South Australian GEOFFREY MOYLE Admits to Sexually Abusing Children in Cambodia

A South Australian man who has admitted to sexually abusing children in Cambodia over three years has lost his bid to keep his identity a secret.

Geoffrey William Moyle, 46, last week pleaded guilty to 11 charges, including nine offences which were committed in Cambodia, and a further two committed in Adelaide.

In his online profile, Moyle stated he worked in Cambodia for a decade as the South-East Asia director of an international engineering consultancy company.

It stated he was "retained" by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) as a "specialist" under its Aid Advisory Panel.

The profile has since been deleted.

The charges included unlawful sexual intercourse with a child, commit indecent act on a child and possessing child exploitation material.

The sexual offences were committed in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, between 2002 and 2005, while the child exploitation offences were committed in Westbourne Park, Adelaide, in 2019.

Following his guilty pleas, the father of two sought to stop a suppression order on his identity being lifted.

He argued media reports of his identity would lead to "undue hardship" for his two young children, who were not the subject of any charges.

His lawyer provided the Adelaide Magistrates Court with two letters — one from a school psychologist and another from the children's grandparents — which explained the impact the publication of Moyle's crimes would have on them.

"The children are of a very tender age," he said.

He said they were already dealing with the "sudden absence of their father", who has been in custody since his arrest.

But Commonwealth prosecutor John Clover opposed the application, saying there was "no proper basis" for the suppression order to remain in place.

Mishmash, you certainly aren t suggesting that if one if on the left or liberal side of the political spectrum that they would necessarily support child molesting are you? I draw your attention to the forum's biggest right-wing supporter and Trumpite who so eloquently suggests it is no worse than a woman having an abortion.
I dress left thank you and strangling [email protected] is to good for him, castrate him with a rusty pair of fingernail clippers and then force-feed him his balls before strangling the gutless piece of shit that tried to hide behind his children"s mental health while he diddled other's children.

I find this entire thread to be fascinating.
I am curious about the posters who are so vehement about protecting these children and their stance on abortion.
Do you feel that a female killing her unborn child is as bad as Pieman or is she just making a choice?
Are the medical personel as evil as this shane piece of shit and his cohorts?
I sense that abortion is perfectly acceptable under your definition of a civilized society. But, knowing a bar has underage girls working there and not calling the cops is criminal.

When pedophiles go to prison, they usually get a taste of what sexual abuse feels like... from the other end.

Australian Admits Child Sex Offences in Cambodia

The identity of an Adelaide father and businessman who’s admitted to 11 child sex offences can now be revealed. 46-year-old Geoffrey Moyle committed the majority of offences against vulnerable children in Cambodia between 2002-2006.

A South Australian Court lifted a suppression order today to reveal the identity of Moyle who began working for numerous NGO's and AusAid contractors and programs in Cambodia in 2002

Moyle, who previously could not be named for legal reasons was formally charged in 2019.

AFP statement dated 25 June 2019 read:

“A 46-year-old Adelaide man has been charged with multiple child exploitation offences following an investigation by the South Australia Joint Anti Child Exploitation Team (SA-JACET), which comprises of members from the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and South Australia Police.

In February 2019, the SA JACET received a referral from the Queensland Police Service identifying a user linked to an IP address in Adelaide allegedly posting child exploitation material on an image-hosting website.

The SA JACET commenced an investigation and executed a search warrant at a residential premise in the Adelaide suburb of Westbourne Park in May 2019. Police seized a USB allegedly containing child exploitation material and arrested a 46-year-old man.

Search warrants executed today in Adelaide resulted in the man, who was on bail, being arrested on new charges. A number of electronic devices believed to contain evidence of the offending were also seized.

The investigation evolved once an analysis of information provided by international law enforcement partners identified a series of alleged offences conducted by the man while in Cambodia between 2002 and 2006.

Police will allege in court the man sexually abused children in Cambodia between 2002 and 2006.”

He was originally charged with
-Two counts of sexual intercourse with a child under 16 while outside Australia, contrary to Crimes Act 1914 (Cth). The maximum penalty for each offence is 17 years imprisonment.
-Six counts of sexual conduct involving child under 16 while outside Australia, contrary to section 50BC of the Crimes Act 1914 (Cth). The maximum penalty for each offence is 12 years imprisonment.

The CPU were aware of this investigation
"It is a credit to the Qld Police, SAPolice, FedPol and the Joint Anti-Child Exploitation Team that they were able to uncover the abuse that Moyle had inflicted over many years while working in a variety of positions in Cambodia. I am aware that investigations have been undertaken in regards to his activities while he was in and visiting Cambodia from 2002 to as recently as 2018. Cambodian authorities are cooperating with the investigation into Moyle.

It shows the commitment from all agencies including the Cambodians to combating and prosecuting person that abuse children no matter where you are from. ” James McCabe - Director Operations CPU

Further details on Geoffrey Moyle's situation whilst he was working in Cambodia, from ABC News.

Moyle 'has never been employed by DFAT'

In a statement provided to the ABC, DFAT distanced itself from Moyle, saying he has "never been employed by DFAT".

"The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has a zero tolerance approach to child exploitation and abuse," a DFAT spokesperson said.

"He worked for managing contractors that received funding from AusAID/Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade."

The spokesperson also said DFAT was not associated with Moyle at the time of his offending.

"Our review of DFAT records indicates that, during the period of alleged offending 2002-2005, he did not work on AusAID/DFAT-funded projects in Cambodia," the spokesperson said.

"It would be inappropriate to comment further on a matter that is currently before the courts."
