WOW!! – “Investigators added that the months-long, German-instigated operation had been coordinated by Europol and supported by law enforcement in the Netherlands, Sweden, the United States and Canada.”
“German police said on Monday (May 3) that they had shut down “one of the biggest darknet child pornography platforms in the world” and arrested four of its members in a series of raids in mid-April.
The platform named Boystown had existed since 2019, counted over 400,000 members and was “set up for the worldwide exchange of child pornography”, federal police said in a statement.
The darknet forum allowed users to communicate with others and share graphic images and video content, which included “serious sexual abuse of toddlers”, the statement said.”
