Child porn suspect remanded in Cyprus

A 26-YEAR-OLD student extradited to Cyprus from the UK in connection with child porn charges was remanded for eight days in Nicosia on Friday.

Nicosia District Court heard among other charges that more than 300,000 pornographic images of women were found on the suspect's computer.

The 26-year-old faces charges of distributing images of child pornography, possessing child illegal pornographic material, inviting a minor to participate in child pornography and illegal access to a young girl's personal computer images.

The police are now investigating whether the suspect possesses images of the three young girls who filed the initial complaint to the police.

One of the girls claimed the suspect had illegally hacked into her computer and forced her to do a striptease in front of her web cam. He is then said to have blackmailed her into carrying out various sex acts.
