Freedom Hosting II
We are aware of the material derived from the Freedom Hosting II hack and have received information yesterday from The Times. Enquiries are live so we cannot comment further.
Sites or forums that purport to contain indecent images of children will be investigated if reported to law enforcement. We work closely with international partners to ensure information or intelligence relating to child abuse images is shared to identify and hold to account those involved.
The recent international investigation highlighted by the FBI - which led to a number of arrests across the world including within the UK - should act as a deterrent to anyone who thinks they can use hidden networks to access child abuse images. Working together to protect children from harm, we will identify and locate those who believe they remain anonymous and ensure they are prosecuted.
