It's becoming increasingly apparent that the preliminary examining body in the Serop Der Boghossian paedophilia case, the National Security Service, has botched the investigation.
First off, all the "victims" have not been brought into the process. Only ten have been questioned, but they number much more.
The pre-examining body hasn't revealed just how many parents of the adolescent boys involved knew that their children had been receiving monetary gifts as enticements.
Listening to the testimony of the parents, one can conclude that at least some of them knew why the boys had been bringing money back home.
And the amounts weren't small. They often amounted to tens of thousands of dollars. In essence, the parents were using the children as a means to make money. Thus, one can posit, that these parents were active participants in the crimes committed by Serop Der-Boghossian.
Who can say whether or not some parents actually encouraged the boys to partake in such sexual exploits?
Thus, is there any guarantee that these same parents might not send their daughters to make some money in a similar manner?
Maybe, some of these parents should be stripped of their parental rights.
The fact that many are economically destitute must not serve as an excuse for their behaviour.
This banner of poverty that they now conveniently wave in the court and their emotional theatrics mustn't blind us to the following possibility – that these parents will once again send their kids to the bosom of 'Baron Serop' if given the chance.
Yes, this is how the victims and parents of the victimized children continue to address Der-Boghossian.
It's odd that Serop Der-Boghossian's chauffeur and security staff haven't been interrogated.
They were the ones transporting the children back and forth.
And what about the employees of the hotels used by Der-Boghossian as convenient meeting places?
The list of individuals tacitly complicit in these crimes over the years goes on and on.
