Officers from the Cyber Crime Investigation Bureau arrested a Thai man in the southern province of Prachub KirKhan for possessing and selling spycam pornography and found 60,000 files of pornography in his possession.

The Internet Crimes Against Children Unit of the High-tech Crime Division received a complaint about the Twitter account KingSpy ราชาแอบถ่าย. The account invited Twitter users to join a group on the LINE application under the same name and pay the 150 baht membership fee to access the spycam porn.

The LINE account had nearly 600 members and several pornographic videos recorded with hidden cameras were shared in the group. Some of the victims in the videos were children.

The administrator of the group was identified as a 26 year old Thai man named Nattaporn, who was arrested at his home in Prachub Kiri Khan province on December 12. He confessed to selling the spycam pornography, but it was not reported whether he had recorded the explicit videos himself.

His phone was also logged into an application called MEGA Cloud, and 62,773 files of spycam porn, or about 1.4 terabytes, were found to be stored in the cloud. Each file was categorised by location, such as on a train, in a market, in a school toilet, in a shopping centre toilet, etc.
