Police in Frankfurt swooped on suspected pedophiles after busting a massive child pornography website on the ‘dark web’. The site had almost 90,000 users who swapped graphic images of children and arranged meetings to abuse them.
The forum, known as ‘Elysium,’ had existed on the internet’s darkside since the end of 2016.
Frankfurt public prosecutor’s and Germany’s BKA Federal Police said they arrested several people connected to the forum, including the sites suspected operator, a 39-year-old man living in Frankfurt.
The unidentified man was arrested on June 12 when police raided his apartment seizing the server used to host the site.
