Murders, spies and freemasons: the incredible Athanor affaire

52’ | EN/FR | HD | 2022


For the Criminal Brigade, everything starts in 2020 with the arrest of two armed DGSE agents, hiding in a stolen car. They are suspected of having wanted to eliminate a woman, Marie-Hélène Dini. The two soldiers claim to be on a mission for the DGSE’s «action» department, but in reality they are at the heart of a private account settlement.

The sponsor seems to be a company director who wanted to eliminate a competitor. He and his two presumed accomplices are Freemasons, members of a small lodge in the Hauts-de-Seine called Athanor, which has become, according to the investigators, a chilling crime syndicate.

Fifteen people are now under investigation. Thanks to unpublished documents and rare testimonies, our investigation tells you about this sprawling affair, which is now leading the police on the trail of several unsolved cases.
