Extract from ‘Paedophiles to be treated as terrorists’, The Times 27th April 2014
“Sexual predators who download manuals on how to groom their victims will face the same sanctions as terrorists who downlaod guides to bomb-making.
While it is illegal to possess indecent images of child abuse, a legal loophole means there are no sanctions for possessing manuals that provide advice to paedophiles on how to identify and win over victims and evade capture.”
“In February 2002, Julian Levine, then 54, a paedophile from London, was jailed after hoarding 42,000 pictures of abuse. A guide written by Levine described being a paedophile as a “hobby” and was entitled The Hobby Dos and Don’ts. It suggested approaches that could be used to engage children, activities that would involve meeting children and tips on approaching children in the street.”
News of the World, 8th June 1980
The Hunt for Britain’s Paedophiles (part 2), 2002 – follows Scotland Yard’s Operation Doorknock and interviews some of Levine’s victims. Be warned – this is very harrowing viewing. It contains an interview with Levine’s niece who was raped by Levine (see approx 1hr5mins) at the home of his friend Peter Sinclair, who also features in the 1980 News of the World article.
