Father of 4 in child porn link

Police in Ioannina were yesterday investigating whether a 43-year-old man arrested in the city had abused young boys after arresting him for peddling indecent photographs of children which he had taken himself. The suspect, who is married and has four children, was arrested after the father of an underage boy filed a complaint with the police. Officers raided the 43-year-old’s home and store and, according to police, found him arranging over the Internet a meeting with a young boy in the center of Ioannina. The unnamed man is thought to have arranged several such meetings with boys from the area after a number of nude photographs were found on his mobile phone. Officers also found e-mail correspondence between the suspect and underage boys. Police confiscated three computer hard disks which they will examine to establish whether the man had been exchanging pornographic material with pedophiles in Greece and abroad.
