The man appears in around 200 photographs featuring abuse of 12 young boys, which investigators believe were taken in Vietnam and Cambodia, possibly in 2002 and 2003.
This is a guy that needs to get caught and put away for good!!!

Charles, it is good news that the image and activity of this paedophile have been identified by international investigators. I hope that some Care2 members in Europe or Asia can recognize and report this guy, but am not sure if there are enough Asians reading this Care2 website in English.

It sounds like they are on the right road to catching this freak. No will he be punished for this? Your guess is as good as mine!

I agree with Sophia. Find him, make him suffer, just like all those boys are having to do. Get rid of him. He is of no use to this life anyway.

I hope they lock him up for the rest of his life in isolation.

Noted. I have to agree that a worldwide search for this paedophile is warranted and he needs to be apprehended, and punished for these crimes against these innocent children. I pray he is caught soon and the victims of his torture can recover from this horrific abuse. My prayers for them.

Well said, Vicki. We are all repelled by this predator. And to violate these boys and post it on the internet--there is no redeeming this one. No chance at all. Swift detection and getting him off the street immediately. His photo, crimes and how to report him to Interpol so they can pick him up need to be posted so widely that it resembles confetti until we get him under wraps. Thank you, Charles, for the post.

Thanx Charles - undoubtedly - this apology for a human being needs to be locked up in isolation as Cate suggests - then they need to throw away the key - this will be a greater punishment than maiming him in anyway - absolute loss of freedom!!! Peace

I have zero tolerance for anyone who abuses children~~ ZERO... May he be caught, and shown NO mercy ~
Thanks to Charles for sharing, and to the computer whizzes who were able to decipher his image from none-
"The pictures had been digitally altered to disguise the man's face with a swirly pattern, but computer specialists at Germany's federal police agency, the BKA, worked with Interpol's human trafficking team to produce identifiable images."

I just hope they catch him.....you would think they could track the host or ISP and go from there. This guy belongs behind bars never to see another child again....that's the nice version of what I feel he deserves, the ugly version, I will keep to myself......I'm sure we all have great imaginations!!
Thanks all for the comments.......

Thank you again Charles. As you know I really hate this kind of crap. I was abused as a child. So when I see evil men like him, I want to beat the hell out of them. This guy is twisted.

I used to be a Correctional Officer and let me tell you all, the best "justice" this THING (I can't call it a man) could get it to be locked up in general population and it be let out what he is in there for - leave the rest up to the inmates that are already locked up; they will take care of him - look what they did to Jeffrey Dahmer.

I would like to suggest that all of us copy all of the pictures from the story and start passing it around our address books - if we can pass jokes/chain letters/etc. around the world 10 times over, surely to God we can get the word out about this monstrosity and get him off the streets.

LONDON (Reuters) - Interpol on Monday launched an unprecedented worldwide public appeal to track down a man shown sexually abusing children in images posted on the Internet.

The man appears in around 200 photographs featuring abuse of 12 young boys, which investigators believe were taken in Vietnam and Cambodia, possibly in 2002 and 2003.

The pictures had been digitally altered to disguise the man's face with a swirly pattern, but computer specialists at Germany's federal police agency, the BKA, worked with Interpol's human trafficking team to produce identifiable images.

The global police body said it was making the unique public appeal because, despite extensive efforts through its network of 186 member states, the man remained unknown.

"For years, images of this man sexually abusing children have been circulating on the Internet," Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble said.

"We have tried all other means to identify and to bring him to justice, but we are now convinced that without the public's help this sexual predator could continue to rape and sexually abuse young children whose ages appear to range from six to early teens."

Photographs of the man are available on Interpol's Web site, www.interpol.int and anyone with information on him is urged to contact their local police or Interpol's human trafficking unit.

Anders Persson, a Swedish police officer seconded to the unit, told Reuters the dark-haired man in the photos was thought to be a European aged around 35-40.

He said a child abuser seeking contact with like-minded individuals on the Internet would sometimes post pictures of himself in the act of abuse as a kind of "ID card" to prove he is a genuine hard-core paedophile.

The inquiry began when the first pictures of the man were found by German police in 2004. A link to a Vietnamese hotel emerged from advertising material seen on a bedside table in some of the pictures, Persson said. But checks against passport photos of people on the hotel's guest list drew a blank.

Other photos were taken at outdoor locations in Cambodia that were recognised by police there.

Interpol runs a huge database of images of child sex abuse and uses sophisticated software to find connections between them, even analysing tiny details like wallpaper and fabric patterns in apparently anonymous indoor settings.

Now containing more than 520,000 images submitted by 36 member states, the database has helped police identify and rescue nearly 600 victims from 31 countries to date.

What I will never understand is why they keep releasing child abusers back into the public so they can abuse again. People such as this cannot or will not change their ways, they are not rehabilitated so keep them locked up, put them all in a place where they can abuse each other, just so the children are safe. Child abuse is something children never forget or get over, it remains with them the rest of their life but the abuser should not.

Catch him and put him in general population and for some reason, the other inmates will take care of him. I don't know what it is about child abusers and prison inmates but they seem to infuriate them. He needs to be taken out of circulation forever. He is truely mean and insane.
