The following report by Ezra Levant of TheRebel.media discusses the case of a culture-enriching young man named Walid Mustapha Chalhoub, who groomed underage girls in Quebec and turned them into his sex slaves. Mr. Chalhoub — who has now pleaded guilty to the charges against him — was a predator whose modus operandi was remarkably like that of the grooming gang in Rotherham, even though the scope of the operation in Quebec was more modest.
Most major Canadian media outlets ignored this story. I wouldn’t have known anything about it if Vlad hadn’t kept me informed:
Below are excerpts from two news articles on the same topic. First, from The Montreal Gazette:
Trial: Chalhoub Claimed He Was a Murderer to Extort Sex From Teenagers
Walid Mustapha Chalhoub is accused of sexually abusing 12 young girls, 10 of whom were minors, between 2011 and 2013. Montreal police
A Montreal man charged with sexually assaulting several teenagers after convincing them they were contractually obligated to have sex with him, claimed he was in the Mafia and a murderer in order to intimidate his victims, a court heard Wednesday.
Walid Mustapha Chalhoub, 33, a resident of the Ahuntsic-Cartierville borough, is charged with sexual assault on eight minors and an 18-year-old woman he had previously dated. He faces 48 charges in all in a trial at the Montreal courthouse. That includes ten counts of sexual assault, two counts of armed sexual assault and 11 counts of extortion.
Quebec Court Judge Serge Boisvert heard testimony from two young women who were close friends when they decided to go to Chalhoub’s apartment in the borough because a schoolmate had told one of them Chalhoub had a way for them to make easy money. The women were 16 and 17 when they went to Chalhoub’s home in August 2013. Both gave the Montreal police videotaped statements, last February, in which they said Chalhoub was vague about the contracts he offered them. The statements were played for Boisvert before each witness testified.
The young women said they were given alcohol and offered marijuana when they arrived and found a small party in progress in Chalhoub’s apartment. As the night progressed people gradually left and Chalhoub talked of being a chauffeur for escorts, claimed he was part of the Mafia and boasted that he had killed people.
And from the CBC:
Trial Begins for Man Facing Charges of Sexual Assault, Pimping and Kidnapping
The trial of a man accused of assaulting 10 minors began yesterday at a courthouse in Montreal.
Walid Mustapha Chalhoub faces 48 charges, including sexual assault, pimping, extortion and kidnapping.
According to police testimony, Chalhoub allegedly attracted victims to his home by promising them jobs and cash.
Police allege Chalhoub then engaged in blackmail to extort money and force the teenagers to film sex tapes.
He is also alleged to have threatened to upload the sex tapes to the internet to extort more money.
A detective working on the case told the court the investigation began after a father called 911 to report his daughter’s disappearance.
That report led police to other alleged victims.
