Massive child abuse ring smashed with 44 Australians arrested

More than 40 Australian men have been charged with possessing child abuse material and sharing their material online via a cloud storage platform.

Federal police on Friday said they’d filed 350 charges in total against 44 men in every Australian state and the ACT, with 16 children removed from harm’s way.

The cloud storage platform was allegedly used by thousands of sex offenders around the world, with some alleged Australian offenders also producing their own abuse material.

The AFP said its Australian Centre to Counter Child Exploitation has in the past 12 months intercepted more than 250,000 child abuse material files online, while 134 children – including 67 in Australia – were removed from harm in the 2019/20 financial year.
