Lake Annecy Murders: Sylvain Mollier’s ‘double-life’ and Saad al-Hilli’s French home

by | 26th, September 2012

WHAT news of the Lake Annecy murders, the deaths of four people in a pretty part of Alpine France? Well, not much. The press are leading with the bigger news that Government Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell might have called a policeman a pleb as he tried to ride his bicycle through the Downing Street gates. He never was shot dead. A cyclist named Sylvain Mollier was.

A few days ago, Lt Colonel Benedict Vinnemann, posited the idea that M. Mollier might not have happened upon the scene of carnage while on a bike ride – Saad al-Hilli, 50, his wife Iqbal, 47, and his mother-in-law Suhaila al-Allaf, 74, were all murdered. He might have been a target. But, then, so might have been Suhaila al-Allaf or Iqbal al-Hilli. Have you seen photographs in the press of either of them? What about one of M. Mollier? No. All we have is an old snapshot of Mr al-Hilli.

Says Vinnemann:

“Was the al-Hilli family the main target? Was it not the cyclist? Only ongoing work on the scene can answer this question clearly. We’re talking about someone whom everybody says was a gentleman, but who’s to say he did not lead a double life?”

A double life? Or a single life that we don’t know about? It’s all a bit lazy, isn’t it, for the police to suggest the dead man might have been up to something.

M. Mollier was an employee of Cezus, a firm that make the zirconium metalworking for nuclear fuel containers. It sounds interesting. But the police have presented nothing to say that work is linked to the case.

M. Mollier has been buried in the village of Ugine. He was buried “in the strictest privacy“.

M. Mollier, 45, leaves behind his partner, the mother of their first child who was born on June, and two children from his previous marriage.

In other news, Mr Al-Hilli has a home on rue l’Amiral Courbet, in the suburb of Saint-Macaire (South Gironde).

We also missed this in the Daily Mirror:

To his wealthy neighbours, Saad al-Hilli was a devoted family man. But behind closed doors he is said to have spent hours on his computer bombarding Arabic chatrooms with anti-Israeli posts. Now one of Saad’s oldest friends believes he and his dentist wife Ikbal, 47, and her mother Suhaila Al Saffar, 74, could have paid a high price for his rants… in an execution by the feared Israeli secret service Mossad.

Mossad is F4 on any conspiracy theorist’s keyboard:

Tonight Gary Aked, who had known Saad for nearly 20 years, is being ­questioned by two Surrey police officers about his explosive new clues to the ­killings, which are contained in chatroom and online forum messages posted by Saad showing the dangerous depths of his hatred.

Gary, 52, became a close friend of Iraqi-born Saad after meeting him in 1993 when they worked for the same engineering firm. They even went on holiday together.

Says Mr Aked:

“He was a difficult man to get to know, but I did over the years…The one thing that always worried me about him was how vocal he was on internet chatrooms about Iraq and also the Arab-Israeli conflict. He would forever be talking about how the Israelis were taking over the world and specifically taking over America. He hated Israeli Jews taking big banks and strongholds in America. He thought 9/11 was an inside job by the Israelis to create hatred against the Arabic nations. After 9/11 his involvement in chatrooms increased dramatically. He was very passionate about his beliefs. He didn’t believe the Jews should be in Israel…When I heard Saad and Ikbal had been murdered my first thought was, “What has he said? What has he done?’ I think it’s possible he has offended someone and Mossad has taken offence and put a hit out on him.”

Because Mossad murder everyone who says bad things about Jews.

Such are the facts.
