Preacher: Perv is my pal

A preacher has defended his decision to let a pervert “pal” meet his two young daughters — when the sex-pest was banned from contacting kids.

Minister Martin Tuson threw a tea party for serial offender Harold Burke at his family home, North Down Magistrates Court heard last week.

But sleazy Burke was breaking his Sexual Offences Prevention Order by breaking bread with the churchman at his house in Bangor, Co Down.



Burke’s SOPO bars him from associating with anyone under the age of 18 without the permission of social services. Yet Minister Tuson’s two young girls, aged five and 12, were at home while the perv scoffed supper at his house.
