2012-10-30 02:24:18 - New Zealander from Timaru held in Philippines on child rape charges alleged to hold British passport as well
The New Zealand pedophile, David William Wakefield (pictured), who was arrested in a joint Davao/Kidapawan police operation last week may be holding a British passport as well.
Information has come to light that suggests he has dual New Zealand/UK citizenship, and is not a stranger to Britain, with indications he may be, or have previously been employed, by companies based in Aberdeen, Britain's oil capital in Scotland.
His arrest in a Davao, Philippines hotel on suspicion of the rape of 2 female minors has now sparked a flurry of interest in PHL, New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom. Claims he works fo a South African company, MECS, and is based in Mozambique are only adding to convoluted trail he has
left around the globe.
There is also a trail that centers around Singapore as well as Indonesia and Thailand.
Wakefield left his wife and 3 children in Australia in 1998 after his step-daughter complained to her mother that he ad been molesting her during 1996 and 1997.
He remarried and settled in Timaru, New Zealand. In 2008 he was arrested by New Zealand Police for extradition to Australia to face charges relating to the abuse of his step-daughter. The charges were representative.
He pleaded guilty as he had admitted the fact in emails to the girl’s mother. When Wakefield was released on bail he returned home and wiped the hard drive of his computer, later sending the computer to his parents.
Before he could wipe the hard drive it was viewed and found to contain images of naked underage girls and emails to females in Asia including the Philippines.
One of the females in the Philippines was named Faith Xylem Marzanta.
