Quote:
The kidnappers had not previously been known to police, he said.

"They are against the state and mobilised against what they call a health dictatorship," the prosecutor added. For them, he said, "children in care are unfairly taken from their parents".

Three of the arrested are described as known survivalists - a type of anti-state individual living on the fringe and often linked to the far right.

The suspects allege they were asked over the internet to carry out the plot.

Re: Kidnapped girl found in Switzerland

I saw this on the bluewin.ch website the other day and what I couldn't work out was why it was handed over to the Fribourg cantonal police. Still seems the first night they were in Fribourg canton so maybe that was why.

More info here in French.

Easy, the name of the child is Mia.

In a movie it would be unacceptable.

haha, I was thinking about the suspects planning the abduction over the internet. Did they use facebook groups? a whatsapp one? telegram? reddit? a BB-style forum like EF? usenet?

Re: Kidnapped girl found in Switzerland

Apparently it was all organised by an anti-mask conspiracy theorist from Malaysia.

(OK, not just anti-mask, that's just one of several nutjob theories he pushes).

FTFY.

Seems he's a French former politician who moved there.

The guy just uploaded a video to youtube congratulating the courage of the idiots carrying the kidnapping. Contemplate craziness before YT blocks the video



PS. I feel sorry for the idiots who follow a coward hiding thousands of km away, but to each his own...

Re: Kidnapped girl found in Switzerland

What I find strange is no mention of the father. Dead? Not interested in their child? Even if the mother was originally granted sole custody I would expect the father, assuming alive/interested, would also be shouting from the rooftops about his daughter being abducted. Yet not a word.
