  • Cockney rhyming slang has rarely been so apposite - a bunch of merchant bankers at CSFB have been accused of misusing the Internet and distributing porn during work hours. Apparently 24 senior dealers have been hauled in for questioning. The bank denies any such investigation, claiming it is the victim of a disgruntled ex-employee. Yeah, yeah, we've heard it all before.
  • A businessman, John Keeble (43), arrested for luring a 16-year-old schoolgirl into a sado-masochistic love sesh, is a bit of a nutter a court heard. The dirty old man aka Painmaster UK persuaded the girl over the Internet to meet up with him, and her father drove her there.

    But this is where it gets a bit dodgy. Keeble has been at this game for some while and former victims - presented as lonely and depressed - gave evidence. One said she had been slashed by a craft knife, another that she had been knocked unconscious in a bondage session, another that he had whipped and raped her. The prosecuting QC went as far as to suggest that John's ultimate aim was to kill mid-session. Keeble denies all the charges and the case continues.

  • A 40-year-old man, Ronald Fuller, has been jailed for 18 months for advertising and swapping child porn pictures over the Net. He also has the ignominious priviledge of being the first person to be charged under every section of the Protection of Children Act. Police seized over 39,000 pictures on his home computer. Nasty man, but what a hard disk. ®
