Child Pornography (SN) | The people arrested are suspected of massive consultation of sometimes “particularly violent” child pornography content.
Forty-eight people, suspected of having downloaded and viewed child pornography images and videos on a massive scale, were arrested in France, mostly on Tuesday November 15 and Wednesday November 16, franceinfo learned from a police source. Among them are local elected officials and people working in contact with young minors.
These people were arrested throughout mainland France, during an operation coordinated by the OCRVP (Central Office for the Suppression of Violence against Persons). They are currently in police custody. The police targeted people suspected of massive consultation of child pornography content, sometimes “particularly violent” content, according to the same source.
All the people interviewed are men, mainly in their forties. The youngest is 26 years old, the oldest is 79 years old. All social categories are concerned: elected officials, workers, executives, but also retirees. Some present a “collector” approach, that is to say that they keep hundreds, sometimes thousands, of child pornography content on their computer.
In addition to suspicions of consumption of child pornography, the goal for investigators during police custody is to find out whether some of these men were able to take action and could thus be targeted by prosecution for child crime.
Among these 48 people, two were arrested in Puy-de-Dôme, France Bleu Pays d’Auvergne reported on Tuesday. There’s a man in his sixties and another in his forties.
