Restrictions lifted on man convicted of sex crimes abroad

VANCOUVER — A man convicted in absentia of sex crimes against children in Cambodia has been allowed unrestricted freedom in Canada, even though the Crown expressed concerns when he was arrested that he was a danger to children. While a judge granted a restraining order against Orville Mader meant to protect children back in 2007, that order has been allowed to lapse. Now, it's unclear whether the man who has not been charged with offences is Canada will be free to travel to other countries.

Mader faces a 15-year jail term in Cambodia for sex crimes against children and was accused of sex crimes against a 13-year-old boy in Thailand, but travelled back to Canada shortly after the charges were laid. When he arrived in Vancouver in late 2007 carrying nothing but his laptop computer, he was arrested and held. At the time, the Crown said investigators were working on sex-tourism charges against Mader. In the meantime a judge granted an order under Section 810.1 of the Criminal Code when prosecutor Wendy van Tongeren Harvey said there were concerns he was a danger to children.

"He's attracted to not only boys, but young boys. We're seeking conditions where children are safe," she told the provincial court judge in 2007. Details of the court proceedings that day were protected by a publication ban that has now expired. Among his many restrictions, Mader was ordered to stay away from children and anywhere they might congregate, to stay off the Internet, to give up his passport and to report on a regular basis to the authorities near where he was staying in Surrey, B.C.

Van Tongeren Harvey told the judge during the November 2007 hearing that Mader detailed his tastes for young boys during email conversations found on his computer. "He described boys coming into his room, his sexual preferences," she told the court. "He had eight boys over 11 days ... including one tiny 11-year-old boy he called a 'sweetie pie."

No limits for B.C. man convicted in Cambodia

Convicted of child sex crimes in Cambodia, wanted in Thailand

A man convicted of sex crimes against children in Cambodia has unrestricted freedom in Canada, even though the Crown expressed concerns he was a danger to children. While a judge granted a restraining order against Orville Mader meant to protect children back in 2007, that order has been allowed to lapse.

Mader — who was charged in absentia in Asia and has not been charged with offences in Canada — faces a 15-year jail term in Cambodia after he was convicted for sex crimes against children in 2004. He was also accused of sex crimes against a 13-year-old boy in Thailand in 2007, but travelled back to Canada shortly after the charges were laid.
