Why was one child favoured as poster child for the hoax?

As we’ve pieced together a more complete timeline of the Hampstead SRA hoax, one thing that’s become apparent is that when given a choice, Abraham Christie and Ella Gareeva tended to allow Sabine and Belinda’s conspiracy-minded friends to interview RD’s son rather than his daughter.

For example, we noticed that when Brian Gerrish was permitted access to the children, presumably to examine the merchandise before broadcasting the story, he mentions only having spoken to the little boy.

Similarly, we know that when Finn Hagan was questioning the little girl, he cut his questions short as soon as he heard an adult approaching. He abruptly stopped talking and stuffed his phone into his pocket without turning it off. This provided us with what we call “the pocket tape”, a revealing bit of dialogue which you can read about here. It seems that he knew he wasn’t meant to be speaking to the girl, and didn’t want to be caught out.

This made us wonder: did Abe and Ella think that the boy would be a more eloquent poster child for their hateful campaign of lies? And if so, why?

‘You have to tell the truth’

Judging by the videos of the children, it seems quite clear that the little girl was much more resistant to Abe’s torture techniques. He mentions when speaking to Jean-Clement that “she’s a liar”, almost as if to inoculate his brother-in-law from any inconvenient inconsistencies in her story.

And then there’s a sad little 35-second video in which the little boy begs his sister to go along with Abe’s storyline:

Q: Please, tell the truth. Please! [P], please! Just tell the truth.

Q: Look, they’re not here yet. They’re not here. Look, nobody’s touching me. We’re now with Mum and uncle. Please tell the truth, [P]. It’s really important.

Q: If you won’t tell the truth you will get yourself in big trouble, yourself. Into deep trouble, yourself. So please tell the truth. [inaudible] uncle says, tell the truth, okay?

In the next video, which lasts 55 seconds, the little boy continues, with a bit more urgency in his voice, this time with Abraham coaching from off camera:

Abraham: Say that again.

Q: P.. Papa is not here…look…Abraham is here, [P]…[P]…
Where is papa? Look. This is not papa, [P]. [P], that’s not papa…And just tell the truth…Please. [P], we can tell the truth….Look, is this your, is this papa? Is this [RD]? No. So, look… Don’t… Mum and papa are protecting you and to help you protect yourself and to protect them and to protect all of us… The group…
If the group lies…things will start to pack and roll and you might broke a glass…You might hurt yourself.

Abraham: What about the babies?

Q: …And you might get your bag of payment for the babies. You might get killed by somebody.

Clearly, the little girl isn’t interested in repeating the story yet again, but the boy seems genuinely concerned for her safety if she doesn’t comply. Is this because he knows Abe will hurt them if she doesn’t co-operate, or because he genuinely believes the story himself?

We know that in the third round of police interviews, while the little girl was quite forthcoming and angry about Abe having forced her to say terrible things about her father, teachers, classmates, and their parents, the little boy seemed to want to hang onto the story just a bit longer:

Q: Want to tell, Abraham he like accused me like, er, like when, um, he said does your Dad hurt you much…

S (Police officer): (yeah)

Q: …..does he hurt you really bad? And I say, no he doesn’t and he said yes he does and he accuses me.

S: OK. And then what happens?

Q: And then he says yes your Dad does hit you really hard. 

S: (yeah)

Q: And he says no he doesn’t hit me hard. He hits me softly….just to remind me.

S: OK. So, what was it, we talked in two other interviews before, didn’t we?

Q: (yeah)

S: Was what you told me the truth?

Q: Yeah

S: So all that stuff about the babies…

Q: (yeah)

S: And the church…

Q: (yeah)

S: and all that…

Q: No, no the babies, the babies, he um, no, well there is some of the babies killed, yep.

S: Okay, are you sure?

Q: Yes. But not much, not every single day, not every single day like killed, no, not like that.

As the interview progresses, he seems to drift in and out of Abe’s fantasy-world:

S: It’s okay, if it hasn’t happened it’s okay as long as we talk about it now. Okay?

Q: Yeah. So I lied about it, no because he made me say it.

S: So I, so, there’s two things. So first of all  you say you lied… So are…let me just be clear. Are babies being killed or not?

Q: No.

S: So they’re not.

Q: No, he made me say it.

S: Who’s he? Who made you say it?

Q: Abraham.

S: How did he make you say it?

Q: When I said…when I, when he asked me, ‘Is any baby killed?’ I said no there isn’t and then he says yes there is, he’s like accusing me of my Dad killing me, of me of him helping me killing babies.

S: Okay, what about all the secret rooms in these houses and places?

Q: No.

S: Are there any secret rooms?

Q: Ss..not much. Well there is, yeah, not much, not much, no.

False memories in the making?

The little boy’s confusion is completely understandable.

He has just spent four weeks holed up with his sister, his mother, and his mother’s boyfriend, being dragged out of bed in the middle of the night for repeated grilling sessions, being beaten and kicked, having water poured on him whilst he knelt in his underpants.

And all the while, he was being told that his own thoughts and memories were wrong and invalid, and that he must now believe in a terrifying alternate reality where babies are murdered and eaten, and hundreds of people “do sex” to him with plastic willies.

For a small child, this must have seemed completely incomprehensible and bewildering. Most children hold the view, rightly or wrongly, that the adults around them are the arbiters of truth—so if Abe and Ella were telling him, repeatedly and adamantly, that their father was forcing him to kill babies and eat them, then perhaps they were correct?

It’s entirely possible that for a time at least, the little boy became confused about what he actually did remember. We know that one way in which false memories can be “implanted” is via constant repetition and questioning, creating confusion and distress in the victim, who begins to doubt their own memories and begins to replace them with fabrications.

If this was the case with the little boy, though, what stopped his sister from going down the same route?

It’s difficult to speculate about that, but one factor could be what Abe and Ella described as her stubbornness and unwillingness to go along with the programme. She was the older sibling, and had had many conflicts with her mother in the past—so in some ways it’s possible that she was more adept at defending herself against Abe and Ella’s assaults on her sanity during the Morocco trip.

According to memory specialist Dr Elizabeth Loftus, studies have shown that it’s possible to induce false memories in adults—but not all adults, and not all the time:

Despite the ethical limitations imposed on laboratory studies of artificially created memories,  research showed that creating false memories of a relatively benign childhood experience, i.e., becoming lost in a shopping mall as a young child was easily induced. In other studies, even much more extreme example of false memories (eg., spilling punch on the bride’s parents at a family wedding or nearly drowning as a child) could be induced in as many as a quarter of the subjects tested. Even in subjects who failed to develop a complete false memory, partial recall could be induced in nearly half of all research subjects.

We don’t know for certain that what happened to RD’s son comes under the heading of “false memory”. It’s possible that he didn’t fully believe in the grotesque lies Abe and Ella drilled into the children, but felt more compelled to hang onto them than his sister did, once they were safely out of Abe and Ella’s reach. As the younger sibling, it’s possible that he hadn’t had quite as much time to develop the defences which his sister had.

However, whether he fully believed the stories or not, it’s clear that Abe and Ella felt that the little boy could be relied upon to speak to strangers about the hoax, while it might be best to let his sister remain in the background. Fortunately for both children, once they were removed from Ella’s custody, the little girl spoke out angrily against their captors, thus ensuring that Ella would not regain control over them ever again.child sexual abuse 2

  1. Excellent observations in this post, EC.

    I always thought it was sad watching a young boy get asked if there were any babies killed, only to hear him say “No, well… some”. The hoaxers cling to this.

    To me the boy was caught between wanting to please two adults, fearing consequences from Abe and wanting to tell the truth to the member of the Child Abuse Investigation team.

  3. Heartbreaking and I remember feeling the same heavy thud, when I first heard all of the videos…..armed as I was, with knowledge of the vile and viral behaviour of the same players, dirty tricks, foul abuse, from the hollie hoax days, then as I’ve learned more of how much damage they’ve intentionally done to good groups, for years, shown clearly by their recent open attacks on me and Danny of Shatterboys……….. I really tried to inform the police but it is only now, perhaps, that there is enough, collated and with clarity now available, broadly painting the picture……… that the true conspiracy will be found to be created and energised by these so called conspiracy theorists…….they are conspiracy PRACTITIONERS……….

    And especially now, with even Miles Johnston showing his hand, again in the dirty pile of creeps and con artists, charlatans and therapists ready to tell survivors that their abuser was ……..take your pick….that the only way to heal is……… ? whichever route they can send you down, to one of theirs….all flavours available…….. Collaterol damage, people who realise are turned on, targeted, pushed over the edge if possible, addictions triggered and supplied in some cases……..abuse rampant from the predators hanging around anti child abuse events…… this is their target market……

    The children and people of Hampstead were collaterol damage to them, so what if property prices, say had fallen…….. there are some property developers as well as some millionaire energy something or other….in the background…….

    I was immediately and truly empathic to the people and children effected by this.

    Because they have put me and others through it before. I had really heard the innocent victims speak and have also heard and read thoroughly the actual evidence…….. I witnessed enough of the vile abuse heaped on people by Belinda and anyone like Brenda McNamara, mumsy…. viciously attacking anyone who didn’t buy into her obsessive posts about hollie as if anyone disputing the hoax was picking on the girl…..not that she was a girl anymore…and it’s left out that the reason she was in the RCJ was because of the abuse being done to Hollie by THEM !

    Robert Green and every person who has mentioned him at Fresh Start Foundation talks spins the old spiels and lies……….. He plead GUILTY ! and he has a LIFETIME GAGGING ORDER, so how come he and they are getting away with not just that, but also bringing up the Hampstead children, who deserve nothing less than absolute guarenteed privacy ……. so how come there is nothing in place to stop this perpetuating and them doing it all over again?

    I’ve been called many things, allsorts but they all seem to think satanism means automatically that a person following that path or religion, is evil…….. for people who go on about media mind control…they sure are allowing it to run the narrative, where that is concerned…..relying on fears drilled into some people, to motivate them and justify yourselves, is despicable…….and whether people like it or not, if people choose to follow satanism as a religion, they can…and what you are all doing, that spit this shit… is actually religious hatred…… and I for one will support any campaign to highlight this and fight for religious freedom….even tho I don’t class myself as religious, I reject it mostly, but I do have beliefs and spiritual understandings, practices which I am comfortable with………..

    What Hoaxtead Research has done is amazing. Today I am truly grateful for everyone who has shone a light on these cockroaches and shown up their hypocrisy so plainly. 🙂

  4. I think the girl realised more quickly that she could trust Steve Martin, and that she knew she did not have to go back……we wouldn’t hear that part…… the boy may have been really overwhelmed or the police may have left it to the girl to tell the boy…….. Steve would have kept that bit of the interview short as possible, for the younger child, who was clearly confused and tired, but there would have been more probably, but with expert trauma counsellors used by the police……….now, thankfully. Alot has been achieved over the decades…… It is sickening to read the comments by pushers for the hoax… there was a last interview where the boy said very strongly, that he NEVER wanted to go back with his mum, even if she got rid of Abe, he didn’t trust her to keep him away, that’s when the boy showed both relief and strength, he felt safe but he knew he would never be safe because ‘Abe will be back, no matter what she says’, that was heartbreaking, but he seemed really happy and not all concerned about where he was going……..

    That’s the kind of thing, obvious to people who really work on this issue.
    I have though, been shocked that given they were police interviews, how come they were not taken down ? Have the police even tried ? If not, why not ? Copyright would probably work fgs, stupid though and in such need of change are those rules, where I can lose my channel for copyright, but Angie and co can say whatever they like about whomever they please, with no real problem from YouTube, etc…..it needs a fix…. that, I hope will ‘fix the world’ a bit….. 🙂

  9. Thanks for the alert. Yes, I’ve been rather neglecting that dribbling swivel-eyed freak lately. So with that in mind I’ve just been through his FB page and taken a load of screenshots*, which have been added to his evidence folder accordingly (see 122-171):


    As well as the aforementioned Hampstead posts they include a number or sick, twisted ‘false flag’ posts too, so people can see the kind of person he is.

    Naturally I’ve endeavoured to obscure the children’s names and faces as appropriate (child abuser Kane posts them with gay abandon as always), as well as the names and faces of their classmates, their head teacher and the feller who runs the locksmith’s-cum-leather shop. But if anyone spots any I’ve missed, please let me know.

    You’ll see that some of the above screenshots also include comments from Slater’s creepy followers, including the terminally irritating Manuela Costa. These have been copied into the ‘Manuela Costa’ and ‘Random Twats & Psychos’ folders accordingly.

    I’ve reported some of Slater’s posts to Facebook but I won’t hold my breath on them taking any action. We’ve had quite a few successes where he’s concerned, to be fair, but at the same time I continue to be amazed by some of the jaw-droppingly disgusting Slater posts that they allow to stay up.

    *Note: screenshot 122 is from YouTube, where Slater goes by the name ‘Hampstead Cover-Up’.

  23. I think they were both very brave, but as someone pointed out to me in an email, another factor affecting the little boy’s compliance with Abe’s demands is that boys do mature emotionally a bit more slowly than girls. So while they were only a year and a bit apart in age, the difference in maturity could have been quite significant. Bullies like Abe will generally choose the “weaker link”, but I think that it’s a huge credit to the boy that he was able to begin the climb back to reality so quickly after they were free of Abe and Ella.

But posting such material in the United States is legal and this will continue to be the case for the foreseeable future under their first amendment. In the UK we can do nothing about that. What extra laws do you want see? A great government controlled UK firewall? The banning of VPNs? Outlawing of anonymous identities? The harm that would do would have catastrophic side effects, but I have seen elected UK politicians advocating all three.

    Existing laws should control such abuse and there are severe penalties including jail time. The real question is why the police and CPS don’t enforce them. That is where any ire should be directed.

Same goes for all local authority & community workers beavering away under difficult conditions with few thanks.

  33. Sadly it’s one of the worst aspects of the law.
    I’ve been deeply involved in two complicated cases as an aid and witness that were finally settled after years in the highest court in the land with a win by the plaintiffs.
    But winning in court is often just the beginning.
    People and defendants can breach court orders and there is no automatic way in which to correct this (except in criminal matters) unless the plaintiffs return to the court for redress which can involve heaps more expense that can often not be recouped.

    The other thing I have discovered: you can have a physical copy of a judgement handed down and show it to the police ( It’s amusing to watch FoTL advocates rave about documents in those eviction videos) and they often not only do not comprehend that document or, and this is obvious when you think about it, really cannot accept a piece of paper as proof of anything. Hence-more expense involved hiring a lawyer to help enforce that judgement and you really have to pick and choose your lawyers.

  37. She has a record of hiring forensic accountants and lawyers on a contingency basis. So far none of them have received their contingency payments, on account of the late Scot Young squirreling away his moneys so securely under many layers of other people’s names. She may have swallowed the ITNJ line of self-aggrandising bollox and believed their claims that they would be the ones to unravel the whole bezoar of deceit.

    And since the ITNJ are such wazzoccks and bumblefucks, they have evidently swallowed their own line of self-aggrandising bollox, and believe that they do have the forensic-accountancy skills — or that their judicial-gown dress-up games will prove an adequate substitute — and they will track down the missing money, or shame Russian gangsters into giving it back, therefore earning them a generous commission.

    Remember one of the issues that persuaded the US SovCits that the ITNJ was a scam?
    In July 2015, the case of a sitting ITNJ Law Commissioner came to the attention of Walsh, Stone, Cope and Rhoades, which outlined massive fraud that would be perfect for exposure of many corrupt corporations. In the letter, the Law Commissioner stated 1/3 of any financial judgment in her favor would be paid to the Australian team for their efforts and requested a call be had as soon as possible between the parties to discuss.

    …I rather suspect that the missing Young millions was what Stone et al. were salivating over.
