The Greek Police electronic crime unit announced on Sunday the cracking of an internet pornography case with a 17-year-old girl as the victim, saying it had drawn up charges relating to the dissemination of child pornography on the internet.
The investigation was launched after the victim’s mother reported that her daughter had been talking to an unknown person on social media and at some point sent him lewd photographs. The girl then received a message from another account threatening to share the photographs with others unless she sent two more. When she refused, the other user sent the photographs to the victim’s network of friends, while also asked other minors for similar material. In one case, he also offered one girl money to sleep with him.
Investigation of the user’s electronic trace led police to the residence of a 17-year-old boy in the Attica region, where police confirmed that he was the owner of both social media accounts and had held but erased the girl’s photographs from his computer.
The case has now been forwarded to the prosecutor.
