Man nabbed at airport with 900 Images & Videos of Child Porn


The Australian Border Force (ABF) has taken into custody a 27-year-old Malaysian man for reportedly arriving the country with 900 images and videos of child pornography.
Men of the Force attached to Melbourne International Airport stumbled upon the images while going through contents on his laptop and phone during routine search upon his arrival from Kuala Lumpur on 22 March, Daily Mail reports.
ABF Commander Investigations, Mark Antill, who stressed that protecting the community from harm was the primary goal of his department said: "Children are harmed by those who manufacture this abhorrent material, and people who consume child exploitation material provide the market that fuels this vile trade.
"Through the use of intelligence and targeting techniques our trained officers actively look for people bringing child exploitation material into Australia," he added.
The suspect has been charged with Importing Tier 2 goods (Child Exploitation Material), contrary to Section 233BAB (5) of the Customs Act 1901
He was arraigned last Friday at a Melbourne Magistrate's Court, where he was remanded until 29 June.
According to ABF Newsroom, the maximum penalty for a person importing or exporting child exploitation material is a A$180,000 fine, a 10-year jail sentence, or both.
