Austrian pensioner arrested for child porn in Chiang Mai

The Thai immigration bureau have announced the arrest of a 66 year old Austrian national for downloading and possessing indecent images of children.
The Thailand Internet Crime Against Children (TICAC) division were informed in September that someone was using the Dark Web to access child porn.
The Thais discovered that this was a person living in the Pa Daet sub-district of Muang district Chiang Mai and obtained an arrest warrant.
On November 9th the warrant was served. Pictures published on the IB website showed officers looking at a computer at the home of the unnamed suspect.
His computer and hard drive were found to contain a lot of pornographic images of children.
He was not named but faces 5 years in jail and a 100,000 baht fine. If it can be proved that he shared the images the jail term goes up to 7 years and 140,000 baht.
A Thai woman whose name was on internet usage papers was also pictured on a board next to the Austrian.
The Austrian is now in the custody of the Muang Chiang Mai police.
Immigration chief Maj-Gen Surachate “Big Joke” Hakparn was pictured on the IB site on a board related to the crime but not mentioned as having played a role in the arrests on this occasion.
Thaivisa notes that it was unusual in such cases for the suspect’s name to be withheld.
