On Friday, the Greek Police Cyber Crime Unit arrested a 31-year-old Greek male in the Attica region, Greece, on child pornography charges.
The Greek Public Order and Citizen Protection Ministry revealed that a review of the 31-year-old’s data found that he owned around 38,000 child pornography videos.
The Ministry said that the Cyber Crime Unit initially launched an investigation after child pornography content was found circulating on a Peer to Peer (P2P) online file sharing service. Subsequently, the 31-year-old’s communication confidentiality was lifted with the permission of a prosecutor.
“During the methodical digital investigation, specialized Cyber Crime Unit officers identified cyber traces of the 31-year-old, who, for months, had been using other people’s IP addresses, to which he had illegal access, to avoid being detected,” said a Ministry announcement.
