Thanomjit Chokjanphen's Website was blocked by Lycos Tripod in mid-January
The website, posted in 2004. assisted law enforcement agencies in the search
for a kidnapping and trafficking victim of a pedophile and prostitution ring based in Belgium, Thailand and the U. S.
The website had never been blocked before.
Despite efforts by frinds and relatives, Lycos Tripod has not unblocked the
website or given a credible reason for blocking it.
Because many similar active Lycos Tripod websites exposing pedophiles and traffickers
were blocked since the company's purchase by the Indian company Ybrant Digital in August 2010, it was believed that a new
employee at Lycos Tripod, probably a homosexual or pedophile, was running amok.
But Lycos Tripod eventually revealed that the pedophile ring and its accomplices
were behind the blockage of the websites.
This can only mean that someone at Lycos Tripod is part of the pedophile ring or
an accomplice of the ring for a bribe or a deal. This opinion is supported by former employees of web-hosting companies.
This is the website as it appeared when blocked by Lycos Tripod
Oliver Chanyut! Call your mother, Thanomjit, at
66 - 0839519750 (all calls are monitored), or call the headman on Non Pa Sang Township, Mr. Samai Boosabook, at 66 - 08 33556204. Or call your aunt, Koulap, at 66 - 0895014780.
This website is posted in the hope that it will
lead to the recovery a missing loved one.
All police services and private individuals with
any knowledge of Oliver Albert Chanyut Chokjanphen,
age 21(born 1989), are urged to contact his family
at once as indicated: Tel.: 66 - 08 9 501 4780; 66 - 08 1 052 0698
Please note that Belgian and Thai police services
were complicit in the victim’s disappearance
and remain wholly uncooperative and unreliable.
While searching the web today, I came across a Chanyut Vermeulen listed among eight students at a technical school
called Scheppersinstitut in Deurne for the past school year, 2008-2009
This is the first
trace of Chanyut that I have come across in several years. The school year ended more than one month ago so the record
is at least one month old.
I am inclined to
believe that this is a record of your nephew. However, I should
caution against getting your hopes up too much. This might not really be your nephew. It might be someone using his name.
I have come across many Orientals in Antwerp who are
not using their real names but someone else's name.
We won't know anything for sure until we make contact with Chanyut through a webcam with audio and video. Getting
to that point could take some time. As you know, the Flemish are generally uncooperative and Thais are very unreliable.
I have just spent a couple of days in Bangkok and I met several young Flemings and
Chinese from Antwerp on vacation. They knew Antwerp very well. They knew a Chanyut but it was not clear if this was your nephew. There
seem to be several Chanyuts in Antwerp. One of them said he
would check when he returned to Belgium and contact me.
I suggest that you contact the headman of Chanyut's home township, Mr. Boonthom.
Was a Scheppersinstituut photo on the Internet a photo of missing loved one?
August 9, 2009
Looking at several Scheppers Instituut Deurne websites,
I noticed a photograph of a student who seems to resemble your nephew,
I cannot be certain, of course, but the top part of the face - the eyes, nose and and
forehead - resembles Oliver Chanyut in earlier photos, taken at age five in France. The mouth resembles his mouth in photos
taken later in Deurne, at age six.
Some years ago, a Thai woman in Antwerp said that Oliver Chanyut had grown
stout. The student in the photo looks robust.
Is this a recent photo of Chanyut Chokjanphen?
Photo from Scheppersinstitut 2008-2009 school year
Another opinion about the photo from Scheppersinstituut
I don't think that the photo from the Scheppersinstituut Deurne website that you have posted is one of your nephew.
The big person in the photo does not look Oriental.
Lawson Trob, Winnipeg, Manitonba, Canada

Description of student on websites about him fits appearance in photograph
The big student, on the right in the photograph, really looks Dutch, or northern European. But if you ask someone
if he looks Oriental, they will say that he could be half-Oriental. The student in the photo does not look
like a full Oriental. Still, he could be Mrs. Koulap's nephew.
He is much bigger than the other students in the photo, almost twice their size.
After reading through some of the many websites posted about Chanyut (and the sadistic abuse inflicted on him
by pedophiles - in public and Catholic schools; city, state and federal police; city government; and
provincial courts - I realized that he had been unfairly held back by perverts at a public school twice.
If so, the big student on the right in the photo is two years older than his classmates. That could be him.

Posting a cover-up?
January 20, 2010
Dear Mrs. Koulap,
I am familiar with the
Scheppersinstituut Deurne. One of my step-daughter’s friends went to the school last year. I spoke to this person and
several friends about your nephew. They do not know him. They have never seen him. It appears that your nephew never attended
It is possible (though
I certainly hope not) that someone registered him for a class at the school and posted it on the Internet to cover up his
murder or disappearance. I have not found another posting of classes and students at the school.
It’s too bad that
you cannot contact the other students listed in this particular class with your nephew. I assume that school personnel have
been unreliable or their replies would have been posted on this site.
I wish I could make a
suggestion. It is a scandal that not a single person has come forward to say something. It is a scandal that those who offered
to help you-and public officials whose responsibility it is to help you-have refused to cooperate. It is a situation that cannot last forever. But I fear
the worst for your nephew.
A student at Scheppersinstituut Wetteren
Another photo of same Scheppersinstituut student appears
Subject in photo too young to be missing person
An email message from John Chiang in Phuket, Thailand, April 17, 2010:
Dear Mrs. Koulap,
I found another photo of the student that appeared on the Scheppersinstituut website last year (2009). I am sure the two
photos are of the same student. The photo appeared with an article Online in Het Nieuwsblad - Gemeente Wetteren
on February 11, 2010.
The student in this photo cannot be
your nephew. Although the student appears to be Asiatic or half-Asiatic (perhaps from Central Asia), he cannot be 21 years
old, the current age of your nephew.
Furthermore, the student in the photos is
at the Scheppersinstituut in the town of Wetteren in the province of East Flanders, not in Deurne District of Antwerp.
No reply from Scheppersinstituut to inquiries from Mrs.
There has been no reply from the Scheppersinstituut in Antwerp to repeated inquiries by email from Mrs. Koulap
about her nephew.
The last inquiry, on June 6, 2010, is posted below. The inquiry was sent through the school's website. It
was sent several times.
I would like to know if my nephew, Chanyut Chokjanphen, AKA Chanyut Vermeulen, age 21, is attending the school. According
to information from the school that was posted on the Internet, he was registred for a class last year.
If Chanyut is attending the school, kindly ask him to contact me as soon as possible by email, to my email address, email@example.com , or by telephone to # 66 - 08 9 501 4780.
If Chanyut is not attending the school this year, please let me know how he can be contacted. The matter is urgent.
I would appreciate your attention in this matter.
My best wishes,
Koulap Chokjanphen (Mrs.)

Belgians generally unreliable
At one time the number of Asiatics enrolled in public and parcochial schools in Deurne District could be counted
on the fingers of two hands. But those days are gone. The neighborhoods have changed. Soon, the Flemish
could be another minority in local schools.
One would think that you could simply call the school in Deurne District and find out if your nephew is there. Your problem,
obviously, is the dishonesty of local police, uncooperative school personnel and unfaithful old friends in the neighborhood.
I am afraid to say that this is more than likely due to pedophilia and could be linked to prostitution and the traffic
in women and children. That's an old story in Belgium.
You must remember also that many Thais and Filipinas come to Belgium through prostitution and that many Belgians have
a curious and abnormal attitude towards pedophilia and prostitution. They are unreliable in kidnapping and
trafficking cases. When we lived in Belgium we sent our children to private international schools and forbade them
to play with Belgians. I was always afraid of kidnapping, moreso than at any other time.
Unless you can spend some time in Belgium or hire a reliable lawyer in Belgium your chances of finding your nephew are
almost nil. You better get a criminal lawyer because the Belgians are very corrupt.

Is this Chanyut?
An email message from Paul Crane, Newport, Rhode Island, November 12, 2009
I'm probably wrong but I found on the You Tube a young man who seems to have the name of Chanyut.
The scene is in French and English. It was probably probably in California.
My apologies to the people concerned if I am wrong.

About the You
Tube video clip:
Young man probably
not missing nephew
A message from Bertrand Vermeer,
February 26, 2010
Dear Mrs. Koulap,
I think the young man in the video clip, Merci
Chanyut (Tony), shown on You Tube, looks more like your nephew than the student in the Scheppersinstituut photo.
The student does not look Oriental at all.
The young man, Chanyut, with the nickname
“Tony”, in the video clip looks rather intelligent. Thus, I do not think he is your nephew. Otherwise, he would
have contacted you long ago instead of letting you waste time and effort in searching for him.
I agree with the earlier comment (posted on this websote) that your nephew was probably lobotomized, most
likely in 2004, to keep him from contacting you. This was done by a pedophile ring that included employees of the public school,
SISO II Deurne (across the street from the Scheppersinstituut Deurne); the local Antwerp city
police sub-station (also across the street), the police juvenile division (Jeugdbrigade) in Deurne and Borgerhout districts; and a local hospital (I can think of two possibilities).
You Tube clip unlikely to be one of Chanyut Chokjanphen
email message from Richard K. Romulus, Los Angeles, California, March 10, 2010
I do not think
the You Tube video clip is one of Mrs. Koulap's nephew.
the clip was recorded at a birthday party on Big Bear Mountain, which is by Big Bear Lake in San Bernardino
National Forest is southern California, and one of the people in the clip is wearing a sweatshirt from the Irvine campus of
the University of California. (Ed.: Irvine is about 45 miles south of Los Angeles, between Santa Ana and Newport Beach,
in a region which has the largest number of Thais in the U. S.).
There is another video clip on You Tube
from the same source that was recorded in Las Vegas. (Ed.: It is the only other clip from this source on You Tube.)
I realize that the people in the clip
are singing in French and speaking English with a French accent. They might be French-speaking Belgians.
Tony seems to be the nickname of one
young man whose name appears to be Chanyut. Two Oriental men in the clip appear to be Chinese, Laotian or Thai.
But it does not appear that the clip
was recorded in Belgium.
How could the California
video clip be one of Mrs. Koulap's nephew?
An message from Harold
Gingert, Dublin, Ireland, March 21, 2010
If the young Oriental man in the You Tube clip is
Mrs. Koulap's nephew, this would mean that he probably went to California
with Belgians and/or Thais from Belgium.
No one at the address?
message from Avin Van Berg of Antwerp, October 13, 2009
(Webmaster: Mr. Berg, a retired realtor, is
not an acquaintance of the family. In a previous email mesage he expressed concern and offered to help. He has no ties to
the Thai community.)
Dear Mrs. Koulap,
I looked at the website with your email correspondence
with Belgian officials.
I checked the Online Belgian telephone directory
and found no listing for your nephew. But there is a listing for Peter Vermeulen, as Vermeulen, P., at Gijsbrecht van Deurnelaan
13, 2100 Deurne (Antwerp), with the telephone number, 03 324 47 20. This phone does not answer. It rings 11 times and
then goes dead. There is a mobile phone #, 0475 95 09 75, but this phone too never answers.
I went to the address twice, on a weekday, once
early in the morning, around eight, and again in the early evening, around seven, but there does not appear to be anyone living
there. I inquired at a nearby house and the residents said they had never seen anyone go in or out of the building
I suspect the police lied when they claimed to have "researched" the matter.
Avin Van Berg
Mobile phone user hangs up
I called the mobile phone number given by Mr. Berg. A man answered, "Hello?"
I asked for Mr. Chanyut and he hung up. But the house phone is working. No one ever picks it up but the responder is working.

Due to the strict laws concerning privacy, I cannot give much information. I can only confirm

his adoptive father. If they choose not to contact you, I cannot help you any further.

I wrote to you earlier with a request for the address of my nephew, Chanyut Chokjanphen.
In your last message, on July 29, you declared that you were going to the police to request an investigation. You added
that you would wait for a reply.
I have not received any word from my nephew. No one in his mother’s village has heard from him.
I have received reports of his death, serious injuries, permanent disabilities, his disappearance, and return to Thailand
. I have heard also that he his working in Antwerp ’s China Town.
The address you gave me for my nephew last year is an incorrect address - fraud perpetrated by
an international pedophile and prostitution ring operating with the complicity of the city police and mayor’s office.
I hope your intentions in turning to the police were good and honest and that you asked them to find my nephew, Chanyut.
Many city employees have urged the police to join the fraud, cover for the pedophile ring and intimidate my nephew, his friends,
relatives and witnesses.
It has been 15 days since your last message. Surly, you have received a reply by now. The police should have found my
The police should arrange for Chanyut to contact me directly. That would be the sensible and proper thing to do. This
is a regular police procedure throughout the world. It takes but a few minutes. My nephew should contact me through live audio-visual
Internet facilities so that I can be sure that I am not in contact with someone else pretending to be him.
Would you kindly let me know if my nephew is alive and how I can reach him?
Koulap Chokjanphen (Mrs.)
(Translation from Thai into English by Jack Wallace)
Mrs. Koulap sent many reminders to Mr. Arenas and finally got a reply on September 7,
Van: koulap chokjanphen [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Verzonden: dinsdag 7 september 2010 6:54 Aan:
Javier Arenas Onderwerp: Record of Death
Your response is rather odd and indicates only that
something is wrong regarding my nephew, Chanyut.
How is it that you are the only such office in the world offering
I have sent letters to Chanyut at the address that you gave me last year. All but one of the letters
were returned. We did not receive a letter from Chanyut. He did not telephone. He did not send an email message.
you can still ask Chanyut to call me at once at 66 - 08 - 9501 - 4780. He can call me collect. If he has forgotten Thai, an
English translator is here.

It is best for
him to contact me by phone or email. That is much faster.
You can try to contact my nephew at the following telephone
numbers, which are the phones of the actual resident of the address that you gave me last year, Peter Vermeulen
- 03 324 47 20 and 0475 95 09 75. You can also send him a copy of this email message but I doubt that he will
receive it. You really have to speak to him.
There was no word from Oliver Chanyut, so Mrs. Koulap contacted
Mr. Arenas again, on September 21:
I have not received a reply from my nephew, Chanyut Chokjanphen.
I gave you a letter, as you requested, on September 9, to forward to my nephew (see below). In the letter, I requested
immediate contact with my nephew. You were to give him the letter.
That was three months ago.
Did you forward the letter to my nephew?
There is no conceivable reason for the lack of reply from my nephew. If he is alive, he would have contacted me.
I believe I am due a proper reply from you.
Trusted friends have been to Antwerp and searched for Chanyut. They have not found him. There are an increasing number
of Thais in Antwerp who maintain that Chanyut is dead - and has been dead for some time. Some claim
he was murdered.
Even journalists from media organizations in Belgium who have expressed an interest in the matter could find no trace of
Chanyut or details of his death.
The Belgian police were complicit in the trafficking and kidnapping of my nephew and refused to account for him. There
is no denying the fact. It is well-documented. You can complain to the police about my inquiries if you wish but I will not
be intimidated. I will persist in my efforts to find him.
Kindly contact my nephew and urge him to contact me immediately. If he is dead, please let me know just when and where
he died and give me details of his death.
Kindly press the police again to put Chanyut in immediate contact with me. If the police are derelict, ask the prosecuting
attorney for Antwerp to compel the police to cooperate.
Koulap Chokjanphen (Mrs.)
There was no reply from Mr. Arenas, so Mrs. Koulap sent her email message again, on December
Transcript of a telephone conversation with the headman of Chanyut
village, October 22, 2009:
W. Champa: "Have you seen Chanyut Chokjanphen?"
Kamnan: "Nobody has seen him."
W. Champa: "Have you heard anything about him?"
Kamnan: "Yes, I have. Recently, his mother said that he is still living in Belgium."
W. Champa: "So, have you seen his mother, Thanomjit?"
Kamnan: "Yes. His mother is still in Non Pa Sang. In the evenings, sometimes, I see her walking around."
W. Champa: "Chanyut is now 20 years old. Do you know if the Thai army has drafted him?"
Kamnan: "Of course, I know. He was born here."
W. Champa: "There is evidence that Chanyut lives in Belgium but no one has been able to contact him."
Kamnan: "The police just collected evidence and information from the district office."
What does the above mean?
It probably means that the Thai army asked the police about
Chanyut and that the police have fetched official birth and residence records to confirm that he can be conscripted at
the local army base.
Otherwise, it means nothing. The police have inquired about Chanyut
many times before and did nothing other than write zany reports to excuse police intransigence, incompetence and complicity
in the traffic in children.
The Kamnan has more to say
On November 23, 2009, the headman of Non Pa Sang Township, Boonthom Ragkaew, spoke again to William Champa:
"Chanyut's mother, Thanomjit, says she left Chanyut's case up to the Thai government. I do not have the authority to order
the local police to find Chanyut. We are holding elections in the district now. After the elections, I will speak to the police
at district headquarters, the district chief and the Thai army about Chanyut."
What does this mean? The headman will give the police, district
chief and army the latest information that Mrs. Koulap Chokjanphen has gathered about Chanyut. What they will do is anybody's
guess. The district chief and police are unlikely to do anything unless asked by the army.
What does this mean?
From ------------------------------, December 1, 2009
Why does Mr. Champa talk to village officials in Thailand?
The last headman of Non Pa Sang would never have said "I have no authority . . . " to do this or do that. He let
you think that he could do anything and everything, even if he could not and, in fact, never did anything.
If you want to talk to officials in Pha Khao, go to one of the brothels in the district headquarters, Non Po Dang, during
lunch hour or after work. There you meet local teachers, policemen, young girls . . .
The Kamnan has something to add
On December 22, 2009, the headman of Non Pa Sang Township, Boonthom Ragkaew, spoke again with William
"I spoke to the district chief. He has the documents that Mr. William collected (about Chanyut) and presented. He is
examining the documents now.
"I have not spoken to the local police or to the army yet.
"I will give the documents to Chanyut's mother, Thanomjit, and ask her to present them to the police and to the army."
Kamnan a waste of time!
A comment from T. L., Korat, Thailand, January 3, 2010:
Asking a headman to do something is ridiculous! It's a waste of time. See how he
hasn't done a thing yet. After all this time!
And he leaves it up to a woman who can't read and who is too afraid of the police to take the
matter to them.
No word from the Thai police about Chanyut
More from Mr. Boonthom, March 18, 1010
William called Mr. Boonthom Ragkaew on Thursday, March 18, 2010. Mr. Boonthom’s wife, Mrs. Ragkaew, answered and said
Mr. Boonthom was away for the day.
William said that together with friends and relatives he has searched all over Antwerp
for Chanyut and found no trace of him. Belgian officials are uncooperative. They lie repeatedly. There is a 50-50 chance that
Belgian officials could be hiding Chanyut's death or permanent debilitation.
Ragkaew informed Mr. William that her husband is no longer the headman. There has been a new headman since last December.
His name is Samai Woostatook. She did not know his telephone number.
Ragkaew said no one had heard anything about Chanyut. She said that the police came in September to inquire about Chanyut.
The police checked with the district chief and visited Mr. Boonthom, who showed them letters he had received from Mr. William.
The police also saw Chanyut’s mother, Thanomjit.
months later, in December 2010, the district chief and Mr. Boonthom received more details from Mr. William. Thanomjit asked
Mr. Boonthom for the letter that he received from Mr. William and he gave it to her.
Ragkaew said that it is common knowledge that Thanomjit does not care about Chanyut.
William recalled that Thanomjit associated with pimps, prostitutes and pedophiles in Pattaya and Antwerp
and that they came to the village to bribe her relatives and they bribed officials in Bangkok
and Pattaya. She is afraid of the police.
William said Thanomjit should provide credible evidence to the headman that Chanyut is alive. She should put the headman in
direct contact with Chanyut.
Ragkaew said Thanomjit told Mr. Boonthom that she has not contacted Chanyut but she has relatives living in Prachinburi who
have contacts in Belgium. Thanomjit said
they could find out about Chanyut.
Ragkaew said that the new headman, Mr. Samai, lives next door to Thanomjit.
What does it mean?
The Thai police inquired about Chanyut six months ago. The police should have informed Mr. Boonthom about Chanyut
by now. It appears that the police did not inquire about Chanyut in order to find him but did so for other reasons.
The police throughout Thailand
are often involved in narcotics and prostitution and also in the kidnapping of children for prostitution.
of Chanyut at new headman's home
On August 13, 2010
someone at the the home of the new headman, who was absent, said that he had not seen or heard anything about Chanyut.
home has no news
of Non Pa Sang Township (tamboon) is Samai Boosabok.
28, 2010 the wife of the headman said he was absent.
said that she was familiar with the story of Chanyut. Everyone in the district knows it.
She said she
was aware that the Thai army wanted Chanyut.
She said that that
she would try to find out about Chanyut and call back.
About two hours
later, Thanomjit Chokjanphen called.
that Chanyut is alive and living with his "father", Peter Vermeulen, in Belgium.
She said that
she was not in contact with him.
She said she
did not know anyone in Prachinburi in touch with Chanyut.
She did not
understand that there was a website posted in her name.
wife said that Thanomjit was very simple-minded. She could not read Thai. She did not understand personal computers
and she did not have money to spend in an Internet shop. She lives alone with a young child, a girl.
It is not clear
if Thanomjit's second son, Ed, by Phousith Sibounloeang, is still living with her.
Checking up on the local situation, James Champa learned that
the headman, Mr. Samai, and his wife seem to have separate addresses. But the post office continues to deliver letters
addressed to the headman
to his wife. The headman does not live next door to
Thanomjit, as the wife of the previous headman claimed. But the wife of the present headman seems to live close by. Either
that or Thanomjit has moved to another part of the village and lives next door.
Ther new headman says he has discussed this matter with the
district chief and personnel in the latter's office. Thanomjit is wholly uncooperative. (She realizes that she committed
a crime and fears imprisonment.) The headman understands that public officials were complicit in the trafficking of Chanyut.
It remains to be seen whether or not the headman asks
the police to account for Chanyut and put him in contact with Chanyut.
Mr. James has urged him mist strongly
to ask the police to do so. We should know shortly.
Why the silence?

family find Chanyut

a long-time Flemish resident of Deurne. His parents reside there.
In the 1990s,
Mr. Denys and his common-law wife, a Filipina of Visayan origin, Leah Mindajao, lived together with their two daughters, Abigaile
and Kimberley, in Deurne. (Leah was Mr. Denys's second wife from the Philippines. He was legally married to a Filipina with
whom he no longer lived thus he and Leah lived as a common-law husband and wife.)
Chanyut played with
Abigaile and Kimberley as a young child.
Leah and Thanomjit
often worked together as cleaning women in Antwerp.
Today, Leah and her daughters live with Leah's new husband at Ter Heydelaan 316
b1 in Deurne District.
Afriend of Mrs. Koulap spoke by
phone with Abigaile Denys in early May of 2009. Abigaile agreed to check on a nearby address that the Antwerp city government claimed to be Chanyut's
also sent letters to Leah, Abigaile and Kimberley in early May 2009, by airmail, with a formal request
to check on the address.
But there was no response from either Leah, Abigaile
or Kimberley. (They were not heard from at all, despite numerous reminders.)
So Mrs. Koulap wrote to Mr. Denys. She sent a letter by air.
There was a reply from Mr. Denys by email on May 30, 2009.
I do admire your courage for keeping on trying for
so many years to to get in touch with Chanyut.
First off all, my e-mail with hotmail.com is not standing anymore, so don’t waste your time by sending mail via that channel.
Next, I‘ l try to do the best I can to track
Chanyut down, and to hand him your address and phone number.
I will let you know when I know his whereabouts
as soon as I contacted him.
It will be up to him to contact you or not, I will
not force him, but I think it would be wise of him to get in touch
with his family in Thailand, and also to know what is happening with his mother because whatever happened she is still his mother.
In September 2009 Mr. Denys sent another email message to Mrs.
Koulap but offered no information about Chanyut.

Dear Koulap Chokjanphen,
I did not forget to look for Chanyut, only I did not have
the time to go to the City.
Because of my work in the South of the Country, where I am
staying at a hotel, from Monday to Friday afternoon, I did not have time to see or contact people during the weekdays, so
it as to be done during the weekends.
Since Thai people are not to talkative when it comes to give
you information about other Thais, this is another handicap in finding somebody’s whereabouts.
I’ll keep on trying to find him, but it is not easy.
That was the last word from Mr. Denys.
In November 2009, Mrs. Koulap reminded Mr. Denys and his daughter, Abigaile, about
her request to them.
But, more than 18 months after Mrs.
Koulap's initial request, there was
no word from them about Chanyut.
Behavior of others suspected
September 20, 2009
It is inconceivable that a 20-year-old has absolutely no access to the Internet, but this appears
to be so in the case of your loved one.
It looks also like someone is stealing his snail mail.
Obviously, he has no friends. It is astonishing that all the people around him are cheating him
or are so unreliable.
I cannot help but wonder if your nephew was lobotomized.
do not understand the failure of Bruno Denys, who was a friend of the family, to check on an address for you, especially
if it is so near his home. That is the very least he could do. Takes but a few minutes - not
might be some reason for his reluctance to answer. But then again there might not be. Let's assume that his behavior is generally
erratic and that he is irresposible and unreliable. He might also mean harm, so I suggest not contacting him again.
any case, several people have gone to the address and reported that Chanyut does not live there. Still, it would be better
to hear about it from an old acquaintance liike Denys, who once knew Chanyut and was a friend of his mother.
claim of the Antwerp city police that Chanyut lives at the address, with Peter Vermeulen, and that he does not want to talk
with Mrs. Koulap is indeed an obnoxious lie.
people who made similar inquiries to the Antwerp city police over the years told me that they got similar replies and
learned later that the people they were trying to contact had left Antwerp long before.
the policeman at headquarters tells everyone the same thing. (You have to know Belgians and Belgian policemen to understand
is possible that a policeman in Deurne spoke to Vermeulen and reported his remarks to headquarters. But since Vermeulen is
a hoodlum, there should be no reason to accept anything he says. Perhaps the policeman was very lazy and incompetent. Or he
could have been a relative of Vermeulen. Or he might moonlight for - or hang out with
- the the same criminal gang that Vermeulen works for. (Some Belgian cops procure young girls from Belgium
to bars in the Netherlands. And many Belgian cops are involved with pedophile rings.)

Dear Oliver Chanyut,
You have a box of personal effects in the
garage of the organ maker, De Cap Antwerp. The owner, Roger Mostmans, is holding a large package and a lot of mail for you.
Mr. Mostmans and his family own the building on Essenstraat 22 in northern Antwerp
in which your mother lived in the mid-1990s.
A message from Gustav
Hack, Ghent, January 9, 2010:
Dear Mrs. Koulap,
I believe that your nephew was killed or permanently
physically and mentally disabled by his traffickers to keep him from exposing them.
Your websites detail how pedophiles in Belgium obstructed all efforts by your nephew and
by his family to contact one another. I believe also that the same people are keeping the facts of his death or injuries from
The police, schools and civil service in Belgium are over-run by homosexuals and pedophiles. That is
why you have been unable to find your nephew.
The officials who can find out what you need
to know will do nothing until ordered from above. Their boss has to get something from you-a bit of money -before they will do anything.
All you can
do is to hire a reliable lawyer. He will use his contacts. He will get ibn tiouch with the right officials, the police, prosectors,
or their boss. It should not cost too much.
Two Thai restaurant owners in Antwerp’s Chinatown claim not to know Chanyut
Seree Thai and Tjoung-tjoung restaurant owners uncooperative

July 11, 2010 the Thai wife of the Belgian owner of the Tjoung-tjoung restaurant in Antwerp claimed not to know anyone named
was a lie, of course. The Thai woman, her husband and her children know very well who Chanyut is. Why would she lie?
an old school photo
Is this Peter Francine Francois Vermeulen, born Merksem 1965?
Want to know about Peter Francine Francois Vermeulen
Dear Mrs. Koulap,
I saw a Peter Vermeulen in a bar in Antwerp about two years ago. I just found on the Internet an old secondary school
photo of someone by the same name who closely resembles him. The photo was probably taken some three decades ago, in the early
I found more photos but I am not sure they are of the same person.
Please send me a recent photo of Vermeulen. If I recognize him, I have some information for you about him.
July 11, 2010
Question about the photo
An email comment from (name withheld) of Mechelin, Belgium, August
The photo looks like one of Peter Vermeulen of Antwerpen-Deurne in Belgium but I don't think that's really him because
this photo, from what I understand, was taken between 1965 and 1975.
Photo not of Peter Vermeulen of Deurne District
The photo you have posted is not one of Peter Francine Fancois Vermeulen of Deurne District in Antwerp in Belgium, born
This photo comes from a website for schools in the south of the Netherlands. The photos are solely
from 1965 - 1975.
To maintain contact with Chanyut, Mrs. Koulap is prepared to send him the following:
An international cell phone, with built-in digital camera with audio and video, and all accessories;
A digital camera, with built-in audio and video, and all accessories;

Oliver Albet Chanyut Chokjanphenat age 5
Paris, France, 1994
The Search for Chanyut Chokjanphen
Because Belgians have
been wholly uncooperative, inquiries have been made in the Oriental community of Antwerp. It is hoped that there are decent people, especially among the Thai community,
in Belgium who will help.
The Belgian police have
long maintained that it is impossible to find out anything from anyone in Chinatown
because the Orientals there are extremely secretive and refuse to reveal anything.
There are at least
15 restaurants in Antwerp that specialize in Thai food and others, like the Bosuil
and Gambrinus in Deurne District, that do not appear to be particularly Thai but offer Thai food.
Inquiries have been sent
to each restaurant seven times - on August 8, October 27 and November 29, 2005 and on January 5,
March 23, May 22 and August 9 2006 - in Thai and English (see left column).
There have been several
responses by e-mail, leading to further correspondence, but no verifiable information about Chanyut has been
provided thus far.
Each restaurant was contacted
also directly by telephone.
Over the telephone, some
Thais who own, manage and/or work in the restaurants replied that they knew Chanyut and offered to help contact him but no
further word was heard from them.
When contacted again later
they claimed not to know anything.
Some sounded indignant.
Others sounded as if they were reluctant to reveal something.
Some, who are probably
homosexuals or pedophiles, seemed to derive perverse pleasure in refusing a mother's request for assistance
in contacting her son. (There are numerous Thai homosexuals and effeminate Thai males, and Thai women that are obsessed with male
sexual deviants, who own Thai restaurants and/or are employed by the restaurants or frequent them.)
According to one reply, in August 2005, from a Thai with
the nickname of Boot, who works in a Thai restaurant in Antwerp, Chanyut is living in
Boom District of Antwerp with a Thai family.
The family is trying to
find and contact Loy Thongsukaseum, a Thai woman in her early forties who comes from Chiang Mai and is the ex-wife of Mark
Gordon, an English teacher at the InternationalSchool
in Vientiane, Laos. Loy's
nickname is "Nok".
Loy ("Nok") is married
to a Flemish Belgian, Dre Wouters of Boom District, and has lived in Boom for several years.
If anyone knows Loy ("Nok'),
please ask her to contact this website or email address or call the above telephone numbers.
Another Thai, by the nickname of Wan, insisted that Chanyut is with his mother in Thailand.
Reports that Chanyut is in Thailand
or living with his mother are entirely false.
Another Thai, by the nickname of Som, said that Chanyut had been living in Deurne
District of Antwerp for several years with a friend of Thanomjit's
Belgian ex-husband, Peter Vermeulen.
This has been reported by numerous other persons, both Belgian and Thai, in the
past five years.
Another Thai, with the nickname of Gan, said that Chanyut had been taken away by
the police and placed in a home or boarding school for youths in Brussels.
This has been reported earlier.
A few Thais referred to the police to find Chanyut.
Both the Belgian and Thai police have repeatedly refused to
answer inquiries or requests for help in finding Chanyut. So police officials have deferred to "non-governmental organizations"
("NGOs") in both countries. The police and other government officials refer to NGOs to pass the buck and give the
run-around. NGOs have repeatedly conspired with the child's kidnappers in displays of blatant and perverse criminal behavior.
The only real response, even if delayed and largely
inconsequential, came from law enforcement agencies in the United States
who were asked to search for Chanyut. (They did not offer the run-around by referring to "NGOs".)
Another Thai, with the nickname of Jan, said that she had heard that Chanyut was dead
and that his body was in a morgue in a hospital in Deurne District.
Another Thai, with the nickname of -----------, claimed that a policeman in Antwerp told him that Chanyut died in 2001.
Another Thai, with the nickname ------, said that Chanyut had a broken back or broken
leg and stayed in a hospital or in a home.
Hospitals in Antwerp
have been wholly uncooperative in their responses to inquiries about Chanyut. They have refused to answer inquiries,
claiming that it would be a violation of privacy laws to do so. Such an unreasonable response to an inquiry by a mother searching
for her child, who is of minor age, is false and perverse.
Antwerp's main civil registry office (etat civile/burgerlykestand)
in the main Antwerp courthouse has also been uncooperative.
One Thai, by the name of ---------------, said that Chanyut lived with Veerle Vermeulen,
older half-sister of Thanomjit's ex-husband, Peter Vermeulen.
A woman at the home of Veerle Vermeulen on Ijzerlaan 29 in northern Antwerp shouted obscenities into the phone when contacted and asked about Chanyut. One Thai
described Veerle Vermeulen as "fat, old and ugly, uneducated, ill-mannered and generally vulgar, and insane
- a psychopath" and expressed fear for any child left in her care.
A few Thais referred to the Thai Embassy in Brussels. But there has been absolutely no response of any kind from the embassy.
There were responses, inconsequential, from other Asian
embassies in Brussels, particularly the Malaysian and Philippine
Earlier, Thai embassy officials in Brussels
and Thai Foreign Ministry officials in Bangkok were the sources
of lewd, perverse and false reports, which included many spiteful remarks, and tried to obstruct all efforts to find, contact
and rescue Chanyut. The reports were clearly meant to perpetuate the traffic in women and children and stop anyone from trying
to recover a victim of traffickers.
Thais abroad generally agree that Thai embassy personnel will
do nothing to help Thais find missing loved ones, especially if they were victims of policemen and other government employees
trafficking in women and children.
Unfortunately, several Thais in Antwerp seem to be leading other Thais into obstructing Thanomjit's efforts to
find and contact Chanyut.
One is an elderly Thai woman by the name of Jintana. Jintana's
mother owned/operated the Isan Restaurant in Don Muang in Thailand
for many years.
Jintana has a half-Thai ("look-kroong") teen-age son by a Belgian
who attends (or attended) the InternationalSchool
in Ekeren. He is/was the only Thai at the school. Jintana was jealous of Chanyut because an American acquaintance offered
to pay his tuition to the school. Chanyut would have been the first Thai to enroll at the school.
Jintana is a long-time friend of Thanomjit's ex-common law
husband, Phousith Sibounloeang, a refugee from Laos.
Jintana also enjoyed the patronage of Peter Vermeulen, after his separation from Thanomjit, and their friends in the bar of
her restaurant, the Banteay Laos, now called the Mae Ping, on Van Wezensbekestraat.
For several years in the late 1990s, Jintana also owner a second Thai restaurant, the Sawasdee,
that remained open until dawn. Jinatana's cook at the Sawasdee, Eet, and the latter's husband, were friends of Phousith and
their responses to inquiries about Chanyut were often nasty.
Another Thai obstructing search and recovery efforts is Virat
Sirimalaluk, a divorcee.
Virat's son Baeng is Chanyut's age and they were close
friends many years ago. Chanyut lived with Baeng in Virat's apartment for two weeks in 1996.
Virat and her brother, Daeng, who works in the Sombat restaurant
on Vleehuisstraat, have opposed attempts by Thanomjit's family to trace Chanyut.
The siblings Khek and Noi and their first cousin, Nong, from Samut
Prakan, were once Thanomjit's friends, but they have been uncooperative.
Khek, Noi and Nong are the children of three middle-aged sisters
from Samut Prakan in Thailand who operated the Thai-Bel Barbershop and Beauty Salon on Van Wesenbekestraat for many years. Khek
and Noi are the children of Montien, who lives in Deurne District with her Belgian husband. Nong worked at the barber
shop in its last two years of operation. Khek worked for many years in the barbershop before becoming a receptionist at
the Ploy Phochana Cafe across the street. Noi worked as a receptionist at the River Kwai restaurant.
The somewhat effeminate manager of the Ploy Phochana Cafe, Guy, opposes
efforts to find and contact Chanyut. Guy is prone to loud, irrational emotional outbursts. He is often rude and insulting.
The Ploy Phochana Cafe is owned by Guy’s parents, who owned and operated the Thailand Market and Fast Food Restaurant
across the street in the 1990s. Thai prostitutes "cruise" the Ploy Phochana. Thai women gamble for hours in a back room.
These Thais pose a threat to Chanyut's safety and
In a telephone conversation in August 2005, a Thai woman by the
nickname of "Mai", who owns and/or manages a Thai restaurant in Antwerp, the Mai
Thai Cuisine, replied that she knew Virat, Daeng and Baeng.
“Yes, of course, we know these people.”
And did she know Chanyut? she was asked.
“Oh, Yes, we know Chanyut. He eats here at my restaurant
all the time.”
Then she added a shocking remark: "But, you know, he is ______."
The remark caused concern to those listening. Was the woman being
sarcastic or sadistic and trying to torment a family?
The woman then asked about the exact identity of Chanyut.
“Wait!" she said. "How old is he?”
"Sixteen," she was told.
Then she said that she was referring to another person with the
same name who was older-in
his thirties-and ate in the
restaurant in the evenings once or twice a week.
“It cannot be the Chanyut you are looking for," she said.
"Younger people, teenagers, cannot afford to eat in Thai restaurants.” (A small plate of sticky rice, available in restaurants
in Thailand for five baht, or US$0.13, are priced at the equivalent of
US$5.00 and up in Antwerp.)
The woman said she would check for Chanyut and call back. "What
is his nickname?" she asked. "I cannot idenitify Chanyut without his nickname."
She called about a week later to say that she could find out nothing
about Chanyut. This woman might be a sexual deviant.
While there is no way to
force anyone to cooperate in the search for a loved one, even of minor age, the above-mentioned persons are nonetheless
subject to prosecution and imprisonment if found to have been complicit in the kidnapping and trafficking of Chanyut; related
fraud; injuries inflicted upon him in the course of the crime; and/or deliberately obstructing search and recovery efforts.
Numerous other messages were sent to us by email through related websites last year, including this
one. The sender did not reply when contacted.
sorry to trouble you, but the peter vermeulen, that was claiming to be his father, didnt have a big
dark raised mole at the base of his neck at the front did he??? I ask this because if he did he is here in England and
might know the whereabouts of your nephew.
We stumbled upon your sad plight while trying to find out about a
peter vermeulen, who has stumbled into our life just under a year ago, everything on the web pages fits this guy,
know this is a very long shoot for both of us, but it might just help us both, if you have a photo or anything please do not
hesitate to contact me
The most recent report about Chanyut came from a Thai by the nickname
of ________ who is an employee of a Thai restaurant in Brussels, _________., , in September 2006.
According to this person, Guy T' Jampens, the principal
of SISO 2 Deurne, a secondary school in Deurne District of Antwerp, hoped to avoid further cririticism
of his behavior and forbade Chanyut's return to the school in September 2005.
Subsequently, the juvenile division of the city police put Chanyut in a home or boarding
school in Brussels. Conditions there are apparently similar to those that Chanyut had to endure at Don Bosco in Wijnegem
several years ago. He is not allowed out. He is not allowed telephone calls. He is not allowed to send or receive letters.
Only known pedophiles and their friends and relatives are allowed to see him. He is being taught a trade rather than
being prepared for college.
Unfortunately, there has been no way to confirm this report.
In a telephone conversation with the family on November 8, 2006, the young receptionist at the
Ploy Phochana Cafe, on Van Wesenbekestraat in Antwerp's Chinatown,
said that she saw Chanyut from time to time. She said that he was indeed 17 years old. She said that he dropped by around
seven o'clock in the evenings. She said that
Chanyut lives with
a Thai family in Antwerp.
When contacted later that night, the "boss" of the cafe, an older woman, said that she did
not know Chanyut and, also, that Chanyut did not work there; she advised the family to inquire at a Thai restaurant in town
called the "Poeun", which was the most popular place in town with young Thais.
On November 17, 2006, Chanyut's family,
spoke to more young employees of Thai restaurants in Antwerp who said they knew Chanyut and saw him occasionally.
Indeed, this was Chanyut, age 17.
However, some Thais believed that Chanyut was 20 years old, not 17. Some seemed
to confuse Chanyut with another Thai, who is about 21 years old and is known by the nickname "Yoot".
Chanyut visits two Thais restaurants in Antwerp that are popular with
young Thais, the Serre-Thai and the Poeun (or Poon).
He also visits the Ploy Phochana Cafe in Chinatown.
Further, it was reported that Chanyut was denied return to school at age 16 by perverse
public school employees who are part of a pedophile ring in Antwerp and that he has been forced to work since then.
It appears that the people
around him, both Belgian and Thai, have not informed him of the many telephone calls and public notices that his
family sent to Thai and public establishments and in one way or another dissuaded him from accessing the internet.
It could be that the older
Thais, who own and manage restaurants in Antwerp, fear losing
Chanyut as an employee or patron if his family contacts him.
There are also reports
that Chanyut is dead or permanently maimed and confined to a wheelchair in a small house.
The last word:
On December 21, 2006, Chanyut Chokjanphen's
family called a public secondary school, the Stedelijk Institute for Secundair Onderwijs (SISO) # 2 Deurne, in Antwerp.
A secretary answered. The family asked that the school give a student, Chanyut, an urgent message to call home
immediately after school (at the telephone number of a neighbor, # 66 - 081 - 965 - 1493.)
The secretary said that she would give Chanyut the message.
But Chanyut did not call home.
A Christmas card addressed to Chanyut at a public school in Antwerp,
S. I. S. O. Deurne # 2, posted in Thailand
on December 12, 2006, was returned to the sender, marked "moved", on December 26, 2006.
Given the prolonged perverse behavior of school employees in the past, it is possible that the secretary
was being misleading and that Chanyut is not at the school. It is possible also that the postal item was returned after the
postman received false and misleading information from school employees.
Earlier, on November
8 and 17, 2006, the family, inquiring by telephone from Thailand, spoke
to numerous young employees of Thai restaurants in Antwerp.
They replied that they knew Chanyut and that he visited two Thai restaurants in Antwerp
that are popular with young Thais, the Serre-Thai and the Thai Cafe Poun. Apparently,
he also visited the Ploy Phochana Cafe, which is in Antwerp's Chinatown.
The receptionists of the Ploy Phochana Cafe in
Chinatown and the Serre-Thai (called "Linda" and "Taksin" [or "Thaksin'] in the
latter establishment),said they saw Chanyut occasionally. Indeed, this was Chanyut,
age 17. However, some Thais believed that Chanyut was 20 years old, not 17. Some seemed to confuse Chanyut with another
Thai, who is about 21 years old and is known by the nickname "Yoot".
According to one restaurant employee, on November 8, Chanyut lives with a Thai family in Antwerp.
The family has tried to contact the Thai Cafe Poun, which
is two doors from the Serre-Thai, to no avail. The restaurant is not in any listing of any
But the family has yet to make contact with Chanyut.
Belgian officials in the Antwerp city government
are wholly uncooperative.
If Chanyut is no longer attending S. I. S.
O. # 2 Deurne, and he is living with a Thai family in
Boom District, he might be attending a public school in Boom. But students who attend
S. I. S. O. # 2 Deurne come from all over Antwerp.
Thus far, all attempts to trace Chanyut through Thais in Boom District have come to naught.
The Tawan Thai Cafe in Antwerp was contacted in the evening of March 8, 2009.
The woman who answered the phone, an employee, replied that she knew Chanyut and Chanyut and that he worked at the Tawan
Thai Cafe. She said that he was not there at the time but would be there later. She passed the phone to her manager, apparently
the owner, who said that, indeed, Chanyut worked at Tawan Thai Cafe. She suggested calling back at 8:00 p. m., when he came
At 8:30, the Tawan Tai Cafe was contacted again. A man answered. He said that Chanyut was not there. He did not know
Chanyut, he said. He passed the phone to the owner who, this time, said that no one by the name of Chanyut worked at the Tawan
Thai Cafe. She added that she did not know anyone by the name of Chanyut.
In the background, someone called out: "Chanyut! Does anyone know Chanyut?" Another woman replied: "Tai Laow!"
Thai Police Refusing to Search for Chanyut
Thai policemen who were complicit in trafficking Chanyut have obstructed
search and rescue efforts.
The Royal Thai Police accepted a request to search for Chanyut in late May 2007 and claimed to
have launched a search for him in early July.
At present, however, it appears that the search was obstructed early on by local traffickers
in children in the Thai police, including those who were complicit in trafficking him to Belgium and/or covering up the
Further information will be posted as it becomes available.
Private citizens who have pursued the search should be alert to the possibility
of police harrassment.
Chanyut is considered a missing person by his family, trafficked to Belgium by his mother,
Thanomjit Chokjanphen, and her accomplices in pedophile and prostitution rings trafficking in women and children in
Belgium and Thailand.
If alive, Chanyut is now age 19. He reached the age of majority in Belgium at the
age of 18.
Where is Chanyut? If anyone knows, please notify his family.
"The Thai Armed Forced are divided into three
branches: the Royal Thai Army (RTA), Royal Thai Navy (RTN) and Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) . . . composed of professional

URGENT MESSAGE FOR OLIVER ALBERT CHANYUT
September 29, 2004
Oliver Albert Chanyut Chokjanphen, age 15, telephoned the home of
Mr. Adoon Namboothla, who is a neighbor of his mother, Thanomjit Chokjanphen, in a village in Loei Province of Thailand,
during the night of June 25 or 26, 2004. He
called from Belgium.
This was a big
event in the village. Relatives, friends and neighbors had not heard from Oliver Chanyut in nine years. His mother
has not had any contact with him in more than five years.
called late at night, when most of the village was asleep. Mr. Adoon asked him to call again during the day.
to contact Oliver Chanyut. She made
several calls to Belgium, but the persons she contacted were uncooperative.
Then, at one o'clock one
morning in late August, Oliver Chanyut called Mr. Adoon again. Mr. Adoon asked him again to call back during the day.
But Oliver Chanyut
did not call again. This caused grave concern.
Mr. Adoon did not bother to get Oliver Chanyut's telephone number.
Thanomjit cannot travel
to Belgium to search for Oliver Chanyut because she has three young children to take care of. She gave birth to a baby boy
Two telephones in the
village, one which belongs to Mr. Adoon (66 - 1 - 965 - 1493) and the other to Dr. Kay, the township clinic director (66
- 1 - 220 - 6598), can receive calls from overseas but, apparently, cannot call overseas.
Thus, Thanomjit has
to go to the post office at the district headquarters several miles away to make a telephone call to Belgium. The post office
is open from 08:30 to 16:00 Thai time (02:30 to 10:00 in Belgium).
is advised to try to call Thanomjit again at the home of Mr. ("Nai") Adoon or Dr. ("Maw") Kay. He should give his name and
telephone number. Then he must ask whoever answers the phone to fetch Thanomjit. Then he must call back in 15 minutes.
Mr. Adoon and
Dr. Kay have limited knowledge of English. But Thanomjit can speak some English.
is advised also to call the Pha Khao district chief, at 66 - 1 - 871 -5841, if he cannot contact Thanomjit. He must ask for
the district chief ("Nai Amper"). The chief can speak some English.
Remember, that Belgium
is currently five to six hours behind Thailand. Oliver Chanyut is advised to call between the hours of 02:30/03:30 and 14:30/15:30
CEST (daylight saving time/summer time in Belgium)( http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ ).

Please inform the student, Chanyut Chokjanphen, that he can call his family in Thailand directly at the following
telephone number, any time of the day or night, 24 hours round the clock, at 66 - 04 - 726 - 4836.
Please deliver the following urgent message directly to the 10th grade student, Oliver Albert Chanyut Chokjanphen.
an urgent matter and school employees should have the decency to cooperate and reply. If Chanyut is not at the school, kindly
inform us where he is.
Guy T'jampens, school principal; Maascha Van Eyck, assistant principal; Paul Calot, non-academic supervisor of students; and
Inge Huyskens, school secretary:
law, the school must give the student messages from his family. Failure to do so is a violation of the law. Theft of mail
is punishable by fine and imprisonment.
Thanomjit is Chanyut's only surviving parent. He has no relatives or legal guardian in Europe. The fraud committed by Deurne
District officials, to alter Chanyut's name and origin, does not give anyone esle the right to claim custody of Chanyut or
deny him and his family contact with one another. School employees who do so are complicit in kidnapping and subject to arrest
Despite repeated reminders, Guy T'jampens, Paul Calot and Maascha Van Eyck continue to steal mail and
block messages for Oliver Chanyut from his family.
Belgian postal authorities in Antwerp have ignored three requests from Thai postal authorities for the
name of the person who accepted and signed for a registered letter for Oliver Chanyut at the school on December 12, 2006.

A Lawyer for Chanyut
A lawyer in Brussels is prepared to assist
Oliver Chanyut in all legal matters.
Oliver Chanyut is the victim of fraudulent official registrations and reports and their use for
criminal purposes by perverts and criminal gangs.
Belgian civil registry records must be restored. A lawyer must petition the Antwerp civil court to order the Antwerp city
administration to restore original records.
Oliver Chanyut is entitled to Belgian citizenship in his proper name. A lawyer will
probably be required to pursue the matter.
are other legal matters, both civil and criminal, that concern Oliver Chanyut. He is entitled to compensation for damages
inflicted by the fraudulent official registrations and fraudulent official reports; theft of his mail; abuse by school
employees, city administration officials and police; etc.
past two years, three employees of SISO 2 Deurne - Guy T'jampens, Paul Calot and Masscha Van Eyck
- have repeatedly stolen letters from home to Oliver Chanyut advising him to contact the lawyer and providing
Oliver Chanyut should contact the lawyer without delay.
Oliver Albert Chanyut Chokjanphen,
a 15-year-old from Thailand in Belgium, called his home in Thailand in June 2005. He reached a neighbor. He asked
for his mother, Thanomjit Chokjanphen.
Thanomjit tried to call Oliver
Chanyut back but failed to reach him.
Oliver Chanyut called the neighbor
again, three months later, in August 2004. Again, his mother tried to reach him but failed.
All indications are that
Oliver Chanyut has been kidnapped by pedophiles with the complicity of Antwerp city police and city administration officials.
It appears that he is also denied mail and telephone calls. It is possible also that he is denied access to pen and paper,
telephone and the internet. He is denied contact with persons who can help him. It appears also that he is being theatened
and intimidated and that he is afraid to try to contact home again.
The following inquiry has been sent by mail to each
Thai restaurant in Antwerp eight times - on August 8, October 27 and November 29, 2005 and
on January 5, March 23, May 22, August 9 and December 12, 2006 - in Thai and English.
An Appeal to All Thais in the Benelux for
Information about a Loved One:
SISO 2 Deurne employees continue to obstruct
delivery of the family's mail and messages to Chanyut. They steal the mail. They are trying to block email messages.
It should be recalled that the convicted
Belgian pedophile Marc Dutroux kidnapped children from a school directly across the street from his home. Policemen searching
his home later heard the cries of the children. Some believe that policemen were complicit in Dutroux's procurement of children
to pedophile rings.
In the case of Chanyut Chokjanphen,
there is overwhelming evdience of the compicity of Antwerp city police, Antwerp city public school employees and Don Bosco
school employees with an international pedophile ring operating in Antwerp and Thailand.
It can be added here that in rural up-country Thailand, grade
school teachers frequent brothels at local district headquarters that procure girls and boys age 13 and under.

law, you must comply with a family’s request for contact with a loved one, especially since the latter is a minor.
Legal counsel in Belgium
has advised that you are culpable for all injuries, physical and emotional, inflicted upon the child and his family through
your failure to comply with the family’s request. You are not protected against prosecution in criminal court or against
suits for damages in civil court through a statute of limitation in such case.

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at yahoo.com.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.
From the Life section of The Nation, Bangkok,
June 4, 2007
It's the turn of Thai actresses to show the Asian side of sex
trafficking in an acclaimed Belgian TV series
It's to be hoped that viewers of a Belgian TV series on human
trafficking have the same revelation as Tharinee Songkiathanna, one of its stars. Like most people, she had no idea how perfectly
sensible women could inadvertently end up in the sex trade.
Then she met some.
"Matrioshki" - the title means
"Russian Dolls" - began in 2005 as a 10-part series about a criminal gang from Antwerp that recruited young women in Lithuania
to be sex toys back in Belgium.
The series was so well received that a second string of episodes - this one about Asian
women being swept into the lurid game - has been shot in Bangkok and Pattaya. More filming will take place in Belgium next
Portraying the victims are actors Tharinee, Chalita Chaisaeng, Duangduean Kumphasee, Pailin Patta, Pannane
Sangkorn and Thanita Jirapanich.
Tharinee plays Thip, the daughter of a poor upcountry family who is sold into prostitution
and works in Pattaya, where her pay is split between the family and her agent. She's soon sold to another agent, this one
The young women who get sucked into the business, says Tharinee, "really have no other chance, no education,
no nothing". She got an education, though, when she read the script by Marc Punt - co-director of the series with Guy Goossens
- and actually met the girls working in the bars.
After four weeks mingling, Tharinee remains pessimistic about the
sex workers being freed from the trap. Thip does escape in the series but is ultimately forced to return to the profession
"because she has no other choice".
"It could happen to anyone, even the people close to you," says Pailin, who plays
Gai in the new series. Gai is sold to work in a brothel where a fire breaks out and she's unable to escape - because she's
handcuffed in place.
Pailin had a friend, a university graduate, who wanted to make a lot of money and ended up sold
into slavery abroad. It took a few years before she could find her way back home.
"I don't think the overseas trade
is a big problem for Thailand now," Kaprice Kea, their agent, observes. "It's become more of a problem for Cambodia, Vietnam
The scenes shot in Thailand were straightforward, nothing lurid, all five actresses say. Most of the filming
took place in bars, among dancers and escorts, but "none of the scenes are X-rated", says Duangduean.
Nor are any
of the actresses worried about next month's shoot in Belgium.
Kea is keeping a sharp eye out for any deviations from
their contracts. He knows that pressures on the set can sometimes lead to an actor being forced to do a scene that's beyond
the agreed range.
"I have to make sure the scenes are no more than just 'sexy' - no nudity, no topless shots," he
Despite the controversial content, the goal of the series is to bring about a change in both the law and
public perception of human trafficking.
The message of the original series was both received and acclaimed. Belgian
viewers embraced the show and it was declared Best TV Drama Series at the Radio and Television Critics Awards.
