⚡️ 43 New Zealander’s arrested, six children rescued as part of global sex abuse investigation
A global paedophile ring has been uncovered by a New Zealand-led investigation, resulting in 146 children around the world being saved from potential harm.
Known as Operation H, the investigation is the largest of its kind. It uncovered 90,000 account holders sharing more than 1000 images and videos of children being sexually abused.
The operation has contributed to 836 individual investigations in 130 countries, from Azerbaijan to Vanuatu.
So far, 43 New Zealanders have been arrested and charged in connection with the investigation. Some of those cases are still progressing through the courts.
