Pastor taken into custody over sexual assault

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- A Korean pastor, surnamed Tsuei, was taken into custody by the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB) yesterday over mistreating children in a children's refuge in Pingtung and gaining illegal profits by purportedly building a refuge center.

The CIB had received a report last November from an 18-year-old saying that she and another girl had been sexually abused for a long period of time by Tsuei when they lived with him in the Chinese Christian Junper Tree Caring Association (羅騰樹關懷協會) refuge center two years ago.

According to the police, the victim said that Tsuei usually came to the room where teenage girls lived at night and chose a target. After Tsuei decided, he would tell that girl to go and pray in his room. Tsuei forced whoever came to his room to bath with him then sexually assault those victims.

  Prosecutors said although victims were unwilling to do so, they could not resist since they were afraid of being kicked out from the center.

Prosecutors also pointed out that Tsuei even tried to brainwash those victims by saying this is the way Korean parents show their love to their daughters.

The police also investigated in the Chinese Christian Junper Tree Caring Association, where Tsuei is working as the director, and found that the association had raised funds under the guise of building charity facilities.

Tsuei denied all the charges during questioning yesterday, saying that all the disciplinary measures carried out had been approved by the center.

The police transferred Tsuei and his wife, surnamed Kao, to the Pingtung District Prosecutors' Office yesterday. Tsuei was taken into custody while Kao had been granted bail of NT$50,000.

According to the police, Tsuei has lived in Taiwan for 15 years. There are currently 11 teenagers in the association, including seven girls and four boys. Polices suspect that there may be more victims.

What a sick man. People of this sort cannot ever be allowed to leave prison for the rest of their lives. Wife should be punished too, but she might just be a weak link and could not say "no" to him either.

My goodness, what is this world coming to?! I remember only hearing of this type of crimes in the States, now here. Our prayers are with those teenagers.

If that is true, it is evil in so many different ways. But the world has always been that way. It has been common place in China for over a 1000 years. In Rome before that and Egypt before that. The world has always been sick. Always abusing young women and young men, like that baseball coach in Taipei. Going to prison won't stop that sick behavior only death will.

It should not be a surprise that it happened in Taiwan or anywhere in this fallen world. Wickedness and evil are the same when they appear and revealed. But it's a sad reminder to adults. That they be more responsible. If they give birth to children and they shy away from their obligations to care and nurture those children they bore, these children will seek refuge elsewhere. Poor abandoned children given to seek a livelihood on their own in this cruel world ended up with these wicked people. Mr. and Ms. Tsuei are just a very few if these. Much as this couple is guilty, these parents of the abandoned children must be guilty. They gave these predators the chance to advance their cruel deeds. It creeps into my mind to bring the governmental agencies to task but on second thought, the government can only do that much. So before adults screw around and give birth to children, please remember. Having fun for a shirt time can bring huge tragic sufferings to the by product namely the children abandoned and ended up with one of these kind, the Tsuei.
