Child sex trade thrives in Czech Republic

CHEB, Czech Republic -- Helena started in the profession aged 16 "when my mother sold me to a pimp." Her sister was six when she was "led to a client", and to this day the young gypsy does not know what became of her.

Helena's heartbreaking history -- she passed through the hands of around 20 pimps and was made to serve "20 to 30 clients a day" -- highlights how social distress and poverty still reduces some families into selling their children into the Czech sex trade, sometimes at a very early age.

Child prostitution took off with the end of communism and the opening of frontiers at the start of the 1990s and still thrives, according to Jiri Istvanik. He heads a special police task force in the west Czech town of Cheb that lies on the German border and has become infamous as a magnet for sex tourism.

European Union membership in 2004 has changed little.

"As long as the economic situation does not develop and there are different standards of living on both sides of the frontier, it will continue," commented Ludmilla Irmscher, a member of the German non-governmental organisation, Karo, which was created 10 years ago.

In 2005, 119 adults were charged with procuring minors, according to figures from the Czech interior ministry though specialist associations say this number should be multiplied several times to reflect reality.

Between five and 10 percent of women victims of human trafficking in the Czech Republic are underage, according to a 2004 report by the Czech Institute of Criminology (IKSP). "Clients" are for the most part Germans, Austrians and British, according to the ministry.

In Cheb, some maintain that child prostitution is a myth fostered by gypsies to attract foreign paedophiles to the town's deprived districts so that they can be robbed.

But local authorities and police do not deny the existence of child prostitution and say they are doing everything to combat it. "The gypsy community is the principle supplier (of children), the people are poor and for them it is a means of surviving," Istvanik asserted.

Cheb Mayor Jan Svoboda maintains that Czech law -- which fixes 15 as the age for consensual sex, compared with 18 years in neighbouring Germany -- helps attract the fans of young flesh.

The phenomenon is so commonplace that in the town's parks, young children play a game called "hookers and pimps", according to a UNICEF study published in June 2005.

One child in four, in the town of around 36,000, considers prostitution as a legitimate means of gaining a living, with around a third saying they have seen a child prostitute, according to the same study.

"We sometimes see girls of 13 and 14 passing the night at the side of roads," deplored Martina, a Karo worker who regularly tours the frontier region to distribute syringes and condoms to prostitutes.

Her tours are aimed at keeping tabs on what is happening, breaking the girls' isolation and offering help. "But it is very difficult because the prostitutes are afraid of speaking because their pimp is somewhere nearby," she said.

The children themselves are in a much more complex situation with their parents at the bottom of the social ladder and for whom being placed in a home would resolve nothing, according to social workers.

Helena, now 26, passed some of her childhood in a home where she claims to have been beaten. Telling her story "is heartbreaking" for her.

Sold, resold, beaten and drugged, she plied the streets or the private bars that mushroom on the Czech-German border for years. She worked even when she was nine months pregnant and never saw her baby, which her pimps immediately gave up for adoption without asking her.

To intimidate her, her masters showed her a video showing a girl she knew from a night club having her throat cut by "men from the Russian mafia", who apparently are said to control the sex business in the Cheb region. That was what made up her mind "to change her life", with the help of Karo, last summer.

To fight against sexual slavery and save the likes of Helena, specialised associations say laws need to be tightened, the police need to be taught to treat prostitutes as victims, and the wider public, including "clients", need to be made aware of what is at stake.

"It is not a question of attributing blame or moralising but to say that there are things that cannot be permitted and should be denounced," stressed Irmscher.

A group of German "sex tourists" are already cooperating with Karo by giving regular updates on the Czech nightclubs that they use, which are no-go areas for the NGO workers and similar organisations.

Duffer told mom, cops that sex began, continued at boy"s request
By Jared Allen, mailto:jallen@nashvillecitypaper.com
June 06, 2007

In 2004, just hours before Jeremy Duffer was arrested, both the Metro Police Sex Crimes Unit and the mother of the then 13-year-old boy who had just heard her son confess to a two-year-long sexual relationship with Duffer had one burning question — Why?

Duffer had one answer for them, which he repeated over and over; he agreed to perform sex acts on the boy, who was 20 years his junior, and have the boy perform sex acts on him, only because that is what the boy wanted.

On Tuesday, the second day of Duffer"s child rape, statutory rape trial and especially aggravated sexual battery trial, it was the jury"s turn to hear Duffer give that answer.

Before the evidence portion of the trial had concluded Tuesday afternoon, Duffer had declined to testify on his own behalf after "considerable deliberation," as his attorney, Matthew Mayo, put it.

But that did not stop the jury of six men and six women from getting a chance to hear Duffer explain how a relationship that began as a friendship and a mentorship became one of talking, touching, pornography and eventually sex.

Just hours before Sex Crimes Detective David Zocolla first interviewed Duffer in 2004 about his relationship with the boy, the boy"s mother agreed to work with police and get some answers herself.

She wore a concealed recording device — a wire — and then demanded to speak with Duffer about some troubling things she had come to learn about his relationship with her son.

A tape of that 45-minute conversation, in which Duffer confessed that the two of them had done "pretty much everything" sexually, was played for the jury.

"I need to understand how this happened, how this was initiated," the boy"s mother asked.

Slowly, Duffer began to admit to repeated sexual contact with the boy.

But Duffer said that all of the discussions, all of the experimentation and all of the sex was initiated by the boy, and was conducted at the request of the boy, who was 11 at the time it started.

It was the boy who was curious about his sexuality, Duffer said, and who engaged Duffer first in conversations and later follow-up actions about homosexual sex.

"I didn"t understand it at the time," Duffer told the boy"s mother. "I still don"t understand it. I had never had anything like that and he was asking questions and wanted to know… He said he wanted to see what it felt like."

So Duffer agreed to let the boy perform sex acts on him, some of which he reciprocated on the boy, Duffer said.

"And he liked it. He really enjoyed it," he said.

Sitting in court, the boy"s mother broke down crying while listening to the recorded conversation. As he listened, Duffer repeatedly leaned over to his attorney and whispered into his ear.

The jury also heard the hour-long conversation Duffer had with Zoccolla, a conversation which immediately preceded his arrest and in which Duffer confessed to authorities of having an illegal sexual relationship with the boy.

And again, he insisted that the boy brought on the intimacy, first by asking questions about homosexuality, then by initiating oral sex on him and later by asking Duffer to buy condoms for the two of them and asking Duffer to take nude pictures of him, Duffer told Zoccola.

While telling Zoccola he "should have said "no,"" and "should have known better," Duffer repeatedly told Zoccola that he was merely fulfilling the boy"s wishes to engage in sex acts with him.

"I thought that"s what he wanted me to do," Duffer said. "Whatever [he] wanted to do, we did."

Prosecutor Brian Holmgren told the jury that Duffer"s own words were the most damaging evidence the state had against him.

In addition, Holmgren reminded the jury there was corroborating physical evidence, as well, including the condoms both Duffer and the boy spoke of, pornography and a dozen Polaroid pictures depicting the boy nude and, in at least one, in a sexually suggestive pose, all of which were found at Duffer"s home.

"Those photographs are a memorialization, a permanent record, of the abuse [the victim] sustained at the hands of this defendant," Holmgren said.

"Clearly, my client"s an idiot," Mayo told the jury during his closing argument. "He" an idiot for what he did. He"s an idiot for talking to the police. He"s an idiot for what he said to the media."

But while Mayo said Duffer was clearly guilty of statutory rape, he said his client is not guilty of child rape because the state failed to establish — and that the victim himself testified to — that the victim was younger than 13 when the sex acts occurred, as is required by law for convictions of child rape.

Holmgren countered that the victim"s admission that he was 13 years old when he and Duffer began their sexual relationship was just the miscalculation of a nervous, confused and scared teenager, and that the facts about the child"s age speak for themselves.

"If there"s one thing we know about this case," Holmgren said. "It"s that it occurred early and often."

The jury began its deliberations Tuesday evening, but was soon sent home by Criminal Court Judge Monte Watkins. The jury is scheduled to resume deliberating at 9 a.m. Wednesday.

This is such a tragic thing. Many Indian children are sold into slavery every year, as labourers or sex workers in the big cities. The authorities, especially the local ones, are very corrupt, and even the organisations that are supposed to be watching out for these children are in on it.

It will only get worse as India's economy starts to trickle down more.

Police Smash UK-Based Paedophile Ring

Updated: 18:14, Monday June 18, 2007
Police have smashed a global internet paedophile ring run by a 28-year-old British man who was today sent to jail indefinitely.


Image
Martin Cox

Officers involved in the 10-month operation rescued 31 children who were being abused.

Some of the vile sex attacks were shown live online.

Around 700 suspects - 200 from the UK - were identified in 35 countries during the operation. Some are still being pursued.

Offenders used a web chatroom called Kids The Light Of Our Lives to swap photos and videos of horrific abuse.

It was hosted by brewer Timothy Cox, who admitted nine offences of possessing and distributing tens of thousands of indecent images of children.

A judge at Ipswich Crown Court told him: "These are shocking images which involve very young children.

"In the worst cases (they are) being subjected to sadistic, painful abuse which you, for some distorted reason, appear to take enjoyment from."

Judge Peter Thompson said Cox posed "significant risks" and had to be imprisoned for "for public protection".

The court heard he lived with his parents and sister in their large farmhouse in Buxhall, Suffolk, and worked at the family's micro-brewery.

He operated the website from his bedroom using the pseudonym "Son of God", a reference to another on-line child sex pervert.

Images were swapped on line

The prosecution said Cox spotted a "gap in the market" after a similar American website was closed down by police.

He possessed more than 75,000 indecent images, including more than 1,000 films, which amounted to two weeks of continuous viewing.

Cox was arrested last September after an undercover Canadian policeman found the chatroom during an investigation into paedophile websites.

After his arrest, undercover officers spent 10 days infiltrating the chatroom, assuming his identity to collect evidence about other users.

Sky's Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt said it could well be the biggest internet paedophile operation ever mounted in the UK.

It was led by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre.

Its CEO, Jim Gamble, said: "As predators become increasing sophisticated in their use of the Internet for exploiting young people, so too do the techniques we use to detect them."

Kenya to shut hotels promoting child sex tourism

NAIROBI, June 29, 2007 (AFP) - The Kenyan government will shut hotels that promote child sexual exploitation by foreign and local visitors, a practice widespread in the country's coastal region, reports said on Friday.

"The government will not hesitate to remove licences of hotels found to engage in the vice," said Justice and Constitutional Affairs Minister Martha Karua.

Addressing hoteliers in the coastal city of Mombasa late on Thursday, Karua urged the public to report suspects as the government prepared a bill that would tighten the noose around offenders, the Standard newspaper reported.

Up to 30 percent of Kenyan girls aged between 12 and 18 in the coastal region engage in sex tourism, a practice that contributes to the spread of HIV/AIDS, according a survey by UN Children Fund (UNICEF).

In the survey, released in December, Italy topped the offenders' list with 18 percent followed by Germany at 14 percent and Switzerland at 12 percent, while local visitors accounted for more than 41 percent.

Tourism is Kenya's chief foreign exchange earner. Last year, it earned the country 56.2 billion shillings (799.2 million dollars) up from from 48.9 shillings (695.3 million dollars) in 2005.

Major Russian child pornography dealers arrested

MOSCOW, May 18, 2007 (AFP) - Russian police seized three young dealers of child pornography in the southern Siberian Altai region, with analysts suggesting that the suspects were responsible for half of all child pornography turnout in Russia, local police officials said late Thursday.

The suspects, of whom the oldest was 22 years old, posted ads on foreign servers, which allowed them to escape justice until Russian police joined forces with their Belgian, French and Italian colleagues, officials quoted by the Interfax news agency said.

Police both made test purchases and searched the suspects' apartments, seizing computers, Internet equipment and videos.

If convicted, the suspects, whose names were not released, face up to eight years in jail.

Minister In Skirt Charged With Indecent Exposure
Police Say Man Urinated In Front Of Kids, Offered Oral Sex To Cops

August 1, 2007

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -- A Baptist minister has been charged in Tennessee with indecent exposure and driving under the influence.

Police said 58-year-old Tommy Tester of Bristol, Va., was wearing a skirt when he was arrested last week after allegedly relieving himself in front of children at a car wash.

A report also accuses Tester of offering police officers oral sex and says an open bottle of vodka and empty oxycodone prescription bottle was found in his car when Tester was arrested Friday.

Authorities identified Tester as the minister of Gospel Baptist Church in Bristol and an employee of Christian radio station WZAP-AM, also in Bristol. WZAP issued a statement asking for prayers and saying Tester has been suspended during an investigation.

Tester was released Friday on $1,000 bail. A hearing is scheduled for October.

Six years for rapist who invited friends to prey on lost 12-year-old girl
Steve Bird

A 12-year-old girl was raped up to 15 times by four men after she was abducted as she asked for directions to her home, a court was told.

The child was lured into a car by Shakil Chowdhury, 39, who drove her to his house. There she was plied with alcohol and attacked by Chowdhury and three others. Afterwards he drove her home.

Chowdhury was jailed for six years after pleading guilty to six charges of rape. Detectives are still hunting the other members of the gang.

Minshull Street Crown Court, Manchester, was told that the attack took place last October after the victim became lost while walking in Oldham. She was trying to get home and asked passers by for directions as she walked in the Werneth area.

Chowdhury, who lived two miles away in Chadderton, spotted the girl and encouraged her to get into his car. When she got in she told him her name, address and age. However, Chowdhury asked her if she would like to go to his home with him, and the girl agreed, feeling that she could trust him. But, when the pair got to Chowdhury"s house, he gave her alcohol before taking her upstairs and telling her to lie on the bed. Police said that the girl felt "extremely frightened", but agreed to his request.

He then raped her. After he had left the room a second man came in and sexually assaulted the girl.

During the evening Chowdhury was said to have raped the victim a total of 11 times, using different beds within the house. He also invited two other men to rape her. Chowdhury then took the girl home, asking if he could take her phone number before he left.

The girl raised the alarm when she got home and police identified Chowdhury"s address as the place where the offences took place.

Passing sentence Judge Roger Thomas, QC, ordered Chowdhury to sign the sex offenders register for life.

Detective Chief Inspector Mary Doyle, of Oldham CID, said: "This child was subjected to a terrifying and prolonged attack from Chowdhury and his associates. One of the first things she told him was her name and age, so there is no doubt that he was aware how young she was.

"Chowdhury"s actions that evening would have been unacceptable on a woman of any age, but to carry out this sort of attack on a 12-year-old child is simply abhorrent.

"His victim has shown a great deal of bravery throughout this case. I hope her bravery and the resulting conviction will encourage other victims to come forward, safe in the knowledge that Greater Manchester Police will investigate any complaints fully and take robust action against the people responsible."

Please do read the comments !

Judge fears young sex offender would be killed if caught

A judge is worried that if someone catches a 15-year-old Christchurch boy sex offending with young children again he could be killed on the spot.

The boy is awaiting sentence in Christchurch District Court after a Youth Court judge decided the case was too serious to be dealt with there.

His name remains suppressed after the sentencing was partially completed today. It could not be finished in the time available so Judge Lindsay Moore adjourned the rest of the hearing to Monday.

The boy has admitted charges of sexual violation by unlawful sexual connection, indecent assault, assault, and attempted sexual connection. All four of the victims are boys aged from 6 to 8 years.

Judge Moore said he was struggling with how to get treatment for the boy while still protecting the community. If he jailed him, no suitable treatment programme would be available to him until next year.

Crown prosecutor Ruth Thomas urged imprisonment because it involved less risk to the community. But defence counsel Liz Bulger said the boy should get a non-custodial sentence of supervision which would enable him to continue treatment under the STOP programme for sex offenders.

"This youngster has committed terrible offences," said Judge Moore. "I have got reports that say he continues to be a high risk to himself and to others."

This type of offending caused outrage in the community. "The first reaction of most people, if they caught him in the act, would be to deal with him there and then in a way that would ensure there is never a need for a trial. If he was caught doing to little children what he did to these ones, a lot of people would just hoe straight in and think about it afterwards."

Judge Moore said it was the most difficult case any of them were likely to deal with for some time. He hoped that by adjourning the rest of the hearing to Monday, somebody will think of something that might help".

The boy remains in social welfare custody, living in supported accommodation and with a "tracker" assigned to stay with him 24 hours a day.

Sex offender sentenced to more than 500 years in prison
Friday, September 07, 2007
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

A man convicted of numerous sex crimes against a girl over a 10-year period was sentenced to 565 to 1,130 years in state prison.

A jury in March found Clarence Thomas of Punxsutawney guilty of 971 counts, including more than 100 counts each of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, statutory sexual assault and corruption of minors as well as more than 200 counts of aggravated indecent assault and nearly 400 counts of indecent assault.

Prosecutors said Mr. Thomas assaulted the victim, who was 20 at the time of the verdict, from September 1994 to September 2004. Jefferson County Judge John Foradora on Wednesday called the case one of the worst he had seen.

"I don't know what else to say," Mr. Thomas said. "I didn't do it."

Mr. Thomas had testified that he weighed between 430 and 530 pounds at the time of the alleged assaults and had numerous health problems, including four heart attacks. He also said spinal injuries would have made it impossible for him to commit the crimes.

Defense attorney Scott White repeated concerns about the speed of the verdict, which the jury reached after an hour and 10 minutes of deliberation.

Mr. Thomas also denied having confessed to the woman in a phone conversation. Jefferson County District Attorney Jeffrey Burkett said earlier that she had no motive to lie.

Ex-USAID employee accused of illicit sex with Bangladeshi boy

WASHINGTON, Sept 6, 2007 (AFP) - A former contract employee with a US government foreign aid agency has been arrested on charges of engaging in illicit sex with a boy in Bangladesh, the Department of Justice said Thursday.

American William Rudd, 64, was arrested upon his arrival at Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday after being expelled from the African nation of Togo, where he most recently resided, it said.

Rudd, who previously lived in Fullerton, California, is charged with engaging in illicit sexual conduct with a Bangladeshi boy, who was 10 or 11 years old when the alleged offenses took place from November 2003 through May 2004, a department statement said.

If convicted, Rudd, who once worked as an advisor on a US Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded development project in Bangladesh, faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and a 250,000 dollars fine.

Authorities in Togo arrested Rudd on immigration violations last Friday, after his US passport was revoked in the wake of his indictment.

Cut and run: accused US sex offender tries to saw off leg

WASHINGTON, Sept 10, 2007 (AFP) - A man awaiting trial on child sex charges in the southern state of Arkansas tried to saw off his right leg in an apparent escape bid, police said Monday.

Days before he was due to appear in court on charges of rape and engaging children in sexually explicit conduct, Jerry Scholes sawed down to the bone of his right calf, just above the point where he had been fitted with an electronic tracking anklet, Detective Sergeant Doroteo Delacruz told AFP by phone.

"The speculation is he was trying to escape," Delacruz, who handled the case for the police department in the town of Malvern, said.

"If he had succeeded in cutting off the leg, he would not have set off the alarm on the monitoring device and he would have had 48 hours before anyone knew he had done it," Delacruz said.

The suspect might also have maimed himself so that he would be deemed mentally unfit to stand trial, or so that he would be jailed in a special prison wing for the disabled, Delacruz said.

"He has not given an exact reason for why he did it, except maybe to his clergyman or doctor," Delacruz said, adding that emergency medical staff found Scholes with "plastic zip ties on various parts of his body, including, I'm told, his penis."

"He had already been given psychological testing and was deemed fit," Delacruz said.

Scholes was sentenced Friday to 50 years in jail.

Police save children from paedophile ring

Last Updated: 1:21am BST 15/09/2007

More than 30 children have been rescued from horrifying abuse after police caught a man running a worldwide paedophile ring from his bedroom.

Timothy Cox, 28, was jailed indefinitely earlier this year for child pornography offences after detectives hacked into the website he ran under the pseudonym Son of God.

Child protection officers identified images of children involved in the abuse before shutting it down.

Telegraph - Menswear/Shoes

Since Cox, who ran the site called Kids, the Light of Our Lives from his bedroom in Buxhall, Suffolk, was jailed in June, police have rescued 31 children from abusive situations.

Officers from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) centre ran the undercover operation assisted by Suffolk Police.

A spokesman for the CEOP said: "When we seized the site we were about to infiltrate it as a host to gain intelligence. We then did some work to identify the victims around these images.

"These were not missing children. They were children rescued within their own homes.

"There were incidents of people who had access to children through their professional lives.

"They were of all age ranges and some were as young as babies.

"The majority of the children are from within the UK. More and more children are being rescued as a result of the ongoing operations.

"The likelihood is we are going to get further children."

The website was a trading ground for indecent images and videos of children, including babies, being raped and abused.

Officers from the CEOP said they expected their work to lead them to more children who were still suffering at the hands of their abusers.

The spokesman said: "There will be more charges. It's the first time we have infiltrated a peer-to-peer site and taken over identity of the host to gain further intelligence.

"It's actually quite ground-breaking."

The investigation identified 700 suspects - 200 of whom live in the UK.

Perv flees to France in kayak

September 10, 2007

A PAEDOPHILE is believed to have paddled to France in a kayak to avoid cops.

Gerard Hayslop, 26, is on the run after skipping bail following his conviction for downloading child porn.

He phoned dad Gerard Snr to say he had paddled from Jersey and was in Lyon desperately needing cash.

Hayslop is thought to have made the crossing with lover Louise Howarth-Lee, 20.

Cops have been looking for a couple who vanished from a Jersey campsite after hiring kayaks last month.

They now think they may have been Hayslop and Howarth-Lee. A sea search was launched at the time.

The names they left with resort staff — Andrew Keeble and Hannah Tye — are thought to have been false.

Gerard Snr, of Burnley, Lancs. said: "I told him to hand himself in."

Hayslop was convicted of making indecent images at Burnley Crown Court. But he failed to appear in court on August 3.

Austrian charged with sexually abusing Cambodian boys

PHNOM PENH, Sept 18, 2007 (AFP) - An Austrian man has been arrested and charged with sexually abusing three Cambodian teenage boys, court officials said Tuesday.

Olaf Achleitner, reported in local media as being aged 64, faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted, deputy court prosecutor Sok Karyal told AFP.

Achleitner, who was arrested in Cambodia for sex crimes in 2002 but released because of lack of evidence, was detained Friday after relatives of the three boys filed complaints with the police, Sok Karyal said.

Court officials did not give any details, but they said Achleitner has been charged with debauchery, a Cambodian legal term covering a range of sex crimes.

Cambodia has struggled to shed its reputation as a haven for paedophiles, putting dozens of foreigners in jail for child sex crimes or deporting them to face trial in their home countries since 2003.

At least 10 foreigners were arrested last year in a widespread crackdown on paedophiles, doubling the total number detained in 2005.
