Italian police arrested 18 individuals for allegedly brainwashing children into thinking that their parents abused them in order to sell them to “foster parents” (abusers). The network included the mayor of Bibbiano, doctors, psychotherapists, and social workers. According to Italian media, the transactions involving children amounted to hundreds of thousands of Euros. Furthermore, it was discovered that some of the foster parents were sexually abusing the children they bought.
The network used horrific techniques to brainwash children – all of which are used in Monarch Programming.
“To brainwash the children, those arrested allegedly forged child-like drawings with sexual connotations and used electroshock therapy as a “little memory machine” to create fake abuse memories, while the therapists are accused of dressing up as “wicked” children’s story characters.”

After selling the children, the network stored the gifts and the letters sent to the children by their biological parents in a warehouse that was discovered by police.
Codenamed “Angels and Demons”, the investigation began in 2018 and revealed that the network operated under the pretenses of helping children in difficult situations by placing them in foster families. However, the scheme was essentially a front for child trafficking. An article in the Corriere della Sera newspaper explains how any excuse was used to remove children from their families in order to justify their abduction and brainwashing. Here’s a free translation:
“They removed them from their families using an emergency measure, supported by signs of suffering but almost never abuse. Any discomfort expressed by minors was enough to remove them from their parents. A pretext was enough, a simple suspicion, like the moans of a child while she was in the bathroom, would cause social workers to accuse parents of sexual abuse.”
Police declined to say how many children were involved, or of what age.
