France ‘Suppressed Reports of Gruesome Torture’ at Bataclan Massacre

France ‘Suppressed Reports of Gruesome Torture’ at Bataclan Massacre, by Louise Mensch.

A French government committee has heard testimony, suppressed by the French government at the time and not published online until this week, that the killers in the Bataclan appear to have tortured their victims on the second floor of the club.

The chief police witness in Parliament testified that on the night of the attacks, an investigating officer, tears streaming down his face, rushed out of the Bataclan and vomited in front of him just after seeing the disfigured bodies.

According to this testimony, Wahhabist killers reportedly gouged out eyes, castrated victims, and shoved their testicles in their mouths. They may also have disemboweled some poor souls. Women were reportedly stabbed in the genitals – and the torture was, victims told police, filmed for Daesh or Islamic State propaganda. For that reason, medics did not release the bodies of torture victims to the families, investigators said.

But prosecutors at the hearing claimed these reports of torture were “a rumor” on the grounds that sharp knives were not found at the scene.

The Germans kept the news of the New Year’s Eve sexual assaults in Cologne and Hamburg under under wraps, and when it leaked they claimed it was only hundreds of victims but it later turned out to be thousands. The British establishment managed to keep horrors such as Rotherham out of the media for over a decade.
