ホワイトヘルメット創設者の死は会計監査で資金の詐取がばれたため

シリアのアサドがインタビューでホワイトヘルメット創設者の死をエプスタインやその他の著名人の怪死になぞらえています。アサドは英国で学校を出て歯科医をやっていました。世界のニュースをよく読んでいます。
この記事に示された見解は、管理人がこれまでに書いてきたことと基本的に違いはありません。もちろんスクリパル事件には触れていませんし、ルメスリエールが回想録を書こうとしていたという情報は知りませんでした。アサドの推察だろうと思いますが。
そして、アサドはルメスリエールの死亡は他殺の可能性が高いとみているようです。ビンラディンやアルバクダーデイについても触れています。

知りすぎたものは消されるというのは、この社会の鉄則です。米国も英国も、そしてロシア、日本なども歴史的には例外ではありません。

ISISが公表した残酷なビデオにしばしば登場した英国出身のテロリストMohammed Emwaziが、2015/11/12の米国によるドローンを用いた攻撃によって殺害されています。

携帯電話の電波がドローンを誘導する? 英語を話すグループがまとめて殺害されています。英語を解しますから文書はもちろんのこと電話での会話なども全部わかる。米軍にとって何が都合悪かったのか。ヒラリーがアサンジをドローンで殺害できないかと言ったことがあります。おそらくそういうハイ・プロファイルの関与の実態を知られてしまった?

英米当局は「ジハーディ・ジョン」殺害のため「文字通り24時間体制」で協力してきた

桜を見る会関係でも死人が出ますね。←この予想は外れました。

オランダの新聞の報道によると、ルメスリエールの死の数日前に寄付を行っている数か国の要求で会計士が会計監査に入り、その会計士に対してルメスリエールが資金を詐取していたことを認めたのだそうです。高い給料に加えて他の資金引き出しもあり、結婚式の費用も引き出されていたと。しかも記録がほとんど残っていない。

2018年のオランダ外務省の報告書によると、ホワイトヘルメットの資金チャネルは2014年から2018年の間に1億2700万ドルの資金を得たが、そのうち1900万ドルのみが国家以外の寄付者だった。 

そしてシリアに送られたカネのほかにトルコ、ドバイの商業組織を通じて配分されていたと。

各国政府が拠出した100億円余りの資金の使途が不明。大スキャンダルなのですが、どこまで解明、責任追及がなされるか。

White Helmets co-founder stole aid money destined for Syria – report
As Western governments opened their checkbooks for the White Helmets – a controversial ‘rescue organization’ in Syria – their co-founder used the cash to top up his wage and even finance his wedding, according to a Dutch report.

Days before he plunged from a window in Istanbul to his death last year, White Helmets co-founder and British mercenary James Le Mesurier admitted to defrauding Mayday Rescue, an organization that fundraised for the anti-government rescue group in Syria.

According to documents seen by Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant, Le Mesurier told an accountant sent to audit the charity’s books that he forged receipts for $50,000, pretending that it was sent to finance an evacuation operation in Syria. Instead, the money was paid to Le Mesurier himself. In addition to paying himself a salary of €24,000 ($27,414) per month, Le Mesurier dipped into company cash to finance a lavish wedding in Istanbul in 2018, and to issue loans to his new wife, former diplomat Emma Winberg, the report claims.

The accountant sent to investigate Mayday found that “tens of thousands of dollars in cash” were withdrawn to pay for the “fairytale wedding.”

Meanwhile, governments across the Western world were lining up to support Mayday, and channel money to the White Helmets. According to a 2018 report by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the organization took in $127 million between 2014 and 2018, with only $19 million of this haul coming from non-state donors. The government of the Netherlands paid out almost $11.5 million in this period, while similar donations flowed in from Germany, Great Britain, Canada, Qatar, and others.

Despite being hailed as fearless rescue workers, the White Helmets have been accused of partnering with Al-Qaeda. Operating exclusively in rebel-held territory, the group’s members have been photographed posing with jihadists and have been accused of staging chemical weapons attacks to draw in Western forces against Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Le Mesurier’s death was deemed a suicide by Turkish authorities. Shortly afterwards, a number of countries that had donated to Mayday demanded an accountant have another look over the organization’s books. According to De Volkskrant, this probe found that most of Mayday’s financial records are “missing.” Donations were not just handed to the organization in Amsterdam and forwarded to Syria, but distributed through a network of commercial organizations in Turkey and Dubai.

In a letter to donors, Le Mesurier admitted to swindling them out of their cash, but maintained the fraud wasn’t committed on purpose. After these donors discovered their cash had disappeared, they kept the inquiry into Mayday secret, De Volkskrant reported.

The Dutch government pulled its funding from Mayday Rescue almost a year before Le Mesurier admitted the fraud and killed himself. The government in The Hague will not transfer a final subsidy of more than €57,000 ($65,200) to the organization, while Germany is attempting to claim nearly €50,000 ($57,200) back. Cor Vrieswijk, Mayday’s new administrator, told De Volkskrant that the charity will be dissolved in the coming months.

President Assad claimed last November that Le Mesurier’s death was no accident, stating in an interview that the former soldier and mercenary may have been killed because he “knew major secrets.” What Le Mesurier may or may not have known is anyone’s guess, but his death and the subsequent investigation into Mayday has not dried up the White Helmets’ funding.

The group is reportedly receiving subsidies from Western governments through other organizations. At present its members are occupied with fighting the coronavirus outbreak in Syria. However, that hasn’t stopped its leadership from lobbying the US government against Assad and pressing for the maintenance of sanctions, even amid the pandemic.

Assad likens ‘suicide’ of White Helmets founder to EPSTEIN & other high-profile mystery deaths
Syrian President Bashar Assad has scorned the official story of wealthy sex predator Jeffrey Epstein’s apparent suicide, suggesting that people like him, or the late White Helmets founder, knew too much for the rich and powerful.

Epstein “was killed because he knew a lot of vital secrets connected with very important people in the British and American regimes, and possibly in other countries as well,” Assad told Russian channel Rossiya-24 in an interview Thursday.

Assad suggested that the convicted sex offender’s death was analogous to the unusual demise earlier this week of White Helmets founder James Le Mesurier, who allegedly jumped out of a window at his home in Turkey. Turkish police are treating Le Mesurier’s death as suicide.

They turned into a burden once they had played out their roles. A dire need to do away with them surfaced after they had fulfilled their roles.

Assad was referring not just to Epstein and Le Mesurier, but also to Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden – originally trained by the CIA to fight the Soviet Union in Afghanistan – and Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who spent time in American custody in the notorious Camp Bucca and Abu Ghraib prisons in Iraq. All these “had been killed chiefly because they knew major secrets,” the Syrian leader argued.

While Epstein’s death was officially declared a suicide, celebrity medical examiner Michael Baden threw a wrench into the machine when he declared that the deceased pedophile’s broken hyoid bones likely came from strangulation. Le Mesurier’s death, tentatively ruled a suicide, proved too suspicious for Assad, who believes it is the “work of the secret services.”

Possibly, the founder of the White Helmets had been working on his memoirs and on the biography of his life, and this was unacceptable. This is an assumption, but a very serious one, since other options don’t sound convincing to me at the moment.

Le Mesurier was tagged as a “former agent of MI6” by the Russian Foreign Ministry just three days before his death, with “connections to terrorist groups” in Kosovo. His White Helmets group, Assad said, “are naturally part of Al-Qaeda” and have been caught staging “gas attacks” such as the phony event in Douma, used by the US as rationale for a strike on Damascus.

Epstein’s own links with intelligence agencies have been subject to much speculation, especially after Alex Acosta, the former Florida prosecutor who sentenced Epstein to an open-door prison sentence of just 13 months despite allegations he’d trafficked and abused dozens of girls, said he was told to “leave it alone” because Epstein “belonged to i
ntelligence.” Former Israeli military intel officer Ari Ben-Menashe has claimed Epstein worked with Israeli intelligence as well, introduced to the business through his “girlfriend” Ghislaine Maxwell’s father Robert – a known Mossad agent.
