A British Court in 1995 gave him 7 years prison sentence but an appeal court reduced this to 5 years. Only five years for kidnapping and selling children into the sex trade? The he absconded and has been living happily in Czechoslovakia until November last year. So despite the European Arrest Warrant the British left Spinks to terrorise the children of Czechoslovakia for 15 years.
Spinks was so well protected that he made the mistake of flying back into Heathrow. Spinks was shocked that he was arrested but was assured by his lawyers that he wold soon be free to return to his property empire in Czechoslovakia.
This month another British Court has freed him. SPinks can go back to abducting, raping and murdering children with the blessing of the British criminal justice system.
A VIOLENT child sex predator recaptured following an international manhunt quaffs champagne on a luxury boat — after he was freed by a loophole.The Sun reports http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/5051135/paedo-warwick-spinks-freed-by-loophole-living-in-prague.html
Evil Warwick Spinks, dubbed the Pied Piper of Paedophiles, was extradited from the Czech Republic in November after 15 years on the run.
The Mail reported http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2234679/Britains-wanted-paedophile-Warren-Spinks-kidnapped-sold-young-boys-abuse-finally-caught-15-years-run.html
He should have then served the last 18 months of his five-year jail term. But when he was caged back in 1995 the law only allowed officials to make offenders serve part of a sentence before automatically freeing them.
That loophole was closed for absconders last year but it cannot be enforced retrospectively.
So officials had to free Spinks FOUR MONTHS after his recapture.
The pot-bellied paedo, who now calls himself property tycoon Willem van Wijk, celebrated his freedom and 49th birthday with a bash for 14 pals, including toyboy Vladimir, 34.
The Sun watched as he:
SIPPED champagne with pals at a luxury floating restaurant.
UNWRAPPED creepy presents including an edible thong.
WRITHED with male go-go dancers, saying: “You’re only as young as the boy you’re feeling.”
CAVORTED starkers in a glass-sided plunge pool with a Slovak lad in front of other perverts.
A source said: “Spinks should be behind bars. Many people in Prague were shocked to see him back so soon acting as if nothing had happened. He is cocking a snook at British justice.”
Spinks was first identified as a dangerous child abuser in 1992. He divided his time between England and Amsterdam, introducing sex tourists to young boys.
He told one undercover cop he could arrange sex with boys in Germany, Prague and Poland for as little as 10p. He was also secretly taped offering to supply a “snuff” video in which a boy, ten, was killed for kicks.
In 1995 he was jailed for seven years at Lewes Crown Court, East Sussex, for several offences against underage boys.
His sentence was cut to five years on appeal but when let out on licence in 1997 he fled the UK, violating his probation conditions.
Spinks was tracked down in Prague in 2000 running sex tours for paedophiles. But he evaded justice and was finally extradited last November, a coup hailed by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre.
It had branded him “one of the most notorious and violent offenders we have ever dealt with”.
The Ministry of Justice refused to comment last night. But a source admitted Spinks’s release was “embarrassing”.
In Prague, where the age of consent is 15 and prostitution is legal for over 18s, vile Spinks aims to take advantage.
He told our undercover man: “I fully intend getting old disgracefully.”
Trail of a brute
1992: HE is quizzed by London cops on links to Euro paedo rings. He fixes sex with boys for tourists in Holland and offers to sell sick torture films.

1995: SPINKS is jailed at Lewes, Sussex, for offences including drugging and kidnapping the 14-year-old boy and committing sex acts on him.
1997: DESCRIBED as “one of Britain’s most dangerous paedophiles”, Spinks is released from prison on licence and immediately flees.
1998: THE fiend sets up an agency in Prague after flitting between boltholes. A warrant is issued when he is spotted in the Canaries in 2001.
2012: SPINKS is finally flown back to the UK and arrested at Heathrow. But he is freed in 2013 and returns to his old haunts in Prague.
Warwick Spinks arrest: Child sex attacker back in prison
Horrifying back catalogue of abuse led to his nickname ‘the Pied Piper of Paedophiles’ after bragged he could arrange sex with young boys for as little as 10p
A violent child sex offender who fled the UK and went on the run for 15 years is back in jail after being arrested in the Czech Republic.
Warwick Spinks, 48, was arrested at Heathrow after being flown from Prague on Thursday, the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) said.
He was also caught on secret camera offering to supply a video in which a 10 year old boy was killed and one featuring the horrific abuse of a young boy.
CEOP said Spinks was convicted in 1995 at Lewes Crown Court of numerous sexual offences against boys in Hastings.
He was jailed for seven years, reduced to five years on appeal in 1996.
His offences included serious sexual assault at knifepoint, taking indecent images of children and taking a child without lawful authority.
He was released on licence on condition that he was not allowed to leave the UK without permission.
Following extradition from the Czech Republic he will serve the 18 remaining months of his sentence.
His arrest followed an international investigation involving officers from CEOP, the Metropolitan Police and the Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca).
Spinks was arrested by Czech police in August 2012. He had been using numerous aliases , including Willem Van Wijk and William Spinks, CEOP said.
Fugitive paedophile who runs package tours for perverts to prey on childrenA PLOT by Britain’s most wanted paedophile to run child-sex holidays for perverts has been smashed by the Sunday People.
Evil Warwick Spinks is cashing in by organising “package tours” for sicko clients to prey on teenage boys.
We tracked down runaway Spinks, 35, to the Czech capital of Prague, Europe’s new perverts’ paradise.
The brute BOASTED how he used the Internet to lure men from Britain and the rest of Europe by promising tours of pick-up bars and providing apartments where the sex beasts could take youngsters.
Spinks fled Britain three years ago – breaking conditions of parole – after his early release from a jail term for drugging and kidnapping a 14-year-old boy who he SOLD to a gay brothel in Holland.
The fiend – described by police as one of Britain’s most dangerous paedophiles – was also suspected of masterminding an international paedophile ring and being involved in “snuff movies”. He faces instant arrest if he returns home.
Spinks BRAGGED to our investigators – posing as sex tour operators: “In Prague, a boy will spend the night with you for 400 Kronas, less than pounds 10. Just put the men on a plane and leave the rest to me. I can provide accommodation, transport and the personal touch.”
The Sunday People has put paid to Spinks’s sick scheme by blowing his cover. We can reveal today how he:
-POSES as a Dutch property consultant, using the name Wilhelm Pavel;
-SHAVED off his moustache in a bid to alter his appearance and rarely ventures far without minders;
-HIDES away in a flat in one of the smarter suburbs of Prague, a magnet for perverts because the age of consent for gay sex is only 15;
-USES e-mail and hidden websites to keep his tours secret from the authorities;
-PLOTS to make Prague as popular as Thailand for paedophiles. The city’s police have heard of kiddies as young as eight selling their bodies.
-TAUNTED Scotland Yard detectives who long to put him back behind bars and protectchildren.
Spinks, who claims to speak eight languages, boasted: “I know all the right boys. They’re all bisexual in this country. Any boy is available at the right price.
“I already have a lot of clients from Holland, Germany and Belgium. In June I have 20 arriving here. They are all spoilt b******s with lots of money.
“Amsterdam is played out now and all my old friends have moved here as well. The beauty of this place is that, like the Dutch, they have no hang-ups about sex.
“The boys are as cheap as in Thailand but are just two hours away from London by plane. The average wage here is only pounds 200 a month.
“I provide apartments because you will have a problem taking a boy back to a hotel room. There are security men on every floor and they will not allow visitors no matter how much you have paid.”
Spinks, who had his gay lover Jakob, 22, in tow, said: “Between us we have eight apartments with access to another 68.
“My apartments will give you the freedom to do what you like when you like. They are all nicely furnished and in the right locations for nightlife. I use clubs like Pinocchio’s or Escape where you get lads on the run from conscription into the army. Some of them are stunning.”
Spinks, from Greenwich, South London, proudly explained how he contacts the scum who use his services. He said: “I don’t need to advertise but have a website run by a friend in Budapest.
“Most business is by word of mouth. I have a lot of regulars who know they can trust me. The boys are also trustworthy. You don’t have to worry about them stealing from you.”
Spinks then explained how he looks after the needs of his pervert punters.
He said: “We can pick them up by car from the airport or organise a minibus if it is a large group. We will drop them off at apartments and take them out for personalised tours of all the best places.”
Spinks tries to meet any needs of his clients – down to a supply of Diet Coke in the fridge.
He said: “They all want boys. We will be flat out pampering them. Most of our business is repeat business and clients won’t come back if we don’t look after them properly.”
Spinks was convicted in 1995 of abducting the 14-year-old.
He drugged the lad, who had run away from a children’s home, and sold him as a rent boy in Holland. British and Dutch police launched an investigation after the boy fled to the British Embassy.
Spinks got seven years, cut to five years on appeal. Officers from Scotland Yard’s PaedophileSquad were furious when he got parole in 1997 after 30 months. He ignored conditions that he be supervised by probation officers and sign the Sex Offenders Register and fled – sending cops a taunting postcard from Holland.
International businessmen, lawyers and politicians were among Spinks’s clients when he ran the notorious Why Not boy brothel in Amsterdam before his arrest.
Cops in Amsterdam secretly taped Spinks offering to supply a video in which a 10-year-old boy was killed. He also said an associate had seen a boy die in the making of a film.
Spinks told our investigators at a meeting in Prague’s Wenceslas Square: “Scotland Yard would love to get their hands on me because they wasted pounds 2million investigating me.” Two minders watched from a nearby car as Spinks added: “I am well protected here.”
When one minder rumbled our photographer, Spinks started ranting and had to be calmed by passing policemen
