MELBOURNE/VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – An Australian court has found Cardinal George Pell, one of the highest ranking Vatican officials and a former top adviser to Pope Francis, guilty on five charges of child sexual offences committed more than two decades ago against 13-year-old boys.
verdict was made public on Tuesday following the lifting of a court
suppression order on the trial, after a second abuse case against Pell —
the most senior Catholic clergyman worldwide to be convicted for child
sex offences — was dropped by the prosecution.
Pell’s lawyers have said they will appeal the verdict, which embarrassed the Vatican because it became public just two days after a major conference on preventing sex abuse. He had pleaded not guilty to all five charges.

A former high-flying soldier who used to be Prince Harry‘s bodyguard has been spared jail despite downloading child sex images.
Timothy Murfitt used search terms such as ‘toddler’, ‘kids’ and ‘baby girl pics’ when he searched for more than 10,000 disturbing images of children.
Maidstone Crown Court heard the 47-year-old former soldier was working in London when police went to his home in Sevenoaks, Kent, in April last year.
But Murfitt – who also had pictures of adults having sex with animals – was spared jail by a judge who praised him for his ‘exemplary’ military service.
Judge Martin Huseyin said: ‘Your history is remarkable. Your military record seldom reaches the levels of considerable praise that you have from those who dealt with you.

A video published by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) showing 6-year-old school children being instructed to write gay love letters has been causing a stir on social media.
The video, originally uploaded to BBC Radio Manchester’s Facebook page, shows young children at Bewsey Lodge Primary School being instructed to write love letters from “Prince Henry” to his manservant, “Thomas”, with the teacher instructing her pupils: “You’re going to tell Thomas why it’s a brilliant idea for him to marry you.”
“This school teaches children about LGBT relationships from an early age,” enthuses the BBC’s subtitled commentary.
“This class of six-year-olds is learning about gay marriage. In this fairytale, the Prince wants to marry his [male] servant. And the children are writing a love letter.”
The teacher, named as Sarah Hopson, tells the BBC that the children “are going to go out into that world and find this diversity around them, and they’ll find that at a young age as well”.

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn attended a pedophilia-themed party, according to photographs surfacing online.
The Daily Caller’s Ian Miles Cheong appears to have been the first to find and publish the photos.
The now-disgraced Gunn was fired by the Walt Disney Co. last month after countless “jokes” about child rape were dug up on his Twitter account. The jokes were more than five-years-old and also mocked sensitive subjects such as AIDS, the Holocaust, Mexicans, and “ass raping” women.
As Breitbart News previously reported, these “jokes” included…
“…a post about a monkey that “jerked off” on a child, high-school kids masturbating “in front of the others to show how fun it is,” his alleged experience of doing a “reading with a convicted pedophile,” and how he wants to make a “Hollywood film adaptation of The Giving Tree with a happy ending – the tree grows back and gives the kid a blowjob.”

There’s enormous news to report in the battle against child trafficking – where 153 criminals involved with international child-sex trafficking syndicate have been taken into custody – and over a dozen children have been rescued in an operation that was known as “Project Mercury”.
The arrests were made in cooperation with law enforcement agencies in the United States of America, Canada, and the United Kingdom after a series of global investigations.
Using resources from the international community, and advanced forensics equipment, enough evidence was compiled to carry the investigation into multiple countries where pedophiles were engaged in monitoring the child pornography streams.
Authorities say they were first notified after authorities with the National Crime Agency in the United Kingdom discovered a group of offenders who were engaged in the sexual abuse of children, according to Toronto Police during a press conference.
They were tipped off about illicit online activities, that eventually led to further evidence supporting a global child-sex trafficking organization who were molesting the children, with the youngest of that group believed to be only ten-months-old.

A probe has been launched into a top human rights barrister after she was accused of trolling a string of child sex abuse victims online.
Law chiefs are looking into the claims against Barbara Hewson, 56, following complaints from survivors about foul-mouthed posts.
Messages sent on social media sites from various personal accounts in Hewson’s name have seen her brand victims “lunatics”, “manipulative”, “dangerous”, “cowardly” and “nutwings”.
One outraged victim said: “This can’t go on. She has to be stopped.”
In other posts, Hewson tells those sharing their horrific experiences with others to “shut the f*** up”.
She appears to brand one alleged victim “as vulnerable as a lorryload of gravel” and criticises victims “whinging” about their ordeals.

Part 1 of an exclusive interview with John Wedger Former Met Detective Whistle Blower
Disgraced former publicist Max Clifford, imprisoned for a series of sexual assaults, was fighting for his life last night after collapsing twice in his cell before suffering a cardiac arrest in hospital.
Clifford, 74, is serving an eight-year sentence at Littlehey Prison in Cambridgeshire for sex attacks carried out between 1977 and 1985 on four girls aged between 15 and 19. He has been seriously ill since suffering a heart attack in August.
His daughter, Louise, 46, said: ‘He collapsed in his cell on Thursday when he was trying to clean it – it was just too much.
‘Next day he collapsed again and was unconscious for several minutes – though he doesn’t know how long.
‘He was seen by a nurse, who insisted he must be transferred to a local hospital.
‘That’s where he had his cardiac arrest, later on Friday. He is now in the critical care unit. He’s in a bad way.’

Tonight, Tikun Olam breaks the story of the Israeli ambassador who cheated on his wife with men and boys–inside the ambassador’s residence!
Israel’s former ambassador to the UK has been accused of inviting men and boys for trysts late at night when his wife was not home. A British policeman filed a complaint with Israeli authorities about the incidents. A further investigation by the foreign ministry’s inspector general found that UK-born Ambassador Daniel Taub, who was ambassador from 2011-2015, violated security protocol by not notifying his chief of security of the identity of the visitors. The purpose of recording visitors is in order to prevent Israeli diplomatic personnel from being blackmailed or compromised. Since MI5 knew of Taub’s activities, the Israeli foreign ministry was concerned that he might be compromised by them or that one of his paramours might attempt to extort payments from him.
Diplomatic security is provided by the Shabak, which would be aware of the incident. But my attempts to elicit comment from an Israeli security source were met with silence. Though the story has been reported in the Israeli media, no one has yet identified Taub by name. This is peculiar because there is no judicial gag order against reporting his name. This is one hot potato!
When questioned about the matter, Taub claimed he had never invited a minor into the residence. He added that the visitors were all adults and that their purpose was “therapeutic” (!) in nature. Though none of the Israeli reports have spoken outright of sexual activity, how could there not be?
When asked to explain why the police officer would claim minors entered his residence if that wasn’t the case, Taub claimed that he and the policeman had exchanged words and the officer had been offended by something the ambassador had said to him.
