Child pornography, three arrests and 26 under investigation throughout Italy: “They exchanged gruesome images on a pay channel”

There was not alone Nicola De Blasio, director of the diocesan Caritas of Benevento, in the network of Italian users who exchanged child pornography material on a well-known messaging platform. The Postal Police of Turin has carried out 26 searches throughout Italy as part of the “meet up” operation, held responsible for detention e diffusion of material created through the exploitation of minors, seizing thousands of files defined as “gruesome” by the investigators, which in some cases portrayed real sexual violence against young children. In addition to the priest, they have been under house arrest since November 3 last year arrested two other subjects: a 37 year old IT technician in Piedmont and the creator of the pay channel, a boy at the time of the facts underage, residing in Puglia.

The Turin agents conducted aundercover investigation aimed at contrasting the dissemination of child pornography material: since last February they had activated a monitoring on some open channels, mostly frequented by Italian users. It was necessary – explains the post office – “a long preparatory work, consisting in the search for relationship of trust with the interlocutors who from time to time showed themselves interested in the exchange of material, with a considerable mental effort of operators in assuming the same roles as their targets. Once the elements useful for the continuation of the investigation were obtained, they were put in common computer traces left online by internet users, who have allowed their identification “.

The activity, directed by Prosecutor of Turin and coordinated by the National Center for the fight against online child pornography of the Postal Police, concerned throughout the national territory. “Particularly interesting – the police still write – was the presence of a closed environment, advertised by its promoter, in which child pornography material was disclosed upon payment of a sum of money which enabled subscription to the channel, which was also the subject of investigations during the investigation “. The elements gathered in the course of the undercover activity led to the issue of the search orders, issued by the Organized crime group e computer crimes of the Prosecutor’s Office.
