Kidnapping of little Mia: the French “guru” of kidnappers arrested in Malaysia

New twist in the investigation into the kidnapping of little Mia, 8 years old. Rémy Daillet-Wiedemann, a Frenchman living in Malaysia for several years, and suspected of having influenced those implicated in the kidnapping of the girl, was arrested by local authorities this weekend. Not in execution of the international arrest warrant launched against him by the French justice last month, but for a “visa problem”.

A judicial source confirmed to Parisien-Today-en-France that Rémy Daillet-Wiedemann that his tourist visa was no longer valid and that the Malaysian authorities were holding him for this reason. It remains to be seen whether this measure could constitute the first step in his return to France, where the magistrates and gendarmes in charge of the case of the kidnapping of little Mia are waiting for him firmly. The name of Rémy Daillet-Wiedemann was mentioned on several occasions by the members of the commando who kidnapped the girl, as an ideological reference which would have encouraged them, directly or indirectly, to withdraw the child from its maternal grandmother.

Rémy Daillet-Wiedemann, 54, former president of the Haute-Garonne MoDem at the end of the 2000s (he was excluded from François Bayrou’s party in 2010) and son of Jean-Marie Daillet (former UDF deputy), is no stranger to the intelligence services. Recently, his name appeared in the investigation into the attack on a gendarmerie committed in Dax (Landes), in November 2020. After smashing down the entrance gate of the gendarmerie using his vehicle, the author of the facts, suffering from psychiatric problems, had explained his passage to the act by the influence exerted on Internet by Daillet-Wiedemann.

Last summer, the same Daillet-Wiedemann, sheltered behind a pseudonym, welcomed on social networks the inscription of negationist tags on a memorial stele in Oradour-sur-Glane (Haute-Vienne). In this village stormed by the SS in June 1944, the men had been machine-gunned, the women and children locked up and burned in the church. Since then, “RDW” was the subject of a blue note (simple search for information) Interpol issued at the request of the gendarmes of the Central Office for the fight against crimes against humanity (OCLCH).

A figure of the conspiracy sphere

Apart from these two recent episodes, the man has established himself for several years as one of the major figures of the French-speaking conspiracy sphere. Its videos are seen by several hundred thousand Internet users and the Covid-19 pandemic, the breeding ground for many fantasies, has further increased its popularity.

At the head of a website where his name appears in black and white in the contact address, he notably defends a program entitled “Call for the overthrow of the government of the French Republic”. A sort of “peaceful and popular” coup d’état which aims, beyond members of the government, to evict some of the political and judicial personnel, as well as to lay off the police.

In the Mia affair, it appears that the men of “Operation Lima” were not in direct contact with Lola Montemaggi, the mother, upstream of the kidnapping. In police custody, they declared having received “an order”, an order which would emanate from Daillet-Wiedemann and which would have passed via a so-called “Bouga”, a forties domiciled in the Doubs.
