Launched just over a week ago, Europol’s public appeal as part of the campaign ‘Stop Child Abuse’ was a resounding success: over 10 000 contributions were received from the general public via the dedicated webpage.
Europol’s analysts have since been working round the clock to process the information and follow-up with the competent national authorities any interesting leads. Europol is confident that some of this information will lead to the safeguarding of victims, and will communicate in due time on such instances.
Given the success of this initial appeal, Europol has released today a further 10 new pictures for which every other investigative avenue has already been examined. The general public is invited to go on the dedicated Stop Child Abuse webpage and try and identify the objects posted online.
