British paedophile arrested in Spain

Guardia Civil
Officers review the evidence

THE Guardia Civil has arrested two paedophiles, one from Wales, who were distributing child pornography.

As part of an international investigation which has seen dozens of people in different countries arrested, officers discovered that a Briton and a Spaniard were running a website which was streaming child pornography to more than 1,000 people.

One of the two men detained in Spain is a British national who had been on a wanted list since 2006 and according to INTERPOL, was one of the most wanted sex offenders in Wales.


Tracking him down was particularly difficult as he was not registered in Spain nor had any fixed abode and was discovered to have used public wireless networks to transmit the feeds created by the two men.

The Spanish half of the duo is said to have been responsible for installing a hidden camera in the changing room of a local sports centre used by minors and for allowing subscribers to view live feeds.

Both men were placed in custody without bail as soon as they were arrested and if found guilty of the alleged offence of child pornography could face nine years in jail.
