    A snippet I saw in The Intercept which discusses some of the Snowden data which was apparently published by Le Monde: That GCHQ have been targeting Areva in the recent past.

    It may not be anything but it does al least show a surprising interest in Areva by the Brits on the SIGINT side and so could support a scenario where the UK also had assets fishing around in the Lake Annecy area at that time.
    Could Martin, a likely part time MI6 asset have been supporting SAH on an expedition, moonlighting as a plausible “cut out”, and meeting SM for transferring actual secrets or information/evidence of some sort ?
    Some other party could have been onto SM, intercepted the meeting unexpectedly and thought it a good idea to teach whoever they thought was behind it (Iranian assets?) a lesson.

    Also, btw, I believe it could be perfectly possible the weapon was not in fact the Luger. The handle fragments could have easily been dropped to throw everybody off the scent when in fact a light, high capacity assassination device was used. What was that Czech machine gun that was originally reported as a contender?

      that’s quite far out
      to suggest
      the ancient handle-grip fragment was dropped, to muddy the waters, while saying a modern weapon was used, very forward planning.
      However, the old handle-grip fragment, could have been dropped, later, to muddy the waters?

    ASSISES Deadly robbery at Lathuile campground: the accused renounces his appeal

    He was to be retried for four days by the court of Assizes of the Savoy: the instigator of the mortal flight of the camp-site of Lathuile (Haute-Savoie), Jose-Fernando Saraiva, 43 years, has just discarded its call At the very beginning of the hearing, on Thursday afternoon.

    Neither the civil parties nor the public prosecutor objected to the withdrawal which the court ultimately gave to the accused. The appeal is therefore set aside and the conviction of José-Fernando Saraiva to 18 years’ imprisonment in July 2016 in Annecy has become final.

    In the night of November 10 to 11, in Lathuile in Haute-Savoie, five men including two armed men assaulted the couple of managers at their home. The victims had put them to flight but, by withdrawing, the criminals opened fire through a door. The projectiles had fatally touched the wife, Nicole Communal-Tournier, 54 years.

    The sentences pronounced in Annecy ranged from 2 years in prison to 18 years of imprisonment. The shooter was 15 years old.

    An internal report written by FRENCH intelligence, parts of which were published in the daily newspaper Le Monde on Sunday, reveal efforts by the Mossad to develop relationships with French spies.
    An internal report written by French intelligence, parts of which were published in the daily newspaper Le Monde on Sunday, reveal efforts by the Mossad to develop relationships with French spies, “to the point of crossing the line of turning them into double agents.”

    The audit report recommends investigating Bernard Squarcini, the head of the General Directorate for Internal Security until 2012, on suspicion of maintaining unauthorized and unreported ties with the Mossad’s Paris bureau chief at the time (identified in the report only by his initials, D.K.).

    The background to all this was a joint operation launched by the Mossad and French counterintelligence agency in 2010 to collect intelligence about Syrian President Bashar Assad’s chemical warfare plans.

    The operation, code-named Ratafia, aimed to recruit a senior Syrian engineer, who was meant to come to France to do additional training in chemistry and also to help recruit other engineers.

      I know Theresa May ( Home Secretary at the time of Chevaline Massacre) is now Prime minister, she currently has an awful lot on her plate
      but Francois Hollande ( President of France at the time of Chevaline Massacre)
      promised to find the truth and tell the people?
      He has bugger all to do as he is a lame duck, he could at least get Chevaline sorted, before he retires.

        Learning the Truth (from the lips of two stereophonic “Ministries of Truth”) like “learning the lessons of Iraq” is to completely ignore and repeat them, and means of course, the exact polar opposite.

    So now we are getting somewhere.

    After the Mossad had shut down EU help for the Assad regime’s chemical weapons program for which MI5 , thanks to Theresa May’s support, volunteered Masood , bur without any result, so the Israelis decided to do something similar with Iraq’s alleged WMD through Saad al-Hilli. whom the Brits coughed up, and the French supplied Sylvain Mollier. The Mossad supplied the operative to pick up the intended results.

    The only trouble was that there was neither information nor money to exchange at the meeting near Lake Annecy connecting deceased Saddam to the swap, so the Mossad-recruited assassin (William Hershkovitz?) went on the rampage until it came to killing the al-Hilli female children.

    Then everything had to be covered up.

    The device was lifted by the rescuers. The searches were unsuccessful. They will resume this Wednesday morning.

    Numerous forces of the gendarmerie, firemen and mountain rescue societies have been engaged today in a vast research operation in the Bauges massif, on the border between Savoie and Haute-Savoie. More than 20 people were mobilized, including gendarmes of the mountain group of the Annecy company and the high mountain squad of Annecy, as well as firefighters specialized in mountain terrain and dog searches. The helicopter of the Civil Security of Annecy was also requisitioned to fly over the sector in search of the missing young man.

    Quentin Huck, a 25-year-old Berjallian, has not given any news to his family since Sunday morning when he warned his father by SMS that he was going to hike. Worried not to have his son on the phone, the man multiplied the calls then gave the alert in the night.

    Monday morning, the young man did not show up for work and his telephone can not be located, the Bourgoin-Jallieu police station opens an investigation for disappearing alarming.

    The car of the disappeared, a Ford Fiesta black, is found during the day in the car park of the Martinet, at the end of the road Combe d’Ire, on the border between the communes of Chevaline and Doussard, Haute-Savoie.

    The place is known for being the starting point of many excursions in the massif of Bauges. It was also here that, on September 5, 2012, the “Chevaline massacre” took place and that the bodies of three British and a Savoyard were found, riddled with bullets.

    The most probable hypothesis remains, of course, that of a hiking accident. The area is popular with fans of walking and free flying. The research is concentrated in the sector of the point of Flat Bench, at 1907m of altitude, on the border between Savoie and Haute-Savoie. A walking itinerary on which the young man had inquired several times.

    Too bad that you guys, like MI5 and Special Branch, forgot about Khalid Masood with whom he was apparently raning away with about Jews and Israelis on all those Islamic chatrooms..

    While Saad went off to his wrongful murder, Masood lived to kill another day.

      • Trowbridge H. Ford

        And as anyone should know such moderation just limits legitimate inquires and discussions, as other posters possibly don’t realize what is going on.

        Censorship of anything which might be true is wrong.

      • Trowbridge H. Ford

        Sure seems so with the investigators into Masood’s crimes claiming that he acted alone in now the five murders in the Westminster Bridge attacks, and asking for information about why he might have done so, at least with Saad, without any mention of his using various aliases, and likely visiting islamic chatrooms with anti-Israeli rants which GCHQ should have recorded.

    Just a quick drive-by as very limited access at the moment.

    A thought occurs, EM stated that LMC was circulating in the combe ‘around three’. Taking this literally, LMC could have been out of the combe shortly after three. As could ONF2(*) . . .

    A ‘slot’ would have been opened up in the timeline, such that a vehicle could have gone (back) up the combe without being seen.

    * The ONF2 pair only claimed to have seen SM, not specifying where. It could be down near Arnand.

  • Good In Other Parts

    Quick post – limited web access.

    Claude Antoine looks like a key witness in my humble opinion. Check out his press interview(s).

    With the benefit of hindsight, he is very obviously not stating ‘something’ that he saw.

    He also advocates an egress over the ridge to Giez using the track that no-one mentions (other than him obviously).
