reply, on November 17, 2004 Ms. Van Inthoudt was reminded of the promise of the previous ambassador, Vaesen, to pass on to Mrs. Thanomjit any information the embassy received from the Foreign Ministry in Brussels about Oliver Chanyut (copy attached below).

 

There has been no further reply from the Belgian embassy in Bangkok despite repeated reminders.

 

There is no doubt that Belgian Embassy personnel have deliberately tried to thwart the family's efforts to find and recover a missing loved one. 

 

Earlier, several representatives of "non-governmental organizations" ("NGOs") in Thailand, the Thai Red Cross Society and UNICEF, contacted Thanomjit and her older sister, Koulap Chokjanphen Pimsak, and tried to persuade them not try to find or contact Oliver Chanyut.

Sathorn City Tower - 17th floor

Subject: Request for Contact with Relative

 

I have been asked by Mrs. Thanomjit Chokjanphen of the above address to request the return of her son, Oliver Albert Chanyut Chokjanphen, age 15, to her from Belgium.

 

Mrs. Thanomjit cannot contact you directly herself. She lives in a rural village up-country. She does not have a telephone. She is familiar only with the Lao and Thai languages. She cannot read or write in any language. She has three young children to take care of. She gave birth to a child several days ago and cannot travel to Belgium.

 

Mrs. Thanomjit can correspond within Thailand by a neighbor’s telephone. She must go to the post office at district headquarters several kilometers away to make international telephone calls.

 

Mrs. Thanomjit and Oliver Chanyut were separated in January 1999 when Mrs. Thanomjit was unable to return to Belgium after a brief trip to Thailand.

 

Mrs. Thanomjit and relatives have been trying to contact Oliver Chanyut for several years by mail and by phone but their efforts were obstructed by persons in Belgium.

 

Oliver Chanyut called Thanomjit’s neighbor during the night of June 25 or 26 and asked to speak to his mother. The neighbor asked him to call back during the day. He has not called back.

 

Thanomjit fears for her son’s physical safety. She would like to reunite him with the family in Thailand.

 

Thanomjit is Oliver Chanyut’s only surviving parent. He has no relatives or legal guardian in Europe.

 

According to employees of the # 2 Public Secondary School in Deurne District of Antwerp (SISO II Deurne), Oliver Chanyut lives with Denis Baelemans and Veerle Vermeulen on Ijzerlaan 29 in Northern Antwerp.

 

Baelemans confirmed that Oliver Chanyut lived at the address but he was uncooperative otherwise.

 

You can contact Mrs. Thanomjit, to confirm the above details, at the above address and telephone number.

 

Please ensure that the relevant authorities in Belgium help Oliver Chanyut contact Mrs. Thanomjit as soon as possible.

 

We pray for Oliver Chanyut’s well-being and for his safe and swift return home.

 

On behalf of Mrs. Thanomjit, I am,

 

Sincerely Yours,

 

William Champa

Subject: Request for Contact with Relative

 

Your Excellency:

 

At the request of Mrs. Thanomjit Chokjanphen of Loei Province, I conveyed Mrs. Thanomjit’s urgent need to find and contact her son, Oliver Albert Chanyut Chokjanphen, age 15, in Belgium, in a letter on July 27, 2004 (see below). (The letter was sent by telefax.)

 

I received a reply from the embassy on the same day, in a letter from the vice-consul, Sandra Moreau, by e-mail, requesting more information (see below).

 

I sent Ms. Moreau the information requested, in a letter by e-mail two days later, on July 29 (see below).

 

I received another reply from Ms. Moreau, by e-mail, later on the same day, assuring me that Mrs. Thanomjit’s urgent request had been sent to the concerned unspecified office in Brussels and that the family would be kept posted of all developments (see below). 

 

There has been no word from Oliver Chanyut or the Belgian Embassy in the 19 days since. The family is concerned about the delay, which seems unusually long.

 

Please ensure that the Belgian authorities find Oliver Chanyut and put him in contact with Mrs. Thanomjit without further delay. 

 

I am, on behalf of Mrs. Thanomjit,

 

Sincerely yours,

 

William Champa

Subject: The Correct and Proper Identity of the Child 

Your Excellency:  
 
Mrs. Thanomjit Chokjanphen of Loei Province has requested your assistance in finding and contacting her 15-year-old son, Chanyut Chokjanphen, last reported to be in Belgium.
 
In your letter of August 17 you referred to Chanyut by the name of Chanyut Vermeulen.

Please note that Mrs. Thanomjit's son is registered in Thailand and other countires by his proper name, Chanyut Chokjanphen. He was originally called Chanyut, Albert and Oliver during his childhood in Thailand, or up to the age of four.

Following Chanyut's arrival in Europe in 1993, all three names were usually recorded in official registrations. However, Belgian and French officials preferred the name Oliver (or Olivier). Thus, in most Belgian records, he was listed as Oliver (or Olivier) Chokjanphen.

In 1994, the Belgian government registetred the child as Chanyut Chokjanphen.

In October 1995, Thanomjit's Belgian husband, Peter Vermeulen, made a false claim to parentage of Chanyut through a false declaration to the registrar's office of Deurne District of Antwerp.(For full details, see website     http://jameschampa.tripod.com/fraudbyantwerpofficials ). The child's surname was altered to Vermeulen in official Belgian records.

The fraudulent registration was used later by Vermeulen's relatives to kidnap the child and by their accomplices in the Belgian government to obstruct the family's search for him. 

According to legal counsel in Belgium, the fraud perpetrated by Vermeulen and complicit Belgian officials does not give Vermeulen a legal right to custody; nor does the fraud give Vermeulen or Belgian officials the legal right to deny the child his family or the family the child.  

Thus, it is inappropriate for you, or anyone else, especially official representatives of the Belgian government, to refer to Chanyut Chokjanphen as Chanyut Vermeulen.

My best wishes,

I am, respectfully,

William Champa

Your Exellency:

 

Mrs. Thanomjit Chokjanphen of Loei Province requested the assistance of the Belgian Embassy in Bangkok to find and contact her 15-year-old son, Chanyut Chokjanphen, last reported to be in Antwerp.

 

Mrs. Thanomjit's request was submitted to the embassy on July 27.

 

The embassy replied, on July 27 and again on July 30, that the request had been forwarded to the relevant office in Brussels and, also, that the embassy would inform Mrs. Thanomjit of any news.

 

Your predecessor as ambassador, Jean Vaesen, also replied, on August 19, that the embassy was doing all that it could.

 

But Mrs. Thanomjit has heard nothing from or about Chanyut or anything from the embassy.

 

Mrs. Thanomjit does not have a telephone. But Chanyut called a neighbor in late June. Mrs. Thanomjit tried to reach Chanyut through acquaintances in Antwerp but failed. Thus, she sought the assistance of the embassy to contact him.

 

Chanyut called the neighbor again in late August. Mrs. Thanomjit tried to reach him through a city public school in Deurne District of Antwerp but school employees were wholly uncooperative.

 

I should point out that Mrs. Thanomjit is Chanyut’s sole parent. She has sole legal right to custody. A pedophile ring, city police, and city administration officials in Antwerp committed fraud to alter Chanyut’s identity and origin. The fraud does not allow anyone a right to claim custody of Chanyut or deny him his family.

 

Mrs. Thanomjit will appreciate your assistance in contacting Chanyut.

 

I am, on behalf of Mrs. Thanomjit,

 

Respectfully yours,

 

James Champa

(Corrected Copy of letter sent 10/15/04-10:26 AM)

 

Friday, October 14, 2004

 

Dear Ms. Van Inthoudt,

 

Thank you for your kind reply.

 

As far as I know, your letter was the first message directly from you that anyone who contacted the Belgian Bmbassy on behalf of Mrs. Thanomjit Chokjanphen has received. Earlier, there were, as I mentioned, replies from Sandra Moreau, vice-consul, and Pierre Vaesen, ambassador.

 

As explained previously, Mrs. Thanomjit has three young children, including an infant child, to take care of and she cannot travel to the Belgian Embassy in Bangkok at this time. Mrs. Thanomjit was in a desperate situation last June, when my family was alerted to her predicament. Her ex-common-law husband, Phousith Sibounloeang, a Laotion refugee with Belgian citizenship who resides in Antwerp, managed to come to Thailand last month, after many years away, to be with her.

 

I shall forward a copy of your letter, with a translation in Thai, to Mrs. Thanomjit. She cannot read or write. So, the embassy should try to contact her by telephoning a neighbor, Mr. Adoon, at 01 - 965 - 1493, and speak to her directly.

 

All the pertinant information was sent to Ms. Moreau last July. To whom in Brussels did Ms. Moreau forward it? Mr. Vaesen claimed that the embassy was doing all that it could to help Mrs. Thnaomjit contact Chanyut. There should have been a response long ago.

 

The family is concerned that perverse persons in Belgium, which has earned a notorious reputation worldwide for pedophilia and the murder of children in recent years, have harmed Chanyut and are obstructing the family's efforts to contact him.

 

I hope that you will correct this situation and put Mrs. Thanomjit in contact with Chanyut without further delay.

 

Sincerely,

 

J. Champa

 

(Ed note) The above letter was sent again on October 20 with the additional note:

 

We would appreciate a reply to this urgent matter. KIndly answer as soon as possible.

Dear Mrs. Van Inthoudt

 

I thank you for your reply.

 

I will forward your correspondence to Mrs. Thanomjit Chokjanphen, who is in Loei Province.

 

However, as I pointed out in previous correspondence, Mrs. Thanomjit cannot travel to Bangkok at present, as you would like, and to expect her to do so would be unrealistic.

 

Mrs. Thanomjit cannot read or write any language, thus, unfortunately, she cannot write to you.

 

I will ask Mrs. Thanomjit to telephone you, however, and explain to you the problem. She can speak a bit of English. She does not know French or Dutch.

 

In any case, you should have received a reply from your contact in Brussels about Mrs. Thanomjit's son, Chanyut Chokjanphen, and you should have so informed Mrs. Thanomjit (or me), as the previous ambassador, Pierre Vaesen, promised. 

 

Indeed, what reply did you receive from your contact in Brussels? It has been more than two months since your colleague, Ms. Moreau, first referred the matter to your contact in Brussels.

 

Sincerely,

 

William Champa

Subject: Embassy Should Have Information from Brussels for a Family about a Loved One
 
Your Excellency:
 
I refer to my letter of October 14, 2004, which I wrote at the request of, and on behalf of, Mrs. Thanomjit Chokjanphen, of the above address, and her relatives.
 
Mrs. Thanomjit and her oldest child, Oliver Albert Chanyut Chokjanphen, now age 15, reported to be in Belgium, were separated several years ago and are trying to reestablish contact.
 
In a letter on August 19, your predecessor, Pierre Vaesen, wrote that the Belgian Embassy was doing all that it could to find Oliver Chanyut. Mr. Vaesen said he would inform Mrs. Thanomjit of any information he received from the Foreign Ministry in Brussels. Yet, three months later, there has been no contact between Mrs. Thanomjit and Oliver Chanyut   -   and there has been no word about Oliver Chanyut from the embassy.
 
Kindly give us Oliver Chanyut's address and telephone number; the name, address and telephone number of his school; and the names of the persons he is living with.
 
I look forward to your reply.
 
On behalf of Mrs. Thanomjit, I am,
 
Respectfully Yours,
 
William Champa

Sir,
 
Unfortunately I did not have had the occasion to meet Mrs. Thanomjit Chokjanphen, as has been suggested several times.
 
As Mrs. Chokjanphen and her child are both Thai citizens, I advice that she contacts the Thai Embassy in Brussels. As a matter of fact this administration is the sole authority responsible for Thai citizens residing in Belgium.
 
Sincerely,
 
Hilde Van Inthoudt
Consul

Subject: Embassy Should Have Information about a Loved One for a Family
 
Ms. Van Inthoudt

Please note that my letter of November 8, 2004 was addressed to the Belgian ambassador, Jan Matthysen (letter attached below).
 
Mrs. Thanomjit Chokjanhen of the above address must contact her son, Oliver Albert Chanyut Chokjanphen, a minor who is Belgium without relatives or legal guardian. The matter is most urgent.
 
In a letter on August 17, the previous ambassador, Pierre Vaesen, insisted that the Belgian embassy in Bangkok would help Mrs. Thanomjit contact Oliver Chanyut: " . . . I can assure you that my staff has done and is doing the maximum to inform our head office in Brussels regarding your urgent request . . . " He promised to pass on any information that the embassy received about Oliver Chanyut to Mrs. Thanomjit and me: " . . . we won't fail to inform you, Mr Champa, as well as Mrs Thanomjit about further information we receive in the future." (Letter attached below.)
 
Earlier, in a letter on July 27, the vice-consul, Sandra Moreau, said: "We'll won't neglect to inform the concerned departement in Brussels about this case." In another letter, on July 30, Ms. Moreau said: "We will keep you informed from every information we will receive from them."
 
It has been almost four months since the embassy's initial inquiry. By now, the embassy should have received Oliver Chanyut's address and telephone number, and the name, address and telephone number of the school that he attends.
 
What information has the Belgian embassy received about Oliver Chanyut from the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Brussels?
 
If the Belgian embassy fails to make an appropriate reply, I will post an open letter to the ambassador in the press. He will not be able to justify his refusal to help a Thai mother find and contact her young son.
 
Please note that your remark that the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs "is the sole authority responsible for Thai citizens residing in Belgium" is incorrect. In the first first resort, Interpol, the Thai police, the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other Thai government agencies routinely refer inquirers about Thais in Belgium to the Belgian Embassy. Furthermore, the Thai Embassy in Brussels makes inquiries initially through the Belgian police. 
 
Sincerely yours,
 
William Champa

There was no reply to the above letter.
 
On November 29, copies of the letter to Matthysen, Van Inthoudt's last reply, the reply to Van Inthoudt, and the earlier replies of Moreau and Vaesen, were sent by regular mail to Matthysen at the embassy and the ambassador's residence. They were sent to the embassy also by e-mail.

* Footnote:
 
Following routine procedure, the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Brussels should have referred Mrs. Thanomjit's request directly to the city police of Antwerp.
 
However, the Belgian Foreign Ministry could have sent the request also to federal police headquarters in Brussels, which would have referred it directly to the city police or the prosecuting attorney's office in Antwerp.
 
The prosecuting attorney's office in Antwerp could refer it directly to the city police or, if need be, to a judge of instruction who would order the police to find the child and put him on the telephone to his mother.
 
The prosecuting attorney's office in Antwerp could also refer Mrs. Thanomjit's request to assistant prosecutors assigned to the juvenile court, who would refer it social workers of the juvenile divison of the city police.
 
The Belgian Embassy in Bangkok might have referred Mrs. Thanomjit's 
request to the Belgian police representative at the embassy, Jean Allaert, who, following routine procedure, would send it directly to the city police of Antwerp, or to federal police headquarters in Brussels, or, according to Interpol international headquarters, to the National Central Office in Brussels, which is the International Criminal Police (ICPO - Interpol) contact in Belgium. Following routine procedure, Interpol in Belgium would send the request to the prosecuting attorney's office in Antwerp.

 

* * The Belgian police bribed (or in some other way coerced) successive Thai consuls at the Thai Embassy in Brussels to ignore requests from Chanyut's family for help in contacting him. The Belgian police bribed (or in some other waty coerced) the Thai consuls to circulate false reports about Chanyut to Thai government offices in Bangkok. Ms. Van Inthoudt might not have been aware of this fact.

 

Thai consuls are notorious for their collusion with prostitutes, pimps, pedophiles and traffickers in women and children. 

 

Thai consuls conspired with Thai police and Thai Ministry of Labor & Social Welfare officials in Bangkok to try to cover up Chanyut's predicamant and discard requests for his return to Thailand.

 

Belgian and Thai government officials who are pedophiles, homosexuals and prostitutes and complicit in the traffic in women and children used Chanyut's case to advertise themselves.

 

The highly publicized Belgian pedophile scandals, at least those that surfaced in the media, pointed out the complicity of the Belgian police and judicial officials with pedophiles in the traffic in women and children. 

 

As a young child, Chanyut had American friends. Belgian and Thai government tried to stir up anti-American sentiment with false reports about him.

 

There have been complaints that Belgian pimps and traffickers in the Thai resort town of Pattaya are behind the Belgian embassy's intransigeance.  

 

Belgian embassy officials have been uncooperative and have refused to consider requests from the family for contact with Chanyut since a vice-consul, Raoul Van Heuverzwyn, in 1997. Van Heuverzwyn claimed to have forwarded an inquiry to a "personal acquaintance" at trhe Belgian MInistry of Foreign Affairs in Brussels who he claimed was the "Foreign Ministry's official liaison" with a so-called "non-governmental organization" called "Child Focus". Child Focus is a child trafficking and procurement front for pedophiles and their accomplices in government that was set up to deflect public criticism when the Michel Nihoul-Marc Dutrouc pedophile scandal, implicating many government officials, erupted in 1996. According to a case worker for "Child Focus", Heidi De Pew, in late 1998, "Child Focus"did not officially accept case work until mid-1998 and "Child Focus" never received an inquiry from the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.   

 

The Belgian ambassador to Thailand at the time, Cristina Funes-Noppen refused to answer complaints from the family against Van Heuverzwyn or consider requests to put the family in contact with Chanyut. Funes-Noppen's successor, _____________, behaved similarly.

 

The Belgian police liaison posted to the Belgian Embassy in Bangkok, Jean Allaert, opposed any attempt by the family to trace and contact Chanyut. Allaert appears to have had been a sexual deviant. He frequented the notorious haunts in Pattaya of Belgian pedophiles, homosexuals, and traffickers in women and children, at times in the company of Thai policemen in plainclothes wearing FBI t-shirts.
