Rene Kinzett – went by the tag “UKcloudybi Perv” & has been sentenced to a paltry 45 months. Speaking after the sentencing NCA senior investigating officer Graham Ellis said:
“Offenders who take part on these online forums, or possess these depraved images, do so knowing that the children have been abused.
“They believe they can access images and videos online and stay anonymous. They’re wrong. NCA and police officers are highly trained and experienced, there is no place to hide, we will catch you.”
A spokesman said: “Kinzett utilised social media and the digital realm to view appalling acts of sexual abuse against children.
“The popularity of live-streaming presents serious child protection issues, not least providing a platform for offenders to locate and share sickening footage of children being harmed.
“The NSPCC is calling on the UK Government to introduce tough regulation of social networks to make sure measures are in place to protect children from abuse over live-streaming and video chat.”
South Wales Police detective inspector Clive Bevan said investigating sexual violence was a priority for the force.
He said: “We are committed to investigating all reports of sexual abuse, including online – regardless of when they occurred – in order to ensure that those who exploit the most vulnerable members of society are brought to justice.
“We have dedicated teams to help and support victims of sexual offences and we work closely with a number of agencies to whom we are able to signpost victims should they wish.
“South Wales Police urges anyone who has been the victim of sexual abuse to come forward, safe in the knowledge that they will be treated with respect and dignity by our specialist officers.
He added: “Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility and we urge anyone with information that could help police to contact police.”
