- Interpol has saved fifty children from an international pedophile ring
- Police said they suspect an addition of 100 unidentified children has been abused
- & # 39; Operation Blackwrist & # 39; saw the arrest of pedophiles including Ruecha Tokputza
An international police operation rescued 50 children from a child sex ring that included Australia's worst pedophile, Ruecha Tokputza.
The two-year operation consisted of researchers from Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, the United States and Bulgaria was launched after images were discovered on the dark web of children who were abused.
Images and images uploaded weekly to an online community based on a subscription with nearly 63,000 members showed that 11 boys under the age of 13 were abused.

& # 39; Operation Blackwrist & # 39; named after a bracelet worn by one of the offenders, tried to track down the children who were often masked by pedophiles who made every effort to hide information that could lead to their identity .
Despite the rescue of the 50 children, Interpol believes that another 100 children have been mistreated by the organization and are trying to identify themselves.
The first arrests took place in November 2017 after researchers had been able to identify the children through their physical characteristics, which led to a series of arrests two months later.
Montri Salangam, based in Thailand, was the main administrator of the website that allegedly abused the eleven boys including his own cousin in part of the footage.
The first arrests took place in November 2017 after researchers were able to identify the children based on their physical characteristics, which led to a series of arrests two months later.
Thai courts sentenced Salangam to 146 years in prison in June 2018 for charges such as child rape, human trafficking, possession and distribution of material for child sexual abuse.
Another man, who worked as a kindergarten teacher, also got 36 years in prison for the same indictment.
The second caretaker was Ruecha Tokputza, who abused at least 13 children, only a few months old.
Tokputza was also arrested in Adelaide with 251 porn videos and 415 videos found on his phone, some of which showed him the children.
He was sentenced in May 2019 to 40 years and three months in prison in the longest ever charged for child abuse offenses in Australia and the judge called him & # 39; the worst nightmare of any parent & # 39 ;.
One of the police officers working to bring down Tokputza, Detective License Sergeant Stephen Hegarty, said he was cold and emotionless during the trial
& # 39; He is a pure sociopath in my opinion. Offenders will usually "give" something, even if it's false, but he doesn't even try, "he told the advertiser.
& # 39; There is no emotion from him, and that has never changed in any of my dealings with him, from the first day to the last day in the courtroom. & # 39;

Tokputza pleads guilty to 51 charges against 13 babies and boys for more than six years.
He took care of Australian and Thai children for sex, filmed their abuse and shared it online.
The crimes committed by Tokputza were so outrageous that there was no precedent and prosecutor Barklay said his actions were more serious than those of the infamous Families SA pedophile Shannon McCoole.
& # 39; Operation Blackwrist sends a clear message to those who abuse children, produce material for sexual exploitation of children and share the images online: we see you and you will be brought to justice & # 39 ;, said Interpol Secretary General Jürgen Stock.
& # 39; Every image of child abuse is evidence of a crime and Interpol will always provide its full support to local officers to help identify and rescue victims around the world, & # 39; he said.
