‘Canadian Humanitarian,’ IYKWIMAITYD

Hiding in plain sight:

A lauded Canadian humanitarian was sentenced to nine years in prison by a Nepali court for raping two young boys last year.
Peter Dalglish, who worked for decades as an advocate for children in impoverished corners of the world, was convicted in June of sexually assaulting the boys — aged 12 and 14 — last year in Kartike, a small Nepali village of rutted roads where he built a home.
It is unclear if the 62-year-old, who has maintained his innocence, plans to appeal the sentence, which was delivered in a district court and included a small cash payment to each of the victims’ families. . . .
International activists following Dalglish’s case said the ruling was just one step in addressing grave accusations of sexual abuse against children in Nepal, where thousands of nongovernmental organisations operate with limited oversight.
“Peter Dalglish’s sentencing is an alarm bell for the humanitarian community,” said Lori Handrahan, a veteran international aid worker and author, urging her colleagues “to tackle the pervasive problem of predators in our humanitarian workplace.”

More background on Daglish:

Dalglish . . . has spent decades working in Africa and Asia to combat child poverty.
In the late 1980s, he co-founded Street Kids International, a Canadian NGO focused on delivering programs to help improve the living conditions for vulnerable kids in developing countries.
More recently, Dalglish served as a senior adviser to the UN Habitat in Afghanistan, as well as worked with the World Health Organization and the UN Mission for Ebola Emergency Response in Liberia.
In December 2016, Dalglish was named a member of the Order of Canada for his humanitarian work.

How many “humanitarians” like Dalglish are also pedophiles? Isn’t the whole “international aid” racket the perfect vehicle for these perverts? Create a tax-exempt “charity” and fly off to some Third World country to “help the children,” and figure that none of the impoverished natives will make a fuss if your definition of “help” is somewhat flexible.
