Material was seized from the West London home of Robert Kearns, scoutmaster from Baden-Powells scouts who admitted conspiracy to commit buggery and indecent assault on boys in the Baden Powell Scouts’ Association. (He got 4 yrs 15 months in 1998 for the abuse of a 13 yr old).
The investigation, jointly carried out by police and the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, spanned five police forces, included Holland, France, Spain and Belgium, and uncovered a vast library of child pornography…
..One of the videos seized showed a boy sobbing as he was first tortured with electrodes and then further abused.
Sounds familiar, reminded me of this awful video with electrodes.
“By 1990, these two clubs on Spuistraat – together with Boys for Men, De Boys, the Blue Boy and the Why Not – had become the busiest watering hole in the international paedophile jungle. Dutch police at the time estimated there were 250 paedophiles involved in the production of child pornography in Amsterdam with an unknown floating population of child sex tourists from all over the world. A Swiss businessman, for example, was caught in the city with handcuffs, a gag and a large suitcase with airholes in the side; police found a video of him abusing two young girls with electrodes. A wealthy New York attorney was caught ferrying child pornography from Asia. But it was the British who formed the hard core of the new industry: Stephen Smith, who had helped to found the Paedophile Information Exchange, fled there to avoid imprisonment in England; Russell Tricker, now aged 58, a former private school teacher who was convicted of child-sex offences in the UK, moved to Amsterdam, where he used his job as a coach-driver to ferry suitable boys from London; Tricker’s friend, John Broomhall, opened a porn shop on Spuistraat and was caught with more than a thousand copies of videos of under-aged boys; Mark Enfield, now aged 41, sold a video of himself abusing a drugged boy; Andrew Prichodsky, now aged 50, jumped bail in England on the eve of his third trial for child sex offences.
Also mentions medical examinations again here:
“The court was shown a video tape of a sobbing 12-year-old Scout being tied and gagged by Kearns. The youngster was subjected to medical examinations and had electrodes attached..”
Also intimidation/attempting pervert course justice by Kearn’s male lover:
“Kearn’s male lover, John Reed (78), of west London, pleaded guilty to attempting to pervert the course of justice in relation to intimidating the witness. The judge adjourned his sentence until October 9 for reports.”
