Charity with links to Charles is targeted in paedophilia probe

THE GODDARD Inquiry into child sexual abuse is investigating links between the Paedophile Information Exchange and a charity once headed by a trusted adviser to Prince Charles.

Investigators have trawled through files relating to PIE and the Albany Trust, a gay advocacy group chaired by Sir Harold Haywood in the 1970s.

PIE was a pro-paedophile activist group, founded in 1974 and disbanded in 1984.

In 1976, records show the Albany Trust worked briefly with PIE to produce an “informative pamphlet” on the “sexuality of children”.

Minutes from a meeting held in Stockwell, south London, in February 1976 show it was attended by Sir Harold, who was also director of the Royal Jubilee and Prince’s Trust, as well as prominent PIE members Keith Hose and Warren Middleton.

After the meeting and a further two held that year, the Albany Trust, which received government funding, commissioned a booklet called “Paedophilia: Some Questions and Answers”.

In the first draft, it stated: “One argument for lowering or abolishing the age of consent rests on the knowledge and experience that children are at least as capable of deciding how to express themselves sexually as they are in expressing other basic needs or desires, for example for food, comfort, security, companionship, play.”

It later adds: “Even babies have ways of expressing their wishes, in broad terms, just by crying when they are hungry.”  (more...)
