News of the World, 25th February 1979
Police have sent a 60,000 word dossier to the Director of Public Prosecutions after an eight-month investigation into an organisation campaigning to legalise sex between adults and children.
The director will now study the report to decide whether there is sufficient evidence to bring charges against members of the Paedophile Information Exchange.
The investigation has been carried out by Scotland Yard’s Obscene Publications Squad after several reports about the PIE’s activities appeared in the News of the World.
We revealed the existence of a “Circle of Evil” – a nation-wide ring of men calling themselves paedophiles.
