The Azimuth Trust was a charity that took children with special educational needs on sailing holidays off the coast of Devon and Cornwall. It was founded by Paedophile Information Exchange member Dr. Morris Fraser, and was used as a front for a paedophile ring “with international connections” to abuse boys. Naked photographs were taken of the boys which were published in the Azimuth Trust’s magazine and sold to other paedophiles.
Dr. Morris Fraser was linked to fellow PIE members Peter Righton and Charles Napier, and was part of a powerful paedophile network that preyed on vulnerable children in schools and children’s homes across the UK. The Azimuth Trust featured in the BBC documemtary about Peter Righton, ‘The Secret Life of a Paedophile‘.
Fraser and the Azimuth Trust were also “heavily linked” to Ecole en Bateau, a French ‘boat schools’ scheme that was also being run as a front for a paedophile ring. Ecole en Bateau was founded in 1969 by Leonid Kameneff. THe case eventually came to court this year after a delay of 19 years. Kameneff was found guilty of the rape and sexual assault of children under 15 years old, and was sentenced last month to 12 years in prison. The case didn’t make the UK papers, but you can read a report in French here
Apart from the obvious similarities betwen the two organisations, Dr, Morris Fraser was a child psychiatrist, and Leonid Kameneff was a child psychotherapist, and both used their professional status as a cover for abusing children. This connection between paedophiles in England and France was very likely to have been established via the Paedophile Information Exchange’s contacts page.
Dr. Morris Fraser worked as a child psychiatrist in Belfast in the 1970s at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children. The Kincora Boys Home paedophile ring was operating throughout the 1970s. To date his name has never come up in connection with Kincora, but it would come as no surprise if the current police investigation found that he was involved. He was a career paedophile and had been investigated for offences against children as early as 1973, as part of a paedophile ring abusing boys in a house in New York.
