It’s a topical subject this week… later this month the CI Network will screen the documentary The Paedophile Hunters.
The 70 minute film is a UK doco about US agents woking with local authorities in Cambodia.
The film follows three cases of Americans caught in the act of gross exploitation, and shows how – in the Obama era – American agents are working supportively with their Asian counterparts to deal with crime. With unprecedented access to one of the most controversial agencies within America’s Department of Homeland Security, this film follows US agents in Cambodia as they track down American paedophile sex tourists.
Working with local activists and police, the American agents use state of the art forensics and surveillance techniques to collect damning evidence of sexual predators preying on young children. The star of this film is a former Khmer Rouge boy soldier, now a fully-fledged US agent with an office in the American embassy and a signed photo from Bill Clinton on his desk.
