A major international child abuse ring has been dismantled by police who controversially “captured” and operated for several months online sites which shared images of children being abused. Police and other law enforcement agencies actively ran the child abuse sites, believed to be the world’s two largest, in an effort to identify the abusers who hid their true identities on the Tor network.


Hundreds of arrests took place worldwide following the operation. One of the first Britons arrested pleaded guilty at Blackfriars Crown Court, south London, and was jailed in January. Vithusan Puvaneswaran, 21, used the encrypted Tor software to access anonymously one US site and build up a massive collection of photos and videos. National Crime Agency officers found “sickening images of children in cots” and other abuse material when they raided his home in west London last year.
