In this sky news article the depth and breadth of the ring is described in more detail.
Hundreds of child abusers have been arrested and many jailed during the three-year, global operation.
The investigation exposed more than 70,000 network members in the UK, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Brazil, where first evidence of the crimes emerged.
The Australians charged with involvement in the ring were aged from 19 to 84 years old.
Grant Edwards, of the Australian Federal Police, said: “These are heinous sexual predators.”
And the homosexual aspect of this cannot really be denied:
Another paedophile caught in a spin-off operation in Thailand was Robert Horsman, 47 – a property developer originally from Ipswich.
He was jailed for 14 years for luring a 12-year-old boy and sexually assaulting him in his home in Pattaya.
