The parliament may well ask whether the government actually wants an independent DPP, particularly given the involvement of Labor MPs and Labor employees in matters before the court to do with allegations of corruption, defamation, assault and paedophilia that have involved Labor MPs or their employees. There is a particularly pertinent point, given that The Australian newspaper carried a report on 5 December — just this week — which states:
The South Australian Director of Public Prosecutions wants several politicians and political staffers to give evidence in the state's highest court to dispute claims of paedophilia in high places.
House of Assembly
Balson was charged with naming Labor MP "Bill D'Arcy as a man facing child-sex charges on the Internet" in July 1999. At the time D'Arcy faced fifty child-sex charges including rape and was sitting in Parliament as the Deputy Speaker supporting Peter Beattie's minority Labor State government. (D'Arcy presided as acting-Speaker during discussion on paedophilia in Parliament in 1999!) Balson is the only person to have ever been charged under an obscure 20 year old Act, unique to Queensland, that prevents the naming of a person facing child sex charges before they are committed to trial. He was acquitted by an Ipswich Magistrate 9 months after being charged and arrested.
Enemy of the State
According to SA police, The Family, a gang of up to nine homosexual men, was responsible for the abduction and rape of up to 200 boys and the murder of five people during a 10-year reign of terror between 1973 and '83.
The first person killed was Alan Barnes, 17, who disappeared on June 17, 1979, while hitchhiking in Adelaide. His body, which had been washed and redressed, was found a week later on the banks or a reservoir.
...the death disgusted Adelaide but there was worse to come.
The body of Neil Frederick Muir, 25, was skilfully dismembered into 43 pieces and found in a plastic bag in Adelaide's Port River on August 28, 1979.
The final death was that of Richard Kelvin, 15, the son of a prominent Adelaide newsreader.
A court heard evidence Bevan Spencer Von Einem had kept the schoolboy captive in a drugged state for up to five weeks before killing him.
Von Einem, who maintained his innocence and refused to nominate anyone else involved in the death. was sentenced to a then SA record, 36-year non-parole period. Paedophiles in High Places
#1. Eastern suburbs businessman. Visited von Einem after his 1984 conviction. Interviewed in late 1983 and denied involvement in the Kelvin murder.
Has also denied knowledge of the other murders, despite an informant telling police he saw him with von Einem and an unconscious Alan Barnes on the night Barnes was abducted in June 1979. Refused to answer questions when approached as part of the cold case review.
#2. Former Adelaide doctor who is well known in gay circles. Former lover of a well-known Adelaide lawyer. The pair used to pick up, drug and abuse young men. Known to have supplied drugs to von Einem and suspect 1 which were used to incapacitate hitch-hikers. Lives in Sydney and refused to answer questions as part of the cold case review.
#3. Former male prostitute who is a close friend of von Einem and suspect 1. Police have considerable information that implicates him in picking up, drugging and sexually abusing hitch-hikers. Believed to have been with von Einem and suspect 1 when Kelvin was abducted, but has denied this. Now a bus driver in Brisbane, he fled Adelaide shortly after the cold case review was launched. Paedophiles in High Places
THE Supreme Court has heard claims that Adelaide's notorious Family murders "were really about making snuff movies".
Anti-child abuse campaigner Malcolm Barry Standfield allegedly made the "snuff movie" claims in 2004, during a private conversation with South Australian Premier Mike Rann's now chief of staff Nick Alexandrides.
Standfield, 67, and fellow campaigner Wendy Utting, 39, have both denied criminally defaming two politicians and two senior police officers by claiming they were pedophiles.
"(Standfield) told me that over the weekend he had been somewhere at Wingfield, he said, and that he was speaking to a bloke, as he called him, who had given him information," Mr Alexandrides said.
"(The man) had told him that the so-called Family murders . . . were really about making snuff movies."
The "Family murders" centre on the deaths of five teenagers in Adelaide in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Two of the men named as pedophiles in a fax allegedly sent by Utting and Standfield in April 2005 briefly testified in court yesterday afternoon.
A serving MP said he had "absolutely not" been involved in any kind of pedophile activity and denied ever using an alias.
A senior police officer vehemently denied knowing or having a sexual encounter with sex abuse informant Shaine Moore - who was found dead at his Kilburn home in 2005
‘The Speaker of the South Australian Parliament, Peter Lewis, says two gay men murdered in Adelaide recently told him that a serving elected politician was involved in paedophile activities in Adelaide's South Parklands.
Mr Lewis says Robert Woodland, who was found dead in the Parklands last December and Shaine Moore, whose body was found in his Kilburn home last week, separately came forward and told him of a person's activities.
"One has been murdered, one is dead under suspicious circumstances and one has been viciously bashed . . . and I want the rest of them to be protected so their stories can be properly assessed," he said.
Asked if he was deterred by death threats to him and his wife, Mr Lewis replied: "They are meant to unnerve me but that is not likely to happen"3.3.05abc

HIV-positive paedophile John McPake released into community
The District Court today sentenced John Thomas McPake, 57, to a limiting term - a period under mental health supervision equal to the jail term a healthy person would receive - of six years, 11 months and 14 days.
McPake was found unfit to stand trial on two counts of endangering life and one count each of committing and procuring an act of gross indecency.
The offences were committed between April 30 and May 23, 2011.
Chief Judge Geoffrey Muecke said he was satisfied McPake should be released on licence, subject to supervision conditions including electronic monitoring and living at a "particular address".
