A rich British paedophile, out on bail for sexually abusing children at Amsic Elementary School in Angeles City, is still paying children from the same school around $4 (Australian) for sex acts and photos.
His name is Douglas Slade 73, who once said "If you want to have sex with children, don't bottle it up - just do it!"
But there's a reason why sex charges against him are regularly dropped - he donates a lot of money to the school and gives money to the parents of his victims to drop the charges. During an ITV documentary in 1995, he boasted about how easy it was to stay clear of the law by bribing prosecutors.
His new home overlooks the school for boys 8 to 12 years old and they line up outside his house, hoping to be invited in for 150 pesos. He comes out and picks the ones he wants. Little girls are also keen to be included but so far, he only want the boys.
In the 1970s, Slade made headlines as a founder of the Paedophile Information Exchange and also headed a group called Paedophile Action Liberation who wanted to legalise child sex.
In July this year, Slade was arrested when he sent his laptop for repairs and the technician found images of naked children believed to be from the school opposite his home and reported him to the Philippines National Bureau of Investigation. But he had no fear of the law. His lawyer said the images were stolen and he walked out on bail.
Children from poor countries are so vulnerable and the Philippines is paedophile heaven for deviates like Slade.
Paedophilia is now a well-established world-wide underground business which seems to be growing, and parents everywhere have to hold their children closer than ever.
