I. Am. Speechless.

This is from the Times on London.
A “child rights activist” convicted of abusing a 12-year-old boy managed a charity that received hundreds of thousand of pounds from the NSPCC, Barnardo’s, Save the Children and Unicef.
Peter Newell, who wrote a manual on children’s rights published by Unicef, was jailed for multiple counts of historical sexual assault on a child aged 12 when the abuse began.
Newell, 77, was listed as co-ordinator for Approach, a children’s charity active across Europe, Africa, Latin America and Asia until the allegations arose in 2016.
He was jailed last month at Blackfriars crown court after admitting five charges relating to the rape and indecent assault of a boy under 16.
Not a shock. The UN has had a serious child-rape problem for years.
And this might be the classic: a child porn studio in the basement of the Brussels United Nations Children’s Fund builiding.
The scandal erupted last week, when the Belgian police arrested Jos Verbeek, 63 years old, the director of Unicef’s Belgian committee, and charged him with inciting minors to debauchery.
The arrest followed the discovery of a secret photographic studio in the basement of the Brussels building where the committee’s offices are housed. The studio was used to take pornographic photographs of children, many of whom were of North African origin, the police said. #1,000 Photos Seized The police said more than 1,000 such photographs were seized, along with a mailing list of some 400 names in 15 European countries that had been prepared on the Unicef office computer.
Similar photographs found in several other European countries appear to have been taken in the Unicef office in Brussels, according to investigators.
Among those arrested was another Unicef employee, Michel Felu, 45, who the police say organized evening computer classes for children in the organization’s offices. These children were then sometimes made to pose for pornographic photographs, the police said.
But the UN is not alone. Last week the charity and haven for noxious busy bodies, Oxfam, revealed that its workers had extracted sexual favors from women they were supposed to be assisting after the Haiti earthquake.
