MONTREAL – Four Quebecers are facing charges in connection with a notorious international child pornography investigation.
Provincial police say they made the arrests earlier today and the men are expected to appear in court later in the day.
Police had initially said five men were being sought; but they revised that number later in the day, without explaining why.
The charges stem from a massive investigation that originated in Amsterdam in 2010, with the arrest of a daycare worker in connection with an international child-porn ring.
Robert Mikelsons’ computers were analyzed by Dutch police and information on it allegedly led back to the Quebecers.
Quebec provincial police began investigating in this country, in December 2011.
Provincial and municipal police made arrests today and executed warrants in Montreal, Quebec City and Gatineau.
Four men, aged between 29 and 60, face charges of producing, possessing and distributing child pornography.
