AUS: Pedophile stopped at Sydney Airport by anti-sex tourism law

A convicted child molester was prevented from flying overseas from Sydney Airport on Wednesday under new laws aimed at keeping Australian pedophiles from traveling to Southeast Asia for sex tourism.

Laws that took effect on Wednesday prevent 20,000 convicted pedophiles listed on the Australian child sex offender register from leaving the country except for specific purposes approved by law enforcement agencies. Full Article

What is a “convicted pedophile”? Are there really 20,000 of them listed on the registry? And “around 2,500 new convicted pedophiles would be added..each year”.
Quite tired of that word being incorrectly used by the average person. Based on how often people and the media use it, everyone should get a PhD, because apparently they are experts.

I try to point that out to people, be not having any success. The language of the sex panic is set in people’s minds now. They lump all sex crimes together and don’t distinguish between a mental condition and a crime. It is what happened in the drug scare of the 80’s and 90’s when it didn’t matter if you where an addict, a dealer, took lots of drugs or had one joint in your pocket, you became part of large conspiracy to destroy decent society and corrupt children. Now people are starting to regret the war on drugs, but… Read more »

Their use of the term perfectly corresponds with their complete lack of understanding of it or the larger issues surrounding it. In this respect, I am happy for them to go on misusing it as it demonstrates their ignorance to others less so. In other words, I wouldn’t want to assume the role of their p.r. agent to help them obfuscate their stupidity; it is better that it be on full-show for all to see.

The reach of Rep Chris Smith has gone a touch further south than just Thailand now because his influence seems to be reaching Downunder. No one knows what the business this person was on, and they did not say what the destination was, but you are not allowed to pass GO, collect $200 or stay in the Park Ave Hotel with your little metal car either without telling us first!! Nyet!!

A bad reflection on another of the Five Eye countries.

Oh, they’ve been reflecting badly for a long time, now. They didn’t need Chris Smith to be hysterical. They’re fully capable of it on their own. It’s more of a function of being native English speakers, I’m afraid. You can count on all of them to be totally onboard the sex-hysteria wagon.

“Australian pedophiles are notorious for taking inexpensive vacations to nearby Southeast Asian and Pacific island countries to abuse children.”
OMG, a country crazier than ours! Do they have proof for this statement? Lose your passport! For life?!
“Child welfare advocates”- is that the same as modern-day witch hunters?

stupid uninformed article , if people are not being watched when they are there , how do they really know what they are doing ? from what I understand is that there are many things to see , and the food is great , and as far as the party seen go’s there are many women that are of legal age to date . I have never been there , but would love to see it , but the way things look who would want to go there if everyone thinks that all people do is go down there to… Read more »

The thing with this for me, Australia’s registry isnt public. And if the crime isn’t a Megan Kanka kinda case they can get off the registry in a few years time according to their website. I did notice when I had gone to Thailand and Indonesia that the majority of Australian men I had seen were in their older years and riding around with what looked like little kids who were dressed like prostitutes. I’m about 90% sure they were not their adopted kids or even related by the way they were “together” in public. The thing is these guys… Read more »

I don’t believe it one bit when it’s being said that “pedophiles are traveling wherever to sexually abuse children” it’s nothing but a logical fallacy just to scare people and to trip off foreign government agencies to get them to take action for no real reason other than to give maniacs like Chris Smith the satisfaction about how the IML is working real well, something is not right about this, because no one on the registry would be crazy and stupid enough to travel overseas to committ an act against children because they’re on the registry and they’re being watched… Read more »

@T —————– “… no one on the registry would be crazy and stupid enough to travel overseas to committ an act against children because they’re on the registry and they’re being watched and scrutinized and they know well that if they travel for the purpose of any criminal activity they’re gonna caught.” —————– So I wonder, is your reasoning above a good argument for keeping us all on the registry forever, at least those of us who had a child victim? Is the registry the reason why we aren’t traveling overseas to commit new sex acts against children? Do you… Read more »

@CR Yes, I agree with you

Thank you CR.

Oh Boy! You guys are in denial! The Registration Process is much simpler in Australia. Yet, you all state he is an innocent bystander. What pedophile would go to a 3rd World Country and commit another crime? Heavens no! Who on earth would commit a crime against a child anyways? Hmmmm. Your all innocent!!!

Big Mac……you are on the wrong site ! The ex offenders hear are trying make their points by over expression because of there suppression in society…. hellllloooo wake up! to bring balance to a way the fuuuuuc out of control system and probably due to wac ooooos like yourself I might add……so please if your not interested in helping restore these men’s lives just go away ! While people such as yourself want to see men in prison ! I will gladly help free my fellow men and bring real justice to an over zealous and out right humananitarian crisis,… Read more »

This is for cr…… Ex offenders are mainly first time offenders…and they are normal healthy people that have to grow stronger in healthy relationships (immature) and some must face the cards life dealt to them in a better way! They now have life experience the hard way, not everyone is born or given the same, blessings, opportunities talents , love, support, help, sex, money, power and many more things that enhance life and success. They must strive much much harder than other people to overcome the corrupt unjust legal system, so a combination of things are taking place mentally and… Read more »

Thank you Trish.
