Amazon.com continues to claim First Amendment grounds for its sale and promotion of a book advocating adult-child sex but has removed an e-mail link to a self-proclaimed pedophile amid mounting pressure organized by a non-profit legal action group in California.Last week, WND reported that Amazon.com has been accused by the United States Justice Foundation of “contributing to the potential rape and molestation of children” through its online sale of “Understanding Loved Boys and Boylovers,” by David L. Riegel, who has responded to questions submitted by WND.

The USJF has given Amazon 30 days to remove the book from its site or face “protracted litigation.”

Meanwhile, a search by WorldNetDaily of other pedophile-related books sold by the Seattle-based Internet retailer turned up a title apparently published by the North American Man-Boy Love Association called “Loving Boys.”

In another development, the USJF has filed a criminal complaint against Amazon.com with the Seattle Police Department. Also, in one of many boycotts undertaken by groups and private citizens, a publisher has canceled its arrangement with the bookseller.

After WND broke the story last week, Philadelphia’s NBC TV affiliate took a camera to the post office box of Riegel’s locally-based publisher SafeHaven Press and informed the mail clerk of the company’s distribution of pro-pedophile books, according to USJF litigation counsel Richard Ackerman. The clerk expressed disbelief and opened the mailbox, discovering that the only item in the box was a check to SafeHaven from Amazon.com.

SafeHaven Press has an affiliated Web discussion forum operated by Riegel “about responsible intergenerational relationships between males.”

Right to choose

Amazon.com has issued a statement emphasizing that it does not endorse “Understanding Boys and Boylovers,” but insists that “people have the right to choose their own reading material.”

The bookseller says, “Our goal is to support freedom of expression and to provide customers with the broadest selection possible so they can find, discover, and buy any title they might be seeking.”

Ackerman says Amazon can be prosecuted for unethical behavior under California’s unfair business practice laws.

“I was honestly hoping, against all reason, that they would do the right thing and simply take this off their site,” Ackerman told WND. “And so I guess what’s going to have to happen from here on out is that we’ll go to every possible source. If I have to go to [Attorney General John] Ashcroft, I will.”

Seattle police Sgt. Brian Johnson, who oversees the department’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, said he has not been informed of Ackerman’s complaint.

He promised to research the issue with his legal department, but said that so far every one of his previous investigations has entailed actual images of child pornography.

“There is not much we have done with written words,” Johnson told WND. “There is so much of the other stuff out there.”

Regarding a case such as Amazon’s, “a lot of it depends on the city, whether it’s something they would want to pursue,” he said. “My personal thought is, probably not.”

In a letter faxed to Amazon CEO Jeffrey Bezos Sept. 25, Ackerman pointed out that beneath a description of the book was a customer review that linked to the e-mail address of a man who described himself as a pedophile. The reviewer said he found Riegel’s book “to be enlightening in my quest to truly come to terms with my own sexuality.”

Since then, the link to the e-mail address – which began with “minrfiend” – has been removed, though the review remains.

Ackerman said he was unaware of this development.

“I wish they would have told me that,” he said of Amazon. “I’ve gotten no response from them, none.”

“It’s very saddening,” he continued, “because they’ve hidden behind the First Amendment to justify what they are doing and yet they don’t have the moral courage to actually respond to us.”

Ackerman noted that Amazon declined an offer to join him in his appearance on the Fox News program “The O’Reilly Factor” last Friday.

WND’s call to an Amazon spokesperson yesterday was not returned.

NAMBLA on Amazon

The book, according to Amazon, published by the North American Man-Boy Love Association was written by the late Edward Brongersma, a member of the Dutch Senate who went to prison for sexual contact with an under-aged boy. Later, Brongersma returned to public office and helped repeal the Netherlands’ age of consent law.

For many years, he was on the editorial board of Paidika: The Journal of Paedophilia, the Dutch-based advocate of adult-child sex.

In his book “Loving Boys” – which, according to other sources, has been published by Global Academic Publishers – Brongersma “eschews both the common Judeo-Christian belief that man-boy contacts are morally wrong and the traditional psychiatric premise (never honestly tested) that they are unnatural, perverted and harmful for boys.”

Brongersma co-edited a book also carried by Amazon.com called “Male Intergenerational Intimacy: Historical, Socio-Psychological, and Legal Perspectives.”

That book is one of a growing body of material that purportedly makes an academic and scientific case for acceptance of sexual relationships between adults and children. Earlier this year, the University of Minnesota Press published Judith Levine’s “Harmful to Minors: The Perils of Protecting Children from Sex,” which seeks to challenge “widespread anxieties” about pedophilia.

Riegel, noting the emergence of “landmark studies and papers” in the past 10 years, said that Levine’s book probably would not have been published by a university press “even as recently as two or three years ago.”

In his book, Riegel espouses “responsible boylove,” which, he maintains, has nothing to do with molestation and abuse.

In an e-mail response to questions by WND, Riegel claimed that “fear, ignorance and intolerance” are at the roots of the public’s “misunderstanding” about men involved in sexual relationships with boys.

“Understanding can only come about through dialogue,” he told WND. “And dialogue is what people like Ackerman, [Pro-Family Law Center’s Scott] Lively, and a host of other self proclaimed ‘moral’ crusaders, are afraid of. They do not subscribe to Voltaire’s ‘I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.’ Their motto is ‘I disagree with what you say, and I will silence you one way or another.'”

Ackerman said, “My question for Mr. Riegel is, having been a victim of this stuff myself, I’d like him to openly come out in the public and talk about whether the First Amendment protects his right to engage in this type of authorship and promotion of, in my opinion, moral filth.”

Ackerman argues that society has accepted that there are limits to free speech.

“We don’t apply that same standard to hate speech, or hate crimes,” he said. “We certainly don’t apply that standard to plotting the violent overthrow of the United States government.”

Boycott

In an e-mail response to a complaint about the book by a Texas-based group called Hands Off Our Kids, or HOOK, Amazon.com employee John Cameron wrote:

“Please know that, contrary to rumors that have been circulating around the Internet, this book is not a ‘how-to’ manual for molesting children. The author simply expresses his point of view about what he feels are ‘misunderstood’ relationships between men and boys.”

But Ackerman believes Amazon has a responsibility to protect children from materials that expressly advocate what he and mainstream society – including businesses like Amazon.com – consider dangerous ideas.

“Exposing a child to the idea that they should be part of a ‘misunderstood’ relationship is as offensive as taking the boy to the back of a soccer field and explaining the exact same thing to him,” Ackerman said.

Last week, Davidson Press informed WND that it will no longer sell its books on Amazon.com. The publisher of Bibles and related materials posted its new policy “within minutes” of reading WND’s story last week, said Editor Charles Welty.

Author John Culea, a former TV anchorman who has three books on Amazon’s site, decided to sever his relationship with the online retailer after hearing about the controversy last week on the San Diego-based Roger Hedgecock talk radio program. Culea also requested that Amazon remove Riegel’s book, which he calls “a smoke screen for pedophilia.”

Ackerman’s group has posted an online petition at a website called Conservative Petitions.com. The petition has been forwarded by fax or e-mail to Amazon by over 1,200 people. Ackerman said, however, that the petition drive has not been fully launched yet and expects many more responses when Conservative Petitions alerts its list of about half a million people.

The issue also has been taken up by groups such as Focus on the Family and the Traditional Values Coalition. Ackerman says also he plans to take the issue to the American Family Association, which has the resources and network to launch a massive boycott drive.

On Friday, Kim Vandiver, founding director of Hands Off Our Kids, warned Amazon that it will promote a broad boycott through its constituency if the company does not remove “this filth, which is not only immoral, but a danger to the children we, as a society, and that includes corporations, have a duty to protect.”

After receiving Amazon’s standard reply, Vandiver wrote back, stating, “I do not appreciate receiving a form letter filled with rhetoric from Amazon.com on such an important issue. It does, however, indicate that Amazon.com does not take this boycott seriously and is not willing to work for the public good.”

A third reply to Vandiver assured her that her previous correspondence had been considered, but said, “Please understand that the information provided in our last message correctly represents our policy at this time.”

“I can’t imagine that Amazon.com wants to come into the holiday season facing this,” Ackerman said, “and I will do whatever I can to make sure this blows up in their face right in the prime of holiday shopping. I’m not going to let them get away with this

Issues in Pedophilia

It might start in a chat room.  A 13 year-old girl meets a 18 year-old boy from another state. They talk and compare school, parents, and life.  He tells her she’s very mature for her age and how glad he is to have met her.  They talk again and again.  He convinces her that she’s really not appreciated by her family and it’s obvious to him that her parents prefer her sister.  It’s OK though, because she has him.  They switch to phone calls.  He knows when to call her when she can talk alone.  He convinces her they should meet.  She has a two-day swim meet in another town and he says he’ll meet her there.  The team spends the night in a hotel and she is in a room with 3 other girls.  He parents came to the meet and are staying in the same hotel.  He calls her and tells he, too, has taken a room in the hotel.  Since her parents are there, they have to be careful.  Could she come to his room at 10:00?  She tells her friend where she’s going and leaves.  The friend becomes fearful and decides to call her  mom.  The mom calls hotel security and when they get to the room, instead of an 18 year old boy, they find a 43 year-old man with their 13-year old daughter.  Now this may seem far-fetched to many parents and teachers.  The girl was an honor student, cheerleader, champion swimmer, and seemed to have plenty of friends.  She was not the kind of girl one would expect to fall prey to this sort of man.  However, kids are not always what we see on the surface.  During their teen years they face peer pressure to fit in, insecurities about who they are, and an intense desire to be liked.

Following are some of the results found in a survey of 5,001 youths which was co-authored by David Finkelhor, the director of the Crimes Against Children Research Center at the University of New Hampshire, which teamed with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children on the study.

Online Victimization: A Report on the Nation’s Youth released in 2001 found that:

  • One in five teens who regularly hang out on the Net have run into a stranger who suggested cybersex.  In 75% of the occurrences, the teen brushed the offender off.
  • One in thirty-three received aggressive online solicitation, where they were asked to meet, was called on the phone, or received mail or gifts.
  • One in four children last year were subject to undesired exposure of photos of people having sex or of naked people.  This was true even in the 33% of the households that used Internet blocking software.
  • One in 17 of the children last year received threats, including those where they were threatened with harm to friends or family.
  • 66% of those reporting a sexual advance were female.
  • 70% of incidents happened while the youngster was on a home computer.
  • 65% occurred while in a chat room; 24% came by instant message.
  • 29% of kids told a friend or sibling; 24% told a parent.
  • 25% reported at least one unwanted exposure to sexual pictures.

The report warns that simple cautions such as “Don’t talk to strangers” are unrealistic. Such cautions also are likely to go unheeded, especially by older teens, which are targeted most often by online sexual solicitors: 77% of kids propositioned were 14 or older. ( Tech Report http://www.usatoday.com/life/cyber/tech/cti055.htm  and Protecting Children Online http://itmatters.com.ph/column/yam_07192001.html )

The above statistics stand on their own to represent the enormity of the problem before us. As more and more homes are connected to the Internet, more children are subject to these kinds of dangers.

Seorang Pedophilia Perkosa Anak Kecil

source :  – detikinet
 

Toronto – Seorang laki-laki asal Kanada berhasil ditangkap polisi usai ketahuan memperkosa seorang bocah kecil. Parahnya pelecehan seksual itu berlangsung live di Internet via webcam dan disaksikan seorang polisi yang sedang menyamar sebagai pedophilia. Kaget, begitu ekspresi polisi saat melihat pelecehan seks terhadap gadis kecil yang belum sekolah itu. “Saat saya melihatnya, jantung saya langsung berdebar kencang dan saya serasa mau muntah,” tutur Detective Constable Paul Krawczyk kepada para wartawan. Krawczyk adalah salah seorang anggota dari Unit Eksploitasi Anak Toronto, yang bertugas memata-matai pedophilia di Internet. Tim Krawczyk langsung menjajaki keberadaan tersangka. Dalam waktu dua jam, polisi berhasil menemukan dan membekuk tersangka di rumahnya di St Thomas, tempat kejadian perkara (TKP) berlangsung, sekitar 200km sebelah barat daya Toronto. Demikian dilansir iol.co.za dan dikutip detikINET, Senin (6/11/2006). Dituturkan Krawczyk, dirinya menginvestigasi tersangka lewat chatroom. Setelah tersangka percaya bahwa Krawczyk seorang pedophilia, tersangka pun terpancing mengirimkan foto-foto terkait pornografi anak. Polisi mendakwa pria itu dengan 11 tuduhan yang berhubungan dengan pelecehan seksual dan pornografi anak, dan akan diadili Kamis ini. Polisi sendiri sengaja menyembunyikan identitas tersangka demi melindungi bocah malang yang saat ini sudah aman bersama anggota keluarganya. (dwn) ( dwn / dwn )

Report: Pedophilia more common among ‘gays’

 

Research purports to reveal ‘dark side’ of homosexual culture


source : http://www.worldnetdaily.com/

Child molestation and pedophilia occur far more commonly among homosexuals than among heterosexuals on a per capita basis, according to a new study.

“Overwhelming evidence supports the belief that homosexuality is a sexual deviancy often accompanied by disorders that have dire consequences for our culture,” wrote Steve Baldwin in, “Child Molestation and the Homosexual Movement,” soon to be published by the Regent University Law Review.

Baldwin is the executive director of the Council for National Policy in Washington, D.C.

“It is difficult to convey the dark side of the homosexual culture without appearing harsh,” wrote Baldwin. “However, it is time to acknowledge that homosexual behavior threatens the foundation of Western civilization – the nuclear family.”

Though the homosexual community and much of the media scoff at such accusations, Baldwin – who chaired the California Assembly’s Education committee, where he fought against support for the homosexual agenda in the state’s public schools – says in his report that homosexual activists’ “efforts to target children both for their own sexual pleasure and to enlarge the homosexual movement” constitute an “unmistakable” attack on “the family unit.”

Baldwin’s research is substantiated in a recently completed body of work written by Dr. Judith Reisman, president of the Institute for Media Education and author of numerous authoritative books debunking sexual myths, including “Kinsey, Crimes & Consequences.”

In her thesis – also written for the Regent University Law Review – Reisman cited psychologist Eugene Abel, whose research found that homosexuals “sexually molest young boys with an incidence that is occurring from five times greater than the molestation of girls. …”

Abel also found that non-incarcerated “child molesters admitted from 23.4 to 281.7 acts per offender … whose targets were males.”

“The rate of homosexual versus heterosexual child sexual abuse is staggering,” said Reisman, who was the principal investigator for an $800,000 Justice Department grant studying child pornography and violence. “Abel’s data of 150.2 boys abused per male homosexual offender finds no equal (yet) in heterosexual violations of 19.8 girls.”

Jay Heavener, spokesman for PFLAG – Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, counters that federal crime data refute claims that homosexuals molest children at higher rates than heterosexuals.

“According to data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), this claim is false,” he told WND by e-mail. “The gay and lesbian community calls into question any dubious research which flies in the face of our own experience.”

And Gary Schoener, a clinical psychologist who has been diagnosing and treating clergy abuse for 28 years, told Salon.com, “There are far more heterosexual cases than homosexual.”

In terms of sheer numbers, that may be true. But in terms of numbers of children abused per offender, homosexuals abuse with far greater frequency; and boys, research shows, are the much-preferred target.

Baldwin says evidence he examined disproves the assertion that child molestation is more prevalent among heterosexuals. Both he and Reisman found that media coverage of adult homosexual abuse of minors is also slanted.

“The National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) recently boasted that although homosexuals are less than two percent of the population, three-fourths of the people who decide the content of the front page of the New York Times are homosexual,” Reisman wrote.

That one fact is especially noteworthy, experts point out, given the recent child sex scandals taking place within the American Catholic church.

A survey by WorldNetDaily of recent news reports found that rarely did the media describe priestly sexual abuse as “homosexual” or “gay” activity – even though the worst incidents involved male-to-male contact, and a spate of investigative reports has revealed that the Vatican is concerned about an upsurge of homosexuals in seminary schools throughout the world.

Gay press promotes sex with children

Baldwin says his research not only “confirms that homosexuals molest children at a rate vastly higher than heterosexuals,” but it found that “the mainstream homosexual culture” even “commonly promotes sex with children.”

“The editorial board of the leading pedophile academic journal, Paidika, is dominated by prominent homosexual scholars such as San Francisco State University professor John DeCecco, who happens to edit the Journal of Homosexuality,” Baldwin wrote.

During his research, he also found:

 

  • The Journal of Homosexuality recently published a special double-issue entitled, “Male Intergenerational Intimacy,” containing many articles portraying sex between men and minor boys as loving relationships. One article said parents should look upon the pedophile who loves their son “not as a rival or competitor, not as a theft of their property, but as a partner in the boy’s upbringing, someone to be welcomed into their home.” 
  • In 1995 the homosexual magazine “Guide” said, “We can be proud that the gay movement has been home to the few voices who have had the courage to say out loud that children are naturally sexual” and “deserve the right to sexual expression with whoever they choose. …” The article went on to say: “Instead of fearing being labeled pedophiles, we must proudly proclaim that sex is good, including children’s sexuality … we must do it for the children’s sake.” 
  • Larry Kramer, the founder of ACT-UP, a noted homosexual activist group, wrote in his book, “Report from the Holocaust: The Making of an AIDS Activist”: “In those instances where children do have sex with their homosexual elders, be they teachers or anyone else, I submit that often, very often, the child desires the activity, and perhaps even solicits it.” 
  • In a study of advertisements in the influential homosexual newspaper, The Advocate, Reisman found ads for a “Penetrable Boy Doll … available in three provocative positions. She also found that the number of erotic boy images in each issue of The Advocate averaged 14. 
  • Homosexual newspapers and travel publications advertise prominently for countries where boy prostitution is heavy, such as Burma, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Thailand.

Homosexuality ‘youth-oriented’?

“Research on the homosexual lifestyle confirms it is almost exclusively a youth-oriented culture,” Baldwin wrote. “Very few gays exhibit preference for older men.”

“Some admit to focus on teenage boys,” he said, “some on prepubescent boys, and many cross over between categories.”

A 1988 study detailed in Baldwin’s report found that most pedophiles even consider themselves to be “gay.” According to the study, “Archives of Sexual Behavior,” some 86 percent of pedophiles described themselves as homosexual or bisexual. Also, the study found, the number of teenage male prostitutes who identify as homosexuals has risen from 10 percent to 60 percent in the past 15 years.

When asked what he thought about critics who attempt to debunk his research, Baldwin said the results speak for themselves.

“For them to say this theory is false is to call many of the homosexual movement’s leaders liars,” he said. “Most of my evidence comes right from the gay community.”

“I managed to find enough evidence that my thesis – child molestation is an integral part of the homosexual movement – is a valid thesis,” Baldwin told WorldNetDaily.

Other experts have also found a distinct pattern between child sex abusers and the incidence of homosexuality.

“How long can psychologists be in denial about the significance of the dark side, and ignore what it implies about the homosexual condition? And there’s a matter of even greater concern. How long will psychologists eagerly throw open the door to gay life for every sexually confused teenager?” writes Joseph Nicolosi, Ph.D, on behalf of NARTH – the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality – a group that says it exists to “provide psychological understanding of the cause, treatment and behavior patterns associated with homosexuality, within the boundaries of a civil public dialogue.”

The North American Man-Boy Love Association, or NAMBLA, is “a group that openly promotes sex with minor boys and claims that boy-lovers respond to the needs of the boys they love,” Baldwin said in his report.

The group is often endorsed by “many of the homosexual movement’s most prominent leaders,” he said.

Advocacy moving to schools

Promotion of the “gay and lesbian lifestyle” is increasing in the nation’s public schools.

A WND survey of homosexual-oriented websites found that almost every group has some sort of program to “educate” teachers, school administrators and other school employees about the homosexual lifestyle:

 

Though most school-related programs are sold to administrators and parents as programs designed simply to end persecution of homosexuals and lesbians, none disclose what Baldwin says is compelling evidence that homosexuality is harmful to children.

“What … does the academic literature say about the relationship between homosexuality and child molestation? Quite a bit, actually,” he wrote, quoting data compiled by the Family Research Institute: “Scientific studies confirm a strong pedophilic predisposition among homosexuals.”

The institute, after reviewing more than 19 studies and peer-reviewed reports in a 1985 “Psychological Reports” article, found that homosexuals account for between 25 and 40 percent of all child molestation.

“But this number is low,” Baldwin says, “due to the fact that many reporters will not report if a child molester is a homosexual, even if he knows that to be the case

NEWS AND REPORT : SEX ABUSE & PEDOPHILIA IN INDONESIA

Ketua International Criminal Investigative Training Asistence Program (ICITAP) Robert Barlow mengatakan, Bali dan beberapa wilayah lain di Indonesia, tercatat sebagai daerah rawan aksi pedofilia.
Dari data yang berhasil dikumpulkan ICITAP, tercatat sebanyak 318 upaya dilakukan para pedofil untuk dapat mengontak anak-anak di bawah umur di Indonesia, kata Barlow di Denpasar, Kamis (13/04).
Ketika bertemu dengan Kapolda Bali Irjen Pol Sunarko DA, Barlow menyebutkan, terkait cukup maraknya aksi tersebut, pihaknya siap membantu tugas-tugas Polri, baik dalam upaya pelacakan para pelaku maupun jaringan yang selama ini dipakai.
Menurut Barlow, para pelaku aksi yang telah mengekploitasi anak-anak di bawah umur tersebut, selama ini diketahui memakai jaringan dunia maya dalam menjerat calon korbannya di Indonesia, termasuk Bali.
Sehubungan dengan itu, Barlow meminta jajaran Polda Bali untuk lebih meningkatkan kewaspadaan dan daya lacaknya terhadap aksi cybert crime (CC) dan human trapicking (HT) yang dilancarkan para penjahat.
Kapolda Sunarko mengakui kalau aksi pedofilia yakni kejahatn seksual terhadap anak-anak di bawah umur, belakangan ini cukup marak di Pulau Dewata.
“Beberapa pelaku untuk kasus itu, telah berhasil kita ringkus. Terakhir, kita tangkap seorang warga negara Australia,” ujar Sunarko.
Paul Thomson (57), seorang pedofil asal Australia, ditangkap di daerah Jimbaran pada Pebruari lalu, setelah petugas mendapat informasi dari Kepolisian Australia (AFP) yang menyebutkan bahwa penduduk Perth itu adalah pelaku kejahatan yang selama ini menjadi buronan.
Thomson diburu pihak AFP setelah di negaranya terungkap sebagai pelaku aksi pedofilia, yakni kejahatan seksual terhadap anak-anak di bawah umur.
Diperoleh keterangan bahwa Thomson telah cukup lama berada di Pulau Dewata dengan bekerja sebagai tenaga pengajar atau pelatih di bidang olahraga cricket di kampus Universitas Udayana (Unud) Denpasar.
Setelah dilakukan pemeriksaan yang cukup, ketika itu juga Thomson dideportasikan ke negaranya lewat Bandara Ngurah Rai Bali.

Australian pedophile Philip Robert Grandfield jailed in Bali

SOURCE : http://www.news.com.au

AN Australian who had sex with teenage boys in Bali says he’s happy with his eight-year jail term because he’d feared the death penalty.

Philip Robert Grandfield, 62, had sexual contact with five boys, aged 16 and 17, over a six-month period last year, while he was living in Buleleng, north Bali.

He was convicted in an Indonesian court today under the country’s child protection laws.

A smiling Grandfield later told journalists his jail term had come as a relief.

“I am very happy,” he said in mixed English and Indonesian.

“I was expecting that this is Indonesia, I thought I might be executed to death, because of the Indonesian press (coverage of the case).”

Despite this, Grandfield told the Singaraja District Court he would appeal against his sentence.

During his trial, the retired accountant said the boys had voluntarily engaged in sexual contact with him.

He claimed he had relationships with the boys and did not realise they were underage.

But the court’s chief judge Srida Aryani dismissed the claims.

She said Grandfield had been “proven officially and convincingly guilty of committing a crime to deliberately persuade children to participate in lewd conduct, and to engage in nudity with other people of the same sex who are not adults”.

Describing Grandfield’s actions as immoral, she said the Australian had destroyed his victims’ future and created unease in the community.

In sentencing him to eight years jail, and a fine of 60 million rupiah (A$7750) or an additional three months behind bars, she took into account Grandfield’s age, confession, expression of regret and promise not to reoffend.

Appearing healthy and in good spirits, Grandfield seemed to have recovered from a hunger strike that forced the cancellation of the verdict hearing earlier this week.

His lawyer said the Australian had been on a week-long hunger strike at Singaraja Prison, where he has been held since his arrest last August.

Prosecutors, who wanted Grandfield jailed for 12 years, said they would consider an appeal.

Grandfield had been living in a villa in Buleleng, Singaraja, a remote and poor part of Bali, some three-and-a-half hours by road from the capital Denpasar.

He is one of several Australians arrested in Indonesia in recent years for pedophilia.

Child protection agencies report that a growing number of pedophiles from Australia, Europe and the US are travelling to Bali to abuse children.

They gain the trust of impoverished families with gifts of money, food and toys, and sponsorship of education.

Australian pedophile gets 8 years

sources : The Jakarta Post ,  Thu, 02/26/2009 6:52 PM 

The Singaraja District Court in Bali has sentenced Australian Philip Robert to serve eight years in jail for engaging in pedophile acts, tempointeraktif.com reports.

During Robert’s trial Thursday, judge Frida Ariyani said the court had found the 61-year-old defendant guilty of sexually violating dozens of teenagers in Singaraja.

The case unfolded when local police received reports from some of the abuse victims in August last year.

The court said Robert, who has been living in Singaraja since 1999, was luring the teenagers by inviting them to play billiards at his home. He would then give them between Rp 25,000 (US$2.2) and Rp 30,000 for any child who was willing to perform oral sex.

Robert said he would file an appeal against the verdict. (ewd)

Mark Andrew Austin comment, Well Outside the RI thanks

A drip in the ocean. Buleleng (where this all happened) is pedophile grand central, but the police do nothing normally of course, so this guy was set up, almost certainly by the “boys” or their families. There exist documented reports of pedophiles in this same area and guess what the Singaraja police do? That’s right, they accept complaints of criminal libel by said alleged pedophiles against the people who name them!

Never mind all the evidence these likely perverts are ruining the lives of young children, in Indonesia the criminals have protection! You want to see how bad the problem is? Just Google “Lovina Pedophile”. By the way, if you happen across the Sydney Morning Herald article while doing this and see the comments by one Silvia Binder, I understand she has now had to leave or rather flee her home and business because of what she said about the Singaraja police in this respect.
