UN’s Top Children’s Rights Officer Convicted Of Raping Children

Fact checked
Peter Newell, the UN's top children's rights official, has been convicted of the rape and indecent assault of a child.

Peter Newell, the United Nations’ top children’s rights official, has been jailed after pleading guilty to five charges relating to the rape and indecent assault of a child.

Newell, 77, whose charity received hundreds of thousands of dollars in UN funding every year, has been imprisoned for six years and eight months after being convicted at London’s Blackfriars crown court for molesting a boy who was 12 years old when the abuse began.

The high-profile convicted pedophile resigned from his position as co-ordinator of the children’s charity Approach, active across Europe, Africa, Latin America and Asia, after he was arrested on the child sex charges.

Approach supposedly “lobbies for the protection of children around the world” and receives hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding from the UN and private donors every year, according to the Daily Telegraph.

While managing Approach, Newell used the charity to advocate for the “protection of children from violence, including smacking by parents”, and sections of a manual he wrote for UNICEF included a advice for adults on gaining “consent” from children.

Sections from the manual authored by Newell prove he understood the consequences of his actions on the life of children he raped. One sentence from the manual reads: “Research now testifies to the potentially serious short- and long-term effects on development of all forms of violence, including sexual abuse and exploitation.”

In 2015, the charity brought a complaint to the Council of Europe, the EU’s leading human rights organisation, against France and six other EU countries over their failure to explicitly ban smacking children.

While attempting to gain a Europe-wide ban on parents smacking their children, septuagenarian Newell was raping other people’s children.

London’s Metropolitan Police said Peter Newell’s offences were first reported in March 2016 by his victim, who was just 12 when the offences began.

They took at a number of addresses and locations in south and east England, including London.

The UK’s Charity Commission said it was informed by Approach about the allegation against Newell in 2016 and had been in touch with the organisation over implementing new safeguarding procedures to protect children from pedophiles within the ranks of the children’s charity.

The charity has confirmed that it has safeguarding policies and procedures in place which are being kept under review and that the charity and the trustees have very limited contact with children and that there is no suggestion that the charity’s beneficiaries were or are at risk,” it said.

  1. Proving once again noting good has ever come from the establishment of the United Nations, and nothing good will ever come out of it. Abolish it yesterday and remove the building from the ground it stands on, and give it back to the scumbag Rockafellas

    • You’re not too bright, are you? This was a private charity that the UN donated to. What’s the matter, reading comprehension problems? Jeez…

      • Ok Numskull, These are the kind of organizations that the UN money goes to and reflects on them amidst all the other terrible things they do. Sound better?

  2. And this type of thing is exactly why Our foster Care system is part of the sexual exploitation of our children.. It only takes a few well placed bad individuals to determine the unhealthy evil outcomes for so many children.

  3. Time for a purge of all paedo scum. Sooner or later the people will take control.

    And they will come for you vermin.

    • You might have to start but killing all white men in England. They’re all homosexual at best they are bisexual. It’s just part of what Great Britain is now and part of what it means to be British. I mean look at that Prince Charles what a homo

      • what the seven shades of shit does being gay have to do with abusing children im a lesbian dont see me trying to hit on kids. stfu with your closed minded bs preacher crap. i hope your child grows up gay

    • Apparently, Republicans like you and anonymous4u4me have a problem understanding what you have just read. He does not work for the UN. He works for a private charity that gets donations from the UN.

      • Ok Leftist progressive Tunnel vision for brains. (If that’s what you call brains) It shows where the money of the anti American UN goes and is reflective of this body among all the other terrible things they do. The head of human rights are countries like Saudi,China,,Russia and Venezuela for one of many instances. I wouldn’t expect you to understand common sense as a liberal.

      • Me thinks thou dost protest too much. You’re either a pedophile yourself or you’re just too ignorant to do a little research on all the rape allegations against UN ‘peacekeepers’…it’s an epidemic! And you know why? Because the UN is powerless to do anything about it. Any criminal liability must be undertaken by the UN worker/peacekeeper’s home country and they seldom pursue it. So, until you educate yourself, shut the hell up.

  4. As soon as I heard he was from Great Britain I knew that it was homosexual abuse. And guess what? I was right. I never fail to get it right. I mean is the UK just run over with homosexuals. Is there anybody straight left in England?

    • It is not being homosexual that makes someone a abuser. A pedo is sick and needs punishment a homosexual is someone who is in love and they only sleep with consenting adult.

    • worrying about what gay people are doing with each other is the gayest thing ive ever heard. For someone thats so against being homosexual you spend a lot of time thinking about it….. I think the lady doth protest too much. poor guy stop hating yourself and come out of the closet we will accept you :’)

  5. It is known that most paedophilia takes place and is hidden in the family. It’s seems to be an instinct which has learnt to hide itself. Such secrecy has been refined over the centuries – power is very often connected with secrecy.

  6. Throw the US out of the UN and move the HQ buidig to Switzerland, where the League of Nations buildings have been unused for sixty nine years.

    • YES!!!! PLEASE!!!

      I’ve been begging to get out of NATO and let those Socialists pay their own way. Imagine them having to keep paying for their failed and broken health care systems ….

      I want USA to go home and take their ball with them, they can then help US Citizens FIRST with their taxes dollars better spent.

      Monies are in MILLIONS (so 670,344 would be 670,344,000,000)
      Country … %GDP … GDP ……… $ to NATO …… % of NATO Total
      USA 3.61 18,569,100 670,344 76.11
      Greece 2.36 235,574 5,559 0.63
      Estonia 2.18 26,485 577 0.07
      U.K. 2.17 2,855,003 62,018 7.04

      Canada 1.02 1,552,807 15,858 1.80

      Suck it up buttercup.

      • ”failed and broken health care systems” – the UK’s NHS just keeps getting better and better. You hould gt out of your padded cell more often, mate.

  7. This is just a quick glimpse at the morality of the leadership that promotes the New World Order. The Pope will probably want a list of the victims so he can send his Priests to “console” them.

  8. Many people already know of this SATANIC group. After Hitler’s regime failed (keep in mind that Muslims played a huge roll with the Germans), the SAME Elites as they see themselves, (Rothschild family, the Royal family who are both German), licked their wounds and started their world domination plan again. This time putting skyscrapers carrying chemicals, along with the Dolce project experimenting on humans, creating “human weapons”, today’s Muslim. Disease of genetics called Kuru disease, impregnating through incest, then releasing the mutated humans into society. In the late 70s and early 80s, most Muslim countries were amazingly beautiful, with much tourism. Muslim women were never oppressed. Only after the mutated humans bred with normal people, did this occur. You can Google Syria, Afghanistan, Iran in the 70s and 80s and see for yourself. Government, specifically Democrats did this. Creating a world of horrors. At this stage, there is no cure for Kuru disease. Similar is the bovine or as it was coined mad cows disease. Same disease, as Kuru in humans. Unfortunately, there is only one way to rid the disease from humans and it’s the same as what happened to all the cows.

  9. All these umbrella organizations are put there so as to make it look like something is being done while nothing real is done at all. It’s just their mouths moving. Imagine what a waste of money that could be used for something uselful and helpful instead. We are all ending up paupers because of these unuseful ”investments”. We could be rich, we could have better buildings of the type they made in the past, we could have natural foods of the highest quality, useful, natural herbal medicine, natural, strong materials instead of plastic and aluminium – but many can’t conceive of it if they haven’t seen it before. We could live in a fair world where the able and the well meaning can have rights too.

  10. Where do you even start with this article….

    (1) The offences for which this man was convicted and jailed
    occurred between 1965-1968 when he was 24-28, so it is false to claim
    “While attempting [in 2015] to gain a Europe-wide ban on parents smacking
    their children, septuagenarian Newell
    was raping other people’s children.”

    (2) “Peter Newell, the United Nations’ top children’s
    rights official” No, he wasn’t; he worked with a British charity but in
    2007 contributed to a document published by the UN’s Unicef.

    (3) “Newell, 77, whose charity received hundreds of
    thousands of dollars in UN funding every year”, no, the liked Telegraph
    article states “according to accounts published on the Charity Commission
    website, for the five years from 2012 to 2016, Approach received hundreds of
    thousands of pounds in income from the NSPCC, Barnardo’s, Save the Children and
    Unicef, as well as other organisations abroad and a private donor.” How
    much was donated by the UN’s Unicef is not reported.

    So, in summary, this paedophile is not the UN’s top
    childrens’ rights official, was not convicted of crimes committed while working
    for a British charity, a charity which did not clearly receive hundreds of
    thousands of dollars from the UN every year.

    • So we have Approach managed by Mr. Newell influencing Unicef with guidelines as per one of their documents.
      We have Approach headed by Mr. Newell interacting with EU courts on children’s rights.
      All that money moving in his area of interest… corruption/embezzlement or even money laundering? Blackmail? Prostitution?
      Mr Newell managed staying out of trouble for so many years, is that normal or impressive?
      Not related: PIE was founded 1974 ended 1984 according to wiki and others.

    • Why are you an apologist for pedos? Thou dost protest too much.

      The UN must be abolished. It is anti-democratic and full of evil and insufferably vain people who nobody asked to run the World. The citizens of the World are waking up to how bad the UN is. It is going to be abolished no matter how long the un resists and whether you want to or not.

    • So you’re saying that it’s OK to rape children as long as it happened a few years ago…


  11. Septuagenerian…. soon to be octogenerian, but there is also the invisible enemy known as CV19
    so could do with an update as to alive dead prison isolation general population etc and so on usw.

  12. In case anyone here doesn’t yet realise this, understand that our reality is run by creatures that appear human but act inhumanely. This inhumanity is not “merely” psychopathy. Rather it is the indicator of an “other” presence within the creature. Two movies give the general idea: “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” and “They Live”. Humanity is at war with these creatures. Ancient tribal humans understood that they existed and took over human beings. They called them “demons” or “Wetiko” or a thousand other names. Such things are merely nonsense, right? I have met these creatures that look human, have felt them “change” from human to inhuman and sensed instinctively the “other” presence, watched them become ruthless, vile, money grubbing power hungry predators. Now they are acting together, globally, to avert the threat of the rising human “world-mind”, the collective intelligence of our loving species.
    11:11 2020 is when WE ACT.
