child porn bust

German authorities, in conjunction with Europol and law enforcement agencies in the Netherlands, Sweden, Australia, the United States and Canada, have announced a major bust of a child porn platform on the dark net with over 400,000 registered members. 

“Boystown,” as the platform is called, was used by pedophiles around the world, and could only be accessed through special software. The site is designed to allow pedophiles to view and upload images of child sexual abuse without being detected by law enforcement. 

Three administrators of the site and one major contributor of images to the site were charged in conjunction with raids conducted in mid-April after a months-long investigation. The administrators’ names were not revealed because of German privacy laws, but their ages are 40, 49 and 58 years old. As part of the services they offered, they helped users evade detection from law enforcement. One of the site’s administrators lives in Paraguay and law enforcement agencies are seeking to have him extradited to Germany for prosecution. From The Daily Citizen.
