CHILD SEX SHAME OF SCOTS TOFF; He molested Thai lads, court told.

A pervert Scots toff molested naked boys on a paradise island, a court in Thailand heard yesterday.

Ex-public schoolboy James Fraser-Darling, the son of a knighted Oxford don, denies preying on nine lads aged between seven and 13.

The self-confessed paedophile faces 18 indecency charges, each of which carries a maximum 10-year jail term.

Thai child welfare groups want him severely punished, to deter other Western perverts.

Fraser-Darling, 47, who was a university teacher on the holiday island of Phuket, is accused of assaulting boys who played naked in the sea near his home.

He bought them presents including bikes and took them on naked picnics to nearby islands, it is claimed.

Fraser-Darling and other Westerners allegedly molested the boys at the picnics and in Fraser- Darling's cottage near the poor village of Rawai.

The boys showed investigators photos of themselves naked with the man they knew as "Uncle James".

More nude pictures were found at Fraser-Darling's home, along with a magazine article on "boy love" written by a J.Darling. Fraser-Darling denies being the author.

Fraser-Darling, who went to posh Repton school, was arrested in November 1995 after a colleague at the university reported him.

He was about to leave Thai-land for Cambodia when police swooped.

The pervert was taken from prison to court in his brown jail uniform early yesterday. His ankles were chained.

Fraser-Darling admitted he was a paedophile.

But he denied the charges, claiming he was a scapegoat in Thailand's "witch- hunt" against child sex perverts.

Fraser-Darling's father is Scots academic Sir Frank Fraser-Darling, an expert on Scottish birds and Hebridean wildlife. He also has a brother in the Diplomatic Corps.
