Swansea man asked any "pedo mom vids?"

15 Jan 2019 02:24 PM

A 43-year-old man from Swansea was yesterday jailed for 14 online child sex abuse offences.

Rene Kinzett pleaded guilty to an indictment that covered nine years’ offending - from 2008 to 2017.

Kinzett, of Sketty, Swansea, was arrested by the Metropolitan Police in 2015 and was being investigated when the National Crime Agency and South Wales Police also launched a joint investigation into him in 2017.

On 1 September 2017 Kinzett signed into a live-streaming chat room with his online identity ‘UKcloudybi Perv’ while footage of children being raped was broadcast.

He was present when seven category A (the worst) videos were streamed, one category B and one category C.

He asked other users several times if anyone had “pedo mom vids?”

He was yesterday sentenced at Snaresbrook Crown Court to 45 months after admitting 14 charges including encouraging other offenders to share child abuse material.

NCA senior investigating officer Graham Ellis yesterday said:

“Offenders who take part on these online forums, or possess these depraved images, do so knowing that the children have been abused.

“They believe they can access images and videos online and stay anonymous. They’re wrong. NCA and police officers are highly trained and experienced, there is no place to hide, we
will catch you.”

Detective Inspector Clive Bevan yesterday said:

"Investigating sexual violence is a priority for South Wales Police and we are committed to investigating all reports of sexual abuse, including online – regardless of when they occurred – in order to ensure that those who exploit the most vulnerable members of society are brought to justice.

"We have dedicated teams to help and support victims of sexual offences and we work closely with a number of agencies to whom we are able to signpost victims should they wish.

"South Wales Police urges anyone who has been the victim of sexual abuse to come forward, safe in the knowledge that they will be treated with respect and dignity by our specialist officers.

“Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility and we urge anyone with information that could help police to contact 101 or 999 in an emergency."
