Chilean cult leaders head to prison
Published: Feb. 20, 2013 at 11:08 AM

SANTIAGO, Chile, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- Four men convicted of sexually abusing children at a cult compound in southern Chile have turned themselves in to begin serving their sentences, officials say.

Gerard Mucke Koschitzke, Kurt Schnellenkamp Nelaismisckies, Gunter Schaffrik and Dennys Alvear Henríquez were found guilty of "various crimes of sexual abuse, rape of minors and abduction of minors" by Chile's Supreme Court on Jan. 25, The Santiago Times reported Tuesday.

The men, leaders of the Colonia Dignidad, face sentences of five to 11 years in prison.

They were part of the "iron circle" of Paul Schafer, a former Nazi who created Colonia Dignidad in 1961.

In addition to housing his followers, the compound also served as a prison where opponents of dictator Augusto Pinochet were tortured.

2. IMO, torture takes a sadistic

person to administer it. Rape is also a crime of power, not sexual gratification. These two acts would seem to be very similar.
Interestingly, people whose life's goal is to acquire wealth and power are also a part of this sociopathic sub-set of humans.
I remember when reports came out (and were legally prevented from coming to trial by way of the "states secret privilege") by a woman claiming to have been a part of a child sexual slave group who serviced American politicians and other elites.

I do not know if her story was true, but it bothered me that she was denied her day in court. The official story was that she was crazy and her story would ruin many valuable reputations. I believe that she named h.w. bush as one of the perpetrators.
She may have been insane and lying, IDK, but if those allegations were made against a regular person, they would have (at least) gone to trial if any of her story could have been corroborated by circumstantial evidence.

They were similar to the allegations of orgies and black-mail that FBI whistle blower Sibel Edmunds claimed to have discovered as an FBI interpretor. I do not believe that Ms. Edmunds referred to slavery or any minor abuse.
