Peaches Geldof In Hot Water After Naming Ian Watkins Abuse Trial Women

Subscribe Lost Prophets

Peaches Geldof, the daughter of Bob Geldof, has found herself in trouble after she shared the names of two women who allowed disgraced former Lostprophets singer to abuse their babies. The bizarre and sickening case has unearthed shocking details about Watkins, a man described as a "determined and committed paedophile" in the ongoing court case.

Watkins pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted rape and 12 other offences including sexual assault and taking, making and distributing indecent images of children. However, the identities of the two women, and therefore their children, have been kept secret. Peaches is said to have found the names of the women on an American website and shared them with her Twitter followers.

Though the tweet has been deleted, Peaches has posted a series of furious tweets directed at Watkins and the decision not to name his co-conspirators. "I can't even bring myself to comment on Watkins admitting raping babies either. As a mother of two babies myself all I can think of as I--read the stories is how utterly traumatised those babies must have been during and how he has now robbed them of their childhoods all for--his own sick, twisted pleasure," she wrote.

"The papers MUST name "woman A & B" who offered up their own babies to this monster in the hopes of being--just how far the cult of celebrity and super fandom has come when grown women are passing their own kids round. I hate the world sometimes," she added.

A spokeswoman for the Attorney General's Office said, via BBC News, "We understand that the names of the co-defendants in the Ian Watkins case were posted online but have now been removed [...] the co-defendants were the mothers of the victims. "Victims of sexual offences have automatic lifetime anonymity and the publication of names or information which can lead to their being identified is a criminal offence. This is a police matter."

Ian H Watkins

As the result of publically broadcasting the names to her 160,000 followers, i.e. committing a criminal offence, Peaches Geldof could face a criminal investigation. Ian "H" Watkins, AKA H from pop group Steps, has also unwittingly been dragged into the ordeal after online users mistook him for the Lostprophets singer.

To make matters worse, news website E! Online posted a photo of the wrong Ian Watkins in a story accompanying the child abuse case. E! Online have since apologised and have removed the photo but H has announced that he is abandoning his Twitter account after the torrent of abuse he received.

Peaches should not be punished as the women's names should be release (and the babies put up for adoption) as accused pedophiles like Ian Watkins, Sylvain Kustyan, Jerry Sandusky, Jimmy Savile,etc. (and their enablers) must be apprehended before they have years to continue to destroy young lives. Sandusky and Watkins are now safely behind bars. But unfortunately, Kustyan, who has been formally charged with two counts each of 1st Degree Sodomy and Sexual Abuse of a ten-year-old little boy, fled to avoid imminent arrest. Kustyan, formerly of Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Hermin/ Mazingarbe, France, as an English teacher, has led numerous groups of schoolchildren on trips to the US, the UK and Ireland. Kustyan is now a fugitive from the law. Perpetrators condemn their victims to a lifetime of emotional and psychological trauma and often permanent physical ailments as well. Since the average pedophile has 300 different victims in their lifetime and since the recidivism rate among pedophiles is virtually 100% and since there is no effective treatment and no known cure
