To who it
Mispelaere, declare as follows:
On june 7th 2004
Benjamin Tseu, son of Nathalie Dendooven, was abducted by his father to
Malaysia. Since that moment Nathalie
and myself have been searching for the child.
We didnt know where the child was.
Because of this reason we traveled several times to Malaysia to find the
child. We suspected the child lived
with his father in the house of his grandmother in Kota Kinabalu (East
Malaysia). In march 2006 this
suspection was confirmed. So we started
a plan to go to Kota Kinabalu and get Benjamin back home in Belgium. Before we started our operation we were
informed by the Belgian government that there was no penalty for getting back
an abducted child to Belgium.
Unfortunately our operation turned out wrong and we had to return to
Belgium without the son of Nathalie. Of
course since that moment the father was alarmed and we realized there would be
no second opportunity to get Benjamin back.
In September 2006 we got the
name of a Dutch kidhunter (Anselmo
Llobera) who assumed to be the best placed person to get Benjamin back. We contacted this man and had to travel to
Rijswijck (The Hague) Netherlands. We
arrived at the appointment and as it happened we were introduced to a man
called Gus Zamora who was also there by so called coincidence. Llobera told us he could not do the job of
snatching back Benjamin but his partner in business, Gustavo Zamora was the
best option, so he told us. And yes,
Gustavo Zamora overwhelmed us with all the possibilities he had. 40.000 Euros and Benjamin would be back
home. Of course we agreed. He asked 10.000 euros less than we had in
mind. The deal looked honest to
us. 25.000 euros in advance and 15.000
euros when Benjamin was back. We
drove home with a good feeling.
Somebody was going to help us to get Benjamin back home.
Between September 2006 and
januari 2007 we had regular contact through telephone with Gustavo Zamora. He let us believe he was working on a plan,
so Mission Malaysia was a fact.
Although, we believed his story but half a year later we were faced with
reality. Nothing has been done.
At the beginning of February 2007 Gustavo
Zamora contacted us. He told us he was
in Europe for wintersports with a friend of his. He would come to our home to discuss the plan and to get the
advance of the money. He arrived with
his friend. A man called Mike Milligan,
of whom later revealed, also was victim of the practices of Zamora. When they were in our home in Varsenare, I
payed Gustavo Zamora 15.000 euros cash.
Mike Milligan was witness of this payment. I have a written receipt but at this moment I have to search for
it. I guess I stored it to good on a
save place. Anyway, I can and will find
it back. I also went to the KBC-bank in
Bruges-Sint-Andries and payed through bank transfer 10.000 euros on name of
Gustavo Zamora Jr, Routing No: xx-1, Account: xx422, Swift:
PNBPUS33, Wachovia National Bank, 11265 Causeway Boulevard, Brandon, Florida
33511. For the receipt of the bank I
have to contact the Bank. That same day
Mike Milligan told me Zamora was a good guy and that we could trust him. About a year later Mike Milligan contacted
me to tell me that he had been cheated by Zamora but at that moment we already
had broken contact with Gustavo Zamora, for the same reason. I believe Mike Milligan when he says he did
not know in February 2007 Gus Zamora was a scammer. Also in our hometown Varsenare he let us believe he had a friend
who had a boat in the Philippines and could come with that boat to Borneo to
pick us up when the job of snatching Benjamin was finished. In the few days Zamora was in our home in
Belgium we made a plan to go to Malaysia.
We would meet in Kuala Lumpur in the DYNASTY Hotel. We would go with him to East-Malaysia, Kota
Kinabalu to look what could be done to snatch Benjamin. Anyway we would at that moment do nothing to
get Benjamin. We only were going over
there to make some plans.
In the days after Gus Zamora traveled back tu
the States I had contact with the General Staff of the Malaysian Police. At that moment I was still working as a
police-officer in Belgium and it was also a privilege to me that I could
contact on an easy way this police corps.
I did not tell Zamora about my contact.
February 26th 2007 I traveled to Kuala Lumpur. A friend of me, Luc Geerolf, was with
me. February 27th 2007 we
arrived in Kuala Lumpur. The same day a
meeting with Chief Inspector GURDIAL SINGH, head of Interpol Malaysia, was
planned. We also met Gus Zamora that
day and I told him about the meeting with the police, later that day. Gus Zamora accompagnied me that day to Royal
Malaysian Police Headquarters in Bukit Aman, Kuala Lumpur. We met Chief Inspector Gurdial Singh. There I got the promise of Gurdial Singh
that they would cooperate with me and arrest George Tseu, the father and
abductor Benjamin. The only thing I had
to do was provide, through Malaysian government, for an OFFICIAL REQUEST OF
EXDRATITION, for George Tseu. While the
man was arrested the mother, Nathalie Dendooven, would have full parental
authority, so Benjamin would be handed over to his mother. After that she could leave the country
without any problem. I was satisfied
with the proposition of the Chief Inspector Gurdial Singh.
After we left police headquarters, we went for
a drink on a terrace. At that moment I
said to Gus: If we can solve the problem this way you do not have to be payd
as much as I did already. Maybe its
better you refund me my 25.000 euros and I pay you for all the costs you made
to come to Kuala Lumpur. It was clear
for me that I did all the work at that moment to convince the police to
cooperate in the case of Benjamin Tseu.
Gus did not even answer me. He
only said it was necessary to go to Kota Kinabalu to look for the possibilities
to evacuate Benjamin from the island of Borneo for the case the plan with the
extradition would not work. He also told
me that there was a problem with the boat in the Philippines. His friend, owner of the boat had a heart
attack and went back from the Philippines to the States. The boat was no longer available. But Gus had solved the problem and had
rented another boat in the Pilippines in a port of Cebu. They would be in standby when Gus gave them
a sign we would recover Benjamin. So we traveled to Kota Kinabalu the next
day. In Kota Kinabalu we stayed at the
King Dynasty Hotel. Gus rented a car
and we drove to the coasts for a few days to look for a place where the famous
boat of the Philippines could come close enough to pick up somebody. At a certain moment, while we were in the
middle of nowhere, he received a telephone call. He was talking very familiar with the person who called him. He called the person: SERGEANT MAJOR. Then he got angry on the phone and was
talking about fools, etc. He hang
up. There he told us that the
Philippine-owner of the boat was a stupid fool. Instead of waiting for a sing to stand by the already were on
their way from the Philippines to the isle of Borneo. Even worse, they almost reached territorial waters of
Borneo. Zamora sent the boat back to
the Philippines. At that moment I
didnt realize the consequences of this story.
Now I realize Zamora was building up a story to find a reason to keep my
money. The next day Zamora said he had
seen enough to make a plan and preferred to travel home. Me and my friend did the same and we went
back to Belgium.
July 3th 2007 Zamora contacted me again. He said he was working on a case in Turkey
and had to come to Belgium to get some papers.
At that moment he was in Amsterdam.
Of course he was with is associate mr. Anselmo Llobera but at that
moment I had no attention for this. The
next day he arrived at my house in Varsenare (Belgium). Then he told me he was working on a case for
a woman called KAREN POLIZZI and asked me if the woman could transfer money to
my bankaccount. Once the money was on
my account, I had to transfer it to his account. Because, at that moment I still trusted Gus Zamora, I had no
problem with this. I dont know more
how much money it was but a few days later the money was on my account and I
transferred it to Zamoras account. Of
course, now I realize he probably found a way to cheat that person to. I never heard anything more about this
transaction, nor the person herself.
Its a pity because now I know I could have helped the woman to discover
the real person of Zamora. Two days later Zamora left the country. Since then I did not see him back
again. Months went by and I had regular
contact with Zamora. The official
extradition of George Tseu didnt work because of the Belgian Government was
not prepared to cooperate with the Malaysian government. So we had no other choice than to go further
with Gustavo Zamora. His plan was to
snatch Benjamin on his way to or back to school. It would be a piece of cake Zamora said. During the month of September 2007 I alerted
Zamora on the fact that at the end of October school holidays start in Malaysia
till the first Monday of January.
Zamora promised me he would act in time. Then, in the last week of October he had found a solution. He told me he needed more money because all
the 25.000 euros had been spent on renting the boat, his flight tickets,
parking fee on the airport, hotel costs, etc.
This looked very strange to me.
So he needed more money to BUY a boat on the isle of Borneo. I had to pay the boat and he would buy it on
his name. At that moment I realized
Zamora was cheating me so I let him know that I would stop my cooperation. I made the account of all the costs he
enumerated and I confronted him with the reality. At that moment he started to scold me. He threatened me, if I called him a scammer he would take a
lawyer and bring the case to court of justice, etc. After this I received one or two mails of Zamora within he wrote
he went to Malaysia to tell the chief Inspector Gurdial Singh who I really was. But of course these were only words because
me, myself I also had en still has contact with Gurdial Singh and at this
moment I know he never went back to Malaysia.
Anyway I stopped in time and only lost 25.000
euros. Although, its still 25.000
euros. Meanwhile I have good contacts
with Mike Milligan. He is a US-citizen
and is also a victim of Zamora. He paid
Zamora 50.000 us dollar in 2005. He is
prepared to help me and other victims of Gustavo Zamora. My goal is to STOP GUSTAVO ZAMORA, making
other victims, and of course, if possible, get my 25.000 euros back.
