    Question The Alps Murders

    Cloak and dagger intrigue in the Alps...

    Claims emerge Alps murder victim may have had access to part of Saddam Hussein's fortune
    27 Oct 2012 - A British engineer murdered in the French Alps may have had access to part of a multi-million pound fortune once belonging to Saddam Hussein, it has been claimed.
    The possibility was raised by German secret agents working on the international enquiry into the quadruple killing close to Lake Annecy on September 5. Iraqi-born Saad Al-Hilli, 50, died in a blaze of gunfire alongside his wife Iqbal, 47, his mother-in-law Suhaila Al-Allaf, 74, and Sylvain Mollier, 45, a French cyclist. Since the massacre in an isolated wooden layby on September 5th, police and prosecutors have been at a loss to establish a motive for the bloodshed. But now intelligence officials based in Berlin have uncovered evidence that Mr Al-Hilli may have had access to cash which belonged to the former Iraqi dictator.

    This raises the possibility that sinister forces specifically targeted Mr Al-Hilli as a means of gaining access to part of the enormous wealth that Saddam hid around the world, and especially in Switzerland. Specialist police were last week questioning Geneva-based bankers about the Al-Hilli’s assets, while financial records in countries including the USA have also been requested. It has already been established that Mr Al-Hilli was in dispute with his older brother, 53-year-old Zaid Al-Hilli, over the will of their father, Kadhim, who died around a year ago in Spain. Until now it was thought that the money under dispute came from Kadhim’s property dealing and other business interests.



    But the German agents have now told their French anti-terrorist counterparts that cash deposited in an Al-Hilli account in Geneva originally came from Saddam. Kadhim, a former factory owner, left Baghdad in the late 1970s with his wife, Fasiha, and two boys, after allegedly falling foul of Saddam's Ba'ath Party. The family settled in Pimlico, central London, with any accounts containing money given to Kadhim by Saddam allegedly frozen after Kadhim was struck off a "list of beneficiaries", according to the new German intelligence. But the clear implication is that Kadhim may not have fallen out with Saddam at all, and was in fact being used to get money out of Iraq on behalf of the dictator, who was always making plans in case he was overthrown.

    Yeah, of course, he was an Iraqi, therefore it is OK to kill him and his family.

    "…on the 6 September massacre of British-Iraqi scientist Saad Al-Hilli and his family near Chevaline in theHaute-Savoie department of the Rhône-Alpes region of eastern France (bordering both Switzerland and Italy)

    As a top research scientist with Surrey Satellites Technology Limited (SSTL), this report says, Al-Hilli was put under surveillance by Britain’s Special Branch police forces in 2003 after the outbreak of war in Iraq, and as, also, confirmed by Philip Murphy, a neighbour of Al-Hilli in Claygate, Surrey, who was quoted as saying these internal UK spies used his driveway during the war to monitor Hilli's house,

    … Al-Hilli’s vehicle was stopped by an unknown number of gunman who then dragged his seven-year-old daughter Zaina from it and began beating her while demanding information from Al Hilli on the whereabouts of the secret documents he had in his possession. Once that information was obtained, this report continues, Zaina was thrown to the ground and shot with the bullet missing her head by mere millimeters and wounding her in the shoulder, after which the remaining victims were summarily executed, including the French cyclist who was in the wrong place at the wrong time."

    The bullet holes in the vehicle indicate that shooting took place while Al-Hilli was still in the car.

    "Interesting to note are reports in the British press stating that Al-Hilli’s home in Claygate had to be searched by an Army bomb squad before it could be entered into by the police, but who officials said afterwards nothing had been found.

    … the secret information Al-Hilli was attempting to get to Moscow, … was directly related to the research he did for Sir Martin Sweeting, the Executive Chairman and founder of SSTL, who pioneered the concept of rapid-response, low-cost and highly-capable small satellites utilizing modern terrestrial COTS devices to “change the economics of space”.

    SSTL scientists, including Al-Hilli, working with their counterparts at National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, and the University of Sannio, Italy, in 2009 successfully exploited signals of opportunity from GPS satellites to measure the directional roughness of the sea surface from space, and even more importantly, … were able to gauge the speed of how fast our Earth’s poles were moving.
    So important was this breakthrough that this past week (12 September) the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Space Systems award for the Disaster Monitoring Constellation (DMC) was given to SSTL and Sir Martin Sweeting for “being an unprecedented example of international cooperation in the application of space systems to the mitigation of human suffering.”

    Granny says, "Mebbe he killed `em to cover up the fraud...

    Alps al-Hilli family murders: Man charged in fraud inquiry
    13 November 2012 - Mr al-Hilli was originally from Iraq but held British citizenship
    A man suspected of trying to access the bank accounts of the family of an engineer murdered in the French Alps has been charged with fraud. Saad al-Hilli, 50, from Claygate in Surrey, was shot dead along with his wife, mother-in-law and a cyclist near Chevaline, Lake Annecy, on 5 September. Abiodun David John allegedly tried to access accounts in the name of al-Hilli family members after the killings. Mr John, 33, is due to appear at Guildford Magistrates' Court later. He is accused of eight counts of fraud by false representation.

    Surrey Police could not confirm whether the accounts belonged to Mr al-Hilli himself and stressed the fraud charges were not linked to the murder investigation. A Surrey Police spokeswoman said: "Abiodun David John was arrested at an address in Salford, Greater Manchester in October. "He returned on bail today (Tuesday) where he was charged with eight counts of fraud by false representation which are alleged to have taken place between July and September this year."

    Mr al-Hilli's dentist wife Iqbal, 47, her mother, Suhaila Al-Allaf, 74, and passing cyclist Sylvain Mollier were killed in the gun attack. The Iraqi-born engineer's daughters Zainab, seven, and Zeena, four, survived. About 100 police officers in the UK and France are investigating the four murders.
