Man held for sexual exploitation of children and child porn 1

A 28-year-old man is under arrest for obtaining naked photos and videos of minors while pretending to be a woman, police said.

They said that the man was arrested on Wednesday as part of police inquiries into the sexual exploitation of children, acquiring/possession and access to child pornography and online impersonation.

His arrest followed a complaint submitted by a minor that the 28-year-old had used a fake profile on social media, pretending to be a woman, to secure photos and videos of the youngster naked.

Police searched his house and took away for forensic tests a laptop, two mobile telephones, and a memory card.

During questioning, the 28-year-old admitted to the offense and said that he had acquired photos and videos in the same way from four other minors, the police announcement said.

The cyber crime unit is investigating.

On Thursday a police spokesman said the man had approached five teen boys aged under 18 in this way.

He would not give further details but said the boys were around 16.

The suspect was remanded in custody for eight days by Nicosia district court on Thursday.
