The sinking of Rainbow Warrior 30 years ago today

“What was the role of NZ SIS in the Sinking of the Rainbow Warrior?”

The sinking of the Rainbow Warrior, codenamed Operation Satanic, was a special operation by the “action” branch of the French foreign intelligence services, the Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure (DGSE), carried out on July 10, 1985. It aimed to sink the flagship of the Greenpeace fleet, the Rainbow Warrior, while she was docked in the port of Auckland, New Zealand, to prevent her from interfering in a nuclear test in Moruroa.

Fernando Pereira, a photographer, drowned on the sinking ship. Two of the French agents were subsequently arrested by the New Zealand Police on passport fraud and immigration charges. Following questioning, they were subsequently charged with arson, conspiracy to commit arson, willful damage, and murder. As part of a plea bargain, they eventually pleaded guilty to manslaughter and were sentenced to ten years, of which they served just over two.

The ensuing scandal resulted in the resignation of the French Defence Minister Charles Hernu, and the subject became so touchy that it was not until twenty years afterwards that the personal responsibility of French President François Mitterrand was officially admitted. (Source)

SIS Skunkery

“. . . SIS failed to stop New Zealand’s only terrorist attack since the SIS began. This was the bombing of the Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior by the French Secret Service in Auckland harbour. One man – photographer Fernando Pereira – was killed. The SIS also failed to predict the Fiji coup of 1987.

“It has however been involved in the harassment of activists. In 1981 during the Springbok tour of New Zealand the SIS released a list of ‘radicals and subversives’ they claimed were influencing the anti-tour movement. Their attempt to smear the movement failed.” — Civil Rights Defence Committee

  • Where were the SIS skunks when the Rainbow Warrior was bombed? Did they materially assist the French government’s terror agents, or just looked the other way?

  • Has a single SIS agent ever been prosecuted, dishonorably discharged, forced to retire, demoted, or otherwise disciplined for ‘failing’ to foil the the terrorist attack by the French government?

  • Since the SIS proven role is that of “protecting” the elite against ordinary people, can it continue as a government unit, or should it be incorporated as a private mercenary force like Blackwater Inc?

The ‘Swiss Knife’ of French Intelligence Folds—permanently

Xavier Maniguet, 62,  one of a group of assassins who helped destroy Greenpeace ship the Rainbow Warrior was reportedly killed in a plane crash.

Xavier Maniguet, also a flying instructor, was killed when his plane crashed in the French Alps near the resort of Saint-Sorlin-d’Arves.

Greenpeace flagship the Rainbow Warrior was bombed in Auckland Harbor because it  was campaigning against French nuclear testing in the South Pacific in 1985.

Dutch-Portuguese photographer Fernando Pereira was killed in the blast on July 10, 1985.

Thanks (!) to the NZ Security Intelligence Service (SIS), the French Secret Service bombing mission succeeded and Xavier Maniguet escaped without any problem.

Two other French assassins, Dominique Prieur and Alain Mafart, were later jailed for 10 years for manslaughter; however, New Zealand government allowed them to walk free because the French government had threatened to expose the NZ SIS link in the Rainbow Warrior bombing, codenamed operation Satanic.

    Surely, no government department, employee or individual can be above the law. Can’t the skunks be at least investigated?

    The only thing you could conceivably prosecute them for would be “misrepresentation”. The stupid baskets call themselves “intelligence service”.
