20 women arrested on child porn charges
Swedish police arrested a total of 23 people all over the country on Wednesday for their suspected involvement of child pornography crimes. Twenty of them are women.
“It is extremely rare for female perpetrators to be arrested when it comes to child pornography,” Björn Sellström, at the National Criminal Investigation Department, told Swedish Radio news.
It was after police arrested a 42-year-old man in Borlänge, central Sweden, one month ago that they found information about the 23 people who have now been detained.
One woman hosted a website where users could share child porn with each other but police said they are not certain how the 23 came in contact with each other.
