Can’t say I’m really up to speed on Ben Fellows so when the email came, I had to Google him and immediately, Leveson came up. At first I didn’t see any trusted blog but then caught sight of Max Farquar, a good lad and so this might bring you up to speed if you’re not already:
Today’s message is that he has now gone missing. Best I just reprint it:
We have been in contact with whistleblower Ben Fellows’ wife on the disappearance of her husband. Please read the following article and get this out to as many people as possible, we all want Ben to return to his family safely.
At the recent UK Column conference, Ben was informed by Dave Eden, a former CID detective, that his wife was in immediate danger as a result of Ben’s work. It was made clear that Ben should have an “exit strategy”.
On Thursday 23rd of May, after the attacks in Woolwich (approximately half a mile from the Fellows residence), Ben and his wife returned home from visiting friends to find that their flat had been broken in to. Nothing appeared to be stolen.
At 11:30pm that evening, the phone rang and an anonymous man told Ben to look outside his window to the other side of the street. A man in a black ski mask stood there on a mobile phone, the caller said “What happened to that soldier today is what is going to happen to you”
By the 28th of May, Ben and his wife decided to leave London and to drive to a safe house. On arrival to the safe house, the couple were told that the safe house had been compromised, so Ben decided to leave on his own for fear of harm coming to his wife. He arranged to stay with a friend at a location known to Ben and his Wife.
However, nothing has been heard from Ben since he left on the 28th of May. This morning (3rd of June), Ben Fellows’ wife received word from the friend whom Ben was to stay with, who alerted her that Ben never arrived.
We are now attempting to contact various resources to see if anyone in the intelligence network has any details on Ben’s location.
If you have any information on Ben, please contact us in complete confidentiality.
UK Column I think is Brian Gerrish and co, I’ve heard some strange things about them but on the whole they seem to stand up. Max certainly does. Now he could have just gone to ground, Ben – I certainly would but then again, it might be something more nefarious.
The important thing, it seems to me, is not for us to say but for us to publicize that this appears to have happened, might have happened. Even if it turns out otherwise, they’ll know we’re onto them across the net, which is possibly one of the things they’re monitoring.
If you feel you can, publicize this, if only to point out that we can network near instantly, even if we might not agree across the board on all issues.
