The Bilderberg conference is in full swing in Lisbon. Charlie Skelton has long reported on the meeting for the British newspaper The Guardian.
This year something remarkable happened at the conference. Economist Victor Halberstadt of Leiden University is closely involved in the shady Bilderberg group and a frequent guest.
On Thursday, just before the conference started, The Guardian ran into the European head of Bilderberg on the streets of Lisbon. Halberstadt had just come out of a pharmacy where he had bought skin cream.
Halberstadt declined to speak to the newspaper. In fact, he flatly denied being Victor Halberstadt. The Bilderberger quickly jumped into a Mercedes which took him back to the hotel.

In 2018 he was awarded the Cross of Honor in the House Order of Orange for his ‘many services’ to the Royal House. He was previously appointed Knight in the Order of the Netherlands Lion.
