One aspect of this case that many people find completely perplexing is ‘why?’
What in the world would possess Abe and Ella to torture and torment Ella’s children into reciting this insanely improbable, logistically impossible story in the first place? Did they do it for money? For fame?
To a sane person looking into this for the first (or the one-thousandth) time, it just doesn’t make sense.
That’s why we were so pleased yesterday when long-time reader and regular commenter Emma very neatly summed up the underlying dynamics between Abe and Ella which sparked the Hampstead hoax in the first place. We liked it so much, we thought we’d share it with you.
Over to you, Emma!
At 1:26: 02 Ella says: “When the police investigation took place, I did make police aware that I have a lot of evidence: Well, I have videos, I have diary pages, I have drawings, and a few other things [what are those other things???]…”
This seems to tie in with the judgement paragraph below, that shows us that ideas were already forming in JULY…(The Abrella cue-card-script reminds us ‘we suspected, after all’) and, to further Abrella’s aims an evidence ‘bundle’ had then been prepared in Morocco—starting with the indoctrination via violence—in anticipation of the requirements ‘to substantiate their allegations’, to successfully ‘build a case’.
Of course Abraham has much experience in the criminal court system, but did not appreciate the points Sam makes , about the FAMILY court system, in a comment, above:
‘Also they are not very sophisticated. If it was that easy—just make videos full of accusations—anyone could end up in jail. In family court cases only interviews with children conducted under strict circumstances are accepted, after many great miscarriages of justice over the years. It’s the same in all Western countries where those techniques have been refined to get kids telling the truth and not what they think adults want to hear’.
So now we understand why the police did not give much credence to such ‘evidence’, although I believe one officer did watch [the videos], there is an entry in CRIS which suggests this, on p19.
From the judgement:
30. In August 2014, at a time when he was holiday in France, Jean-Clement Yaohirou received ‘phone calls and messages from Mr Christie in which he said he had information regarding the abuse of children. In evidence, Mr Yaohirou said that Abraham “had not been coming forward with specific information” but was “trying to give (him) justification.” Abraham Christie had said that a church, a school in Hampstead and a police station in Haringey were involved. Mr Yaohirou had asked whether Mr Christie “had evidence”. He said, “Yes;” and “that was it for July.”
Here we see A.B.E (Abraham) commenting on his own blog.
“After reading about the psychological warfare you [he thinks he’s talking to Ricky] waged upon Ella, because as a mother (Call it a mother’s intuition), she sensed that something wasn’t right, so she naturally sought to limit contact with you, I feel it is my duty to assist in your downfall“.
A commenter (on Abrella’s blog) picked this up and replied to this stunning admission:
“The last part is interesting because it suggests Abraham’s motive. That after reading/hearing that RD was aggressive with Ella, he feels he had a duty to help her stop RD having access…so coerced the children to lie”.
So Abraham felt, upon probable focussed whining by grand manipulator Ella, (pillowtalk) of her ‘big problem’ (read: grand narcissist wounded ego ‘problem’, having been left by her ex, [how dare he!], who needed punishing for that, forever), that he was DUTY BOUND to right the wrongs she was making up. See: Abraham…was “trying to give (him) justification.” in the judgement para 30, above.
Primitive lion Abe would also, according to HIS pathology, have been worried that this man RD would encroach on his new domain of control, his ‘new territory’. After all, he needed to manage and preserve this new source of income, home…and kids to violate. By his reckoning, the ‘RD elimination programme’ was going to be a win-win all round.
So, Ella would regard Abe as her hero at the end of this piece of ‘work’. The end justified the means. That was the fairy story they dreamt up and told each other in Morocco, and that they would live happily ever after. Probably.
