Dublin priest says the “protection of human rights and the dignity of women and children is breaking down”
Ireland could soon be following Australia’s lead by becoming the first country in Europe to cancel passports of convicted pedophiles in a bid to prevent them to traveling overseas. The campaign championing this idea for Ireland is being led by Irish priest Father Shay Cullen, a four-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee who runs People’s Recovery, Empowerment and Development Assistance (PREDA), a child abuse charity in the Philippines.
Ireland is expected to introduce a draft of this new legislation later in October. It would mean that convicted pedophiles would be prohibited from traveling overseas.
Cullen, who was born in Dublin, said the introduction of legislation such as this would prevent registered sex offenders from traveling abroad. He also said this legislation would particularly benefit developing nations where sex tourism and child prostitution are major problems.
The victim told police that she feared Muna would kill her and her family if she reported the incident to police.
Guam – The police officer accused of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl will have to come up with $20,000 cash before he can be released from prison.
James Norbert Muna, 55, appeared in court today where he was charged with first and second degree criminal sexual conduct, both as first degree felonies.
A magistrate complaint alleges Muna sexually abuse the minor last month and again last weekend. However, Muna denied the allegations, saying the victim’s mother had previously accused him of sexually assaulting the minor. Police also say Muna threatened the victim and her family.
Tell you what, sicko, when I was a young adult, your indecent assault on my mind, body and soul made me silently question my sexuality. Rape was my debut sexual experience and, at times, it messed me up a little. I thought the rape was an ‘induction’ of sorts and it was, as unscriptural as it sounds, a ‘sign’ from God.
A good number of men who are rape victims – especially if it was their sex debut – silently wrestle with demons of sexual orientation. And it’s so easy to swing the gay
The Liverpool sister of a schoolgirl strangled by a notorious double child rapist and killer has slammed the decision to give him his first taste of freedom in 30 years.
Colin Pitchfork – the first criminal in the world to be convicted on DNA evidence – recently enjoyed a day trip out of prison.
The killer, a convicted flasher, targeted Lynda Mann for no reason, and three years later, he killed another 15-year-old girl, Dawn Ashworth, who was beaten, raped and strangled in a wooded area near a footpath in a carbon copy of Lynda’s killing. He has been locked up since 1988.
Now, the step to award Pitchfork his first day in the outside world has angered Rebecca Eastwood, from Netherley, Lynda’s sister.
High street giant Next has revealed its first fall in annual profits for eight years as it was hit by sliding sales and warned that 2017 is set to be “another tough year”.
The retailer posted a 3.8% fall in underlying pre-tax profits to £790.2 million for the year to January – the first fall in profits since 2008/09 at the height of the financial crisis.
Next confirmed it had hiked prices by 4% on average for the first half of the year and warned prices would remain under pressure in the second half from rising buying costs caused by the Brexit-hit pound.

The 40-year-old British actor portrays Animal Control worker Seth who is obsessed with a waitress called Holly (Ksenia Solo) in the psychological horror and he re-visited texts about killers like Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer to prepare for the part.
In an interview with the Metro newspaper, he said: “Without wanting to sound too creepy, I am interested in serial killers. In my teens I started reading about Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer and people. So I re-read a few books and isolated myself – I made sure I wasn’t really seeing friends. Then, once we started filming, I said to Ksenia Solo, who plays Holly, the girl my character Seth is obsessed with, that if she wanted to hang out
A piece of proposed legislation in New Hampshire was reportedly introduced with the intention of protecting against wrongful convictions, but opponents are saying it will protect pedophiles and sexual predators.
According to local news reports, lawmakers held a hearing on Tuesday on a proposed bill that was designed to protect against wrongful convictions in sexual assault cases. The bill requires victims of sexual assault to corroborate their allegations if the accused has no prior convictions. However, the bill does provide a definition of corroboration.
The bill was introduced in the aftermath of the conviction of Foad Afshar, a New Hampshire psychotherapist who a jury found guilty of molesting an underage client during an appointment. Afshar claims he was wrongfully convicted.
Opponents of the bill appeared at the hearing and denounced the proposal. The harshest criticism appears to have come from a police sergeant from a department
A 24-year-old Norwegian man has been sentenced to prison for three years and eights months for his role in the huge pedophile network that police uncovered after a lengthy investigation. He already faced charges of sexually assaulting several minors and is among the 51 men charged so far in the case police call “Dark Room.”
Newspaper Bergens Tidende reported that the sentence was two months less than prosecutors had requested. It was the police investigation into the 24-year-old’s alleged assaults, one of them reported by the mother of a victim, that led police to uncover what’s believed to be the largest pedophile networks in Norwegian history.
When police went through computer files seized from the 24-year-old when he was arrested last year, they discovered large amounts of material depicting assaults against children. They also found chat logs that showed he had contact with others in the same networks. He had,
