The biggest circle of pedophiles, unmasked


International police, led by a UK team, have said they have closed the largest circle of pedophiles discovered so far, the BBC announced.

The operation identified 670 suspects and 230 abused children.

Detectives said 184 people were arrested, 121 of whom were from the UK. 60 children have come under the protection of the UK authorities.

This is a global forum, which had 70,000 members. The online forum (boylover.net) was a private one and encouraged sexual relations between adults and minors. Forum members used secret forum systems to share videos and pictures of sexually abused children.

The investigators infiltrated this system, under the guise of pedophiles and thus gathered information about the people who were at the highest risk of committing aggression against minors. The activity generated 4000 information reports, sent to authorities in 30 countries, including Romania.

The website was opened by a server in the Netherlands, but suspects were also identified in countries such as Australia, Belgium, Canada, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Holland, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, Spain, United Kingdom and the United States. of America.

The operation extended over a period of three years and was carried out by the Center for Combating Child Exploitation and Online Protection in the United Kingdom (CEOP).
