Based on the following investigative article, the setup of Heinz-Christian Strache in Ibiza was a freelance project that finally found a buyer just before the European Parliamentary elections.
Ibiza Connection — The Whole, Unique, Incredible Story
May 27, 2019
EU-Infothek first reported on this matter on May 20, 2019. A few days later EU-Infothek was first to reveal the puppet-masters, namely the Vienna Attorney Ramin Mirfakhrai and the detective Julian Hessenthaler.
On account of media pressure arising from these revelations, one of those involved in the early phase of producing this video contacted channel 24 and confirmed the EU-Infothek reports, especially the identity of the attorney and the detective.
The broad media coverage in Austria and Germany brought EU-Infothek several thousands of communications daily, including some interesting pointers. As already reported on May 24th, one insider contacted us and promised further details.
Just as ZDF [Second German Television] was packing up their camera after an interview with EU-Infothek, one of the most important figures in the affair phoned us in answer to our public request for information. This developed into a first and, in retrospect, somewhat humorous contact and dialogue.
Insider: So What do you want from me?
EU-Infothek: Credible information that you met yesterday in Munich with a representative of one of the largest media companies in Germany, which also publishes a newsmagazine. That you asked €300,000 for further information.
That was the beginning of a wonderful information chain
This obviously honest reaction led to an hours-long personal conversation near the German border with two of the most important persons from inner security circles, who had participated in the sale of the video. Here is the whole story as credibly told by insiders.
Until sometime around the turn of the year 2014/2015, more than a dozen security people from Austria, Germany and the Balkans, from a joint firm, were working very successfully with prestigious international concerns. They solved problems connected with cigarette smuggling, corrupt practices in awarding commissions, etc. However, they were then implicated in a big industrial espionage scandal involving an internationally active Upper Austrian industrial enterprise. After the scandal leaked out, the security firm lost all business from well-known firms. After millions in earnings, bankruptcy was imminent.
One of the partners in the security firm, Mr. Sascha Wandl, has to appear in circuit court in Krems at the end of July to answer a charge of libel. A witness in this trial is the now familiar detective Julian Hessenthaler. In the criminal trial in Austria, all charges against the industrial enterprise and all others involved were dropped.
Sascha Wandl lost his nerve and, in a 15-page exhaustive confession/self-indictment through Mag. Sebastian Lesigang, identified all the participants and their activities to authorities, thereby making himself some “friends for life.”
The Business Model
During the years from 2015 to 2017, the hard core of experienced mercenaries together with attorney Ramin Mirfakhrai of the security firm came to the conclusion that it was necessary to develop and implement a new business model. The problem of a political party or a company would be addressed, and the “solution” produced. The finished product would then be offered for sale to the political group or party.
In 2017, several circumstances coincided favorably for the implementation of the business idea of the four security musketeers. One member of a security detail who was very close to H. C Strache found himself compelled to volunteer to Mirfakhrai running commentary on the habits, comments, preferences, weaknesses and contacts of his highly-placed boss. Without having to pay for it, the attorney learned in precise detail everything about Strache and his intimate environment. 24/7.
The second fortuitous circumstance was that the Strache intimate and friend Mag. Johann Gudenus (aristocratic bloodline, graduate in law of the Moscow Diplomatic University) inherited a forest property with private hunting rights in Krems Valley, ca. 20 kilometers north of Krems.
An attractive Serbian-born female real estate agent, who was personally acquainted with the Gudenus family, spoke to him about commissioning her to sell the estate. EU-Infothek reported on it. An information center was established in the office of the Viennese attorney: 24-hour reports on Strache, personal contact to Gudenus through the property sale. The attorney and his friends from security made use of the information and the contacts. The idea was rapidly conceived to feed this fresh information on Strache (at that time, FPÖ [Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs, Austrian Freedom Party] party leader and member of parliament, but not vice chancellor) into one common comprehensible document/video.
The business model was implemented, as reported by EU-Infothek.
A recent rumor that Gudenus received €200,000 from the alleged niece of a Russian oligarch as down-payment on the property is just a rumor and not supported by any facts.
