OFFICERS of the national police arrested a suspected pedophile in the Alicante city of Benidorm who had managed to access the domestic surveillance cameras of more than 70 families from different countries of the world and obtained more than 1,000 recordings of naked children, including two in Spain. The inmate volunteered as a home babysitter and worked as a private English teacher.
As reported by Information about Andalusia, the arrested man sexually harassed at least 11 minors who accessed video chats, which he recorded naked and, on occasion, threatened. The man was very active in hidden Internet networks and had organized a system to sell child pornography in exchange for bitcoins or images of abuse recorded by his clients, as reported by the national police in a statement.
Investigations began when officers from Task Force Argos, Queensland State Police, Australia, a department specializing in the prosecution of this type of crime, found sexual images of what they suspected to be a child from the Pacific region, although their analysis suggested that they had been modified and uploaded from Spain . As a result, the National Police have started a process of working with Australian officers to try to identify and arrest the person responsible.
Tracking the user who uploaded such content revealed that they were using different names on a variety of hidden pedophile forums. Thanks to the analysis and intelligence work to follow the author’s movements and the study of his comments on the dark web, the police were able to identify him. It was about an individual who had already been arrested when he was a minor for similar acts.
