Arrest after child porn distributed on social media

Police on Thursday arrested a 40-year-old man in connection with a case of child pornography in the Famagusta district.

He was detained after the electronic crime prevention unit was informed by Europol that an account holder on a social media site was distributing child porn from his home.

During investigations conducted in the afternoon a mobile phone was seized.

Just two days earlier, another man, 46, was sentenced to 12 months in prison for a similar offence.
