Ruecha Tokputza has pleaded guilty to 51 child sex offences including raping 11 babies as young as 15 months old !

An Adelaide man violated 11 babies and boys, some as young as 15 months old, in Australia and overseas and shared his crimes online, In one of the state’s worst cases of sex tourism. This is why we at FACAA supported Derryn Hinch’s calls to take the passports from child rapists in an effort to stop people exactly like Tokputza here !

Ruecha Tokputza groomed Australian and Thai children for sex, then filmed their torment to encourage fellow predators to follow in his footsteps. He amassed a vast collection of thousands of images and videos of child exploitation, adding to it by attending an Adelaide swimming pool and filming boys as they changed.

Tokputza, 30, of Mile End, appeared in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on last Friday by video link from Mount Gambier Prison. He was arrested in January following a joint investigation by Australian Federal Police, SA Police, NSW Police and Interpol.

However, his identity — and all details of his case — were automatically suppressed by state legislation banning publication of child sex offence matters until the case is committed to a higher court.

The brave investigators who ended Tokputza’s depraved six-year crime spree have compared the scale of his abuse to notorious Families SA paedophile Shannon McCoole. The AFP initially charged Tokputza with six offences, adding a further 51 in September and an additional 17 counts in November.

Last Friday, Commonwealth prosecutors told the court they would drop 23 of the counts in exchange for Tokputza’s confession to the remaining 51 offences. Who makes these decisions to drop so many charges ? What about the children featured in these charges ? Where is their justice ?

Craig Caldicott, for Tokputza, said there was no need to read the charges to his client. “It’s ‘guilty’ to all 51 counts — I’ve spoken to him only 10 minutes ago and reaffirmed my instructions,” he said. “Ordinarily I would provide the court with a signed copy of those instructions, but my client is down in Mount Gambier.”

Papers tendered to the court, show Tokputza pleaded guilty to 17 counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a person under the age of 14. Those counts, as well as six aggravated counts of indecent assault, all relate to the same Australian victim, who Tokputza repeatedly abused over a six-year period.

He also pleaded guilty to two counts of committing sexual acts upon, and five counts of having sexual intercourse with, children outside of Australia.Those counts, together with three counts of persistent sexual exploitation of a child, relate to Tokputza’s trips to Thailand between January 2014 and November 2017.

All of his victims were boys, and while the identities of some — aged 15 months, 18 months, four and seven — are given in the documents, others are simply said to be “under the age of 16”. Tokputza further admitted indecently filming boys under the age of 17 as they dressed “within a swim centre change room” on May 21, 2017 — the location of the centre is not disclosed.

He pleaded guilty to one count of accessing, nine counts of transmitting, one count of possessing and one count of producing child exploitation material. That material, together with one count of distributing child exploitation material overseas, relate to Tokputza’s personal collection of images and videos.

Court documents show Tokputza was in possession of “12,500 image files” and “650 video files” of “known child exploitation material”. Much of that material featured his Australian and Thai victims, which he also transmitted to perverted, like-minded offenders in both countries.

These court documents reveal Tokputza used an online messaging app to transmit both still images and video files to fellow child sex predators. He also used the app to discuss offending with those men, talking about “guys having sex with guys”.

I am so very glad this horrific monster has been stopped, he simply must never be released from prison ever again ! He has absolutely no remorse, no compassion, no soul ! He can never again be allowed to be anywhere near children, the way he encouraged other child raping monsters to follow in his footsteps, shows that he thinks what he is doing is a good thing… worthy of copying ! Anyone with that view of child rape is not fit for release… ever !

In one conversation, he encouraged another man to visit Thailand and “engage in sexual activity with children under the age of 16” That constituted another Commonwealth offence, to which Tokputza also pleaded guilty.

Magistrate Jayanthi McGrath remanded him in custody to face sentencing submissions in the District Court in January. SA Police and the AFP declined to comment on the investigation because Tokputza has yet to be sentenced.

We at FACAA want to thank the AFP and SA Police for taking this monster off the streets, we now only hope Magistrate Jayanthi McGrath keeps him behind bars where he belongs for the rest of his life !

Someone capable of raping toddlers and encouraging others to do the same, should never be given the chance to re-offend.
