CHILD PORN RING SMASHED

The Guardia Civil arrested 51 people and charged a further 20 last Friday in 27 provinces across the country in a swoop against child pornography and the corruption of minors on the internet. Eight people were arrested in Madrid, eight more in Barcelona, six in Valencia, four in Alicante, three in Tarragona and Malaga and two in Baleares, Granada, Guipúzcoa and Sevilla. The operation, codenamed Fabiola, began last March when a woman in Cordoba accidentally entered a website displaying pornographic photos of small children and babies and reported it to the authorities. About 200 Guardia Civil took part in simultaneous searches in 73 homes across the country, seizing several computers, drives, hard discs, DVD’s and CD’s removed. The total number of images recovered in the operation is thought to be more than a million.
