It has taken four hours to reach the point with ‘Ma Bell’ that there is recognition of a problem with Sympatico. I was told it would take another 2 to 3 business day for the email experts to address the problem!! I am expecting it to be addressed no later than tomorrow morning. Meanwhile all I can suggest is that you draft and save your comments and then keep trying. Some seem to have made it through. I am able to see that someone is trying to post a comment on Father George Smith, and others on Father Hod Marshall, and another on Father Eric Dejaeger. I can’t see what the text is, only that those comments are queued. My apologies. There is nothing I can do about it until the email experts get to work.
Canada’s fugitive Oblate is back on the Interpol wanted list!
Pictures of clerical molester Father Eric Dejaeger are posted on the “Wanted” section of the Interpol website: http://www.interpol.int/public/Data/Wanted/Notices/Data/2010/58/2010_26658.asp
Dejaeger fled Canada for his native Belgium in or about June 1995. A warrant was issued for his arrest in July 1995. An Interpol warrant was issued 03 May 2001. The warrant disappeared from the Interpol site and recent attempts to learn if it was still in force were unsuccessful.
So, there it is. Dejaeger is certainly on the Interpol wanted list.
Dejaeger is actually on Interpol’s “Red Notice” list which, according to the site is: “To seek the provisional arrest of a wanted person with a view to extradition based on an arrest warrant or court decision.”
Also on the Interpol site is the following information about an Interpol Red Notice
An Interpol Red Notice is not an international arrest warrant.
These Interpol ‘Red Notices’ represent only a tiny fraction of the number of red notices issued by Interpol.
The persons concerned are wanted by national jurisdictions (or the International Criminal Tribunals, where appropriate) and Interpol’s role is to assist the national police forces in identifying or locating those persons with a view to their arrest and extradition.
These red notices allow the warrant to be circulated worldwide with the request that the wanted person be arrested with a view to extradition.
A distinction is drawn between two types of red notice: the first type is based on an arrest warrant and is issued for a person wanted for prosecution; the second type is based on a court decision for a person wanted to serve a sentence.Warning
The person should be considered innocent until proven guilty.
If any member of the public has any information about one of the wanted persons, they should not contact the General Secretariat directly, but contact the police in the place where the person has been located or identified.
An official Interpol Wanted Fugitives list is maintained on the Interpol website. This information may be copied and distributed. However, it must be clearly stated that this list represents a very small proportion of the full list – only those notices approved for public dissemination appear on the web site. Any unauthorised alteration of any portion of Interpol Wanted Fugitives notices is considered as a violation and subject to legal prosecution.

General conditions of use
My understanding is that police in Belgium have been advised of Dejaeger’s whereabouts. If I hear otherwise I will certainly contact them to let them know that there is a clerical fugitive from justice in their backyard. As I see it, if all goes according to Hoyle and the Belgian police does its job Dejaeger should be arrested and, by the grace of God, extradited.
We shall see…
