Accused Austrian paedophile could face long jail term after extradition

An Austrian paedophile arrested in Vietnam will face a jail term of up to 15 years for child sex abuse once back in his home country, Austrian police have said. Vietnam police handed over Peter Mueller—wanted by Austria and Interpol and detained since late December—to their Austrian counterpart at a meeting in HCM City Tuesday afternoon.
The Austrian representative thanked Vietnam police for their support in arresting and extraditing him.
Mueller, 69, also known as Bradford, has confessed to having sexual intercourse with three underage Vietnamese boys who also told the police about his obscene acts.
“I will come back”
In a thank-you letter to the Vietnamese authorities, Mueller said he would come back to the country.
“I love Vietnam very much, and will return to live in Vietnam after serving the jail term,” reads the letter, which he wrote while extradition formalities were being carried out at the city airport Tan Son Nhat.
He also thanked Vietnamese superintendents for their “kind treatments” to him which included providing expensive medicine for his illnesses.
According to Interpol, Mueller had molested at least seven children aged 7 to 14 in Italy, Spain, and the Netherlands before fleeing to Vietnam in late 2003.
He was arrested on December 27, 2005 at his rented house in HCM City where he lived with a 14-year-old boy. He was then a teacher at a local English learning centre.
