Five found guilty in sex cult trial By Robin Turner, WalesOnline Mar 9 2011 The jury in the trial of five people accused of using a black magic influenced cult to sexually abuse children and young adults in Carmarthenshire has found five defendents guilty of 39 serious sex offences. At Swansea Crown Court, alleged cult leader Colin Batley, 48, was found guilty of 27 offences – including rape, buggery, indecency with children and causing prostitution. His wife, Elaine Batley, 47, was convicted of 5 offences, including indecency with a child and indecent assault. Shelly Millar, 35, was convicted of two counts of indecency with children. Jackie Marling, Batley’s lover, was convicted of five offences – including aiding and abeiting rape and indecency with a child. Peter Murphy QC, prosecuting, has alleged the four established their own religion – which preached free sex and was influenced by notorious English occultist Aleister Crowley.
The prosecution case is that the sex was established in members’ homes in the tranquil Cararthenshire town of Kidwelly and children and young adults brought there were abused. http://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/2011/03/09/five-found-guilty-in-sex-cult-trial-91466-28307889/
Kidwelly sex cult: Town unaware of ‘evil paedophile’ 9 March 2011
….As residents went about their daily life, they could not have imagined that Colin Batley, described as an “evil paedophile”, was running a satanic sex cult from his home. The self-styled high priest of the group, headed a paedophile ring run like a “quasi-religion”.
One victim, who was repeatedly abused by Batley, told how he treated women like slaves. Batley would wear a hood to abuse his victims.
Once in their grasp, he would call the children to his service by clicking his fingers….”It boils down to two words, shock and dismay,” says Geraint Thomas, Kidwelly Town Council town clerk.
“We didn’t realise anything untoward was happening in Kidwelly at the time. “It wasn’t until we read it in the paper that this unfortunate incident was occurring and the publicity we’re getting isn’t helping Kidwelly at the moment.”
