Neo-SSPX & Identity Theft?

Neo-SSPX & Identity Theft?
 I translated the article mentioned using google translate.


Managers of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X are accused of identity theft. They tried to fool the fundamentalist dissident priests.
The faithful of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Pius X (SSPX), which is part of the seminar Ecône-Valais winemaker Dominique Giroud, made headlines this summer for trying to hack into the computers of journalists who investigated him.
Today it appears that the highest levels of the traditionalist Fraternity resorted to similar methods in another matter entirely. As Le Tems learned, those responsible for the SSPX has usurped the identity of one of his priests on the Internet, and hacked the email account of one of his brothers, in the context of open ecclesiastical proceedings against him in 2013 for "acts sedition "by decree of the superior General of the SSPX, Bernard Fellay, a native of Valais. The record will already be in the hands of the French courts, having filed the complaint two priests, both French.
This affair has been the subject of an order book published in 2014 by Father François Pivert defender tried one of the priests. A work that meets the trial transcript father tried to P. (Father Pinaud blog-note), and the advertising did not exceed the circle of initiates.
The dispute stems from the crisis in the SSPX for several years. Founded in 1970 by Bishop Marcel Lefebvre, it is no longer recognized by Rome since 1976, when the founder is suspended for his opposition to the reforms of Vatican II council. In 1988, Marcel Lefebvre and the four bishops he consecrated warning against the Holy See, among whom is Bernard Fellay and Williamson-denier Richard were excommunicated.

The rupture between Rome and the SSPX was complete until 2009, when the excommunication of the bishops rose. A period of discussion for a reconciliation with Rome, during which Bernard Fellay puts some water in their wine fundamentalist church. In substance, he believes that the Vatican might be acceptable, if the reforms were considered in the light of Tradition. The approach failed, but it was too much for the ultras: they question the authority of the superior general, who accuse the Brotherhood will put at risk by agreeing with the "modernists" of the Holy See.
Under the cover of anonymity, some members of the SSPX priests then multiplied the calls for the resignation of Bernard Fellay through anonymous letters or through sites of "resistant" internet. The February 28, 2013, the "Cartaabierta of the 37 priests of the SSPX Bishop Fellay" has spread in these channels. Anonymous Bernard Fellay signatories accused of "harming the common good of our society", accusing him of saying "everything and its opposite." For them, "evangelical righteousness is lost."
This letter opened the way to the ecclesiastical process. On March 7, 2013, through a circular, Father T. (Thouvenot, blog post), secretary general of the SSPX, he informed his flock that "subversion company has just been brought to light in the within the Fraternity. "The T. Father wrote that "in close collaboration with Bishop Williamson, Father R. (Olivier Rioult) is the brain of this company of insubordination, in concert with Father P. (Nicolas Pinaud) and Father S. (Matthieu Salenave) ". Father T. announced that three priests had been "relieved of all ministry" and that they "must go to different priories. An ecclesiastical process will be instituted against him. "
On March 7, a "criminal act" signed by Bernard Fellay ordered Father P. (Pinaud) from "address in 72 hours (...) at the Priory Jaidhof (Austria) and remain there until the completion of the ecclesiastical penal ". Father R. (Rioult) is summoned to go to the priory of Wil, Switzerland, and the Father S. (Salenave) must leave for Albano (Italy). The March 18, 2013, Bernard Fellay erected a church court. Superior district of Switzerland, Father W. (Henry Wuilloud) is appointed judge and Father Q. (Vincent Quilton), professor of moral Ecône, is appointed advisor.

Father R. (Rioult) ever be tried, preferring to leave the fraternity. The S. (Salenave) and P. (Pinaud) Parents will be judged guilty of seditious acts, relieved of his ministry and assigned residence constrained to 4 months in the Priory for Father S. Albano (Salenave) (had already served two then) and 8 months for the father Jaidhof P. (Pinaud) (a shame as purged in awaiting sentencing).
Acts of piracy and identity theft by the animators of these canonical processes appear in the indictment of Father P. (Pinaud). He was drafted by Father Q. (Quilton), the first part of the record of prosecution called "narrative of events", nothing is saved: Father W (Wailliez) (upper district of Belgium) created a fictitious address on behalf of Pinaud father to use it, 3 to 5 times to catch the brothers and lay people involved in the rebellion. Father R. (Rioult) was the first goal ... and the first to take the bait and the first to be discovered. Williamson also caught. "To catch the dissidents, the authors of the trap did not hesitate to sign some of the messages sent on behalf of Father P. (Pinaud).
Below, Father Q. (Quilton) explains how the Father W. (Wailliez) was introduced in the mail from Father R. (Rioult) without him knowing: And going to the Yahoo page, Father W. (Wailliez) followed the procedure in case of forgotten password. There two security questions were formulated: 1 Dad Father's name R. (Rioult) of, which scored with a simple search in the white pages. 2nd name of your favorite teacher. After some hesitation, and with the help of Father T. (Thouvenot) (Secretary General), the word Faurisson allowed easy access to the mailbox, this was a bit like finding a chest keys, poorly disguised. "

According to our information, the Father R. (Rioult) and Father P. (Pinaud) have flocked to French justice. The first for assault on privacy and the second by identity theft. According to The Sapinière site, the IP addresses of the "hackers" were located in Belgium, in the canton of Zug.
Entered in dissent, Father R. (Rioult) and Father P. (Pinaud) could not be reached for Le Temps, neither will your Father Pivert. Impossible to know what has happened to their criminal complaints. Contacted, the SSPX recalls that cases against ecclesiastical justice depend. "We do not erect us above the civil law, which seek to respect," wrote Father T. (Thouvenot) answering our questions. He states that "as the Father P. (Pinaud), the elements used in the proceedings against him, not derived from a process [...] which would have usurped his identity."
Reading the minutes of the process, it seems in fact that the information obtained through false e-mail address was not exploited by the prosecution. However, the exploitation of the contents of the email address of Father R. (Rioult) - "all documents received and sent" - is "left to the General House" [the headquarters of the SSPX in Menzingen (ZG)]
For Geneva lawyer, Capt. Nicolas specialist crime of new technologies, the French justice would matter. Although piracy appear to have been committed in Belgium and Switzerland, the French criminal law applies if "the victim of a crime punishable by imprisonment is of French nationality," he said.
In this case, the criminal code punishes identity theft with a maximum penalty of one year in prison, realizing when the acts were committed on the Internet. "This refers, in my opinion, to written emails to third parties for the" fake "father P. (Pinaud) and the attempts to get the password of the Father R. (Rioult), said the lawyer.
