An Adelaide court is considering whether it can order a paedophile to compensate his abuse survivors in South-East Asia, with the judge suggesting the payments would be an Australian first.

Geoffrey Moyle 's online profile stated that he worked in Cambodia for a decade. He pleaded guilty to 11 charges, including nine committed in Cambodia . He said if his identity was revealed it would lead to "undue hardship" on his children . In his online profile, Moyle stated he worked in Cambodia for a decade as the South-East Asia director of an international engineering consultancy company.

Geoffrey William Moyle has pleaded guilty to 11 child exploitation charges — including the sexual abuse of six children in Cambodia between 2002 and 2005. Judge Cuthbertson questioned why Moyle published the videos of his offending online, asking the defence if it was for financial reward. The defence said he had not received money for the videos but had been "trading" material with other online predators. The Commonwealth DPP submitted to the court that Moyle be sentenced to immediate imprisonment for at least three years.

He said ordering compensation be sent overseas would likely be an Australian first.

"There haven't been any cases in Australia, so everyone is coming out of this fresh, and there are a number of issues that I'm wondering about," he said.

"I'm not saying there isn't an answer to it somewhere, but I'm not aware of it."

The court was told the Director of Public Prosecutions would not be asking Judge Cuthbertson to order the survivors be granted compensation because they could launch civil action against their predator.

But Judge Cuthbertson questioned how a poor child from Cambodia would do that.

"It would be a big thing for a poor individual in Cambodia to run a civil case in Australia," he said.

He added that if he did make an order for compensation, he was unsure how much to award them given $5,000, for example, could be a "fortune" in Cambodia.

  ‘A ghost that haunts’: Living with landmines in Kashmir For those living along Kashmir’s Line of Control, landmines destroy lives and livelihoods.Twenty years ago locals it was standard but informal practice in parts of Indian-administered Kashmir for the army to select young men from nearby villages for night patrol along the 734km LoC, to keep watch for “infiltrators” from the other side of the border.

Adelaide paedophile could be ordered to compensate children abused overseas. In what could be an Australian first, children sexually abused by paedophile Geoffrey Moyle in South-East Asia could be eligible to receive compensation if laws allow payments to be sent overseas, an Adelaide judge says.

I am sure we Light Warriors can identify with the Anon. There is a surreal mix of feelings – elation that the victims are being rescued, and absolute heart break over what they have suffered. It is impossible for us to imagine what these most innocent members of humanity have endured. Some spokeswoman at child protective services calmed that if mass rescues of children were occurring her organization would be the first to hear of it. Wait a minute, I say,only if CPS isn’t run by pedophiles ! Reply.

Jonathan Wells QC, who is representing one of the survivors for free, told the court that the reason compensation was being sought was because Moyle had assets, including a house in Adelaide.

He asked Judge Cuthbertson to "freeze" those assets until the issue of compensation had been sorted out.

"It ensures there's not any steps taken to reduce any equity in that property," he said.

Mr Wells also told the court that his client wanted Moyle to be physically present in court when her impact statement was read to the court.

Moyle has sore back, lawyer claims

State laws allow a victim to request their perpetrator attend court to hear their statement, rather than appear via video-link from jail.

But Heath Barklay QC, for Moyle, told the court that his client had a sore back and could not travel from Mount Gambier Prison to Adelaide to attend court in March.

Judge Cuthbertson has requested a report from prison authorities to determine if Moyle can travel in a car, rather than a prison van.

In his online profile, which has since been deleted, Moyle stated he worked in Cambodia for a decade as the South-East Asia director of an international engineering consultancy company.

It stated he was "retained" by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) as a "specialist" under its Aid Advisory Panel.

But DFAT said he had never worked for the department.

Moyle's case will be back before the court tomorrow for argument about whether his assets should be frozen.
