Cambodian police have released the name of the much-wanted suspect. They say he's Canadian, was born in 1975, and recently fled Korea. Does anyone know him and where he worked?

Quote:
PHNOM PENH (Reuters) - Cambodian police said on Tuesday a suspected serial pedophile being hunted by Interpol across Asia was a Canadian national called Christopher Paul Neil, born in 1975.

Keo Vanthan, deputy director of Interpol offices in the impoverished Southeast Asian nation, said Neil had visited Cambodia before leaving for Vietnam, but had no further details.

"We have issued an alert to all our international borders," Keo Vanthan told Reuters, although he added that Cambodia did not yet have enough evidence against Neil to issue an arrest warrant.

Interpol said on Monday the suspect, code-named "Vico", was believed to have fled to Thailand last week from South Korea where he had been teaching English.

Investigators have been trying for three years to track down the man after German police discovered the first of 200 photographs on the Internet in which he was shown abusing 12 young boys in Vietnam and Cambodia.

His face was disguised with a swirly digital pattern, but experts at Germany's BKA federal crime office managed to unscramble it.

The cleaned-up images, showing a white man with receding black hair, were posted on Interpol's Web site www.interpol.int a week ago.

On Monday, the police organization released an image of the suspect taken by security cameras at Bangkok airport last Thursday after he flew in from Seoul. He looks significantly older and balder.

So is everybody going to stop trying to blame Germans and Slavic people now?

It's not easy being green. Shocked

Wow...I can't imagine some the shockwaves this is going to send throughout his personal and professional circle, not to mention the overall ripples it will cause.

Not Bundang. Wonsam (near Yongin) and then Gwangju in Jeollanamdo.

I've just been catching up with this, reading through all the threads, and it's absolutely shocking. How long did this freakshow live in Korea?

According to his posts on ESLCafe, he moved here from Vietnam. I met him in early 2004.

I've been thinking about it constantly this week. His photos are haunting me, and I've been racking my brains for information that might help. I don't want to believe that it's him, but I want whoever did those disgusting things to children to be brought to justice.

I've talked to quite a few people who knew him and saw the pictures, and they've had the same feelings-- nausea, disbelief, horror...

I feel awful for Chris's family too, whether he's the guilty party or not.

Since you apparently know him and/or worked with him, were there any incidents or complaints whatsoever, even minor, at your place of work or in general daily life here in KR?

Some of Peter Jackson's posts, if indeed that is the pedo:

Quote:
Hi there,

Police checks are NOT needed to get a visa. Public schools will want one but you should be able to stall them. Often they want teachers SO quickly that they will "wait" for some things. I never gave a police check for my last public school job. I was in Vietnam at the time and getting one wasn't easy. I delayed and never heard about it again.

Good luck.

Whenever I see such videos it takes me RIGHT back to my first hagwon hell experience! I even get that horrible feeling in my stomach as if I were the guy teaching. Oh, I loved my kindergarten kids, but that was mostly because I saw them 5 days a week, 4 hours a day for nearly 12 months. I saw them grow in so many ways and could not help feeling lots of pride when they graduated.

PostPosted: Thu Jun 07, 2007 1:31 pm Post subject: Previous Records Check Reply with quote Report Post
I've just had two separate police checks (one I paid $55 CAN for) for two separate job applications in Canada. I have a photocopy of the clearance form, which just has a box checked off indicating no record plus a box checked for a "vulnerable sector screening" check. It is signed and dated by an RCMP officer.

My question is: it is a consent of disclosure form meant for an organization here so will it be enough for a pubilc school application in Korea? Or do I need to do a whole other check? It's getting redundant and expensive!

Thanks for any help. Smile


so much for police checks effectiveness...

've never heard of porn been a problem in Korea. On my first trip there in 2000 I remember reading the customs declaration form while on the plane. I was SO nervous for the remaining hours on the plane because I happened to have a couple Penthouse magazines in my bag. I ended up tossing them in the bin at the airport washroom, only to find out that no one would have found them anyway.

In terms of computers, if you're worried about any "content" there are several ways to encrypt your drive. A friend has highly recommended Truecrypt, which you can download.

If you want to get rid of old files so no one will see, then simply deleting them will not work. You'll have to get a program like Jetico's BC Wipe and "delete with wiping".

I knew him as a pretty normal guy, as far as ESL teachers go. I didn't work with him (his former school has been informed, and if they know anything, they're not telling at this point.) To be perfectly honest, I perceived him as the kind of guy who didn't have much luck with girls and would be comfortable purchasing sex (just based on his overall presentation and some comments he made regarding working girls in Thailand.) I wouldn't have been surprised if he had had a fake degree or passport-- but I would never ever have guessed that he was sexually into children. We didn't discuss it, and I never saw him around children.

I know someone who worked at the same school, though not at the same time, who would know if the school discloses any incidents.
