Thousands Of UK Child Migrants Sent To Australian Pedophile Rings

Thousands of UK child migrants have been sent to Australian institutions run by notorious pedophile rings, an inquiry into child sexual abuse in London has heard.

Thousands of UK child migrants have been sent to Australian institutions run by notorious pedophile rings, according to evidence presented at an inquiry into child sexual abuse in London.

Dr Margaret Humphreys of the Child Migrants Trust told the child sexual abuse inquiry in London that recruiters were sent to the UK to select children for church and charity-run farm schools in Australia, despite knowing that these institutions were run by pedophiles.

I think we would categorise that now as child trafficking,” she said on Friday.

The pedophile rings have been hiding in plain sight, according to the evidence, with thousands of Britain’s most vulnerable children sentenced to live in Australia under the “care” of those they should be protected from.

SBS reports: Among the worst offenders were the Catholic order the Christian Brothers who ran farm schools in Western Australia and the royals-backed Fairbridge Society which ran farm schools in NSW.

The inquiry has heard from former child migrants that say they were routinely sexually abused and flogged by staff, were poorly fed, clothed and educated and used as virtual slave labour on the farms.

It’s also heard that authorities in the UK and Australia knew of sex abuse scandals at the institutions but no proper inspection systems were in place and the offending institutions were allowed to keep operating.

“It’s much clearer now that there was knowledge that some of the institutions were quite clearly pedophile rings,” Humphreys told the inquiry.

She said the sexual abuse of even one child should have prompted an inquiry but that didn’t happen and hundreds of children were abused.

Humphreys, who in 1993 was awarded the Order of Australia for her work with former child migrants, said a regime of bullying and beatings at the institutions meant children were terrified to complain of abuse.

She said children who ran away and complained to police were invariably not believed and would be returned to the institution where they were often beaten in front of the other children as a warning.

They were left “lonely and isolated” to deal with the abuse on their own, she said.

Humphreys slammed the defence that such abuse was in line with the “standards of the day”.

“When was it ever the standards of the day to rape children, to abuse children in this way?” she said.

On Thursday former British prime minister Gordon Brown told the inquiry the child migration scheme was a “national disgrace” and the UK government must compensate the more than 2000 former child migrants left before they died.

In 2010 Brown apologised to former child migrants on behalf of the British government for the distress caused to them by the scheme.

    No links, just bits from real stories to make it sound like a new story. This is the definition of fake news. Child trafficking is real however these fake stories do nothing to help the cause they actually hurt them.

    This is some really evil and serious shit but how is it that we have never heard about this in Australia? If this is real than it has to be exposed otherwise making false allegations of this serious nature is very dangerous and as bad as the raping and abuse of children itself. If its true than get it out in the open.
