A 31-year-old Greek man has been arrested by the Athens police computer crime department for distributing child pornography using the Internet. The arrest was announced on Sunday.
The suspect was tracked down through his digital trace and the public prosecutor's office was informed so that a raid might be carried out on his house, where he was arrested.

Police said that the suspect used various aliases on the Internet in order to mislead prosecuting authorities and be able to distribute hard-core child porn, while he also downloaded and exchanged such material with other users.

During the raid, police confiscated four hard disks and a USB memory stick, which are now being examined by the forensics service.

The suspect has been led before a public prosecutor.
