Child prostitution in Cuba: blowing the lid off a very old story
Canadians are shocked, shocked, to discover child prostitution draws many of their countrymen to Castrogonia
A video report uploaded today at the Toronto Star shines a light on one of the darkest secrets of the Castro Kingdom, seldom mentioned by the press and never acknowledged by the Royal Family and their boot-licking henchmen.
Babalu has been sounding the alarm for quite some time, and so have others. But this story in a mainstream Canadian news outlet might signal a change. Let's hope so, at least.
The report is as disturbing as one might expect. Among other things, it highlights the fact that there are now second and third generation child prostitutes in Castrogonia whose pimps are their parents and grandparents, all former child prostitutes.
Yeah. The glories of the Revolution....
Never mind the reporter's irritating mention of the "punishing U.S. blockade": it's to be expected from a Canadian journalist who has been to Castrogonia way too often. The rest of the report veers sharply from all such tired propaganda cliches.
Cuba's Child Sex Tourism
Most tourists are drawn to Cuba by the sand, the sunshine, and the culture. But a few tourists - including some Canadians - are drawn by something far darker.
The video report is background for another Toronto Star story: the recent arrest of a Canadian sex offender who traveled to Castrogonia very often in order to satisfy his twisted appetite for young kids with impunity. Apparently, Canada has begun to prosecute sex tourists, and Mr. McTurk is the first one of these perverts linked to Cuba.
Toronto sex offender could be first Canadian convicted of child sex tourism in Cuba
James McTurk is 78. He has wispy white hair and glasses, and speaks with a soft Scottish accent. He lives on a pension — and in a jail cell.
The Toronto man has been convicted twice on child pornography charges, and his legal troubles have just intensified: McTurk could become the first person in Canada to be convicted of child sex tourism for abusing children in Cuba.
He is now one of a very small group of Canadian men to face charges for the crime of child sex tourism. Only five are known to have been convicted.
McTurk does not travel to Cambodia or Thailand, destinations of choice for those who seek sex with children. All of his known and alleged victims have been Cuban girls. All were young, and some were very young — police currently allege some as young as 4 years old.
McTurk has spent several years on Canada’s National Sex Offender Registry, but he was able to make repeated trips abroad until he was caught last summer, almost by accident. He was arrested at Toronto’s Lester B. Pearson airport upon his return, once again, from Cuba. According to court documents — and to McTurk himself, in interviews with police — he travels there frequently.
