Belgian Interior Minister, Antoine Duquesne, Conspired with Pedophile Ring

Home | Page Title





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


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 persistent 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. 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.

Minister of Interior

Subject: Family Requests Direct Contact with Kidnapped and Trafficked Child

Dear Mr. Duquesne,

I received your letter of April 23, 2003 (Ref.: SAT/LOC/adp/57707/2002/P688/4919-68006-68007/2003) (copy attached).

The matter concerned the kidnapping and trafficking of a Thai child, Oliver Albert Chanyut CHOKJANPHEN, and the refusal of Belgian officials to assist the family, represented by the child’s aunt, Mrs. Koulap Chokjanphen PIMSAK of the above address in Thailand, to search for him.

According to your letter, you refuse to assist the family to find and contact the child.

Mrs. Koulap has sent many requests to the Belgian authorities for direct telephone contact with Oliver Chanyut. Mrs. Koulap needs to confirm first-hand that Oliver Chanyut is alive and find out in what condition and circumstances he is in.

But Belgian officials are uncooperative. They refuse to give any information to the family. Some ignore the requests. Some offer the run-around and false excuses. Some send false reports.

A clerk in the Ministry of Interior’s Office of Services for Foreigners, V. Finet, claimed, in a letter one year ago, dated May 24, 2002, to have found Oliver Chanyut. But Ms. Finet did not mention Oliver Chanyut’s address or telephone number. Ms. Finet claimed that she (or her office) notified Oliver Chanyut by letter of Mrs. Koulap’s request to contact him. Ms. Finet did not answer requests for details and a copy of her letter to Oliver Chanyut.

Ms. Finet’s superior, S. Schewebach, director-general of the Office of Services for Foreigners, ignored Mrs. Koulap’s requests and offered the run-around; his successor, M. Roosemont, did not reply.

Mrs. Koulap asked you, in a letter 11 months ago, dated June 24, 2002, for assistance in contacting Oliver Chanyut. She pointed out that he was a minor without the means of calling home and that he was not getting his mail.

Mrs. Koulap sent her letter several times. Friends sent copies with reminders and urged you to reply. But you did not answer Mrs. Koulap.

Your letter, addressed to me, was your first acknowledgment of countless requests that date back to January 2002. There is no particular reason to write to me, however; it would be more appropriate for you to write directly to Mrs. Koulap.

According to your letter, you “contacted” Oliver Chanyut yourself. (It was not clear if you actually contacted Oliver Chanyut or someone else.)

Mrs. Koulap cannot rely solely on second-hand reports. She must speak to Oliver Chanyut herself.

You omitted the vital information Mrs. Koulap requested - Oliver Chanyut’s address and telephone number.

Also according to your letter, Oliver Chanyut is “in good hands.” Obviously, that is not true - or Mrs. Koulap’s would not have to search for him or request the assistance of the police.

You claimed also that Oliver Chanyut “does not want to contact you.” (It was not clear to whom exactly you were referring.) Then you begged to be left alone.

This is not a proper excuse for not answering Mrs. Koulap. (It is one of the excuses that was offered by the social worker and detective of the juvenile division of the eastern zone of the city police of Antwerp in northern Deurne District; both are complicit in the child’s kidnapping and trafficking.)

It seems doubtful that you could account for the child, or present credible documents, or justify your remarks under oath in court - or that the child will confirm your remarks.

In any case, if your remark was true, it points out that Oliver Chanyut is trapped by bad company in an intolerable situation from which he must be rescued immediately.

Belgian police, judicial, school and Antwerp city administration officials and representatives of ‘non-governmental organizations” (“NGOs”) have interfered with Oliver Chanyut’s life since he arrived in Belgium. They persisted in separating him from his family and trafficking him. They deliberately impeded his growth and development. They peddled false reports.

Police and city administration officials in Antwerp perpetrated fraudulent civil registrations to alter Oliver Chanyut’s name and origin and traffic him to notorious degenerates existing in marginal circumstances and consorting with hoodlums.

Mrs. Koulap’s younger sister is Oliver Chanyut’s mother and only parent. She went to Belgium through a “marriage of convenience” to “ply the trade.” She returned from Belgium without Oliver Chanyut four years ago. She has had no contact with him. He has no relatives or legal guardian in Europe.

City administration officials opposed the family’s efforts to contact him; they took advantage of the child’s predicament to aid and abet pedophiles, prostitutes, kidnappers and traffickers in children, vent racial bigotry, and express anti-American sentiment (Oliver Chanyut has an American godfather).

Perverse and bigoted public school officials held Oliver Chanyut back unnecessarily (a child prodigy, who could read and write English at age four, he should be in eighth grade at least); perverse police and public and parochial school officials repeatedly prevented the family (his mother, aunt, uncle, grandmother, great-aunt and great-uncle) from contacting him.

Police and judicial officials obstructed the legal process to prevent recovery of the child by his family.

One cannot claim that a child - persistently abused; victimized by thieves and corrupt officials; denied a proper education, normal company and his family; and kidnapped and trafficked - is “free” and “in good hands.”

Oliver Chanyut is a minor. Only his family has a legal right to custody. One cannot ask a family to forget a loved one because their concern for him inconveniences corrupt officials who were complicit in his kidnapping and trafficking. The family has a right to contact the child and the right to request the assistance of the police.

Mrs. Koulap received many alarming reports about Oliver Chanyut’s condition recently, as stated in her letters to the city police of Antwerp. (Copy of Mrs. Koulap’s last request to the chief of the city police of Antwerp, Luc Lamine, on May 5, 2003, attached. There was no reply.)

I should add that at age 18, all Thai males, at home or abroad, must serve an obligatory two years in the Thai armed forces. It appears, however, that Belgian government officials intend to interfere with the duties and responsibilities of a Thai citizen.

I advise you to send Oliver Chanyut’s address and telephone number to

Mrs. Koulap and to arrange for Oliver Chanyut to speak to Mrs. Koulap by telephone without further delay. If approached properly, by persons with good intentions and expressing genuine concern, he should cooperate.

If Oliver Chanyut cannot speak Thai, he can speak to Mrs. Toom in Bangkok (66 – 038 – 410 – 042). He should give his address and telephone number,

names of the persons he lives with, their jobs or professions, the name and address of his school, and a list of things that he most urgently needs - food, medicine, clothing, money, etc.

You should also send Mrs. Koulap a copy of Ms. Finet’s letter to Oliver Chanyut, as she requested many times.

Sincerely yours,

James Champa

Subject: Search for a Child in Antwerp

Mr. Lamine:

I am trying to contact my nephew, Oliver Albert Chanyut CHOKJANPHEN, age 14.

I have sent 19 requests for assistance to the city police since October 2001. I have not received a reply.

Chanyut’s mother (and only parent), Thanomjit Chokjanphen, is my younger sister. Thanomjit left Chanyut in Antwerp, without relatives or legal guardian, when she returned to Thailand four years ago, in January 1999. She has had no contact with him since then.

A gang of pedophiles, with the complicity of local public officials, kidnapped and trafficked Chanyut. They committed fraud to alter his name and origins. They steal his mail. They prevent him from contacting us.

Chanyut’s whereabouts are unknown. Acquaintances in Antwerp claim that they cannot find him. There have been reports of his death, severe permanent injuries, prolonged ill health, hospitalization, placement in an orphanage, organized theft of his mail, the hawking of his belongings, persistent abuse by school officials, repeated threats to his life by persons who fear exposure by him, etc.

According to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, to which Belgium is a signatory, Belgian authorities must respect the rights of Chanyut and his family to be together.

Kindly put Chanyut in telephone contact with me. I want to confirm that he is alive and discuss his condition and circumstances with him.

Sincerely yours,

Minister of Interior
Rue Royale 60 - 62

Subject: Belgian Officials Complicit in the Traffic in Children


Dear Mr. Dewael:

On behalf of Mrs. Koulap Chokjanphen Pimsak of Thailand, Thor Hammerstein wrote to you, on August 21, 2003, about Mrs. Koulap's search for her nephew, Oliver Albert Chanyut Chokjanphen, age 14, last reported to be in Antwerp.


The long (and always) urgent search for Oliver Chanyut has been obstructed by officials of the Belgian government and so-called “non-governmental organizations” (“NGOs”)in Antwerp, Brussels, Ghent and Neufchateau who conspired to kidnap and traffic the child or colluded with his kidnappers and traffickers and/or their accomplices; conspired to perpetrate fraud to alter his identity and civil status or colluded in the perpetration of the fraud; conspired to peddle false reports about the child and his family or colluded with those who did; abused him or aided and abetted abuse and neglect of him by others; and persistently obstructed due legal procedure to prevent the family from tracing, contacting and recovering him.


They are city police officials in Antwerp; state, justice and federal police officials in Antwerp, Brussels and at the Belgian embassy in Bangkok; city administration officials in Antwerp; the prosecuting attorneys and assistant prosecuting attorneys in Antwerp and Neufchateau; social workers for the provincial social services office in Antwerp who are assigned to the juvenile court; representatives of the Comite voor Bijzondere Jeugdzorg in AntwerpKind & Gezin in Antwerp and Brussels; previous Belgian Ministers of Interior and Justice and their aides; past and present Belgian Foreign Ministers and their aides; past and present Belgian ambassadors to Thailand and a previous Belgian consul in Bangkok; the present Belgian Prime Minister and his aides; the Antwerp Bar Association; and Belgian Red Cross (Flanders) officials; United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) officials in Brussels; representatives of “Child Focus” in Brussels, H. O. V. K. in Antwerp and the Child Rights Center in Ghent.


Officials of the Thai Embassy in Brussels conspired with Belgian officials to ignore the family’s requests for assistance in finding Oliver Chanyut; and colluded and/or conspired in the perpetration of fraud and false reports.


The above is well documented.


I hope the above information is helpful in conducting an effective search for Oliver Chanyut.


Sincerely yours,


James Champa

La fin de carrière d’Antoine Duquesne
Fin de carrière politique pour Antoine Duquesne. Rencontre riche et touchante avec un homme qui a perdu l’usage de la parole en 2006.

About Duquesne's letter


Antoine Duquesne’s reply was a long-delayed response to many letters to him since January 2002 by Mrs. Koulap Chokjanphen Pimsak of Thailand, written in Thai with translations in English attached, requesting immediate contact with of a loved one, her nephew, Oliver Albert Chanyut Chokjanphen, then age 12, who was stranded in Belgium following his mother’s arrest in Thailand in 1999.


Duquesne never replied to Mrs. Koulap. Duquesne ignored many requests. Eventaully, after more than a year, he finally replied    -   but not to Mrs. Koulap. Instead, he wrote to Mr. James, who had written to him at Mrs. Koulap's request on her behalf.


Duquesne's letter included outlandish lies and shockingly lewd and perverse remarks, leaving little doubt of his complicity in pedophile and child trafficking rings.


Duquesne claimed that he had been in personal contact with Oliver Chanyut and that Oliver Chanyut had told him that he did not want to contact "you". By "you", Duquesne meant Oliver Chanyut’s mother, his aunt or the translator.


One year later, in May 2004, the family received several vulgar email messages in Dutch from an imposter, probably a city public secondary school employee in Antwerp, SISO 2 Deurne, claiming to be Oliver Chanyut. The messages were not addressed to Mrs. Koulap or Mrs. Thanomjit, or to William Champa, who was sending email inquiries on behalf of the family, but to Oliver Chanyut’s former sponsor.




One month later, in June 2004, Oliver Chanyut telephoned home and asked to speak to his mother. He called again two months later, in August 2004.



There were no reply from Duquesne's successor, Patrick Dewael, and the new Minister of Justice, Laurette Onkelinx, to letters in 2003.
