Dutch press for prison in child-porn case

DUTCH prosecutors have demanded a prison sentence of more than two years for a 66-year-old man accused of producing child pornography in Cambodia and collecting pornographic images, the Dutch news agency BNO News reported on Friday. The suspect was arrested at an Amsterdam airport after returning from Bangkok in February last year with a suitcase containing child pornography, BNO reported. He is accused of producing six pornographic images in Cambodia – where he travelled frequently – featuring a boy aged between 14 and 16. Dutch police found thousands of pornographic images in the man’s home. Prosecutors have requested a sentence of 38 months – of which eight are conditional – and a probation period of 10 years.
