PATTAYA: A Russian national was arrested on Thursday for possessing child pornographic materials.

Acting on a search warrant approved by the Pattaya Provincial Court, police searched a room occupied by Alexey Fadeev in Bang Lamung district in Chon Buri after investigators had tracked his behaviours.

They seized a notebook computer with more than 300 porn clips, four of them involving boys.

Tourist Police commander Surachate Hakparn said Mr Fadeev, 39, was charged with having child porn media. The offence carries a maximum fine of 100,000 baht and/or a jail term no more than five years.

Pol Maj Gen Surachate said police will further check whether he had used the porn images for commercial purposes. He could be charged with human trafficking if the clips were linked to sex trade.
