Short version some hunting the paedophiles. Is this 21st Century version of Alcapone. They could not get gim for the big stuff. So they went for what stuck.

“The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Abuse has heard Ronald Thomas, now 77, habitually and violently abused boys when he was a young music teacher at Hobart’s elite Hutchins School in the late 1960s. Former Tasmanian police chief Richard McCreadie has given evidence that Thomas confessed to child abuse in 1970, but fled to South Africa days before he could be arrested, forcing an end to the investigation.The commission, which has focused its Tasmanian hearings on allegations of a paedophile ring of up to eight teachers at the establishment school in the 1960s, believed Mr Thomas had died, naming him on that basis. However, The Australian yesterday found Mr Thomas alive and reflecting on a “happy and productive life” — including more than four decades teaching in New Zealand — as he shares his autumn years with a same-sex partner in quiet North Island dairy country”.
Mr Thomas yesterday denied the allegations, made in sworn evidence to the commission, of sexual abuse levelled by two former students of the Anglican boys’ school.He also denied making any confession or admission to police when interviewed in 1970, as claimed under oath by Mr McCreadie. Rather than fleeing to South Africa, Mr Thomas said he took a long-planned teaching job in Western Samoa, linked to the World Council of Churches, leaving the school at the conclusion of the 1970 school year.
Child migrants kept being trafficked from the UK to Australia despite officials knowing that some institutions they were sent to harboured paedophile rings, a UK inquiry has been told.Margaret Humphreys of the Child Migrants Trust told the child sexual abuse inquiry in London that recruiters were sent to the UK to select children for church and charity-run farm schools in Australia.
“I think we would categorise that now as child trafficking,” she said on Friday. The inquiry is examining the sexual, physical and emotional abuse suffered by thousands of children in care who were sent to Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Rhodesia up to the 1970s.
Among the worst offenders were the Catholic order the Christian Brothers who ran farm schools in Western Australia and the royals-backed Fairbridge Society which ran farm schools in NSW. Child migrants kept being trafficked from the UK to Australia despite officials knowing that some institutions they were sent to harboured pedophile rings, a UK inquiry has been told.

The sting, dubbed Operation Elysium, was launched on the eve of the G20 in Hamburg, throwing the global summit into disarray after key members of at least two European delegations were held by police.

The Phonm Phen Post in Cambdia reports were security intelligence “deep cover operatives”, using an apparently legit cover anti-pedophile NGO. “They use cult followers for expendable deep ops. Sanders uses cults, criminals,
high-level politicians, family members for deep cover intel work, trained by Chamblerlain
“Extremely dubious,” said Mike Bush (Now Commissioner Bush) , police liaison officer at the New Zealand Embassy, Bangkok.
“They are not wanted for any crime but I would definitely like to have a meeting with them about certain matters that I cannot discuss with the media. Because they are New Zealanders I personally have an interest in whether their motives are genuine. Only time will tell if they are credible and legitimate.”
