Investigators praised for fight against child porn

first_imgNZ Herald 25 June 2012The war against child pornography in New Zealand has resulted in o close to 200 convictions over the past five years, officials say. A Rotorua man is the latest sent to jail after a Department of Internal Affairs investigation. Steve O’Brien, who heads the department’s censorship compliance unit, told the Herald his team was making a “major impact” nationally and globally, and its approach has been described as world-leading. Forty-two-year-old Christopher David Harold Grant was sent to prison on Friday for three years after a tip-off from a US agency led investigators to him. In December 2010, a complaint to the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children in the United States revealed Grant had uploaded images of teenagers aged 13 to 15 in naked poses to a website three months before. He was arrested as part of an international investigation which resulted in five arrests in New Zealand and 55 others in 20 countries. Mr O’Brien said the most important part of his unit’s work was that it involved innocent children.…In other recent serious cases, Papamoa Beach cargo fumigation technician Cameron Mark Dunn last month admitted possessing and distributing child pornography – including images of babies and toddlers being sexually abused – over three years. In March, a Waikato businessman was sentenced to 10 months’ home detention after he was caught sharing files with an undercover investigator online. read more

first_img Sharing is caring! Share Share 10 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img Tweet LocalNews Adequate security a critical concern for Government of Dominica by: – June 30, 2011 Photo credit: karmickappuccino.comSeveral sectors of the community in the past months have been calling on the Government to implement measures which will provide address the concern of security on the island.In this year’s budget address Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said although the provision of adequate security to the population is a major challenge, the Government’s response to the issue is a multifaceted one.“A critical component is providing adeqate facilities to the security forces. In that regard, repairs are being undertaken to a number of police stations. New police stations are being considered but during the year focus will be on the completion of the Grand Bay Police Station” he said.Work on this project is said to be 65 % completed, and it is anticipated that it will be completed in the fiscal year 2011/2012.Another concern for the Government according to Mr. Skerrit is the security system at the state prison. He stated that they are working towards introducing a security system which is in tune with today’s technology.“Our points of entry and exit also need to be secured and as a result a customized border management software costing $4.6 million Canadian Bank Note is being developed. The introduction of this new border management programme will also address the issue of fraudulent travel documents and will enable the immigration officers “real time linkage” to the international security agencies thus allowing for immediate feedback on suspicious documents or individuals” he said.Government is also investing $4.9 million in a new system which will assist in validating important documents such as birth certificates and this will be implemented in the new fiscal year. This is particularly critical as last month the Dominica Police Force uncovered a passport scam and later arrested and charged three civil servants on several charges which included forging of birth certificates and other passport documents.The Melville Hall Fire Station which involves the contruction of the main building where the fire officers will be housed and another building to house equipments is 54% completed.

Hand in Hand

first_imgAll parents and grandparents relish those years when their family members are playing sports.  How else can you explain two people in their 70’s driving to watch the grandson/granddaughter play a ball game on Tuesday night with snow in the forecast?  Don’t get me wrong–I relished every minute Gina was playing and just wish our two grandchildren weren’t 700 miles away so we could see them play.  You have all seen the jump for joy of a kid into a parent’s arms after a big win or the parent consoling their son/daughter after a tough loss.  Nothing can replace those pictures of a dad walking hand in hand with a young son after his first game.  It is really impressive when you see the young child look up toward his dad and you can just imagine in his mind saying “boy, some day I hope to be just like my dad.”last_img read more

Cricket News Three Maidens In A Twenty20 International – Deepti Sharma Of India Creates Record

first_imgNew Delhi: In Twenty20 Internationals, bowling a maiden over is a rare feat. However, Deepti Sharma of India created a unique and historic feat in the Twenty20 International between India and South Africa at the Lalabhai Contractor Stadium in Surat on Tuesday.

Deepti was the star in what was a polished bowling performance from India in their defence of 131.Deepti bowled the third over of the innings and she started off with a maiden over. However, in her second over, she was brilliant by removing Tazmin Britts and Nadine de Klerk in the same over. With figures of 2-2-0-2, Deepti was taken off the attack only for her to return in grand style in the 14th over and bowl a wicket-maiden, having taken the scalp of Shabnim Ismail to leave South Africa reeling at 73/7. Deepti bowled the 19th over when South Africa were going for the attack but conceded just eight runs which did not include a single boundary. Deepti became the first Indian bowler and ninth overall to bowl three or more maidens in a Twenty20 International game. Carol Namugenyi of Uganda, Kayleen Green of Namibia, Constancia Kauripeke of Namibia, Anam Amin of Pakistan, Tasmeen Granger and Anesu Mushangwe of Zimbabwe and Margueritte Vumiliya of Rwanda are the others to have bowled three maidens.
