Ernest Fenwick MacIntosh - Pedophile - Nova Scotia
« on: October 03, 2010, 10:06:53 PM »
I'm left speechless. And yet I don't know why I am so surprised and shocked. I should be used to this farce of Law Enforcement by now.

N.S. pedophile case deserves inquiry: group

Warning: This story contains graphic details from court testimony.

An organization that fights international child exploitation is demanding a public inquiry into why a pedophile was allowed to live in India for years while he was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant.

Rosalind Prober, co-founder of Beyond Borders, said Ernest Fenwick MacIntosh's case is a failure of the Canadian justice system.

"This case is so far off the radar screen in terms of incompetence by so many people that there has to be more done to find out what went wrong," she told CBC News.

Only a public inquiry will show who should be held accountable, Prober said.

MacIntosh was sentenced on Tuesday to four years in prison for sexually abusing two boys in Port Hawkesbury, N.S., in the 1970s, and faces three more accusers in March.

However, 12 years passed from the time the first victim came forward, in 1995, and when the RCMP extradited MacIntosh from India in 2007 to face the 36 charges laid against him.

MacIntosh's passport was renewed twice in that time, despite a Canada-wide warrant for his arrest.

Victim molested 100 times

One of MacIntosh's victims, whose identity is protected by a court order but who is referred to in court documents as D.S., told CBC News many mistakes were made along the way.

"There's no doubt in my mind whatsoever that he could have been brought home much sooner," D.S. said.

During the trial he testified he was sexually assaulted about 100 times in the early 1970s, starting when he was about nine and continuing until he was 12 or 13. MacIntosh, a friend of the family, would take D.S. on hunting trips and other outings, rubbing the boy's crotch and performing oral sex on him, D.S. said.

D.S. moved on with his life, but said he decided to come forward in 1995 because his wife works in child protection and he realized MacIntosh might be abusing other boys. He approached the RCMP in British Columbia., where he now lives.

By the time D.S. came forward, MacIntosh was working in India for California Microwave, an international supplier of microwave radios and telecommunications satellites.

He needed a passport to do his job, and got two renewals despite the warrant issued in 1996.

Gar Pardy, the director-general of Canada's Consular Affairs Bureau from 1992 to 2003, said he was made aware of MacIntosh's warrant, not by the RCMP but by D.S. himself.

Pardy said he contacted RCMP in Nova Scotia, and then the passport office became involved. MacIntosh was put on a passport control list and government embassies and high commissions overseas were warned about him in the fall of 1996.

"It is incumbent upon all our offices overseas when they receive an application for a passport or a renewal of a passport that they check to see whether the applicant is included on the passport control list," Pardy said. "Unfortunately, that did not happen and our office in New Delhi did issue a new passport to Mr. MacIntosh."

The passport was issued in May 1997, he said.

When Pardy's office learned that the passport had been issued, it asked Passport Canada to consider a revocation order to reclaim the passport, and the passport office obliged.

MacIntosh appealed the revocation and won. In his ruling, the judge noted that the Crown did not bring forward a copy of the arrest warrant.

"Why that kind of information did not go to the federal court judge? I'm bewildered because it was so basic to the issuance of the revocation order," Pardy said.

'Nobody was following the case'

In 2002, the passport was renewed again, "which suggests to me that certainly nobody was following the case in the Department of Justice with any degree of intensity," Pardy said.

Passport Canada turned down CBC's request for any information related to MacIntosh.

D.S. also told CBC News that MacIntosh had an apartment in Montreal and flew in and out of Canada freely despite the warrant. A cousin of D.S.'s ran into MacIntosh at an airport in Paris and, not realizing the charges against him, got his telephone number.

When D.S. learned about the encounter, he gave the RCMP MacIntosh's Montreal phone number.

D.S. followed up with the RCMP a week later, only to learn that the police had left a message for MacIntosh with somebody who answered the phone, asking him to call the RCMP. By the time the police went to his apartment, he had fled, D.S. says.

"What a bunch of dunces!," D.S. said. "I just started realizing that, you know, our system is a farce."

The RCMP always had the opportunity to extradite MacIntosh, but the case was delayed further because three years after the extradition process started, the Department of Justice informed the Crown that when somebody is extradited they can only face the charges for which they were extradited.

But by August 2001, eight more men had come forward with accusations against MacIntosh.

Delay 'quite disturbing'

Diane McGraw, the Crown prosecutor who recently took charge of the case, said part of the reason for the delay was that this was the first time the Canadian government had sought extradition of an individual from India, "so there was a bit of a learning curve as well in terms of what documentation India required [and] what form that documentation had to take."

Many of the complainants were also scattered across Canada, she said.

Pardy doesn't believe that justifies the multi-year delay. He says the long wait is "quite disturbing" and said it was fortunate the delay didn't force the judge to throw the charges out.

D.S. says he believes the only reason the case gained any traction was because he approached Conservative cabinet minister Peter MacKay of Nova Scotia, who asked the province's attorney general to extradite MacIntosh back to Canada.

Sleuth; this jerk only got 4 years, but he's heading back to court in February I believe it is, not sure, but he's being hit with a whole bunch more charges.  I have to check that out.  I know I put him on the Pedophiles in Nova Scotia thread.  Guess I need to update that he only got "a slap on the hand", however, it might end up he'll be going to court for years to come.  He's under lock and key right now, but credit for time served.  I can't see him ever get out when he faces the new list of charges.

MacIntosh appeal

By Greg MacLean. Last updated: 2011-06-09 09:18:50

THE APPEAL COURT OF NOVA SCOTIA HAS RESERVED ITS DECISION AFTER HEARING ARGUMENTS ON THE CONVICTION LAST JULY
OF A STRAIT AREA BUSINESSMAN ON 13 OF 26 SEX CHARGES.

THE COUNTS AGAINST ERNEST FENWICK MACINTOSH INCLUDED INDECENT ASSAULT AND GROSS INDECENCY. HIS LAWYER,
BRIAN CASEY, WANTS THE CONVICTIONS OVERTURNED, ARGUING THE TRIAL JUDGE GAVE TOO MUCH WEIGHT TO THE
COMPLAINANTS TESTIMONY. CASEY ALSO QUESTIONED THEIR CREDIBILITY. THE CROWN SAID THE TRIAL JUDGE FOUND
THE COMPLAINTANTS IN THE CONVICTIONS CREDIBLE, BUT DID NOT FEEL THE SAME WAY ABOUT MACINTOSH. THREE
COMPLAINANTS WERE INVOLVED, AND THE JUDGE REJECTED THE TESTIMONY OF ONE OF THEM, DISMISSING THE CHARGES
IN HIS CASE.

LAST MONTH MACINTOSH WAS SENTENCED TO 18 MONTHS IN A SEPERATE CASE ALSO INVOLVING BOYS IN THE 1970'S.
HE PLANS TO APPEAL THAT ONE AS WELL.

(I wish they'd throw him in jail and then throw away the key.)

MacIntosh released pending 2nd appeal

Ernest Fenwick MacIntosh has been released from jail while he prepares an appeal on a second set of convictions for sexually abusing boys in the 1970s.
The Nova Scotia Court of Appeal agreed to release the 68-year-old on Monday.
He must remain under house arrest and abide by a strict set of conditions, such as having no contact with anyone under the age of 14.
MacIntosh was convicted of sex crimes against young boys in eastern Nova Scotia in two separate trials.
He was sentenced to four years in jail after he was convicted on 13 counts of gross indecency and indecent assault last July. He was given two years' credit for time already spent in custody.
MacIntosh sought an appeal, arguing that there was conflicting testimony about a date. In October, a court agreed to release him from jail ahead of a second trial on similar charges.
In January, MacIntosh was found guilty on another two counts each of gross indecency and indecent assault. He was sentenced to 18 months in jail with no credit for time served.
RCMP in Nova Scotia received the complaints about the former Port Hawkesbury businessman more than 15 years ago.
MacIntosh was arrested in 2007 in India, where he worked as a telecommunications specialist for 13 years. He was extradited to Canada two months later.

Wendy; if I were you, I would send this story to (The Coast news source out of Dalhousie) .... also the Chronicle, and the Ottawa Citizen.  These media aren't afraid to run this story.  The have shown us so.  I do believe we are heading into a new realm of "reporting" as it's suppose to be. 

You will find much more under the Nova Scotia Pedophiles thread.

wendy-jo,

I am with lostinganer on this one...CALL the media and bring attention to it. Tell them your story.
This guy is a danger to have around and it always seems that he gets away with what he is doing.
I can't believe he is allowed internet connection, I thought he wasn't allowed access to internet?
If he is moving to Montreal then the Media in that area should have a heads up that he may be going to there also.

Actually, Wendy-jo, you never once used his name....and you posted the address YOU were superintendant at ...;)  (just so happens that the pervie also lives there).     Another thing, I think you could rightfully fight for your position as superintendant back.....I'm sure your boss broke some kind of law on firing you for speaking out with your concerns that people weren't notified.   
 My thinking is children deserve far more freedom that this dog.    Wonder how these very cops would like it if they had a pervie in their apt. bldg.  or  next door?
 I'd be wondering if your boss is normal....

DRS - Sadly our justice system continues to make victims out of the victims and shelter the offenders. In this type of crime, quite often the victim does not come forward or push forward to seek justice not just for him/herself but also other victims. I know that it is not easy to sit in a courtroom and relive such moments and the defence lawyers who make it the victims fault again and again. I commend your determination and passion to see that the guilty get what he deserves. It takes a very strong and brave person to do this. I can only hope that other victims of child abuse/molestation etc, can draw inspiration from you and take a stand against their tormentor and help get these pedo's off the street and behind bars. We all have a responsibility to keep "our" children safe.

There are some lawyers that will take a percentage of your financial win in a civil suit, often requiring just a small retainer. I am from the other side of the country so I am not able to toss any names out to you.
