Former English teacher at prestigious Bangkok school jailed over child sex offences

A British man who taught at an international school in Bangkok has been jailed in the UK for facilitating the abuse of young girls in the Philippines.

 

James Alexander, from Leeds, had been working as a teacher and part time DJ while living in Thailand between 2017 and 2018.

 

The 42-year-old was arrested at Manchester Airport on a flight back from Bangkok in June 2018.

 

Alexander, who taught in Leeds and Malaysia before moving to Bangkok, sent money to facilitators in the Philippines who live-streamed child sexual abuse from Illigan City.

 

During his trial at Leeds Crown Court it was revealed Alexander asked for images of girls aged six and nine, before asking the six year old what she "would do with him".

 

He also said he wanted to have sex with a four year old.

 

While there are no records of him ever travelling to The Philippines, the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) said Alexander used Skype and WhatsApp to ask the Filipino mothers for indecent images of their children.

 

Alexander, who on Friday was jailed for five years at Leeds Crown Court, admitted one count of arranging or facilitating the commission of a child sex offence; three counts of attempting to cause or incite a girl under the age of 13 to engage in sexual activity, and one count of making (downloading) an indecent image of a child.

 

In addition to his custodial sentence he was also handed a five-year sexual harm prevention order which bans him from traveling overseas after he is released from prison. He will also remain on the sex offenders register for the rest of his life. 

 

Hazel Stewart, National Crime Agency senior investigating officer, said: "Alexander clearly tried to manipulate and exploit the poverty of the vulnerable in order to gratify his sick sexual desires.

 

"He believed he could abuse Filipino children safely from his home and wanted to visit the Philippines to carry out the sexual abuse himself.

 

"The NCA has strong partnerships with law enforcement in the Philippines. We work together to combat this kind of offending.

 

"We and UK policing will never give up our pursuit of offenders who commit these horrendous crimes."

 

An NCA spokesman added: "Alexander taught at Bromsgrove International School in Bangkok, Thailand, which dismissed him upon notification of the investigation.

 

"Safeguarding checks were made at the school and there was no evidence of Alexander offending there."

people need to wake up.  way to many are sick and perverted and that's why they come over here, visa runs out, and then they figure they can just teach.  other teachers, farangs, i'm sure know the guy is off but afraid to report and probably have no proof.  schools like the white face.  they should be called English "speakers" not teachers.

Sure, spill some more fuel on the xenophobic fire here.

All white farangs are sick perverts or accomplices.

I'm sure the XEN in your name stands for xenophob.

 

Just know that people like you can do a lot of damage to others, Just as the scum that will be rotting now in jail.

How does a grown man get turned on by young kids.

The best thing for our planet is to exterminate this type of trash.

I used to go to the Philippines a lot as the diving there was way much better than here in Thailand. Poverty in the Philippines is far greater than here in Thailand. Cure poverty, so parents don't have to exploit their children, and it will help solve the problem. I know this sounds simplistic, but that's what has to happen.

Thai reporting always protects the Institution...For those who want to know which school in Bangkok, this from a UK paper:

  "Alexander taught at Bromsgrove International School in Bangkok, Thailand, which dismissed him upon notification of the investigation. Safeguarding checks were made at the school and there was no evidence of Alexander offending there."

If you'd read the whole article, you'd have seen it contains exactly those sentences.

The children's parents do not have clean hands and should have some form of punishment...then mandatory counseling with their child to get their parental responsibility act together...

Something has gone seriously wrong in their brains, and the damage they are capable to make is just the worst possible. Such person can never again take part in a normal society.

Chemical or surgical castration is quite effective, although his beard will fall out.
