Massive European Online Child Abuse Network Exposed
25 August 2016
The investigation uncovered how well-known online apps such as Skype and chat and live stream sites allowed the selling of child pornography.
A major operation by the European Police Office into an online network sexually exploiting children has led to the arrests of 75 people and 207 criminal cases across Europe, Europol officials said Tuesday.
“Operation Daylight” was first launched in 2015 after Europol received “intelligence packages” from police in Switzerland about network of online child abuse images.
The investigation uncovered how well-known online apps such as Skype and chat and live stream sites allowed the selling of child pornography. Offenders often used sophisticated encryption methods to hide their activities on the so called “darknet,” a notorious online network where illegal activities commonly take place.
Online currencies such as BitCoin were often used as payment for activities related to online child sexual abuse….
Seventy-five arrests were made in 28 European countries with a number of the suspects already being prosecuted in ongoing investigations. Italian police also revealed that the investigation had led them to the arrests of five people and 16 people being reported to the magistrate….
Bachelor star: ‘Kiwi dad was cult leader’
Tuesday, 09 August 2016
Australian Bachelor star Keira Maguire has opened up about her upbringing in a polygamist cult, revealing her biological father, a former police officer from New Zealand, had nine wives and 64 children.
Self-styled spiritual guru Alistah Laishkochav, who told his followers he was Jesus Christ, was the head of a polygamous cult, dailymail.com reported.
Laishkochav, who was born in Auckland, changed his name from Ian Lowe when he moved to Australia from New Zealand in 1969.
At 25, he married his first wife in a Mormon Church, where he was introduced to the concept of polygamy.
The polygamist drew his beliefs from sections of the Jewish, Muslim and Mormon religions.
The former policeman exerted his strict control over the group – of which Keira was a member until the age of 5 – from his Bells Beach compound in Victoria, Australia.
In 2000 he was found guilty of sexually penetrating a child under 10 as well as three counts of attempted penetration of a child and 16 counts of indecent assault.
Laishkochav, who was described by his harem of wives as “the controller”, was sentenced to seven years and six months in jail. He reportedly died years later.
His offences involved four girls aged between seven and 11 and occurred between 1987 and 1991, according to reports.
Maguire would have only been 3 years old at the time.
During his trial, one of the victims told the court she was aged between 7 and 9 when Laishkochav molested her “every other day”.
She also revealed how Laishkochav would threaten her with violence to ensure she stayed silent about the sexual abuse….
Ritual abuse exists all over the world. There have been reports, journal articles, web pages and criminal convictions of crimes against children and adults.

Europol uncover major online child abuse network
Operation results in 207 criminal cases against suspected web distributors of child sexual abuse images in 28 countries.
A major operation against distributors of child sexual abuse images online has resulted in the arrests of 75 suspects across 28 European countries.
Code-named “Operation Daylight”, the investigation has resulted in 207 criminal cases, Europe’s policing agency Europol said on Tuesday.
“We know that individuals are abusing online platforms and networks to distribute child sexual abuse material and we are determined to target them and bring them to justice,” Steven Wilson, head of Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre, said in a statement.
Operation Daylight was launched last year after Swiss police notified Europol after uncovering a vast network of criminals involved in the sexual exploitation of minors online….
“The operation has uncovered a vast paedophile network,” the Italian police statement said, adding that access to the online network where images were shared was “rigidly” regulated and required patient work to be infiltrated by police.
“Those networks continue to be a primary source for persons with a sexual interest in children who are seeking child sexual abuse and exploitation material online,” Europol said in the statement.
Jones man arrested on child abuse charges
By Adam Kemp August 23, 2016
JONES — A Jones man has been arrested on accusations the Oklahoma County sheriff described as crimes of “horrific proportions.”
Donald McCord, 49, was arrested on 31 complaints of sexual abuse of a child and first degree rape of a child.
The sheriff’s office began investigating on Aug. 3 after a woman contacted Jones police to tell them she had knowledge of sexual abuse by McCord.
During the course of their investigation, deputies learned that for nearly 10 years McCord had sexually abused two girls, Oklahoma County Sherriff John Whetsel said during a Tuesday press conference.
The victims told investigators they had been sexually and physically abused by McCord almost daily since at least 2007. They said McCord would choke them to the point of unconsciousness and threatened to kill them if they told anybody.
When confronted with the allegations, McCord denied them at first before admitting to authorities he did “inappropriate things” with the victims, Whetsel said….
