Paedeophile rings protected by police and politicians in Australia

The children from the Mornington Peninsula child-care-Centre reported being taken to a "pink" room with a spa and other significant decor. It was in a house where the children were sexually abused, tortured and filmed (amongst other locations). Three children independently identified the house that they had been taken to, to the investigators. Sure enough, the room had been painted a dusty-pink color, and it had a spa and the other decor items described by the children.

Commissioner Bob Atkinson Covering Up for Paedophiles

If you have not read this blog... you need to.

There are pedophile rings which include government officials, politicians, TV executives, TV presenters and the police.

This is how it works worldwide.

A BRAVE AND COMMITTED YOUNG WOMAN EXPOSES ON THIS WEBSITE AN UNTOUCHABLE PEDOPHILE AND SATANIC NETWORK OPERATING IN AUSTRALIA INVOLVING HIGH GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS, LEADING POLITICIANS, TELEVISION EXECUTIVES, TOP TV PRESENTERS, AND THE POLICE.

(The lady at the centre of this story is Dr Reina Michaelson) GRAHAM KENNEDY, "The King of Comedy" / "The King of Television", is the person referred to therein by the pseudonym "Gerald Oanasis". ("Sarah Connor" is NOT Nova Peris-Kneebone) The following is a summary of events that detail the infiltration of a high-profile, powerful group of child sex offenders into my child abuse prevention organisation.

What was uncovered as a result of this infiltration was the existence of an Illuminati-based child pornography and paedophile ring that is operating in Australia, under the protection of senior-ranking members of Victoria Police. The members of the network include senior management and executives from a major television network, media celebrities, high-ranking politicians, police officers in charge of pedophile and child pornography investigations, senior management representatives from the Department of Education, directors of "child-focused" service clubs, wealthy businessmen, and others. I have tried to keep the account as brief as possible while trying to include all relevant information.

The description covers events from 1995 until present. Names have been changed. Department of Education Protects Pedophile Teacher In 1995 I started running Australia's first child sexual abuse prevention program in schools. This school-based program teaches children how to protect themselves from sexual abuse and what to do if someone tries to sexually abuse them. The program also teaches adults how they can best protect children under their care from sexual abuse.

PEDOPHILE RING EXPOSED; AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT MINISTER AND OTHER TOP PEOPLE ACCUSED

My assistant and I were at a particular high school in the northern region working with Year 9 boys. We received a note written anonymously by one of the boys asking "What do you do if you get raped by a teacher and no-one will believe you? What happens if you get raped and you enjoy it?". Later during that day we were asked exactly the same question by a boy who was flushed red with embarrassment. I replied "Talk to the Student Welfare Coordinator", to which he replied "What if he is the one who won't believe you?" I emphasized that it is important to keep telling until someone believes you.

Bob Atkinson, the CMC Qld, Politicians & Over 50 Other Police Covered Up the Sexual Abuse of My Children

During the day my assistant and I noticed the strange behavior of a particular teacher, called Dick Newman. Later that afternoon I learnt that the car I had been driving had been rammed in the school's car-park. Witnesses reported that the car had been rammed deliberately by a man who then drove off very quickly. The local police were called and ran a license check on the car and discovered that the number-plate was fake. They then took photos of the crime scene using the school's camera. Later, when it was revealed that a teacher was under suspicion of sexually abusing the children at the school and then organising the ramming of my car to intimidate me, the photos went "missing", and no further action was taken.

Dick Newman was the only person at the school who knew my car, as he had taken it upon himself to show me to my car to give me directions to the shops during a break in classes. It was organised that the boys in Year 9 would be interviewed in order to find the victims and give them appropriate support. Three people (including myself, my assistant and a counsellor from a sexual assault centre) were responsible for conducting the interviews.

At the completion of the interviews, there were concerns for approximately 12 of the boys. These concerns related specifically to sexual assault by a teacher at the school. However, by this stage (over a week had passed since the initial program) it was clear that the boys had been threatened. For example, when I interviewed the boy who had asked the questions about sexual abuse by a teacher and not being believed, he huddled into a foetal position, started crying, and said he could not tell me what happened. When I asked him why he couldn't tell me, he replied that he had been threatened with his life.

His best friend told me he would never tell what had happened. Some time after this, we organised a theatre company performance for the students (on the topic of sexual abuse). While the children were seated and waiting for the play to begin, Dick Newman made an unscheduled visit to the hall. He proceeded to stand in front of each of the boys we had identified as potential victims and stare them down.

The boys, who had been happy and laughing in the excitement of waiting for the play to begin, went grey with fear. Finally, I stood in front of Dick Newman so that he could not intimidate the boys any further. I was then told no further action would be taken as the boys had not named the offender.

Program Infiltrated by Pedophile Board of Management

I was the recipient of a very prestigious national award for Community Service.

One of the judges was a well-connected government official (Ron Snide), and another was the General Manager (Bob Sisterly) of one of the major Australian television networks (Network X). After winning this award, Bob Sisterly approached me and said that he had never heard of this terrible crime (child sexual abuse) before meeting me. He said wanted to help me get my program into every school in Victoria within five years and said he had the money and the connections to do this.

He said he would raise half a million dollars in six-weeks and have it matched within 6-months.

He said that he and Ron Snide would set my program up as an independent organisation and that they would establish a Board of Management consisting of all of their powerful and influential friends.

Ron Snide would become President of the organisation and Bob Sisterly, Vice-President. I agreed to Bob Sisterly's proposal as it sounded as if he would enable the program to receive substantial funding and therefore be able to reach many more children within Victoria, and across Australia.

I did not consider for a second that Bob Sisterly and Ron Snide could have been deceiving me in order to get control of, and ultimately, to destroy the child sexual abuse prevention program that I had developed. The Board members and supporters that they brought to the organisation were very powerful and from the highest echelons of society.

These included the Editor-in Chief of a major Australian newspaper, the former head of a child-focused service club, the head of the largest agricultural society in Victoria, the partner from a well-known law firm, an extremely wealthy businessman and former Network X board member, the head of a well-known accounting firm, the head of a successful advertising company, and others. Despite having such wealth and powerful connections, in the two-year period that they served on the Board they organised only one donation of $25,000.

The board members subsequently despised the donor and ostracised him from their community

The board members subsequently despised the donor and ostracised him from their community (which at the time I thought was incredibly ungrateful!). This is compared with over $200,000 my family and I raised doing the fundraising ourselves in the same time period! Furthermore, my efforts to secure funding were being actively sabotaged. For example, after an interview on the Channel 9 'Today' show (not Network X), I was contacted by a well-known multi-national company who said that they would like to fund my program.

This well-known company was located in Sydney, and as Bob Sisterly frequently went to Sydney, I asked if he would have a meeting with them on behalf of our organisation. He agreed. However, when he returned from the meeting, he said for me not to have much hope and not to contact them for six months while they sorted out a new tax issue.

I found this very odd, as they had been so keen to fund the organisation when I had spoken to them.

I phoned the woman whom I had spoken to, and she confirmed my suspicions. She had been at the meeting and Bob Sisterly had told the company not to bother funding us, as "the organisation won't be around in six months". Needless to say, we did not receive the funding.

Needless to say, we did not receive the funding

During this time period, I was without any income for four months. Many other people would have quit and sought other employment, however, I believed passionately in my cause and did not give up, much to the chagrin of Bob Sisterly. On one occasion he said to me "You have given so much to this cause in your life, why don't you just give up? You have achieved more good in your short life than many do in a long life-time. Why don't you retire down in the country (I was 28 years old). Go on, just give up". When I replied that I would never give up, he stormed away!

I was confused by this behavior, but as I trusted him I did not think too much more about it at the time. The Board members achieved one other "in-kind" donation. It was the use of a Honda CRV vehicle. I appreciated the use of the vehicle while I had it (approximately 18 months). However, I later discovered that the head of the company that donated it, a close friend of Ron Snide, had just been convicted of child sex offences. These offences included the production of child pornography.

Ron Snide organised a meeting with Tom Fatsky, the CEO of a major charitable trust and personal friend of his and to other members of the Board. At that meeting I was amazed when Tom asked me "Do you ever think that by preventing children from having sexual relationships with adults that you are actually HARMING them?" I replied by citing the research that strongly indicates adult-child sexual relationships are harmful to children, but he had switched his mind off to my argument. He then stated that in 100 years or so it will be revealed that such relationships are not harmful but that what I was doing was harmful to children.

I was certainly taken aback and Ron said "Don't worry, Tom just thinks on a very high intellectual plane. High above yours". Needless to say, we didn't get funding from Ron Snide's very good friend after all. Meeting with VERY POWERFUL Pedophile Politician After winning the award, I had a meeting with a very powerful state politician, Greg Neckett. At that time, Greg Neckett was the most powerful person in the state. As well as being politically powerful he also had key business interests, including in the media. When I was first introduced to him, he was staring at me quite sleazily. After he asked what work I do, and my response "child abuse prevention", he would not make eye contact at all and sought to exclude me from the meeting in a very bullying manner.

It was well-known that Greg Neckett was a serious domestic violence offender, and that his wife was frequently being admitted to shelters in secret. However, given the power and status of Mr. Neckett, the issue was never raised in the mainstream media. I was later to be informed by a very reliable and trusted source from the child welfare field that there is a file containing serious child sex offences (against boys) by Greg Neckett, but because of his enormous power in Victoria, the police would not act on it.

I also discovered from a former sex worker that Greg Neckett frequently paid St. Kilda boy sex workers for sex, and that one of these boys "talked too much to the wrong people and ended up dead with an 'accidental' heroin overdose". It was also alleged that Greg Neckett intentionally abused the boys in unusual situations (for example, in a helicopter) so that if it ever got out, the boys' testimonies would seem unbelievable.

This of-course, is exactly the same strategy used by offenders in the U.S child-care centre cases. Interestingly, Greg Neckett has recently commissioned a statue of himself - as a gargoyle. Later I met with another politician (from the same political party) who told me that "Greg Neckett is REALLY into that (child sex abuse)". This same politician told me that in the late 1980's and early 1990's, the police were "getting too close to the truth, too close to people in high positions of power who are also pedophiles" and so the unit that had been established to investigate organised pedophilia was shut down. (Soon after a pedophile police officer was put in charge of investigating these offences to ensure that the truth never got out and that this high-ranking network of offenders would never get caught).

Network X Produces Pornography One day I was working on a computer at Network X. As I was working, Bob Sisterly approached my computer and put a floppy disk in the machine. He said "Look at this" and proceeded to bring up images of pornography involving humans and Sesame Street characters. I was very embarrassed and did not know how to react. I asked "Where did you get that?" and he replied "Oh, someone put it together here", indicating that Network X was producing pornography.

I was later to discover that Network X is also producing child pornography and is, in fact, an Illuminati-owned and run television station. I was also later to discover that Bob Sisterly is a passionate member of the Illuminati "religion". Bob Sisterly introduces me to Mr. Television. After winning the abovementioned award, I was invited to go on one of the morning television shows on Network X. (This was before my association with Bob Sisterly.

Ironically, after my association with Bob Sisterly, Network X did not do any promotion of my work at all!) It is hosted by one of the most famous and longest serving television personalities in Australia, Ernie Old. I was asked to prepare a number of questions that Ernie would ask me. I prepared very straight-forward questions that focussed on the work, so I was quite shocked when he glared at me and said "Are you doing this because it happened to YOU?". I was also stunned when he refused to allow the phone number of my organisation to be presented on the air for donations.

When I later became closely associated with Network X Bob Sisterly would often say to me "You know, Ernie Old REALLY likes you. He REALLY likes you!" This surprised me because my experience of Ernie Old had been the exact opposite of that. (Interestingly, Bob Sisterly also frequently said to me "Greg Neckett (the very powerful politician) really likes me since I started helping you. He has me sit next to him at all of the formal functions we attend now". This was indeed true, Greg Neckett, Bob Sisterly and Ron Snide were all the best of friends.)

After my experience with Network X, I subsequently discovered that in the late 1980's Ernie Old was frozen out of the television industry due to allegations of his involvement in the production of child pornography. Although his alleged involvement in this activity was well-publicisized at the time, he was never charged and about a year later he joined Network X. Since then he has continued to play a significant role in the production of child pornography in Australia.

One contact who works on the set of the morning program hosted by Ernie Old finds the work to be very distressing as other on-air talent are very open about their pedophilia. This contact is disgusted, as his sister is a victim of child sex offences, however he does not want to publicly disclose the information as he will lose his job. In addition to the above, I am now in contact with a boy who was paid $2000 a night to have sex with Ernie Old, from the ages of 15 - 18 years.

Introduction to the Pedophile Police

Introduction to the Pedophile Police. There is a specialised police unit in Victoria that, since the early 1990's, is responsible for investigating all child sex offences involving multiple-victims, offences committed by teachers, as well as child pornography offences. I had a meeting with the head of this unit, Detective Senior Sergeant Nick Flanagan, and was very surprised when the first thing he said to me was "Does Greg Neckett know about your program? Greg Neckett should know about your program".

I found this a very odd thing for him to say as an opening statement, and especially so, given the information known about Greg Neckett's alleged sexual abuse of boys. I thought it impossible for this police officer not to know of these things, given his specialist role. Relationship between Nick Flanagan and Bob Sisterly I subsequently became aware of the "unusual" relationship between Nick Flanagan (police) and Bob Sisterly (Network X). I invited Nick Flanagan to do a presentation for the board members.

Ron Snide was "so impressed" by Nick Flanagan that he wanted to invite him onto the Board of Management (along with all the other pedophile members). I later discovered that Nick Flanagan and Bob Sisterly, although pretending not to know each other at the Board meeting, have a very cosy relationship indeed. Specifically, a couple of years ago, a senior staff member at Network X was charged with procuring children for prostitution.

At the time, the wife of a detective working in Nick Flanagan's unit (Jan Pummell) received a very sudden and significant promotion to become Bob Sisterly's Personal Assistant. It was a clear conflict of interest and deeply comprising to the investigation. Jan Pummell's husband should not have been involved in investigating Network X staff for their involvement in procuring children for prostitution or any other child sex offences connected to Network X.

However, with the appointment of the detective's wife to Personal Assistant of the General Manager of Network X, it was guaranteed that no other information pertaining to Network X's illegal activities involving sex offences against children would be pursued by Nick Flanagan or his unit. And Jan Pummell enjoyed her unexpected and incredibly well-paid, new position at Network X. Pedophile Police Called in to Investigate Pedophile Teacher and Other Offences In 1999 fresh allegations were made against Pedophile Teacher, Dick Newman.

This time, teenage girls reported that Dick Newman approaches students and asks them to meet him after school to meet 'Winston the Baseball Bat'. They indicated that 'Winston' was Dick Newman's penis. They reported that other students were very affected by this behavior, and some had taken to writing warnings to each-other on the desks, such as "If Newman asks you to meet Winston, don't do it - its his dick!!". At last, Newman had been named and the victims were prepared to come forward.

Newman admitted to these offences and received 5 sessions of counselling. I then discovered that Newman had conveniently taken up a temporary position in a country school (like a priest being moved from parish to parish when things get too hot). The principal at the original school had not told the new school the circumstances surrounding his transfer and had instead said "Poor Dick, he's had a difficult time lately". I later discovered that this Principal was an expert liar and had gone over and above the call of duty in protecting this pedophile teacher.

At this new country school it was not long before further allegations of child abuse by Newman came out. Incidents of verbal abuse, such as calling students "f--king stupid" were revealed, as well as physical assaults, such as dragging students out of the classroom and throwing them on the floor. In another physical assault, Newman grabbed the 12-year-old boy by the neck and held him by his neck against a wall. Newman admitted to the latter assault, wrote a letter of apology and provided financial compensation for the loss of the necklace.

With Newman being named and various offences being admitted to, I reported his behavior for criminal investigation to Nick Flanagan's unit. It also provided the opportunity for the 1995 offences to be re-investigated. However, Nick Flanagan interviewed only 2 of the 12 boys on the list from 1995, and reported to me that as the first two boys did not disclose anything, the others would not be interviewed. In relation to the offences against the teenage girls, Flanagan said that, at 15 years of age, the girls were "too young", and he did not want to distress the girls' families by bringing up the topic of child sexual abuse.

Therefore, these offences by Newman would not be investigated either. I could not believe what I was hearing! Child sex offences are offences because they happen against children! And at 15, the victims were hardly at the young end of the age-spectrum! It was a completely nonsensical reason for not investigating Dick Newman. As for the physical assaults, Flanagan said that he was not responsible for such investigations, so those cases would not be pursued either.. (Interestingly, Bob Sisterly also frequently said to me "Greg Neckett (very powerful politician) really likes me since I started helping you.

He has me sit next to him at all of the formal functions we attend now".) He said "You do understand, don't you!" (it was not a question) and I replied that I did not. However, Nick Flanagan was not prepared to discuss the situation amicably and Dick Newman evaded investigation, by both the police in the unit established to investigate such offences, and by the Department of Education.

Further Dealings with the Pedophile Police Whilst at the country school (Goldtown) disclosures of child sexual abuse by other offenders were made by many children. The disclosures centred on two offenders in the town. The specialised unit arrived to "investigate". However, the main victim of the sexual abuse, Sammy, a 12-year-old girl, did not attend school that day. She arrived after school on her bike and her face was visibly disfigured.

I was told by her best friend that she had been bashed but her friend would not tell me who did this to Sammy. Her smashed-in face was warning enough for all of the children. The police later went to her house, where she fainted upon seeing them. She did not disclose any abuse at all. Despite the fact that her face was visibly disfigured and swollen from a recent assault, the police did not pursue the matter further. The specialised police unit totally destroyed any chance of the truth being revealed and the victims receiving the justice they deserved.

For example, they left children waiting all day to be interviewed and did not end up interviewing them, including witnesses to attempted child-rapes. They interviewed one 12-year-old victim (Lucy) and totally intimidated her. When the girl indicated that the police didn't believe her the first time she told them what had happened to her, one officer lent right over the top of her, pointed his finger directly in her face and hissed "Don't say that! You don't know that!".

I was shaking, and I was an adult sitting next to the girl! As she walked out of the interview room, the officer said in voice loud enough for the girl to hear "We have serious concerns about the truth of what this girl is saying". It had the desired effect, Lucy burst into tears and said "The police don't believe me. I don't want to keep going". The Welfare Co-ordinator, who was also in the room during the interview, and who is also an experienced sexual assault counsellor and child protection officer, said to me "That wasn't an interview. That was designed to stop a child from talking".

The police did not pursue the case any further on the following grounds: No-one would believe Sammy if she disclosed the abuse in the future, as she hadn't disclosed the first time. (The fact that she had been bashed would not be seen as relevant to her hesitancy to disclose?!) Lucy had led all the children on (to make up "stories" of sexual abuse for fun, even though the children were visibly traumatised). In relation to the sexual abuse of a boy, "men try to touch other men's penises after football matches all the time" (!) so it was not worthy of pursuing. And finally, that there was not enough evidence - this is despite the fact that there were WITNESSES to the attempted rapes of the children, and the testimonies of many victims provided significant corroboration. Also, many adults reported having been sexually abused by the same offenders when they were children, but the police refused to interview these adults.

The Case is Stonewalled by the Pedophile Police

The Case is Stonewalled by the Pedophile Police The police recommended that the Welfare Co-ordinator make reports to the Child Protection department as they stated it was a "protective issue, not a criminal one". The Welfare Co-ordinator did this, but weeks passed and the children were not interviewed, and she inquired as to why. She was informed that the Child Protection Department would not be taking any further action "on the advice of the police".

So, after telling the Welfare Co-ordinator to take the case to Child Protection for investigation, the Police effectively stone-walled the investigation by advising Child Protection NOT to investigate. Relationship between Bob Sisterly and Nick Flanagan During the two-year association I had with Bob Sisterly, Don Snide and the Board of Management that they had established, I trusted them implicitly. Although incidents occurred that often left me confused, and often baffled, and of-course, frequently without funding, I continued to trust them. Bob Snide always said to me "I'm here to help". It was his favourite saying.

I therefore reported all of the events that had occurred at the northern secondary school and the Goldtown school, to Bob Sisterly. Bob Sisterly then told me that he knows Detective Senior Sergeant Nick Flanagan (in contrast to his earlier pretence of not knowing him at all!). He stated that Nick Flanagan is a "really good bloke". However, when I spelt out the stonewalling of the Goldtown case, Bob Sisterly's face twitched and he became visibly uncomfortable.

I had never seen Bob Sisterly react in this way. It was soon after this that very strange events began to occur. On one occasion Bob Sisterly was on the phone to his "boss" (of Network X). When his boss realized that I was present he began to speak aggressively, not knowing that I could hear him. He was saying "put her on the phone to me, I'll sort her out!". Of course, I found this all to be very strange as I had never even met this man before.

However, when Bob Sisterly apologised on behalf of his boss, I accepted it and put it out of my mind - again, because at that time I trusted him. I had recently purchased a very cheap country property that I planned to use as a retreat for abused children. I invited the board members to view the site. None attended, however Bob Sisterly said that he wanted to go - alone with me. He said he had set aside the whole day for it and was putting me under enormous pressure to go with him.

I felt very uncomfortable about it as he had insisted on a number of details. First, it had to be a complete secret. I wasn't even allowed to tell my parents that I was going, let alone where I was going. Second, he had to drive. I wasn't even allowed to drive my car to the station and for us to drive together from there (my car had to stay at my unit car-park). And third, Bob Sisterly insisted on picking me up from my unit before day-break. This was unnecessary as the trip only takes two-hours. Of course, all of these bizarre "conditions" and the huge pressure that Bob Sisterly was putting me under made me feel extremely wary. With my parents' help I made up an excuse at the very last minute and did not go. However, if I had done as Bob Sisterly had wanted and if anything had happened to me that day, I would have gone missing without a trace.

Trauma-based mind control, sexual abuse and satanic ritual to force children to create "alter personalities".

Sammy's relationship to Network X Sammy, the 12-year-old-girl from Goldtown, was the main victim of the sexual abuse being perpetrated against children in the town. She referred to the offender (a man in his 60's) as her "boyfriend", and her close friends knew of the sexual activities between her and the man. The offender also happened to be the best friend of her father. I was asked to provide support to Sammy, and in one session it became apparent that Sammy's personality had been totally fragmented. In her words, she was like "a house with mirrors everywhere, smashed into broken bits". It was later that I learned about the Illuminati use of trauma-based mind control, sexual abuse and satanic ritual to force children to create "alter personalities".

Other information from Sammy has led me to believe that she has been subjected to all these forms of abuse. Sammy also told me that her relative takes her to Queensland (Australia) "whenever I want" and that she can get "whatever I want, too". It was only later that I learned of the immense significance of what Sammy was telling me. Sammy's relative is a Board member of Network X, who is based in Queensland. It is my belief that Sammy was being used in Network X's production of child pornography, both in Victoria and Queensland.

Here is another example of the police's failure to investigate a case with ominous connections to Network X. In particular, the police unit that has been established specifically and exclusively to investigate such cases well and truly ensured that this case would go NOWHERE. After two sessions with Sammy I was told that the school had "received complaints" that I had "brainwashed the children" and the support sessions were terminated.

More Connections to the Illuminati - the Satanic Cult in Goldtown I was to learn later that there is a Satanic cult operating in Goldtown. I learned this from two independent sources. One was from a Christian woman who was raised in the town and who since had moved elsewhere. The other was from an adult survivor of the cult, Mick. The Satanic cult is very powerful within the town, and was headed up by the most powerful and influential families of the town.

One of the members owned and operated the photographic studio in the town. Furthermore, Greg Neckett, the powerful politician mentioned previously, has significant "business operations" extremely close to Goldtown, and he was driven (by his driver) to this location every week. Mick's Experiences Mick was introduced to the satanic cult as a very young child by an extended relative. Mick informed me of many experiences he was subjected to as a child in this cult. From everything that I have been told by Mick, the cult appears to be the Order Templis Orientus (Illuminati), operating in Australia.

Mick now suffers from MPD/DID

Mick now suffers from MPD/DID but has survived his experiences remarkably well considering the traumas he has been through. As a child Mick was forced to attend blood-rituals, where animals and small children were sacrificed and their blood and organs consumed. Mick was required to clean up the blood after these rituals. The children and babies were street children or were taken from orphanages, so that they could not be traced and no-one would know, or care, if they went missing.

The rituals were spoken in Latin and were clearly satanic. The rituals took place at various locations, including Goldtown. Mick and other children would be driven to the rituals in the boots of cars. The members of the cult were extremely powerful members of society. There were numerous politicians (mainly from the conservative party). These people would often speak of important events before they would actually occur. Mick was also sexually abused by Gerald Oanasis, the famous television personality and professional partner of Ernie Old.

Mick was one of the many children who were used to "host" parties of the cult members. At these parties the children acted as waiters and were naked. Many of the adults, but not all, would wear masks at these parties. After the food was served the adults would have sex with the children. Children who tried to escape were killed, often in front of the other children in order to control the children through fear. Once Mick and another child had tried to escape but were caught. The other child was murdered by having her head smashed open with a rock. Her body was then dumped in a nearby mineshaft.

Mick was spared the same fate, as he was told that he was the "chosen one", selected to carry on the traditions of the group. Mick was forced to participate in the production of child pornography, including movies as well as still photographs. This involved sexual activity with other children as well as adults. He would get paid a small amount for his sexual "services", while the relative who brought him to the events would get paid a large amount of money. As he got older, Mick was no longer used for sexual purposes by the group but was required to recruit new younger children. When he was old enough (in his 20's), Mick was able to escape the group but they continue to contact him with threats.

Bob Sisterly's "Religion" During my association with Bob Sisterly I got to know him (in some ways!) quite well. One day he informed me of his "religious" beliefs. These were the opposite of mine (as I am a Christian). I was also informed by one of his colleagues in the media industry that Bob's "religion" is "weird s--t". At the time I had not heard of the Illuminati and it is only now that I realise that Bob Sisterly is an active and dedicated member of the Australian Illuminati. The symbolism used in Network X promotional material is totally consistent with that of the Illuminati (Order Templis Orientus), such as the key colours - blue and gold, and key imagery involving flames.

Telephone Interference and Intimidation Begins

Telephone Interference and Intimidation Begins It was after reporting the events at Goldtown to Bob Sisterly that unusual events began to occur. My phone line began clicking, and the voice-mail service recorded the sounds of a tape clicking over (note, voice-mail does not use tapes for recording so the tape was from another source). Two of my organisations' staff members had their cars broken into on the same night. In one car, the book "The Clocks" by Agatha Christie was on the front seat. The book is the story of a series of murders where the only evidence left at each murder scene is a clock. On the front seat of the other staff member's car was a broken clock. Nothing was stolen from either car.

On one occasion I purposely said over the phone that I kept all of my files in the backyard shed (this was not true, I just wanted to test the security of the telephone line). Soon after, the back shed was broken into. Board Members Propose a Name-Change At one board meeting, Harry Napkin, the head of the Agricultural Society, proposed to launch the organisation, despite the fact that it had been operating for nearly two years.

He had three ideas. The first was that a rodeo would be organised, and whenever a rider fell from their horse or bull, money would be donated. Thus, it would be "money for every bruised butt". The second proposal was to organise a "beauty pageant" for 12-year-old girls. There would be an award given for "the prettiest girl on the shiniest pony". A photo of her on her horse would be used as a centre-page-spread in the leading newspaper (courtesy of the Editor-In-Chief contact). The third proposal was to have a photo of sexually abused children in an "animal birthing centre". This photo would also be published in the leading newspaper.

Harry Napkin also proposed a name-change. He proposed to change the name of the organisation to 'Shine'. I did not want to do this, and the members of the Board put me under incredible pressure to adopt this name-change. It was only later that I learnt about the Illuminati connections and the significance of their symbolism and language. 'Shine' is a very significant Illuminati term. Realisation Dawns It was at this point that I realised that something was dreadfully wrong. I rejected all of the proposed ideas (very politely, but firmly). I also called for all outstanding Criminal Records Checks to be undertaken immediately. The Criminal Records Check had been designed only to identify whether a person had committed any sexual assaults against children or had any involvement in related offences, such as child pornography. Therefore, if a person had smoked marijuana in their university days, this would not be revealed in the Criminal Record Check.

This was a policy that I had insisted on right from the start (nearly two years ago), however Bob Sisterly had given numerous excuses every time I had requested his. He even went so far as to suggest that he would organise it "on the sly" using his "contacts in the force". I did not pursue that option and instead gave the Board members two weeks to complete their forms and submit them. Bob Sisterly, while initially embracing the policy at the start, ultimately refused to submit a Criminal Records Check.

The Significance of Shine I discovered that there is an Australian Internet-based group called 'Shine'. The site includes a membership section where members are able to exchange photos etc, including "S&M" and "hard-core Ernie Old style". It is a child pornography club that operates similar to the notorious Wonderland club. I noted the code-names used by the operators of the Shine site, one of which was Natas (Satan backwards).

I went to the Network X site and entered a secret section on the site (which members of the public would never know about). It asked for the password, so I typed in Natas, which took me to another level. It then asked for the next level password, which I didn't have. The computer then went beserk and was almost impossible to turn off. I managed to do so only by pulling out all of the connections. Soon after this, the Internet site for Network X was shut down and remained shut down for a number of months, which is rather unusual given that Network X is such a large company.

Later that year, the Department of Education put on a concert involving thousands of children. They chose to call it 'Shine'. This was an interesting choice of title, given my experience and other people's experiences of the Department of Education protecting pedophile teachers. A further interesting connection was that Bob Sisterly and Ron Snide organised a meeting between us and the senior managers of the Department of Education.

When we all met, the men acted as if they did not know each other and were meeting for the first time (exchanging business cards, etc). However, when the men thought I was gone (I was in fact standing just out of their sight), it was very clear that they not only knew each other, but that they knew each other extremely well. They were saying things such as "Great to see you again, mate!" and slapping each other on the back! Escape from Bob Sisterly and the Pedophile Board After I discovered what was going on (at least, I started to discover what was going on) I knew I had to break away from Bob Sisterly, Ron Snide and the people they had put on the Board of Management.

The AGM was coming up and I organised for my family to attend. We did this secretly, as we knew that the phone lines were being monitored. On the night of the AGM, the board members were visibly shocked when they saw that members of my family were attending. It transpired that, rather than undertake a Criminal Records Check, the members of the Board had planned to resign on the spot. This served two purposes. One, they avoided having to undergo the Criminal Records Check. Two, the organisation would effectively fold as there would be no-one to take up the Board member positions. This is exactly what Bob Sisterly had wanted from the beginning, but especially since I had begun to uncover the corrupt pedophile police activities and the crimes in Goldtown.

However, as my family had attended the meeting, they were able to take up the positions on the Board, and the organisation did not fold. On the surface, the meeting was very amicable and civilized, Bob Sisterly tried to remain calm, but he ended up storming out of the meeting half-an-hour early. Mother Receives Death Threat from Bob Sisterly My family and I all waited for half-an-hour after the meeting had closed (to recover!) before leaving. We had all come in different cars, and my mother had parked her car in a nearby car park. She walked to her car by herself. We had not learnt to be security-conscious at that stage. As she approached her car she was surprised to see Bob Sisterly there (he had left the meeting half an hour early). He then approached her and said "You had better watch yourself. If you don't, someone might just run over you". He then drove off very suddenly and another board member followed in a different car. My mother and father told me about this incident, which had left my mother very shaken.

Soon after I received a message from Bob Sisterly saying "I only want to help". I was infuriated at the evil of this man, so I phoned his office and left a message with his Personal Assistant, Jan Pummell (I didn't know the significance of her husband's relationship with Bob Sisterly and Network X at this time) saying "Bob has said he just wants to help me. Could you please tell him that it would be helpful if he could undertake the Criminal Records Check that he has avoided for so long. After all, it is designed to only reveal if the person has committed sex offences against children or related offences, like the production of child pornography. Oh, could you also tell him it would be very helpful if he did not threaten members of my family. Death threats against my family really aren't helpful. If you could pass this message on, that would be great. Thanks".

Soon after leaving this message, my mother received a letter from Bob Sisterly. In the letter he stated that he was only joking when he told her to watch out or she'd end up being run over. Yeah, real funny joke. Report to Department of Education - Complaints and Investigation Unit After these experiences I made a complaint to the Complaints and Investigations Unit of the Department of Education. My complaint related to the conduct of teacher Dick Newman, which amounted to repeated acts of misconduct against students, and the police investigation at Goldtown. Interestingly, the head of the Department of Education Complaints and Investigations Unit, Paul Gibbins, was at the very first meeting I had to outline my complaint. It was after this meeting that the material, which I had been assured by Peter Gibbins would remain strictly confidential, was given to Nick Flanagan and Edith Ireland (who subsequently paid a visit to the new President of the Board in an effort to pressure me to drop the complaint). Paul Gibbins then left that posting, but "coincidentally" was brought back to it to finish off the case involving Dick Newman.

Paul Gibbins wrote a letter to me exonerating Dick Newman on all counts "because the witnesses (which I had provided) cannot substantiate your claims". As you know, of the eight witnesses that I had provided to corroborate the case, only one had been contacted - and she RE-CONFIRMED the concerns about Dick Newman. In fact, she stated that she was amazed that it had taken so long for the matter to be investigated!

She was shocked to discover that Dick Newman had been exonerated and that the Department of Education had LIED about her testimony! After I did the telephone round of the witnesses I had listed and learnt that only one had been contacted, I phoned Paul Gibbins to ask how many of the witnesses had in fact been contacted. He said that he didn't know but that he would call me back "within 24 hours". Needless to say, I did not receive a return phonecall from pedophile-protecting Paul Gibbins.

I truly believe that if the parents of children attending Victorian schools new the extent to which pedophile-teachers are being protected by the Department of Education, they would boycott the education system altogether. And if they knew the suffering that some children and families have had to endure as a result of the pedophile-protecting actions of the Department of Education, they would boycott the system on those grounds too. I

am convinced if the parents of children attending the northern region secondary college new of the monster teaching their children, and his shocking and extensive history of abusing students, there would not be a single child enrolled in that school in the future! Leaked Document After numerous meetings concerning the complaint (which I was told would be kept strictly confidential, particularly from Nick Flanagan and his unit), a document was leaked to me form within the Department of Education. This document revealed that the Department planned to absolve Dick Newman from all complaints. The investigation had been totally and completely corrupted in order to absolve Newman.

The grounds for this were that "no complaints of a sexual nature have been made against Dick Newman since 1995". This was unbelievable! So Newman's invitations for students to meet his penis after school were not considered to be sexual! Also, it was stated that as the schools had taken action in relation to each case, there was nothing more to be done. So, it was therefore acceptable for a teacher to commit repeated acts of serious misconduct, against multiple students, at different schools.

It was very clear that this teacher was being actively protected. Theft of Department of Education Files I left a message with the Minister for Education to inform her that I had received information to indicate that the investigation had been seriously corrupted. Soon after, the unit that I lived in was broken into and files containing information about the Department of Education's protection of pedophile teachers were stolen.

This included a letter from a mother pleading for help as her son had been sexually assaulted by a teacher and was now suicidal. She wanted my help as the Department of Education was covering up for this pedophile teacher. Nothing else was stolen from the unit. Visit to the New President of the Board A new President was appointed to the Board, along with other new members. One day, the new President of the Board received a visit from one of the workers in the child protection field.

This woman, Enid Ireland, approached the new President and told him that Detective Senior Sergeant Nick Flanagan knew about the complaint I had made to the Department of Education (indicating a significant breach of confidentiality). She told the new President to cease any association with me and my organisation "for the sake of your professional reputation". The incident spooked the new President enough for him to telephone me in an effort to get me to drop my complaint against Flanagan and his unit, which I refused to do. Thankfully, the new President had the integrity and courage to stick with our organisation despite the pressure he was being put under.

Anonymous reports to Crime Stoppers

Anonymous reports to Crime Stoppers Approximately 12 months had passed when I decided I would make an anonymous call to Crime Stoppers, a phone-in service where people can give anonymous tips to police about crimes. I telephoned Crime Stoppers from a public phone and informed the woman, Katie, of the pedophile network that was operating in Melbourne. She asked me to call back again with further information and I did so.

I told Katie that the network was operating under police protection and at that stage had not given her the police officers' names who were implicated. She then asked me to provide the names of the police officers who were involved. I told her that I was very nervous to do this, as my family and I had suffered very negative repercussions as a result of this group and I didn't want us to have to go through any more traumas.

She spoke to her boss and he promised me that the information I provided would not go to the police officers of concern, and that the information would go straight to the Ethical Standards Division (ESD), which is the same as Internal Investigations. As she and her boss had promised that the information would go straight to ESD, I gave her the names of the officers. When I called back again to find out how the case was proceeding I was shocked when Katie told me that her boss had forced her to send the information to Nick Flanagan's unit! The information had gone directly to Nick Flanagan!! Katie apologised and appeared to be genuinely distressed at what had happened. I asked to speak to her boss and I told him that he had promised that the material would go to ESD, and he exclaimed "Do you realise how serious your allegations are?"

I replied that of-course I did - that's why I wanted the information to go to ESD, and not to the police officers of concern! He said "We don't pass on information to ESD". Katie then got back on the phone and was clearly very upset. She implored me to contact ESD and give them the information myself. Intimidation & Harassment Begins Again Soon after this, my family and I were subjected to harassment and surveillance. For example, nearly every day there would be a car out the front of my parent's home (where I had now moved to, for safety reasons), with two men just sitting there. The men often had large walkie-talkies. The cars often had large, thick aerials. Whenever a member of the family walked out of the house the people in the cars would speed off. However, sometimes we were followed by the people in the cars. The cars were usually very flashy, like large four-wheel-drives or dark shiny sedans. I was often followed by men in white shiny cars with the number plates beginning with VHA and was to later learn that these cars were often used as government vehicles. Sometimes I would come out of a location, say a friend's house, and there would be a man in one of the flashy vehicles just waiting there. It was very menacing and very stressful for my family and I. We also received unusual phone-calls at that time, clicking noises over the phone and sometimes the phone-calls were actively intercepted with heavy breathing or laughter or shuddering screams. My incoming mail was very clearly being interfered with.

Visits from the Mormons

Visits from the Mormons One day my mother and I came out from my parent's house and there was a group of men waiting in a car out the front of our house again. They sped off when we came out, but this time I got in my car and followed them. As I drove towards them (they had turned their car around and were facing me) they flashed their lights at me. I drove around the cul-de-sac, and was shocked when I got to my parent's house again. The men were talking to my mother from in their car. I called for her to get away from the men and she replied "Its OK dear, they're Mormons". I did not believe they were Mormons and I held my hand on the car horn and chased them out of the street. A license check on their car however, seemed to indicate that they really were Mormons, or were using a Mormon-registered car. I did not think they would ever return (especially if they really were Mormons!). However, two weeks later I was getting into my car and saying goodbye to my mother.

The same men approached my mother, not realising I was in the car. They asked if they could ask her a few questions about me. I then stuck my head out of the car window and said "If you've got any questions you can ask me!" They were very surprised that I was there and asked "Why did you chase us out of the street that day. We are just Mormons". I replied "Because some of your behavior is most un-Mormon-like!" The man the said "Like what?" and I replied "Like flashing your lights at me". He then said "Oh, you mean when we were taking photos of you? You didn't like us taking photos of you?".

The 'Mormons' had just admitted to taking photos of me, without my knowledge or consent. I told them to stay away from me and my family. Soon after this I saw the same men in a different car. It was a dark, flashy sedan, similar to those that were often sitting in our street. I got the license plate of this car and gave it to a trusted police office. He told me that the car was owned by a debt-collecting agency, or more likely, a surveillance company as they often used debt-collecting as a front.

The owner of the car, however not one of the men who had been seen in the car, was a Mormon. The Mormons were very clearly conducting surveillance on my family and me. Reports to Deputy Ombudsman After the problems with Crime Stoppers I decided to call the Ombudsman's office and pass on the information I had to them, including the incident with Crime Stoppers. The Deputy Ombudsman, Ian Softman, put me under a great deal of pressure to meet with him and hand over all of my information to him for investigation. I said that I wanted to meet with the new Chief Commissioner of Police, Angela Franklin, as she was dedicated to flushing out bent police. Ian Softman told me that he would try to arrange this. However, he reported that it was not possible and again put me under great pressure to give all of my information to him for investigation.

I finally did succeed in getting an appointment with the Chief Commissioner. Contrary to Ian Softman's claim that she could not meet with me, she had never been informed that I had tried to get a meeting with her through him. She was extremely annoyed when she had been left out of the loop in this way, and the incident just added to my suspicions about the motives of Softman. Thefts of Evidence While I was reporting information to Softman over the phone anonymously, two thefts of evidence occurred.

On the first occasion, the file was stolen from the boot of the car. I had left it there for two hours while I attended to a matter at a school. When I returned I discovered that it had been taken. I rushed home to check that the copy left at my parent's house was still there. I discovered that my parent's house had been broken into, the dogs drugged, and the file stolen from a hiding place. Much was taken, including the letter of admission from Bob Sisterly (of the threat to my mother). Luckily, I had kept a third copy with somebody else. Fires at Network X Studio, Melbourne GPO and Celebrities Home At this time a number of significant fires occurred.

One was at a studio used by Network X. Interestingly, the copy of the network's recent multi-million dollar production had "coincidentally' been removed from the studio two days before the fire. All that survived the fire was a Sesame Street character, which took centre place in a photo of the scene in the leading newspaper's report. Within a week there was another fire, this time at the Melbourne General Post Office. All of the post offices boxes (and their contents) were destroyed, though little else was affected. Finally, again within a week, a suspicious house fire occurred in he home of a well-known television celebrity. This celebrity is a member of the same secret society as Ron Snide.

All that was destroyed in the fire was a collection of videos and photographs. Interestingly, the comment of the celebrity was "It can all be put to bed now". A strange thing to say after your house has just gone up in smoke? A further interesting incident occurred at Melbourne's largest brothel. An armed intruder stole a relatively small amount of cash from the brothel, but was led to the safe where videotapes of clients engaging in sexual activities were kept. Video tapes of clients were "stolen", including those of Greg Neckett, a frequent client of this establishment.

A reliable contact informed me that the theft was actually an "inside job". Within a two-week period, thousands of videos had gone up in smoke or destroyed. These events occurred at the time of the reports being made to Ian Snow. It is also very interesting to note that at that time, the British section of Interpol was in Victoria conducting a "secret" investigation into child pornography. Children Tortured or Die in Mysterious Circumstances It was also around this time that a number of children connected to the child pornography industry were either killed in suspicious circumstances, or tortured. I was working with a young girl and was very concerned for her safety at this time. I told a trusted police officer of my concerns for this girl. A week later she had been rushed to hospital. An unregistered "tank" (her word, meaning a very solidly built car) had come out of nowhere and slammed into the car in which she was a passenger.

Thankfully, she survived. Fears for My Life I had managed to arrange a meeting with the Chief Commissioner of Police (this was no small feat, as there had been many stumbling blocks and it appeared that there were people actively trying to prevent such a meeting). In the weeks leading up to the meeting I was in real fear for my life. On one occasion I came home late at night and saw two men sitting in a car just up from my parent's house.

As no-one was home at my parent's house I drove to the top of the hill to stay with my friends. They did not hear the door-bell, and while I was standing in the street wondering where I would go, the men in the car drove up the hill very slowly, looking for me. I had all of the evidence with me (since the thefts I did not let it out of my sight) and had to quickly hide in the bushes. The men drove up and down the street no less than five times looking for me. I had to cut through the backs of homes in order to get to another friend's house, where I stayed the night. They also witnessed the men driving up and down the street looking for me.

The next evening I heard and saw the same car drive up the hill. As no-one was going to be home that evening I quickly got in my car and drove to another friend's house where I stayed the night. The next morning the friends discovered that their front light had been smashed in. No other houses in the street had been affected. However, the neighbours did report hearing strange cars driving up and down the quiet street late that night.

It was after this that I wondered if I would live to be able to hand over all the information I had to the Chief Commissioner. Meeting with the Chief Commissioner of Police I attended the meeting with the Chief Commissioner of Police along with the trusted police officer who had investigated the house break in and thefts of the files. The Chief Commissioner believed me and was very concerned. She organised for the matter to be thoroughly investigated. The Chief Commissioner asked me if I wanted police protection for my family, which I declined (sometimes that results in more trouble).

She told me I could contact her office whenever necessary. Soon after this my unit was broken into and one of my collectable dolls had the eyes painted over. I phoned the Chief Commissioner's Personal Assistant and let her know that I would be sending the Chief a letter via registered mail. At the start of the conversation the line was clearly intercepted, which the Personal Assistant heard. She told me to call her back from a public phone.

Interestingly, after letting her know that a letter was coming to her via registered mail, the Chief Commissioner did not receive it. I called some weeks later after having received no response, and was told that the letter had somehow been intercepted! All letters to the Chief are signed for, and the person who had signed for the registered letter I had sent was not known in the police force.

High-profile individuals were involved in pedophilia

However, after two days of the Chief Commissioner demanding to know where the letter went, it turned up with a post-it note attached 'Sorry, didn't know where to send this'. Well, to the person it is addressed to might be a start! Ethical Standards Department Investigation gets off to a Questionable Start I had a meeting to begin my statement to the Ethical Standards Department. It was clear that the officer appointed to the case did not believe what I had to report.

While he went to have a smoke, he (accidentally) left me with the report that had been written by another police officer in response to my own report (that had been submitted to the Chief). I could see why the police officer I was dealing with was so dismissive of what I had to say. The report discredited everything that I had reported. It made a mockery of my claim that Ernie Old and other high-profile individuals were involved in pedophilia and stated that there was nothing to support my claims of intimidation and harassment. This was despite the fact that there were numerous witnesses to these events.

The author went on to say that an investigation must be seen to be conducted however, because if the information was to be made public there would be a public outcry. That is, make it look like it is being investigated, but don't do anything! Even more disturbing was the specific recommendation that a Detective Alex Mock be appointed to conduct the investigation. Detective Mock was a close friend and colleague of Nick Flanagan's, and had in fact worked with him in his unit for many years. Indeed, Detective Mock had only left Nick Flanagan's unit three months ago to be transferred to ESD.

It was very interesting timing. At the same time Nick Flanagan receives information that someone is dobbing him in for misconduct, his close friend and colleague gets a transfer to ESD, and ends up with the job of investigating his best mate! How very convenient. The Deputy Ombudsman Gets the Investigation After this turn of events (I reported it all to the Chief Commissioner)., the Deputy Ombudsman, Ian Softman, was given the investigation.

Child Care Centre, Pedophile Network, Police Pedophiles and Network X Ian Softman informed me briefly about a case in the early 1990's. I did my own research into this case and discovered that it involved a creche in the Mornington Peninsula region. A high-profile group of men were sexually abusing, torturing and hypnotising the children. The owner and his wife took the children out of the centre during the day to the homes of the rich and powerful, where the children would be sexually abused, tortured and filmed. The children were also subjected to satanic ritual abuse.

This case was almost identical to those in the U.S (Little Rascals, McMartin and others). The offenders were wealthy and powerful men in the community and included police officers. Video copies of the children being abused were obtained by Network X (How interesting it is that Network X should be involved). However, when the story went public, the video tapes went "missing" and the police claimed that they never received them. Ultimately, the police did not take any action against the owner of the creche, on the grounds that the children were too young to be viewed as credible witnesses.

While there was conclusive evidence that four of the children had been raped or sexually abused while at the day care centre, the owner was never charged. A concerned parent with links to the underworld offered the head of a bikie group $10,000 to inflict enough damage so as to ensure that the owner of the creche could never sexually abuse another child again. The head of the bikie group said that they knew about the owner of the creche, and what he was up to, however, they could not do the job. Much as they would like to, the owner had protection from the very highest levels. He was untouchable.

When the Mornington Peninsula child-care-centre case broke, an investigative journalist infiltrated an elite child-pornography and pedophile club based in Melbourne. Its members were all wealthy and elite members of Melbourne society. It was chaired by the CEO of a major Melbourne Charitable Trust. This article included information on their use of telephone monitoring, courtesy of the group's contacts within Telecom.

It was in a house where the children were sexually abused, tortured and filmed

The children from the Mornington Peninsula child-care-centre reported being taken to a "pink" room with a spa and other significant decor. It was in a house where the children were sexually abused, tortured and filmed (amongst other locations). Three children independently identified the house that they had been taken to, to the investigators. Sure enough, the room had been painted a dusty-pink color, and it had a spa and the other decor items described by the children.

However, as you now know, no further action was taken against the owner of the child-care-centre, nor others suspected of being involved in the ring. What is most significant however, is that the pink house WAS REGISTERED TO THE VICTORIA POLICE!!

I am now working with some of the young survivors of the child-care centre and their families. It is clear that a cover-up of the highest order occurred in 1992, and the children and their families are still suffering from it. Present Days All of this material is currently being investigated by the Deputy Ombudsman. However, the investigation has been marred by suspicious activity.

Perhaps the most significant example is the conduct of the police officer Ian Soft appointed to head the investigation, Detective Jock Westland. My colleague, a counsellor who worked on the 1992 Mornington Peninsula Creche case, provided Jock Westland with information pertaining to a video tape that depicted police actively involved in the satanic-ritual-sexual abuse of children from the creche.

This is highly significant information. However, I discovered from one of the other investigators that Jock Westland had decided not to pass this information on for further investigation. In fact, his notes read "This witness (my colleague) has no information of significance". In addition to this, Jock Westland refused to investigate my claims of intimidation and harassment on the grounds that I was "paranoid".

This is despite the fact that there are many witnesses to certain events who can corroborate my claims, and indeed, several have provided Statutory Declarations to do so. Jock Westland has been under "investigation" for these actions for two months now, and I am yet to find out whether he will continue to be involved in this investigation. If he remains on the case we can be sure that this so-called investigation is just another example of high-level white-wash and cover-up of organised pedophilia and child pornography in Australia.

A final note on the Department of Education investigation. I received a letter stating that Dick Newman had been cleared of all charges, as the witnesses could not substantiate my claims. However, of the pool of eight witnesses I had provided ONLY ONE HAD BEEN CONTACTED and she clearly re-affirmed the concerns about Dick Newman. Another cover-up of the highest order and complete protection given to one of the untouchable pedophile elite.

P.S. All the real names of these child abusers are kept at several locations with different people. Should anything happen to me or anyone associated with me or should I or my organisation be harassed in any way, the names will be revealed immediately from several sources.

There are pedophile rings which include government officials, politicians, TV executives, TV presenters and the police.

 

This is how it works worldwide.

By Reina Michaelson
 

federaljack.com/ebooks/ / Dr Reina Michaelson - Declarepeace.org.uk / http://webcache.

 
"My child abuse prevention organisation" was infiltrated by members of a police-protected top pedophile ring in Australia.
 
"The members of the network include senior management and executives from a major television network, media celebrities, high-ranking politicians, police officers in charge of pedophile and child pornography investigations, senior management representatives from the Department of Education, directors of "child-focused" service clubs, wealthy businessmen, and others.

Roberts, Tom (1856-1931) - 1888-1890 Shearing the Rams (National Gallery of Victoria, Australia)

 
"In 1995 I started running Australia's first child sexual abuse prevention program in schools... My assistant and I were at a particular high school in the northern region working with Year 9 boys.

"We received a note written anonymously by one of the boys asking 'What do you do if you get raped by a teacher and no-one will believe you? What happens if you get raped and you enjoy it?'...

A teacher called 'Dick Newman' came under suspicion.

(Names in this article have been disguised)

"Later that afternoon I learnt that the car I had been driving had been rammed in the school's car-park..."

"When I interviewed the boy who had asked the questions about sexual abuse by a teacher and not being believed, he huddled into a foetal position, started crying, and said he could not tell me what happened.

"When I asked him why he couldn't tell me, he replied that he had been threatened with his life. His best friend told me he would never tell what had happened....

"I was to learn later that there is a Satanic cult operating in Goldtown...

"The Satanic cult is very powerful within the town, and was headed up by the most powerful and influential families of the town... 'Jeff Kennett', the powerful politician ... has significant 'business operations' extremely close to Goldtown, and he was driven (by his driver) to this location every week.

"Mick was introduced to the satanic cult as a very young child by an extended relative...

"From everything that I have been told by Mick, the cult appears to be the Order Templis Orientus (Illuminati), operating in Australia.

"Mick now suffers from Multiple Personality Disorder /DID but has survived his experiences remarkably well considering the traumas he has been through.

"As a child Mick was forced to attend blood-rituals, where animals and small children were sacrificed and their blood and organs consumed.

"Mick was required to clean up the blood after these rituals.

"The children and babies were street children or were taken from orphanages, so that they could not be traced and no-one would know, or care, if they went missing.

"The rituals were spoken in Latin and were clearly satanic. The rituals took place at various locations, including Goldtown.

"Mick and other children would be driven to the rituals in the boots of cars.

"The members of the cult were extremely powerful members of society. There were numerous politicians (mainly from the conservative party).

"These people would often speak of important events before they would actually occur.

"Mick was also sexually abused by 'Gerald Oanasis', the famous television personality and professional partner of 'Bert Newton'.

"Mick was one of the many children who were used to 'host' parties of the cult members.

"At these parties the children acted as waiters and were naked...

"Children who tried to escape were killed, often in front of the other children in order to control the children through fear.

"Once Mick and another child had tried to escape but were caught. The other child was murdered by having her head smashed open with a rock. Her body was then dumped in a nearby mineshaft. Mick was spared the same fate, as he was told that he was the 'chosen one', selected to carry on the traditions of the group."


www.anilaggrawal.com...

"Mick was forced to participate in the production of child pornography, including movies as well as still photographs. This involved sexual activity with other children as well as adults. He would get paid a small amount for his sexual 'services', while the relative who brought him to the events would get paid a large amount of money.

"As he got older, Mick was no longer used for sexual purposes by the group but was required to recruit new younger children. When he was old enough (in his 20's), Mick was able to escape the group but they continue to contact him with threats...

"I discovered that there is an Australian Internet-based group called 'Shine'.

"The site includes a membership section where members are able to exchange photos ... It is a child pornography club that operates similar to the notorious Wonderland club...

"My family and I were subjected to harassment and surveillance. For example, nearly every day there would be a car out the front of my parent's home (where I had now moved to, for safety reasons), with two men just sitting there.

"The men often had large walkie-talkies... I was often followed by men in white shiny cars with the number plates beginning with VHA and was to later learn that these cars were often used as government vehicles...

"Brian Hardiman informed me briefly about a case in the early 1990's.

"I did my own research into this case and discovered that it involved a creche in the Mornington Peninsula region.

"A high-profile group of men were sexually abusing, torturing and hypnotising the children.

"The owner and his wife took the children out of the centre during the day to the homes of the rich and powerful, where the children would be sexually abused, tortured and filmed.

"The children were also subjected to satanic ritual abuse. This case was almost identical to those in the U.S (Little Rascals, McMartin and others).

"The offenders were wealthy and powerful men in the community and included police officers.

"Video copies of the children being abused were obtained ... However, when the story went public, the video tapes went 'missing' and the police claimed that they never received them.

"Ultimately, the police did not take any action against the owner of the creche, on the grounds that the children were too young to be viewed as credible witnesses. While there was conclusive evidence that four of the children had been raped or sexually abused while at the day care centre, the owner was never charged.

"A concerned parent with links to the underworld offered the head of a bikie group $10,000 to inflict enough damage so as to ensure that the owner of the creche could never sexually abuse another child again. The head of the bikie group said that they knew about the owner of the creche, and what he was up to, however, they could not do the job. Much as they would like to, the owner had protection from the very highest levels. He was untouchable.

Three children independently identified the house that they had been taken to, to the investigators. Sure enough, the room had been painted a dusty-pink color, and it had a spa and the other decor items described by the children.

"However, as you now know, no further action was taken against the owner of the child-care-centre, nor others suspected of being involved in the ring. What is most significant however, is that the pink house WAS REGISTERED TO THE VICTORIA POLICE...

"A final note on the Department of Education investigation. I received a letter stating that Dick Newman had been cleared of all charges, as the witnesses could not substantiate my claims. However, of the pool of eight witnesses I had provided ONLY ONE HAD BEEN CONTACTED and she clearly re-affirmed the concerns about Dick Newman. Another cover-up of the highest order and complete protection given to one of the untouchable pedophile elite."

SEX SCANDAL IN AUSTRALIA

In 2007 and 2008, David Campbell was Police Minister in New South Wales, in Australia.

Campbell, former Police Minister.

In 2007 and 2008, David Campbell was Police Minister in New South Wales, in Australia. (David Campbell.)
 
In May 2010 it was revealed that, while Transport Minister in New South Wales, the married David Campbell used a ministerial car to visit Ken's of Kensington, a gay sex club in Sydney. (Australian MP resigns over sex scandal
 
Ken's of Kensington has facilities for "sex on the premises, including private cubicles and specially-themed fantasy rooms."
 
There has been speculation that Campbell's personal life could have been used to blackmail him while he was Police Minister in 2007 and 2008.
 
In 2008 the former New South Wales Police Minister Matthew Brown was forced to resign after dancing semi-naked on a green leather sofa and simulating a sex act.
 
In 2008, the former New South Wales Aboriginal Affairs Minister Milton Orkopoulos was jailed for child sex.
 
In 1999, two journalists from Australia's Sun-Herald claimed to have seen evidence of the ritual abuse of children.
 
They interviewed six mothers whose children had disclosed experiences of SRA and organised abuse in New South Wales.
 
The children's disclosures were corroborating, although they had never met one another, and they had been able to draw representations of "satanic" ritual sites which were similar to ritual sites uncovered by police on the central coast of New South Wales.(List of satanic ritual abuse allegations. )

In the late 1980s, a number of children at a daycare centre in the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia, began disclosing experiences of organised and ritualistic sexual abuse to their parents and the police.[3]
 
Their disclosures included instances in which they were taken in a car from the creche to a nearby house, undressed by adults and sexually assaulted, video-taped and filmed while naked, and urinated and defecated upon by adults.
The children disclosed that some of the abusers wore police uniforms....

In 2002, Chief Commissioner Christine Nixon refers complaints about the mishandling of the case by police to the Victorian Ombudsman.

An officer from the Ethical Standards Department was stood down a year later from the Ombudsman's investigation for "incompetence" after failing to pass on information from two key witnesses, and claiming that he never spoke to them when phone records proved that he had.
One of the witnesses referred to a tape of child pornography showing men in police uniforms sexually assaulting children from the daycare centre, however, this lead was never followed up by the police.

Another witness identified the house in which the children had been assaulted as being owned by a police officer.[7]

The principal of a private college on the Mornington Peninsula repeatedly told the Department of Human Services that a 12-year-old boy disclosed ongoing sexual abuse by an organised group of men wearing police uniforms.

 
According to the principal, all records of the child's complaint vanished.
A Victoria Police spokesman said he was not aware that files had disappeared. The police declined to press charges, saying the boy had been "too well groomed" by the pedophiles and probably would not testify in court.[8]

Sexual abuse was common at Bindoon Boys Town, in Australia.

The boys called their Catholic guardians the 'Christian Buggers'.

In 2001, an inquiry into Bindoon, by the Australian Senate (The sad truth behind Britain's lost children), was told about:

 
1. Rape.
 
2. Children scrambling for breadcrumbs on the floor.
 
3. A boy being forced to shoot and skin a horse he considered to be his only friend.
 
In the two decades after World War II, the UK government took around 10,000 children from UK Children's Homes and sent them to Australia.
 
Many of these children were to become a form of slave labour.
 
Some of the children ended up at Bindoon Boys Town.
 
At Bindoon there were regular floggings and there was regular child sexual abuse.

Mick Snell, who was sent to the Methodists Dalmar House in Sydney, says: "A lot are starting to top themselves... I dream I'm back there and I'm locked up, being verbally abused and whacked. I wake up in a cold sweat." (The sad truth behind Britain's lost children)
 
Snell had to get up before 4am to milk the cows and had to work until dark.
 

"You had no one to turn to," says Snell.

Outsiders would take some boys out for the day.

"I know for a fact they were rock spiders (paedophiles). The kids that were involved, they didn't like talking about it," says Snell.

 
At Bindoon there was no teaching and several former inmates are illiterate.

In January, Exaro News and the Sunday People revealed that the Conservative Group for Homosexual Equality (CGHE) “strongly recommended” that its members visit the Elm Guest House, which was being used as a front for a paedophile ring that sexually abused children as young as 10 who had been procured from children’s homes run by Richmond Council. Full article

In 1983, Margaret Thatcher’s Home Secretary, Leon Brittan, wrote to the CGHE and as well as saying he supported the wholly reasonable aim of reducing the age of homosexual consent to 18, he told them that the Conservative Party supported “all minorities”. He didn’t specify whether this support included the paedophile minority.

CG24683The Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), who campaigned for the age of consent to be reduced to 4 years old, had successfully infiltrated the gay liberation movement and positioned themselves as an oppressed minority group. They had also persuaded politicians to support their cause, and they claimed that two MPs were on their mailing list.

Although it may seem far-fetched that any government would support a paedophile organisation, you only have to look at the Thatcher government’s record on child abuse to realise that the rights of paedophiles were given more importance than the rights of children. They refused to ban the Paedophile Information Exchange despite a petition which attracted over a million signatures from members of the public. Read more

The Conservative Group for Homosexual Equality were keen supporters of Thatcher, as we can see from these Capital Gay articles from April/May 1982, although she was less keen to show her support for them. Was this becase she was aware of their connections to the Elm Guest House and wanted to distance herself from them?

CG21582CG28582Some Labour politicians also supported paedophiles. The National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL), now known as Liberty, whose officials included Harriet Harman, Patricia Hewitt, Jack Dromey, and Henry Hodge, were affiliated to PIE. In 1978 the NCCL passed a resolution which stated that images of child abuse should only be considered indecent if it could be proved that the children involved had suffered harm. Read more

Former Liberal leader David Steel publicly attacked Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens for naming the senior diplomat Sir Peter Hayman as a paedophile. Liberal MP Sir Cyril Smith attended the Elm Guest House, and was also linked to child murderer Sidney Cooke, and leading PIE member Peter Righton, whose paedophile network preyed on children in schools and children’s homes across the UK.

There were also powerful Establishment figures outside the main political parties who were involved in covering up paedophile networks. The Attorney General, Sir Michael Havers, threatened Fleet Street over their coverage of the Elm Guest House paedophile network, and effectively stopped them from reporting on it after August 1982. Havers, along with the Director of Public Prosecutions, Sir Thomas Hetherington, protected paedophile diplomat Sir Peter Hayman, and Hetherington allowed the leader of the Paedophile Information Exchange to flee the country and escape a jail sentence.

 


The Guardian have leapt to the defence of convicted paedophile Graham Ovenden. They say we should forget Ovenden’s crimes against children, and appreciate his ‘art’ ,which includes images of child sexual abuse, on its own merits. The author of the article, Rachel Cooke, says she wouldn’t feel any differently about  Ovenden’s work “even if the children were naked”. Read more

Graham Ovenden

The Guardian’s favourite paedophile artist

This follows on from Jon Henley’s deeply sinister article ‘Paedophilia: bringing dark desires to light‘ which was published in the Guardian in January. This article used former chairman of the Paedophile Information Exchange, Tom O’Carroll, as a source, and peddled PIE’s old lie about child sexual abuse causing no harm. The article linked to a sympathetic biography of O’Carroll, but failed to mention that he was convicted for possessing 50,000 images and films of child abuse, including children as young as six being raped and tortured.

The Guardian’s favourite child rape enthusiast

The Guardian refuse to cover the Elm Guest House story or any of the other new investigations into historical child abuse such as Lambeth and Kincora.

Most worryingly of all, they won’t cover the Peter Righton story despite being in possession of all the information that has been handed to the current police investigation. This was revealed earlier this year by the source of Tom Watson’s PMQ. The Peter Righton paedophile network preyed on vulnerable children in care homes and schools for decades. It’s a national scandal involving some of the most powerful people in our society exploiting and abusing some of the most vulnerable.

The Guardian used to lead the way on covering child abuse with a series of powerful articles by Nick Davies in the 1990s. When did that change, and why are they priorotising the rights of paedophiles over the rights of abused children?


“This was not just a ring – it’s more like the Olympic rings, interlocking on a ­large scale. It went everywhere. I believe it went to the heart of the Establishment.”

Peter Righton

Peter Righton

Anyone who relies on the BBC for news will be completely unaware that there are currently a number of police investigations into historical child sexual abuse as a result of Tom Watson’s PMQ last October.

One of these investigations focusses on a powerful network of paedophiles linked to a child care expert called Peter Righton. This network was systematically abusing children in care homes and schools across the UK for several decades. The original police investigation in the early 1990s was shut down and the matter has been covered up for 20 years.

Peter Righton was protected by other paedophiles including “a former senior government minister”, and as a result he was never jailed for his long career of sexually abusing children. However, a BBC Inside Story documentary in 1994 called ‘The Secret Life of a Paedophile’ trashed his reputation, which was of some consolation to the social work professionals who had exposed him but hadn’t seen him brought to justice.

The BBC’s reputation is in tatters after the Jimmy Savile scandal, and they are seen by many around the world as an organisation that condones paedophilia. Something they could do to help rebuild their reputation would be to show the Peter Righton documentary at a peak-time slot, which would educate the British public about the national scandal of a paedophile network preying on vulnerable children. The British newspapers, with the exception of the Sunday People and the Mirror, have also been silent about the Peter Righton investigation, but this must change and the BBC must take the lead.

The BBC have a duty to respond to any complaints, so I would suggest complaining about the lack of news coverage of the Peter Righton investigation, and demand that the Inside Story documentary is shown at a peak-time slot, with a new introduction explaining the current investigation.

The Times (London), 11th December 1999
by Stewart Tendler

An elderly church organist who was abducted and murdered may have been killed in a revenge attack related to paedophile activities, police sources said yesterday.

As detectives continued to question three men and a juvenile, police sources suggested that the victim, John Smith, 72, may have had paedophile links. When armed police raided a flat in Islington, North London, on Wednesday night, Mr Smith’s body was discovered hidden in a cupboard. He is believed to have been strangled.

Mr Smith, who lived alone in St Leonards-on-Sea in West Sussex and was a bachelor, was assistant director of music at Monkton Combe School, in Bath, in the late 1950s. It is believed that his parents both lived in a nursing home in the area, although his mother recently died. A spokesman for the school said it was believed that Mr Smith had a “behind the scenes” role and would not have been involved in direct teaching.

Mr Smith was well known in his home town for being the organist at a number of churches in Hastings and St Leonards.

The Rev Iain Morrison, rector of the Hastings Old Town parish, said: “What has happened to him is all very mysterious. I can’t think of any reason for him to have been abducted. It’s all very sad.” The Rev Bernard Crosby, for whom Mr Smith played the organ the day before he died, said: “I liked him a great deal. He was very upright, very steady. He used to get on with his job, a very quiet unassuming man. I don’t know what could have happened, he was just not that sort of person.”

The case is now the centre of an inquiry, directed by the Police Complaints Authority, into how the kidnap was investigated.Officers from Sussex, Surrey and the Yard were involved in the case, but the inquiry is likely to centre on how Surrey officers, who were in overall charge, controlled it.


Islington Tribune, 7th March 2008
by Tom Foot

DETECTIVES investigating sinister discoveries in a Jersey children’s home have not ruled out links with a former Islington paedophile ring.

The skull of a child was found in the grounds of Channel Islands youth hostel Haut de la Garenne last month and 160 alleged victims of abuse have since come forward.

Jersey police told the Tribune they were aware of a list of associates of Nicholas Rabet.

The former deputy superintendent of Conewood Street children’s home in Grosvenor Avenue, born and raised in Jersey, fled to Asia following an investigation into child abuse in 12 Islington care homes during the mid-1990s.

The 57-year-old committed suicide in 2006 awaiting sentence for multiple sex charges in Thailand.

The police probe follows revelations by investigative journalist Eileen Fairweather, who exposed the Islington child abuse scandal about links between Rabet and the current Jersey investigation. She believes care workers in Islington were grooming children for pornographic films and recruiting them for abuse in Jersey.

A Jersey police spokesman told the Tribune: “We are not naming suspects, either alive or dead, as a matter of policy. Names have been put forward to us and we will be adding them to our list of inquiries.”

Councillor Ursula Woolley, Islington’s chief executive for children and young people, said: “Should these investigations reveal any link with Islington, we will investigate and take action.”

Rabet was born in Jersey where he forged links with Neil Hocquart who was found guilty of child abuse with another social worker from Jersey, and together they regularly took children to a home in Sussex.

Police found indecent images of a 10-year-old boy once in the care of Islington Social Services.

Following an inquiry, Rabet fled to Thailand where he was later charged with abusing 30 boys, some as young as six. He died of a drugs overdose aged 57.

In a national Sunday newspaper, Ms Fairweather reported two other Jersey-born Islington care workers, who cannot be named for legal reasons, who are believed to have sent children to Rabet’s centre.

Many have not been prosecuted despite overwhelming evidence against them, she claims.

DC Cook, who investigated the Islington care homes’ abuse and is helping Jersey police with their investigations, told Ms Fairweather: “I’ve thought about Rabet all week.

“The hierarchy does not like these inquiries.”


The Independent, 15th February 1994

ART / Portrait of the artist as an accused man; Graham Ovenden paints young female nudes, like the one on this page. Photographic studies for this portrait were removed from his house by the police. So were two photographs by Lewis Carroll, also reproduced here. They are now being exhibited under the title The Obscene Publications Squad Versus Art. Iain Gale reports

Early in the morning of Wednesday 10 March 1993, officers from the Obscene Publications Squad of the Metropolitan Police burst into a house in Liskeard, Cornwall, which they believed to be at the centre of a child pornography ring. They came away with one suspect, 28 boxes of negatives, 67 videos and a large quantity of photographs. Losing little time, they announced that they had ”smashed” an extensive paedophile ring which involved hundreds of children and had been carefully built up over 20 years.

As it turned out, what they had ”smashed” was the life of an artist – their suspect Graham Ovenden – who had built his international reputation on sensitive paintings and photographs of children, some of them nude. The so-called paedophile ring was in fact a loose association of artists, including Peter Blake, Graham Arnold and David Inshaw and the photographer Ron Oliver, who had himself been the subject of a similar raid two months earlier.

Typical of the videos removed by the police were Little Dorrit and Miss Marple; the most outlandish was Star Trek II. Apart from a small group of Ovenden’s nude studies, the photographs that were removed to Scotland Yard were mainly early photographs of children (mostly clothed) by such as George Bernard Shaw and Lewis Carroll.

The works were recently returned to their owner. As in the case of Ron Oliver, no charges have been made against Ovenden, and no apologies offered. The confiscated photographic exhibits are now about to go on show at a London gallery, enabling the public to judge for itself whether or not they are obscene.

”I’m going to be showing the stupidity of it all,” says Nicky Akehurst, owner of the London gallery putting on the exhibition. ”The art world is tackling this issue head on.” (A petition signed by Sir Hugh Casson, Laurie Lee, Peter Blake and Lucinda Lambton was important in persuading the police to return the photographs.) ”But it needs to be addressed by politicians and the public generally. That’s what I’m trying to do. We’ll show a few of Graham’s nudes, but apart from those it will be what the police took.”

What they took was part of the extensive collection of Victorian photographs that Ovenden and his wife have assembled over the past 20 years. Ovenden is a world-recognised authority on the genre and has written books on the photographic work of Lewis Carroll, D O Hill, Robert Adamson and Lewis Hine. His Pre-Raphaelite Photographers is the classic work on the subject, displaying his consummate knowledge of the work of such as D G Rossetti and Julia Margaret Cameron. It was through his study of these artists that Ovenden found the inspiration for the painted and photographic portraits of girls with which he has made his name.

Born in 1943, Ovenden trained as an artist at the Royal College of Art and in 1975 was one of the founding members, along with Blake, Inshaw and Arnold, of the Brotherhood of Ruralists, a loosely-knit group of painters who found inspiration in the rural mysticism of William Blake and Samuel Palmer and the ideal of ”truth to materials” expressed in the work of the late Pre- Raphaelites. Ovenden’s own style owes something both to the Pre-Raphaelites and to the modern French painter Balthus, whose chosen subject matter he also shares. Ovenden depicts the nude female figure just at that point at which it is beginning the transformation from girl to woman. They are difficult images which do not suit the conventional taste of much of the British public. Nevertheless, the developing female form has long been a legitimate and valid subject for art, from the nymphs of Italian Mannerism to Gauguin’s smouldering Tahitians.

Ovenden began to explore this perilous territory in a series of paintings and photographs which he made with Peter Blake in 1970, on the theme of Carroll’s Alice. Whereas Blake moved on to other themes, Ovenden chose to delve deeper into the pre-pubescent subconscious, producing numerous paintings and photo-graphs of children, naked and clothed. Among them were commissioned portraits, many of them of the children of distinguished parents. Now, under the ambiguous 1978 Protection of Children Act (which states, ”It is an offence for a person to take, or permit to be taken, any indecent photograph of a child”) Ovenden’s erstwhile clients are also liable to prosecution.

That this is iniquitous is born out by the few photographic works by Ovenden that are included in the exhibition of formerly confiscated material. In what amounts almost to a pastiche of its Victorian antecedents, one of the works on view in the exhibition – a photographic study for the painting Elinore (see main picture, right) – depicts a girl, side on, in gentle chiaroscuro. The initial focus of our attention is her face – a mask of contemplation in which the artist has attempted to capture the confused emotions present in his sitter’s mind. The pose is relaxed, her own. Here, as in all his images, painted or photographed, Ovenden takes great care with light. His intention is not to expose his subject to the viewer, but to enable us to understand her predicament, to create what he sees as a reflective, poignant eulogy to fleeting innocence and beauty.

Graham Ovenden’s art lies on a meandering art historical line which runs from the putti of Raphael, through Millais’ Bubbles and the bohemian nudes of Augustus John and the Bloomsbury artists. In their painted state, Ovenden’s girls, like those of John, can be classed as high art and by virtue of this are deemed acceptable. But any artist crossing over into the medium of photography immediately invites the accusation of pornography. It is significant that a sizeable chunk of the booklet that Ovenden has written in his defence should be devoted to the ways in which he alleges the police have re-photographed and cropped his photographic prints in order to deliberately distort the images for production as evidence for any subsequent trial.

The raids on Ovenden, and Oliver before him, amount, says Akehurst, to a ”witch hunt”. ”The police have targeted photographers,” Akehurst says. ”Artists are so vulnerable. And it’s never just one person. There’s got to be a ring.” For Akehurst, those who see a paedophile at work in the art of Ovenden are simply seeing what they want to see. Their view may yet prevail: while no charges have been made, Ovenden, given the outspoken nature of his own defence, believes they cannot be far off.

You might choose to call Ovenden’s work many things – tender, charming, kitsch, sentimental, mawkish, even inept. But pornographic, degrading and obscene? What Ovenden’s nudes really demonstrate is not a covert perversity but an openness and honesty which disappeared with Victorian hypocrisy. The Victorians ignored the difficult sexual questions present in the growing child by denying them, by covering them up. For Ovenden each one of his young female nudes offers a means to explore fundamental mysteries within the human condition.

Ovenden’s paintings and photographs are no more indecent than the other works on show at the Akehurst Gallery, which also helped the police with their enquiries – a portrait by Lewis Carroll of the Archbishop of Canterbury, snapshots of Ovenden’s fellow Ruralists, a photograph of the artist’s daughter in a Laura Ashley dress, one of Peter Blake’s Alice photographs from 1970 and, the piece de resistance, an official photograph of the young Princess, now Queen, Elizabeth.


Daily Mail, 2nd March 2008
by Eileen Fairweather

The award-winning journalist who exposed terrible abuse in Islington children’s homes now reveals horrifying links to sinister discoveries at Jersey’s Haut de la Garenne.

I met the frightened policeman at an isolated country restaurant, many miles from his home and station. Detective Constable Peter Cook had finally despaired, and decided to blow the whistle to a reporter.

He was risking his career, so made me scribble my notes into a tiny pad beneath the tablecloth.

He had uncovered a vicious child sex ring, with victims in both Britain and the Channel Islands, and he wanted me to get his information to police abuse specialists in London.

Incredibly, he claimed that his superiors had barred him from alerting them.

He feared a cover-up: many ring members were powerful and wealthy. But I did not think him paranoid: I specialised in exposing child abuse scandals and knew, from separate sources, of men apparently linked to this ring.

They included an aristocrat, clerics and a social services chief. Their friends included senior police officers.

Repeatedly, inquiries by junior detectives were closed down, so I, a journalist, was asked to convey confidential information from one police officer to others. It seemed surreal.

I duly met trusted contacts at the National Criminal-Intelligence Squad. That was more than 12 years ago, and little happened – until now.

Last weekend, a child’s remains were found at a former children’s home on Jersey amid claims of a paedophile ring.

More than 200 children who lived at Haut de la Garenne have described horrific sexual and physical torture dating back to the Sixties.

When I heard the news, my eyes filled with tears. I felt heartbroken, not least at my own powerlessness. I have known for more than 15 years about Channel Islands paedophiles victimising children in the British care system.

I was relieved that the truth was finally emerging. But I felt devastated. Children had probably been murdered. I had so not wanted to be right.

I stood outside the forbidding Victorian building of Haut de la Garenne this week and watched grim-faced police in blue plastic forensic suits hunt its bricked-up secret basements for children’s bones.

Outside, a large cross commemorates the 35 former residents who died fighting for their country: “Their names liveth forever.” Oh yes?

What are the names of the children whose bodies may now be dug up – and why did no one miss and search for them earlier? Jersey’s residents and political class must ask these questions.

Disturbing allegations about the murder of children in care have characterised other scandals I investigated in Britain, but today I can reveal for the first time the links between the abuse I uncovered at care homes in Islington, North London, and the horrifying discoveries on Jersey.

I have never before written that 14-year-old Jason Swift, killed in 1985 by a paedophile gang, is believed to have lived in Islington council’s Conewood Street home.

Two sources claimed this when I investigated Islington’s 12 care homes for The Mail on Sunday’s sister paper, the London Evening Standard, in the early Nineties.

But hundreds of children’s files mysteriously disappeared in Islington and, without documentation, this was not evidence enough.

We did, however, prove that every home included staff who were paedophiles, child pornographers or pimps. Concerned police secretly confirmed that several Islington workers were believed “networkers”, major operators in the supply of children for abuse and pornography.

Some of these were from the Channel Islands or regularly took Islington children there on unofficial visits. In light of the grisly discoveries at Haut de la Garenne, the link now seems significant, but at the time we were so overwhelmed by abuse allegations nearer home that this connection never emerged.

What we did report prompted the sort of vehement official denials that have come to characterise child abuse claims. Margaret Hodge, then council leader, denounced us as Right-wing “gutter journalists” who supposedly bribed children to lie.

Our findings were eventually vindicated by Government-ordered inquiries, and two British Press Awards. Yet I knew we had only scraped the surface of Islington’s corruption.

Now Jersey police under deputy chief Lenny Harper – a ‘new broom’ outsider – have been secretly investigating a paedophile ring linked to the island’s care homes for months, I have been struck by common factors with the British abuse scandals: innocent-sounding sailing trips, where children can be isolated and abused, away from prying eyes, then delivered to other abusers; the familiar smearing of whistle-blowers; and the suppression of damning reports.

Jersey social worker Simon Bellwood was sacked early last year after speaking out, and popular health minister Stuart Syvret, 42, was fired in November after publicising the suppressed Sharp Report into abuse allegations.

“The smears on me are water off a duck’s back,” this brave man told me yesterday in a St Helier cafe. But his hands shook.

I have never assumed that the officials, politicians and police who cover up abuse scandals are all paedophiles, nor does Syvret.

“They just want a quiet life and their competency unquestioned. I’m angrier with them than the abusers, and want several prosecuted for obstructing the course of justice. The police are considering charges,” he added.

Traditionally, police fear paedophile ring inquiries as expensive and unproductive. Traumatised witnesses can be hazy and collapse under cross-examination.

Convictions are rare. Police therefore raid suspected abusers for paedophile pornography, which more easily yields convictions.

Well – in theory. In June 1991, police in Cambridgeshire raided the home of Neil Hocquart who abused children in Britain and Guernsey and, with a social worker from Jersey, supplied child pornography for a huge sex ring.

It should have been a major breakthrough. But, as DC Cook told me, it went horribly wrong.

A handful of child sex-ring victims become “recruiters”. They are not beaten but rewarded with gifts,

money and ‘love’. In return, their job is to procure other victims. Such a man, my whistle-blower believed, was Neil Frederick Hocquart.

Hocquart, original surname Foster, was abused while in care in Norfolk and was eventually ‘befriended’ by an older man, merchant seaman Captain H. Hocquart of Vale, in Guernsey, whose surname he adopted.

Captain Hocquart was not the only Channel Islands man with an interest in children in care. Satan worshipper Edward Paisnel, “The Beast of Jersey”, was given a 30-year sentence in 1971 on 13 counts of raping girls and boys. The building contractor fostered children and played Father Christmas at Haut de la Garenne in the Sixties.

Cambridgeshire police, in a joint operation with Scotland Yard’s Obscene Publications Squad (now the Paedophile Unit), raided Neil Hocquart’s Swaffham Manor home in June 1991.

They found more than 100 child-sex videos and 300 photographs of children. At nearby Ely they found his friend, Walter Clack, trying to dispose of a sick home video of a middle-aged man abusing a boy.

Who were the children in these films and photos? Police needed properly to question these men. But they never got the chance.

Hocquart secretly took an overdose of anti-depressant dothiepin and died at Addenbrooke’s Hospital soon after his arrest. Was his suicide a last act of loyalty?

DC Cook told me incredulously that a senior officer broke with normal procedure and informed Clack, before he was questioned, that the other suspect was dead. Clack then blamed the dead man for everything, and escaped with a £5,000 fine – and inherited one third of Hocquart’s wealth, at his bequest.

Wills featured strongly in the fortunesof the Islington and Channel Islands paedophiles. Police discovered that Neil Hocquart inherited his wealth from the Guernsey sea captain.

But Captain Hocquart possibly paid dearly for befriending orphans: he died soon after making out his will in the younger man’s favour.

Scotland Yard detectives told me they found at least “two or three” wills of older men who died of apparent heart attacks shortly after leaving everything to Neil Hocquart.

The officers cheerfully called him a “murderer”. These deaths were never investigated: the suspect, after all, was now also dead.

Hocquart wasn’t the only person in his circle to become rich this way. A Jersey-born friend of Hocquart’s, who started his childcare career on the island before becoming a key supplier of children from Islington’s care homes to paedophile rings, similarly inherited a fortune.

Nicholas John Rabet was for many years deputy superintendent of Islington council’s home at 114 Grosvenor Avenue.

He and a colleague, another single man later barred from social work by the Department of Health, both took children on unauthorised trips to Jersey. Allegations mounted but nothing was done.

Rabet’s opportunities to obtain victims massively increased after he befriended the widow of an American oil millionaire. She died after rewriting her will in his favour.

He inherited her manor house at Cross in Hand near Heathfield, Sussex, where he opened a children’s activity centre, and regularly invited children in Islington’s care to stay.

Hocquart spent £13,000 on quad bikes for the centre, called The Stables, and he and Walter Clack became “volunteers” there.

Hocquart befriended one young boy and took him on a sailing trip, where there would be little risk of being spotted. Police found disturbing film from the trip of men spraying the naked child with water.

But Hocquart left the boy another third of his money, and he denied abuse when questioned.

Police also found at Hocquart’s home naked photos of a boy of about ten, whom they learned was in the care of Islington social services. I shall call him Shane.

Sussex police raided Rabet’s children’s centre. But he had plenty of warning and, they believed, emptied it of child pornography. However officers still found a “shrine to boys”, with suggestive photographs everywhere, including pictures of Shane.

They approached Shane, at his Islington children’s home. He tearfully confirmed months of abuse. But their attempts to investigate further were thwarted by Islington Council.

Many professionals had, for years, expressed grave fears about Rabet, and put their concerns in writing. But Islington falsely told Sussex officers it had no file material on Rabet or his alleged victim.

Staff had in fact been ordered to find the complaints and deliver them to the office of Lyn Cusack, Islington’s assistant director of social services – but they were handed over to Sussex police only when I revealed their existence.

Islington’s appalling mishandling of vital records was highlighted by the independent White inquiry into the abuse in Islington children’s homes, which found that “at assistant director level . . . many confidential files were destroyed by mistake, although there is no evidence of conspiracy.”

During the investigation into Rabet, Islington also refused to interview any other children in care, or, scandalously, help Sussex police identify other children in Rabet’s photos.

With only Shane’s evidence to rely on, police decided not to prosecute.

I traced Shane. He was furious that Rabet was never prosecuted, but not surprised. “This goes right to the top,” he said, “You have no idea how big this is.”

He showed me photos of another victim, a young Turkish boy with a sweet shy smile whom Rabet also regularly took from the Islington home to spend weekends at his manor house.

Shane didn’t know where the boy was now, he just disappeared. I was never able to find the boy, either. Many children in care are missed by no one.

I retraced Shane two years ago to tell him that justice had finally caught up with Rabet. Third World police had succeeded where Britain’s finest in Cambridgeshire, Sussex, London and Jersey had failed.

Rabet fled to Thailand’s notorious child sex resort of Pattaya after the White inquiry. He was arrested there in spring 2006 and charged with abusing 30 boys, some as young as six.

Thai police believed he had abused at least 300. But he was never tried: on May 12, 2006, Rabet died of an overdose at the age of 57.

Two other Jersey-born social workers, who for legal reasons I cannot name, also worked in Islington and later with young offenders.

One arranged more of those mysterious sailing trips to Guernsey, the other sent children to Rabet’s centre. Both were accused of abuse.

In 1995, we reinvestigated Rabet and met DC Cook at the restaurant. He had gone through Hocquart’s papers, investigated other members of the paedophile ring and met their victims. He was horrified at what he discovered.

One man, for example, married a single mother purely so he could abuse her two young sons.

“He told these poor children to keep quiet, that their mother had been lonely so long they would ruin her life if they said anything,” the officer told me.

The vicar who married them knew the groom was a paedophile but did not care: he was one too, and got his victims from a British care home.

DC Cook travelled to Guernsey, which Hocquart regularly visited. There local CID officers drove him round, and he met two brothers whom Hocquart abused, then delivered them to a high-ranking, respected local man to rape.

DC Cook traced another distraught victim in England who provided invaluable information about the man, based in Wales, who copied the ring’s child pornography for distribution.

This man clearly needed his door kicked in by police, as did Hocquart’s other contacts in Britain and the Channel Islands. But no action was taken.

Then word came from on high to drop his inquiries. DC Cook accepted that there might be an innocent explanation – that his local force might not want the financial burden of a national investigation.

But he became deeply troubled when told not to forward his vital intelligence to specialist officers elsewhere.

Britain’s new National Criminal Intelligence Squad (NCIS) had the job of disseminating intelligence on paedophiles across the country. Would I, asked the troubled officer, take his information to the squad’s Paedophile Unit for him?

And so we pretended to share a meal while I secretly scribbled down the names, addresses, dates of birth and believed victims of dozens of suspects.

My diary records that I met NCIS on January 4, 1996, at 10.30am, and I also channelled the intelligence to Scotland Yard. Neither, unfortunately, had the power to make local forces take action, so I was not optimistic.

This was not the first time I had acted as a go-between. In 1994, another police officer was barred from investigating a paedophile ring, which included an Islington social worker of Channel Islands origin.

We alerted Scotland Yard. This man was, I learned, involved with five overlapping paedophile rings – but he has never been convicted.

Peter Cook has now retired and agreed to go on the record. He told me the partner of Hocquart’s video producer was eventually imprisoned for abusing his own sons. “But we could have stopped so much else, so much earlier,” he said.

“The news from Jersey is horrifying. I’ve thought of Rabet all week. The hierarchy does not like these inquiries, they’re expensive and produce embarrassment, so people shove it all under the carpet, they don’t want to know even when children are dying.

“There will be people now crawling out claiming they were always worried. What cowards, what bastards!”

Jersey police confirmed this week it was aware of Nick Rabet and keen to learn more about his friends. Peter Cook told me: “I will help all I can.”

Michael Hames, the former head of Scotland Yard’s Obscene Publications Squad, once told me that he never doubted paedophiles were killing children in care.

But the climate of disbelief was fierce, and he asked sadly: “What police chief will dare risk his career by hiring JCBs [to search for the bodies]?”

Courageous Ulsterman Lenny Harper has. Deposed Jersey health minister Stuart Syvret told me: “My family has lived here since William the Conqueror. But if an indigenous police officer were in charge, this investigation would never have happened. Jersey is an oligarchy, where the elite look after each other.”

When I flew home late last night, in time for Mother’s Day, I felt utter relief.

This tiny island with its high-hedged lanes looked so pretty when the police series Bergerac was filmed here, but to me said just one thing: that there is no escape from here for a terrified child.

If witnesses who want, finally, to help these tragically un-mothered children, now is the time to speak out.

Evening Standard, 25th April 1994

by Eileen Fairweather

Police chiefs have suggested that Scotland Yard’s Obscene Publications Squad – a key weapon in the Met’s fight against child pornographers – may be disbanded. To do so, says Eileen Fairweather, would be a betrayal of our children

THEY use ripe, down-to-earth language, the men at Scotland Yard’s anti-porn squad. They joke outrageously and flirt like crazy. It goes with the job and the gallows humour they develop in self-protection. In a small, fuggy, windowless room filled with video screens, they can spend hour after hour staring at images of children in pain.

 Ninety per cent of the Obscene Publications Squad’s work involves the lucrative ever-growing child pornography trade. Its officers cannot join the outcry about the extraordinary police proposal to disband the squad, which flies in the face of growing public concern about porn. But it is easy to imagine what they would say: what a victory for the perverts.

 Mostly the ‘bastards’ they target are networkers, men who use computers, secret clubs, child-care organisations and coded ads in sex magazines to exchange little girls and boys for kicks and profits. It is a multi-million-pound industry.

 Major child-protection agencies, including Childline and the NSPCC, immediately condemned the proposed disbanding of the squad. Last Wednesday Tory MP Ann Winterton tabled an early-day motion calling for the Home Secretary to overrule Metropolitan Police Commissioner Paul Condon.
Labour’s Clare Short seconded her and they anticipate wide support. MPs were deeply shocked by a squad exhibition at the Commons last year.

 Its head, Superintendent Michael Hames, has broken the mould by successfully using politicians and the Press, courting both to highlight kiddie porn’s brutal reality. Ann Winterton describes him as a ‘superb leader’ (unlike a predecessor jailed for taking bribes), but others consider him far too independent and outspoken.

 HE HAS ruffled feathers by arguing that Britain urgently needs a nationally co-ordinated anti-paedophile unit. I have worked on many child-abuse stories, including this newspaper’s investigation of pimps and por-nographers recruiting through Islington’s children’s homes, and agree: the inadequacy and inefficiency of police operations in this field are a scandal.
The Standard’s reports have resulted in Government-ordered inquiries costing millions, high-level resignations and children’s compensation claims. So what? We don’t yet have a single one of them banged up.

 I am tired of concerned, dedicated officers wearily explaining that they’ve been refused the go-ahead for expensive surveillance; or they haven’t enough time (these investigations are notoriously lengthy, with young, frightened witnesses); or they can’t touch so-and-so because he’s now buggering kids elsewhere, and woe betide the officer who interferes in another force’s manor … The priority different forces and divisions give to child protection varies wildly and unacceptably because it isn’t exciting macho police work like collaring robbers. At local level, child-protection teams – to whom the Obscene Publications Squad’s work is now supposed to devolve – are significantly staffed by women. Some sexists dub them The Tit Squad.

 We need more child-abuse police specialists, resources and co-ordination. Perverts are internationally organised, swapping kids and porn not just across Britain but the Third World, where children are cheaper and more ‘exotic’. In February the Obscene Publications Squad used Thai mailing lists successfully to raid several British men, including a vicar. It is represented on Interpol and assists child-protection training for Third World police through the UN. Supt Hames is proof that too much porn makes you sick: the 49-year-old suffered a heart attack last autumn. The proposed scrapping of his squad is ironic given that recent events have finally forced parents, politicians and psychologists to heed his warnings. Anti-porn campaigners no longer seem puritan killjoys after the role of video nasties in several recent murders and the discovery that violent computer porn is traded in school playgrounds. Broadsheet newspapers have long agonised over whether censorship increases sexual repression and homophobia. The free-speech lobby’s strength is such that possession of child pornography was made an offence only in 1988 – even though it cannot be made without the abuse of a child.

 Recently The Times even worried whether the squad’s prosecution of a gay sado-masochism ring meant that innocent love bites between consenting adults were now illegal. Phooey. Unlike most commentators I have seen some of the stomach-churning porn this group produced. It was far worse than could be shown in court, and included Nazi regalia. Some of the men already have child-abuse convictions. Yet, mind-bogglingly, the civil-liberties group Liberty supports their appeal to the European Court of Human Rights.

NON-VIOLENT adult erotica is not the porn squad’s target. I am amazed that many soggy socialists do not see porn and child abuse as class issues, involving the exploitation by moneyed men of less powerful chil-dren and women. At least one of the Obscene Publications Squad’s current investigations, to which the Standard fed information and in which arrests are imminent, will prove embarrassing for establishment figures.

The millions in December who viewed Lynda La Plante’s thriller Prime Suspect Three, in which a major child-sex-ring investigation is kiboshed to cover up the involvement of high-ranking police officers, might be forgiven for suspecting a conspiracy against the squad. The truth, I believe, is more prosaic. Who in power really cares about abused children? The socialists are naive (Islington’s former leader Margaret Hodge, now Labour candidate for the forthcoming Barking by-election, still privately claims the Standard bribed children in ‘care’ to invent stories). Nor can most Tories expect future votes from the paedophiles’ favourite targets: kids in care and vulnerable single-parent families.

Disconcertingly, the squad often investigates people like us: poshies, professionals or pseudo radicals. Recent squad investigations include a top paediatrician and a ‘gay-rights activist’ child-care consultant.

The doctor’s filing cabinets at a London hospital contained indecent pictures of hundreds of children, some his little patients. Trapping and interviewing paedophiles is a specialist skill because often they are extremely clever, plausible men manipulating positions of trust, particularly in education and social work. One continued to abuse a boy even after he married into a child protection officer’s family. After seven years’ silent suffering the child spoke up. The man is now jailed. How can the squad’s lead in paedophile profiling, training and detection now be scattered piecemeal between local teams already handicapped by low status and few staff? Among the material the Standard gave the squad were names and addresses of a suspected paedophile ring forwarded to us by a frustrated regional officer; frustrated because his seniors couldn’t be bothered to investigate. They didn’t consider it a priority for limited resources. Yet some already have convictions.

The squad is frank: with just 17 men and more than 100 investigations under way, this inquiry may get nowhere. It shouldn’t be this way.

The police are under Government pressure to save money and increase productivity.
How likely is a local police chief to rubber-stamp trips by a suburban team to Amsterdam and Thailand? Or to pay for the high-tech equipment and training which allow the squad access to computer ‘bulletin boards’ on which paedophiles advertise children (blond, age eight, etc) like dishes on a menu? Local teams are reactive – responding to abuse, often within the family, which has already taken place – whereas the squad is proactive. It cross-references information from numerous sources, including paedophiles: they compulsively record abuse in elaborate diaries and correspondence.

‘Ninety-nine per cent’ of squad raids yield paedophile material. Last year it netted more than 54,000 videos and 200 convictions under the Child Protection Act. The average paedophile will hurt 200 children before being convicted. That speaks volumes about children’s fear of speaking up and of a legal system which aggressively trashes them as unreliable witnesses. Only a shocking two per cent of child-abuse allegations result in convictions. The photographic proof of a man’s paedophilia spares children from giving evidence. Several specialist police units currently face abolition, but many appear safe, including the Stolen Car Squad.

Doesn’t a child deserve as much protection as a Ford Sierra? They don’t cry when stolen or flinch in court. Surely our children deserve more than this?

Graham Bennett Fraser

Former top cop Graham Bennett Fraser jailed for sex assaults

  • SEAN FEWSTER, COURT REPORTER
  • The Advertiser
  • October 13, 2009 11:15AM

THE District Court has slammed SA Police’s “astonishingly inadequate” attitude toward a high-ranking officer who admitted sexually assaulting teenage girls but kept his job.

During the 1980s, chief inspector Graham Bennett Fraser lived a double life – protecting the public by day and sexually assaulting two girls by night.

Sentencing Fraser for his crimes today, Judge David Smith said the officer had confessed to his actions during an internal police investigation in 1987 – and was demoted from chief inspector to inspector.

At the time, the statute of limitations prevented charges being filed. That law was changed several years ago, allowing the prosecution to proceed.

Judge Smith said the department had initially failed to properly act in defence of the victims.

“You had an illustrious career in SAPOL,” he told Fraser.

“Despite the law, these charges always constituted serious criminal offending.

“Demotion of one rank would appear to be an astonishingly inadequate penalty.”

Fraser, 68, of Minlaton on Yorke Peninsula, pleaded guilty to seven counts of indecent assault.

Between 1980 and 1983, he abused two teenage girls – who cannot be identified – on a daily basis.

The crimes occurred in his home, his shed and a swimming pool belonging to a friend.

“From any position, this offending was loathsome,” Judge Smith said.

“You were a senior police officer, and these girls had no one to turn to.

“They were entitled to your protection and care, but you exploited them for your own sexual gratification.”

The girls reported Fraser to police in 1986 – resulting in his demotion – and then filed charges again in 2007 following legislative change.

Judge Smith said Fraser – who has mild Parkinson’s Disease – “stole the sexual innocence” of the girls.

He said the former officer’s attempts to justify his behaviour were “lame, disingenous excuses”.

He ordered Fraser be jailed for nine years, with a 6 1/2 year non-parole period.

Fraser will not be eligible for release until 2016, when he is 74 years old.

Police Commissioner Mal Hyde said he was “pleased to see the outcome before the Court today”.

“Taking criminal action when the matter was reported in 1986 was limited by the legislation in place at that time,” he said in a short statement.

“Since that barrier was removed in 2003, SAPOL was able to reinvestigate the matter and put the case before the Courts.”

“The discipline action taken against Graham Fraser following the matter reported in 1986 is considered to be inadequate, and he would certainly have been dismissed as a police officer if the case arose today.”

Policewoman jailed for sex assault

  • From: The Daily Telegraph
  • July 09, 2010 11:25AM

A FORMER policewoman has been jailed for at least two and a half years for sex offences involving a 13-year-old girl.

Gillian Louise Dicks, 41, of the Sydney suburb of Forestville, had pleaded guilty to aggravated indecent assault and three counts of sexual intercourse with a child aged between 10 and 14.

Two of the counts related to digital penetration and the third to oral sex.

In the NSW District Court on Friday, Judge Robert Toner sentenced her to a minimum of two and a half years in jail and a maximum of four and a half years.

He referred to a “moving and disturbing” victim’s impact statement made by the girl.

“I can only hope the residual effects of the offence on you (the victim) will modify with time,” he said.

The girl had believed she was in a “relationship” with Dicks, who told her she would probably go to jail for a long time if their sexual relationship was revealed.

The judge accepted that Dicks was remorseful and had excellent prospects of rehabilitation.

He noted that at the time of the offences Dicks had problems with alcoholism, chronic major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

“As a police officer she had been exposed to traumatic incidents, which to a large extent were left unaddressed,” he said.
But the offences had been a “gross breach of trust”, Judge Toner said, noting Dicks originally came into contact with the girl’s family as a result of her duties as a police officer.

Ex-cop admits sex with girl, 13

  • From: AAP
  • February 16, 2010 3:37PM

A FORMER policewoman said she probably would go to jail for a long time if a 13-year-old girl revealed their sexual relationship.

Gillian Louise Dicks, 41, also told the girl that she was in love with her.

She pleaded guilty to aggravated indecent assault and three counts of sexual intercourse with a child aged between 10 and 14.

Dicks had met the girl’s family in the late 1990s in her capacity as a police officer.

They had no further contact until 2006 when she met the mother through a mutual friend.

In October 2007, after Dicks had consumed alcohol, she had pulled the girl onto her lap and rubbed her leg.

On another occasion, Dicks touched the girl’s breast, after which the teenager asked if they were having a relationship. Dicks told her they were.

“At this stage, the complainant believed she was in a girlfriend/girlfriend relationship with the accused,” Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court was told.

The girl also asked Dicks what would happen if her mother found out about the relationship.

“The accused told her that she would probably go to jail for a long time and they wouldn’t see each other again.”

After the girl told her mother, the three met in April 2008 when the mother accused her of having sex with her daughter.

“The accused denied this saying ‘don’t be ridiculous, she is only 13 years old’,” the court was told.

The case was adjourned to February 26 when a sentencing date will be set.

Former policewoman ‘had sex with teen’

Article from: The Daily Telegraph

By Rhett Watson

July 17, 2009 12:00am

A FORMER policewoman has been accused of having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old girl.

Gillian Louise Dicks is alleged to have befriended the girl in 2007 and then engaged in sexual acts with her over a six-month period.

The 40-year-old allegedly had sex with the child three times between September 2007 and February 2008.

The Daily Telegraph understands the alleged offences occurred not long after Dicks had left the force following an extended period of sick leave.

Police refused to confirm the date Dicks left the force or any other details of the case.

A statement from Assistant Commissioner Denis Clifford said Dicks was not an officer when the alleged offences occurred. She had previously been a long-serving officer at Manly.

A statement tendered to Downing Centre Local Court said police from a Chatswood-based juvenile investigative response team arrested Dicks at 7am on June 26.

Police have alleged that between October 7, 2007 and January 12, 2008 Dicks engaged in sex with the girl at a North Ryde address. She then allegedly had sex with her at a Manly address on January 12, 2008.

On January 13 Dicks allegedly took the girl to the Seaview Motel in Manly where sex allegedly occurred.

Dicks was initially remanded to Silverwater jail. She has since been given bail on condition she not approach the young victim or any witnesses.

She will reappear in court on August 11.

Shane Bevan Daines

Child protection group welcomes jail sentence

Posted Wed Apr 9, 2003 10:30am AEST

A child protection organisation has welcomed a lengthy prison sentence handed out to a former southern Queensland police officer convicted of numerous child sex offences.

Shane Bevan Daines, 45, has been jailed for 13 years with no recommendation for parole after pleading guilty to more than 30 charges.

The eight to 15-year-old victims were abused by Daines in several small western Queensland towns.

Abused Child Trust spokeswoman Jane Anderson says it is extremely sad that a police officer betrayed his profession in such a manner.

“Police as a whole must be feeling very sad because I’ve heard one mother, one mother who was involved in this case, that she could never teach her grandchildren now to look up to police and trust police,” she said.

“It’s a pretty awful thing isn’t it when that happens in a society.”

Alan Crane

Child porn: Cop guilty

Mex Cooper

20Feb07

A GEELONG police officer yesterday pleaded guilty to possessing more than 500 images of child pornography.

Up to 70,000 pornographic images stored on 500 CDs and two computers were seized from Alan Crane’s former East Geelong home during a police raid on March 1 last year.

The search was conducted by the Victorian Police’s Ethical Standards Department and the Office of Police Integrity after a tip-off from United State’s law enforcement agencies to the Australian Federal Police.

The Geelong Magistrates’ Court heard that 10,000 of the images were suspected to have contained child pornography, but after a forensic examination an expert was only able to confidently identify 44 girls, featured in 542 images, as being under 18 years old.

Daryl Brown, from the Office of Public Prosecutions, said it was likely that many of the other images also showed minors but that they could not be confidently identified as underage.

The court heard that the child pornography showed girls posing naked, some in sexually provocative positions but not engaged in sexual acts.

Nick Papas, for Crane, said the child pornography, some of which was paid for with a credit card, made up less than 1 per cent of his client’s total pornography collection.

Mr Papas said it could be difficult to tell if a person was under 18 from a picture and that his client was not interested in having sex with underage girls.

“His interest in the young form is one based on viewing beauty and not sexual gratification,” he said.

At the time of his arrest Crane, a police officer of 18 years, had been working at the Geelong Traffic Management Unit for about 10 months after spending most of his career in Sale, during which time he received a medal for ethics and good service.

He has since moved from Geelong after receiving death threats.

Magistrate Max Beck convicted Crane on one charge of possessing child pornography.

“If people did not seek to possess child pornography, children would not be abused to create it,” Mr Beck said.

Crane, 41, was fined $6000, sentenced to three months’ jail suspended for 12 months and placed on the sex offenders register for eight years.

Outside the court Crane said he was “totally blown away” by the sentence.

“I’m disappointed by the magistrate’s decision. I think it was made fully apparent in the court that they were not images of very young children or children being abused. I think that kind of behaviour is abhorrent,” he said.

“I regret digressing from what the legislators have decided is child pornography. I believe this was a technical child pornography case and I will be appealing the decision.”

Crane was suspended on full pay after being charged. After  the court’s decision his pay was withdrawn.

A police spokesman said  police would wait for the appeal outcome before deciding whether to take any further internal disciplinary action.

Kevin Chivers

Former cop jailed for raping girl

  • From: AAP
  • November 06, 2009 6:40PM

A FORMER NSW policeman whose sexual assault of a girl began when she was 12 and progressed to rape has been sentenced to at least 10 years in jail.

Kevin Chivers, 60, served about 26 years as a police officer before he was arrested while at work in 2006 for the attacks, which began in 1997 and went on until 2003.

Chivers is already serving a minimum of three years and four months for the sexual assault of another girl in the early 1980s.

In the Downing Centre District Court today, Chivers hung his head as he was sentenced to a non-parole period of at least 10 years, with a maximum sentence of 15 years, for 10 charges of rape, attempted rape and indecent assault on the young girl.

The woman, now 23, sobbed as details of the attacks on her were read to the court by Judge Robyn Tupman, who described them as a “gross violation of her bodily integrity”.

When she was just 12 years old, Chivers had thrown her down on a bed and performed oral sex on her and then forced her to watch while he masturbated, the judge said.

After he finished, Chivers allegedly told her, “Sorry mate, I just had to do that”.

Later, when she was older, he raped her and on one occasion beat her.

When she asked him, “Why me?” he allegedly responded, “Come on mate, we’re friends, we have a special bond. It’ll stop when you’re 18. It happens all the time – it’s very common.”

Eventually, the girl became resigned to her fate and did not fight his advances, Judge Tupman said.

“She had become resigned to ongoing sexual contact with the offender … she did not resist any longer because she had come to accept that this was what was expected of her,” the judge said.

“She thought she had no choice.

“She believed that she loved the offender and … she also believed that the offender also loved her and this was just part of what she had to endure in her life.”

Judge Tupman described Chivers’ actions as a “gross violation of trust”.

“Children are entitled to enjoy their childhood and to be children, not be used by adults in this way,” she said.

“It’s a gross violation of the trust children ought to feel they can place in all adults.”

Outside court the woman said Chivers could “burn in hell”, but she was very happy with the result.
“All smiles from me – time to move on. (I’m) very happy,” she told reporters.

In handing down the sentence, Judge Tupman said he accepted that Chivers had been suffering from depression and anxiety relating to his job as a police officer, but said this in no way explained his behaviour.

She acknowledged he was effectively in solitary confinement for most of his time in prison because he had to be kept in protective custody with 12 high profile offenders.

He refused to associate with them because he was afraid of them, and only conversed with one other former police officer inmate, she said.

“I accept that he has a fear, genuinely based, that he may be murdered in the jail system, if not seriously harmed,” she said.

Chivers will be eligible for parole on October 15, 2019.

Kevin Chivers, 60, served about 26 years as a police officer before he was arrested while at work in 2006 for the attacks, which began in 1997 and went on until 2003.

Chivers is already serving a minimum of three years and four months for the sexual assault of another girl in the early 1980s.

In the Downing Centre District Court today, Chivers hung his head as he was sentenced to a non-parole period of at least 10 years, with a maximum sentence of 15 years, for 10 charges of rape, attempted rape and indecent assault on the young girl.

The woman, now 23, sobbed as details of the attacks on her were read to the court by Judge Robyn Tupman, who described them as a “gross violation of her bodily integrity”.

When she was just 12 years old, Chivers had thrown her down on a bed and performed oral sex on her and then forced her to watch while he masturbated, the judge said.

After he finished, Chivers allegedly told her, “Sorry mate, I just had to do that”.

Later, when she was older, he raped her and on one occasion beat her.

When she asked him, “Why me?” he allegedly responded, “Come on mate, we’re friends, we have a special bond. It’ll stop when you’re 18. It happens all the time – it’s very common.”

Eventually, the girl became resigned to her fate and did not fight his advances, Judge Tupman said.

“She had become resigned to ongoing sexual contact with the offender … she did not resist any longer because she had come to accept that this was what was expected of her,” the judge said.

“She thought she had no choice.

“She believed that she loved the offender and … she also believed that the offender also loved her and this was just part of what she had to endure in her life.”

Judge Tupman described Chivers’ actions as a “gross violation of trust”.

“Children are entitled to enjoy their childhood and to be children, not be used by adults in this way,” she said.

“It’s a gross violation of the trust children ought to feel they can place in all adults.”

Outside court the woman said Chivers could “burn in hell”, but she was very happy with the result.
“All smiles from me – time to move on. (I’m) very happy,” she told reporters.

In handing down the sentence, Judge Tupman said he accepted that Chivers had been suffering from depression and anxiety relating to his job as a police officer, but said this in no way explained his behaviour.

She acknowledged he was effectively in solitary confinement for most of his time in prison because he had to be kept in protective custody with 12 high profile offenders.

He refused to associate with them because he was afraid of them, and only conversed with one other former police officer inmate, she said.

“I accept that he has a fear, genuinely based, that he may be murdered in the jail system, if not seriously harmed,” she said.

Chivers will be eligible for parole on October 15, 2019.

Angry policeman pays for his years of molesting children

November 2, 2009

A policeman who preyed on young girls is now in protective custody as a convicted pedophile, writes Geesche Jacobsen.

KEVIN CHIVERS had been a police officer for more than two decades. Now his nearest neighbours are Michael Guider, killer of the schoolgirl Samantha Knight; Robert Farmer, the man who attacked Lauren Huxley; Michael Anthony Wallace, who murdered Zoe Zou; and a group of Pakistani gang rapists known as the K Brothers.

Chivers, 59, is in such company in strict protection in Goulburn prison because the former policeman is a convicted pedophile.

He has already been sentenced to three years in prison for sexually assaulting a girl in the 1980s. But on Friday he will be sentenced for another 10 counts of rape, attempted rape and indecent assault against a girl from 1997 to 2003.

”If he had been charged immediately after the first offences, not only would the others not have happened, but he would not have had years working as a police officer,” Judge Robyn Tupman said during a District Court sentencing hearing on Friday.

Claims that Chivers assaulted two other girls, including one in the mid-1970s, were not found proved, in separate trials, by juries which did not hear about the extent of the allegations against him.

The Herald can now reveal for the first time all these details and Chivers’s name and photograph. The woman he has been acquitted of assaulting in the 1970s when the teenager was babysitting his children, had tried to tell her grandmother about the attacks, but says she was told: ”Sweetheart, there are some things you have got to take to your grave.”

”I was frightened. In those days he was a policeman, you didn’t report things like that … You were classified as a slut,” she told the court last year.

The woman then told someone about the alleged attacks about 10 years ago when she was undergoing hypnosis to lose weight, but denied her memories were false.

Another woman, who was assaulted by Chivers in the mid-1980s when she was aged 10 or 11, said she felt ”waves of terror” and believed he would kill her. ”He was a policeman. He was the law … How could a child say anything against a police officer?”

As a joke, he allegedly locked her up in the police cells with another girl and her teddy bear, which was tendered in court. He allegedly told them: ”This is what happens to naughty people.”

The other girl also came forward in 2006 alleging he had assaulted her but three times before she had denied she too had been abused and the jury acquitted him of those charges.

His behaviour was exposed only three years ago when his last victim, then in her early 20s, contacted police. She had been repeatedly sexually assaulted by Chivers over six years and the Crown alleged he was ”an opportunist [who] molested her whenever circumstances arose”.

He admitted he once assaulted her when he was angry, but has denied all allegations of sexual abuse against any girls.

Even his lawyer argued that he was an ”extremely difficult” man who was ”often cranky” and had been diagnosed with depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

The woman, in evidence, spoke of his ”Gollum side”, after the character in The Lord of the Rings.

During the argument, which he admitted, he threw a plate of ice-cream at her before grabbing her by the throat and pushing her against a door. The next day he visited her and showed her a piece of paper headed ”hitlist”, with her name at the top, and those of her friends and family below. The woman had been emotionally vulnerable when Chivers began grooming her for abuse, the prosecutor had told the court.

In letters tendered in court, Chivers addressed her as ”Jane” and signed them as ”Boy” after the characters from the Tarzan books.

”I know it’s my fault and you don’t have to keep saying it. I realise it every day,” he wrote to her after the abuse ended.

”Jane, I know I’ve had some dumb ideas in the past, but they are in the past.”

The names of his victims and the other women who accused him of assault cannot be published for legal reasons. Judge Tupman also stressed there was no suggestion Chivers had ever offended against any of the children attending his wife’s childcare centre.

”It is an entirely peripheral matter,” she said and there was no need for concern or worry by members of the public.

His barrister, Michael Pickin, told the court Chivers should get a sentence of perhaps five to seven years. He urged the court to take into account his client’s post-traumatic stress, caused by his work in the police force, and the conditions in jail.

Chivers is being held in protective custody and has been threatened in prison. Mr Pickin said he was being housed in a unit with people regarded as pariahs by other inmates.

Policeman suspended after child porn sentence

By Carolyn Herbert

Posted Thu May 17, 2012 5:26pm AEST

A Northern Territory Police officer has been suspended from duty after being found guilty of possessing child abuse material.

In the Darwin Magistrates Court, 46-year-old Craig Chenhal was handed a two-month sentence, suspended after he serves a week in jail, for possessing 11 images of child abuse material.

Magistrate John Lowndes told the court there was “an expectation that police officers protect the community from the commission of offences, not commission them themselves’”.

Mr Lowndes also told the court that, in sentencing, he would have to consider the fact that Chenhal could lose his job.

Chenhal’s lawyers have lodged an appeal against the sentence and he was released on bail.

Later, he was suspended without from his duties as a police officer.

Protection of paedophile networks

Paedophile networks with high ranking people do exist. The networks are active in several countries and practice similar cruelties. In the article below, we will consecutively address Belgium, Australia and the United States. But paedophiles in high places are also active in France, Great-Britain or Portugal. A common trait is the complicity of corrupt intelligence agencies to help the guilty maintain their cover.

Craig J. Spence and Michel Nihoul: 1980s network figures connected with intelligence agencies

Belgium

In August 1996, investigative judge Jean Marc Connerotte heroically succeeds in freeing two kidnapped children from Marc Dutroux’ cellar. Connerotte’s following investigation focused on paedophile networks. He insists on examining DNA from the bodies of the deceased children. His superiors, however, won’t let him: based on a futility, Connerotte is released from the investigation and replaced by a debutant judge. The attention must not be on the paedophile network around Michel Nihoul, but on Marc Dutroux.

This become painfully clear when several crucial witnesses to the prosecution pass away in strange circumstances:

*Francois Reyskens: in July 1995, he was on his way to the police to present information on the disappearance of Dutroux’ victims Julie and Mélissa. Shortly before reaching the police station, he was run over by a train.

*Bruno Tagliaferro: this ironmonger from Charleroi and acquaintance of Dutroux came up with information on the car with which Julie and Mélissa were kidnapped. He also claimed to possess a list mentioning names connected to Dutroux. On the 5th of november 1995, he was found dead, apparently after suffering a stroke.
His wife Fabienne Jaupart found that hard to believe and demanded a secundary autopsy. Blood samples would have indicated her husband to have died of poisoning. Shortly thereafter, she was found dead as well, left halfburnt on a smoldering mattress, on which traces of inflammable liquid were found [1].
The essential lead to Dutroux’ car swindle is removed effectively by prosecutor Anne Thilly, who apparently goes at arm’s length to hinder the investigation.

*Simon Poncelet, the police inspector investigating that same lead, is found shot on January 22nd 1996. His father emphasizes the connection between this murder and the Dutroux-trial [2].

*Brigitte Jennart, Michel Nihoul and his wife _Anne Bouty_’s dentist, reportedly killed herself on the 5th of April 1998. Jennart is arguably the most important of the deceased witnesses. She knew about the Nihouls managing a traffic with African asylum seekers in which paedophilia played a key part [3].

*In the course of 1996, during the search for the two girls, Anne Konjevoda presents herself telephonically as a witness. The women says she knows more on the connection between the kidnappings and the car swindle in Charleroi. On April 7th 1998, her body is fished out of canal of Liège. An autopsy, however, indicates she died of strangling [4].

*On the 25th of August 1995, Guy Goebels, police inspector into the disappearance of Julie and Mélissa, officially used his service weapon to commit suicide. The parents of the girls know the inspector well and esteem murder to be a more probable cause of death [5].

*Jean Marc Houdmont, another acquaintance of Marc Dutroux, dies on February 25th 1997 in a car accident, while en route to Namur to testify against Dutroux [6].

Remarkably, most of the above witnesses communicated their information to the police or the prosecutors before loosing their life. The intentionally inadequate way in which the investigation into these deaths was done, and the nearly complete media silence about these cases, indicates how a cover up on the paedophile networks was in place from day one.

At his appearance in the Dutroux-trial, a broken Jean-Marc Connerotte summarized it well: how never before so much energy was wasted on the sabotage of an investigation. Connerotte himself was notified by the police on how killing contracts existed to take out certain magistrates as a last resort to hide the truth. He himself had to be transported in a bulletproof car. Nihoul, on the other hand, enjoyed a certain invulnerability [7].

The cover up of the networks is confirmed by the testimony of one of their well-known victims. During the investigation of Dutroux, pedophilia victim Regina Louf recognized Michel Nihoul as one of the child molesters she was confronted with during her childhood [8].
According to Louf, Michel Nihoul played a central part in organizing the so-called ‘Pink Ballets’: meetings during the ‘80s in which minors and children were cruelly abused by men. She testifies how in 1984 Michel Nihoul, together with his wife Anne Bouty, ritually murdered another network victim, Christine Van Hees. She describes the murder into the same excruciating details the investigators had uncovered [9].
Regina also knew the victims Carine Dellaert and Catherine De Cuyper, as well as several other murdered girls.

In August of 1996, Marie-France Botte, an internationally reknowned Walloon child rights activist and avid accuser of paedophile networks, addresses the protection of high-ranking paedophiles in the Belgian press. From then on, her association is constantly being undermined and is forced to close shop eventually. Botte herself reportedly tried to kill herself late 1998 by swallowing an inflammable liquid [10].
Gina Pardaens, a Flemish child rights activist was harassed repeatedly by phone and on the road. She investigated the disappearance of children in a paedophile ring and uncovered information related to Nihoul’s network. In November 1998, she was killed in a car crash [11].

How is it these networks can remain anonymous and free of prosecution? During her childhood abuse, Regina Louf recognized well-known politicians; she mentions high-level judges, police officers and businessmen. Through the interrogations of Regina (called X1 by investigators) and other pedophilia victims X2 and X3, names surface like the ones of Paul Van den Boeynants, Maurice Lippens, Melchior Wathelet, Wilfried Martens, members of the royal family and several other dignitaries. The original (and rather shocking) police examinations with Regina as witness X1 (pp. 8 to 1083), as well as those of X2 (pp.1083 to 1100) and X3 (pp.1100 to 1105), with names and perversities of the accused included, have leaked out on the internet (downloadable through this source).

Australia

Dr. Reina Michelson is the director of the Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Program (CSAPP) in Victoria, southern-Australia and a rewarded advocate for children’s rights across the world. Her story begins in 1995, when she rings the alarm bell about paedophile networks being run from a boarding school in Victoria and a child day-care centre in Melbourne.
Dr. Michelson frequently meets similar victims who testify on the sadistic practices on children from 2 to 14 years old, up to the shooting of paedophile porn movies and even the assassination of children. None of these cases will ever be solved. This injustice goes back to the ‘80s and continues to this day [12], [13].

Media moguls, business men and several politicians are named by paedophilia victims as participants. Nobody is charged or prosecuted. In Australia, the protection of the paedophile networks is extensive.

*The accusations against a day care centre of Mornington, with the abuse against at least 19 young children, is totally neglected by the Victoria police. Neither the parents, nor the victims are heard even once by the police [14].

*In 2002, the complaint against a media mogul from Melbourne, who repeatedly raped a 3 year old boy – an abuse that was confirmed by the Royal Children’s Hospital’s Gatehouse Centre – is dropped merely two days later [15].

*In March 2004, a paedophile victim’s charge against a known TV-personality is dismissed later in the year by the Victoria police [16].

*A paedophile teacher in Melbourne still teaches in high school. He was never interrogated let alone punished [17].

The cover up of the Australian paedophile network is directly maintained by complicity of the security services. Several victims on some occasions even testity on sexual abuse by police officers themselves. In a letter dated April 2004 to the CSAPP, a woman testifies how high-ranking police officers in Victoria took advantage of the local child prostitution ring. This woman was later intimidated by police patrols and feared she would be ‘suicided’. Dr. Michelson herself isn’t spared either: she was burglarized, her family was threatened and she herself is the subject of harassment on a continuing basis [18][19][20].

United States

In 1999, Paul Bonacci accuses a series of dignitaries in Nebraska for the abuse he had to endure during the ‘80s as a paedophilia victim. He charges leading police officers, businessmen, media, church and the local community school for orphans. The afro-American Republican politician Larry King, manager for the Community Federal Credit Union in Franklin, is condemned to pay one million dollar in damages.

This trial, just as in Belgium and Australia, indicates how local representatives participate in the child abuse. A recurring theme is the eploitation of schools, daycare centres and orphanages to recruit children, as well as the conditioning of children from a tender age to make them accept the abuse.

The trial in Nebraska opens more ancient wounds. An investigation by Franklin’s board of inquiry shows that the child abuse dates from 1984 and probably even before. Because of her shocking testimony, Lisa, a girl from Franklin forced into a paedophile prostitution ring from the age of 14, undergoes a lie detector test. She recalls how the forementioned Larry King transported her by plane, together with minor boys, to an orgy in Chicago, and how she recognized then presidential hopeful and C.I.A.-director George H.W. Bush among the attendants. This is related in the infamous unofficial biography about the ex-president. The lie detector test indicated Lisa was speaking the truth [21].

Earlier investigative articles from the New York Times from 15 and 22 december 1988 reveal that minors from Franklin to Washington were forced to perform sexually tainted services to prominent paedophiles for years [22].
On the 29th of June 1989 an article appears in the Washington Times titled Homosexual prostitution inquiry ensnares VIPs with Reagan, Bush [23].
In the article, one can read how young prostitutes were taken to the White House and abused at perverse parties with the highest ranking politicical, military and business people. Craig J. Spence, a homosexual Republican lobbyist, had smuggled minors into the White House at least on one occasion.

The paedophilia cases in the U.S. reveal high-level complicity of the intelligence agency C.I.A. in protecting, maintaining and even managing the paedophile networks. Craig J. Spence is a pivotal figure in Washington’s sex scandals. He is the American version of Michel Nihoul. He was the organizer of elitist sex parties in his own mansion where numerous high-ranking participants were discretely being filmed and the videotapes were being kept. This appears in a Washington Times follow up article dated June 30th 1989 [24]. Craig Spence is reported to have said to a friend: I need boys and girls for people in government and high-level businessmen for my parties, for individuals, for whatever comes up [25].

According to Spence, the tapes containing compromising material served as blackmail tools for the C.I.A. His operation was part of a long-term C.I.A. strategy in which call boys and minors were being recruited systematically to feature with domestic and foreign guests in filmed sex parties. The lobbyist slash pimp added he feared for his life by revealing this much on the purpose of the network, and suspected he would one day be found dead by suicide. He was proven right: he was found dead on November 10th 1989 in his room at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Boston [26].

Conclusion

Testimonies from paedophile victims on both sides of the ocean reveal how the organized sexual perversions depass all moral boundaries – participants abandon themselves to rape, torture and even murdering of young people. Events are filmed in so-called snuff movies. Satanic rituals come into play at some occasions.

The shocking aspect is not only that this kind of sickness actually happens. It also hides a well-oiled organization. The sexual blackmail by the C.I.A., and the successfulness of the cover up of the existing international networks, suggests which agency forms the backbone of this organization. Above mentioned examples of paedophile ring protection in Belgium, Australia and the United States show how even paedophilia victims and child rights activists are systematically being harassed and professionally being intimidated. If blackmail or threats don’t prove to be efficient, heavier means are put into place.

Corrupted security and intelligence agencies protect paedophile networks in obediance to powerful officials who apparently feel they are above the law, and who regard the people as fodder for their sexual needs.

"Paedophiles can boldly and courageously affirm what they choose ... I am also a theologian and as a theologian, I believe it is God's will that there be closeness and intimacy, unity of flesh, between people ... paedophiles can make the assertion that the pursuit of intimacy and love is what they choose. With boldness, they can say, 'I believe this is in fact part of God's will.'"

Ralph Underwager, 'expert' witness for the defense in scores of child abuse cases and former vocal member of the False Memory Syndrome Foundation, in an interview in Paidika (a pro-pedophilia publication), conducted in June 1991

To the vast majority of Americans, the name Marc Dutroux doesn't mean much. Drop that name in Belgium though and you're likely to elicit some very visceral reactions. Dutroux - convicted along with his wife in 1989 for the rape and violent abuse of five young girls, the youngest of whom was just eleven - now stands accused of being a key player in an international child prostitution and pornography ring whose practices included kidnapping, rape, sadistic torture, and murder.

Dutroux was sentenced in 1989 to thirteen years for his crimes, but was freed after having served just three. This was in spite of the fact that, as prison governor Yvan Stuaert would later tell a parliamentary commission: “A medical report described him as a perverse psychopath, an explosive mix. He was an evident danger to society.”

The man who turned Dutroux loose on society, Justice Minister Melchior Wathelet, soon after received a prestigious appointment to serve as a judge at the European Court of Justice at the Hague. Shortly after Dutroux’s release, young girls began to disappear in the vicinity of some of his homes. Though technically unemployed and drawing welfare from the state, he nevertheless owned at least six houses and lived quite lavishly.

His rather lucrative income appears to have been derived from trading in child sex-slaves, child prostitution, and child pornography. Many of his houses appeared to stand vacant, though at least some of them were in fact used as torture and imprisonment centers where kidnapped girls were taken and held in underground dungeons.

Some of Dutroux’s homes were used in this way for several years following his early release, with a growing body of evidence to indicate that fact to the police. True to form though, authorities failed to act on the information, or acted on it in a way that showed either complete incompetence (according to most press reports), or police complicity in the operation (according to any sort of logic).

Police seem to have routinely ignored tips that later proved to be accurate, including a report from Dutroux's own mother that her son was holding girls prisoner in one of his houses. In addition, key facts were withheld from investigators working on the disappearances and lines of communication were unaccountably broken, inexcusably hindering the investigation.

Police did search one of Dutroux's homes on no less than three separate occasions over the course of the investigation. On at least two of those occasions, two of the missing girls were being held in heinous conditions imprisoned in a custom-built dungeon in the basement. Nevertheless, the police searches came up empty, despite the fact that the investigating officers reported “hearing children’s voices on one occasion,” according to the Guardian.

It was not until August 13, 1996, four years after the disappearances began, that authorities arrested Dutroux, along with his wife (an elementary school teacher), a lodger, a policeman, and a man the Guardian described as “an associate with political connections” – elsewhere identified as Michel Lelievre.

Two days later, police again searched Dutroux's home and discovered the soundproof dungeon/torture center. As CNN reported, three years earlier “police ignored tips from an informant who said Dutroux was building secret cellars to hold girls before selling them abroad.” And in 1995, the same informant had told police that Dutroux had offered an unidentified third man “the equivalent of $3,000 to $5,000 to kidnap girls.”

Incredibly, it was later reported by the Guardian that police actually had in their possession a videotape of the dungeon being constructed: “Belgian police could have saved the lives of two children allegedly murdered by the paedophile Marc Dutroux if they had watched a video seized from his home which showed him building their hidden cell.” The tape had been seized in one of the earlier searches.

At the time of the final search, two fourteen-year-old girls were found imprisoned in the dungeon, chained and starving. They described to police being used as child prostitutes and in the production of child pornography videos. More than 300 such videos were taken into custody by the police.

On August 17, the story got grimmer as police dug up the bodies of two eight-year-old girls at another of Dutroux's homes. It would later be learned that the girls had been kept in one of Dutroux’s dungeons for nine months after their abductions, during which time they were repeatedly tortured and sexually assaulted, all captured on videotape. The girls were then left to slowly starve to death. Alongside of their decimated corpses was the body of Bernard Weinstein, a former accomplice of Dutroux who had occupied one of the houses for several years. Weinstein had been buried alive.

A few weeks later, two more girls were found buried under concrete at yet another of the Dutroux properties. By that time, ten people were reportedly in custody in connection to the case. Elsewhere in Belgium, the News Telegraph reported that: “The corpses of two women and parts of a third body have been discovered in a freezer at a Lebanese restaurant in Brussels.”

As the body count mounted, the outrage of the Belgian people grew. They demanded to know why this man, dubbed the 'Belgian Beast,' had been released after having served such an absurdly short sentence. And to know why, as evidence had continued to mount and girls had continued to disappear, the police had chosen to do nothing. How many girls, they demanded to know, had been killed as a result of this inaction?

Adding further fuel to the fire, as a Los Angeles Times report revealed, was that: “a highly regarded children’s activist, Marie-France Botte, claims that the Justice Ministry is sitting on a politically sensitive list of customers of pedophile videotapes.”

The same report noted that: “The affair has become further clouded by the discovery of a motorcycle that reportedly matches the description of one used in the 1991 assassination of prominent Belgian businessman and politician Andre Cools. Michel Bourlet, the head prosecutor on the pedophile case, meanwhile, has publicly declared that the investigation can be thoroughly pursued only without political interference. Several years ago, Bourlet was removed from the highly charged Cools case, which remains unsolved.”

A report in Time magazine alluded to murky links between the Dutroux operation and organized crime figures. Much later, Marc Verwilghen - the chief investigating magistrate on the case - would bluntly state: “For me, the Dutroux affair is a question of organised crime.” Also mentioned in the Time article was the use of secret “underground tunnels,” not unlike those described by children a decade earlier at the infamous McMartin Preschool.

Outrage continued to grow as more arrests were made and evidence of high-level government and police complicity continued to emerge. One of Dutroux's accomplices, businessman Jean-Michel Nihoul, confessed to organizing an ‘orgy’ at a Belgian chateau that had been attended by government officials, a former European Commissioner, and a number of law enforcement officers. A Belgian senator would note, quite accurately, that such parties were part of a system “which operates to this day and is used to blackmail the highly placed people who take part.”

In September, twenty-three suspects - at least nine of whom were police officers - were detained and questioned about their possible complicity in the crimes and/or their negligence in investigating the case. As the Los Angeles Times noted in a very brief, two-sentence report, the detainments “were the latest indication that police in the southern city of Charleroi may have helped cover up the alleged crimes of Marc Dutroux.”

The arrests followed raids on the police officers’ homes and on the headquarters of the Charleroi police force and were based on information supplied by police inspector Georges Zicot, who had already been charged as an accomplice. Three magistrates had also reportedly been interrogated by police investigators.

Just days before the arrests, police had also arrested five suspects in the Cools assassination, including a former regional government minister named Alain VanderBiest. Strangely enough, the News Telegraph reported that: “Police investigating the Cools murder in 1991 … have been given helpful leads by some of those arrested in the Dutroux case.” The Telegraph also noted that Cools “had promised ‘shocking revelations’ before his death.”

On October 14 came the straw that broke the camel's back: Jean-Marc Connerotte, who had been serving as the investigating judge on the case, was dismissed by the Belgian Supreme Court. Connerotte was viewed by the people as something of a rarity: a public official/law enforcement officer who actually appeared to be pursuing a prosecution, rather than a cover-up. The News Telegraph described him as: “the only figure in the judiciary who enjoys the nation’s confidence.”

As the New York Times reported, Connerotte “became a national hero in August after saving two children from a secret dungeon kept by a convicted child rapist and ordering the inquiry that led to the discovery of the bodies of four girls kidnapped by a child pornography network.” He had also, in 1994, arrested three men as suspects in the Cools assassination – just before the case was transferred to the jurisdiction of another magistrate.

His removal from the Dutroux case fanned the smoldering flames of public outrage; the Times report noted that: “Hundreds of thousands of people had petitioned the high court to retain the judge.” Adding yet more fuel to the fire, prosecutor Michel Bourlet was claiming that evidence suggested that a pedophile ring composed of the wealthy and powerful had been protected for twenty-five years.

With the families of Dutroux's victims calling for a general strike, men and women all across the country walked away from their jobs in protest as railway workers and bus drivers shut down public transportation, bringing some cities to a virtual standstill. The Telegraph reported that: “In Liege, firemen turned their hoses on the city’s court building” to symbolize the massive clean-up that was in order.

On October 20, 350,000 citizens of the tiny nation took to the streets of Brussels dressed all in white, demanding the reform of a system so corrupt that it would protect the abusers, rapists, torturers, and killers of children. The political fallout from the case would ultimately bring about the resignation of Belgium's State Police Chief, Interior Minister, and Justice Minister – likely sacrificial lambs tossed to the outraged masses to avoid what could easily have exploded into a full-scale insurrection by the people, particularly after police ‘incompetence’ allowed Dutroux to escape and remain at large for a brief time in April of 1998.

There were in fact calls from the people for the entire coalition government to step down. Months later, an opinion survey by Brussels’ Le Soir newspaper found that only one-in-five Belgians still had confidence in the federal government and the nation’s justice system. As the Los Angeles Times reported in January of 1998, “the conviction remains stubbornly widespread that members of the upper crust - government ministers, the Roman Catholic Church, the court of King Albert II - belonged to child sex rings, or protected them.”

The lingering distrust of the people was not alleviated by the fact that a parliamentary inquiry had, in April of 1997, identified thirty officials who had, as the Times tactfully put it, “failed to uncover Dutroux’s misdeeds.” Nearly a year later, none of them had yet suffered any repercussions. Additionally, at least ten missing children suspected of having fallen prey to Dutroux’s operation have never been found.

The commission’s report was, in many people’s eyes, a shameless cover-up. As the News Telegraph summarized, the report “said competition between rival forces had prevented vital information from being exchanged and obvious evidence from being followed up” – rather than acknowledge the obvious, which was that rampant police corruption and complicity were to blame.

Just a few months before the commission issued its report, the Telegraph was reporting that: “Grim rumors … have been circulating that a second paedophile network at least as appalling may have been operating in parallel to that said to involve Dutroux.” The bodies of seven children were believed to have been hidden by the ring, which was thought could be linked to Dutroux through Michel Nihoul.

Two months after that, a man named Patrick Derochette and three of his family members were arrested following the discovery of the body of a nine-year-old girl. Rumors quickly began circulating linking this crime to Dutroux as well. Like Dutroux, Derochette had previously been convicted on multiple counts of child rape. He had been committed to a psychiatric institution from which he was released after just six weeks.

Authorities quickly denied that there was any connection between the two cases. In January of 1998, however, the Telegraph reported that: “new evidence from a lawyer involved in the investigations blows a hole in previous police claims that there was no link between the cases involving the alleged child murderers Marc Dutroux and Patrick Derochette.” Once again, the connection was said to be through Nihoul.

In April of 1999, the Guardian reported that: “the highly respected chairman of a parliamentary inquiry into the case claims that his commission’s findings were muzzled by political and judicial leaders to prevent details emerging of complicity in the crimes … Mr. Verwilghen claims that senior political and legal figures refused to cooperate with the inquiry. He says magistrates and police were officially told to refuse to answer certain questions, in what he describes as ‘a characteristic smothering operation.’”

As of August of 2001, fully five years after Dutroux was taken into custody, his trial had yet to begin. Parents of victims continued to shout of a cover-up, and the Telegraph was reporting that: “It was recently learnt that scientific tests on 6,000 hairs found in the [underground dungeon] began only this year.” These tests could, of course, reveal how many victims passed through Dutroux’s chamber of horrors.

If the Marc Dutroux case were some kind of aberration, it would still be a disturbing story for the level of unspeakable corruption and depravity of the Belgian political and law enforcement establishment of which it speaks. Far more disturbing is the fact that it doesn't appear to be an isolated case at all.

As 1999 drew to a close, the nation of Latvia was rocked by a child prostitution/child pornography scandal that reached to the very top of the political power structure. The case first broke in August, when police uncovered a massive operation involving as many as 2,000 severely abused children. When media reports began linking top Latvian officials to the case, a special parliamentary commission was formed to investigate.

In February 2000, the chairman of the commission delivered a report to Parliament linking the country's Prime Minister, Justice Minister, director of the State Revenue Service, and a number of army and law enforcement officers to the case. Efforts were immediately begun to discredit the commission chairman, including allegations that he is tied to the former KGB – a classic case of red-baiting, enabling the allegations to be dismissed as ‘Communist’ propaganda.

The BBC reported in June of 1999 that two unnamed German men had “gone on trial, accused of running a child pornography ring in Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.” The pair, along with at least eleven identified but unindicted accomplices, “made video recordings of the gang sexually abusing children between the ages of three and 14 since 1993.”

A large but unspecified quantity of “videos, photography, magazines and CD-ROMs containing child pornography were confiscated.” Also noted was a possible connection to the Dutroux case: “There have been cases of Slovak children being taken to Vienna to make pornographic films. The Belgian paedophile Marc Dutroux … was a regular visitor to one Slovak town.”

The BBC also filed a brief report on a 1996 case that went almost completely unreported in the English language press: “Mexican police broke up an international child pornography ring based in the resort of Acapulco which they said had at least four thousand clients in the United States,” (emphasis added). A UN envoy investigating the case said that the “child pornography sometimes involved babies of less than one month old.”

On September 29 of 2000, The Irish Times reported that: “Eight people were arrested in Italy and three in Russia, and police said 1,700 people were being investigated in Italy,” as yet another pedophile network surfaced. The images traded by this ring were “divided into several categories … The most gruesome, police said, was coded ‘Necros Pedo,’ in which children were raped and tortured to death.”

And so it is that we first confront that most disturbing of topics – snuff films, which we all know don’t really exist. As recently as February of 1999, the New York Post assured readers that: “Snuff films are the stuff of urban legend … how did this legend get started? No one knows.” The unfortunate truth though is that they do, as it turns out, actually exist, and they likely have existed for as long as film has existed, though they weren't always known by that name.

According to the Post: “The term ‘snuff’ was actually coined during the Charles Manson case, when press reports repeated a rumor that the Manson ‘family’ had filmed home movies of the brutal slayings.” Other reports hold that the term was coined in 1976 by a writer for the New York Times who was in need of a phrase to describe reports of murders following sexual activity being captured on film.

Not long after that, as Carl Raschke wrote: “The Texas House Select Committee on Child Pornography disclosed in the late 1970s that investigators probing leads to organized crime in Houston, Dallas, and other major cities found that ‘slave’ auctions for sixteen- and seventeen-year-old boys were routinely held in Mexico. Some of the boys were featured in brutal snuff or ‘slasher’ movies.”

Raschke also quotes from a study by U.S. mental health professionals that claimed that a child from Mexico “can be packaged, delivered, and sold deep within this country in a short time,” and that many are purchased solely “for the purpose of killing.” In Enslaved, Gordon Thomas reported that: “At the start of the year [1991] Britain's Scotland Yard was continuing to investigate reports that up to twenty children in London had been murdered last year in [snuff films] and the video tapes sold on the Continent.”

An account of the Italian case carried by the Guardian affirmed the existence of snuff films: “police have discovered a massive international paedophile network selling violent child-pornography videos to clients in Italy, the US and Germany … (authorities are) trying to identify 5,000 people who are suspected of attempting to purchase the videos, some of which appear to contain images of children being tortured and murdered.”

The UK’s Independent, in a follow-up published in November of 2000, also confirmed that the seized materials did in fact include child snuff films: “Horrified investigators gathered images of more than 2,000 children who were filmed while being abused, raped, and … killed.” By that time, close to 1,500 people had been charged in the case, but not - as the Guardian noted - “those in high places who are believed to form a ‘paedophile lobby.’”

As in the Belgian and Latvian cases, there were clear indications of high-level complicity and a strong belief among the Italian people that the facts of the case were being covered up. And as with the other cases, the magistrate heading up the inquiry “provoked a furore by denouncing a ‘paedophile lobby’ supported by politicians which he said openly obstructed the investigators and worked to prevent tougher sanctions for the consumers of child pornography,” according to the Independent.

The New York Times reported in March of 1997 that there is “growing public indignation in France and elsewhere about the recurrent reports of kidnapping, rape or incest involving the very young.” The same Times report noted that: “police across France have detained more than 250 people and confiscated some 5,000 videocassettes” in conjunction with an investigation into a massive child pornography ring. Those detained by police were described as “mainly married professionals.” A dozen of them would soon turn up dead, allegedly suicide victims.

In June, the News Telegraph spoke of over 800 French homes being raided and 204 suspects being taken into custody the week before. Among those detained were: “More than 30 teachers … and a number of priests,” as well as the deputy mayor of the town of Saint Mihiel. By the end of the week, four had committed suicide, including a school headmaster.

Three years later, the BBC filed a very brief report noting that a verdict was due “in the trial of more than sixty people accused of possessing child pornography. One of the judges hearing the case said examining the video evidence made him feel physically sick.” In a familiar refrain, it was reported that: “the French courts have been accused of attacking the easy targets -- porn consumers -- rather than producers and distributors. And one children’s rights group has alleged that senior public figures were among those investigated -- but their cases were dropped before coming to court.”

In 1998, another large-scale international ring was discovered operating out of the Netherlands and Berlin, Germany. The New York Times reported that investigators called the case “nauseating,” in that “images of abuse of even babies and infants were peddled via the Internet and other media.” Police discovered “voluminous records of what appear to be clients and suppliers from countries including Israel, Ukraine, Britain, Russia and the United States.”

The ring was first uncovered when a key member was found dead in Italy. According to The Irish Times, he was murdered by another member of the ring. His apartment in the Dutch town of Zandvoort was found to contain “thousands of digital images stored on computer disks,” as well as “hundreds of addresses of suspected suppliers and clients,” according to the New York Times. The images shocked even veteran sex-crimes investigators, one of whom stated that the seized evidence “left [him] speechless … It looks like the perpetrators are not dealing with human beings but with objects.”

In September 1998, another ring was raided – what the BBC described as “a larger and more sinister paedophile network called Wonderland.” The network was so named in honor of Lewis Carroll’s revered children's book, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Carroll was widely known to have a predilection for underage girls and boys, and is now something of a patron saint of pedophiles around the globe.

A concerted effort has been made over the decades to cover up Carroll’s pedophilic tendencies, though the truth is evident even in the heavily whitewashed profiles of him that can be found in modern encyclopedias. Microsoft's Encarta notes that: “Always a friend of children, particularly little girls, Carroll wrote thousands of letters to them,” and also that he “gained an additional measure of fame as an amateur photographer. Most of his camera portraits were of children in various costumes and poses, including nude studies.”

The Encyclopaedia Britannica reports that Carroll’s photographic ‘hobby’ was abandoned in 1880, while dismissing suggestions that “this sudden decision was reached because of an impurity of motive for his nude studies.” Britannica also notes that Carroll - who was raised in an environment where there were “few friends outside the family,” and who was ordained a deacon in the Church of England on the winter solstice of 1861 (an occult holiday) - generally lost interest in his child ‘friends’ when they reached the age of twelve.

Wonderland is also the name of the quarterly publication of the Lewis Carroll Collector's Guild, which bills itself as a “voluntary association of persons who believe nudist materials are a constitutionally protected expression and whose collective interests include pre-teen nudes.” As Gordon Thomas has noted: “In Wonderland the ‘delights’ of ‘transgenerational sex’ pepper the pages.” Such is the legacy of the men whose literary works are peddled to our children … but here I digress.

The San Jose Mercury News reported that: “Police in … 22 states and 13 foreign countries conducted coordinated raids … aimed at breaking up an Internet child-pornography ring … The ring involves as many as 200 people around the world, who exchanged over the Internet thousands of sexually explicit images of children as young as 18 months.” The Independent later reported that the ring “shared pictures of children being abused -- in some cases live via web-cam broadcasts over the internet.”

The raids included homes in “Australia, Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Portugal and Sweden,” according to the New York Times, which added that: “Several dozen people were arrested, but officials said they expected more than 100 to be charged.” The Independent later reported that 107 suspects were ultimately arrested. The Mercury News implied that this may be only the tip of the iceberg: “The ring actually extends into 47 countries.”

The case was described by a British official as “stomach-churning.” The Times reported that “Wonderland Club members are believed to have posed their own children for pictures … In other cases … parents may have taken money to let their children be used.” The Guardian reported that over 1,250 children were featured in the photos and videos, “many of whom suffered appalling injuries and were seen sobbing uncontrollably as they were being sexually violated.” The Independent added that the victimized children were “mostly under [the age of] 10.”

A BBC report held that the combined raids resulted in the seizure of more than “750,000 computer images of children.” A Detective Superintendent with the British National Crime Squad called these images “disgusting and the behavior that has been carried out is absolutely appalling.” Though ignored by the American press, “Wonderland originated in the United States.”

Among the scores of U.S. homes raided, one yielded a “database of more than 100,000 sexual photographs of naked boys and girls.” Interestingly enough, the Times also noted that another raid, “in Missouri, turned up a cache of weapons as well as child pornography in a heavily fortified trailer,” illustrating once again - as did the Dutroux case - the close ties between organized pedophilia and other terrorist assaults against society.

As with the earlier raids in Europe, a rash of ‘suicides’ soon followed. By October 24, the Mercury News was reporting that no fewer than four of the thirty-four American suspects had killed themselves. These included a retired Air Force pilot, a microbiologist at the University of Connecticut, and a computer consultant in Colorado.

In the UK, the Wonderland raids - dubbed Operation Cathedral - resulted in the indictments of eight suspects. One of the eight turned up dead four months later – another alleged suicide. The other seven were given ridiculously light sentences in February of 2001 for their complicity in inflicting unfathomable abuse on countless children. Sentences ranged from 12 to 30 months.

Just a few weeks before the sentences were handed down, the Guardian was reporting that: “Police today arrested 13 suspected paedophiles in the largest ever UK operation against child pornography.” Once again a massive amount of appalling evidence was seized, with most of the material featuring “scenes of children being raped and sexually abused.”

The Independent reported in February of 2001 that: “Detectives working on the [Wonderland] case discovered that many of the paedophiles were also members of other child pornography groups.” One of the groups most closely tied to Wonderland was a ring known as the Orchid Club, which had been exposed by a 1996 investigation in San Jose, California. That investigation had led to the indictment of sixteen men on charges of conspiring to produce and exchange child pornography. Members of the club were identified in at least nine states and three foreign countries.

By the time of the Wonderland raids, the Mercury News was able to report that the purported ringleader of the Orchid Club and “twelve others either have pleaded guilty or have been convicted in connection with that case.” Their crimes included recruiting “young relatives and friends of their own children to be molested and photographed.”

The club was also, like Wonderland, involved in “real-time exploitation of children” on the internet. Club members were able to send in requests and have them acted-out on live feeds. The club also held a pedophile ‘summit,’ at which members “traded stories about pre-teen girls they had molested and photographed in sexually explicit poses.” The summit was held, appropriately enough, on April 20 – the birth date of Adolf Hitler and a major satanic holiday.

In late March of 2001, yet another interlinked global network was exposed. The Independent reported that: “US authorities announced the arrest of four American citizens for involvement in an international child-porn ring called Blue Orchid.” The Los Angeles Times added further details the next day, reporting that “the United States and Russia have shut down a Moscow-based international pornography ring that used the Internet to sell videotapes of children engaged in sexual acts.”

These tapes were said to sell for “between $200 and $300.” An Associated Press release held that: “Police seized some 600 videotapes, 200 digital video disks and many boxes of photographs.” Video duplication equipment and sales and shipping records were also seized, leading to “criminal inquiries in 24 nations … Many of the tapes were bought by people in the United States; others went to Germany, Britain, France, Denmark, China, Kuwait, Mexico and scores of other countries.”

The Times reported that nine people had been arrested and fifteen search warrants issued. The AP report noted that four of those arrested were in Russia, where two suspects had, alas, “committed suicide.” The ring was also said by the Times to offer what were cryptically referred to as “custom-made videos” for the hefty price of $5,000 each. The contents of these videos were not revealed.

What was revealed though was that “the prevalence of child pornography has increased dramatically with the growth of the Internet. There are approximately 100,000 web sites worldwide associated with child pornography.” This point was reinforced the very next day when the UK press reported police raids on yet another pedophile ring.

The Guardian reported that: “More than 30 people, including a … man working for a national youth organization, were arrested yesterday in dawn raids on the homes of suspected paedophiles.” Once again being sold and traded were images “which showed children being abused.”

A report on the case in the Independent quoted a law enforcement spokesman as revealing “that those arrested included members of ‘some interesting professions,’” though demurring from revealing what those professions might be. The official also said that they had “a disturbing scenario of one or two juveniles who have been caught in this way. One of them appears to be a 13-year-old boy.”

The police did acknowledge that the arrested boy was “also a potential victim and would be treated in that light,” which seems rather obvious. Nevertheless, a follow-up to the story that the Independent ran in May reported that the boy had become “one of the youngest people to be listed on the sex offenders’ register.”

The very next month, the Guardian carried a report on Eric Franklin Rosser – accused child pornographer, one of the FBI's ten most wanted criminals and a former keyboardist for John Cougar Mellencamp’s band. According to the report: “Investigators believe Rosser’s material is among pornography circulated by a British paedophile ring … More than 1,800 members are thought to belong to a club called Teenboys. Its website features boys aged around 12 … Teenboys is considered bigger than the notorious Wonderland Club.”

Meanwhile, a pedophile ring in Australia with high-level government connections was handled in a slightly different way. As The Irish Times reported on July 17, 1998:

“Police suspect a series of gruesome gay hate killings in the Sydney region could be the work of a serial killer whose victims might be linked through a notorious paedophile ring. The latest mutilation murder was that of Australia's longest serving mayor, Frank Arkell, aged 68, who was bludgeoned to death in his flat and who had previously faced 29 child sex charges.

“In the past few months two other men, one a convicted child sex offender, were attacked in their homes in similar circumstances and also suffered horrific injuries. Arkell, the former Lord Mayor of Wollongong, 50 miles south of Sydney, was a key witness in a royal commission into police corruption which uncovered a network of paedophiles.”

Those serial killers sure come in handy sometimes.

The Pedophocracy, Part II:  ... to Washington

"Paul and Shirley Eberle wrote The Politics of Child Abuse, a book that accuses mothers, mental health professionals, and prosecutors of feeding children stories about sexual abuse. Since the book was published by Lyle Stuart in l986, the Eberles have been cited as experts in sexual abuse trials … What is startling about the Eberles' reputation as ground-breaking experts in the field is that their dubious credentials have not been widely challenged … Their publication, Finger, depicted scenes of bondage, S & M, and sexual activities involving urination and defecation. A young girl portrayed with a wide smile on her face sits on top of a man whose penis is inside of her; a woman has oral sex with a young boy in a drawing entitled ‘Memories of My Boyhood.'"

Ms. Magazine, December 1988

While the size and scope of these operations have grown rapidly in recent years, America has - as it turns out - always been a nation whose laws were friendly to purveyors of child pornography. It was just over twenty years ago - in 1978 - that the very first federal statute on child pornography was passed into law. While forbidding production and sale, the statute placed no restrictions at all on the possession or trade of such materials.

New laws enacted in 1984 forbid the trade of child pornography regardless of whether any money changed hands, though possession still remained legal. In fact, as recently as 1990, private possession of child pornography was legal in 44 of the 50 states, despite the inescapable fact that all such materials were, by necessity, illegally produced and/or illegally acquired.

Technology has for some time now played a key role in greatly expanding the availability of child pornography. The Polaroid camera, for example, eliminated the need for child pornographers to have access to complicit photo labs. Home video cameras did likewise for moving images. Personal computers, digital cameras, web cams, scanners, and - especially - the Internet, have vastly expanded the reach of child pornography networks.

In the age of the Internet, child pornography is a booming business. The Los Angeles Times noted in December of 1999 that: “the number of investigations for Internet-related child pornography is soaring. The FBI launched 1,125 such inquiries this year, more than twice as many as last year.” In the wake of this rising tide, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling on December 17, 1999 which struck a serious blow to the prosecution of child pornography cases.

As the Times reported, the decision stipulated that “the government cannot prohibit computer-generated sexual images that only appear to be pictures of children.” A later report noted that appeals court judge Donald Molloy stated that the First Amendment bars the government from criminalizing the generation of “images of fictitious children engaged in imaginary but explicit sexual conduct.”

On January 22, 2001, the United States Supreme Court agreed to hear an appeal of the case. Should the presidential appointers on the high court choose to affirm the decision of the lower court, prosecution of child pornography cases will become all but impossible in all fifty states. Until that time, prosecutors are “barred from bringing virtual-child pornography cases in California and the eight other Western states within the jurisdiction of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.”

As critics have noted, graphics technology now available to the general public is so sophisticated that it is virtually impossible to determine if an image has been digitally altered, and if therefore any actual children were involved in the generation of the image. Justice Department lawyers argued that very point, noting that the “government may find it impossible in many cases to prove that a pornographic image is of a real child.”

Any good defense attorney could, in other words, raise reasonable doubt as to the authenticity of an image. It could in fact be argued that all such computer images “only appear to be pictures of children.” Computer images are not in fact photos, but are digital computer files that display as a facsimile of the original photo. A sound legal argument could be made that all digitally transferred and displayed child pornography is therefore legal, as it doesn't represent 'real children.'

That should come as great news to the international child pornography networks, given that the United States is their number-one market. According to investigative author Gordon Thomas, the majority of child pornography produced worldwide is targeted at the U.S., where by the early 1990s it was already a $3 billion a year business, and growing.

Thomas claims that - according to law enforcement figures - over 22 million copies of child pornography videos were sold or rented in the U.S. in 1991. He also writes that much of that pornographic material is produced here, where it is “part of the largest segment of movie making in the United States.” Jan Hollingsworth concurs with that figure, describing child pornography as: “A three-billion-dollar - per year - U.S. industry that grossed twice that worldwide. It [is] bigger than Disney. Much bigger.”

Speaking of Disney, Thomas notes that child porn videos are frequently trafficked internationally by deceptively packaging them as Disney videos. Strangely enough, the first man to benefit from the circuit court decision was Patrick J. Naughton. You may remember him as the executive with the Walt Disney Co. who ran one of the company's kid-friendly web sites. Naughton was arrested and later tried on child pornography charges.

He was convicted on December 16, just one day before the decision was handed down in the case before the circuit court. Within hours of the appeals court ruling, Naughton was released by federal prosecutors on $100,000 bail. Despite the fact that he was, as the Times acknowledged, convicted of “possessing pictures of actual children,” the decision was made to release him “until the impact of the court's ruling can be sorted out,” illustrating the significant undermining of existing law that the court ruling portends.

Closely associated with child pornography is, of course, child abuse. It should go without saying that all kids used in child pornography are abused children, their abuse recorded on film and tape for the depraved enjoyment of other child abusers. Also closely associated with child pornography is the always controversial issue of 'missing children.'

There is considerable debate as to whether there is a problem in this country with missing children. Some claim that 200,000 or more children disappear without a trace every year. Others steadfastly maintain that numbers such as those are grossly inflated, and that abduction of children by strangers with bad intent is actually quite rare.

The problem is that nobody really knows for sure, since the FBI - America's compiler of crime statistics - doesn't bother to keep track. As Ted Gunderson, former FBI station chief for Los Angeles, has stated: “The FBI has an accurate count on the number of automobiles stolen every year. It knows the number of homicides, rapes and robberies, but the FBI has no idea of the number of children that disappear every year. They simply do not ask for the statistics.”

Many believe that the numbers aren't compiled because the FBI doesn't want to know – or more accurately, the FBI doesn't want the American people to know. What is known though is that reports of child abuse have skyrocketed. Between 1963 and 1988, reported cases of child abuse rose from 150,000 to 2,000,000 per year, a 1300% increase in just a quarter-century.

Child abuse may in fact be the most prevalent - and possibly the most significant - crime in American society, given that it provides the breeding ground for so much of the more visible crime plaguing Western culture. As Thomas reports: “over 90 percent of the teenage prison population are now victims of child abuse,” and that population is growing rapidly.

In the wake of this rising tide, the Los Angeles Times reported in March 2001 that: “President [a clearly inappropriate use of the word] Bush's budget will trim a program aimed at preventing child abuse and cut some child care spending … A child abuse prevention program will see an 18% cut.” That money will apparently be much better spent on handing out tax breaks for the wealthy and building missile defense shields … but here I digress.

Author and e-zine editor Robert Sterling has written of what he refers to as “a pattern of trivialization of child molestation evidence” that seems to characterize high-profile media stories. He points out, for instance, that in the highly publicized Woody Allen and Mia Farrow child custody case, all the attention was focused on Allen’s illicit romance with Soon-yi Previn.

Almost entirely ignored in the media coverage was the fact that Allen was also charged with molesting his own seven-year-old adopted daughter, Dylan. While the press dismissed those allegations as unfounded and unworthy of reporting, Sterling notes that “Connecticut state authorities, based on the testimony of Dylan and others, have stated that they do believe Woody did molest her, but decided not to prosecute anyway,” allegedly to spare the child any further trauma.

Sterling also takes note of the “case of the Menendez brothers, who, after admitting to murdering their parents, painfully revealed that they were ruthlessly abused and molested by them over the years.” Their claims were never fully investigated and the boys were “viciously demonized for trying to escape the murder charges and accused of making up their abuse,” though there was in fact clear evidence of that abuse, according to a private investigator who worked on the case.

Also noted is the kid-gloves treatment afforded Michael Jackson when he was charged with molestation: “even though the accusations against him are widely believed to be true, [they] are merely passed off with a laugh among other smirking monologue jokes on Jay Leno.” And of course, though unmentioned by Sterling, sister LaToya was ridiculed by the media when she came forward with stories about the sexual abuse suffered by the Jackson kids at the hands of their father.

Sterling references other cases as well, including the over-hyped au-pair trial in which evidence of prior abuse of the child by his parents was consistently ignored, and the Susan Smith case, in which the media refused to consider whether her own severe childhood abuse could have been a factor in the murder of her children, despite the fact that her father admitted to the chronic abuse.

Coupled with the fact that the press have consistently downplayed the occurrence of child molestation is the equally disturbing fact that that very same media have actively promoted the sexualization of children – a trend that has been greatly accelerated in recent years, and which serves to legitimize pedophilia.

Taking note of the proliferation of young teen - and even pre-teen - sex symbols, Tom Junod wrote in Esquire that: “the entire culture is besotted with the erotic promise of teenage girls … The lure of jailbait now supplies the erotic energy to a popular culture desperate for what’s new, what’s young, what’s alive.”

The Junod article is, by the way, a profile of Greg Dark, one half of the former ‘Dark Brothers’ – notorious purveyors of dark-themed, occult-tinged porno films. Dark is rather noteworthy for openly peddling child pornography, in that many of his films featured a very young Traci Lords, who began working with the Dark Brothers at the age of thirteen.

But Dark has put those days long behind him. He is now working comfortably in the mainstream. And he is no longer marketing teen sexuality. No, now he is creating music videos … for Britney Spears, Mandy Moore and the pre-pubescent Leslie Carter (sister of Aaron Carter and Back Street Boy Nick Carter). That is, according to Dark, a completely different line of work.

Some interesting facts about Dark emerge in the Esquire profile. It is revealed, for instance, that he was raised by a satanist father. Dark’s father “used to read to Gregory from the works of Aleister Crowley, the noted satanist, when Gregory was very young.” His father’s collection of ‘black magick’ books is one of Dark’s most cherished possessions.

Also revealed is that Dark is a master manipulator, as he candidly admits to his interviewer: “And the thing is, I like manipulating people. I’m comfortable manipulating people. I’m good at it.” Junod adds that, during Dark’s porno days, he “asked people to do things … curious things … and they did them.” Such is the nature of the man crafting the images of America’s teen sex symbols and marketing them to millions of pre-teen fans ... but here again I digress.

Also closely associated with child pornography is the issue of child prostitution, which - make no mistake about it - is a booming business. A&E’s “Investigative Reports” has noted that law enforcement figures indicate that there are currently some 600,000 child prostitutes working in the United States and Canada and that $5 billion a year is generated worldwide by pimp organizations specializing in the exploitation of children.

A&E also reported that, throughout North America, there is a “growing use of children in the sex trade,” and that young boys make up 51% of that trade. The FBI has, of course, turned a blind eye; for the last quarter-century, “federal prosecutions of major pimp operations have been virtually nonexistent.” As Dr. Lois Lee has noted: “It’s not a high priority with the FBI to go after kids that are being transported across state lines. It’s really a disgrace.”

Dr. Lee is the founder of “Children of the Night,” an organization devoted to helping repair the shattered lives of child sex trade victims. Her facility, said to be the only one of its kind in the world, has seen 10,000 kids pass through its doors. Fully ninety percent of them have suffered a lifetime of abuse – first at home, and later on the streets and alleys of America’s big cities. Most of them suffered their first abuse before the age of three.

Many of these victims are runaways recruited from small towns across the country, then brought to prime child prostitution markets such as Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Once there, they have an average life span of just seven years; many of them never reach adulthood. For as long as they survive though, they reap enormous financial rewards for their pimps. The younger the child, the more popular they are with the ‘Johns,’ and therefore the more profitable for their exploiters.

All of this would tend to indicate that America is in something of a state of denial about the proliferation of child molestation, child prostitution, and child pornography rings, which constitute a vast underground in this country. But does this pedophilic underground extend into the halls of power? Is America's political, corporate and military elite hiding a particularly dirty little secret from the American people? A secret that, if exposed, could shatter America's cherished political and economic institutions and bring the house of cards crashing down?

Consider the case of Craig Spence, a behind-the-scenes Republican powerbroker in Washington. In June of 1989, the Washington Times published a story that sent shock waves across Capitol Hill. It seems that Spence had been operating a call-boy ring that supplied young boys, some of them very young boys, to the Washington elite of both political parties.

It was rumored that a list of influential clients ran to some 200 names, and some of them were publicly identified. On the list were such names as former CIA director William Casey, former prosecutor and current cable ‘news’ talking-head Joseph diGenova, nominally liberal Congressman Barney Frank, political activist/propagandist Phyllis Schlafly, and former Attorney General John Mitchell – who once co-hosted a party with Spence.

Also connected to the case were prominent figures in the media; on the guest lists for Spence's ‘parties’ were names such as Ted Koppel and Eric Severeid – who had both been close friends of Spence’s for more than two decades. Koppel had first met Spence when he was serving as the ABC bureau chief in Hong Kong and Spence was purportedly working as a correspondent in Vietnam.

Spence's mansion was found to be overflowing with surveillance equipment, including hidden cameras and microphones and an abundance of two-way mirrors. It was alleged that the ring was part of a CIA sexual blackmail operation, gathering compromising evidence on Washington politicos and foreign dignitaries. In August, following his arrest on weapon and drug charges, Spence gave an interview to the Times in which he openly claimed to work for the CIA and with high-ranking members of the Reagan and Bush administrations.

His claims were scoffed at and he was largely portrayed as a self-important blowhard. There are indications though that Spence was involved in covert operations as far back as Vietnam, working under journalistic cover. An associate of his from that time told the Washington Post: “Spence pulled disappearing acts in Vietnam -- sometimes for weeks at a time … Then he’d turn up, refusing to say where he’d been.”

In Washington, Spence was known to take his show on the road, giving some of his boys regular late-night tours of the White House. These tours were reportedly arranged by Donald Gregg, the national security adviser to then-Vice President George Bush. Though Gregg adamantly denied the accusation, there were undeniable connections between the two men, including the fact that Spence had once sponsored a dinner for Gregg.

The story quickly dropped off the media radar screen, and Washington and the press proceeded to pretend as though it had never been aired at all. According to a Washington Times reporter, the paper trail was quickly covered-up – some 20,000 documents pertaining to the case were sealed by court order. By the time Spence turned up dead in a Boston hotel room less than five months after the story first broke, he was all but forgotten.

The UK’s Independent reported that: “Boston police said he was found lying on his bed at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, dressed in evening clothes, with no obvious signs of injury. The police refused to comment on the cause of death.” The Post had earlier reported that Spence had told a friend: “I may be disappearing soon. It will be sudden. It may appear to be a suicide, but it won’t be.”

Elsewhere in the country, a political operative named Larry King - hailed as “the fastest rising black star in the Republican Party” - was embroiled in another high-level pedophile ring. King, whose operation was based in Omaha, Nebraska, had connections to Craig Spence as well as to Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Oliver North, and various other major players in Washington.

The story first began to emerge with the collapse of the Franklin Community Credit Union run by King, one of many such entities that went belly-up in the 1980s savings and loan scandals. A special senate 'Franklin Committee' was formed to look into allegations of financial improprieties, but soon found itself instead investigating claims of child prostitution, child pornography and ritual homicide. Committee members soon found themselves receiving anonymous threats.

The investigation led to the doorsteps of some of the most powerful men in the state of Nebraska – including newspaper publisher Harold Andersen (a lunch partner of George Bush), local columnist Peter Citron, a judge, the mayor of Omaha, the city's Games and Parks Commissioner, a prominent attorney, the former police chief of Omaha, businessman Alan Baer, and multi-billionaire Warren Buffet (for whose son King sponsored a political fund-raiser).

Also identified as a perpetrator by some of the victim/witnesses was George Bush himself. The scandal was completely ignored by the national U.S. media, and appears to have been covered by the local press for the sole purpose of discrediting the witnesses and denouncing the investigation as yet another ‘witch hunt.’

The case did attract some attention from the European press though. Pronto, the largest circulation weekly in Spain, reported that the scandal “appears to directly implicate politicos of the state of Nebraska and Washington, D.C. who are very close to the White House and George Bush.” The report also noted that “there is reason to believe that the CIA is directly implicated,” and that the “FBI refuses to help in the investigation and has sabotaged any efforts” by others to do so.

A documentary film crew from the UK’s Yorkshire Television, working in conjunction with the Discovery Channel, worked for months investigating the case. The result of their efforts was a film entitled “Conspiracy of Silence” which concluded that the child victims/witnesses were telling the truth. The documentary was scheduled to air on the Discovery Channel on May 3, 1994.

Just days before its scheduled airing, the film was pulled without explanation and all copies were ordered destroyed. At least one production copy of the video survived the purge, however, and has been known to circulate among those derisively labeled as ‘conspiracy theorists.’ For everyone else, the conspiracy of silence continues.

The Omaha operation, described in the film as a “large ring of rich and powerful pedophiles,” appears to have been in business for several years – with the knowledge of, and for the perverse pleasure of, a variety of city, state and federal authorities. Jerry Lowe, the first investigator assigned to the case by the Franklin Committee, reported back that: “The allegations regarding the exploitation of children are indeed disturbing. What appears to be documented cases of child abuse and sexual abuse dating back several years with no enforcement action being taken by the appropriate agencies is on its face, mind-boggling.”

The investigation revealed that many of the child victims had been recruited from one of America’s most revered charitable organizations – Boy’s Town, to whom King had maintained close ties since 1979. Senator Loran Schmit has said: “Boy’s Town came up frequently during the investigation, but we found it difficult to get information about Boy’s Town,” as did the film crew from Yorkshire Television.

Republican state senator and Franklin Committee member John DeCamp, in his book The Franklin Cover-Up, presents a compelling body of evidence to document the charges made by the child victims and various others associated with the operation. Equally disturbing is the evidence of the massive cover-up that was perpetrated by the FBI, local police, the grand jury assigned to the case, and of course the ever-compliant media.

The cover-up involved, according to DeCamp, the untimely deaths of at least fifteen key players in the scandal – including Franklin Committee investigator Gary Caradori, whose private plane was blown out of the sky on July 11, 1990 with Caradori and his eight-year-old son on board. Caradori had been threatened frequently, as had the witnesses from whom he was gathering information. His vehicle had also been repeatedly tampered with.

His brother claimed that Gary had told him that he had recently come into the possession of a key piece of evidence - specifically a book of addresses and phone numbers - which “if they knew he had it, they’d kill him.” The wreckage of his plane was, as a reporter on the scene noted, “strewn over a ¾ to 1 mile stretch.” A National Transportation Safety Board investigator acknowledged that: “the fact that the wreckage is scattered over a large area certainly demonstrates that it did break up in flight.”

Family members claimed that there were items missing from the plane’s wreckage, most significantly Caradori’s briefcase. Within twenty-four hours of the crash, all of his records had been impounded by the FBI. Nevertheless, the NTSB ruled that the crash had been accidental, with no evidence of sabotage.

The Franklin Committee - led by Senator Schmit, who suspected sabotage - ordered a private investigation into the cause of the crash. Strangely enough, the man selected to conduct that inquiry was William Colby, a fifty year veteran of intelligence operations whose career began in the OSS during World War II. Colby’s hiring was urged by his protégé, Senator DeCamp.

In the 1950s, Colby had served as the CIA station chief in Italy during the notorious Operation Gladio days. In the 1960s, he ran the equally notorious Phoenix assassination, torture and terror program in Vietnam that claimed from 20,000 to 40,000 lives. The program was steeped in mind control operations, including the conducting of terminal experiments on VC prisoners-of-war.

Colby next served as the director of the CIA under President Richard Nixon, before being replaced in that post by President Gerald Ford with George Bush. Considering his past history, Colby was certainly an odd choice to lead an inquiry aimed at ascertaining the truth. Colby’s finding, according to the Omaha World Herald, was that: “although the crash had some strange aspects, there was no specific evidence of sabotage.”

As appalling as the trail of dead witnesses was the fact that the child victims, rather than the perpetrators, were thrown in prison. One of them, a young female victim named Alisha Owen, achieved the rather dubious honor of spending more time in solitary confinement than any woman in the history of the Nebraska penal system. She was sentenced to 9-25 years in prison for allegedly committing perjury, ten years longer than the sentence received by King for looting his financial institution of $40 million.

As DeCamp explained to the “Conspiracy of Silence” film crew: “For some reason, they had to send a signal to every kid who is a potential witness.” Senator Schmit, who told the filmmakers that his career had been destroyed and that he had faced financial problems, believed that a clear signal was being sent to Nebraska politicians as well – a signal to not pursue the investigation any further.

A clearly disillusioned Schmit had this to say: “I used to be a firm believer that the system would work and that people who did things wrong would be punished. And we discovered victims who claimed to have been abused, and who the grand jury acknowledged had been abused, but they did not try to find out who had abused these individuals. Instead, they convicted Alisha Owen of perjury – indefensible from my point of view.”

It would be a full decade before any of the victims received even a semblance of justice, and that would ultimately come not from a criminal court, but from a civil court. In early 1999, a judgment was entered against defendant Larry King in favor of plaintiff Paul Bonacci – one of the most seriously abused of the child victims, whose abuse at the hands of King began when he was just six years old and which included his forced collaboration in the production of child snuff films. The memorandum of the district court's decision, issued on February 22, 1999, reads as follows:

“Between December 1980 and 1988, the complaint alleges, the defendant King continually subjected the plaintiff to repeated sexual assaults, false imprisonments, infliction of extreme emotional distress, organized and directed satanic rituals, forced the plaintiff to 'scavenge' for children to be a part of the defendant King's sexual abuse and pornography ring, forced the plaintiff to engage in numerous sexual contacts with the defendant King and others and participate in deviate sexual games and masochistic orgies with other minor children. The defendant King's default has made those allegations true as to him ...

“The now uncontradicted evidence is that the plaintiff has suffered much. He has suffered burns, broken fingers, beatings of the head and face and other indignities by the wrongful actions of the defendant King. In addition to the misery of going through the experiences just related over a period of eight years, the plaintiff has suffered the lingering results to the present time. He is a victim of multiple personality disorder, involving as many as fourteen distinct personalities aside from his primary personality. He has given up a desired military career and received threats on his life. He suffers from sleeplessness, has bad dreams, has difficulty in holding a job, is fearful that others are following him, fears getting killed, has depressing flashbacks, and is verbally violent on occasion, all in connection with the multiple personality disorder and caused by the wrongful activities of the defendant King.”

For his years of unspeakable abuse, physical and emotional suffering, and the complete shattering of his life, Bonacci was awarded one million dollars. While a bittersweet victory at best, it was considerably more than most other victims of such abuse have gotten. The trial was significant for another reason as well; it revealed a glimpse of the connections between the King case and various other multi-victim abuse cases around the country.

The Pedophocracy, Part III: Uncle Sam Wants Your Children

August 2001

"It should come as no surprise, then, that long-time CIA and ‘intelligence complex’ operatives turn up on the FMSF Advisory Board. Perhaps the most public member has been Dr. Louis Jolyon ‘Jolly’ West, a legendary figure in CIA mind control circles operating out of UCLA. Another is Dr. Martin Orne, an authority on torture who currently works at the University of Pennsylvania’s Experimental Psychiatry Lab … Still another false memory luminary is Margaret Singer, professor emeritus at the University of California-Berkeley."

Toward Freedom, May 1998

One of the names raised at the Bonacci trial was that of Michael Aquino. Aquino is the ‘High Priest’ and chief executive of the Temple of Set, an overtly satanic cult that split off from the Church of Satan in 1975. Besides tending to those duties, Aquino also has occupied his time serving as (according to an official biography once circulated by the Temple) a “Lieutenant Colonel, Military Intelligence, U.S. Army.”

Aquino was accused in court by the mother of a victim as being a key player in a nationwide pedophile ring. Paul Bonacci himself has also positively identified Aquino as an associate of King, known to the children only as 'the Colonel.' King's personal photographer has identified Aquino as the man to whom he saw King hand over a suitcase full of cash and bonds.

The photographer, Rusty Nelson, also has said that King told him that Aquino was part of the Contra guns and cocaine trafficking operation run by George Bush and another notorious Lt. Col., Oliver North. Aquino has also been linked to Offutt Air Force Base, a Strategic Air Command post near Omaha that was implicated in the investigation by the Franklin Committee. He was also claimed to have ordered the abduction of a Des Moines, Iowa paperboy.

This was certainly not the first time that Aquino had been implicated as a key figure in large scale pedophile/child pornography rings. In July of 1988, not long before the King and Spence cases broke, the San Jose Mercury News ran a lengthy exposé on the Presidio Child Development Center run by the U.S. Army in San Francisco.

Allegations of abuse being perpetrated at the center first emerged in November of 1986. Alarmed by accusations made by her child, a parent had sought a medical examination which confirmed that the three-year-old boy had in fact been anally raped. The boy identified his rapist as 'Mr. Gary,' a teacher at the center named Gary Hambright.

Even with the conclusive medical evidence, “it took the Army almost a month to notify the parents of other children who had been in 'Mr. Gary's' class that the incident had taken place.” Within a year, at least sixty victims had been identified, all between the ages of three and seven, and further “allegations would be made by parents that several more children were molested even after the investigation had begun.”

Amazingly enough, the center remained open for more than a year after the first case of abuse was reported, though the Mercury News noted that “day care centers under state jurisdiction are routinely closed when an abuse incident is confirmed.” And this was considerably more than a simple abuse incident that was confirmed.

The stories told by the children implicated many other perpetrators besides Hambright. They also told of being taken away from the center to be abused in private homes; at least three such houses were positively identified. They also told of being forced to play “poopoo baseball” and the “googoo” game – 'games' that involved the children being urinated and defecated upon, and being forced to ingest urine and feces.

Many of them also spoke of having guns pointed at them and of having been told that they and/or their parents and siblings would be killed if they told anyone what had been done to them. Despite the mounting number of victim/witnesses, and the numerous crimes alleged by these children, it was only Gary Hambright who was arrested - on January 5, 1987 - and he was charged with abusing just a single child. And even then the charges were dismissed just three months later, in March of 1987.

There is little doubt that literally dozens of children were in fact severely abused at the center. There was irrefutable medical evidence to document that fact. Five of the children had contracted chlamydia, a sexually transmitted disease; many others showed clear signs of anal and genital trauma consistent with violent penetration, which authorities chose to ignore. One mother complained to the San Francisco Chronicle that the FBI never interviewed her or her son, even after doctors had confirmed the boy’s abuse.

There were unmistakable psychological signs as well. As The American Journal of Orthopsychiatry noted in April of 1992: “The severity of the trauma for children at the Presidio was immediately manifest in clear cut symptoms. Before the abuse was exposed, parents had already noticed the following changes in their children: vaginal discharge, genital soreness, rashes, fear of the dark, sleep disturbances, nightmares, sexually provocative language, and sexually inappropriate behavior. In addition, the children were exhibiting other radical changes in behavior, including temper outbursts, sudden mood shifts, and poor impulse control. All these behavioral symptoms are to be expected in preschool children who have been molested.”

The journal article, written by Diane Ehrensaft, Ph.D., also noted that: “The Presidio case has confronted both the public at large and the mental health community with an extraordinary and abhorrent situation of grave psychological proportions: the willful molestation of young boys and girls by representatives of the most patriarchal and supposedly protective arm of the American government – the U.S. Army.”

The article further noted the nearly homicidal rage provoked in the fathers of the children abused in this way, as they saw the investigations of the crimes perpetrated against their children stonewalled and covered up. One father is quoted as saying: “When something about the Presidio comes on TV, I want to blow someone away.” Another father echoed this sentiment: “I was ready to blow the army base away.”

One of those who the fathers would have liked to blow away was Michael Aquino, along with his wife Lilith. One child positively identified the pair, known to the kids as 'Mikey' and 'Shamby,' and was also able to positively identify the Aquino's home and to describe with uncanny accuracy the distinctively satanic interior of the house. The young witness also claimed to have been photographed at the Aquinos' home.

On August 14 of 1987, a search warrant was served on the house. Confiscated in the raid were numerous videotapes, photographs, photo albums, photographic negatives, cassette tapes, and name and address books. Also observed was what appeared to be a soundproof room. Neither Aquino nor his wife were charged with any crimes, nor have they been to this day – a fact that Aquino claims proves his innocence.

The next month, a fire - which the Army deemed to be accidental - destroyed the Army Community Services Building adjacent to the Presidio's day care center. Strangely enough, “the fire occurred on the autumnal equinox, a major event on the satanic calendar,” as the Mercury News noted. The fire also destroyed some of the center's records.

“Three weeks later, fire struck again, this time at the day care center itself.” A building that housed four classrooms, including that of Gary Hambright, was completely destroyed. Investigators from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms determined that “both fires, contrary to the Army's finding, had been arson.”

In between the first and second fires (with evidence indicating that a third arson attempt had been made as well), Hambright was again indicted, this time charged with molesting ten children. In February of 1988, all but one of the charges were dropped. Shortly thereafter, the remaining count was dropped as well, and Hambright was a free man once again. No further charges were brought against him.

In January of 1988, Aquino filed suit against the Army to have it cleared from his record that he had been investigated as a suspected pedophile. According to court records, he also had the gall to charge “Captain Adams-Thompson [the father of a victim] with conduct unbecoming an officer because the Captain reported the allegations of child abuse to the San Francisco police.”

In denying Aquino's motion, the court concluded that “there was probable cause to title Aquino with offenses of indecent acts with a child, sodomy, conspiracy, kidnapping, and false swearing,” despite the fact that “the San Francisco police department (SFPD) closed its investigation and filed no charges against the plaintiff or anyone else.”

Aquino and various of his defenders have consistently claimed that no one was ever prosecuted in the case due to a lack of evidence – proof that the entire affair was no more than a ‘witch hunt.’ Of course, the failure to prosecute the federal charges could also be due to the fact that, at the time, the U.S. Attorney in San Francisco handling the case was Joseph Russoniello.

Russoniello would later be identified by reporter Gary Webb of the San Jose Mercury News as a player in the Contra cocaine smuggling operation led by Lt. Col. Oliver North and company, just as witnesses would later identify Lt. Col. Michael Aquino as an operative in the very same sordid affair. It always helps when your legal ‘adversaries’ are actually on your side.

In May of 1989, Aquino was again questioned in connection with child abuse investigations; this time at least five children in three cities were making the accusations. The children had seen Aquino in newspaper and television coverage of the Presidio case and immediately recognized him as one of their abusers.

Three of the children lived in Ukiah - former home of the People’s Temple - where Police Chief Fred Keplinger was overseeing the investigation of the allegations. The Mercury News quoted the chief as saying that “the children are believable. I have no doubt in my mind that something has occurred.” Aquino was also identified by children in Santa Rosa and Fort Bragg.

In the Fort Bragg case, “allegations of ritual abuse erupted ... in 1985 when several children at the Jubilation Day Care Center said they were sexually abused by a number of people at the day care center and at several locations away from the center, including at least two churches.” Aquino was identified as having been at one of those churches.

The Mercury News also reported that there was clear evidence of satanic cult activity on the grounds of the Presidio base, including an abundance of satanic graffiti, a satanic altar, and numerous artifacts of satanic rituals. A former MP at the base is quoted as saying: “We were sitting there, we've got a cult on the Presidio of San Francisco and nobody cares about it ... We were told by the provost marshal to just forget about it.”

On April 19, 1988 - the eve of Adolf Hitler’s birthday, and seven years to the day before the Oklahoma City Federal Building would explode, allegedly due to an act of ‘domestic terrorism’- an open-house was held on the grounds of the Presidio heralding the opening of the new day care facility built to replace the fire-damaged Child Development Center.

As a final note on the Presidio case, a report in the Marin Independent Journal revealed that Aquino owned a building in Marin County - inherited from his mother, Betty Ford-Aquino - that had been jointly leased to the Marin County Child Abuse Council and Project Care for Children. The stated purpose of Project Care was, interestingly enough, to assist parents in locating day care for their children.

As disturbing as the Presidio case was, it was just one of many ritual abuse cases directly tied to one or more branches of the United States armed forces. As the Mercury News reported: “By November, 1987 the Army had received allegations of child abuse at 15 of its day care centers and several elementary schools. There were also at least two cases in Air Force day care centers,” and another in a center run by the U.S. Navy.

In addition, “a special team of experts was sent to Panama [in June of 1988] to help determine if as many as 10 children at a Department of Defense elementary school had been molested and possibly infected with AIDS.” Yet another case emerged in a U.S.-run facility in West Germany.

These cases erupted at some of the most esteemed military bases in the country, including Fort Dix, Fort Leavenworth, Fort Jackson, and West Point. Many of those making the accusations were career military officers who had devoted their lives to unquestioned allegiance to the U.S. armed forces. Many would resign their posts in outraged protest.

It would be redundant to review all these cases, as most of them followed a remarkably similar pattern. Given though that West Point is America's premier military academy, and given also that the case - like many others - was linked by witnesses to the Presidio, a brief review is warranted here.

As The Times Herald Record reported in June of 1991: “The incidents [at the West Point Child Development Center] unfolded against a backdrop of satanic acts, animal sacrifices and cult-like behavior among the abusers, whose activities extended beyond the U.S. Military Academy borders to Orange County and a military base in San Francisco, parents charged.”

The case first broke in July of 1984, when a three-year-old girl found herself in the emergency room of the West Point Hospital with a lacerated vagina. She told the examining physician that a teacher at the day care center had hurt her. The next month, the parents of another child leveled accusations of abuse at the center.

As the Mercury News reported: “By the end of the year, 50 children had been interviewed by investigators. Children at West Point told stories that would become horrifyingly familiar. They said they had been ritually abused. They said they had had excrement smeared on their bodies and been forced to eat feces and drink urine. They said they were taken away from the day care center and photographed.”

Despite abundant medical and psychological evidence, and literally dozens of child witnesses, and despite “950 interviews by 60 FBI agents assigned to the investigation, an investigation led by former U.S. Attorney Rudolph Giuliani produced no federal grand jury indictments,” according to the Herald Record.

The Herald also noted that: “In 1987, Giuliani said his detailed investigation showed only one or two children were abused.” This was, it should be noted, a bare-faced lie from the fascistic future-mayor and would-be Senator, as the Herald report divulged: “a still-secret, independent report - produced by one of the nation's top experts on child sexual abuse - confirms the children's accusations of abuse.”

This was not the first time that the prestigious academy had shown an appalling willingness to overlook extreme levels of abuse directed at children by army personnel. A year before the abuse case broke, a 22-month-old child was murdered by an Army staff sergeant. The Mercury News reported that: “After a court martial hearing, the sergeant was given an 18 month suspended sentence and dishonorable discharge.”

In other words, he served no time and was essentially given a free ride for murdering a child. With help from Giuliani, the FBI, the U.S. Army, and the grand jury, the abusers of countless children at the day care center (which was, appropriately enough, building number 666 on the academy grounds) were likewise given a free ride.

As with the Franklin case, the children and their parents were to find justice only through the civil courts. The Herald Record reported that: “lawyers for both the government and the 11 child plaintiffs agreed that some children were sexually abused at the center two years ago” (again contradicting Giuliani's bogus conclusions). The government, however, claimed that it could not be held responsible, due to the “assault exemption in the Federal Tort Claim Act.”

As the New York Times explained: “under federal law the government cannot be held liable for assaults committed by its employees and thus cannot be sued for assault.” In other words, the Army did not dispute the allegations, it just rather cavalierly maintained that it was exempt from being sued. The court saw otherwise and awarded $2.7 million to nine of the child victims – paltry compensation for their suffering, but a victory of sorts nonetheless.

The Times opined that the settlement amount “was large for a child-abuse case in which no criminal charges were filed.” The article claimed that the failure to prosecute the case was due to the fact that “the Federal Bureau of Investigation found ‘insufficient evidence to prosecute,’” when in fact the Bureau appears to have deliberately ignored and/or covered-up that evidence.

And so ended the West Point case, except that - as one mother noted - it was hardly over: “These people stole our children. She's nothing like she used to be. She's a very angry little girl. She doesn't trust anyone. She's nothing like she was before this happened. It's never going to be over for them, or for us.”

The mother of a Presidio victim had this to say: “People keep telling us we've got to let it go -- just forget about it and go on ... Three weeks ago, our youngest daughter was having nightmares and our other daughter was closing out the whole world, going to her room and siting there, with no radio, no TV, no nothing. Tell me it's over.”

“I cannot accept promotion in a system that at first refused to acknowledge and now refuses to deal with the victims of extensive child abuse that occurred at the West Point Child Development Center.”

Army Captain Walter R. Grote, refusing a promotion to Major in June 1985. Grote referred to his protest as a “fight for the human rights of all children.”

The Pedophocracy, Part IV: McMolestation

August 2001

"Rarely has such a strange and little-understood organization had such a profound effect on media coverage of such a controversial matter. The [False Memory Syndrome] foundation is an aggressive, well-financed PR machine adept at manipulating the press, harassing its critics, and mobilizing a diverse army of psychiatrists, outspoken academics, expert defense witnesses, litigious lawyers, Freud bashers, critics of psychotherapy, and devastated parents.”

Columbia Journalism Review, July/August 1997

If there's anyone who can relate to the sentiments expressed by the Presidio and West Point parents, it is the mothers and fathers of the children from the McMartin Preschool – and there are literally hundreds of them. The McMartin case was, of course, the largest and most well-publicized of the multi-victim, multi-perpetrator ritual abuse cases that sprang forth in the 1980s.

It was also a case that was grotesquely misrepresented by the media, both mainstream and 'alternative' – perhaps nowhere more so than in the appalling writings of Alexander Cockburn, the allegedly ‘progressive’ Warren Committee apologist. Cockburn went so far as to write an op-ed piece entitled “The McMartin Case: Indict the Children, Jail the Parents,” which ran in The Wall Street Journal on February 8, 1990.

Virtually everyone agrees that the children of McMartin were victimized, the only debate being whether that victimization was by abusive caretakers or by overzealous therapists and prosecutors. Either way, Cockburn’s stance on the case was unconscionable, and should have sent a clear signal to the progressive community that there was considerably more to the McMartin allegations than met the eye.

The harsh reality is that the McMartin Preschool, in conjunction with at least two other Manhattan Beach preschools and one babysitting service, was the center of a massive child prostitution and child pornography ring whose operations were protected and covered up by any number of local, state and federal officials – or so it would appear.

A glimpse of the true nature and scale of the McMartin case is given by an official correspondence from Sergeant Beth Dickerson of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department to Agent Ken Lanning at the FBI Academy Behavioral Sciences Unit in Quantico, Virginia, dated February 10, 1985, and reproduced in Larry Kahaner's Cults That Kill:

“In August 1983, the Manhattan Beach Police Department began an investigation regarding allegations of sexual abuse occurring at the McMartin Preschool ... Altogether, approximately 400 children were evaluated by therapists at Children's Institute International. All interviews were videotaped and 350 children disclosed sexual behavior ...

“In all, the victims named seven teachers (six women and one male) at the preschool as having molested them. These individuals are currently charged with 209 counts of child molestation. Also named are about 30 other individuals still uncharged, as well as numerous unidentified 'strangers.'

“McMartin victims allege sexual abuse occurred on school grounds as well as at a local market, churches, a mortuary, various homes, a farm, a doctor's office, other preschools and other unknown locations ...

“Most children state they were photographed in the nude ... They mention drinking a red or pink liquid that made them sleepy ... Children disclose animal sacrificing (bunnies, ponies, turtles, etc.) and some of this occurred in churches. Victims describe sticks put in their vaginas and rectums and also being 'pooped' and 'peed' on. Children say that the adults sometimes dressed in black robes, formed a circle around them and chanted.

“In May 1984, another preschool investigation began in the same policing jurisdiction stemming from a McMartin victim who identified the Manhattan Ranch Preschool as a place where he was taken and molested ... additional children have begun disclosing sexual abuse (approximately 60) and they have named six or more additional suspects ... These children talk of strangers coming to the school and molesting them, being taken off campus and molested, being photographed nude and some talk of animals being abused. The children talk of being hit with sticks and of being 'peed' and 'pooped' on ...

“[T]he resources of the police department and the District Attorney's office were not sufficient in order to follow up on the multitude of uncharged suspects in both preschools ... The Task Force became operational on November 5, 1984. It should be noted that the Task Force has two other preschools under investigation for alleged sexual abuse in addition to McMartin and Manhattan Ranch. One, the Learning Game Preschool, is clearly linked to McMartin.”

An astounding total of 460 children reported being sexually abused at the three closely-linked Manhattan Beach schools. Even more astounding, investigative author Michael Newton (among others) has noted that Children’s Institute International determined that: “a full eighty percent displayed physical symptoms, including vaginal or rectal scarring, anal bleeding, painful bowel movements, and the 'anal wick reflex' associated with violent penetration.”

The stories told by the victim/witnesses were remarkably similar as to the nature of the abuse, the locations where the abuse took place, and the perpetrators of the abuse. And these were not, as is commonly believed, all preschool children telling these stories; some of the witnesses were former students in their teens and twenties, and their stories corroborated those of the children.

The older witnesses were not allowed to testify at the McMartin trials, however, as the statute of limitations for the crimes committed against them had expired. Many of the younger witnesses were unable to offer testimony as well, for various reasons – most notably because they were too severely traumatized. Even so, as author Jan Hollingsworth has pointed out, prosecutors had at their disposal “more than a hundred child witnesses as old as eleven and a truckload of medical reports bearing documentation of scarred genitals and anuses.”

The stories told by these children, it should be noted, were not fed to them by some diabolical team of therapists and headline-seeking journalists. Many of them were offered spontaneously to hundreds of parents and scores of childcare specialists. And the victims of the McMartin Preschool, all adults now, still tell the same stories today.

While anyone suggesting that the allegations in the McMartin case were true - and that a massive cover-up concealed the true nature and scope of the case - is likely to be labeled a 'conspiracy theorist,' the most preposterous conspiracy theory surrounding McMartin has always been the notion that some cabal of overzealous therapists was able to implant 'false memories' of heinous abuse in the minds of nearly 500 individuals, and have them persist to this day.

Despite the vast number of eyewitnesses - most of them bearing physical evidence of abuse - and despite the fact that the judge who presided over more than a year of pre-trial testimony ruled that the state had more than enough evidence to proceed to trial, District Attorney Ira Reiner inexplicably dropped all charges against five of the seven defendants in the case on January 17 of 1986. Six days before that, he had summarily dismissed two prosecutors on the case.

At least three dozen other suspects who had been independently identified by numerous witnesses were never indicted at all. One of these was a man named Robert Winkler, arrested in neighboring Torrance, California for running a baby-sitting service out of the Coco Palms Motel that authorities described as a front for a sexual abuse ring. Children in the McMartin case recognized Winkler in news footage as the man they had known as the 'Wolfman.'

The kids described Winkler as being a frequent visitor to the school, delivering drugs for use in abusive rituals, which were sometimes conducted in churches, a cemetery, or a crematorium. The Wolfman, conveniently enough, turned up dead on the eve of his trial, allegedly of a drug overdose.

Winkler wasn't the only one to miss his day in court in conjunction with the McMartin case. Judy Johnson, the first McMartin parent to lodge a complaint, turned up dead before her scheduled testimony as well. When her body was found sprawled naked on the floor of her home, her death was said to be due to complications from her chronic alcoholism. She was also derided by defense attorneys and their media allies as a mentally unfit crank.

In truth, Johnson was not known to have any mental problems - or a drinking problem - prior to learning of the unthinkable abuse her child had suffered. Considered a key prosecution witness, Johnson received frequent threats prior to her death and was followed when she ventured out in public. Many of the other McMartin parents were openly skeptical of Johnson’s stated cause of death.

A former Hermosa Beach police officer named Paul Bynum, who had been hired by the parents of victims as a private investigator, turned up dead on the eve of his scheduled testimony as well. His death by gunshot was ruled a suicide, though those close to Bynum dispute that finding to this day.

Among other things, Bynum may have testified about his examination of the tunnel excavation project conducted at the school site. This was, of course, the object of much derision by the media. The fact that the children repeatedly told stories of tunnels under the property by which they could be secretly transported to and from the school, and in which they were subjected to unspeakable abuse in a secret room, was frequently cited as ‘proof’ that the children's stories were fabrications.

It was universally accepted that the tunnels did not actually exist, that being the consensus view of the media and law enforcement authorities. But while it is true that the investigation commissioned by the District Attorney's office found no evidence of tunnels, one of the dirty little secrets of the McMartin case is that the tunnels did, in fact, exist.

Many of the parents were not satisfied with the ridiculously superficial examination by the DA’s office, and commissioned another investigation of the site when the property was sold in April of 1990. To lead the project, they hired E. Gary Stickel, Ph.D., a highly regarded archeologist recommended to them by the Chair of the Interdisciplinary Program of the Archeology Department at UCLA. Stickel had served as a consultant to Lucasfilms on the Indiana Jones movies.

Also brought on board were several other technical specialists. As Stickel wrote in his report on the excavation: “By engaging a highly recommended professional archeological team, [the parents] hoped to bring scientific authority to whatever might be found or a definitive resolution for whatever was not to be found.” And what the team found was precisely what the children had been telling them they would find for the previous seven years:

“The project unearthed not one but two tunnel complexes as well as previously unrecognized structural features which defied logical explanation. Both tunnel complexes conformed to locations and functional descriptions established by children's reports. One had been described as providing undetected access to an adjacent building on the east. The other provided outside access under the west wall of the building and contained within it an enlarged, cavernous artifact corresponding to children's descriptions of a ‘secret room.’

“Both the contour signature of the walls and the nature of recovered artifacts indicated that the tunnels had been dug by hand under the concrete slab floor after the construction of the building ... Not only did the discovered features fulfill the research prequalifications as tunnels designed for human traffic, there was also no alternative or natural explanation for the presence of such features ...

“If the stories of the children were bogus fantasies, there is no excuse for the tunnels discovered under the school. If there really were tunnels, there is no excuse for the glib dismissal of any and all of the complaints of the children and their parents.”

This investigation was completed before the McMartin trials had concluded, yet this devastating evidence was never presented in court by the prosecution. The existence of this report, complete with photos and maps of the tunnel complexes, was known to the local and national press, but it was never reported. To this day, it is denied that any tunnels ever existed under the McMartin Preschool.

The denial of the tunnels is necessary to maintain the illusion that the children were not credible witnesses, that illusion being essential to the cover-up. For if the children were credible, the implications run far deeper than the tunnels under the school. There is, for example, the stories told by the children of being pimped out as child prostitutes in private homes and businesses all over the community.

They also spoke frequently of being photographed and videotaped while being abused. District Attorney Robert Philibosian publicly declared the McMartin Preschool to be an elaborate front for a massive child pornography operation. Twenty-three parents filed a civil lawsuit making the very same claim, one that appears to be strongly supported by the facts of the case.

Other stories told repeatedly by the children are even more disturbing. They told of being forced to witness and participate in the ritual torture, killing and mutilation of animals and, on occasion, of human babies and children as well. They spoke of being forced to drink the blood and eat the flesh of the slaughtered corpses, of witnessing the beheading of infants, and of being forced to stab infants themselves.

They told as well of being sealed in coffins with the mutilated corpses. And they spoke of being subjected to every sort of depraved sexual activity imaginable, including necrophilia, copraphilia and bestiality. The abuse was of such stunning brutality that it is almost beyond human comprehension that anyone could inflict such physical and psychological torture on children.

And yet these stories were soon being told by thousands of other kids across the country as preschool abuse cases spread like wildfire. Young children from all walks of life, and from all parts of the country, all telling remarkably similar stories of horrific ritual abuse – how was this possible? If they were all victims of 'false memories,' how vast a conspiracy would be required for therapists all across the country to implant the very same memories in all of these children?

Experts have noted that the victimized children show a level of knowledge that defies rational explanation if the kids have not experienced what they claim to have experienced. For instance, these child victims can accurately describe the look, smell, texture and colors of human viscera. This is an ability, it has been argued, that very few adults possess, other than those who have been trained as surgeons or coroners.

These children also display a remarkable level of knowledge of a wide variety of human sexual practices, including many bizarre acts that, again, most adults do not have knowledge or awareness of. If these children did not experience these things firsthand, then how did they gain such knowledge?

In February of 1985, Officer Sandi Gallant of the San Francisco Police Department submitted a report to her superiors noting the similarities in numerous ritual abuse cases. She had gathered evidence from fellow officers and police departments across the country and summarized the evidence referenced in the police reports submitted to her. An excerpt from her report reads as follows:

“The information contained herein is distasteful and bizarre, to such a degree that one would choose to discredit it. However, research that I have done in this area has revealed that numerous cases of this type are surfacing around the country and in Canada. The similarities in the stories of each child victim used in these crimes tend to give credibility to the information revealed by others. Additionally, the psychiatrists and therapists who have been treating the victims state that the consistency of the stories and the explicit details revealed cause them to believe that these children are telling the truth. It is also the belief of each law enforcement officer who submitted information for this report that the victims are being truthful and that, in fact, children would be unable to make such stories up.

“During my research, similarities began surfacing which indicate the strong probability that there exists a network of people in this country involved in the sexual abuse and possible homicides of young children. These cases appear to differ from isolated cases of abuse towards children in that the crimes mentioned here have been committed with one common goal in mind – that of mutilating and murdering children for ritualistic or sacrificial purposes. Many of the cases reported also reveal the possibility of child pornography beyond the normal type of ‘kiddie porn’ in that these children are photographed during rituals with some members in robes or other garb and candles, snakes, swords, altars and other types of ritualistic material being used.”

Gallant had requested that the report be sent on to the chief of police for him to review and forward to the FBI. Following his review, however, the chief declined to submit the report. Gallant also tried to get the U.S. Department of Justice to review the paperwork, but she was - not surprisingly - rebuffed there as well.

As for the McMartin case, there has never been any question that the children there were horrifically abused. Though rarely noted in press reports, the jurors were clearly of the opinion that that was, in fact, the case. The hung juries and acquittals were the result of the jury members’ inability to identify the perpetrators of that abuse, which they attributed to the inept presentation of the prosecution’s case.

Another notable fact about the McMartin trials is that the defense was allowed to subject the child witnesses to the longest pretrial hearing in the nation’s history. Facing a battery of as many as seven rabid defense attorneys, the already severely traumatized children were verbally assaulted for weeks on end in a deliberate attempt to break them. The state made little effort to protect these young victims.

Also rarely noted in the reporting on the trials is that the matriarch of the family - Virginia McMartin - admitted on the stand that one of her own granddaughters believed that her children had been molested at the school. McMartin, by the way, had achieved semi-celebrity status in the childcare field. In the mid-1960s, she had traveled to New Zealand, Australia, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and England to visit preschools as a consultant.

In the final analysis, the logical conclusion to be drawn from the McMartin case is that 460 kids did not conspire to all lie about the abuse they suffered. They also did not likely lie about their involvement in child prostitution and child pornography. They certainly did not lie about the tunnels under the school.

They also did not lie about their forced involvement in satanic rituals, in which adults sheathed in black ceremonial robes uttered chants. In fact, at least one such robe was seized from the home of a defendant. And, perhaps most tragically, there is good reason to believe that they did not lie about the blood sacrifices either.

The Pedophocracy, Part V: It Couldn't Happen Here

Prosecutor Dan Casey: “Did you exercise any kind of mind control over your wife in order to get her to have sexual contact?”

Frank Fuster: “If I had that power, you think I would use it against … ? You know ... I don’t ... I have never. I’m a normal human being.”

On August 8, 1984, Bobby Dean stood on the front lawn of the Fuster home in the Country Walk housing development - a picture-perfect, planned community of relatively upscale suburban homes in Dade County, Florida. By all appearances, this was a small slice of paradise – an oasis untouched by the grim realities of American society.

On this day though, Dean had a loaded gun in his waistband and he fully intended to use it. He was there to finish the job that someone else had failed to complete on December 18 of 1980. On that day, an unidentified assailant had confronted Francisco Fuster Escalona (aka Frank Fuster) at his place of business and shot him once in the side of the head.

Fuster survived the attack, which he explained to the police as a botched robbery, though the officers thought it looked more like an attempted execution. Dean didn’t get the chance to make another attempt; police were on the scene in short order to arrest him.

Fuster himself surrendered to police two days later in response to the issuance of an arrest warrant. He had been under investigation following accusations by neighborhood parents that he and his wife, Iliana, had been brutally abusing their children while in the trusted care of the Fuster’s babysitting service – run out of their Country Walk home.

Fuster had, shall we say, rather questionable qualifications to run a day care center. On January 16, 1969, Fuster pumped two shots into the heart of a fellow motorist in New York City, killing him instantly. An off-duty police officer was, curiously enough, an eyewitness to the summary execution.

Even more curiously, Fuster chambered another round and pointed his gun directly at the armed officer – and yet wasn't shot. He was arrested though, and tried and convicted before the year was out. On Halloween day (needless to say, yet another occult holiday), he was sentenced to a ten year prison term. He was back on the streets in less than four, after which he received ‘psychiatric care.’

In November of 1982, he was convicted again – this time of a lewd assault on a nine-year-old girl. Despite being his second felony conviction, Fuster was sentenced to just two years probation. It was while on probation for the child molestation conviction that Fuster and his underage wife started up the babysitting service.

His probation officer apparently had no problem with this business venture, although it brought Fuster into unsupervised contact with at least fifty kids. At least thirty of them were horrifically abused. Fuster’s probation officer also had no problem with the fact that Frank had self-terminated his court-ordered psychiatric treatment in August of 1983.

No one really seems to have been too concerned about Fuster’s babysitting service, which - in addition to being run by a convicted child molester - was operating without proper licensing and in violation of local zoning laws. Commercial enterprises were expressly forbidden in the residential community.

Nevertheless, the service operated with the full knowledge of the entity managing the complex. In fact, Fuster’s service used the name Country Walk Babysitting Service, implying that his was an officially sanctioned service provided for the community.

The management company, Arvida, denied there were ever any official links to the Fuster operation after Frank's past and present activities were revealed. This, of course, was to be expected. Given that Arvida was a subsidiary of the Walt Disney Company, it wouldn't really do to be perceived as having connections to a child molestation operation.

The fact remains though that the company took no actions against Fuster for the illegal expropriation of the ‘Country Walk’ name or for violating zoning regulations. Dade County also took a hands-off approach to the Fuster business enterprise. Despite the fact that Frank lacked other required licenses, the convicted murderer was issued an occupational license to run the babysitting service.

Detective Donna Meznarich was the first police investigator sent to look into the allegations being made by the Country Walk parents. She was openly skeptical of the charges before she even knew what they actually were. The parents felt that she came calling with an unmistakable attitude of disbelief.

Nevertheless, enough evidence quickly emerged to issue an arrest warrant for Frank Fuster for probation violations. Considerably more evidence could have been gathered had police conducted a timely search of the Fuster home. Facing imminent arrest, Fuster was observed by his Country Walk neighbors hastily packing boxes into a white van.

Fearing the loss of valuable physical evidence, parents contacted the police – who failed to respond. The detective that disregarded the parents’ concerns that day was Donna Meznarich. She also executed the search warrant the next day, on a home largely - though not entirely - cleansed of incriminating evidence.

With Fuster safely in custody, the stories told by the child victims grew increasingly disturbing. They told of being forced to play “pee-pee” and “ca-ca” games. A photo would be produced at trial showing Fuster’s young son Jaime - one of the most severely abused of the victims - sitting in a bathroom smeared thickly with excrement.

The children also told of being forced to drink “magic punch,” later revealed by Fuster’s wife to be a mixture of Gatorade, urine, and various drugs. It would be revealed at trial that a close friend of the Fuster family owned a pharmacy, providing a reliable source for drugs. This friend was particularly close to Fuster’s mother and uncle.

The children also told of having their lives threatened repeatedly, and of having their parents’ lives threatened as well. They had been compelled to play a game, they said, called “who's gonna lose their head?” This game frequently ended with the ritual decapitation of an animal, typically a bird.

Finally, perhaps inevitably, the children claimed that they were frequently photographed and videotaped – while being sexually abused and during occult rituals. Fuster claimed to have never owned any video equipment, and none was found in the belated search of the Fuster home. Jaime Fuster though recalled seeing video equipment - as well as guns - being packed into the boxes being loaded into the van just before Fuster’s arrest.

Some investigators have speculated that Fuster was in the business of producing custom, made-to-order child pornography videos. He certainly lived quite well for a self-employed mini-blind installer. He had no problem coming up with the down payment for his Country Walk home, and had no fewer than six bank accounts. He was in the habit of making lump sum deposits of as much as $20,000.

Fuster apparently liked to screen home videos for the kids as well, one of which was said to be a snuff film that the children described as depicting two men butchering a woman in a bathtub and then eating her. Some of the kids also, strangely enough, spoke of being hypnotized by Iliana Fuster, who they said wore a ‘hypnotizer’ on a chain around her neck.

The trial of Frank Fuster had notable parallels to the McMartin prosecutions, though it differed in significant ways as well. The Country Walk parents who actively and vocally worked to see Fuster brought to justice were subjected to death threats by phone, obscene messages in the mail, and dead chickens left on their doorsteps – similar to the harassment suffered by their counterparts in Manhattan Beach.

Also like McMartin, the primary defense strategy was to bring in a hired-gun ‘expert’ of questionable qualifications to attempt to discredit the children’s testimony. The children had been brainwashed by the overzealous therapists, it was claimed, as these villainous therapists were crucified as being the true guilty parties in what was clearly a ‘witch hunt.’

The man originally scheduled to play this starring role for the defense was Ralph Underwager, at the time a prominent mouthpiece for a group calling itself VOCAL - Victims of Child Abuse Laws. As the name implies, this group was largely composed of indicted and/or convicted pedophiles. Underwager had been present at the birth of the organization.

The defense suffered a bit of a setback though when Underwager’s credentials as an ‘expert’ in the field of child development were revealed as being nonexistent at a pretrial deposition. He was quietly dropped by the defense and replaced with Lee Stewart Coleman, who also had close ties to VOCAL. Coleman had played a key role in the unsuccessful prosecution of the defendants in one of the McMartin-linked preschools.

Coleman did not succeed in his mission in the Country Walk case, however. Fuster was found guilty on all fourteen counts. One reason for this is that the children were protected from the abusive pretrial treatment afforded the McMartin kids. Additionally, the police and prosecutors - with some notable exceptions - seem to have actually made an effort to win the case.

Why was this prosecution not subverted as so many others were? That is difficult to say, though the answer may lie in the make-up of the parents seeking justice for their children; among them were a police sergeant, a police lieutenant, two former state prosecutors, a former chief assistant state attorney, and a gun-toting vigilante named Bobby Dean.

In the end, Frank Fuster - the man who appeared at his pretrial hearing in what was described as a “catatonic trance” - was sentenced to be imprisoned until the year 2150. Not even the Santeria priest who attended the trial with Fuster’s mother and uncle had the power to save him. And Arvida - which is to say, the Walt Disney Co. - paid $6 million to seven of his victims.

Even so, justice was not necessarily served. According to the victims, at least two other adults were involved in the abuse. The state knew the identity of at least one of them, but he was never charged with any crimes. Had he been, there’s no telling where the investigation might have led; his wife had once run a babysitting service.

With the heightened awareness of child abuse engendered by the high-profile Fuster case, a number of other cases emerged in the Miami area. In one, police inadvertently stumbled upon a collection of hundreds of photos of a convicted child pornographer engaged in sexual acts with young boys, and promptly arrested the man.

Two days after his release on bond, he was found in a Miami hotel room with a bullet hole in his head. His death was, naturally, ruled a suicide. This timely suicide preempted an investigation that could have, it seems reasonable to conclude, led to the elementary school that was directly across from his home/studio.

Another case that broke in the wake of Country Walk was that of Harold “Grant” Snowden, whose wife also had run a babysitting service. Dozens of kids had passed through her care over the course of a decade. It took two trials, but Snowden was ultimately convicted. In 1983, he had been named the South Miami Police Department’s "Officer of the Year." Stepping up to handle the appeal of his conviction was F. Lee Bailey, who in the late 1960s had represented a U.S. Air Force Captain in South Carolina accused of child molestation involving multiple victims.

Just a few years later, yet another case broke in the state of Florida. On February 7 of 1987, not long before the Franklin and the Spence cases broke, the Washington Post ran an interesting story that did not at the time seem to have any particular national significance. The article concerned a case of possible kidnapping and child abuse, and read in part as follows:

“Authorities investigating the alleged abuse of six children found with two men in a Tallahassee, Fla., park discovered material yesterday in the Washington area that they say points to a 1960's style commune called the Finders, described in a court document as a 'cult' that allegedly conducted 'brainwashing' and used children 'in rituals.'

“D.C. police, who searched a Northeast Washington warehouse linked to the group removed large plastic bags filled with color slides, photographs and photographic contact sheets. Some photos visible through a bag carried from the warehouse at 1307 Fourth St. NE were wallet-sized pictures of children, similar to school photos, and some were of naked children.

“D.C. police sources said some of the items seized yesterday showed pictures of children engaged in what appeared to be 'cult rituals.' Officials of the U.S. Customs Service, called in to aid in the investigation, said that the material seized yesterday includes photos showing children involved in bloodletting ceremonies of animals and one photograph of a child in chains.

“Customs officials said they were looking into whether a child pornography operation was being conducted ... Their links to the D.C. area have led authorities into a far-reaching investigation that includes the Finders - a group of about 40 people that court documents allege is led by a man named Marion Pettie - and their various homes, including the duplex apartment building in Glover Park, the Northeast Washington warehouse and a 90 acre farm in rural Madison County, Va. ...

“The children, identified in a court document only by the first names of Honeybee, John, Franklin, Bee Bee, Max and Mary, were described as 'dirty, unkempt, hungry, disturbed and agitated.' They had been living in the rear of the van for some time, the document said. Yesterday, police spokesman Hunt said one of the children, a 6 yr. old girl, 'showed signs of sexual abuse' ...

“Five of the children were uncommunicative, according to police, and none seemed to recognize objects such as typewriters and staplers. However, the oldest was able to give investigators some information. She said that the two men 'were their teachers,' according to Hunt ...

“Before their arrests in the park, [the two adult caretakers] had told police that they were teachers from Washington 'transporting these children to Mexico and a school for brilliant children,' according to Hunt. When police asked the men where the children's mothers were they said they were being weaned from their mothers.”

This was just one of many such stories that emerged across the country in the late 1980s, a phenomenon that would quickly be denounced as a ‘witch hunt’ and as a ‘satanic panic.’ It would be nearly seven years before the press would revisit this particular manifestation of what would come to be regarded as a modern-day case of mass hysteria.

It was the U.S. News and World Report that would ultimately provide the follow-up to the Finders story, but this was certainly not in the interest of shining any light on the earlier allegations. Most likely, the strange saga of the Finders would have disappeared forever if not for the rumors surrounding the case that just wouldn't seem to go away.

These rumors were addressed in the U.S. News report as follows: “One of the unresolved questions involves allegations that the Finders are somehow linked to the Central Intelligence Agency. Customs Service documents reveal that in 1987, when Customs agents sought to examine the evidence gathered by Washington, D.C. police, they were told that the Finders investigation 'had become an internal matter.'

“The police report on the case had been classified secret. Even now, Tallahassee police complain about the handling of the Finders investigation by D.C. police. 'They dropped this case,' one Tallahassee investigator says, 'like a hot rock.' D.C. police will not comment on the matter. As for the CIA, ranking officials describe allegations about links between the intelligence agency and the Finders as 'hogwash,' perhaps the result of a simple mix up with D.C. police. The only connection, according to the CIA: A firm that provided computer training to CIA officers also employed several members of the Finders.”

It should probably be noted here that the firm that supplied the training didn't just employ several members of the Finders but appears to have in fact been a wholly owned subsidiary of the Finders organization. It should also be noted that the CIA does not, as a general rule-of-thumb, assign the training of its officers to outside contractors. If a 'private' firm is utilized in such a capacity, it is in all such cases a front group of the CIA itself.

In the last paragraph of the U.S. News report, yet more intriguing connections to Langley are revealed. Speaking of group leader Marion Pettie, it is noted that “the CIA's interest in the Finders may stem from the fact that his late wife once worked for the agency and that his son worked for a CIA proprietary firm, Air America.” Aside from acknowledging these by then widely known (in Washington, at least) CIA connections, the U.S. News reporters did their very best to bury this story once and for all, denigrating the sordid allegations leveled against the group seven years earlier. The article reads as follows:

“The case is almost seven years old now, but matters surrounding a mysterious group known as the Finders keep growing curiouser and curiouser.

“In early February 1987, an anonymous tipster in Tallahassee, Fla, made a phone call to police. Two 'well dressed men' seemed to be 'supervising' six disheveled and hungry children in a local park, the caller said. The cops went after the case like bloodhounds, at least at first. The two men were identified as members of the Finders. They were charged with child abuse in Florida. In Washington, D.C. police and U.S. Customs Service agents raided a duplex apartment building and a warehouse connected to the group.

“Among the evidence seized – detailed instructions on obtaining children for unknown purposes and several photographs of nude children.

“According to a Customs Service memorandum obtained by U.S. News, one photo appeared 'to accent the child's genitals.' The more the police learned about the Finders, the more bizarre they seemed: There were suggestions of child abuse, Satanism, dealing in pornography and ritualistic animal slaughter.

“None of the allegations was ever proved, however. The child abuse charges against the two men in Tallahassee were dropped; all six of the children were eventually returned to their mothers, though in the case of two, conditions were attached by a court. In Washington, D.C. police began backing away from the Finders investigation. The group's practices, the police said, were eccentric - not illegal.”

The article closed by noting that “some of the rumors can last an awfully long time.” Indeed they can, though the rumors would have to circulate outside of the media, which has never again mentioned the case. This does not mean though that there is no additional information available on the subject. As the U.S. News noted in their report, there is a certain Customs Service memorandum that was written at the time of the original investigation.

As this document was in the hands of the News reporters at the time the story was written, as is readily acknowledged, it should logically follow that any pertinent information contained therein would have been faithfully reported. And as we know, the News concluded that “none of the allegations was ever proved.”

Still, it might be interesting to review the document to see what kind of "eccentric - not illegal" practices it was that the group was involved in. The memo is actually a series of memos written by Special Agent Ramon J. Martinez, United States Customs Service. In Martinez's own words, this is what he observed during his participation in the investigation:

“On Thursday, February 5, 1987, this office was contacted via telephone by Sergeant JoAnn VanMeter of the Tallahassee Police Department, Juvenile Division. Sgt. VanMeter requested assistance in identifying two adult males and six minor children ages 7 years to 2 years.

“The adult males were tentatively identified by TPD as Michael Houlihan and Douglas Ammerman, both of Washington, D.C. who were arrested the previous day on charges of child abuse.

“The police had received an anonymous telephone call relative two well-dressed white men wearing suits and ties in Myers Park, (Tallahassee), apparently watching six dirty and unkempt children in the playground area. Houlihan and Ammerman were near a 1980 Blue Dodge van bearing Virginia license number XHW-557, the inside of which was later described as foul-smelling, filled with maps, books, letters, with a mattress situated to the rear of the van which appeared as if it were used as a bed, and the overall appearance of the van gave the impression that all eight persons were living in it.

“The children were covered with insect bites, were very dirty, most of the children were not wearing underwear and all of the children had not been bathed in many days.

“The men were arrested and charged with multiple counts of child abuse and lodged in the Leon County Jail. Once in custody the men were somewhat evasive in their answers to the police regarding the children and stated only that they both were the children's teachers and that all were enroute to Mexico to establish a school for brilliant children ...

“U.S. Customs was contacted because the police officers involved suspected the adults of being involved in child pornography and knew the Customs Service to have a network of child pornography investigators, and of the existence of the Child Pornography and Protection Unit. SS/A Krietlow stated the two adults were well dressed white males. They had custody of six white children (boys and girls), ages three to six years. The children were observed to be poorly dressed, bruised, dirty, and behaving like wild animals in a public park in Tallahassee ... SS/A Krietlow was further advised the children were unaware of the function and purpose of telephones, televisions and toilets, and that the children had stated they were not allowed to live indoors and were only given food as a reward ...

“Upon contacting Detective Bradley, I learned that he had initiated an investigation on the two addresses provided by the Tallahassee Police Dept. during December of 1986. An informant had given him information regarding a cult, known as the ‘Finders’ operating various businesses out of a warehouse located at 1307 4th St., N.E., and were supposed to be housing children at 3918/3920 W St., N.W. The information was specific in describing 'blood rituals' and sexual orgies involving children, and an as yet unsolved murder in which the Finders may be involved. With the information provided by the informant, Detective Bradley was able to match some of the children in Tallahassee with names of children known or alleged to be in the custody of the Finders. Furthermore, Bradley was able to match the tentative ID of the adults with known members of the Finders. I stood by while Bradley consulted with AUSA Harry Benner and obtained search warrants for the two premises. I advised acting RAC SS/A Tim Halloran of my intention to accompany MPD on the execution of the warrants, received his permission, and was joined by SS/A Harrold. SS/A Harrold accompanied the team which went to 1307 4th St., and I went to 3918/20 W St.

“During the execution of the warrant at 3918/20 W St., I was able to observe and access the entire building ... There were several subjects on the premises. Only one was deemed to be connected with the Finders. [He] was located in a room equipped with several computers, printers, and numerous documents. Cursory examination of the documents revealed detailed instructions for obtaining children for unspecified purposes. The instructions included the impregnation of female members of the community known as the Finders, purchasing children, trading, and kidnapping. There were telex messages using MCI account numbers between a computer terminal believed to be located in the same room, and others located across the country and in foreign locations. One such telex specifically ordered the purchase of two children in Hong Kong to be arranged through a contact in the Chinese Embassy there. Another telex expressed interest in 'bank secrecy' situations. Other documents identified interests in high-tech transfers to the United Kingdom, numerous properties under the control of the Finders, a keen interest in terrorism, explosives, and the evasion of law enforcement. Also found in the 'computer room' was a detailed summary of the events surrounding the arrest and taking into custody of the two adults and six children in Tallahassee the previous night. There were also a set of instructions which appeared to be broadcast via a computer network which advised the participants to move 'the children' and keep them moving through different jurisdictions, and instructions on how to avoid police attention ...

“On Friday, 2/6/87, I met Detective Bradley at the warehouse on 4th Street, N.E. I duly advised my acting group supervisor, SS/A Don Bludworth. I was again granted unlimited access to the premises. I was able to observe numerous documents which described explicit sexual conduct between the members of the community known as Finders. I also saw a large collection of photographs of unidentified persons. Some of the photographs were nudes, believed to be of members of the Finders. There were numerous photos of children, some nude, at least one of which was a photo of a child 'on display' and appearing to accent the child's genitals. I was only able to examine a very small amount of the photos at this time. However, one of the officers presented me with a photo album for my review. The album contained a series of photos of adults and children dressed in white sheets participating in a 'blood ritual.' The ritual centered around the execution of at least two goats. The photos portrayed the execution, disembowelment, skinning and dismemberment of the goats at the hands of the children. This included the removal of the testes of a male goat, the discovery of a female goat's ‘womb’ and the ‘baby goats’ inside the womb, and the presentation of a goat's head to one of the children.

“Further inspection of the premises disclosed numerous files relating to activities of the organization in different parts of the world. Locations I observed are as follows: London, Germany, the Bahamas, Japan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Africa, Costa Rica, and 'Europe.' There was also a file identified as 'Palestinian.' Other files were identified by member name or 'project' name. The projects appearing to be operated for commercial purposes under front names for the Finders. There was one file entitled 'Pentagon Break-In,' and others referring to members operating in foreign countries. Not observed by me but related by an MPD officer were intelligence files on private families not related to the Finders. The process undertaken appears to be have been a systematic response to local newspaper advertisements for babysitters, tutors, etc. A member of the Finders would respond and gather as much information as possible about the habits, identity, occupation, etc., of the family. The use to which this information was to be put is still unknown. There was also a large amount of data collected on various child care organizations.

“The warehouse contained a large library, two kitchens, a sauna, hot-tub, and a 'video room.' The video room seemed to be set up as an indoctrination center. It also appeared that the organization had the capability to produce its own videos. There were what appeared to be training areas for children and what appeared to be an altar set up in a residential area of the warehouse. Many jars of urine and feces were located in this area.”

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that most people, upon reading this, will conclude that the practices of the Finders were not in fact merely “eccentric.” The last time I checked into it, running an international terrorist organization specializing in the trafficking of children was definitely illegal. Unless, that is, the organization doing the trafficking is run by the Central Intelligence Agency.

Group leader Marion Pettie shed additional light on his non-connections to the agency in an interview with Steamshovel Press in 1998. Recounting the history of his group, Pettie notes that: “Going back to World War II, I kept open house mainly to intelligence people in Washington. OSS people passing through, things like that.”

He wasn't, mind you, an intelligence asset himself. In fact, according to Pettie, he has spent his entire life trying - as a private citizen - to spy on the spies. As for his wife, he claims he sent her “in as a spy, to spy on the CIA for me. She was very happy about it, happy to tell me everything she found out. She was in a key place, you know with the records, and she could find out things for me." I guess Langley has been a little lax on the security lately.

Pettie also acknowledges that his “son worked for Air America, which was a proprietary of the CIA. There are some connections, but not to me personally.” Of course not. In fact, Pettie is something of a CIA watch-dog, proclaiming that he has “been studying them since before they were born.”

“I was studying them back in the 30's. It was ONI back then [Office of Naval Intelligence], and then the Coordinator of Information comes on, and after that it turns into the OSS and OSS turns into the CIAU and the CIAU turns into the CIA. So I've been studying that all of my life. But I wasn't personally working for them.”

Of course he wasn't. I have no idea where anyone would get a crazy notion like that. Interestingly enough though, this group which claimed no direct connection to the intelligence community quite obviously had very powerful people within that community protecting it. As the final Customs Service memo notes:

“On Thursday, February 5, 1987, Senior Special Agent Harrold and I assisted the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) with two search warrants involving the possible sexual exploitation of children. During the course of the search warrants, numerous documents were discovered which appeared to be concerned with international trafficking in children, high tech transfer to the United Kingdom, and international transfer of currency.

“On March 31, 1987, I contacted Detective Jim Bradley of the Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department (MPD). I was to meet with Detective Bradley to review the documents seized pursuant to two search warrants executed in January, 1987. The meeting was to take place on April 2 or 3, 1987.

“On April 2, 1987, I arrived at MPD at approximately 9:00 a.m. Detective Bradley was not available. I spoke to a third party who was willing to discuss the case with me on a strictly 'off the record' basis.

“I was advised that all the passport data had been turned over to the State Department for their investigation. The State Department in turn advised the MPD that all travel and use of the passports by the holders of the passports was within the law and no action would be taken. This included travel to Moscow, North Korea, and North Vietnam from the late 1950s to mid 1970s.

“The individual further advised me of circumstances which indicated that the investigation into the activity of the Finders had become a CIA internal matter. The MPD report has been classified SECRET and was not available for review. I was advised that the FBI had withdrawn from the investigation several weeks prior and that the FBI Foreign Counter Intelligence Division had directed MPD not to advise the FBI Washington Field Office of anything that had transpired.”

The initial arrest of the Finders in Tallahassee, Florida went almost completely unnoticed by the media. So too did another arrest in that same state in August of 2000, just before Florida gained newfound fame as the land of the 'hanging chads.' The arrested man was Wayne Camolli, and the charge was operating an on-line child pornography site.

The Los Angeles Times reported that the West Palm Beach home in which Camolli was arrested, not unlike the Finder’s van, “was filled with so much rotting garbage, trash and cat feces that the agents had to borrow oxygen masks and hazardous materials suits from the county fire department to carry out the search.” Seized in the raid were numerous videotapes and a computer.

The most significant aspect of the arrest is that it was initiated by police “investigating Belgium's most notorious pedophile murder case.” It seems that Camolli had close connections to “Felix DeConinck, a suspect in the kidnapping and molestation of a 14-year-old girl ... [and] DeConinck in turn had links to Marc Dutroux.” And so we end up right back where we began, with the case of the ‘Belgian Beast.’

The brief Times report closed by stating that: “U.S. officials couldn't elaborate on the connection between DeConinck and Dutroux, but said they were part of the same ‘child pornography, molestation and murder investigation.’” It is unlikely that the press will ever revisit the case of Wayne Camolli (tellingly, the L.A. Times article has disappeared from the newspaper's on-line archives).

As with so many other cases, the final words of the Customs memorandum on the Finders investigation will likely provide the epitaph for this case as well: “No further information will be available. No further action will be taken.”

As a final note, it appears that there may be a hidden agenda behind the recent appearance of a crackdown on internet-based child pornography rings. The Guardian reported in January of 2001 that Interpol “has agreed to set up an electronic library of child sex victims at its headquarters in Lyon, France.” The first images to be processed into that database are 750,000 photos seized by British authorities in the Wonderland raids.

While this could represent a sincere effort by law enforcement personnel to gather evidence against the rings, there could also be a much more sinister goal. As the 2001 Super Bowl made clear, we are now living in an age when electronic ‘facial recognition systems’ are being put to widespread use, meaning that the images of the children stored in Interpol’s computers can soon be positively identified.

Could it be that the database being compiled will be utilized as something of a recruitment list to identify those persons who have been ‘preconditioned’ - so to speak - for future mind control operations? It’s certainly not beyond the realm of possibility. Interpol has, after all, been exposed as an illegal organization with distinctively Nazi roots.

Researcher Arlene Tyner has spent a considerable amount of time interviewing and corresponding with victims of mind control operations. In Probe magazine, she wrote that some of them “were turned over to military/CIA doctors by pedophile fathers or other sexually abusive relatives. CIA officials also blackmailed family members known to produce ‘kiddie porn’ in order to gain control of their already abused and psychologically fragmented children.”

One thing is for certain though. Some day, many of the thousands of victims of the child pornography rings will come forward to tell harrowing stories of their early childhood abuse. They will tell of acts of depravity committed against children that are almost beyond human comprehension – and yet their stories will be documented by the images on Interpol’s computers.

But how many of them will be believed?

MAKO was Founded in 1997 and is an Australian Non profit Organisation. Our mission is to help PREVENT and ASSIST victims of child sexual abuse (any form of child abuse) and other sex crime in Australia.

PREVENTION MUST BE THE PRIORITY
In Australia the general Public are NOT provided with access to Sex Offender Registries by the Federal or State government/s.. Most of you would agree with us that jail is the best place for convicted sex offenders..the FACT is that many live in "unsuspecting communities" including near schools/ playgrounds etc.

NEEDED IN AUSTRALIA
# Mandatory Lengthy Sentencing for convicted Paedophiles/ Sex Offenders/ Child Killers.
     Lengthy jail terms will greatly assist prevention and deterrents are Warranted.

# National/State Public Sex Offender Registries.
     Many thousands of convicted Paedophiles/Sex Offenders/ Child Killers "already" live in "unsuspecting" Australian communities, including near schools/ playgrounds etc... and they are likely to RE-OFFEND...
The State/ Federal government/s should be providing YOU with access to sex offender registries, letting you know, who and where they are.

# Community Sex Offender Notification.
     You should be notified if a convicted sexual offender is residing in or moves into your neighborhood/community.
Since 1997 MAKO members have notified over 70 Australian communities 'via flyers in letterboxes' of convicted paedophiles/ sex offenders living secretly amongst them.

Its no secret that sex offenders especially paedophiles are likely to re/offend so Public AWARENESS is very IMPORTANT to PREVENTION.
Zero tolerance for paedophiles/ sex offenders/ child killers- Prevention must be the Priority

‘Anonymous’ Forces 40+ Child Pornography Sites Offline

Anonymous has turned its attentions from corporations to pedophiles with the news that the hacktivist group has taken down multiple child pornography sites, including one of the largest known, with account details of its 1589 users being posted online as evidence.
The incident was just part of something Anonymous is calling “Operation Darknet,” a move by the group to eliminate child pornography on the Tor network. Tor, which was originally developed as a way of protecting government communications by the U.S. Navy, now describes itself as “a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet.” But the privacy and anonymity it offers has been abused by child pornographers, something that Anonymous aims to correct with its new campaign.
In its statement about the takedown, Anonymous says that the group “identified [hosting service] Freedom Hosting as the host of the largest collection of child pornography on the internet,” adding “By taking down Freedom Hosting, we are eliminating 40+ child pornography websites, among these is Lolita City, one of the largest child pornography websites to date containing more than 100GB of child pornography. We will continue to not only crash Freedom Hosting’s server, but any other server we find to contain, promote, or support child pornography.”

The group’s statement ends with the following demands:
“Remove all child pornography content from your servers. Refuse to provide hosting services to any website dealing with child pornography. This statement is not just aimed at Freedom Hosting, but everyone on the internet. It does not matter who you are, if we find you to be hosting, promoting, or supporting child pornography, you will become a target.”

TASMANIA is becoming a paradise for paedophiles and needs to toughen its stance on sex crime fast, victim support advocates warn.

Beyond Abuse founder Steve Fisher says the state is a place where predators either get away with sexual abuse or at worst face ludicrously short jail terms and the word is spreading.

"There's no doubt paedophiles interstate and even overseas are becoming increasingly attracted to Tasmania due to our outdated approach to dealing with sexual offending," Mr Fisher said.

"Tasmania is at risk of being known as a paedophile's paradise."

Beyond Abuse has joined forces with Survivors Australia to seek reform in the sentencing of sex offenders in light of former MP Terry Martin's wholly suspended jail term handed down last week.

Martin had been convicted of producing child exploitation material and having underage sex with a 12-year-old girl who was being prostituted in late 2009.

But Mr Fisher says Martin is not the only public figure guilty of sex crimes.

He says there are other high-profile Tasmanians who are sexually abusing children but their power and associates mean they are considered "untouchable" in this state.

"I wish I could say who was involved, but I can't," Mr Fisher said.

"I will say the community would be shocked."

Survivors Australia Tasmanian coordinator Melissa Johns said the Martin case had led to an outpouring of letters, visits, phone calls and emails to the organisation's offices across the country with many expressing disbelief at Martin's sentence.

"These judges have the ability to jail someone for 14 years for sexual assault crimes but over the past 10 years the average sentence handed down in Tasmania has been just 48 months," she said.

Sexual Assault Support Service chief executive Liz Little chaired the state's last review of the response to adult sexual assault victims in 1995.

"In the past 10 years, every other state and territory except Tasmania and the Northern Territory has conducted a review of ways to better respond to these victims and implement more effective legal mechanisms," Ms Little said.

"We are way behind and it's an embarrassment to this state."

She said conviction rates were dropping and victims were clear that the legal process was not working.

"The courts are handling these cases in the same way they always have, and no one's looking at the bigger picture, such as who are the offenders . . A review is long overdue."

Attorney-General Brian Wightman has said he would ask the Sentencing Advisory Council to look at sentencing provisions for sexual offences at a meeting this month.

NSW Family and Community Services's picture

At the end of the day no one is going to tell me that this is not crimes against humanity, at some point in time someone must stand up and let people know that it is not ok to have sex with children. Their is an age of consent. There are laws.

A great amount of police work goes into catching a paedophile, however more goes into having the courage to stand up to having been victimised and belittled. The personal battle is to not commit suicide that is why child victims are called surviviors.

If we want survivors to become people who can thrive - thrivers - then there must be a co ordinated response to the victimisation and abuse that has been suffered. To me that means the victims get to see justice.

Justice comes in many forms and is only a way to percieve that someone has acknowledged and believed at victim. It does not remove the symptoms a person suffers but it may relieve some of the thoughts around "not being listened to". It may be even the difference between life and death. It is after all about the most primal of instincts - survival.

On 12 November, 2012, Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced that she would be recommending the creation of what is now the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. Days later, on 21 December 2012, I posted the following letter to the NSW Police Integrity Commission:

Dear PIC,

I am writing to report corruption within the NSW Police Force. I allege that certain NSW police at [local] stations have collaborated with the widespread paedophile ring that victimised me as a child, in an effort to discredit me and to sabotage my efforts to report the serious crimes that I witnessed.

In 2008, following the reporting of articles such as ‘Chanting, spells and sex orgies at St Stanislaus College’ (Herald Sun, August 27, 2008) I contacted the detective in charge of the St. Stanislaus investigation. I told the detective about similar crimes I had witnessed in Bathurst when I was 15 years old. I reported that I had witnessed the criminal actions of a paedophile ring whose members included [a Police Commissioner]. Evidence that I made this report is contained within my [AHPRA] case file.

I calculated the date of this Bathurst gathering to be 6th October 1985. The gathering took place during the famous Bathurst 1000 car race. The mass of car race spectators served to disguise the paedophile ring members who filled the Bathurst City Hall including the balcony. These perpetrators included numerous Catholic priests from St. Stanislaus College in Bathurst, and from Sydney. A small band of leaders stood on the small black stage out front. The leaders were former Australian [sporting legend], Kim Edward Beazley Snr (education minister in Gough Whitlam’s cabinet) [deceased], [a university lecturer], [a Police Commissioner], and [a B-grade film actor]. Ten years ago, I met a young man who carpeted [actor’s] house, and he told me that [actor] had photos of child pornography stuck all over his lounge room walls). [Actor] raped me on stage in front of the crowd. Then I witnessed them murder a heavily pregnant slim-built young woman who had a dark bowl-bobbed hairstyle. Then I witnessed the paedophile ring rape and murder a group of children.

Prior to my providing this information to the Bathurst Police, and unbeknownst to me, another victim of this same paedophile ring named Tor Nielsen had provided similar information to the same NSW Police. Tor had reported witnessing 60 children being abused and himself raped in the very same Bathurst City Hall that I mentioned. Tor noted that St. Stanislaus College has accommodated the NSW Police during the Bathurst car races for many decades. (Please see below email from Tor Nielsen.)

The detective in charge of the Bathurst investigation instructed me to make a formal statement about these witnessed crimes, at [local] police station. I attempted to do this, but [local] police refused to take my statement. Instead, the [local] police officers mocked me.

NSW Police never took a comprehensive, formal, or signed statement from me. Despite this fact, in a letter (dated 29/3/10) the Australian Health Practitioners Regulatory Authority (AHPRA) told me that they had formed the opinion that I was an adult perpetrator of the experiences that I reported in 2008 to NSW Police, instead of a child victim. AHPRA used emails and phone discussions exchanged between NSW and [local] police officers as evidence of that view. These emails are contained within my [AHPRA] case file.

An email sent from [local] Police to AHPRA (dated 26/11/10) states: ‘The last briefing I had was that contact had been made with NSWPOL and they could not identify and outstanding jobs that would match the claims made. They also informed us that the suspect had previously made outlandish claims of a similar nature. The investigation is ongoing but given the above I would suspect it will not be a police matter.’

An email from [local] Police to AHPRA (dated 27/11/10) states: ‘At this stage we are unable to find any evidence to what Ms [GARDINER] is saying. Ms [GARDINER] has previously made similar admissions to NSW police in 2008, this investigation was finalised as no evidence could be located to substantiate what MS [GARDINER] has stated.’

In their 29/3/10 letter, AHPRA wrote: ‘confirmation of similar reported events by the NSW Police Service regarding past criminal activities of a serious nature is a matter that the Board will need to address.’

I would like the PIC to investigate and explain to me:

What did NSW Police say to give AHPRA the impression that I was an adult perpetrator instead of a child victim of criminal activities?
On what basis have I been labelled a ‘suspect’?
What did NSW police investigate in relation to what I told them?
Under what name did NSW police search for me at Sutherland Hospital, considering I was never admitted, and that the hospital was never supplied with my real identity?
How did police simultaneously label my witness testimony ‘outlandish’ but use it as the basis for calling me a ‘suspect’ and claiming that I have been involved in ‘criminal activities of a serious nature’?
Despite having Tor Nielsen’s collaborative witness testimony prior to my contacting them, NSW police dismissed my testimony as ‘outlandish.’ I would like the PIC to investigate and explain to me:

How did NSW Police draw the conclusion that my testimony was outlandish considering an independent witness, Tor Nielsen, had reported the same thing?
How did NSW Police draw the conclusion that my testimony was outlandish considering I had not been given the opportunity to make a formal comprehensive statement?
Please tell me on what grounds NSW police should dismiss my testimony as outlandish, considering the following documented Australian crimes, all but one committed in NSW:

MPs and police ‘in child sex network,’ reported in The Australian (9 July, 2004).
Priest did ‘ritual killing,’ The Courier Mail (May 26, 2006).
Gang rape and murder of Anita Cobby whose perpetrators had sex with knife wounds they made in the victim’s body.
NSW University surgery lab losing its licence in 2005 after staff were caught having sex with decapitated cadaver heads.
Convicted serial paedophiles from Engadine Boystown, Paul Barrett and Paul Evans, the former case involving a female teacher having sex with a student.
Serial killings of Ivan Milat.
Perhaps the main objection to my testimony is the notion that my perpetrators were so organised and widespread. If so, consider the words of South Australian Parliamentary Speaker of the House on 1st and 4th April, 2005:

‘There are a large number…of people in high places and positions of trust who take it for granted that they can indulge their sexual appetites for children of both sexes so long as they arrange to cover it up and get away with it…It’s a national problem and MPs involved seem to know each other.’

‘The most outrageous thing of all…is…what appears to be the related and organised activities of those paedophiles in high public office – that is, the judiciary, the senior ranks of human services portfolios, some police, and MPs, across the nation, especially within the ranks of the Labour Party.’

The accusation that I am a criminal was instigated by staff at [a University]. In 2010, while working as [a psychology student] in the [University] clinic, one of my child clients and her foster mother made fresh allegations of paedophile ring activities within [local DOCS]. The information they gave me tied in with the same paedophile ring which had been busted in around 2000. My [University] supervisor forbade me from reporting these crimes to the police; however, I was permitted to contact the Children’s Commissioner. [The University] then immediately withdrew my complaint to the Commissioner, and they lied to the Children’s Commissioner by saying that this decision to withdraw my complaint had been made in consultation with me. I wrote to the Children’s Commissioner denying this lie. I subsequently came under fire from [University] staff who I believe are members of a paedophile ring.

My allegations two years ago that [University] staff did indeed protect paedophiles because they themselves are perpetrators was recently partially vindicated when the university’s most celebrated [Professor of psychology], was charged with 6 counts of child sexual abuse against two children under the age of 12 years. [Professor] wrote articles which [the University] published, about how child sexual abuse should be renamed “Greek love”, about how victims are usually always consenting, and how child victims benefit from being sexually abused by adults.

[University] staff whom I and other students accused of being sex offenders (they sexually harassed/assaulted me and other students), attempted to discredit me as a criminal and/or psychotic when I have no criminal history and no history/symptoms of psychosis. (I actually worked as a parole officer in two states.) [The University] paedophiles gained information about my childhood abuse history during private parties at which they served alcohol to students and instigated sexual and personal disclosure games in their homes. Then they removed the age I was at the time I witnessed the crimes in Sydney so that I appeared to be a perpetrator instead of a victim of these crimes. They then reported these ‘crimes’ to the [local] police who labelled me a ‘suspect.’

Further, without even seeing me or consulting my current supervisors [including a Barrister and APS Chair] who subsequently provided written confirmation of my stable mental health, [University] staff lied to AHPRA and the [Psychology Board] administrators by saying that I had suddenly become psychotic. AHPRA/Psychology Board staff then engaged in multiple breaches of state and federal legislation in their victimisation of me and their collaboration with [University] paedophiles. AHPRA/Psychology Board ordered me for a health assessment with a government psychiatrist. I refused after I was warned that this doctor was “a creep” whom AHPRA were employing to “stitch me up.” AHPRA/Psychology Board eventually stated that they would accept a health assessment from a psychiatrist of my choice, which I did. A comprehensive assessment by [one of Australia’s leading psychiatrists] states that I have no mental health condition. Yet then AHPRA/Board staff contradicted their earlier statement and refused to accept this report.

I subsequently complained to the police minister [locally] and in NSW. The NSW Police minister denied that the NSW police had provided [local] Police or AHPRA with any information about me or what I reported to the NSW Police in 2008. This denial contradicts emails contained within my FOI released AHPRA case file. The [local] Police minister also stated that they could find no evidence to substantiate what AHPRA/Psychology Board staff had written in my file and upon which they had based their decision to strip me of my psychology registration and take action against me. Despite all of this, AHPRA/Psychology Board simultaneously treated the false allegations by [the University] paedophiles as both real (evidence of my alleged criminality) and as fiction (the product of my alleged sudden psychosis).

I am not insane, and I am not a criminal. I do have a history of whistle-blowing against paedophile rings and corruption. Owing to my extensive experience of these criminals, I quickly recognise other perpetrators and their behaviour patterns. It is easy to understand, therefore, why I pose a threat to their operation, and why they would want to remove this threat.

My every attempt at reporting crimes perpetrated by paedophile ring members and those whom they employ to harass /deter our family have resulted in further incidents of victimisation from paedophile ring members and collaborators, including some NSW police. For example, two perpetrators inserted a hypodermic needle in my daughter’s forehead. My pets were killed and their rotting corpses thrown over our fence over a two week period. The RSPCA responded to a false report that we were neglecting our dog. Our dog was dragged beneath our side fence and killed. Police repeatedly drove slowly by my home. I was given a parking ticket for something I did not do, and which my child’s teacher made a witness statement against. Our telephone company informed us in writing that our phone had been tapped. Police responded to a false report that our garage housed a stolen vehicle. A Workcover health and safety inspector responded to a false report that our builder was using a ramset gun unlicensed.

Finally, NSW Police dispatched three fully armed swot teams to break down the doors of my home plus two relatives’ homes. One unit followed my accountant husband who rode in a taxi to [the] airport where he was due to fly with his new boss to _____. Police pulled the taxi over, ordered my husband out of the car, ordered him face down on the side of the highway, cuffed him, and held three loaded semi-automatic weapons to his head. Those weapon triggers are light and my family have been left to live with the psychological and physical consequences of realising that that a slight mistake could have resulted in my husband being shot in the head at point blank range. The incident triggered my husband’s heart condition, while I subsequently suffered a heart attack and a stroke in my late 30s (I have no family history of such).

There is no excuse for ambushing my family with swot teams. This ambush immediately followed my exposing the front man for the [Regional] paedophile ring, [a school teacher], whom the NSW Education Department subsequently found guilty of molesting children. This ambush immediately followed my family complaining about the criminal antics of ex-military trained IRA assassin, bikie gang member, and associate of certain [local] police, [Mr. IRA]. Immediately after my husband and mother attended an interview with [local Superintendant] (during which they complained about [Mr IRA’s] escalating harassment and his threats to shoot us all), [the Superintendant] dispatched three swot teams against my family based on a false report by [Mr. IRA] that a gunman took a sawn-off shotgun to [Mr. IRA] and then fled inside my house. Police then mistreated my husband as the alleged gunman.

I would like the PIC to investigate and explain how my husband ended up with three NSW Police semi-automatic loaded weapons to his head on the side of a highway?

The NSW police victimisation and harassment has never ceased. This year, on two separate occasions, my family and a friend observed a police car park outside our home for an extended period of time. On each occasion, upon departure, the driver waved to one of two neighbours. We live on a corner block. The second car waved to the neighbour who lives behind us and who is a [police officer] in charge of [a local station]. The first driver waved to the man who lives beside us; this man one morning suddenly and without provocation attacked my brother whom he had never previously met. He surprised my brother by grabbing him by the throat and slamming him up against my brother’s work vehicle. When I complained about this and many other incidents to [local] police, they refused to assist.

Six months ago, immediately following further complaints to [local] police about escalating harassment by the neighbour/paedophile ring collaborator who assaulted my brother, a petite blonde officer from [the local] police station turned up at my house armed, grasping her handcuffs, and threatening to arrest me over a false allegation that I damaged a trailer that some stranger had allegedly parked on my front lawn. The accompanying male officer apologised to my mother for turning up at my home. The female officer said that a trailer had been parked exactly where her police car was now parked. [The local] Council confirmed that it is illegal and a fineable offence for anyone to park a car or trailer in the said location; yet the female officer was not concerned with this fact. Instead she hissed at my mother, ‘Where is she!’

This female officer is the same one who in 2006 verbally abused me and called me a “trouble maker” reporting that a 14-year-old child was seen driving over 100km per hour down the local highway, and she called me a “stalker” for photographing this same child backing his father’s car into mine. I was informed that this same officer was in a lesbian affair with the daughter of [previous Superintendant/Area Commander]. I was informed that [previous Superintendant] lost his job in 2006 due to my whistle-blowing efforts against a related [Shire] paedophile ring that involved [a teacher]. (The NSW Education Department subsequently determined that [the teacher] had sexually abused children.) I was informed that [a detective] whom I accused of sabotaging the [school teacher] case was demoted to [outback NSW], 200 houses raided, and several police were charged, as a result of my whistle-blowing efforts.

I am concerned that certain [local] police hold a grudge against me due to my whistle-blowing efforts that reportedly led to the demise of some of their colleagues, and that they will continue to act on this grudge. I am also concerned that male and female members of the paedophile ring remain employed [locally].

Other reasons for my feeling uncomfortable about dealing with NSW Police include the way I was treated by [Detective Chief Inspector] of the NSW Sex Crimes Squad. [Detective Chief Inspector] bullied witnessed and verbally abused me for exposing the [Regional] paedophile ring. The NSW Education Department vindicated my efforts when they banned [the teacher] from teaching due to his abuse of children. My complaint against [Detective Chief Inspector] resulted in the letter of apology from [Detective Superintendant]. [Detective Superintendant] pressured me to disclose all I knew about any paedophile ring activities, at threat of being charged with the offence of concealing a crime. However, NSW police have simultaneously thwarted my efforts to report these crimes.

It is my continual experience that victims and witnessed are threatened into reporting all they know about paedophile ring activities, but that the police never actually do anything with the given information which serves the victims or which bring the perpetrators to justice. It can be deduced therefore that the sole purpose of gathering such information from witnesses is to control the information, silence the witnesses, and support the ongoing criminal activities of the paedophile rings. This is exactly what happened in the [regional paedophile ring] case, in my case, and in Tor Nielsen’s case.

I would like the PIC to ensure that I am no longer victimised by corrupt NSW Police. I would also like the PIC to ensure that NSW Police do not act upon false allegations against me made by individuals acting for the paedophile ring. I request that corrupt police refrain from attempts to discredit me. I request that any future NSW Police treatment and questioning of me is done in a manner that reflects the facts that I am not insane and that I am not a criminal. I would like the PIC to assist me in making a formal statement to NSW Police about the serious crimes of child abduction, rape, and murder that I witnessed from age 5 to 15.

I am prepared to make a statement to [a Taskforce]. I recently approached [a Detective Senior Constable of the Taskforce]. [This Constable] agreed to help me compose a statement which he said he would then pass on to the appropriate NSW Police unit. He did mention Engadine police being a possible recipient of my statement; however, considering an Engadine police officer is one of my alleged perpetrators, I feel this to be inappropriate.

Who is in charge of the Engadine Boystown investigation? What task force has been assigned to the investigation? I believe that such an investigation should be publicised, to encourage other victims to come forward. Covert operations achieve nothing, as the St. Stanislaus case proves. Enclosed is an email from Tor Nielsen, the victim whose whistle-blowing efforts instigated the St. Stanislaus convictions. According to Tor, NSW Police dropped his case for no valid reason and victimised him for whistle-blowing. This is the same pattern of mistreatment that I have experienced. Tor and I accuse the same paedophile ring of collaborating with NSW Police.

I would like to provide NSW Police my witness to the following crimes. I would like the NSW Police investigating Engadine Boystown to possess the following information. While I do not believe that my testimony will result in any arrests, I do believe that it may assist honest police who are working on the case to have a better understanding of the elite paedophile ring that connects Engadine Boystown with Bathurst and greater NSW.

The elite paedophile ring involved the following people:

Numerous Catholic priests from the Sutherland Shire, including Engadine Boystown, a second Catholic church that existed east of the Engadine train station, and Regina Coli Catholic church at Beverly Hills.
Engadine police officer (and his wife)
[University lecturer].
[Engadine GP].
Man residing at 12 McAlister Ave Engadine until 1995.
[Famous stage actor].
[psychologist/biochemist/university lecturer].
A Serbian psychology student at [University] who has since Anglicised her name.
[Registered nurse and husband, resided at Miranda).
I was introduced to the paedophile ring by my paternal grandmother Helen Holowczak, and my step-grandfather Peter (Poitre) Holowczak. I was 15 when I discovered that Poitre was not my biological grandfather. Helen was a Lithuanian woman who collaborated with the Gestapo during WWII but later escaped the Russians by hiding in a German camp. Helen’s father served two years hard labour in Siberia for refusing to disclose his daughter’s whereabouts. Poitre Holowczak was hiding in the same German camp as Helen, seeking immigration to Canada. Poitre’s plans were thwarted after Helen convinced the authorities that he was her husband and was the father of the young child in her care, [Holowczak], my father. Thus Helen and Poitre joined the great wave of Eastern European war criminals that were offered asylum in Australia.

A 1951 marriage certificate indicates that Helen and Poitre were married in Bathurst. From age three until 11 years, I spent countless weekends and school holidays at their house at 14 McAlister Ave Engadine. When I was age 12, my family moved to northern NSW. Thereafter, I occasionally visited my grandparents during school holidays. During these stays, Poitre would entertain me with stories about the ‘olden days’ in Poland when he killed Jews for a living in a death camp. A clue to the location of the camp was fixed to the front of Helen and Poitre’s Engadine house. It was a sign ‘LUBLIN’ painted in a quaint folk art style.

Poitre owned a Doberman dog that he commanded in German. The dog had a thick black leather collar around its neck, with the name ‘SATAN’ stamped on it in capital letters. A favourite game of Poitre’s was to make me run and hide, and then he would set the dog onto me. I had to hide well enough out of the dog’s reach, or else it would do to me as the Nazis trained their dogs to do to the Jewish women. Another favourite game involved Poitre locking me in an old refrigerator that he kept in his garage, the type that could only be opened from the outside. Poitre would throw cockroaches and other insects on me, close the door, and laugh.

On other occasions, Poitre would threaten to crush my fingers in an old fashioned washing machine mangle. I was eight years old when I threatened to tell my mother about his constant sexual and physical abuse. In response, he filled his concrete laundry tub with water, stood me on a wooden crate before the basin, grabbed my head by the hair, and shoved my head underwater. He held my head under until I could barely breath, then ripped it up again and hissed, ‘This is what will happen to you if you tell…’ and he plunged my head back under. He did this over and over and over, until I passed out.

Helen and Poitre often took me to socialise with, and be abused by, members of their European community. This community comprised a large number of Nazi war criminals who settled in an area south of Sydney which ran from the Sutherland Shire to Woollongong. They carried Slavic, Germanic, or Anglicised versions of their former surnames. These people worked together, orgied together, and practised the religion that underpinned Nazism together - just as they had done back in Europe. Their offspring were raised as victims of their paedophile ring, and some went on to become perpetrators themselves.

These people considered paedophilia to be part of their Nazi religion. Their religion was an offshoot of Mithraism, the same religion which Roman Catholicism stems from, and which involves male child brides ‘marrying’ adult males. They referred to child sodomy as the ‘fountain of youth.’ Many members of this elite ring were sexually aroused by necrophilia, bestiality, and murder.

While the Catholic priests generally preferred to rape the boy victims, I was regularly raped by my step-grandfather from preschool age until age 13. From ages 13 to 15, I was regularly raped by [Engadine GP] and by his female lover [Engadine policeman’s wife]. I was raped at age 6 by a paedophile named Steven, and at age 15 by paedophile [B-grade actor].

The paedophile ring had a banner that was raised during large gatherings in the Catholic churches in Engadine and Beverly Hills, and in the Bathurst City Hall. The banner was rectangular, purple, and made of satin. The banner bore a large encircled hexagram. An eagle was spread over the star, its head locked to its right. Each of the bird’s wings and claws fit perfectly into one of the star’s points. The following symbols sat in the banner corners: [Note: picture of banner available in 'Images' section of this site.]

1. Top left = a serpent entwined around a pole.

2. Top right = a trident.

3. Bottom left = a triangle divided into three triangles.

4. Bottom right = a circle dissected by a vertical line that began in its middle and exited its base. Like a translucent lollipop.

I witnessed these people commit multiple abductions, sexual assaults, and murders of mostly children and some adults. The first murder I witnessed occurred when I was age 5. It happened in the front lounge room of 12 McAlister Ave. It was perpetrated by Poitre Holowczak and the owner of the house next door. He was tall with light brown curly hair. The victim was a 3-year-old blonde boy.

The next murder occurred when I was 6 years old. I witnessed a girl of approximately 12 years of age hanged to death on the rocky bank of the Weir, a damned swimming hole that once existed in the National Park just west of Engadine. The men took turns at raping the girl’s dead body while the others masturbated in a circle. The child was slim and wore a dark brown side ponytail. She was dressed in a red t-shirt and white shorts. The girl was picked up as she walked along a major road.

In 1984/5, I witnessed the red-headed police officer’s partner lure a 15-year-old boy into her car at a south Sydney beach, probably Cronulla. The boy had sandy coloured hair, and he was dressed in board shorts and a pale blue t-shirt which had the distinct ‘Billabong’ wave logo on its left breast. The boy was murdered at a property on Illawarra Road near the suburb of Menai. His remains were fed to the pack of starving Doberman dogs that were bred and trained at this property. The dog trainer had leathery skin, dark hair, piercing eyes, and there were many signs out front his property warning people not to trespass.

At Kiama, amidst hilly ocean side national parkland, I witnessed children being hunted for sport. It was 28 October, 1975, my sixth birthday. I wore a long red dress that my mother recently gave me along with a small electric piano. After celebrating my birthday at home, Helen took me back to her place to stay. Late that afternoon, Helen took me to a birthday party set up at a picnic table in the Kiama rainforest. The party was attended by children. The cordial was spiked with drugs and so I fell asleep. When I awoke it was dark and I was naked, lying face-up spread-eagle on the picnic table with my hands and legs tied. Perpetrators took turns at sneaking up on me, emerging from the dark and whispering indecipherable things to me. Later, a large group of men arrived in pick up trucks. They were dressed in flannel shirts, carried rifles, and had a pack of starving Doberman dogs that belonged to the man who lived on Illawarra Road near the suburb of Menai. A group of naked children huddled nearby. I was told that the children were my responsibility. I was told that I would be given a head start, that I was to run and hide the children, and that every child that I failed to hide would be killed and fed to the dogs. They painted something on my back and chest, and then released me and the other children. I raced the children up over the first steep hill. It was about the second or third hill that the hunting party reached us. Shots were fired, and children began dropping all around me. When all hope of my saving the others seemed lost, I took off and ran for my life.

It was [the Engadine GP] who drove me and a 15 year old blonde boy named Thomas to the paedophile ring gathering in Bathurst, north-west of Sydney.

My worst memory was of what my perpetrators called a ‘re-birthing ceremony’ that occurred at the disused Garrawarra Cemetery which once served the Waterfall Consumptive Hospital. When I was eight years old, Helen and [Engadine GP] lowered me into an old concrete crypt, atop what they called a ‘ghoul’, a rotting skeleton that my perpetrators told me would come back to life. They closed the lid and I screamed until the oxygen was depleted. I passed out. I eventually awoke in the Sutherland Hospital, on a metal table in the midst of a small room within the ER. The room walls were clad from floor to ceiling in blue tiles. An oxygen mask covered my mouth. Three people dressed in shower hats were silhouetted against a blinding overhead light. ‘We nearly lost you,’ cooed one nice nurse. Then she told me that my mother was present. I shot a glance at the woman in the doorway to the right of my feet. It was the [Engadine policeman’s] wife. The [Engadine GP] lied to the hospital staff about my identity, and he somehow convinced the hospital staff to immediately release me to him and my pretend-mother.

The failed Wood Royal Commission’s conclusion that an informant against such a paedophile ring would voluntarily step forward is ridiculous. As with the mafia, membership of this paedophile ring is a life-long commitment. At six years of age, deep in the national park, I witnessed a ‘traitor’ who tried to leave the ring have each of his limbs tied to a separate vehicle. Each vehicle then accelerated in opposite directions. I wasn’t keen to talk after that.

As for Wood’s assertion that there would be victim’s bodies as evidence of such activities, in my experience there were no bodies to find. Human remains were usually fed to the starving pack of Doberman dogs on Illawarra Road near the suburb of Menai. Other victims were burnt in the Caltex factory ovens in the Sutherland Shire suburb of Kurnell.

As for Wood’s suggestion of missing person’s reports - who is going to report a person who doesn’t exist? I witnessed paedophile victims being bred and raised in secret, their births unregistered.

As for Wood’s suggestion of neighbours reporting children missing, the neighbour at 12 McAlister Ave had an obese wife who ‘went crazy’ and ‘committed suicide’ after repeated losing her children to the paedophile ring. Nobody suspected that she was murdered after she began talking and became a liability.

If there was any evidence of a crime, [Engadine GP] signed any necessary death certificates, while the fat Engadine policeman wrote any required reports. If an incident was beyond the limits of the local community, it was dealt with by those paedophile ring offspring who worked in more senior positions.

My grandfather Poitre Holowczak was found dead at Easter 1991. Helen Holowczak explained to my family that a group of men arrived at her house one morning and told her to go shopping. Upon her return home, Helen found Poitre hanging by a noose in a chook shed up his back yard.

The identity of the NSW police officer who collaborated with corrupt [local] police and [the University] paedophiles to discredit me are contained within my AHPRA case file. I was only granted an anonymous version of this file and so cannot name the corrupt NSW Police. Further, the blonde officer who victimised me twice failed to identify herself to me or to my family on two separate occasions; therefore I cannot provide her identity to you either.

My testimony is true and has not changed in 20 years. I reported these crimes to numerous medical and health professionals, and to family and friends. If it is so ‘outlandish,’ why then have so many gone to such great lengths to try and discredit and silence me, and to label me as insane or a criminal? Why have the NSW Police and health professionals effectively collaborated to discredit and victimise fellow victim Tor Nielsen?

[Kate Gardiner, nee Holowczak]

I have detailed my testimony on my new website: pedophilesdownunder.wordpress.com

I have directly experienced the type of DOCS pedo ring corruption you write about, from the perspective of a psychology registrar.

Lukes Dad's picture

Convicted pedophile Mark Pendleton was secretly recorded discussing sexually exploiting children in Thailand.

TWO convicted pedophiles were taped joking about their sexual interest in children in phone recordings played to a Supreme Court jury this morning.

Former teacher Mark Pendleton, 53, and Kenneth Bishop, 74, have pleaded not guilty to conspiring between 2006 and 2008 to have sex with a child under 16 outside Australia.

The two met while at Karnet Prison Farm along with third conspirator and fellow sex offender Robert Gordon Cummins.

It is alleged that while the three were in prison, they hatched a plan to set up a doll-making business in Thailand called “Little Angels”' as a front for a child abuse ring.

Prosecutors allege the business would involve the men setting up in rural northern Thailand, employing poor, unsophisticated women from villages to make the traditional dress dolls and gain access to their children.


Cummins has pleaded guilty to the same charges and is the first witness to give evidence in the Supreme Court trial.

This morning, the jury was played phone recordings between Cummins and Pendleton, after Cummins had been released from jail.

In the recordings, the men could be heard talking about the women they were courting in Thailand through the internet - Cummins acting as a proxy for Pendleton who was still in Karnet.

During one phone conversation, Cummins said the women he was most interested in were from villages and “more simple people”.

He told Pendleton how some women were sending him photographs of their “lovely families”.

“I’m getting this nice collection of photos together,” he said.

During questioning by prosecutor Mark Trowell, QC, Cummins said the reference to the “lovely families” was about children.

"It was implying (we both had) interest in children and being involved in women with children for sexual purposes,” Cummins told the court.

In later recordings, the men go on to joke about one woman wanting to set up an orphanage because she could not have children of her own.

The two men were heard joking about the idea of an orphanage and when asked why they were laughing, Cummins said: “From our point of view, we had discussed setting up an orphanage and having access to the children there for sexual purposes.”

Another woman Cummins was talking to - who he described at one stage as at “the top of my list” - had a toddler daughter with the nickname Film, and both men made several references to the name with sexual innuendo.

"You’re a very bad man Robert,” Pendleton said.

"So they say,” Cummins replied.

Cummins also told Pendleton how he had sent a woman money with a plan of endearing himself to the family.

"The idea behind it was to assist them and become valuable to them,” Cummins told the court.

"So they would allow me to do anything I wanted.

"Including sexual activity with the children.”

The trial continues.

A week ago, we learned that a Conservative MP (d. 1995) Geoffrey Dickens warned the firm about Thatcher choking business pedophile. Which earned him direct threats and burglaries soon as he started talking about some people [1].

From 1981 to 1985, Dickens tried to alert the Parliament on a pedophile who was in the film distribution pédopornos. But these remarks had no echo at the time.

However, he cited a downright Peter Hayman, a diplomat and a member of MI6, as a pedophile who had escaped prosecution although he got caught with equipment pédoporno. In 1983, Dickens spoke of a pedophile network that involved personalities, “people in positions of power, influence and have responsibilities,” he threatened people swinging in Parliament.

In 1984, Dickens called the Paedophile Information Exchange ban (PIE), a platform through which the paedo is exchanged photos, videos and best addresses [2]. It is also suspected that the system used to order children. Dickens also mentioned the rape of children who were under the authority of local Leon Brittan.

Dickens denounced the existence of brothels children in Islington, a suburb of London (precisely where Tony Blair lived), and stated that forty children were victims. He gave everything to Scotland Yard, which has done nothing.

In 1984 the cops were vaguely being investigated on Elm Guest House, this chic inn in London, where children from orphanages neighbors were raped under the eye of cameras by MPs, judges and other pop stars . Among the visitors Elm Guest House was just Sir Peter Hayman.

Finally, the survey was cut short, as compared to 2003. Authorities and households have never found it useful to conduct an investigation even though they were alerted. Dickens also sent some of the documents related to this case the interviewer Andrea Davison [3]. But, the police seized in January 2010 by the cops Wales. Andrea Davison explained that at this time the cops were afraid that the pedophile VIP is exposed due to the antics of Savile.

She also explained that Dickens gave the same folder Leon Brittan, whose involvement was not established at the time, but actually part of guest visitors Elm House. Davison and Andrea Brittan had spoken with Dickens in the early 90s, and “Leon was summoned by a number of survivors. It was crucial for the pedophile to gain the sympathy of people in high positions. “

It is also proved that the record of 50 pages, hand delivered by Dickens in 1984, had disappeared from the office Brittan, Ministry of Home Affairs (home office).

As for the case of Dickens, it was destroyed by the family after his death because his wife believed that said file was too sensitive to keep the family home. But copies exist, is to know where they are.

In early February, John Stingemore, former leader of Grafton Close Home, an orphanage which had some of the children [4] exploited Elm Guest House (which has since closed), was arrested along with his father Tony McSweeney was apparently he used one of the guest house. In fact, some educators Grafton Close pedophiles were never worried. Among them, Neil Kier, who oversaw the home. Terry Earland, who ran for his services to children in Richmond County, where was the Grafton Close, had just arranged the coup that Kier is an educator who cares for children out of the Elm Guest House the day of the single raid in 1982.

Today, the same Earland, which is nevertheless prominently in the investigation file on Elm Guest House, said he had twice tried to warn his colleagues and the police about sexual abuse in orphanages, he was in charge ...

He also explained he had been warned in advance of the descent into the guest house by the police itself. Moreover, all the authorities were aware, which may explain that the place was almost empty [5] while the cops are waiting to fall on an orgy with thirty adults.

However, in the neighborhood everyone knew very well what was happening in the guest house. We talked about these members and artists who left the brothel at night, not fast. You could hear the celebrations taking place there, we saw the lights ... Besides, they have not failed to complain to their representatives at the time, but today these politicians seem to suffer from amnesia.

Today, the police are obliged to investigate, and in December 2012, a dozen victims - men have told police they were raped by men Guste Elm House.

Until recently we learned that Peter Hatton Bornshin, a victim who has been placed in Grafton Close Children’s home after the suicide of her mother, said she had been repeatedly raped while he was in this home. In 1994 at age 28, he committed suicide by taking an overdose of cocaine, too marked by the abuse he had suffered as a child. Yet he had been recognized as a victim and had touched a high compensation.

Another victim told cops that when placed close to Grafton in the 80s, it was prostitute in Elm Guest House (where sfilms were shot), but has also been sent to Amsterdam, Mecca paedocriminality at that time.

Elm Guest House and Dutch networks

It has been said that Elm Guest House was connected to the network Spartacus, who was advertising for sex in that it organized. Spartacus was a guide for pedophiles broadcast in 150 countries, who gave the best addresses and even coupons, which was managed by his father John Stamford. And for some reason, it still exists.

According to the investigation of a social worker who had met Carole Kasir, the owner of Elm Guest house at the time, Glencross also edited the newsletter group gay particonservateur [6], CGHE Newsletter (Conservative Gay Homosexual Equality), which contained ads for Elm Guest House.

According to the same survey, and after Operation Fairbanks conducted by the police, another visitor Elm Guest House was George Tremlett, former leader of the Greater London Council, former journalist and author, including a biography David Bowie. He often went there at the time the abuse took place.

Originally Elm Guest House guest house was normal. Then it became a meeting place for homosexuals at the instigation of several people, including John Rowe and mackerel pedophile Terry Dwyer. This would also be the ones who have introduced to Carole Kasir Peter Glencross, the priest who hosted Hubert Vedrine and was a friend of his father. According to the report, Glencross was the “business manager” Spartacus guide.

During a search of his rectory of St. Leger des Vignes - where he was hosted Védrine few years [7] earlier and where he lived with his five-adoptive son in the early 90s, was found a quantity of material pédoporno [8] and what to do photo shoots. It is a month after the raid another pedophile priest, “the pastor Doucé” Christ the Liberator, was murdered, most likely by the DGSE who came looking at him (note that Doucé was a former lover Philippe Carpentier, CRIESdont pillar was already discussed). Glencross was imprisoned and died shortly after its release in preventive heart attack. Apparently, it was Doucé who distributed the photos taken by Glencross in his studio.

John Rowe was a pedophile who organized trips to the Netherlands for members duMonday Club, a group of MPs on the right wing of the Conservative Party [9], and some of whom were on the list of visitors Elm Guest House. He said “MI5” in front of his name on the guest list Elm Guest House in connection with a Tricker Russell Howard, former English teacher convicted pedophile become a driver for a tour operator for pedophiles English for the Netherlands, where he took refuge after his conviction in England in the late 80s.

According to the survey of Marcel Vervloesem, the Belgian association Morkhoven [10] referred to the police, he was carrying children from England to the Netherlands with false passports probably obtained through contacts with the British Embassy in the Netherlands, to send them in brothels.

In 1995, it took 15 months in prison for trafficking in images pédopornos, and was sentenced to ten other people, then resumed its activities in finding apartments in Amsterdam for pedophiles spree. The band met children in Amsterdam and sailed for orgies filmed. We also note that John was fired Stamford Netherlands in 1988 to be sold pédopornos videos, and then fled to Germany where the laws are more lax in this area.

Stamford was also convicted in Belgium, where he had come to retire near Antwerp, after Germany has strengthened its laws on crimes against children. In a report English, undercover reporters who had been offered by two boys in Manila Stamford (called “the angel of the slums”) filmed the priest when he said “if you’re discreet, I guarantee that you will have as many boys as you want in the Philippines. ” In addition, four Swiss associations for the defense of children also continued in the late 90s.

Finally, Amsterdam Tricker was part of the English group who organized a pedophile with Warwick Spinks, unfortunately that does more. In this group (and also stopped in 1995), Derek Brown, who had spoken of a snuff movie was none other than dumeurtre Jason Swift in 1985, for which a marginal band was convicted. Brown was convicted in the Netherlands in 1989 to film production with paedo Dutch and Moroccan children, and was friends with Mark Enfield, who was an accomplice in the murder of Jason Swift, but has never been questioned. We’ll be back very soon on this case Jason Swift, which is far from clear.

As for Warwick Spinks, one can say that has traveled extensively until his arrest in 2012 to return to the Czech Republic, he is involved in the pédoporno including snuff movies, and he became very wealthy. In Amsterdam, he dragged in gay bars where they also provided children, and was in contact with a lot of pedophiles from Britain or even Austria, as a René Osterwalder, emigrated to Amsterdam Swiss doctor, who wanted to make Romanian children for slaughter in snuff movies [11]. He then mounted his own brothels where children were sold “behind the counter”. Spinks was the crossroads of several networks, including Zandvoort, through its contacts with Norbert de Rijke and Lothar Glandorf.

Then some Barry Dwyer and Haddon have transformed the guest house in brothel for pedophiles.

Meanwhile, we learn that Kasir Haroun, former husband of Carole Kasir and owner of the guest house, prepares to leave England to join his son in the United States.

We also learn that the board of Richmond chose to pay a settlement agreement with a victim who complained rather than risk a trial, and that with the taxpayers’ money. Apparently, other civil proceedings took place.

List

The father found his son unconscious, and a guy was convicted, but the father thought it was not good guilty.
Anthony Blunt, MI5 double agent and Soviet close to the royal family. When he was discovered, he swung fellow double agents so that its activities remain secret. But we can ask why MI5 recruited him in 1939 while Blunt sympathies for the communists were known [13]. Thatcher and the balance in full parliament in 1979? Blunt and loses his title of nobility! He died in 1983 at the time of the incident Elm Guest House. He was also a cousin of the mother of Queen Elizabeth II and her father worked for the British Embassy in Paris.

Throughout his career, he was under the influence of accusations of pedophilia, as in the case with the 80 orphanages Wales. As “home secretary”, that is to say the internal affairs, it was necessarily aware of the scandals of pedophile networks and their systematic suffocation.

Denning was grilled as part of a pedophile ring based in a box disco for young people in Surrey. Other prominent members were Tom Paton, manager of the Bay City Rollers or Jonathan King, singer and producer who was convicted again in 2000 for sexual abuse of boys committed between 1983 and 1989.

To do this, Righton took £ 900 fine. We also learned that the lover Righton was a school for emotionally disturbed children. As in Napier, he had already been convicted in 1972 for sexual abuse of a minor, then went to Sweden in 1978 where he was a teacher, then left the country to become an English teacher in Cairo. There he boasted to send videos by British diplomatic bags. Napier has also helped to establish a school in Turkey ... In 1995, he made 15 months in prison for a rape committed in the 80s. Righton, as head of education in England, even took his defense in 1972 that Napier was no longer a risk to children, and even he was a good teacher!

THE Catholic Church believed it had an understanding with the NSW police in 2003 that allowed them to conceal evidence against pedophile priests, a freedom of information (FoI) document reveals.

The file, accessed through FoI laws by NSW Greens MP David Shoebridge and obtained by ABC's Lateline, documents the Catholic Church's attempt to co-opt NSW police to strike into the illegal agreement.

"Church authorities shall make available the report of an assessment and any other matter relevant to the accused's account of events only if required to do so by court order," the unsigned draft memorandum read.

Catholic Commission for Employment Relations executive director Michael McDonald wrote to the NSW child protection squad on June 18, 2003 seeking confirmation the memorandum of understanding (MOU) was still in place.

In response, Kim McKay from the child protection squad advised no agreement ever existed.

"The arrangements proposed by the draft MOU appear to be in direct conflict with the explicit legislative requirement of section 316 of the Crime Act," he wrote in August 20, 2003.

It's unclear how long the church had been acting according the draft MOU.

Michael Salmon, who was the Catholic Church's point of contact for police at the time, provided a statement to Lateline confirming the church had operated under the unsigned agreement.

"The church assumed it was operational, we were practicing the provisions of the MOU and dealing with the police under those provisions," he said.

"We had an understanding from police it was approved."

Mr Shoebridge says it's unclear how many cases were dealt with by the church under this assumption.

"It's likely that hundreds, if not more than that, cases were processed through this MOU," he told ABC.

"Processed in a way that didn't protect victims, didn't assist the police in prosecuting for crimes, but protected the good name of the church."

AS A MATTER OF PUBLIC RECORD
 
I write on behalf of all vicitms of child sexual abuse inside Australian State High School military cadet units and all victims of official corruption.
 
Regarding our recorded telephone conversation yesterday I note your baseless claim that you have no evidence of the existence of 12th. flight RAAF AirTC at Clontarf Beach State High School.
 
Your claim is patently absurd.  It has already been established in a Brisbane District Court trial during 2006, that convicted serial pedophile and former RAAF Flying Officer Graham Charles Wickson was attached to that cadet unit throughout the 1970's and molested cadets there during his RAAF service. Have you even bothered to read the judgement or the newspaper articles that followed it?
 
The mere fact that your Senator Abetz oversaw the destruction of RAAF documents and other records in his year 2000/1 coverup exercise leading to your current claim of "no evidence the unit existed" will not be anywhere near suffice for your Government agency to continue it's denials of responsibility and now it's apparent 'fantastic' denials of the actual existence of the cadet unit.
 
These denials you are purporting are so preposterous it is difficult to put into words.  Apart from the few remaining photographic records there are literally hundreds of former cadets that went through that unit in the 1970's attending on a weekly basis, also going on bush camps to Elimbah and Bribie Island and trips to places like RAAF base Amberley sometimes lasting up to a week.  Many of these former cadets are potential witnesses who would at this time testify in court to the fact Flying Officer Graham Charles Wickson was there at Clontarf Beach State High School dealing with young boys...... indecently.
 
There should be no requirement for any more victim or witness testimonies.  You and your masters should stop the semantics and get on with the apologies and compensation offers to the victims.
 
It is a terrible shame that your masters in the Senate apparently wish to continue this ongoing coverup of the child sexual abuse of RAAF cadets as young as 13yo in state high school cadet units during the 1970's and continue to deny justice and compensation to the apparent numerous victims.  It is equally shameful that those in power wish to continue victimising me and my offspring in what is clearly an exercise using incredibly corrupt measures to supress the exposure of terrible crimes and vicarious liability of consecutive faulty Governments. = A copybook frame up of a whistleblower nonetheless.  
 
We call on you to drop the ridiculous charade and make good an offer for compensation.  Furthermore your master Senator Abetz should open the books on what he did to the records relating to the former 'Australian Cadet Service' during his panic restructure in 2000/1 whilst he and Bob Atkinson demonstrably delayed the Wickson investigation, and hand over those records (or truthful explanations for destroying the records and delaying a criminal investigation) to the Child Abuse Royal Commission!!
 
We look forward to your response to this communication.
 
Yours Truly
 
PPR of ROBERT
CPO

Child abuse through social networks is also on the rise, reports charityThe toll of child porn offences is now so high it would take police and the courts nearly 20 years to prosecute even those currently operating in Britain, it was claimed yesterday.

Child protection experts said the police have seized an estimated 300million indecent images in just two years - which are increasingly extreme and involving younger and younger children.

MPs heard that exploitation of children on social networking sites including Facebook has also seen a major rise, with many of the abusers operating from abroad and very difficult to track down.

John Carr, of the Children’s Charities Coalition of Internet Safety, revealed yesterday that at the current rate, it would take until 2032 to prosecute the child sex predators currently operating in Britain.

Five police forces who replied to a request about how many images they had seized came to 26million from April 2010 to 2012.

Mr Carr said according to statisticians if this rate was replicated across Britain, officers would have seized around 300million images in this time.

He gave the first indication of the massive scale of online child abuse while speaking at Commons Culture Select Committee’s first session on online safety yesterday.

There are estimated to be 50,000 child sex offenders in this country, whose crimes range from downloading images to carrying out physical abuse, according to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (Ceop), the main body investigating child abuse.

Peter Davies, chief executive of Ceop said: ‘It is quite a stark figure. We check trends in images every year and our experience recently has been the victims seem to be getting younger and younger and the levels of abuse seem to be getting worse and worse. There is no comfort in any of our analysis.’

Mr Davies said most of the millions of images seized by police were duplicates but one or new images of an unidentified child were reported every week, and each of them was ‘a crime scene.’

He added that an ‘emerging trend’ in the exploitation was online grooming through websites, of ‘increasing severity’ which has very harmful consequences for the victims including suicide.

‘This is not so much about taking an interest in indecent images of children as using the medium of the internet to contact, ruthlessly manipulate and exploit and sexually abuse children to the point of causing them physical harm and psychological harm, and in some cases pushing them towards suicide, either because of the acts they have been compelled to do or in some cases because they’ve carried out acts online which are then used to blackmail them for money which they don’t have’, he said.

He added that it was difficult to detect because there is no physical contact between the victim and offender, who often ‘will target and harvest victims in a completely different part of the world’.

‘It’s important to identify that what we are trying to tackle is appalling aspects of human behaviour to some extent facilitated by the internet’, he said.

‘At the moment we are seeing roughly half this kind of activity taking place though by social networking sites, of which Facebook is the major one but not the only one , also through chat environments and other forums.’

These mediums are not to blame, he said, but needed to be managed better as the internet has ‘amplified, multiplied and sometimes almost industrialised’ the abuse of children, Mr Davies said.

On the issue of the number of people operating he said all police forces prioritise hunting ‘the worst offenders, the people at the heart of the networks who cause the greater harm’, and said the number of children protected from abuse was on the rise.

He added: ‘I’m told there are 85,000 prison places in the UK and that gives you some indication of what would actually happen if we actually got up one morning and arrested all these people....so we have to have a plan that goes beyond law enforcement’.

Mr Carr told MPs that illegal images were easy to find by those looking at legal adult content on the internet within ‘a couple of clicks’. ‘You can get pretty quickly to some of them....you need a little bit of determination but not a great deal’, he said.

He also called for legal providers of porn to use age verification procedures based on the electoral roll and credit card records, which are used successfully by the gambling industry to protect children viewing adult material which is ‘violent and sadistic’.

He supported the talks with service providers about measures to protect children including an opt-in system for online porn.

Hundreds of child welfare professionals, including police officers, care workers and teachers, have been identified as 'extremely high-risk' paedophiles by an investigation into internet porn.

The discovery came after US authorities passed on more than 7,000 names of UK subscribers to an American-based child porn website. When police examined a sample of the most dedicated users, they discovered that many worked with children.

Investigators knew paedophiles targeted jobs which brought them into contact with children, but were shocked by how many British suspects had been undetected by the usual checks.

The discovery that many were working in jobs of the highest sensitivity will send shock waves through the child protection world and lead to calls for even more stringent safeguards.

Investigators now believe as many as 90 police officers have so far been identified from an initial trawl of 200 of the British names found in the US. Many of the other suspects work in other sensitive professions, often linked to the criminal justice system.

John Carr of the Children's Charities' Coalition for Internet Safety (CHIS), which represents all major children's organisations, including the NSPCC, NCH and Barnardos, said: 'It's very distressing to learn that so many policeman are being arrested for these sorts of offences. It undermines people's confidence in our ability to deal with it at all.'

Harry Fletcher, deputy general secretary of the probation union Napo, said: 'There has been growing evidence over the past 10 years that paedophiles have infiltrated careers that put them in direct contact with children. This latest evidence suggests we have to be even more vigilant.'

Specialist child porn investigators, including officers from the National Hi-Tech Crime Unit, have initially concentrated on users who had made more than 10 purchases of child porn from the internet. They used a US web 'portal' that gave access to dozens of sites with titles such as Cyber Lolita, I Am Fourteen and Child Rape. The sites were run by porn barons in Russia and Indonesia and involved abuse committed on captive children.

British involvement in the child porn ring was so large that police set up Operation Ore to investigate all 7,200 subscribers in this country. They have passed on all the names to the relevant forces for further investigation; 700 are known to be in Scotland and 279 in Cambridgeshire. Police believe at least 5,000 could be considered 'goers' and lead to arrests.

Operation Ore has also uncovered civil servants, a firefighter and a teacher in Northern Ireland. Another teacher has been arrested in Cambridgeshire and suspended from working with 11-year-olds at a village school.

One Home Office insider told The Observer that investigations targeted the most serious cases, where arrests and convictions were thought to be relatively straightforward. These involve images of pre-pubescent children where suspects cannot claim they believed they were purchasing adult porn.

The US investigation, Operation Avalanche, was set up by the United States Postal Inspection Service, which probes online porn. It began in Texas and has generated more than 75,000 identities worldwide.

The website portal was run by Thomas and Janice Reedy, a married couple in Fort Worth, Texas, who were running an online porn empire from their suburban mansion which generated £1 million a month in fees. Both have been sent to prison.

The Association of Chief Police Officers (Apco) has warned Ministers that forces do not have the resources to deal with the problem. It is awaiting a Home Office decision on a submission for £2 million of crisis funding.

A Home Office spokeswoman said Ministers welcomed Acpo's focus on the issue, but they had already provided an extra £25 million to help combat hi-tech crime, including child porn.

A police spokesman said: 'There are people up and down this country who are sweating. Give us their computer, even if it's been thrown on a skip, and we can quickly nail them.'

'Police gunman told me to ignore paedophiles’, says ex-child protection officer

Source: UK's Daily/Sunday Express

A FORMER child protection officer claimed last night a Special Branch detective held a gun to his head to stop him investigating a VIP paedophile ring.

Chris Fay said he was pinned to a wall and throttled before being given a chilling warning to “back away” from allegations surrounding the notorious Elm Guest House in Barnes, south-west London.

Young boys in care were allegedly taken there in the Eighties to be abused by high-profile MPs and other powerful establishment figures.

Mr Fay, 67, of south London, said: “It became very dangerous. People seem to forget that Special Branch could do what they liked, they were a law unto themselves.

“At one point they had me up against a wall by my throat with a gun at my head telling me in no uncertain terms that I was to back away if I knew what was good for me.

Wanna bet the security services like MI5 and/or MI6 (or maybe even the "Special Branch" itself) did not want this perversity stopped as it no doubt produced a fount of good blackmail material that could be used against MPs and VIPs, so the orders went out to the elite police "Special Branch" unit to warn off any well meaning, naive, do-gooders who tried to stop the travesty.

Another 'WAPOL Corporation trading as WA Police' detective goes down for child pornography.  How many innocent victims has this paedophile copper framed up and sent up the creek whilst himself engaging in this abhorent criminal past time?  Enough is enough they clearly cannot be trusted, it's time to close down WAPOL Corporation and bring back the Imperial police!!!  Alarmingly the judge is reported as stating in court that he must view all the evidence before deciding the sentence.  I will let you make up your own minds about the possible ramifications of that dilemna.
 
This is another chapter in a long list of serial offenders caught working for WAPOL Corporation.  The Question begs as to how can this Corporation come to the bar table with clean hands in any criminal prosecution?
 
Click on the link for the sickening story.  Caught with thousands of videoes and images of child porn FFS!

In 2004, concerned parent and whistleblower Fiona Barnett became determined to end teacher Gary Willis’ (then) 15 year alleged child abuse spree — but the NSW Education Department and police had decidedly different ideas. Here, Fiona tells the second part of this story.

Approximately 30 concerned parents signed various letters of complaint that were posted to Prime Minister John Howard, Bob Carr (NSW premier), Brendan Nelson (Federal education minister), Jenny Macklin (Federal Opposition education spokesperson), Andrew Refshauge (NSW minister for education), Jillian Skinner (NSW Opposition education spokesperson), and the NSW Ombudsman.

I approached Tweed Heads Police detectives Josh Burton and Murray Baker, who told me that Gary Willis was known by the justice system with regards to child abuse allegations, and that DOCS involvement was mentioned onscreen. Detective Baker said that he put an Intel report into crime manager regarding the information I had gathered and he expressed concern over possible corruption within the Education Department. He stated that Willis had never been charged with anything. He told me that one complaint had been in the system from about 8 to 9 years ago, that it had not been substantiated. He told me that certain complaints I knew had been made to police did not appear on the screen under Gary Willis’ name.

An EPAC Child Protection Investigator, Sandra Cameron, informed me that the NSW Education Department held a considerable number of files containing abuse allegations against teacher Gary Willis, including numerous written complaints by teachers. Ms Cameron said that much of the information was horrendous and allegedly of a criminal nature and that it had subsequently been turned over to the police.

Our complaint was assigned to Chief Inspector Bob Sullivan of the NSW Child Protection and Sex Crimes Squad. On 27 October, 2004, Bob Sullivan phoned witness DM (refer to Part 1), whose daughter ("Y") had recently alleged that teachers Gary Willis and Steve Tyler (now deceased) had sexually assaulted her while she was a student at the East Murwillumbah Primary School. Y told her mother (DM) that she would like to pursue charging Gary Willis for his alleged crime.

A 44-YEAR-OLD Perth policeman has been stood down from duty after he allegedly sexually assaulted a child.

West Australian police said the senior constable, from the East Metropolitan District, had been charged by the Internal Affairs Unit with two counts of sexual penetration of a child over 13 years and under 16 years.

The alleged offences involved a 15-year-old girl.

The officer is due to appear in the Midland Magistrates Court later on Friday.

A NSW police officer allegedly revealed fantasies he had of abusing children in an online forum with a user who turned out to be another officer acting undercover.

Senior Constable Darryl Laurence Hahn made comments about "tying up parents and raping their children in front of them" while chatting in a private conversation with another user of the gay dating website Manhunt, a Nowra court heard yesterday.

The officer also wrote about "forcing a father to rape his son", performing a lewd act on a dog, and being attracted to people aged "six or above", the Illawarra Mercury reports.

His lawyer, Doug Marr, told the Downing Centre District Court Hahn admitted to the conversations but argued he was not guilty of the two charges of using a carriage service to offend.

The exchange had been private and consensual, Mr Marr said.

"It's not the role of the (court) to censor private conversations between consenting adults," he said, and in order for the conversation to be deemed offensive the undercover officer needed to have had a "significant emotional reaction or psychological response".

Prosecutor Jennifer Price said any reasonable person would find the conversation offensive and Hahn's comments were at the highest end of the spectrum.

The case has been adjourned until next month for Presiding Magistrate Lisa Stapleton to consider her judgement.

In 1989, Norman and Alison Shulver ran the Mornington Child Care Centre and Nursery School, in Parwan Crescent, Mornington, a bayside suburb of Victoria, Australia. In November of that year a four year old girl who attended the centre told her mother that Norman had played with her vagina and bottom. Her mother reported this to the authorities. Norman Shulver denied the allegations and this was found by the police to be sufficient grounds for dropping the matter.


Similar allegations emerged in 1992. One child told her parents that Norman “did pee-pee” in her mouth. Another boy told his father that “Norman put sticks up my bottom”. The Monash University Sexual Assault Centre determined that a number of children who attended the centre had been penetrated by a blunt instrument.

The subsequent investigation by the police Child Exploitation Unit determined that 24 children alleged abuse while attending the Centre. The State Government Office of Preschool and Child Care inquiry heard evidence that in 1992 while attending the centre, a number of children had been taken in a car to a nearby house, undressed by adults, photographed and videotaped while naked, forced to play sexual games, and urinated and defecated upon by adults. The adults, it was heard, wore masks and “funny clothes” including police uniforms.

Ann Sherry, who chaired the 1992 inquiry by the Office of Preschool and Child Care found that the Shulvers were not appropriate people to be running a child care centre, having at least allowed the abuse to take place. She further found that “There is a substantial amount of evidence that the person or persons who actually committed the acts of abuse may have included Norman Shulver.”

In 1994, the Crimes Compensation Tribunal awarded damages of up to $20,000 to each of the 30 applicants over this case. Clearly neither this tribunal nor the Office of Preschool and Child Care inquiry felt there was any doubt that serious sexual abuse of children aged 3 and 4 had taken place. The medical evidence alone seems quite conclusive. Despite this, Victoria Police failed to press charges against the Shulvers or anyone else.

Were it not for the alleged involvement of members of the Victoria Police, this case would undoubtedly have been aggressively investigated, charges laid and the Shulvers and/or any other perpetrators would have received significant prison sentences. That this did not happen, and that members of the police force were implicated, is surely no coincidence.

What did happen, other than the deregistration of the Shulvers as child care centre proprietors, is nothing. Over the intervening 16 years, police have neglected to interview witnesses, and have apparently destroyed evidence. Witnesses have been harassed and had death threats made against them and their families.

That police had mishandled the investigation become so clear that in 2002, Commissioner Christine Nixon referred relevant complaints to the Victorian Ombudsman Dr. Barry Perry. This did little to stem interference with the investigation, and it continued to be plagued with serious problems.

The most glaring examples centre on two pieces of crucial evidence. The first is the identity of the owner of the house in Mornington at which the abuse was alleged to have occurred – namely that it was registered to a member of Victoria Police. The second is a videotape of the abuse being carried out by men in police unifroms.

Information about both of these items was delivered to an investigator from the Ethical Standards Department. The investigator claimed not to have received them and not have spoken to the relevant witnesses. He persisted in this deception until his telephone records were accessed and proved he was lying. The videotape subsequently went missing from the police evidence locker.

The Ombudsman’s report was damning about the investigation. The ESD investigator was removed from the investigation. Two detectives were told they were going to be transferred to other squads, but after a threat of industrial action by the Police Union, they were not, and remained in the sexual crimes squad.

Shortly before he was due to report his findings, Barry Perry suffered serious health complications and resigned from the post. Mainstream media reported that he suffered a stroke while walking alone on a friend’s country property one afternoon, and was not reported missing until 9pm that night. Corruption investigator Raymond Hoser contends that the Ombudsman was bashed and left for dead.

The report subsequently issued by his successor in 2004 was described by The Age newspaper as “damning” and alleged serious misconduct on the part of police investigators. Despite its finding that police investigators had compromised the case by failing to obtain statements and evidence, by having mishandled what evidence they were given, and probably by lying under oath, Assistant Commissioner for crime Simon Overland took solace in the fact that the investigation did not find police force members categorically guilty of corruption or criminal misconduct. In 2005 he categorised the findings against the two officers as “minor failings” and no further action was taken against them. The Ombudsman’s report was not made public, ostensibly for fear it would identify the victims.

Clearly the State Government has failed to properly investigate and prosecute well-substantiated cases of child sexual abuse on a large scale. Cases in which the police themselves seem to be implicated. The only conclusion a reasonable person can draw from this is that there is something decidedly rotten in the state of Victoria. There are people who are at large in Australian society today, apparently including members of the Victoria Police, who are free to to sexually abuse children with impunity. What picture of the world are those 24 children left with? How can their parents explain to them what happened and how it was dealt with?

Until the perpetrators of this crime and those who have obstructed its investigation are brought to justice, no-one can have faith in the Victorian Government, its judiciary or its police force. Police Commissioner Christine Nixon, and Premier John Brumby should be called to account for this grave miscarriage of justice.
