12.06.2012 - The INTERPOL specialist group on crimes
against children met at the INTERPOL General Secretariat headquarters in Lyon, on 4-7 June.
This meeting brought together 146 experts from 45 countries, non-governmental organisations and
the private sector, and it enabled the direct exchange of information to identify potential links
in investigations around the world and the sharing of good practices.
Exchanges of information and good practice at previous meetings and through the INTERPOL network
have already led to the identification of a number of child sexual offenders around the world. One
of the recent successes include Operation Laminar, that ended in May 2012, and targeted 55 main
suspects in 20 countries who were using social networking groups to exchange child abuse material.
