A three-year investigation into an exploitative Toronto-based film company has netted nearly 350 arrests and rescued more than 380 children from sexual abuse, police said Thursday.
Law enforcement from all over the world, primarily in Eastern Europe and the United States, worked with Toronto police since 2010 to arrest those who produced child pornography and those who purchased it.
Hundreds of children, some as young as five, have been rescued from this child pornography ring across the globe. CNN's Nic Robertson reports.
Becky talks to Troels Oerting, the head of the European Cybercrime Centre, about the process of tracking down and deterring online paedophiles.
The NGO has recently attracted attention by developing the “Sweetie” avatar, a virtual girl used to effectively entrap cyber criminals. The avatar has received several thousand hits already.
Oerting reiterates caution given potential legal problems in the future.
She calls herself 'Sweetie' and this young girl can speak to hundreds of men from across the world every day.
But 'Sweetie' isn't the young girl that she seems, she is in fact a computer avatar that was being used to track down pedophiles who prey on young children around the globe.
