Total of 50 children are being rescued from international pedophile network


IllustrationIllustration - A total of 50 children were rescued and nine were arrested following an Interpol investigation into an international pedophile network. Arrests were carried out in Thailand, Australia and the United States, according to Interpol.

The investigation with the name Operation Blackwrist began in 2017 and is focused on a hidden "dark web" site with 63,000 users worldwide. Police believe that more than 100 other children suffered torture and their whereabouts are being identified.

Blackwrist's operation started by Interpol after they detected a number of photos showing 11 boys under the age of 13 being tortured on the site where the visitors on the site used encrypted software to maintain their identity confidentiality.

Dark internet network aka dark net is an internet service area that is far from the reach of mainstream search engines. The US Department of Homeland Security Investigation (HSI) tracks the IP address of the website that holds photos and videos of torture.

Some of the first arrests took place last year, where the site's main manager, Montri Salangam, was detained in Thailand, while another site manager, Ruecha Tokputza, was arrested in Australia. Salangam, who persecuted one of his nephews, is sentenced to 146 years in prison in Thailand, while his accomplice, a pre-school teacher, is sentenced to 36 years in prison.
