Newsroom

Police have arrested a man on child porn charges, following a search of his mobile phone where investigators found illegal content.

According to police, a 46-year-old man was arrested in Ayia Napa on Sunday early morning, around 1:45am.

Police told Knews it was too early to ascertain whether files were created on the man's device or downloaded from the internet

Police told Knews the arrest did not involve any other suspects, adding that it was too soon to ascertain whether archived files of child porn were created on his device or obtained from the internet.

An official report said the arrest took place following information obtained by law enforcement which led to the suspect and a search of his phone. A number of files depicting child porn were reportedly found, while investigators are carrying out further tests.

Earlier this year, the Supreme Court set a new precedent for longer sentences in child pornography cases, following revelations that the problem was getting bigger and some content in materials seized by police was shockingly abhorrent.
