Founding member of Paedophile Information Exchange appears in court accused of rape and sex assaults against boys

A founding member of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange is on trial accused of a string of rape and sex assaults against boys as young as ten.

Former naval officer Douglas Slade, 74, was a key member of the network (known as PIE), which campaigned to legalise sex with children in the 1970s and 80s, the court heard.

Men would regularly call Slade in the late 60s to exchange information and ask for 'advice on how to get children to do things they didn't want to do,' it was alleged.

Slade appeared at Bristol Crown Court alongside friend and fellow former PIE member, Christopher Skeaping, 71.

Slade, formerly of Bristol, denies seven counts of indecent assault and six counts of buggery against five schoolboys between 1965 and 1980.

Skeaping denies one count of indecent assault against a 15-year-old boy, relating to an incident allegedly involving Slade, in 1980.  (more...)
