Rob Gilchrist sent naked photos of teenage activist to police
Further in the emails sent by Rob Gilchrist to the police counter-terrorism units, was an email sent on 30/07/2005,
containing naked photographs of a female and then teenage activist, sent with the subject line “needs a shave....”.
For obvious reasons of privacy, I will not release the photographs themselves or the details of the activist concerned.
However I feel that this matter is of huge significance, since this brings into question whether police attitudes
towards women have actually changed in the wake of the recent police rape trials, police pornography scandal, and
subsequent recommendations by Dame Margaret Bazley.
There is no evidence that the police objected to the “needs a shave....” email, and clearly Rob Gilchrist had reason to
believe that police would want to receive such an email. On the contrary, the fact that the police continued paying Rob
Gilchrist $600 per week for over another 3 years, shows they did not view his conduct as grossly inappropriate.
Also discovered on Rob Gilchrist's computer were naked photos of a then 16 year old activist, which look to have been
taken while she was sleeping. Naturally, I am left wondering if those were forwarded to the police, and whether any
photographs of a similar nature were taken of me and sent to the police.
Rob Gilchrist also had photographs on his computer he had taken of the previously mentioned 16 year old girl, and
another 16 year old female activist, taken seperately, with them posing with his guns. This included shots of one of the
said girls posing with one of Rob's guns pointed to her head, and in her mouth. The photographs showed these girls in
various outfits, including full camoflague, and some of one of them with a towel in her hair, clearly having just got
out of the shower.
A rather large pornography collection with some disturbing videos and images was also present on Rob Gilchrist's
If at the time of our relationship I had had any knowledge of Rob Gilchrist's sexist attitudes towards women, or his now
obvious repeated interest in very young women, I would not have gone near him. The whole thing makes me feel sick.
