Australian Police Expose Global Child Sex Abuse Ring


Australian police said Wednesday they had uncovered a major child abuse ring with links to Europe, Asia and the United States.

Seventeen men, including a childcare worker and a children’s soccer coach, were arrested as part of a monthslong investigation, Australian Federal Police Assistant Commissioner Justine Gough said.

They’ve been charged with a total of 828 offenses, including sexually abusing children and producing and sharing child abuse material.

“No child should be subjected to abuse and violence from the people they trust, whether that is a family member, a childcare worker or a soccer coach,” Gough said.
