How Malaysia allows child abuse to go unpunished    Mon Nov 14, 2016
By A. Ananthalakshmi | KUALA LUMPUR

Most complaints of child sexual abuse in Malaysia do not lead to successful prosecutions, largely due to weaknesses in the nation’s criminal justice system, police, lawmakers and child welfare groups say.

According to classified data Malaysian police compiled and shared with Reuters, 12,987 cases of child sexual abuse were reported to police between January 2012 and July of this year. Charges were filed in 2,189 cases, resulting in just 140 convictions.

The data doesn’t show how many people were involved, or what happened in the cases where there were no convictions after charges were filed. No details were disclosed in the cases where there were convictions.

Child rights advocates have long pushed the government to publicly disclose data on child sexual abuse to increase awareness so action can be taken to address what they call a growing problem.

A veil was lifted in June when a British court handed Richard Huckle 22 life sentences for abusing up to 200 babies and children, mostly in Malaysia, and sharing images of his crimes on the dark web.

The reason the Malaysian government doesn’t publish child sexual abuse data is because it is protected under Malaysia’s Official Secrets Act. The government provides data on child abuse only at the request of a member of parliament….

CRIMINAL JUSTICE WEAKNESS

Weak policing and child protection laws make it difficult to punish child abusers in Malaysia, leading to inadequate investigations and low convictions on the reported cases, according to officials and child welfare groups Reuters interviewed.

They also say a significant number of child sexual abuse cases are never reported because of taboos around child sex abuse and mistrust of authorities.

In 17 years of operation, PS the Children, Malaysia’s biggest NGO dealing with child abuse, has seen zero convictions on the cases it has handled, its founder Madeleine Yong told Reuters…..

THE DARK WEB

Foreign pedophiles could be targeting Malaysia as other countries around the region strengthen child protection laws and step up enforcement, some experts said.

Snow White Smelser, program officer at the child sex offences team in the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime’s (UNODC) East Asia headquarters in Bangkok, said pedophiles compare notes and share information online about countries, where they can operate most freely….

Typically, children are sexually abused by someone they know – a neighbor, a relative, a caregiver, or someone like Huckle, who according to court testimony groomed children in an impoverished ethnic Indian neighborhood in Kuala Lumpur.

But increasingly, pedophile activity is moving into the online world, police say.

Australian detectives who investigate pedophiles in the region believe Malaysia has become one of Southeast Asia’s biggest centers for the transmission of child pornography on the Internet.

Team Argos, the Australian detective unit that found Huckle in the dark web in late 2014, made a startling discovery from the team’s scouring of online pedophile networks: the unusual number of internet addresses in the Kuala Lumpur area transmitting child sexual abuse material from the dark web.

The dark web is a vast virtual space within the Internet, which requires special encryption tools to access.

The Brisbane, Australia-based detectives found 1,000 transmissions of child pornographic materials from the Malaysian capital over a 24-hour period last year, according to Argos data provided by the UNODC.

It was the second-largest transmission location in Southeast Asia after Bangkok’s 1,800 – Bangkok’s population of 8.2 million is more than four times that of Kuala Lumpur’s….

BROKEN HOMES
By Linton Besser, Poppy Stockell, Elise Worthington
November 14, 2016

These are Australia’s most vulnerable kids, betrayed and neglected, not only by their parents but by the system designed to protect them.

They’re known as ‘resi kids’ after the group homes they live in, run by private operators and charities. Some were taken into care as babies, others after years of abuse. They’re often difficult to manage but desperately in need of help.

In this searing Four Corners investigation, we reveal that rather than protecting and nurturing these children, some private operators are treating them as badly as the families they escaped.

“What I can’t wrap my head around is why children are removed because they’re neglected, only to end up being a teenager in a resi house still neglected.” Child Protection Worker

It’s prompted some in the child protection system to brand their treatment a national failure and call for the entire resi care system to be shut down….

Jury hands ex-Penn State assistant $7M in defamation case
Oct 27, 2016  By TRAVIS JOHNSON Associated Press

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) – A jury awarded a former Penn State assistant football coach $7.3 million in damages Thursday, finding the university defamed him after it became public that his testimony helped prosecutors charge Jerry Sandusky with child molestation.

Jurors deliberated for about four hours in Mike McQueary’s defamation and misrepresentation lawsuit.

Judge Thomas Gavin still must decide McQueary’s whistleblower claim that he was treated unfairly as the school suspended him from coaching duties, placed him on paid administrative leave, barred him from team facilities and then did not renew his contract shortly after he testified at Sandusky’s 2012 trial.

McQueary remained stoic as the verdict was read, and he and his lawyers made no comment as they left the courthouse.

A Penn State spokesman said the university would not comment on the case and the jury’s verdict until a final decision is rendered on all counts.

McQueary had been seeking more than $4 million in lost wages and other damages, saying he was defamed by a statement the school president released the day Sandusky was charged, retaliated against for helping with the Sandusky investigation and misled by school administrators.

Jurors awarded him $1.15 million on the defamation claim and $1.15 million on the misrepresentation allegation that two administrators lied to him when they said they took his report of Sandusky seriously and would respond appropriately. They also awarded $5 million in punitive damages.

Sandusky, a former defensive coach at Penn State, was convicted of sexual abuse of 10 boys and is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence. He maintains his innocence….

Parole denied for convicted Manson follower Charles ‘Tex’ Watson
by Matt Hamilton October 27, 2016

A California review board denied parole Thursday to Charles “Tex” Watson, the self-described right-hand man of Charles Manson and a key figure in the Manson family’s 1969 killing spree in the Los Angeles area.

Watson, 70, was initially sentenced to die in San Quentin’s gas chamber for his part in the murder of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others. In 1973, his sentence was commuted to life in prison after the state Supreme Court ruled that the death penalty was unconstitutional….

Watson was convicted of joining other Manson followers in the Aug. 9, 1969, massacre of five people including Tate, who was married to director Roman Polanski….

Prosecutors said Manson and his followers — based out of the Spahn Ranch commune in Chatsworth — were trying to incite a race war that the cult leader believed was foretold in the Beatles’ song “Helter Skelter.”

At Watson’s most recent parole hearing in 2011, Deputy Dist. Atty. Patrick Sequeira called Watson the leader of the rampage at Polanski’s home; he had announced to the victims: “I am the devil. I am here to do the devil’s business.”

“His role within the family was a significant one,” Sequeira said. “He was essentially the main hit man…. These weren’t impulsive actions. Murdering seven people on two subsequent nights were not impulsive actions.”….

Inside the sick world of paedophile Grant Davies’ and his creepy interests
October 28, 2016….

Grant Davies, incarcerated in Silverwater remand centre as a prison committee decides which correctional facility he will spend the next 18 years, took thousands of photographs of his students.

Insisting on girls as young as seven be dressed in skimpy and clingy outfits and painted with showgirl style make-up, Davies adopted the guise of cheeky prankster….

Evidence was given during his trial that the girls’ mother sent Davies sexually explicit photos of her daughters to advance their careers.

Jailed in 2014 for doing so, the mother later said that Davies ran the business “like a cult” and promised her daughters they would be “stars”….

One of Davies’ former dance students, now in her 20s, has since revealed children as young as three had to wear crop tops and shorts which barely covered their private parts.

Girls were banned from wearing bras, and students were told to wear a G-string or no underwear at all.

But only some of the girls knew the truth behind their teacher’s jovial exteriors, the man who behind closed doors touched their genital and breast areas, or in one case engaged in anal penetration.

One of the sisters who featured in photographs and videos in Davies child pornography collection later told the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Abuse that she thought Davies would make her a star.

“I didn’t want to do the videos and photos but I thought that was the only way I would become a professional dancer,” she said….

Opened in 2002, by at least January 2003 the studio became a place of hope and misery for children desperate to be dance stars to the point they were subjected to molestation under threat….

He sexually assaulted them at RG Dance’s Chiswick studio, at his home and at various locations around Sydney and the state where he conducted private dance classes.

Davies was so trusted by one girls’ family, he would come to dinner, even though he was regularly abusing her.

In 2007, police seized Davies’ computer following a complaint that had sent very young girls sexually explicit text messages about masturbation and told them of his sexual fantasies.

But the investigation was dropped….

In May 2013, a friend of Davies’ sister alerted Davies’ schoolteacher wife to the fact he had child pornography on his laptop….

Dance teachers and mother complained that they “all knew” about Davies, but previous attempts to have him arrested had failed.

In sentencing Davies to a maximum 24 years’ prison, with an 18 year minimum, Justice Jennie Girdham said he used a “pattern of conduct and groomed the children for sexual exploitation”.

“He constantly found new victims,” she said.

Grant Davies’ next 18 years will predominantly be in his “jail of sentence”, beginning in maximum security….

Inside China’s secret brainwashing centres: ‘People only see what the government wants them to see’

September 19, 2016

FROM the outside it looks like any other holiday village in China.

But hidden inside one of the region’s picturesque mountains is a dark and forbidding ‘brainwashing centre’ where government officials routinely carry out horrific acts of abuse and torture on Falun Gong practitioners.


Falun Gong – a spiritual meditation based on the guiding principles of “truth, compassion and tolerance” – was outlawed as a “dangerous cult” by the ruling Communist party in 1999 because of its popularity.

The Chinese government has been mercilessly persecuting Falun Gong practitioners ever since by torturing, killing and locking them up in ‘black jails’ — a network of extra-legal labour camps and detention centres established by the Communist Party to detain citizens without charge or conviction.

Detainees who don’t agree upon arrest to change their beliefs are sent to brainwashing centres for “re-education” where they are immersed in propaganda and brutally tortured physically and psychologically until they sign a waiver renouncing their beliefs. It’s a government-run system so secret it doesn’t even officially exist. The goal: To wipe out Falun Gong.

Some of those who escaped persecution and resettled in Australia after being granted refugee status have shared their shocking stories with news.com.au in a bid to expose the scale and severity of the human rights abuses in China and help bring them to an end….

Inside the mountain, Mr Liu lived in a tiny, pitch-black cell. He was let out only to be subjected to brainwashing techniques and torture.

“They force you to watch the videos that defame Falun Gong,” Mr Liu said. “The videos use false cases or take the words out of the context to defame Falun Gong teachers or books….

According to witnesses the centres are often disguised as institutions including schools and detention centres or tucked away out of sight in suburban areas.

Some victims have reported being shocked with electric batons, hung up by their wrists, stretched by their limbs until they break, and left in agonising pain for days as they are abused and taunted by guards, who promise that the torture will end if they simply give up their spiritual beliefs….

Falun Gong practitioner Xiao Chen, 43, was sent to a brainwashing centre during a three-and-a-half-year stint in a forced labour camp where she was tortured for refusing to renounce her beliefs. She was imprisoned without charge or conviction and torn from her baby son.

Ms Chen said officials put inmates through an intensive program of mental and physical torture that included beatings, prolonged interrogations, sleep deprivation and continuous exposure to video and audio propaganda.

“If we still refused to recant, we were sent to an isolated room,” Ms Chen said.

“In the isolation room, you could not see the sunlight outside and we were forced to watch brainwashing videos against Falun Gong.

“We would spend the whole day inside, being brainwashed, forced to watch videos, punished by squatting and being deprived of sleep, for extended periods of time.

“They would not allow us to take any showers or anything for many days…..

Extreme torture: Inside China’s correctional facilities September 19, 2016
Megan Palin
WARNING: Disturbing content.

JINTAO Liu’s body shuddered in pain as he endured yet another day of extreme torture.

He had woken to pins being pushed into his nails before he was forced to stand still in a yard for some 18 hours. If he moved, he was beaten viciously and within an inch of his life.

Each excruciating second of the gruelling punishment caused his legs to swell as his body threatened to buckle under the pressure. He was given “no toilet breaks”, and shown no mercy. Time had become his enemy — but not his worst.

That was a typical day for Mr Liu during a lengthy stint in a series of Beijing detention centres and labour camps between 2006 and 2009.

There, he was subjected to electric shocks, medical tests, forced feedings, beatings, violent sexual assaults and other barbaric forms of torture designed by prison guards to humiliate and inflict maximum pain.

But it was one particularly savage punishment that etched the deepest psychological scar on Mr Liu.

“The incident which marked me the most was when they, four of (the prison guards), stripped me of my clothes, and used the toilet brush to pierce my anus, saying that they would pierce until I turned homosexual,” Mr Liu told news.com.au.

“They pulled my pubic hairs and played with my genitals.”

His only ‘crime’ was to practice Falun Gong, a spiritual meditation based on the guiding principles of “truth, compassion and tolerance”.

But perhaps just as shocking is that the Chinese government has been carrying out these human rights atrocities — including forced organ removal for harvesting purposes — on innocent citizens and convicted criminals for the best part of the past two decades. And it’s still happening today….

The reality of human organ harvesting in China
September 19, 2016
WARNING: Disturbing content

IMAGINE being abducted and whisked away to a cell where you spend the next several months or years without charge or conviction.

There, authorities torture you and force you to watch films designed to brainwash in a bid to align your views with those of China’s ruling Communist Party.

Every now and then you are dragged from your filthy, overcrowded cell into a room where, without warning, needles are jabbed into your arm and blood is drawn into as many vials as it can fill. Then prison authorities instruct a group of drug addicted criminals to use violence to restrain you as you are made to give a urine sample and subjected to invasive medical procedures.

No one responds to your screams or cries for help. No explanation is offered. The process is repeated regularly.

You might make it out alive after years of enduring the brutal treatment. Or you might be secretly executed.

There’s also a strong chance you might die on the operating table after surgeons sedate you and start removing organs from your body, one by one — while you’re still alive.

The government will say that you simply disappeared or that you were never there to begin with. But it’ll most likely say nothing at all.

Meanwhile, wealthy people will file into purpose-built hospitals for lifesaving organ transplants. The selection of human kidneys, livers and other organs is vast. That’s because thousands of people have been slaughtered to put them there. Organ harvesting is a lucrative business for the Chinese government.

That is the reality for thousands of Chinese citizens who have reportedly been subjected to forced medical testing for the purposes of organ harvesting for the best part of the past two decades.

China’s Communist Party continues to commit human rights atrocities on political prisoners in detention centres, labour camps and prisons across the country, according to reports.

No one is safe under the Communist Party’s regime but Falun Gong — a spiritual meditation based on the guiding principles of “truth, compassion and tolerance” — practitioners are the main targets.

The Chinese government banned the Falun Gong in 1999 and has been mercilessly persecuting, torturing, killing and locking them up in “black jails” — a network of extra-legal labour camps and detention centres established by the Communist Party to detain citizens without charge or conviction.,,,

‘THERE ARE NO FORMAL LAWS PROHIBITING THE ORGAN HARVESTING’

Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH) performs systematic research into the reports of state-sanctioned forced organ harvesting in China from prisoners of conscience.

DAFOH Australia spokeswoman Sophia Bryskine said the organisation was “particularly focused on China because, unlike anywhere else in the world, it is the only place where systematic forced organ harvesting continues to occur on a mass, state-sanctioned level”.

“There are no formal laws prohibiting the practice,” Dr Bryskine said….

Ramsey Investigators’ Secret Trip To Asia
September 19, 2016
By Rick Sallinger

BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – This year marks 20 years since JonBenet Ramsey was murdered in her home in Boulder. Now CBS4 has learned of a secret trip made to Asia by investigators early on in the case.

The trip was to visit the manufacturer of the underwear worn by the 6-year-old girl when she was killed.

If there is a clue that could solve this disturbing murder mystery it may be as simple and complex and three letters, DNA. Small spots of blood from a still unknown person was found in JonBenet’s underwear. Did it come from the killer? Or did it come from somewhere else like from those who made the items?….

So the Boulder District Attorney’s office sent investigators to southeast Asia to the undisclosed country where the underwear was made. But Grant says the trip did not pay off as hoped….

What has been determined is that the DNA found on JonBenet’s clothing, including a later sample that was discovered and tested, did not match anyone in her family. Based on that in 2008, Lacy exonerated JonBenet’s parents and brother Burke. In fact, no match has ever been found with anyone….

Choreographer Wade Robson Claims Michael Jackson Ran ‘Sophisticated’ Child Abuse Operation
The Australian has filed to amend his 2013 lawsuit against the pop icon.
09/15/2016
Julia Brucculieri Entertainment Writer, The Huffington Post

Celebrity choreographer Wade Robson, who has accused Michael Jackson of molestation, is seeking to pursue further negligence claims against two companies formerly controlled by the pop star. He claims the businesses aided in running a “child sexual abuse operation.”

Robson has filed to amend his 2013 lawsuit against MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures, in which he accused the late music icon of molesting him between 1990 and 1997. The case was thrown out by a Los Angeles judge in 2015.

In the complaint, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Robson claims via lawyer Vince Finlandi, “MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures were held out to the public to be businesses dedicated to creating and distributing multimedia entertainment by Michael Jackson, however, in fact, they actually served dual purposes.”

It continues: “The thinly-veiled, covert second purpose of these businesses was to operate as a child sexual abuse operation, specifically designed to locate, attract, lure and seduce child sexual abuse victims…..

Court upholds sentence given to rabbi in voyeurism case
Thursday, September 15, 2016
Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — An appeals court has upheld an approximately 6 ½-year sentence given to a once-prominent Orthodox rabbi who pleaded guilty to secretly videotaping nude women at a Jewish ritual bath in Washington….

Freundel was arrested in 2014 after one of his recording devices was discovered at the National Capital Mikvah in Washington.

Prosecutors found he filmed some 150 women using recording devices hidden in a clock radio, a fan and a tissue box holder. He ultimately took a plea deal in the case, acknowledging that he made the secret recordings from 2009 to 2014.

The Real Impact of Child Abuse on Life Span
A past history of abuse and trauma can have a significant impact on a person’s well-being and longevity. By Pam Peeke, M.D.  Sept. 15, 2016

….new science is prompting doctors and other health professionals to take note of the impact of child abuse on long-term health and survival. In one recent, revealing study, scientists evaluated national survey data to determine the mortality rate of 6,300 people over the course of 20 years. The group was mostly white, roughly split between men and women, and had completed a questionnaire detailing any history of child abuse. At the end of the study, the average age of survivors was 47 years. The researchers controlled for other mitigating factors that could impact their findings, including socioeconomic status or mental health disorders.

The study’s findings were striking, particularly for women. Female subjects who reported having experienced physical abuse were 58 percent more likely to die from all causes during the study period. Women who were emotionally abused were 22 percent more likely to die during the observed 20 years. Men who had a history of child abuse did not experience any impact on overall mortality rates.

….A child subjected to ongoing abuse desperately seeks comfort from the pain. Food is the most common and accessible form of reward to neutralize the angst. But using food to self-soothe can lead to overeating, bingeing and weight gain well into adulthood, with its subsequent and serious medical consequences. Harvard researchers examined the relationship between child abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder and addictive eating, which is defined as the overconsumption of processed food products and is associated with a loss of control as well as shame, blame and guilt. Studying more than 40,000 women from the Nurses’ Health Study, an ongoing health assessment study, the team led by women’s health expert Susan Mason (who is now on faculty at the University of Minnesota) found that a history of severe physical or sexual abuse was associated with an astonishing 90 percent increase in addictive eating behavior as a self-soothing coping mechanism. In a related study, Mason found women who exhibited the most PTSD symptoms, and for whom trauma (including parental divorce and bullying) or abuse began at an earlier age, were twice as likely to struggle with addictive eating. In this study, the type of trauma or abuse didn’t matter.

In a previous groundbreaking study supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, researchers investigated the prevalence of child abuse in 17,000 Kaiser Permanente health plan members. Led by Dr. Vincent Felliti, an expert in childhood trauma and abuse who founded the department of preventive medicine for Kaiser Permanente in San Diego, researchers reported that they found “a strong graded relationship between the breadth of exposure to abuse or household dysfunction during childhood and multiple risk factors for several of the leading causes of death in adults.” The research team created the Adverse Childhood Experience, or ACE, questionnaire, which is one of the most valuable evaluation tools used by clinicians and investigators today. ACE questions relate to an individual’s first 18 years of life, and document the presence of any form of abuse and neglect; domestic violence; family member substance abuse, criminal history and mental illness; and parental relationship challenges, including separation and divorce….

As the number of ACEs increased, so did the risk for a wide spectrum of grave mental and physical medical conditions. These included alcoholism, smoking and drug abuse; depression; heart disease; obesity; poor work performance and academic achievement; sexual promiscuity; domestic partner violence; and suicide attempts….
