|Philippines - where child sex abuse on demand is thriving|
"They have been questioned and a number of computers, phones and tablets have been seized," Flemming Kjaerside of the Danish police's cyber-crime unit told AFP.
One of the men was remanded in custody in Herning in western Denmark while nine others had been released pending an investigation of the computers that had been confiscated, he added.
"Only when we have gone through all the computers can we confirm if our suspicions are correct," he said.
Danish police said in a statement that "a number of money transactions" had led to the arrests being made.
In the first Danish case of its kind, a man was last year sentenced to three and a half years in prison for his online involvement in the sexual abuse of children in the Philippines, having paid other adults between 150 and 300 kroner (S$30 and S$60) to carry out the acts.
The 43-year-old man who was convicted last December had used the internet to order the rape and other abuse of children as young as 12. The man came into contact with the children via women he met on a Filipino dating site. He then convinced the women to film the assaults on children.
That he was sentenced to 3.5 years for ordering and paying for the rape of children, is an abomination. 35 years would not be enough! Denmark needs to re-visit its sentencing policy for such perverts. In a couple years he will be out ordering the rape of more children. C'mon, wake up Denmark!
Now for some good news...
At the end of January 2015, the Dutch National Postcode Lottery donated almost € 4 million to Terre des Hommes to further continue the Sweetie project. Sweetie 2.0 will make potential perpetrators of webcam sex with children on the internet more easily traceable.
Sweetie 2.0 will be launched in about a year and is due to run three to four years.
