Toronto Film Company Centre of Child Pornography Investigation

Child Pornography Investigation

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for Toronto’s reputation and it’s not getting much better. Police have revealed that a Toronto-based film company was the centre of a three-year child pornography investigation.

Toronto police announced that over the course of the investigation, 348 people have been arrested and nearly 400 sexually abused children rescued.

At the heart of the child pornography ring was Toronto-based Azoz Films. The film company allegedly sold DVDs and streamed videos of naked children, which they marketed as “naturist” and claimed the “non-sexually explicit” material was legal in Canada and the U.S. Spoiler alert: it wasn’t.

With the help of law enforcement from the U.S. and Eastern Europe, Toronto police were able to determine the identities of customers using Azov Films’ databases, leading to a series of raids and arrests of purchasers of child pornography around the world.

“It is alleged that officers located hundreds of thousands of images and videos detailing horrific sexual acts against very young children – some of the worst they have ever viewed,” police told reporters.

Among the 348 people arrested in the international child sex abuse investigation were 40 teachers, six law enforcement personnel, nine pastors or priests and a few doctors and nurses. Translation: don’t trust your kids with anyone.

The owner of Azov Films, Canadian Brian Way, 42, has been in custody since his arrest in May 2011, and his company has since been shut down. The investigation, however, known as Project Spade, is still ongoing and police are certain that more arrests will be made – so stop watching child pornography, you perverts.
