Over the weekend, news broke publicly of a sex scandal at Bishops involving a teacher, who has now resigned and left the school, and a matric pupil. The teacher, year-old Fiona Viotti above , is the daughter of Dave Mallett, the head of rugby at the school, and housemaster of Founders House. Viotti was allegedly involved with an year-old matric, who had tried to break off the relationship. The story has been widely covered by News24 and the Sunday Times , amongst others.
Bishops College – Who is Fiona Viotti?
Fiona Viotti is fighting the claims made against her, and has since hired top lawyer William Booth to aid her defence. The teacher is is the niece of former Bok rugby coach Nick Mallett. We are taking this very seriously. The teacher has resigned with immediate effect, and we have appointed an independent attorney to undertake an investigation. This rumour was quashed on Tuesday by William Booth. It was suggested that the educator had skipped South Africa for the UK, in an alleged bid to escape the cold pursuit of justice. But according to her legal team, she remains firmly rooted in the country. A clear distinction that has to be made is that the school is still handling things internally. She may face criminal charges down the line, and the issue may soon be escalated, but Fiona Viotti has not yet been the subject of an official police complaint.
And, it seems, it could also have been the scene of an even more intriguing photographic scandal, kept firmly under wraps. A film purporting to be based on fact will suggest that sexually compromising photographs of the princess taken on the island were at the centre of a bank robbery in The Bank Job, clips of which were shown at the Cannes Festival last week, has the photographs being placed in the bank for safe-keeping by Michael X, a well-known criminal originally from the Caribbean. It became known as the 'walkie-talkie bank job' because of a fluke tip-off from a member of the public who overheard the robbers talking on a two-way radio. But then mysteriously a government gagging order, a D notice, was imposed to prevent further coverage. Four men were jailed in for the raid and Michael X was hanged for murder in Trinidad in The film, written by Dick Clement and Ian Le Frenais, will claim it was the non-monetary contents of the safety deposit boxes which spurred the raid. Figures from the security services are said to have called on minor gangland contacts to initiate the raid, who in turn tipped off criminals who knew the bank would be easy to break into. The writers of the film claim to have spoken to figures who were directly involved with the robbery, who separately claimed that it was aimed at getting hold of the photographs.
After a "wife-swapping" sex scandal that allegedly involved Chinese Communist Party officials made international headlines this month, much has been speculated as to the nature of the swingers' tryst. But now as photos of the orgy begin to emerge on U. In this relatively chaste photo of five of the participants, three men apparently naked pose behind two women dressed in black camisoles:. Photo Credit: Baidu. The group went on to take more than pictures -- most of them explicitly pornographic. Yet as the Atlantic Wire notes , there are still a few "friendly v-for-victory hand signs and cheesy grins thrown in" the mix. The batch of photos, which allegedly features several participants during a hotel "sex party" in , was leaked online and quickly went viral across the Chinese Internet last week. According to the New Yorker , two government officials have been implicated as participants in the orgy. Wang Yu, a deputy secretary of the Youth League Committee of Hefei University in Anhui province, has reportedly admitted that he and his wife are two of the people photographed, China Daily reports. The couple has since been kicked out of the Communist Party and fired from their jobs.
