Protection from pedophile teachers has gaps

Once he was "Nicole", then "Luci" or "Camilla". With these code names and false profile picture, the Basel secondary school teacher on the Internet was as a teenager. These promising young people in various Chats free swift images. But only if you send first Nude pictures and pornographic Videos of himself. For ten years the man with this mesh came through. Over 50'000 shots the police made sure at the end.

a month Ago, the criminal court sentenced Basel-city, the 37-Year-old for sexual acts with children, and illegal pornography. He received a sentence of imprisonment of three years, one of them necessarily. According to the verdict, the offender lured nearly 200 boys in the case. Seven of them were disciples of his own. Nevertheless, his Name is not on the black list of teachers.

It is in the list to a Register in the cantons of those educators to enter, whom you have deprived of his teaching permission. This can be done because of mental illness or drug problems – in fact, the large landing part of the educators for sexual offences in the database.

9 names are

The Sunday Newspapers received half a year ago for the first time insight into the previously secret list. 95 teachers were noted. Now, the conference of cantonal Directors of education (EDK), which manages the data is granted, a request for re-inspection. It is shown that, in the meantime, nine more names are listed.

For example, one from Lucerne. "The entry was in connection with a child pornography criminal proceedings", it says on request from the education Department. This is a fallible teacher reports consistently, even during ongoing proceedings. "The Canton of the Well-being of learners and the Reputation of the schools is important," says spokeswoman Regula Huber. Also, the authorities in St. Gallen have recently reported another teacher, against whom a procedure is running. About the reasons the education Department is silent.

Two entries have been added from the Canton of Valais. There, the criminal process against a man who is said to have observed pupils from the age of eight when showers will begin tomorrow in Sierre. According to the indictment, he has also organised "sensory workshop" where children under a pretext to sexual acts have driven.

Some of the names were from the list

deleted in addition to new cases, but there are also teachers that disappear after a certain time of the black list. The data show that even in the current year, three names, from Zurich, will be deleted. Because the diploma was withdrawn only temporarily. Temporary measures are not able to expire, if it comes, for example, to criminal proceedings for the condemnation or the Person has retired in the meantime.

The Department of Education indicates that the corresponding teachers, to "Hands-on" offences, i.e. Assault with physical contact. "In the cases referred to it was Essentially child pornography," says member of the cantonal government and Director for Education Silvia Steiner .

Zurich, but even after these deletions, by far, the majority of people on the black list. 34 it is currently, then of St. Gallen (17) and Bern (15) follow. In contrast, half of the cantons reported currently not a single teacher. Basel-Stadt, Jura and many others, that there has been simply no case in which the display would have been.

In the Canton of Ticino and in the Canton of Vaud, however, had in the last few years, several publicized cases in which educators, some serious sexual offences committed. Nevertheless, are also reported from these cantons are no teachers. According to the Vaud education Directorate on a statutory basis, to participate in the black list. Already half a year ago, you announced plans to change this. The development was in the works, means it is now on request.

Ticino is omitted, however, in the future, to participate in the Register. Each applicant must submit an extract from the criminal register. It is required a special private extract the information about existing professional or bans. And candidates need to demonstrate that there is no procedure to run against you. "These instruments can fully meet the purpose of the black list has", says Emanuele Berger of the education Directorate.

A warranty, the black list offers.

However, the risk of a fallible Ticino teachers apply in another Canton on a place remains. And then not on the list. "For such a case, the Canton can not be made responsible," says Berger. "I can't imagine when such an important issue, that the other cantons shall take account of only this list and not other instruments, such as, for example, the extract from the criminal register."

This surprised to go it alone. Because the black list is part of the "recognition agreement" with the EDK. "This includes an obligation to report for all cantons," says General Secretary Susanne Hardmeier. "The EDK but with regard to the implementation of any Supervisory role or Supervisory skills." The list vis-ā-vis instruments, such as the extract from the criminal register has the advantage that it is not limited to certain Criminal convictions. "It includes, for example, Withdrawals due to addiction," says Hardmeier. "In addition, the cantons may revoke during the ongoing criminal proceedings, the teaching credential, at least temporarily. A provisional entry in the criminal register does not exist."

A guarantee, the black list offers. The shows now also the assistant teacher of almost 200 boys lewd images made it difficult to use. As the public Prosecutor's office, in 2014 opened a case against him, reported this to the education authorities of Basel-Landschaft. There, the man was informed at the time of the murder. However, only up 2013. "The teaching force in the year 2014, therefore, no current employment relationship," says Monique Juillerat of the education Directorate. Therefore, and because no valid judgment existed, had caused no entry to the black list.

The man moved further into the Aargau, where he worked in a music school. Just as a temp in the Secretariat. However, he was able to accompany two of fall camp for the children. Of the allegations you have learned until 2018, informed the school during the process. "The Board withdrew the employees immediately, all of the Dossiers."

On the black list, he has not been set but also now. He had not worked as a teacher and the Canton, as such, have been known, says Simone Strub from the education Department. To act", therefore, in relation to the black list, not a cause."
