Yes indeed, Chaumeil was a very odd choice and he also behaved very oddly, threatening witnesses... He just barely escaped being thrown in jail. Read the court files.
It is my understanding that Chaumeil claims that his involvement with the case was due to his OTS 'expertise'...which is extremely interesting, given his views on space-men...
I also read these allegations...Does anybody know how true they might be?
M. Jean-Luc CHAUMEIL came to me on Sept. 13th to try to convince me that his thesis and the one of his accomplices judge Luc FONTAINE, police officer Gilbert HOUVENAGHEL, and psychiatrist Jean-Marie ABGRALL was the right one. And M. Jean-Luc CHAUMEIL, before 5 witnesses (2 lawyers, including Maitre Sabine PAUGAM, a judiciary police officer, a TV journalist equipped with a discrete cassette recorder, and our friend Joël LABRUYERE) ended his intervention during this private meeting (that he was informed of through tapped telephones), by threathening me that he would "get back to me" in case I was ever doubting his claims.
I must add that on this day, this same M. CHAUMEIL, who tried to intimidate me by his presence, looked terrified himself and I will not mention how confused his speech was.
Of course, a proceedings will begin against M. CHAUMEIL, for threats, by Maîre Jean-Pierre JOSEPH of the Grenoble Bar, Maître Sabine PAUGAM and Maître Igor de PLATER as witnesses.
I may have this wrong, but wasn't J-L C a one time member of the OTS, which is why he is classed as a witness?
I can't confirm that but I did read this...
Since 1995, the French police (Cdr Gilbert HOUVENAGHEL, Judiciary Police), the examining magistrate Luc FONTAINE (Vice-President of the Grenoble's Great Proceedings Tribunal), the two judiciary "experts" in this matter, the spy-journalist Jean-Luc CHAUMEIL and the psychiatrist Jean-Marie ABGRALL, manipulate information as well as the judiciary investigation, in order to hide to the civil parties and to the public opinion the reality of the facts and lead them to believe in an indefensible theory of "esoteric suicide". This theory is used to hide a knowingly wanted real premeditated murder by individuals totally alive today and known to the justice.
IMHO all of this is very relevant, simply because Chaumeil is the lead Sion skeptic cheerleader...
