Man suspected of possessing child porn is arrested

Police on Thursday arrested a 63-year-old man in connection with the possession and distribution of child pornography.

The suspect, a resident of Larnaca, is on Friday expected to appear before a court where police will ask that he be remanded in custody.

Police said they had received a tip from Europol concerning a user on a social media platform who had sent, through his account, to another user a video depicting sexual acts being performed on a minor.

Police here were then able to track down the suspect and secured an arrest warrant.

During the arrest at the suspect’s house, officers found on his person a mobile phone, which they confiscated and will examine forensically.

A computer belonging to the suspect was also seized.
