E-cops rip off perv's mask
By JOHN LEICESTER, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PARIS -- He apparently travelled the world sexually abusing young boys, but remained unidentifiable -- until now.

Police in Europe have unscrambled digitally altered images found on the Internet to reveal the face of a man shown abusing boys in Vietnam and Cambodia.

Interpol released four reconstructed photos of the suspected pedophile yesterday in an unprecedented public appeal for help, hoping that someone, somewhere, will recognize the man whose identity and nationality remain a mystery.

The response has been encouraging: About 200 messages in just over 12 hours, Interpol said.

But the decision to unmask him is not without risk: Tipping criminals off to the techniques that police have at their disposal could also prompt them to better hide their identities.

Interpol said 12 boys, apparently ranging in age from 6 to early teens, appeared in about 200 photographs posted on the Internet. But the face of the man inflicting the abuse was disguised in a digital whirl.

Using techniques that neither they nor Interpol would discuss, German police produced identifiable images of the man from the original pictures. The reconstructed photos showed a white man who looked to be in his 30s, with uncombed short brown hair. One showed him wearing glasses, in another he smiled, and another showed that he has a hairy chest. Interpol posted the images on its website.

Anders Persson, a Swedish police officer seconded to Interpol's human trafficking unit who oversees its database of images of child abuse, said releasing the photos sent "a quite clear message" to criminals that they can be identified through web postings.

"We have a lot of responses and they are coming from all over the world," Persson said in a telephone interview.

Some of the responses included detailed information such as names and addresses, he said.

Interpol forwards detailed information to the countries concerned so police can check, Persson said.

Is Vietnam hard on pedophiles? Cambodia?

Canada is one of the few countries that will charge a person for international child sexual abuse, and charge them in Canada. But, BIG DEAL, if the sentences are lighter here than over seas, let them prosecute. These guys get nothing here...

I think the sentence are pretty harsh in Vietnam.  Gary Glitter is looking at facing a firing squad for having sex with girls under 13.

I think they are slow to charge people but when international attention is focused on a case I am sure they will act quickly.

Firing squad! Wow! I wonder if that will be on pay per view?

Gary Glitter? Where is that guy waiting?

Vietnam underage-sex arrest and conviction

In late 2005, Gary Glitter was arrested and charged with rape of under-aged girls. Early in 2006, he was convicted of committing obscene acts with minors and sentenced to imprisonment; he filed an appeal, but this was dismissed on June 15, 2006.

 Arrest and trial

On November 12, 2005, Gary Glitter fled his home, despite having applied for permanent residence in Vietnam. Three days later, he was arrested in Ho Chi Minh City while trying to board a flight to Thailand. Six girls and women in Vietnam, aged 11 to 23, admitted to having sex with Glitter; the age of consent in that country is eighteen.[12]

After his arrest, Glitter was turned over to provincial police from Ba Ria-Vung Tau and returned to Vung Tau and held on suspicion of having sex with two underage girls. Glitter was jailed throughout the criminal probe, which was completed on December 26, 2005. The charge of rape was dropped for, according to Glitter's lawyer, "lack of evidence", although the singer admitted that an eleven-year-old girl had slept in his bed. Glitter could have faced the death penalty by firing squad if convicted of child rape. After having received compensatory payments from Glitter, the families of the girls appealed to the courts for clemency for him.[13][14][15]

Glitter was tried on charges of committing obscene acts with two girls, aged 10 and 11, and could have faced up to fourteen years in prison if convicted. The trial opened on March 2, 2006 and ended the next day, upon which Glitter was found guilty as charged and sentenced to three years' imprisonment.[16][17][18][19][20]

He could be eligible for parole after serving one-third of his prison term, or one year, with credit for the four months he spent in jail from November 2005 to March 2006. Glitter's sentence includes mandatory deportation after serving his sentence and payment of 5M Vietnamese dong (US$315) to his victims' families.[21] Glitter continued to deny any wrongdoing, saying he believes he was framed by British tabloid newspapers.[22] He announced he planned to spend part of his sentence writing an autobiography, which he began during his pre-trial detention.


BBC interview

In May 2006, Gary Glitter gave his first interview in more than 8 years to BBC News. He denied doing anything wrong saying "to my knowledge I have not had sex with anyone under 18". He also said "I know the line to cross". When asked what he thought of adults having sex with children he said "It certainly is a crime ... I don't have the words, I would be very angry about that." He said he did not think too much about the future for now, other than winning his appeal. Glitter was criticized about his comments: Christine Beddoe, director of End Child Prostitution, Pornography and Trafficking, said that Glitter was trying to "minimize what he has done" and added "We must allow children to tell their story and not just have the words of Gadd."

In his interview Glitter said he was "not a paedophile" and as far as his music was concerned said "I felt after I left prison in England that maybe there was a slim chance I could put my life back on track and have a career, but after some time, the people that surrounded me, lawyers etc and managers, said: 'We don't think so, as the media have already made such a big deal about this'." He continued to blame the press for his downfall and called them "The worst enemy in the world", Glitter did not comment about his previous conviction for possession of child pornography several years earlier.[23]

In the week following the broadcast of the interview, the BBC received hundreds of complaints from viewers, but the network pointed out they had made it quite clear during the broadcast that Glitter had been convicted of the crimes and that "He was strongly challenged on his protestations of innocence".[24]

 Appeal

On 15 June 2006, the People's Supreme Court of Appeals heard Glitter's appeal for a reduced sentence in a closed hearing. The ruling by the three-judge panel was announced at around 10 am that day, with the appeal being rejected.[25][26] Glitter's appeal had been scheduled to begin 19 May 2006, but was postponed for unspecified reasons.[27][28] Although he remained calm throughout the 40 minute reading of the verdict, upon leaving the courthouse, he shouted angrily to reporters that there was "no justice here in Vietnam. They did not listen to the defence at all."[29]

Glitter's song "Rock and Roll (Part 2)" has previously been a staple at National Football League games, but following the loss of his appeal the NFL has asked teams to stop airing the song during games.[30]

On 7 February 2007 it was announced that his sentence had been reduced by three months.[31] His sentence will now conclude in August 2008.

oops.  I guess I was wrong.  I had heard somewhere that he was possibly going to get the death penalty, but he was only sentenced to 3 years imprisonment.  Looks like he paid off some of the victims families to get them to testify favorably for him.  Still, who would want to serve in a foreign jail as a convicted pedophile?

What a creep, he probably did buy his justice.

Being in a jail over there as a pedophile is probably a real bad experience. They don't get all the luxeries they get here.

Des, you are probably right. Do you recall in 1990 when those 2 people went to Brazil or Columbia to engage in some political revolution and we arrested and charged for kidnapping?

Even though they were doing bad deads, the Canadian governemnt tried so hard to bring them back even though the pair did not want too. Wonder what ever happened to them?
