Snared: Britain’s most wanted paedophile flown back to face justice after 15 years on the run
Evil Warwick Spinks, who has a horrific history of kidnapping, abusing and selling young boys, was arrested in Prague
Britain’s most wanted paedophile was locked up last night after 15 years on the run trying to escape justice for his depravity.
Evil Warwick Spinks, 48, who has a horrific history of kidnapping , abusing and selling young boys, was flown back to the UK after being arrested in Prague in the Czech Republic.
He was met at Heathrow airport by police who have been looking to put him away for sickening abuse spanning three decades.
Spinks was dubbed the Pied Piper of Paedophiles and bragged he could arrange sex with young boys for as little as 10p.
The pervert, from Greenwich, south-east London, also boasted of his links to the makers of “snuff videos” in which youngsters are tortured and killed on camera.
A spokesman for the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre said yesterday: “Spinks stands out as one of the most notorious and violent offenders we have ever dealt with. We’ve worked tirelessly to track him and now he’s back behind bars.”
Spinks was first investigated in 1992 after police identified him as a dangerous child abuser with links to paedophile rings in the UK and Europe.
He divided his time between England and Amsterdam, where he acted as a fixer introducing sex tourists to young boys in the Dutch city.
A Metropolitan police officer posed as a paedo looking for under-age sex in a joint operation with Dutch cops.
Spinks told the officer he could pick up under-age boys in Germany, Prague and Poland for as little as 10p.
Spinks was secretly taped offering to supply a video in which a 10-year-old boy was killed.
A gay man known only as Frank told Scotland Yard horrifying details of a trip to Amsterdam where he met the abuser. Frank claimed Spinks wanted him to sell “special films” and showed him a sample involving a boy being beaten, castrated and cut open.
An undercover police officer asked Spinks if he could get him torture videos featuring 10-year-old boys.
Spinks replied that he could saying: “I know, well I knew, some people who were involved…they only sold them in limited editions, made 10 copies or something, 10 very rich customers in America who paid 5,000 dollars each.” On his return to the UK, Spinks was arrested and sentenced to seven years in 1995 at Lewes Crown Court, East Sussex, for a sickening catalogue of offences against under-age boys.
The court heard how he drugged and kidnapped one 14-year-old boy and took him to Amsterdam where he sold him to a gay brothel. Spinks had his sentence reduced to five years on appeal but while out on licence he fled the country. He finally set up home in Prague and formed links with ex-Radio 1 DJ Chris Denning, 71, another notorious paedophile.
Spinks was tracked down in the city by former Sunday People investigator Roger Insall in 2000. He found the pervert running sex tours for other paedophiles. But the authorities failed to arrest the predator.
He was finally seized in August after an investigation by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), the Met and the Serious Organised Crime Agency.
After extradition, he was picked up at Heathrow on Thursday.
Peter Davies, head of the CEOP Centre said: “I hope this arrest sends a clear message to other missing child sexual offenders that however far you travel we will track you down.”
