Most Wanted ‘Darknet’ Paedophile Suspect Nabbed By French Police



A 40year Old man suspected of operating paedophilia sites on secret “darknet” internet networks providing pornographic videos and pictures to thousands of people worldwide has been arrested by French police.

According to Prosecutor, he was arrested near the southwestern city of Bordeaux on July 7 after he admitted the charges against him. He has been described as “one of the 10 most-wanted targets” of authorities fighting child sex crimes around the globe.

According to Bordeaux prosecutor, Frederique Porterie, the suspect also appeared to have taken “an active role in the production of child pornography pictures and videos.”

After being taken in for questioning, he was also charged with the incestuous rape of a minor as well as incestuous sexual assault of a 15-year-old, Porterie said.

French police and investigators from its specialised anti-violence agency worked alongside the EU’s Europol police agency.

The suspect posted the images on the so-called “darknet” of websites that can be accessed only with specific software or authorisations, ensuring anonymity for users.
