PHOTOS: Paedophile doll maker insists he is 'saving children'

16 August 2016, 14:19

Abuja - A man who creates child-like paedophilic dolls has claimed that he was merely producing his creations to "save children".

According to a report by the UK Metro, Shin Takagi, a paedophile himself, has insisted that he is an artist who is making the dolls in order to prevent other paedophiles from living their fantasies out in real-life.

Since 2013, Takagi has had 18 crates of his creations confiscated by border control officials in Australia who believe that the dolls are "objectionable".

Takagi could face hefty fines or up to 10 years of jail time under the Australian Customs Act 1901.

All the dolls have reportedly been destroyed, with the Australian Border Force working closely with officials to ensure that all citizens seeking possession of such objects be brought before the courts.

See pictures of the horrifying creations below.
