An elderly Norwegian man has been arrested in Pattaya on charges of downloading, collecting, and possessing child pornography. The 87 year old expat was arrested yesterday in the Jomtien area, after authorities identified his computer IP address as being the source of illegal downloads of child sexual abuse material.

The Pattaya News reports that members of the Institute of Forensic Science accompanied arresting officers, along with representatives from the Norwegian Embassy. Officers seized a computer, external hard drive, a flash drive, 5 SD cards, and a mobile phone during the arrest. It’s alleged the confiscated items contain material that depicts the sexual abuse of children.

The unnamed suspect is in custody at Pattaya Police Station, facing a maximum jail term of 5 years and a fine of up to 100,000 baht, if convicted.

    Now, have to see if he’s abused any kids and if so, where? The extent might be to other countries.

    Obviously the guy has a thing or two to learn about using VPN’s, but in this case it’s good he didn’t know.

    Put him in jail and throw the keys.. if it’s possible to track down the abuse children, take his fortune and give to victims, and give them professional help for the trauma he has give them an he must pay for it, and so they have money/resources for future.. sexual predators should have death sentence, and special when it involves children, or young people..

      I say put him in the jail with the normal population and tell everyone what he is there for. He will learn what not to do in any country. The prison or jail people will give him his just treatment. The death penalty is to fast in most cases. They need to be shown what not to do. And the rest of the world needs to learn that will not be tolerated anywhere.

    Drop your kids away using your mom or newborn-sitter and share some intimate moments with each other.

    If, for some reason the removal is not successful, this can happen if the infection is a new variant
    of TDSS rootkit. ‘The Witcher” sex cards or romance cards are something that is a part of the original title’s game.

      This is serious,
      Drugs may kill a few. But this can kill the soul of human dignity. And will spread distrust and hatred. Send him to “Iran or Yeman” to punish.

      Oops, only one police man wear mask…

    For example, if you have a site devoted to video games that is likely to be
    visited by minors, you cannot, under any circumstances, display ads for porn. I know I am another generation so my opinions don’t mean much to young people.

    Jail this nasty old man. Refuse him the privilege of solitaire confinement so the other prisoners can welcome him and subsequently enforce castration,
