A POLICE analysis of computer files of suspected French child pornographer Pierre

Guynot has revealed "thousands" of sadistic pornographic images of minors

as well as plans for a bizarre Sihanoukville-based sex club specializing in the sadomasochistic

abuse of children.

Computer technicians with the Ministry of Interior's Law Enforcement Against Sexual

Exploitation of Children Project (LEASECP) opened the computer in the presence of

Guynot and the Sihanoukville prosecutor on June 8. Analysis of Guynot's files have

revealed the existence of huge numbers of pornographic images of children with their

genitals bound with sado-masochistic accessories.

"Over the past two weeks we have discovered that Guynot had stored thousands

of pornographic photos of children in his computer," said Chrinn Vanne, LEASECP's

chief investigating officer, adding that Guynot's photo collection included images

of both Cambodian children that he is suspected of victimizing as well as images

he is believed to have downloaded from other child pornography suppliers.

"Evidence suggests that [Guynot] was selling these photos over the Internet."

Guynot, 44, was arrested on May 31 and is facing charges of debauchery involving

child pornography, illegal weapons possession, and illegal detention.

The abuse allegedly occurred at Guynot's Sihanoukville go-cart business involving

"adopted" male street children and boys from the Sihanoukville area.

Guynot is currently being confined at Sihanoukville Provincial Hospital due to a

suspected heart ailment.

"We suspect the go-cart business was a front that allowed him to assemble boys

and take pornographic photos of them...the go-cart business never had many customers

[to justify its operations]," Vanne said.

"We also know that he attempted to prevent us from getting access to his computer

because he was transmitting images of [naked] boys... that's his business, and his

computer was vital to him."

More disturbing to investigators was the discovery in Guynot's computer of detailed

plans and blueprints for the "Sihanoukville Dungeon/Savage Men's Club".

The plans listed prices ("Annual fee $100, $75 in case of negative blood test")

and invited those interested in "S&M boys only" to "...experiment

your wishes, try your nightmare".

Meanwhile Post sources in Sihanoukville report that on June 20 Guynot received an

unspecified sum of money from relatives in France, funds which it is feared might

be utilized to facilitate his release.
