We admit it, we’re puzzled.
The ‘new’ video that Abrella have released on their blog and YouTube, consisting of the recording made by Abe’s brother-in-law on 4 September, 2014, contains many fascinating glimpses into the Hampstead hoax…but they don’t play in Abrella’s favour.
As we mentioned yesterday, the video contains a stunning and very disturbing clip of Abe leading RD’s children in a rousing cheer of “Kill the babies! Kill the babies!”
This in itself provides sufficient evidence of coaching to kill the hoax dead.
But there’s more, far more. Here’s a small sampling:
Threats and corrections
Right off, Abe threatens the little girl, asking the brother-in-law (a community police volunteer) whether he has room in the jail to lock her up tonight. “Have you got room in the jail to lock her up tonight? Have you got room, yes or no?…You deserve to be locked up”.
He then prompts the children to start telling the story. When they forget a detail, he aggressively corrects them: “We put on our hand…” “NO. He PUT your hand on.” When they go in directions he doesn’t want them to go, he tells them to be quiet, and takes over the narrative himself.
He grills the children, taking them through the litany they’ve obviously been rehearsing. It sounds like some sort of macabre classroom, with the teacher drilling the children on facts they’ve been taught, and the children chorusing back the answers.
Listening to the children, it’s very clear that they’re trying their best to please Abe: they talk over each other, vying to be first to answer. Knowing what we do now about Abe’s methods of ‘teaching’, this really should come as no surprise: the children know that if they answer incorrectly, they’ll be beaten, burnt, suffocated, threatened with being buried alive.
How big is this thing, anyway?
Abe seems fixated on adding as many people to the ‘cult’ as he can. At about 6 minutes in, the children claim that Ella’s older son is not only a cult member, but ‘does sex to them’. According to Abe, “all three children are involved in this cult”. Later, Abe claims that not only RD’s, but Ella’s own solicitor is also a cult member; he says he doesn’t trust any solicitors, except his own. “But they’re criminal,” he says, noting that they’ll defend him, but they have nothing to do with family court.
Why did they take the kids to Morocco?
According to Abe, he’s aware that he and Ella had no business taking the children out of the UK, since RD has the right to see the children every two weeks: “So we’ve broken the [court] order, but we had to take them to make sure they were safe”.
This is most curious: Abrella have long insisted that they only learned of the alleged cult while they were on holiday with the children in Morocco; yet here, Abe states that they knew the children were in danger, and needed to remove them to ensure their safety. Which is it, then?
Abe’s psychological state
Throughout the video, Abe’s speech is pressurised: urgent, rapid, excited, with frequent repetitions of key words and phrases. He’s jumpy—”Jean-Clement, what’s that noise? It’s bothering me!”—and obviously agitated: “I haven’t had any sleep. It’s my birthday, and I haven’t slept!”
At about 51 minutes, Abe says, “Look at me, look at me, I came from the airport like this!”. He says he has not had time for a shower, although “the mother has time for these things….but this is the children’s welfare”. As we’ve stated in the past, we’re no psychologists, but as we listen to his strangely pressured speech, his frantic obsession with his story, we have to wonder whether he might in fact be suffering from some sort of manic episode.
As for that story, it keeps changing, as though he’s making it up on the fly:
At about 13:30, when J-C asks why they didn’t just stay in Morocco and report the problem from there, Abe states that he and Ella wanted to bring the children to see Jean-Clement that night, but then leave again for Morocco straight away. This is sheer madness, as is Abe’s apparent belief that J-C has the power to actually conduct the investigation and arrest those involved. And Abe later contradicts himself, stating that he needs to go to Ella’s and get the locks changed. Why would he bother with this if he no intention of staying in London?
It’s all about the fame
As we’ve mentioned previously, Abrella have revealed their intentions and agenda slowly, but at about 29 minutes Abe is quite clear: he states that if Jean-Clement cannot help them with this, he will write a book about it. In other words, the point is to get maximum public exposure. This makes sense in light of Abe’s recent attempts to present himself as a nutritional hemp expert, à la David Avocado Wolfe.
Producing the ‘evidence’
Abe plays some of the homemade videos back for J-C, but unlike the versions that were later released by Sabine, in this version you can hear Abe and Ella coaching them: At about 38 minutes, while the children are describing how they feel ‘weak’ when they eat meat rather than hemp, Ella says, “Say it again, please. Look at me….Look at the camera”. The child repeats the statement, and Ella says, “Look at the camera…good”.
This brings up a question we’ve wondered about: why were the original videos produced in a series of short bursts, produced in airports and parking lots en route from Morocco back to London? Why not sit down with the children in a quiet place (and according to Abe, his friend’s farm was ‘nice and quiet’), and let the children tell their story, in their own words, with minimal interruption?
The J-C video answers this question: it’s clear from listening to this 3-hour-long epic that the children cannot manage all of the story at once, without frequent prompts and interruptions from Abe and/or Ella. They can do it (albeit as though they’re telling about a story they’ve read, not something that’s happened to them) in short bursts, but not as an integrated whole.
Why release this now?
As commenter Danielle George noted yesterday,
The hoaxer crew are definitely starting to give up the ghost, methinks. I’ve been doing some reckying:

And great work, everyone else too!
With their hoax crumbling around them, Abrella must feel under pressure to produce something, anything, to keep the thing alive.
They chose this video because it’s the last weapon in their depleted arsenal. Sadly, it’s not merely a damp squib; it’s a suicide bomb, with more than enough firepower to kill what’s left of Abrella’s grotesque hoax.
Please note: We have deliberately omitted the link to this video on Abrella’s blog. The video contains images and names of both children, as well as of multiple innocent children, parents, teachers, clergy, and business people in Hampstead, so we cannot in good conscience link to it here.
