No Kiwi Arrest for International Child Porn Ring

How is it that two young New Zealand children were caught up in an international child porn ring and there have been no arrests in New Zealand?

New Zealand police confirmed the two boys, aged 12 and 13, were among the victims of the members-only online network which had more than 27,000 subscribers.

Fourteen men had been arrested in the United States, but there had been no arrests here, a New Zealand police spokesman said.

No one in New Zealand would face charges over the child porn ring, which had links to victims in Australia, Britain, Canada and Belgium.

“The New Zealand Police received information from United States authorities that New Zealand children had been victimised by a US based online child exploitation group,” Detective Senior Sergeant John Michael said.

 “During our investigation police identified two young male victims in New Zealand, aged 12 and 13, that had been exploited and were able to take steps to ensure their safety,” he said in a statement…” source NZ Herald

An international operation has busted 14 perverts in the US but NZ police say no one in New Zealand will be facing charges.

No explanation for that has been made.

What gives NZ?

The FBI officers involved in the international operation must be sitting back and scratching their heads, wondering if their effort was worth it. The court’s decision may give the impression that New Zealand is a pretty safe haven for paedophiles, especially those who can afford a good lawyer.

  1. Did you consider they were exploited online by overseas offenders, not by New Zealand offenders. That was what happened. Does that answer your question?

  2. I cannot help but remember an interesting conversation I had with a criminology student who was preparing to enter the New Zealand police force. He told me about a 14 year old girl who was raped by an older man. The punishment they gave the man was home detention, which in itself was pretty light. But, there was a problem: the man’s house was located on the only route the girl could take to get to school. In other words, the ‘justice’ system forced the girl to walk past her rapist’s home every day, and ‘punished’ the man by allowing him to stare at her every school day as she passed by on her way to school.

    Apparently this sort of thing is happening all the time in New Zealand.

    • In “advanced” New Zealand, the rights of the criminal are more important than those of the victim. The culture blames the victims and anyone with a moral conscience that speaks out on behalf of victims.

  3. I think we all know that New Zealand (in)justice system shows far more solicitude for the perpetrators of crime than it does for its victims.

    Here is a blog post showing another case where the judge and ex-Solicitor General conspired to suppress the identity of a man that had forced an underage girl to perform a sex act on him. I notice that someone has mysteriously removed the Stuff articles from the web.
