Police officer remanded in child porn case (Update)

A 30-year-old police officer was remanded for six days on Monday on suspicion of possessing child pornography.

The officer, a member of the rapid response unit MMAD, was arrested in Nicosia on Sunday.

He was arrested after a complaint was made to police by a 17-year-old girl who had encountered him on a social networking site. Posing as a female, the suspect had allegedly asked her to send nude photos of herself, which she had done. When the fake persona asked for more photos, the girl refused, and the suspect then posted the previous photos he had of her on the internet.

Police established the account was fake and investigations led them to the 30-year-old.

On Sunday, they said they seized his computer, tablet, and external hard drive and four USBs from the suspect’s home.

The Anti Cyber ​​Crime Office is investigating the case.
