(QCOSTARICA) A phone call from Warsaw, Poland, alerted the Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ) of an alleged child pornography distribution by way of the internet operating from Costa Rica.

The call came last December. Last Friday, the OIJ raided a house in La Lima de Cartago. Although no arrests were made, agents confiscated computers, documents and other important evidence to continue their investigation in the case.

Walter Espinoza, head of the OIJ, explained that the Interpol office in Poland’s capital informed of the distribution of pornographic images involving children coming out of Costa Rica.

Although no arrests were made at the time of the raid, Espinoza believes they will soon learn the identity of the owners of the activity and arrests will follow.

“In the house there were several people and several computers. Based on the review (of the data) will be able to establish who was the user of each computer and the person in charge,” said Espinoza.

The OIJ chief added that the Warsaw report is very detailed, with information of the computers distributing information located in the country.
