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….

Brad Pitt cleared of wrongdoing after child abuse investigation

By Sandra Gonzalez, Chloe Melas and Lisa France
Thu November 10, 2016 CNN

Actor Brad Pitt has been cleared of wrongdoing by officials after a child abuse investigation.
A source familiar with the situation told CNN on Wednesday that Pitt has been cleared by the Los Angeles County Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS) in its investigation of an alleged incident of abuse involving Pitt and one of his children.

The accusation stemmed from an incident on a private plane in September — occurring one day before Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt after two years of marriage.
At the time, a source with knowledge of the situation told CNN that Pitt was “taking this very seriously” and had cooperated with authorities…

Cult or Commune? How Utopian Communities Turn Dangerous
From religious factions of the 1840s to the Buddahfield community profiled in this year’s ‘Holy Hell,’ a look at how a community can cross a line
By Elizabeth Yuko  November 10, 2016

In 1985, 22-year-old aspiring filmmaker Will Allen joined a community called Buddhafield at the suggestion of his sister, after his family didn’t accept him when he came out as gay. For 22 years, Allen documented life inside the cult as their videographer. The resulting 35 hours of footage comprises the basis of the documentary Holy Hell, which provides audiences with an intimate look at life inside this non-traditional community.

In the beginning, at least, it appeared that Buddhafield was attempting to revive the 19th-century concept of a Utopian community: a group of people living together working towards enlightenment. The leader, Michel Rostand, kept his followers focused on healthy living (no alcohol, drugs, caffeine or red meat, along with mandatory exercise), abstaining from sex and meditating frequently.

The group appeared to be a positive force on its members – yet the documentary tells a story of sexual, psychological and emotional abuse that allegedly took place behind-the-scenes at Buddhafield. On the surface, it looked like Allen found his place in a group of happy, healthy, like-minded individuals – but underneath, the community had problematic secrets….

What’s the difference between a group of people that live and work together to achieve well-being, and a full-fledged cult?….

Yet communes, for many, evoke the potential for groups to become more controlling and sinister in nature. Many of the most notorious cults in America started in the mid-20th century yet remain vividly in the public consciousness because of their bizarre and sometimes violent practices. These groups originated as offshoots of established religions or were influenced by social and civil movements. For example the Branch Davidians and the Children of God – formed in 1955 and 1968, respectively – both have their roots in Christianity, but because of deceptive and charismatic leaders, they devolved into cults. In 1993, more than 80 people died during the Branch Davidians’ standoff with the FBI in Waco, Texas, and the Children of God – also known as the Family – not only believed having sex with children was permissible, they claimed it was a divine right. Other cults like the Manson Family and the Peoples Temple – infamous for the Jonestown massacre of 1978 which left 909 people dead – attracted members based on social and cultural beliefs. In the case of the Manson Family, it was the fringe idea of inciting a race war, while the People’s Temple drew more mainstream followers as a progressive organization advocating for civil rights….

….there are four important elements of mind control to consider when attempting to determine whether a group can be considered a cult. Known as the BITE Model, it takes into account the group’s control of an individual’s behavior, intellect, thoughts and emotions (hence BITE) and can be applied to anything from religions to terrorism organizations to cults.

The BITE model includes something Hassan calls the Influence Continuum, providing examples of healthy and constructive – and unhealthy and destructive – actions for individuals, leaders, organizations and relationships. The continuum indicates that a person free from influence has an authentic self, capable of critical thinking, free will and creativity. On the other end of the spectrum is an individual with a false identity whose actions are motivated by fear, guilt and obedience….

Marina Abramovic mention in Podesta emails sparks accusations of satanism
An email from the artist forwarded by Clinton’s campaign chief has been seized on by the right as proof that the Democratic candidate has links with the occult

Performance artist Marina Abramovic has become an unlikely source of fear for rightwing groups after her name was mentioned in the Podesta emails.
‘I face so much jealousy’: Marina Abramovic talks friends, enemies and fear

In a leaked email between Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, and his brother Tony Podesta, an invitation from Abramovic is forwarded. It reads: “I am so looking forward to the Spirit Cooking dinner at my place. Do you think you will be able to let me know if your brother is joining?”

The act of spirit cooking involves Abramovic using pig’s blood as a way of connecting with the spiritual world, to cook up thoughts rather than food. A video of the practice shows her writing various statements with the blood, such as “with a sharp knife cut deeply into your middle finger eat the pain”.

Abramovic is known, and lauded, for work that focuses on pain, blood and the relationship between the performer and the audience. Her work has won many awards, including the Golden Lion at Venice….

Abramovic spoke about the reaction today to Artnews. “I’m outraged, because this is taken completely out of my context,” she said. “It was just a normal dinner. It was actually just a normal menu, which I call spirit cooking. There was no blood, no anything else. We just call things funny names, that’s all.”

She also claimed that those referring to her body of work as satanic are mistaken. “My work is really more about spirituality and not anything else,” she said. “I’ve been doing my work for so long, and this is a misunderstanding. It’s absolutely outrageous and ridiculous … I mean, this world is really turning to hell. I am completely amazed, something is taken out of context for the purpose of winning. We are living in such a strange world.”

Jury hands ex-Penn State assistant $7M in defamation case, Parole denied for convicted Manson follower Charles ‘Tex’ Watson, Grant Davies incarcerated 18 years

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….

Rotherham child abuse charges: Eight guilty, Child abuse survivors call for £20m in compensation for victims, StopChildAbuse on Tumblr

Rotherham child abuse charges: Eight guilty

10/17/16
Eight men have been found guilty of 16 charges related to the sexual abuse of three girls in Rotherham between 1999 and 2003….

Det Ch Insp Martin Tate said they had committed “vile crimes”….

They “sexualised” their victims, some as young as 13, and subjected them to “degrading and violent” acts….

After the verdict, Det Ch Insp Martin Tate of South Yorkshire Police said the trial marked the culmination of three years investigative work by police, Rotherham Council and the Crown Prosecution Service into the calculated and organised sexual exploitation of young girls.

He said the verdicts were of “massive importance” to the victims, who suffered years of abuse….

Peter Mann, of Yorkshire and Humberside Crown Prosecution Service, paid tribute to the victims.

“In contrast to the courage and strength of the victims, these men’s actions are utterly abhorrent,” he said.

“They waged a campaign of sexual violence and intimidation against young girls in the Rotherham area 13 years ago.

“Sageer Hussain in particular took a leading role in befriending the young girls, and in the case of one victim, passed her on to his friends and other associates.”….

Child abuse survivors call for £20m in compensation for victims

17 October 2016

Survivors of historic child abuse are calling for a £20m compensation scheme to be set up for victims.

The proposed package includes a £10,000 payment to each of the 524 victims who came forward to the Historic Institutional Abuse Inquiry (HIA).

Some have claimed the payment could save the public purse millions, as opposed to going through the courts.

Details of the scheme were outlined on Monday by the Survivors and Victims of Institutional Abuse group (SAVIA)….

The HIA inquiry is examining allegations of child abuse in children’s homes and other residential institutions in Northern Ireland from 1922 to 1995.

It began its public evidence sessions at the former Banbridge Court House in January 2014 and is due to report to the Northern Ireland Executive in January 2017.
