Standard250883a Standard250883bCONFESSIONS OF THE ‘CHILD SEX’ MEN (The Standard, 25th August 1983)
Two leaders of the child molester group PIE spoke for the first time today about their organisation and the issue of sex with children.
Tony Zalewski and David Joy, speaking in London, admitted they had been interviewed by police in the past during investigations into the Paedophile Information Exchange on which they are executive committee members and decision makers.
Mr Zalewski, 29, said: “When something like this Brighton business happens it’s the worst possible thing for paedophiles.
“Paedophiles want loving relationships with children—this sort of attack is revolting. We are not child molesters.”
Mr Joy, 42, said he had been driven out of his home in Leicester after revelations in a local paper about his sexual interests in young girls.
He said: “We are always advocating that sex with children be by consent only. When these violent attacks happen they rebound on us through the public reaction.”
Mr Zalewski, who is unemployed and devotes much of his time to PIE, said: “For paedophiles the issue is quite clear. The child is asked: ‘Do you want sex?’. If the answer is no, that’s the end of it. Paedophiles are not child rapists.”
Slim, bearded Mr Joy said: “We only have a very small membership in Britain. I don’t believe any of our members are personally responsible for this attack on the boy, but it’s possible.
“But there are probably 200 times as many paedophiles in Britain as the members we have. This makes it a 200-1 chance against it being one of our people but it’s a possibility.
“It’s a much greater possibility that one of our members may know something about the people involved and that’s what we’re trying to find out.
“We want to catch these men in Brighton as much as anyone else and if, through their special contacts, our members can help I’m sure they will.”
Mr Zalewski went on: “I have known my own tastes in this area since I first became sexually aware at about 15 years old.
“I used to get incredible guilt feelings and I even attempted suicide with an overdose.
“But since I joined PIE over the last three or four years I have met other paedophiles and I’ve come to understand the feeling that we have.
“But I do not believe children should be forced into sex. It really is a simple matter—like asking them if they want to go to the cinema—or watch TV.
“If you talk to a child on the street, or if it is a child you know, and the subject comes up and the child is not interested in sex, then that has to be the finish.
“I have been spurned by children and although it’s hurtful I’ve left it at that.
“Children know what they want and even if it’s just making friends or a kiss and a cuddle they can say no just like adults.”
Mr Joy said it was not generally known that children were sexually aware to the point where they could and would seduce adults.
Both men said that in their organisation there were teachers, scout masters, and youth workers.
“You find that people who are attracted to children are also attracted to jobs which involve working with them,” Mr Joy said.
A document titled “An introduction to PIE” is circulated to potential new member. The cover design is an octagon showing eight figures, naked, comprising an adult man, an adult woman and linking hands with six children of apparently various ages.
Inside the document explains that PIE is a “campaigning self-help group.” It says: “Paedophiles are men and women who are sexually attracted to young people… not ‘child molesters, rapists or murderers.”
PIE claims an international membership through more than 20 countries, both homosexuals and heterosexual or bi-sexual members.
Denying it is a secret society the organisation does, however, require that new members sign a declaration that they are not working for the Press or police.
More than 50[?] per cent of the membership is said to be outside the UK. It includes the North American Man Boy Love Association.
A headmaster who infiltrated PIE criticised Home Office inaction.
Mr Charles Oxley, 61, from Rainhill, Merseyside, said he has asked Mr William Whitelaw, when he was Home Secretary, what he would do if 150 rapists got together and formed an association to campaign to make rape legal.
Mr Oxley said Mr Whitelaw, now Lord Whitelaw, “didn’t answer me and tried to maintain it wasn’t a parallel case with PIE. I believe it is.
“The organisation should be proscribed. The whole object is to incite sex with children.”
Mr Oxley went on: “I can understand the Home Office being concerned about freedom of speech and changes in certain laws. But adult sexual relations with children is not merely a breach of the law and a crime, it is a sin.
“It is an evil in society which cannot possibly be tolerated.”
Mr Oxley, who has three grown-up children, said the Home Office was “more concerned to protect the rights of perverts than it was with the safety of young children and their freedom to play safety in parks and playgrounds.

TOP PEOPLE NAMED IN BOYS-FOR-SEX INQUIRY [Evening News (London), 7th July 1980]

A network of homosexuals preying on schoolboys has been smashed by a special London police squad.
Detectives working from an HQ in the East End have spent almost a year on the inquiry.
Now a dozen men may face trial for a catalogue of serious sex offences including indecent assault and procuring under-age boys.
Police believe that at least one of the men has been involved in obtaining young boys for famous people, including politicians, prominent lawyers, show-business and film stars.
The youngest victim was six years old. Police say the majority of others were only 12 or 13 when the alleged offences were committed.
The investigation covers a three-year period.
Almost 40 youngsters have now made statements to the six man squad based at Arbour Square police station in Stepney and allegations of more than 350 offences, or attempted offences, including buggery, are being considered by the Director of Public Prosecutions.
Police say they have found a link between homosexuals in London and Liverpool.
Many of the youngsters recruited on Merseyside were said to be retarded children from schools for the educationally sub-normal.
London detectives have spent three weeks in the north interviewing victims where 12 youngsters have now made allegations.
In some instances they have been told of boys being tied face down by their wrists and ankles to beds, stripped and assaulted.
The investigation began after detectives became suspicious about activities at an East End cafe.
They kept watch and noted a number of young boys visiting. Shortly after the first arrests were made.
One detective said: “From then on the investigation snowballed into an enormous inquiry.
“We are convinced that many other youngsters may have been dragged into the vice network but have been too afraid or ashamed to tell us.”

POWER OF THE MASONS – MYTH OR A MENACE? (Sunday People, 13th July 1986)

It’s a bit like a Partridge in a Pear Tree: One Law Lord, four Lord Justices, 13 High Court Judges, [?] Circuit judges, two Royals, three MPs, 22 Lords and 99 lawyers, doctors, policemen and civil servants … with the odd bishop and canon thrown in for good measure.
This then is the membership list of the mildly-secret 1986 Masonic Year Book, the freemason’s hierarchy.
These pillars of society are only the tip of the iceberg however, the ones at the top who do not mind being identified, although the Year Book is supposed to be available only to other masons. Like the iceberg, the more formidable part is hidden beneath the surface.
There are somewhere between 500,000 and 800,000 masons out there in Britain today, divided between 3,350[?] lodges or branches. Nobody is quite sure how many there are because some masons are members of more than one lodge.
Everything they do IS secret. So secret in fact that one lodge cannot communicate with another. The only official link between them all is a quarterly newsletter sent out by the Grand Lodge.
But of course there is a lot of UNOFFICIAL communication. Secret signs[?], secret stances, secret handshakes (thumb pressing first knuckle for an apprentice, second knuckle for fellow, and third for a master mason).
Most people have heard the story about the defendant in the dock who stood a certain masonic way—left hand stiffly down the side, right had shielding the eyes from an indoor sun—in the hope it would get him a lighter sentence. Nobody is saying it did—but the seed of doubt is sown.
Take instead the case of North London police Chief Inspector Brian Woollard who claims he was put back in uniform after discovering masonic involvement in a local government fraud he was investigation in Islington.
Right or wrong, his allegation is not the important point here. What is important is that he could not ask for an inquiry into his allegations without running into freemasons.
Senior police officers, people in the Director of Public Prosecutions’ office, the then Scotland Yard chief Sir David McNee and Home Secretary Lord Whitelaw were all masons.
The essence of British justice is that it must be seen to be done.
Chief Insp Woollard, 22 years a detective and with seven commendations, had to petition the House of Commons last December to get what considered a fair hearing.
“I was removed from the inquiry, then from the company fraud department and CID by officers who were themselves freemasons,” he wrote in his petition.
His case is still rumbling on. Labour MP Austin Mitchell, who presented Chief Insp. Woollard’s petition to Parliament, last week wrote to Home Secretary Douglas Hurd calling yet again for an inquiry into the case.
Mr Mitchell believes there should be available to the public a national register of all people in authority who are freemasons.
“The present situation is very unhealthy,” he said. “Leon Brittan, the former Home Secretary, did ask whether it was compatible for people in senior offices also to be freemasons, which was a major step forward by Government, but even that did not go far enough.
“I’m not persecuting freemasons—some of my best friends are masons—but here is a secret organisation which needs to be more open.”
Mr. Woollard’s case has led to a carefully-worded directive from the current Yard chief Sir Kenneth Newman—who is NOT a freemason—to the 27,000 men in his force advising them that it is “unwise” for them to join or remain in the masonic movement.
Two other chief constables, James Anderton in Manchester and David Owen in North Wales, threw their weight behind Sir Kenneth’s directive.
But it is Mr. Anderton’s Manchester force which is now accused of being riddled with masons who are out to stop Stalker.
In an explosive book, The Brotherhood, author Stephen Knight claimed that 50[?] per cent of all Britain’s chief constables are masons.
The point is the organisation is so secretive it is virtually impossible to sort the fact from the fiction.
Various authors and journalists—usually the most critical of freemasonry because they loathe secrecy—have discovered that masons are strong in the Glasgow police force, which has its own lodge, also in British Airways, Granada TV, most major teaching hospitals, the Central Electricity Generating Board, the Post Office, British Telecom, the AA and the Church of England, which is currently carrying out its own investigation.
In the last 25 years 15 lord mayors of London have been masons.
A past Director of Public Prosecutions, Sir Norman Skelhorn, has been one, as had the late Lord Widgery, a former Lord Chief Justice, and former Solicitor General Sir Ian Percival.
Other top people named in the Masonic Year Book are:
Lord Templeman, one of the law lords who blocked the GLC when it wanted to give £25 million to voluntary bodies shortly before it was disbanded; Lord Belstead, a junior minister at the Agriculture Department; Lord Caradon, Foreign Minister in Harold Wilson’s Government; the Earl of Derby, president of Merseyside Chamber of Commerce; Lord Townshend, chairman of Anglia Television.
MPs include Sir Ian Percival (Con) Southport, Lt-Col Neil Thorne (Con) Ilford South, Sir Gerard Vaughan (Con) Reading East and former health minister.
Now it’s not illegal to be a mason. Prince Philip is one, although he no longer practices and advised Prince Charles against joining.
Eleven members of the Queen’s household are members including past surgeons and a former chaplain.
Prince Michael of Kent is a mason and the Duke of Kent is Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of Great Britain.
He wants masons to be less secretive and was the driving force behind a permanent exhibition which he officially opened last week at London’s Freemasons’ Hall.
The exhibition tells the 300-year story of “modern” freemasonry and emphasises its good works and charitable deeds.
It does NOT explain why women are not allowed to be masons – and why consequently women do not make it to the top in companies with strong masonic influence.
Or why small town businessmen find they have to become masons to win contracts.
Or why grown men are so frightened to admit: “Yes I’m a mason.”
What have they got to hide?
