A CHILD abuse campaigner is to name and shame 9,500 British paedophiles.

Chris Wittwer aims to set up the largest “private database” of UK-based sex offenders.

He posted the names and mugshots of nearly 6,000 sex offenders and paedophiles on Facebook in May.

But the site was closed down after complaints from the Association of Chief Police Officers about inappropriate messages posted on the site.

Now, after winning the backing of fellow campaigners and the authorities, he will add another 3,500 names to the original list and put them online again next month.

Chris also hopes it will give a boost to Sara Payne’s campaign to set up Sarah’s Law, a British version of Megan’s Law in the US which allows the publication of names and addresses of paedophiles.

Speaking exclusively to the Daily Star Sunday, Chris, 34, of Exeter, Devon, confirmed: “The new website is going to be up and running in the next month.

“Each offender has a profile, the date of conviction, their picture, the crime they have committed, the length of time they have been in prison and when they’re getting out.

“I’m also working on support for survivors of abuse. I want my website to help redirect all those who have suffered any type of abuse to get the right kind of help and support they need to rebuild their lives.”

Megan’s Law in the US has led to the details of 600,000 paedophiles and sex offenders being made public via the internet.

Sara Payne’s campaign to allow parents to see if there are perverts at large in their communities followed the kidnap and murder of her eight-year-old daughter Sarah in July 2000.

A pilot scheme was eventually introduced by four British police forces in 2008. If successful, it may be extended across the country.

Sex offenders and paedophiles are currently monitored under Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) on behalf of the jail authorities, the probation service and police.

But Chris warned: “In the UK there are 180,000 convicted paedophiles.

“But only 18,000 of those are being monitored by MAPPA. Who is monitoring the rest? And who knows when they are going to strike next?”

His records cover England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. But he plans to extend his website to include information on paedophiles and sex offenders in countries such as the Republic of Ireland and Australia.

The “Children Have Rights In Society” website will be at chris-uk.org next month.
