PATHUM THANI: Officials from the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) arrested a 28-year-old man, who claimed to work as a child model agent, with 500,000 child porn pics and charged him with molesting thousands of children.

Danudet Saengkaeo, also known as Nene, was arrested at a house in the Pruksa 13 housing estate in Khlong Luang district on Thursday morning. The place was used as the office of Nene Modeling, a well-known child model agency.

DSI director-general Korawat Panprapakorn, who led the arrest team, said DSI officials had received a child pornographic picture from Australian Federal Police, which suspected Thailand was the source.

Pol Lt Col Korawat said that along with the arrest, DSI found more than 500,000 files of pornographic pictures of boys, the biggest lot of child pornographic pictures seized in one raid to date.

The DSI chief said that the pictures showed molestation of thousands of children. Apart from prosecution, DSI and relevant parties would provide victims with physical and mental rehabilitation and help them demand compensation, he said.
