     News: Victim of Belgian paedophile Dutroux tells her story

    Agence France-Presse English Wire: BRUSSELS, Oct 27 (AFP) - A young woman, abducted when she was 12 by the Belgian paedophile, rapist and murderer Marc Dutroux, recounts her ordeal in a book to appear Thursday, the day of her 21st birthday, her Parisian publishers said.

    Sabine Dardenne was 12 when she was seized by Dutroux on May 28, 1996 in western Belgium as she cycled to school. In August of that year she was discovered hidden in a cellar in a house owned by Dutroux in the south of the country, with another young girl, aged 15.

    Police later found the bodies of four other young girls in houses belonging to Dutroux.

    "If I have had the courage to relive this ordeal, it is above all so that some judge should not again free paedeophiles halfway through their jail terms and with no kind of preacution," she writes.

    "I needed this account so people should stop looking at me strangely."

    Sabine's strength of character made a deep impression on Belgian public opinion when she gave evidence at Dutroux's trial.

    In June Dutroux was given a life sentence after the most publicised trial in Belgian history.

    In the 1980s he carried out several rapes and kidnappings and in 1989 was given a 13 and half year prison term, only to be granted early release.

    Sabine's book will be published in 30 countries.

    The Obscenity of the feminine sex is that of everything which "gapes open." It is an appeal to being as all holes are. In herself woman appeals to a strange flesh which is to transform her into a fullness of being by penetration and dissolution... -Jean Paul Sarte, Being and Nothingness (1943)

    I'd rather go down in history as one lone Negro who dared to tell the government that it had done a dastardly thing than to save my skin by taking back what I have said. I would consider it an honor to spend whatever years are necessary in prison as the one member of the race who protested, rather than be with all the 11,999,999 Negros who didn't have to go to prison because they kept their mouths shut. -Ida B. Wells-Barnett
