    5 charged in Toronto-area bust of ‘big box store’ of child porn
    "Police have laid multiple charges after a years-long investigation into what they describe as a “big box store” of child pornography that supplied customers around the world.

    Provincial police announced the results of the investigation this morning, alongside members of Toronto police and members of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security."

    "They allege the operation used computer servers at a Toronto web-hosting business, offering millions of illegal images and videos to paying customers in more than 100 countries."

    OPP bust "big box store" of child pornography
    “I’m proud of the leadership being demonstrated to address the webhosts and administrators who – in Canada – have a legal duty and a responsibility to respond when they are made aware that illegal content is being trafficked through their infrastructure,” OPP Commissioner Thomas Carrique said in a statement released Thursday.

    “Not only have police reduced the number of ‘customers’ who abuse children online, we’ve removed the platform that held their monstrous content.”

    Police say they seized 32 servers from the Toronto office, comprising a total capacity of nearly one thousand terabytes of data.

    Five people associated with a company called “YesUp Media” have been charged – Zhen He (Patrick) Zeng,40, of Richmond Hill, Zhen Yu (Jeff) Zeng, 42, of Richmond Hill, Chin Choi (Peter) Kok, 52, of Richmond Hill, Sui Hua (Jeff) Ye, 47, of Aurora and Wen (Larry) Li, 31, of Toronto.

    They are scheduled to appear in a Toronto court in August.

    Police say a Canada-wide warrant has been issued for a resident of Vietnam.

    CHILD PORN BUST: Operation was sophisticated, massive
    "Cops called it a “big box store” filled with “really, really horrific” child pornography.

    The operation — housed in a nondescript North York office building — hosted the child porn website that had 60,000 registered users in 116 countries.

    The sicko’s servers contained 19,000 child pornography files that had been downloaded 19 million times.

    “Looking at the server banks this would have taken a huge length of time to set up, let alone creating the database of images and videos that were offered,” Keith Daniels told The Toronto Sun from his Florida home.

    Daniels was one of the pioneers of child pornography investigations, starting with the Ottawa Police before setting up task forces around the U.S."

    "A Canada-wide warrant has also been issued for the website’s suspected owner, Vinh Van Nguyen, 35, who is on the run in Vietnam.

    The Toronto-area men are back in court Aug. 1."
