Children abused in sick online shows

Young children are being ­violently abused in a sickening new trade in online torture “shows”.
Victoria Police has revealed it is monitoring the depraved internet abuse, which sees ­toddlers horrifically sexually ­assaulted and burnt live on webcams.
Taskforce Astraea — a specialist unit which investigates and prosecutes internet child sex offenders — said ­paedophiles were using the virtual currency, Bitcoin, to pay for the abhorrent livestream footage.
Bitcoin, a “crypto-­currency”, is extremely hard to trace by law enforcement authorities because users are not identified by name and a different email address can be used for each transaction.
Additionally, software programs exist to allow users to pay for services with a fake transaction history.
Victoria Police said it had not re?ceived any reports of ­offending happening in the state but was monitoring the situation.
“Taskforce Astraea is aware of people paying with Bitcoins to watch livestream footage of children being abused in foreign countries,” said detective Senior Sergeant Wayne Newman, who heads the taskforce.
“Taskforce Astraea will continue to proactively target people using the internet to access child exploitation ­material and/or those involved in grooming or procuring children via the internet for sexual purposes.
“Investigators are urging anyone with information or who can assist police in their efforts to ring Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit www.crimestoppers.com.au.”
