Name: ROBERT EARNEST EXCELL (Deceased 2011)

Age: 72 yrs old (2011)

State: (WA)

Sentence: Excell has spent 37 yrs in jail and is considered one of WA's worst child sex offenders.Convictions include- sodomy/ sexually abusing young boys.

Offence/Other: Excell was paroled on 3 occasions and re-offended each time. Denied parole in Dec 2002. Is being deported to the UK, upon his release from jail 23-3-2005.(He was not deported as expected,still in jail at this stage) Has child sex convictions dating back to 1965. Has since being deported (July 2005).

DEPORTING EXCELL: You could safely say ,what politician in their right mind would give a convicted sex offender a visa .. political suicide and you would have every paedophile from around the world applying for one !!
It is a catch 22 with current legislation,Excell should not be released.The WA Government are saying they will not release him into an Australian community to molest again, so they recognise the dangers he (paedophiles) poses to children ,so why release him then-EVER!! Australia needs to introduce legislation to jail paedophiles/sex offenders who re/offend for life, keeping them away from children for good-Why risk another child being abused..?? Releasing him into an unsuspecting community to possibly molest another Australian child would be inexcusable and unfortunately current Australian laws are allowing many 1000's of child sex offenders to live secretly in Australian communities to possibly strike again-see community notification ?? While you can understand the UK not wanting him back, we have enough sex offenders here in Australia already,and unless he is locked up for good (as he should be in our humble opinion) he is a UK citizen, not an Australian and has no right to be here, except in a cell....

Paedophile's years of abuse

One of WA's most notorious paedophiles was secretly preying on boys at Fairbridge Farm School more than a decade before his first arrest on sexual abuse charges, a victim has revealed.
Robert Ernest Excell, who attained notoriety for spending 37 years in WA prisons after a string of sex crimes against children as young as seven, can now be shown to have begun a lifetime of child rape earlier than ever suspected.
Revelations about his unpunished, early crimes against young children have emerged along with evidence Excell was himself a victim of sexual abuse at Fairbridge.
Documentation obtained by _The West Australian _, including an unpublished manuscript the sex offender wrote in prison, shows Excell was forcibly sent to the Fairbridge Farm School as a child migrant where he says he was sexually abused by staff during the 1950s.
The serial sex fiend's previously hidden reign of terror at the farm school is the latest bombshell to rock the ailing Fairbridge reputation, after _The Weekend West _revealed that more than 200 child migrants forcibly sent to the institution have been awarded more than $1.1 million in ex-gratia payments by the WA Government for sexual, psychological and physical abuse they suffered there while in State care.
A child migrant, who asked not to be named, has spoken out about the abuse he suffered at the hands of Excell.
He said he was one of several children who were molested by Excell in the 1950s when the paedophile was a teenager.
The child migrant said he was too afraid to report the incident to Fairbridge staff at the time.
"This bloke (Excell), he threatened us," he said. "I was a young bloke and he was near enough to being as big as a full-sized man. When you've got a bloke like that you just shut up."
_The West Australian _has sighted the Redress WA application in which the victim detailed Excell's abuse.
The WA Government, which accepted the victim's claim, awarded him just over $10,000.
Alarmingly, the child migrant said he believed the extent of Excell's sex crimes against Fairbridge children could be much more widespread, because after leaving the institution staff allowed him to return and "help out, with the kids."
In a 99-year-old registry book - missing for decades until it was anonymously dropped off at the farm school last year - Excell is listed as having arrived at Fairbridge on June 24, 1950, at age 11.
Excell, who says he was first molested as a boy in Britain, wrote that he was raped by a staff member at Fairbridge.
In his prison manuscript, Excell wrote that his abuser was still working at Fairbridge and molesting children there when he returned at age 21. He said the children had asked him if he was aware this staff member was a predator.
"I said I knew that from when I was a kid, they said he had a couple of regulars and kept them in money."
Excell also chillingly wrote of the sickening thoughts going through his tortured mind when he took children on unsupervised outings.
"They all went in swimming. In my mind was to ask them if the sex stuff still went on in the cottages - right at that moment I felt like holding one of them."
He admitted touching at least one child under the guise of "fooling around" and wrote that he wanted the minor to commit sex acts on him.
One child migrant, who did not wished to be named, said there were at least three paedophiles among the Fairbridge staff that preyed on children in the 1950s.
Excell was first jailed in 1965 after he sodomised a seven-year-old boy. In 1973, he raped a nine-year-old boy and in 1977, he raped a 13-year-old boy.
Excell was freed in 1981 but within 18 months was charged with sex crimes against a nine and 10-year-old boy. Excell drove the children to the Fairbridge area where he made them commit indecent acts with each other and with him.
In July 2005, former attorney-general Jim McGinty deported him to Britain.
In May 2010, a British tabloid photographed him reportedly "leering" at schoolchildren.
He died in January last year, aged 72, according to reports in the British press. Fairbridge WA Inc, the modern day organisation that operates on part of the old farm school site, was formed in 1983 and has no links with child migration.

Australia To Deport UK Paedophile

A British-born paedophile who has spent 37 years in jail in Australia for sex attacks is to be deported to the UK.
Robert Excell, who attacked four boys, would be sent to the UK "within days", officials in Western Australia said.
Excell, 66, who emigrated to Australia aged 10 but never became a citizen, is being freed because of his poor health, age and support from his wife.
Psychologists say he poses a "moderate" risk of reoffending. He will be put on the UK sex offenders' register.
Excell had been expected back in the UK as early as Thursday, but his departure was delayed as Australian immigration officials said they would investigate his case.
'Reoffending risk'
Excell's convictions date back to 1965, when he was jailed for an attack on a seven-year-old boy.
Since then he has been paroled three times and reoffended on all three occasions.
Three years ago the state government in Western Australia intervened after a parole board decided to let Excell walk free.
It said he was such a danger he should stay in prison indefinitely. But he will be now released from prison in Perth before being put on a flight to the UK.
'Visa cancelled'
Western Australia attorney general Jim McGinty told ABC radio he was not prepared to allow Excell to walk free there.
"He's had his visa cancelled. He is not an Australian citizen," said Mr McGinty.
"He came to Australia many, many years ago and then very seriously abused the privilege of residency here by committing the serious crimes that he did."
The British Home Office would not comment directly on the case of Excell but said protecting children was "of the highest priority" to the government.
A spokeswoman said sex offenders deported to the UK are interviewed by Special Branch who "pass any relevant information to the police in the area to which the offender is proposing to live".
However, Norman Brennan, director of the Victims of Crime Trust, called on the Australian authorities to reconsider their decision to release Excell.
"This individual poses a maximum danger to children and has committed crime after crime after crime of the worst degrading types of paedophilia," he said.

Pedophile To Benefit

Convicted pedophile Robert Excell will reportedly recieve more than $18,000 in benefits from the British Government, angering his vicitms and anti-child abuse campaigners.
The 67-year-old, who was deported to the UK from Perth last year, will be paid $18,894.66 in backdated benefits.
His victims in Australia say they are sickened by the government's decision.

Pedophile To Be Deported

A notorious West Australian pedophile is set to be deported to Britain next month after police ruled out charging him over the alleged rape of a teenager in prison.
British-born Robert Ernest Excell, 66, had been set to be returned to the UK in March after WA Attorney-General Jim McGinty agreed to release him from prison on parole on the condition that he be immediately deported.
The proposed deportation was delayed while police investigated a former prisoner's claims Excell assaulted him when he was an 18-year-old inmate at a maximum-security prison, but today WA police confirmed their investigation was complete and no charges would be laid.
Excell's parole hearing will now go ahead early next month, when it seems certain he will be released and immediately flown to the UK under escort.
Today, Mr McGinty said the decision was a difficult one, but he was not prepared to have Excell free in WA.
"There is no prospect of Mr Excell ever being released into the WA community. He will be released solely for the purposes of deportation, and he will be taken straight from prison to the airport to be deported to Britain," Mr McGinty said.
"Whenever you are dealing with the question of release of serious prisoners and Mr Excell has been a serial paedophile since 1965 in this state it obviously weighs heavily on you.
"The parole board has recommended his release on parole, I have said I am not prepared to release Mr Excell into the WA community. I am however prepared to have him deported."
Excell has spent 37 of the past 39 years in the West Australian prison system for convictions dating back to 1965, when he sodomised a seven-year-old boy.
He has been paroled from prison three times and re-offended on each occasion, but is now considered to be a "low-to-moderate" risk.
John Hammond, the lawyer representing the teenager who claimed to have been assaulted by Excell in jail, disagreed with the risk assessment.
"(My client) stands by the allegations he was raped in prison, that he was raped by Robert Excell and that Excell is a person who will commit these crimes in or out of prison," Mr Hammond said.
"(Excell) will be under a home detention program but he will be free to roam the streets. He represents a danger to the British community, most definitely."
Sue Walker, the state opposition's justice spokeswoman, described the decision to deport Excell as a cowardly way out.
"Mr McGinty will have that on his conscience if Mr Excell rapes again," she told ABC radio.
Mr McGinty said Excell would be met by the British police on his arrival and would be placed on the Sex Offenders Register, which will impose reporting requirements on him.

Way Cleared For Paedophile's Deportation

A path has been cleared for the deportation of notorious Western Australian paedophile Robert Excell to Britain.
The 67-year-old was due to be deported earlier this year but it was delayed when rape allegations against him surfaced.
A former Casuarina inmate, who wants to be known as John, alleged he was raped and abused by Excell in 1992 and again in 1998 while in prison.
A police spokesman has confirmed the claims were not substantiated in an investigation.
He says police will not pursue any further charges against Excell.
John's lawyer, John Hammond, says he is disappointed and understands Excell could be deported within days.

Pedophile's Release, Deportation Delayed

BRITISH-born serial pedophile Robert Ernest Excell will remain in a West Australian prison as authorities investigate new claims he twice raped a fellow inmate.
Controversy has surrounded Western Australia's Attorney-General Jim McGinty's decision to allow Excell, 66, to be granted parole on the proviso he be deported to the UK.
Mr McGinty said Excell was "low to moderate risk of reoffending", which meant he posed an unacceptable risk to the WA community, but he accepted the state parole board's recommendation he be released and deported immediately.
The decision has sparked outrage in the UK, with a police officer, a peak UK child protection agency and a pedophile monitoring group expressing serious concerns through the media.
Excell, who emigrated to Australia from Britain as a child, has spent 37 of the past 39 years in WA's prison system for a string of child sex offences.
He was originally due to be sent home yesterday but the process was delayed.
Mr McGinty then said Excell would leave within days, but serious allegations of rape have since emerged.
A former prisoner, who did not want to be identified, claimed today that Excell sexually assaulted him in 1992 and 1998 when they were both inmates at Casuarina prison.
The father of four said he was dragged into Excell's cell when he was serving a stint for fraud and robbery offences as an 18-year-old.
"After that my pants were pulled down and I was held down and raped by Excell," he said.
"Straight after that I have got out of the cell and went straight to the (supervisor's) office and I had about 20 officers come there.
"I told them about it and some of them just laughed at me and took me down to the medics.
"I was still put back in the same block as Excell that day."
A medical report was made but the matter went no further, the man said.
He said he was disillusioned and did not report a further rape in 1998, in which he said Excell and two other men put blankets over their heads before grabbing him and sexually assaulting him.
Lawyer John Hammond said he wrote to Mr McGinty late yesterday and asked that the deportation process be delayed while his client's allegations were investigated.
Police confirmed the complaint was being examined and Mr McGinty's office later issued a one-paragraph statement.
"The Parole Board has today advised that Robert Excell will not be released from prison on parole before July 1, 2005 because of the possibility of investigations by the Department of Justice and the WA Police," it said.
Excell's convictions date back to 1965 when he sodomised a seven-year-old boy.
He has since been paroled three times, reoffending on each occasion.

Don't Send Rapist Here- UK police

British police last night accused the WA Government of a sickening betrayal after Attorney-General Jim McGinty decided to grant parole to serial child rapist Robert Ernest Excell, triggering his deportation to Britain.
Const. Norman Brennan, a veteran officer who is also the national director of Britain'sVictims of Crime Trust, urged Mr McGinty to rethink his decision, saying he had no right to put the lives of British children at such risk.
"It shows how much contempt they have for us," he said. "I thought we had a friendlier relationship with the Australians. This is a betrayal which will make every British parent sick."
The 67-year-old rapist, one of WA's longest-serving prisoners, has spent 37 of the past 39 years in prison for repeated assaults on young boys.
Two years ago, Mr McGinty rejected a Parole Board decision to release Excell, saying the safety of Perth's children was a priority. "The risk is far too great," he said at the time.
"With some people, their offence is so horrific and the damage to others is so horrific that you can't contemplate their release."
But yesterday Mr McGinty said that Excell's circumstances had changed. "The fact that he is now old, sick and even the suggestion that he has lost his sexual functioning (combined) with the fact that he would never be allowed freedom in Western Australia tipped the balance," he said.
Mr McGinty said the Federal Government had already moved to deport Excell following a High Court ruling on the serial paedophile.
Police around Britain are bracing themselves for the arrival of Excell, who is due to be released from Acacia Prison today and flown to London within 48 hours.
As soon as he lands, his details will be posted on the national sex offenders' register.
"As if the rape of one child is not bad enough. How many more children have to have their lives destroyed before they and the rest of society are protected? How can the Australians say this man is an absolute danger and we don't want him in society but then be prepared to release him to another country?" Const. Brennan said.
Excell was first jailed in 1965 after he sodomised a seven-year-old boy.
He was released on parole in 1973 but raped a nine-year-old boy within days. In 1977, he was granted parole again but was convicted of raping a 13-year-old boy four months after his release.
Excell last tasted freedom in 1981 but within 18 months he was charged with indecently dealing with a boy under 14 years of age, two counts of deprivation of liberty and one count of assault. He was detained at the governor's pleasure.

Paedophile's UK Move Postponed

A British-born paedophile due to be deported today from Australia will remain behind bars there - at least for now.
Immigration officials stepped in at the last minute to block the deportation from Perth to England of 66-year-old Robert Earnest Excell.
It came after Western Australia's attorney-general Jim McGinty agreed to release Excell on condition he was immediately repatriated to Britain, where he lived until he was 10.
Mr McGinty had previously refused Excell parole because he still posed a danger to children.
Excell, who is married, has spent 37 years behind bars for four separate convictions of sexually abusing and molesting boys as young as seven.
When freed on good behaviour in the past, he has preyed on little boys and committed similar crimes. Even his wife said she would not leave her grandchildren alone with him.
The federal immigration department's decision to step in means Excell will remain in prison until a final decision on deportation is taken.

"He cannot be released into the West Australian community and will not pose a threat to the West Australian community. "He's had his visa cancelled. He is not an Australian citizen. He came to Australia many, many years ago and then very seriously abused the privilege of residency here by committing the serious crimes that he did."
-Western Australia attorney-general Jim McGinty 23-3-05

DEPORTING EXCELL- You could safely say, what politician in their right mind would give a convicted sex offender a visa...political suicide and you would have every paedophile from around the world applying for one !!
It is a catch 22 with current legislation. Excell should not be released in the first place. The W.A Government are saying they will not release him into an Australian community to molest again. They recognise the dangers he (paedophiles) poses to children, so why release him then- EVER!! Australia needs to introduce legislation to jail paedophiles/ sex offenders who re-offend for life- Keeping them away from children for good- Why risk another child being abused..?? Many would say ,jail them for life after first conviction... Releasing him into an unsuspecting community to possibly molest another Australian child would be inexcusable and unfortunately current Australian laws are allowing many 1000's of child sex offenders to live secretly in Australian communities to possibly strike again- see community notification.. While you can understand the UK not wanting him back, we do have enough sex offenders here in Australia already, and unless he is locked up for good (as he should be in our humble opinion) he is a UK citizen, not an Australian and has no right to be here, except in a cell.

British Paedophile's Deportation Delayed

The deportation of a British paedophile who has spent 37 years in an Australian jail has been delayed while his case is reviewed.
Robert Excell, 66, who was born in the UK, was to have been flown home after serving his sentence for sex attacks on four boys.
Excell, who emigrated to Australia as a child but never became a citizen, was to have been freed because of his poor health and age and support from his wife.
However, according to an Australian news reports the deportation will not go ahead until government authorities have reviewed his case.
Excell is reportedly regarded as one of Western Australia's worst child abusers, with four separate convictions for sodomising and molesting young boys, dating back to 1965.
Since then he has been paroled three times and reoffended on all three occasions.
In November 2002 the state Government intervened to force him to remain in jail indefinitely, overruling a Parole Board decision to let him go free.
But Western Australia attorney-general Jim McGinty indicated he had changed his mind, consenting to Excell's release on the strict condition he be immediately deported.
Mr McGinty said: "He cannot be released into the West Australian community and will not pose a threat to the West Australian community.
"He's had his visa cancelled. He is not an Australian citizen. He came to Australia many, many years ago and then very seriously abused the privilege of residency here by committing the serious crimes that he did."
UK authorities will be notified of Excell's arrival and he would be listed on a child sex offender register but would have no formal parole conditions, Mr McGinty said.
Jim Magnus, a cousin of Excell's wife Maxine, said the family was happy he would be released but not pleased he would be deported.
"He wants to get out and he will take the price of going to England but he would much rather be in Australia where he has lived all his adult life ... and most of his childhood," Mr Magnus said.
Mr Magnus said Excell is unlikely to re-offend. He said: "He is no more capable than you or myself or anyone."

Child Abuser To Be Deported

A NOTORIOUS child abuser who has spent a total of 37 years behind bars is to be released from a West Australian prison tomorrow.
But he will be immediately deported to the United Kingdom, WA Attorney-General Jim McGinty said today.
Robert Earnest Excell, 66, is regarded as one of the state's worst child abusers, with four separate convictions for sodomising and molesting young boys.
In November 2002, the WA Government intervened to force Excell to remain in jail indefinitely, overruling a Parole Board decision to let him go free.
But Mr McGinty today indicated he had changed his mind, consenting to Excell's release tomorrow on the strict condition he be immediately deported.
Excell will tomorrow be taken from Perth's Acacia prison directly to immigration detention at Perth's airport for processing before being put on the first possible flight to UK.
"He cannot be released into the West Australian community and will not pose a threat to the West Australian community," Mr McGinty told ABC radio today.
"He's had his visa cancelled. He is not an Australian citizen. He came to Australia many, many years ago and then very seriously abused the privilege of residency here by committing the serious crimes that he did."
UK authorities will be notified of Excell's arrival and he would be listed on a child sex offender register but would have no formal parole conditions, Mr McGinty said.
"The Parole Board say that (he's) a low to moderate risk (of re-offending) and one that must be managed on a life-long basis and therefore they were prepared to recommend that he be released into the community here in Western Australia and I wasn't prepared to accept that," he said.
Excell's age, poor physical condition and ongoing support from his wife were factors in the decision to release him.
"I've got no interest in Mr Excell's welfare, I've only got an interest in making sure that he doesn't re-offend," Mr McGinty said.
Excell's convictions date back to 1965 when he sodomised a seven-year-old boy.
Since then he has been paroled three times and re-offended on all three occasions.
Jim Magnus, a cousin of Excell's wife Maxine, today said the family was happy he would be released but not pleased he would be deported.
"He wants to get out and he will take the price of going to England but he would much rather be in Australia where has lived all his adult life ... and most of his childhood," Mr Magnus told ABC radio.
