Two members of a network of pornography, that in addition to displaying images of minors on the Internet, blackmailed their victims, were captured by the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) and the Federal Police (PF).

Angela Quiroga, of the Special Prosecutor for Crimes of Violence against Women and Human Trafficking (FEVIMTRA) of the PGR, said that the individuals operated in the states of Campeche, Yucatan and Quintana Roo.

The detainees, identified as David Azael Basto Camal, or Silverio Tomas Guardado Gomez, and Bryan Slater Gonzalez Batún, are accused of crimes of human trafficking in child pornography mode, and child pornography in the transmission mode.

In a press conference, Quiroga said that this network accumulated 106 victims whose intimate photographs and videos as well as personal data, phone numbers, addresses and even school names were published on the website www.yucatercos.org.

“The result was that victims are violated in their human rights, subject to public scorn and social pressure and also putting their personal safety at risk,” she said.

“The participation of young teenagers seeking pictures or videos of that nature to age 18, and later upload them to the aforementioned website and demand money in exchange for eliminating them, which are cautioned did not happen.”

The modus operandi of the gang was to collect pornographic material, upload it to the website, created in 2014 and partially disabled, and request money from women victims, or their parents, supposedly to remove the photos and videos.

Quiroga said that the detainees made this illegal activity their main source of income, since, according to reports provided by the National Banking and Securities Commission, the cards that were secured from them showed they received deposits of around 100 thousand pesos each for 2015.

“It is urgent to call on citizens to protect the most vulnerable, informing and educating on proper use of the Internet, and specifically social networks, particularly among children and adolescents,” said the official.
