Thailand: Pedophile charged with child Abuse, Indecent Photography
Thai police have on Tuesday arrested the head of a child modelling agency after more than 500,000 indecent images of children were found on computer hard drives.
The 23-year-old has been charged with child sexual abuse and downloading child abuse images.
According to the details, investigators say the images were found in a raid on the Nene Modelling Agency, north of the capital Bangkok.
The raid was the culmination of a months-long operation that began with a tip-off from Australian police.
The FBI and New Zealand police were also involved in the investigation, officials said.
Thailand’s Department of Special Investigation (DSI) said the victims included Thai children and also thousands of others from various countries.
Moreover, a portfolio found by police during the raid claimed the agency had worked with more than 8,400 child models and actors since 2013.
