30 Million Child Abuse Images Recovered, 77 Suspects Charged
by Alexander Smith  Jul 29 2016

LONDON — Around 30 million images of child abuse have been recovered as part of a crackdown by police in Scotland, officials announced Friday.

The six-week operation between June and July identified some 500 victims or “potential victims” aged between 3 and 18, and resulted in 77 people being charged, Police Scotland said in a statement.
“”Online child sexual abuse is not a victimless crime””

The suspects face a total of more than 390 charges between them. These include rape, sharing indecent images of children, grooming for sexual purposes, sexual extortion, indecent communication with children, possession of a firearm, bestiality, and drugs offences.

The investigation — named operation LATTISE — involved cops scouring more than 100,000 chat-room logs.

“Online child sexual abuse is a national threat,” Police Scotland Assistant Chief Constable Malcolm Graham said in the statement. “The reality is it is happening now, not only in Scotland but across the world, to children of all ages, from infants to teenagers.”….

Malawi’ President Mutharika to ban ritual sex abuse

An HIV-positive Malawian man, who says he is paid to have sex with children as part of initiation rites, has been arrested on the president’s orders.

Malawian ‘hyena man’ arrested for having sex with children
26 July 2016 Africa
An HIV-positive Malawian man, who says he is paid to have sex with children as part of initiation rites, has been arrested on the president’s orders.

Eric Aniva, a sex worker known in Malawi as a “hyena”, was the subject of a BBC feature last week.

He told the BBC that he did not mention his HIV status to those who hire him.

President Peter Mutharika said the police should investigate and charge him over the cases of defilement he had seemingly confessed to.

The BBC’s Ed Butler, who covered the story about Malawi’s sexual “cleansing practices”, says in some remote southern regions of the country it is traditional for girls to be made to have sex with a man after their first menstruation.

Some of the girls are as young as 12 years old, he reported.

The man employed to have sex with teenage girls
21 July 2016

In some remote regions of Malawi, it’s traditional for parents to employ a man to have sex with their daughter when she reaches puberty.

The act is not seen by village elders as rape, but a form of ritual “cleansing”. It is potentially a way of spreading sexually transmitted diseases, though.

The men are known as hyenas – Eric Aniva is one of them.

Dundee charity reveals terrible toll of ritual sexual abuse, Notorious cult leader and sex attacker Little Pebble to be released on bail

Dundee charity reveals terrible toll of ritual sexual abuse
By Dave Lord, 16 November 2014
A Scottish charity has warned that local children as young as five are suffering systematic and brutal sexual abuse.

Izzy’s Promise fear that many cases, some of which are carried out as part of gruesome rituals, are going unreported due to a pervasive culture of fear.

The charity, which is based in Dundee, said it receives numerous calls relating to grotesque sexual crimes.

Project co-ordinator, Joseph Lumbasi, told The Courier many young victims are too terrified to speak out at the time of their horrific ordeals, instead reporting abuse only when they reach adulthood.

Mr Lumbasi also claimed that some of the calls received by the charity relate to violent ceremonies and ritual abuse.

He said that traditional religious festival periods, including Easter and Christmas, see the highest frequency of such cases….

Notorious cult leader and sex attacker Little Pebble to be released on bail November 12, 2014
NSW cult leader and convicted sex attacker William “Little Pebble” Kamm is set to walk free from Long Bay jail in Sydney’s south-east after being granted parole.

The German-born 64-year-old, who was convicted in 2005 of carrying out a number of assaults on two 15-year-old girls, was given early release with 11 months still to run on his maximum 10-year sentence….

The attacks were carried out while he ran a pseudo-Catholic cult known as the Order of St Charbel, based in a compound in Nowra, NSW.

Kamm claimed the Virgin Mary had appeared in a vision and told him one of the girls was meant to be one of his brides.

He claimed he had been divinely ordained as a “new Abraham” and would become the patriarch of a new blessed race….

The Order of St Charbel is not regarded by the Catholic Church as part of its hierarchy, and Kamm himself was excommunicated in 2003 after he was illicitly ordained a bishop.

Incredibly Moving Photo Book Documents Child Sexual Abuse in South Africa
DL Cade · May 22, 2014
Editor’s Note: None of the images in this post are graphic, but the content and captions might be upsetting to some.

Photographer Mariella Furrer has spent over a decade of her photographic career focusing on the latter, documenting the stories of the survivors and families of child sexual abuse in South Africa.

Those stories — told through her photography, through interviews, and sometimes even though victims’ artwork and poetry — come together in her 700-page book My Piece of Sky, a culmination of what might be called Furrer’s life’s work….

This photographic journey began for Furrer in 2002, when she was asked to shoot a story about infant rape in South Africa for Marie Claire. However, after realizing just how shockingly vast this problem was, she knew that a single magazine article wasn’t going to cut it.

Thus began a now 12-year-old project at the Johannesburg-based Teddy Bear Clinic for Abused Children, where she has recorded the harsh realities of child sexual abuse in incredibly raw and hard-to-stomach photographs that never reveal the children’s faces, but do a tremendous amount to further their cause and tell their stories….

A look into the heart of child sex abuse
May 21 2014 By Tanya Farber Cape Town

….On another page, but in the same orbit of horror, a young rape survivor’s legs bear the welts of lacerations she received during a satanic initiation ritual from when she was eight years old.

….But there are 700 pages in the book. And thousands upon thousands of cases in the country which both amplify one another but also mask the individual story behind each one.

Photojournalist Mariella Furrer, who captured images of child abuse in South Africa over a period of more than 10 years before publishing them herself in a book called My Piece of Sky, says it has been a personal journey.

Thirty years ago, she was a survivor of molestation by a stranger, and this made her all too aware of the impact it has on a child’s being.

“You lose your childhood really, your innocence is snatched away, and what little is left of that once-pure child is now being transformed into a sexual being, a child with knowledge of things way before her time,” she said….

‘Black magic’ sex abuse trial: Jury fail to reach a verdict
May 22, 2014 By Liz Keen
Prosecutors have been given two weeks to decide if they will seek a retrial at Cardiff Crown Court
‘Black magic’ wife Carolee Hickman and her husband, who deny abusing a Bridgend schoolgirl 40 years ago may face a second trial after a jury failed to reach a verdict in their case after more than six hours of deliberations.

Prosecutors have been given two weeks to decide if they will seek a retrial at Cardiff Crown Court.

The alleged victim, now 52, alleges she was sexually assaulted by Hickman and raped by her husband Albert Hickman in the 1970s at their home after threats of black magic and witchcraft petrified her into submission over a period of time.

The couple deny it, saying although they were each later jailed for offences against other children – information about which is available on the Internet – there was no incident in Bridgend….

Falmouth pagan pervert Petrauske refused appeal
Wednesday 21st May 2014 in Cornwall
A pervert involved in “ritualistic” sexual abuse of children as part of a witches’ coven has failed in a bid to challenge his convictions.

Peter Helmut Petrauske was jailed for 18 years at Truro Crown Court in December 2012, after being found guilty of indecent assault, aiding and abetting an attempt to rape and rape.

The 74-year-old, of Falmouth, yesterday (Tuesday) launched an attempt to have his convictions overturned at London’s Criminal Appeal Court.

He maintained his denials, saying he had never had any sexual interest in children and argued that evidence of his “bad character” should not have been disclosed to jurors at his trial, as it was “prejudicial” to his defence.

But his appeal was rejected by three of the country’s top judges, who said his trial was fair and his convictions “safe.”

Petrauske and his accomplice, 71-year-old Jack Kemp, also of Falmouth, were said to have worn ceremonial robes and had pagan paraphernalia when they abused girls in Cornwall during the 1970s.

Petrauske described himself as the high priest of a white witches’ coven in St Ives, west Cornwall….

Kemp was also found guilty of indecent assault and indecency with a child, and was jailed for 14 years….

Victim breaks 20-year silence over sex abuse only to be told he’d imagined it

Victim breaks 20-year silence over sex abuse only to be told he’d imagined it

Mar 23, 2014 By Gemma Aldridge

Simon Whitter reported his years of trauma but was told his children’s home had never existed

A brave victim broke his 20-year silence over sex abuse he suffered as a child – only to be told by authorities that he’d imagined it.

Simon Whitter, 40, was removed from his violent home by social services at the age of 12.

He was sent to Burton House children’s home in Manchester in 1986. There he was subjected to ritual sex abuse at the government-run home for boys.

Yet when in 2012 he finally reported his years of trauma, Manchester City Council claimed Burton House had never even existed.

In a shocking attempt to whitewash Simon’s history, they claimed documents had gone missing and there was no record of where he had lived. Only later did they admit their mistake and allow him to file for compensation.

Simon’s story is just one example of the hurdles that have had to be overcome by more than 400 victims of abuse in Manchester’s children’s homes.

The latest blow has been a High Court ruling that remaining victims must come forward in the next seven weeks or lose any chance of compensation.

This week Simon and another victim Paul Tyler, 49, returned to their children’s homes in a bid to encourage others to find justice.

Dad-of-three Simon said: “It took me over 20 years before I was ready to speak out and then they tried to silence me….

Claims of child abuse centre on three main homes run by the City Council – Rose Hill in Northenden, Broome House in Didsbury and Mobberley Boys in Knutsford. A total of 275 cases have so far been settled by Abney Garsden Solicitors for over £2million since the action started in 1997.

Several members of social services have been jailed for their involvement.

Among them was Ronald Hall, who rose to assistant director of social services.

He was jailed in 2001 for 11 years for the sexual and physical abuse of children at Broome House.

Simon says he was forced to perform sex acts from the age of 12. He says the effects of the abuse led him on a trail of destruction which culminated in a six-month prison sentence for alcohol-related offences.

“I had been forced to do things no child should endure and I know so many other people have been through the same thing,” he said. “The City Council just want to stop them coming forward to save money. It’s disgusting.”….
