  • [01] Man charged over child porn, cybersex with minors

    A 40-year-old man was led before a public prosecutor on Tuesday and charged with obscene behaviour towards minors and disseminating child pornography over the Internet. This was the second time that the specific suspect has faced child porn charges.

    He was tracked down and arrested on Monday by the Athens electronic crimes squad, who were investigating a complaint by the mothers of two 11-year-old girls that an unknown individual had contacted their daughters through the Internet, claiming to be a 17-year-old girl, and had then encouraged them to commit sexually explicit acts and engage in cybersex, as well as sending them lewd photographs and videos via a web-camera.

    Police suspect the same individual also attempted something similar with another three 11-year-old girls.

    The electronic crimes squad requested that U.S.-based Microsoft find the culprit's electronic trace, which was done in record time for such cases and led to his swift arrest.

    In a raid on his home, police also found and confiscated six hard disks, two portable external hard disks, 391 CDs, and a large quantity of child pornography that included the photographs that he had sent to the two girls.

    The last were appended as evidence in a suit filed against him by the girls' parents.
