One of the largest child sex abuse cases in history has just been busted wide open. A year-long special investigation called “Operation Darkroom” resulted in the seizure of 150 terabytes (150,000 gigabytes) of data in the forms of photos, movies and chat logs between members of various pedophile networks. All of them containing horrible atrocities against children as young as infancy.
51 perpetrators have been arrested so far, according to Norwegian police at a news conference in late November of this year. The list of the accused includes “highly educated” individuals, including two former or current elected Norwegian politicians, one teacher, a lawyer and a police officer according to NewNationalist.
Police stressed that the case involves a network. The investigation is ongoing, as it does have global implications- including the United States. Although, the U.S. media is busy with their denials, lies and cover ups involving Pizzagate and “fake news,”- meanwhile, this huge child sex abuse story is being taken care of and handled in Norway, as it should be here in the U.S.
“The material shows the abuse of children of all ages, including infants,” Hilde Reikrås, head of Operation Dark Room, said at the news conference.
Everyone who has been arrested so far have been men, and they all live in Norway, but police confirmed they were investigating one individual living abroad. It is considered one of the largest sexual abuse cases ever in the country.
The 51 facing charges can receive a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison, according to Neogaf.com.
The police would not reveal names of anyone involved for the sake of the investigation’s integrity. One of the politicians arrested has been fully cooperating with police, and has been since he was initially arrested, according to DeepDotWeb.
The investigation started in 2015, when a 22-year-old man was arrested for sexual abuse crimes. Police seized a significant amount of digital child-porn content from the suspect’s computers and subsequently discovered a network where he viewed and shared his content.
Police dug deeper into the network and realized the case was much larger than initially believed. That realization was when “Operation Darkroom” was established and a team was developed, which worked closely with The National Criminal Investigation Service.
Operation Darkroom’s case is still ongoing and many are likely to be arrested in Norway, as well as in other countries, depending on how the case is handled by relevant authorities.
