A predatory paedophile has had his monitoring restrictions tightened to account for developments in modern technology.
Donald McKenzie was branded a serious danger to young boys when he was banned from being alone in a room with any child for 25 years in 2009.
But social workers have gone back to court to seek further conditions in the Sexual Offences Prevention Order in place against the 54-year-old of Douglas Court, Perth.
He is now banned from having a computer, mobile phone or other internet capable device without telling a police officer involved in the management of his case.
McKenzie is also now banned from deleting his internet browser history or using evidence elimination software or device. He is also banned from downloading any software or service designed to prevent a log of web pages he has visited or conceal specific pages.
He is also obliged to give the police any internet passwords and let officers check any device he has used without them needing to seek a warrant to get access.
Sheriff Lindsay Foulis also granted a condition prohibiting McKenzie from being in the company of any child under 16 unless supervised by the child’s parent or guardian.
In 2009, McKenzie was made subject to one of the most restrictive SOPOs imposed in the UK, after it emerged he had spent years downloading child abuse images under the noses of social workers.
It was imposed by Sheriff Foulis who heard McKenzie began downloading the images shortly after being freed from prison. He also jailed the former project leader for 20 months.
