Sixteen children have been rescued and 44 Australians charged after the Australian Federal Police smashed a paedophile ring.

Men aged 19 to 57 in every state and territory except the Northern Territory allegedly shared child sexual abuse material using a ‘a cloud storage’ company. They have been arrested by the Australian Federal Police on 350 charges.

Six children were removed from harm in Victoria, another six in South Australia, two in Queensland, one in New South Wales and one in the ACT.

Some men were allegedly abusing children themselves, filming it and sharing the videos online.

Others allegedly shared sickening videos that showed girls as young as 18 months old being raped and tortured.

The child abuse material was seized by police, including videos produced by Australian paedophile Peter Scully, who is currently serving life in the Philippines.

The AFP labelled Scully’s abuse material as ‘the most abhorrent produced’.

In Queensland, the 11 alleged offenders include a police officer, security guard, bicycle repair man, demolition contractor, tradesman, student, transport worker and the unemployed.

Victoria’s 11 alleged offenders include a forklift driver, hospitality manager, student, construction manager, truck driver, shelf-stacker and the unemployed.

A Tasmanian consultant and student were arrested, a school secretary and health and safety worker were charged in WA as well as a computer programmer in the ACT.

Operation Molto began late last year when the AFP were tipped off by a US intelligence agency about an international paedophile ring.

Thousands of men around the world shared child abuse material on a cloud-based storage system as part of the ring, some of which they produced themselves.

The Australian Centre to Counter Child Exploitation (ACCCE) has received 21,000 reports of child exploitation in the last last financial year, compared with 14,000 reports the previous year.

He was refused bail at Mt.Druitt Local Court on Thursday and is next due in court on December 16.

AFP Sergeant Joel Van Den Brun said demand for child abuse material is increasing.

‘If you access or trade these videos and images online, or pay to watch a livestream of children being abused in another country, you are complicit in the physical abuse of children,’ he said.

‘The AFP and our partners are committed to identifying anyone involved in the harm of children, whether they are in Australia or overseas, no matter their age or personal circumstances – police scrutiny is at an all-time high.

‘It’s only a matter of time before we come knocking on your door.’
