Arrest for possession and distribution of child pornography (update)

 

Authorities have arrested a 35 year old in connection with possession, access and distribution of child pornography.

The man who is illegally residing in Cyprus, was flagged by Europol which briefed local police than a social media platform user had sent three videos of child sexual abuse to a user of the same platform.

He was spotted at Larnaca airport yesterday as he was getting ready to leave and was arrested following a court order.

Officers confiscated two mobile phones, a smartwatch and a lap top that are going through forensics.

Early this afternoon he was remanded in custody for five days by the district court in Nicosia.

The Electronic Crime Unit is investigating.
