Lafarge suspected of cement support for Daesh


The judges leading the La Farge investigation and specifically tasked with examining the conduct of the cement company Lafarge with its factories in Syria, have put the multinational company under inquiry on four counts:
• for “violating an embargo”
• “endangering the lives of others” and
• “financing a terrorist enterprise” and
• “being an accomplice to crimes against humanity”.

Straying wildly beyond the facts that they were instructed to investigate into, the judges are trying to establish the following:
• Did Lafarge buy the raw materials coming from the quarries that were under the controlled of the jihadists?
• Did Lafarge sell cement to distributors linked to the jihadists.

Thus the judges have also decided to inculpate the person responsible for security at La Farge’s factory in Syria, the Norwegian Jacob Waerness. Le Monde characterized him as being nothing more than a witness. However, the truth is that Jacob has been charged with helping Daesh construct underground infrastructures.

This is exactly what Thierry Meyssan exposed in his book Sous nos yeux. Du 11-Septembre à Donald Trump that was launched nearly a year and a half ago in (pp 89-90; and p 250) and in an article that he wrote for Voltairenet published towards the end of March 2017 in 10 different languages [1].

This matter is a long way off from being a res judicata. The judges have not yet established Lafarge’s former links with Hillary Clinton and Nato nor the support of the multinational for the military genius of Daesh.
