Initially, the Times was not going to publish this article because of its very disturbing nature. However, it is as well to highlight the attraction Thailand holds for some of the world’s depraved plant life.
Not only do they prey on the innocent but they coerce desperate relatives to assist them in their sickening activities. Hopefully, this monster will be sent down for a very, very long time.
A HIV positive Australian man repeatedly called a woman in Thailand begging to have sex with her two year old granddaughter, a court has heard.
Pig farmer, Howard John Hawke, 69, from Kangaroo Flat, was arrested in 2017 after police intercepted phone calls of him talking about “extremely depraved sexual activity” with the child after he had spent time in Thailand.
During the phone calls, Hawke told the “impoverished” woman in Thailand to whip the toddler because he “likes to see young ones hurt.”
Hawke had also made a violent sexually explicit video of the Thai woman’s 16 year old daughter, who is also the mother of the two year old.
In the video, the County Court of Victoria heard how the 16 year could be seen screaming after being whipped, while her wrists were bound and she was wearing a dog collar.
The court also heard how Hawke had sold his pig farm for a million dollars in 2006 in order to fund his retirement. However, he blew the money on extensive trips to Southeast Asia where he became involved “in the extremely sexualised environment” of Thailand.
By the time he was arrested in 2017, Hawke was living in a “boarding house” in Victoria, with only $6,500 in cash and with credit card debts of $13,000.
In his defence, Hawke said he did not plan to have sex with the toddler and that the phone calls were him acting out a “fantasy” and that he was “just a bit of pervert.”
Crown prosecutor Krista Breckweg argued his behaviour was more than just fantasy.
“He talks about extremely depraved sexual activity,” she said.
“For example, he talks about the baby being held down by her own mother and grandmother.
This behaviour was premeditated. He wanted to go overseas with the intention of procuring babies.”
During his arrest, Hawke was also found with 32 pornographic images and 7 videos of children.
Hawke is due to be sentenced on Thursday.
