Geoffrey William Moyle Biography
Who is Geoffrey William Moyle ?
Geoffrey William Moyle from Adelaide pleaded guilty to s*xually abusing the children – aged between 10 and 12 – while he worked as a foreign aid worker in Cambodia between 2002 and 2005.
A 20-year manhunt had been ongoing to find Moyle, otherwise known as ‘Waka’, who was one of the first to film child abuse and upload it online for others to see.
To fellow peadophiles, he was praised as the man who ‘wrote the Bible on child abuse’ and had played a huge role in creating the online exploitation trade, The Advertiser reported.
The 47-year-old was jailed on Friday for eight years and nine months.
How old is Geoffrey William Moyle ?
He is 47 year old.
He was also sentenced to nine months for possessing exploitative child material in Australia.
Moyle received a four-year, six-month non-parole period, but Judge Paul Cuthbertson took into account the two years he had already served in custody, meaning he could be paroled in 2024.
All the videos he shared had been filmed by himself and compiled into ‘collections’ for others to view online.
The girls he abused are understood to have been s*x slaves of minors detained in Cambodian brothels.
He was first investigated in 2019 by AFP after he posted an interest in young Asian girls on a known child abuse website.
Detectives found USB containing child exploitative material, but subsequent investigations revealed that a man with the same name was wanted by both the Cambodian police and the US Department of Homeland Security.
Homeland Security Investigation authorities had managed to arrest 72 members of an online pedophile bulletin board and, while Moyle escaped undetected, he left an IP address.

He never showed his face or spoke in his disgusting home videos, but was eventually caught when authorities were able to match a watch, shoes and a bulge on his thigh with Moyle’s.
SA police detectives had to examine the gruesome footage to try to identify their victims as the JACET child exploitation task force concentrated on finding the man responsible.
When his parents’ home was raided, detectives found photos of Moyle wearing the same pair of shoes and a wristwatch that they had seen in the disturbing videos.
Moyle also had his victims hold his camera remote while he abused them with detectives who saw this same remote in his hand in another photograph.
Only three of the six victims were identified and one was found.
Earlier this year, one of his victims demanded $ 84,000 compensation, which Moyle agreed to pay.
Judge Cuthbertson said Moyle was engaged in the “most vile s*xual activity” against children.
“Did you know that by putting his images on the global web, you would perpetuate his shame and jeopardize his future,” he said.
“You did this for your own satisfaction and without regard for the welfare of the children you abused.”
The judge also said Moyle had shown remorse, had a low risk of recidivism and was a “loving father, son and husband,” ABC reported.
AFP Detective Superintendent Gail McLure spoke out of court after sentencing, saying the victims Moyle abused were forever affected.
“The girls who were abused by this criminal are now young women, yet their lives have been affected, their childhood has been stolen,” she said.
“I would like to issue a warning to any individual seeking to prey on vulnerable children.”
“The AFP and its partners will come for you, no matter when the abuse occurred and no matter where you are in the world, there is nowhere to hide.”
