Belgian Murderer Living In Thailand

Recommended Posts

Gangster wants new identity

BRUSSELS - Gangster and former state policeman Robert Beijer says he is willing to disclose details about the murder of Francis Zwarts 25 years ago. He will only talk however if the justice ministry agrees to give him a new identity.

Beijer was linked in the past with the Nivelles Gang, responsible for 28 deaths and a series of robberies and attacks in the first half of the 1980s.

Beijer is in Thailand and wants to return to Belgium. In exchange for a new identity he will tell authorities where to find Zwarts' body.

The gangster wants to negotiate with Justice Minister Laurette Onkelinx (Socialist Party PS) but she has refused so far.

Beijer is threatening to go to the press and reveal the location of Zwarts' body if Onkelinx continues to refuse to make any concessions.

============================================

Robert Beijer

From Wikipedia

Robert Beijer (born 1952) is a former gendarme with the Belgian Rijkswacht. He was convicted in 1995 for taking part in two murders.

Robert Beijer was born in Brussels. He started working for the Rijkswacht in 1970, and would eventually join the Bijzondere Opsporings Brigade (BOB), an investigative branch of the Rijkswacht, the former military police of Belgium. In that time the BOB experimented with new investigative methods used already by their American counterparts. Together with Madani Bouhouche, Beijer would develop illegal activities while on duty.

In 1983, Beijer would start the Agence de Recherches et d'Informations with Bouhouche, a private detective bureau. Beijer and Bouhouche would become suspects in the 1986 murder case of Juan Mendez, a Fabrique Nationale de Herstal engineer. After a diamond dealer was killed in Antwerp in 1989, Beijer and Bouhouche were sought again, and Beijer would be arrested again, after an exile period in Paraguay and Thailand.

A 1995 court would convict Beijer for his part in a 1982 security guard murder and the aforementiond diamond dealer murder. He would be released in 1999, after which he went to live in Thailand.

Beijer was at various times brought into relation with the Nijvel gang. He was never a suspect in this case though, although Beijer himself has claimed at various times to have more information, which he might eventually put to writing in a book.

Do I understand this properly?....he offers to tell where the body is,if given a new identity....then threatens to tell the press where the body is hidden,if not given a new identity!

I just finished living in Belgium for 4 years

Those 28 murders - robberies where they executed people lying on the ground are still played out in the papers every so often

If I remember correctly the robbers were bumping each other off too - this must be the body in the woods!

A Belgian member will know the story better

Well I am Belgian.I live in thailand and read belgian newspapers on internet.

Nothing about this last episode of the "tueries du Brabant Wallon" (Brussels suburb's killings) in these one the last days

Beyers was never convicted in these killings.Many rumors about the killings.Group of gangsters??? Right wings activists trying to destabilise Belgium???? foreing secret services trying same same????

No real clues after more than 20 years.Police still searching

Could devellop more but only rumors so not relevant I think

Anyhow Beyer's position is stupid.You have to give me a new identity or I don't speak to you,I speak to the medias :o

Beyers was never convicted in these killings.

But he was convicted of two other murders described above, yes?

Have you ever seen his picture? Surprisingly given all the google info on him, there's no photo. Is this him?

I'm unsure because it mentions other names and I've not found any online translater for Belgian to English.

btw, do you know of any? The AltaVista Babel Fish French to English doesn't work well and neither does the German to English. It's not the first time I've wanted something translated.

Have you ever read anything about where in Thailand he settled?

I wonder who the lucky person is that has him as a neighbor.... :o

Quite right, but anyhow I was of the perhaps naive belief, that Thailand would not let a convicted murdere stay here legally. :D

Who cares anyway ?

Naka.

Who died and made you god naka?

A lot of people do care , because these incidents almost paralyzed and destableized one of the wealthiest countries in the world.

Would like to see the responsible scum in a Thai prison.

Hi there Sriracha john.

Allow me to clarify something about Belgium :

There are 3 official language groups in Belgium i.e.

Flemish who speak dutch

Walloons who speak french

The people from the Eupen/Malmedy (german border) region who speak german.

So there is no Belgian language per se. Quite confusing isn't it?

Anyway we do make the best beer in the world. :D :D :D

Cheers

The article says he went to prison for "his part" in the murders, and he only served 4 years.

I think we need a little more information before condemning him to Thai prison.

His request/demands make him sound like a real dim bulb though.

Although I can't believe he's that stupid.....(I could be wrong)

Their could be another explanation for his statement about going to the media.

Perhaps the location of the body implicates someone in power?

It seems implied that the Justice Minister should be concerned about the body's location......perhaps someone close to her is implicated?

if the statement is right and he was born in 1952 the picture is either very old or its not him ,the guy in the picture is no way 55/56 years old ,if hes already served his time (4 years must have cop a deal) whats the problem with him being in thailand anyway...........
