28 people arrested in Spain for child pornography
December 10, 2012
Officials say 28 people have been arrested in Spain on suspicion of
being linked to an international child pornography network operating in
Europe and Canada.
The investigation began when Interpol told Spanish police in
April about a network headquartered in Toronto, Canada, dedicated to the
sale of child pornography videos. Spain’s Interior Ministry said
Saturday that the videos were created by abusing minors in Ukraine,
Romania and Germany.
The recordings have been sold through three websites and
distributed in 94 countries, netting an estimated annual income of $1.6
million, the ministry says.
In addition to the 28 arrested in Spain, 10 other Spaniards have been charged with offenses, the ministry says.
