Sara Bronfman-Igtet

Sara Bronfman-Igtet Employee Speaks to Frank Report – Basit Igtet Threatened to Kill Employees!

Editor’s Note: Below are comments from an employee of Sara Bronfman-Igtet in France.

Sara – along with her husband, Basit, and two young daughters – have suddenly left France and now are in Portugal. She left behind her new mansion, her hotel resort, Domaine Des Andeols, and her Rainbow School, which she called the Campus Beyond School.

The Vaucluse [Education Department] closed down the school. A video created by journalist L’Heure De Se Réveiller helped shutter the school. 

De Se Réveiller told Frank Report“The video brought some interesting news in France regarding Bronfman-Igtet’s school in the town of Apt and their different Athal companies.  Journalist Oli Porri Santoro brought my video to Apt mayor’s attention. Here’s what Mayor Dominique Santoni said, ‘It was in good faith that the municipality rented unused spaces [for the school]. Today, the school is closed. The municipality has taken their school back and it seems that Athal Education has been dissolved.'”

Mayor of Apt messages journalist that Sara Bronfman’s school is closed.

By the way, in making the video that seems to have prompted the closure of the Rainbow School, L’Heure De Se Réveiller credited Frank Report.  Just prior to releasing his video, De Se Réveiller wrote, “I’m almost finished on my next YouTube video about NXIVM/Bronfman-Igtet in France. It’s been an incredible journey, going through all the layers of this organization and I regret that I didn’t start by your articles first to understand that story. But I must thank you for your amazing work, which is the main source of mine.”

As part of his work, De Se Réveiller interviewed a former Athal employee, writing to Frank Report, “I cannot expose [the person’s]identity, because [they] fear for [their] life, but [they] gave me the green light for you to publish [their] story. Here’s [their]testimony:”

By a Former Bronfman-Igtet Employee

Regarding NXIVM company’s history, I don’t have much to add. You’ve highlighted the facts and you’re bringing more than I’ve known about it… Again: great job!!
For my part, I just wanted to bring you my testimony regarding Basit & Sara and their commercial exploitation in the Vaucluse [Ed: Department].
Do you know Sara personally? …. I don’t think that she incarnates evil, for I’ve spent time with her during eight months. Daughter of a rich man, mostly lost in her young age, hence easily influenced, she let herself be drawn in by ‘a smart talker’ advocating for the self-improvement solution…
Certainly she opened her eyes and left the USA when all the media reports came out…  It’s a bit late, but I don’t think that she’s evil inside.
She really believes in this system of education, that it opens ourselves to a new world by the multicultural approach in education. I’m not defending her here, but from what I’ve seen, she doesn’t have bad intentions. Only Utopian and naive.
However, numerous drifts and unclear projects are happening through the different deals the couple has tried to make in our city.
Stefan Fraenkel is CEO of Athal Sa. He was formerly a staff member of the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, a Swiss hospitality school. He left there as Chief of Protocol, after 21 years with the school.

The Bronfman-Igtets did not want their names on official papers. That’s why they’ve searched for a CEO in the quality of Stefan Fraenkel (former Lausanne Hotel School’s Director).  They have numerous companies where S. Fraenkel is listed as the CEO.

Athal Education Group (Apt Campus): Actually closed (no students anymorepeople finally knowing what was going on)

I was in charge of the [redacted] Director and the [redacted]
Athal Hospitality (Domaine des Andéols in the town of Saint Saturnin Les Apt. I was in charge of [redacted] plus [redacted] etc..
We were only 30 people in total to manage the site and everything else that comes with it. Very low salary for everyone, permanent contract with a trial period of eight months, which facilitated the turnover (because of the end season).
The CEO only showed up only a few days a month.
The resort hotel operated by Sara Bronfman-Igtet and her husband Basit Igtet.

 

Basit Igtet spent the company’s money for his personal use and makes excessive expenses like crazy, which puts a stop on the proper functioning of the company as a whole.
They didn’t have any experience in this field but they allowed themselves to step in the [redacted] and [redacted] plans as if they were pros in this system!
Try to work under these conditions. It was an absolutely crazy management.
Between October 2018 and January 2019, they fired everyone. They still have one year before their hotel lease with the owner (Olivier Massard) ends, and I’m dubious regarding their next opening in April [when the season starts again].
I could talk to you about this topic during hours. The season has been so dense, exhausting and beyond understanding.
They also started “Athal Agriculture” by buying a farm in Viens town, close to where they lived.
It is a massive joke. The farm was to grow produce of the season and of high quality and was to be sold to the restaurants of the Domaine des Andéols and to the region.
It was another failure.
Then there was “Athal Service/Athal Estate” and more companies, becoming a 25 arm octopus, monopolizing Luberon’s [Ed: Department] profit!
In short, it was a vast project.
I’m not even mentioning the Golf de Villars purchase (€500.000), with a hotel project in the bargain, but also numerous ‘purchases’ of lands and infrastructures that will never meet success.
Especially since the end of tourist season 2019 [the Luberon tourist season seems to run from May to October], the money was not coming from the USA (through the UK).
Most likely due to Clare’s legal problems. The bank accounts may have been frozen.
Hence, with empty accounts and no money flowing, they just can’t follow their crazy need to make business!
Basit Igtet, husband of Sara Bronfman. Does he have a violent streak?
I’ll skip past most of the relational aspect with Basit, whom, if you don’t agree with him, he threatens to kill you!
This happened many times during meetings where he would say, “if you don’t do it like I say, I’ll kill you all”. True story.
There are also schemes with M.  Jaques Attali and his Positive Planete Foundation (http://positiveplanet.ngo/en/).
Jacques Attali - 2020 - Paris.png
Sara Bronfman and Basit Igtet worked with Jacques Attali, a top adviser to elected officials in France, including various presidents and heads the Positive Planet group.
Many seminars took place at the Domaine des Andéols. The official goal was to build humanitarian projects in Africa. But with ‘nice people’ like Partouche (develops casinos) Cerdine and other millionaires.
These meetings, in my humble opinion, mostly allows Basit Igtet to entrench even more his political position and gain profit from even the darkest schemes, hidden behind a hotel business that doesn’t generate any profit!
It’s difficult for me to dive in again in this story, whether morally or just because there are so many things to tell about it.
Anyway, I am very happy that people like you put the spot on facts that are unbelievable, and yet, that go unnoticed in the French media.
Before I forget, I’ve always wondered about Mayor Dominque Santoni. I’ve attended many meetings with Sara and her. They’re ‘great friends’ and I remain convinced that she knew about Sara’s past [with Nxivm].
After a meeting with Cédric Maros, her Cultural Deputy, he half-expressed, but still with no answers, that the mayor knew about the [Nxivm] situation.
Everything is politics and big cash, because the town of Apt is in debt of more than €20.000.000, that the municipal elections are next months and that M. Maros is also the Director of the SCAD Lacoste (Ed: https://www.scad.edu/locations/lacoste) (Half American Art School). Knowing Sara’s taste for art, the connection is easy.
By the way, Sara helped Trudeau win the election in Canada.

  • Having spent over a decade in Canada, I can confidently say the majority of them were stupid enough to vote for the Liberals on their own.

  • Sara Bronfman is pretty easy to spot. Just look for a pale, clueless white lady with a bad haircut.

    She hangs out with a midget camel jockey who likes to go around and threaten people to kill them.

    Where are you Sara?

  • Frank-

    I’ve never asked for anything before, ever!!!!! Besides an end to fake skin.

    But please, for the love of GOD, stop posting anything mentioning or involving Dennis Burke or Bangkok is Burke. I can’t take it anymore! I don’t know why, but I cannot take it!!!!

  • Are family hiding Sara?

    In addition to the there not being an extradition treaty with Portugal, is there a connection between Hannah Bronfman in Portugal and Sara Bronfman fleeing to Portugal?

    Sara may be ensconced at one of Hannah’s properties right now. Is the property in Hannah’s name or a holding company?

  • “I don’t think that she incarnates evil”
    You can’t tell a book by its cover.

    “I’ll skip past most of the relational aspect with Basit, whom, if you don’t agree with him, he threatens to kill you!”

    Why should this surprise anyone.
    Basit associates with people from the Muslim Brotherhood (The Ikhwan in Arabic).
    The Muslim Brotherhood is the parent organization of Al Qaeda and ISIS.
    Both Al Qaeda and ISIS are filled with cold blooded killers.

    “Basit Igtet meeting Muslim Brotherhood led by Mohamad Sawan. In the meeting also, Tunisia Muslim Brotherhood leader R. Ghannouchi.”
    https://i2.wp.com/frankreport.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/basit-igtet.jpg?w=600&ssl=1

    “Supporters of the Libyan branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, & Shura Council-al-Qaeda in Libya, took to the streets of Libya’s capital Tripoli, Green/Martyrs’ Square, on September 5 to show support for Basit Igtet.”
    https://frankreport.com/2017/11/23/sara-bronfmans-husband-basit-igtet-has-ties-to-muslim-terrorists-and-cult-leader-raniere/

    Even without Basit’s ties to NXIVM he should be considered dangerous by the US government.

  • Concerning my own alleged self-referential madness — not to mention my survival and the well-being of my defenseless disabled son — question for Kym Karath and Jeff Apple: What is the name of the French movie Director you traveled to meet last year in Paris who is, supposedly, financing Kym’s script about her time in France when she fell in love with her son’s father, Phillipe? Also, who wrote the script Jim Archibald presented to Frank Parlato with “Dr. Heidi Roberts” as the lead female character? I only ask bc, face it, both scripts suck and the only way in hell either would ever be produced is likely over my or Frank’s dead body. But let’s just chalk that up to more of my alleged paranoia. Nonetheless, I dies y’all goes to prison.

    And, the French film financier’s name is??? OH, BTW, the only present Jeff Apple brought back for Dylan Apple from that trip was a “Lorenzo the Great” coloring book in honor of Lorenzo Santoyo, husband of Ingrid Santoyo, who made the fraudulent workman’s comp claim lately expanded to include numerous false allegations against me. How’s that for paranoia and may I have my disability check now please bc, as Bangkok predicted, I am having just a little trouble finding employment. Assholes.

  • Funny how “The Tribe” is almost always involved in something bad going down. I think “Sympathy for the Devil” might have been written about them. LOL!

    • Gee, thanks Alex. I needed that like Gina needed a hole in the head. In fact, most of the people tapped to help destroy me are not members of the “tribe” and those who are (with the exception of my ex) were misled into believing that me and my sister were full-blown members of NXIVM.

      In fact, me and my son are far more Jewish than my ex in every sense and he is being just as shunned as I.

      Sounds like you’re the one who’s had some NXIVM Nazi training.

      • I also think it was very strange that Sara was appointed president of the board of commerce of the USA/Libya, a person who has no real experience in the field, this is something that the simple money of her family nope can buy, she and her husband were being used as pawns in the game of other people who DO KNOW what they are doing, unfortunately, the bad publicity of their mentor KAR also splashed them, what curiosity seems family karma thing the Bronfman family served as frontmen and facade for other people in opium traffic, and it seems that apples did not walk away from the tree

  • Great investigative journalism!

    This series’s of articles must piss Sara off. All of her former socialite “friends” are laughing at her. Google Sara’s name and your articles come up; same with Clare.

    Sorry Bronfman girls, you are both a joke.

  • Nice work all around.

    It sounds like Bronfman is a typical hapless heir, with ideas but not the organizational ability to really carry them through successfully. As hinted at here, the upbringings of the children of the wealthy often have disadvantages of their own, including a lack of attention from parents who are too occupied with business and socializing to raise kids themselves and pass on their skills and work habits, and who instead rely on nannies and boarding schools.

    This, in particular, caught my eye:

    “Especially, since the end of tourist season, 2019 [the Luberon tourist season seems to run from May to October] the money was not coming from the USA (through the UK).
    Most likely due to Clare’s legal problems. The bank accounts may have been frozen.”

    I wonder if that just refers to what Sara had to do to help Clare secure her bond, or if somehow Clare’s legal problems have restricted Sara’s access to more of the Bronfman fortune.

    • What the hell are you talking about? Sara was buying up the freaking town. Clare’s financial woes didn’t cause Sara restricted access. Besides how the heck can you blame Clare for Sara’s problems? They are both financially independent and make their own decisions.

  • We have heard through the grapevine that the government is still looking at the Bronfmans.

    Have also heard that the government is looking at Clare Bronfman’s former lawyer, Dennis K. Burke, who reportedly assisted in Raniere’s immigration frauds, and Burke’s law partner, John Sandweg, who, among other things, invoked his title as former Chief of Staff of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as part of what the government called, in court documents, a “scheme to circumvent the immigration laws”, knowingly enacted with assistance from Burke who also used to work for the federal government as a prosecutor and, therefore, was familiar with government policies and procedures.

    The government’s case against the Bronfmans and their corrupt partners might not be over yet. Time will tell.

    • How can we find out if Burke and 🥪 Sandwich have any investments in private prisons that hold kidnapped Mexicans and hold them for at least a $12,000.00 ransom aka a bond?

    • Just one question for ‘anonymous’ (I mean, Heidi). 🙂

      Why doesn’t that fat bald fuck (Dennis Burke) take any Rogaine for his half-bald melon?

      • Nope, wasn’t me. Believe it or not, Dennis Burke rarely graces my thoughts. I’ve seen posts about Burke attributed to me — as you are doing.

        Now, Robert Snow or Chase Brandon — our Secret Service and CIA consultants on “In the Line of Fire” and “The Recruit,” respectively, those are a couple of Federal retirees I’d like to catch up with, find out if they’ve talked to Jeff Apple in the past couple years or so. Especially since Robert met my sister, Gina, and her friend Serena, when he unexpectedly stopped by to check on our house while we were in Europe and stumbled on the girls sunbathing topless. And since Jeff was spooking me in his and Chase’s name rather recently.

  • I think some things were lost in translation. And a few may have been added.🤣

    She helped Trudeau win the election? LOL! Besides the fact that the Bronfmans are NOT Canadian (they have only lived in the US and in Europe)…how would this employee even be aware of Sara “helping” Trudeau, and why would Sara care about the Canadian election?

    • Typical of the wealthy, and like others in her family, she probably gave some political donations either in furtherance of her ideals, or just to be sure she’s spread enough money around that her name stays on the radar of people with influence. She may well have a retainer such as an attorney who sees after her affairs back in Canada, and who coordinates such things on her behalf.

      • Even if she did donate to him (though she is not a Canadian citizen), that is not the same thing as “helping to win an election”.

        • Agreed, that is almost certainly someone’s exaggeration.

          The interesting question is, what citizenship does she hold? Sources says the Bronfmans are Americans, but they might actually hold dual Canadian or British citizenship through their parents.

          • Nxivm was alive and well in Canada and their actresses still involved.. didn’t the Bronfmans pay companies in Canada to spy on US judges? Seems the Bronfmans do a lot of “business” in Canada. Not always on the up and up. I’m sure Trudeau wouldn’t know a thing about that though.

          • Your leftward bending Peyronie’s disease is showing again. As I told Flowers, money is the mother’s milk to winning elections. Trump was an exception, because Hellary THE Horrible was SO bad. LOL

    • Flowers, you’re on here 24/7 flappin’ your petals about POTUS, cyberstalking and snapping your flytrap at anyone with a maybe real name who might upstage you, demanding ‘logic’ as if you invented it and you ask “why would Sara care about the Canadian election?”

      How about bc her guru (Keith Raniere) and her husband her guru ordered her to marry (Basit Igtet) are world-class, narcissist terrorists operating on the same Bluebeard, Gigalo principle to use her vast resources to advance their self-serving, world takeover objectives while convincing her she is advancing humanity?

    • The Bronfman family has a long history in Canada, her grandfather was a Canadian bootlegger during the prohibition and other Bronfman relatives visibly supported Trudeau’s campaign. Of course Sara didn’t contribute any tactical or strategic plans, common sense advice, etc., she gave the only thing of value she could offer – money.

      • I know her father was Canadian, but she has never lived in Canada. She has only lived in the US and Europe, according to the information I can find. Its mentioned quite often on FR that the Bronfmans are Canadian, but do they hold Canadian citizenship?

        • The question is whether she helped with the recent election, not where she lives. With her Canadian roots, including relatives still living in Canada and being part of the recent campaign, it is reasonable that she gave money to the Trudeau campaign.

  • Great article Frank. I watched L’Heure De Se Réveiller video. It’s intense with dark music and great visual art. I hope we get to read more on Igtets anger issues.
