RIVERSIDE, CA
Riverside County man sentenced to 20 years for traveling to sexually abuse a 7-year-old boy 
RIVERSIDE, Calif. - A former resident of Mountain Center who was convicted last summer of possessing child pornography and sexually abusing a child has been sentenced to 20 years in federal prison.
James Sanders, 63, was sentenced this morning on charges stemming from "Operation Blue Orchid," an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) into a Russian organization that produced and sold child pornography videos depicting the graphic sexual abuse of young boys.
In June 2007, Sanders was found guilty following a two-week trial of conspiring to possess child pornography, possession of child pornography, traveling from California to New Mexico in December 2000 for the purpose of engaging in a sexual act with a boy under 12, and aggravated sexual abuse of that same boy. The victim, who was then 7, is the son of Sanders' longtime friends.
One of the original Blue Orchid defendants - a U.S. citizen who had purchased numerous Blue Orchid child pornography videos - had numerous Internet "instant message" communications with Sanders stored on his computer, which led authorities to Sanders and his computer, on which Sanders had stored child pornography. In his "instant message" communications, Sanders described, among other things, his sexual abuse of the 7-year-old boy. At the time, Sanders was the property manager of a girls' camp.
"The victimization of children for sexual purposes is one of the most heinous crimes imaginable," said United States Attorney Thomas P. O'Brien. "This is why prosecuting child predators is one of the top priorities of the Justice Department."
Sanders previously pleaded no contest to child molestation charges in New Mexico and was sentenced to three years in state prison. He was charged with possession of child pornography in a federal indictment in June 2004 while he was in prison in New Mexico. In June 2006, a federal grand jury returned a superseding indictment that charged Sanders with interstate travel to have sex with a minor and aggravated sex abuse of a minor.
"This sentence sends a strong message to child sex predators that there will be high price to pay for their actions," said Jennifer Silliman, deputy special agent in charge for the ICE office of investigations in Los Angeles. "We owe it to the young victims to pursue these cases aggressively, since many of the children will bear the emotional scars of this trauma for rest of their lives."
ICE received assistance in "Operation Blue Orchid" from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and New Mexico law enforcement officials.

RIVERSIDE COUNTY MAN SENTENCED 
TO 20 YEARS IN PRISON FOR TRAVELING TO SEXUALLY ABUSE A 7-YEAR-OLD BOY
RIVERSIDE, Calif. – A former resident of Mountain Center who was convicted last summer of possessing child pornography and sexually abusing a child was sentenced this morning to 20 years in federal prison.
James Sanders, 63, was sentenced by United States District Judge Virginia A. Phillips.
Last June, following a two-week trial, Sanders was found guilty of conspiring to possess child pornography, possession of child pornography, traveling from California to New Mexico in December 2000 for the purpose of engaging in a sexual act with a boy under 12, and aggravated sexual abuse of that same boy. The victim, who was then 7, is the son of Sanders' longtime friends.
Sanders was prosecuted as a result of "Operation Blue Orchid," an investigation conducted by United States customs officials into a Russian organization that produced and sold child pornography videos depicting the graphic sexual abuse of young boys. One of the original Blue Orchid defendants – a United States citizen who had purchased numerous Blue Orchid child pornography videos – had numerous internet "instant message" communications with Sanders stored on his computer, which led authorities to Sanders and his computer, on which Sanders had stored child pornography. In his "instant message" communications, Sanders described, among other things, his sexual abuse of the 7-year-old boy. At the time, Sanders was the property manager of a girls' camp.
"The victimization of children for sexual purposes is one of the most heinous crimes imaginable," said United States Attorney Thomas P. O'Brien. "This is why prosecuting child predators is one of the top priorities of the Justice Department."
Sanders previously pleaded no contest to child molestation charges in New Mexico and was sentenced to three years in state prison. He was charged with possession of child pornography in a federal indictment in June 2004 while he was in prison in New Mexico. In June 2006, a federal grand jury returned a superseding indictment that charged Sanders with interstate travel to have sex with a minor and aggravated sexual abuse of a minor.
"This sentence sends a strong message to child sex predators that there will be high price to pay for their actions," said Jennifer Silliman, deputy special agent in charge for the ICE office of investigations in Los Angeles. "We owe it to the young victims to pursue these cases aggressively, since many of the children will bear the emotional scars of this trauma for rest of their lives."
This case is the result of an international investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (formerly the United States Customs Service), which received the assistance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department and New Mexico law enforcement officials.

El fin de una red de pedofilia

STOP BOYLOVER MOVEMENT IN WORLD!
Will McBride and Bernard Myburgh 
 

Nueve personas ya fueron detenidas por su vínculo con el sitio clausurado.
Los viejos enemigos unieron sus fuerzas para combatir la pornografía infantil, en una acción que culminó con el arresto de cuatro ciudadanos estadounidenses y cinco rusos.
Así lo confirmó el director interino del servicio de aduanas de EE.UU., Charles Winwood, quien dio detalles del operativo "Orquídea Azul", por el nombre del sitio internet, ahora proscrito.
Los detenidos están acusados de producir y distribuir videos que muestran el abuso sexual de niños rusos de hasta ocho años de edad.
Las investigaciones continúan en varios países -entre ellos, Dinamarca, Holanda y Suecia- para establecer la identidad de otros implicados.
De acuerdo con las estimaciones del gobierno de Estados Unidos, se cree que existen cerca de 100.000 sitios internet involucrados directa o indirectamente en la distribución de pornografía infantil.
Camuflaje cibernético
El sitio "Orquídea Azul" vendió varios cientos de copias de videos a por lo menos 80 personas, durante los diez meses que estuvo operativo. Por cada copia cobraba entre US$ 200 y 300.
Haciéndose pasar por clientes, inspectores estadounidenses ayudaron a sus colegas rusos a seguir la pista de los responsables.
"La operación Orquídea Azul demuestra que no existen fronteras para lograr el objetivo común de proteger a los niños", señaló Winwood.
"Lamentablemente, también prueba que no existen límites a la hora de explotar a niños indefensos", agregó.
Las autoridades estadounidenses y rusas señalaron que el reciente roce diplomático entre Washington y Moscú no afectó su plan de cooperación para el combate a la pedofilia, iniciado hace un año.
Modus operandi
Según las autoridades, el sitio clausurado anunciaba los títulos de películas en las cuales había menores de edad involucrados en actos sexuales.
Los clientes enviaban dinero en giros internacionales y luego un mensaje electrónico con las instrucciones para el envío.
Los paquetes se enviaban por correo privado y los documentos incautados en Rusia indican que hubo compradores en todo el mundo, aunque la mayoría residía en EE.UU.
Internet descubre su rostro más oscuro
Antes de que la Web se convirtiera en un fenómeno extendido por todo el mundo, los pedófilos eran individuos solitarios y perseguidos. Las autoridades tenían la pornografía infantil (pedofilia) controlada. Pero hoy las redes de abusadores de menores proliferan en todo el mundo
El padre Fortunado Di Noto es un cura italiano que dirige una parroquia, la Madonna del Carmine, en Avola, un pequeño pueblo costero de Sicilia. Había comenzado a dar clases de Internet a los chicos de su parroquia pues creía que era una herramienta fundamental. En una de las primeras reuniones de este grupo de estudio informal, una nena dijo que quería buscar "chupetines" -empleando la palabra corriente en italiano-. El Padre Fortunado tipeó la palabra en el motor de búsqueda. Pero chupetín también es la palabra usada en argot para mencionar al acto sexual; encontró una conexión con el Frente de Liberación Pedófilo que defiende el estilo de vida de la gente con atracción sexual hacia los niños.
A través de esa conexión, el Padre Fortunato encontró otros sitios, y descubrió cartas dirigidas a niños intentando atraerlos. "Tengo suerte porque tengo fe", dice el cura. "De no ser así, estoy seguro que habría salido con una ametralladora a hacer justicia por mano propia." El Padre Fortunato buscó otro tipo de justicia. Cuatro años después, él y tres colegas lograron conseguir pruebas de las atrocidades, incluyendo fotos de violaciones de niños y bebés. El cura rastreó una red delictiva que conecta a distribuidores y usuarios de ese tipo de pornografía con aquellos que abusan de los niños y que han creado una subcultura en los oscuros rincones de la red. "Al comienzo eran sólo fotos de chicos desnudos," cuenta el sacerdote. "Pero progresivamente, empecé a descubrir torturas." Terminó ayudando a los investigadores a quebrar una importante red internacional de pedófilos que tenía el centro de operaciones en Rusia y a concretar varias detenciones.

En unas semanas, el gobierno de Estados Unidos anunciará una serie de medidas contra los supuestos consumidores de pornografía infantil en más de una decena de ciudades de ese país. Los agentes de la aduana ya tienen varios blancos de investigación entre consumidores de un sitio de Moscú llamado Blue Orchid (Orquídea Azul) que, entre otras actividades, difunde un tape en el que se golpea a un niño. Miles de chicos de todo el mundo han sido brutalmente abusados para crear las imágenes distribuidas en la red, y la demanda de fotos va en aumento, alimentada por la difusión de Internet. Eso a su vez, genera más abusos. La pornografía infantil adquiere muchas formas, desde fotos de chicos en baños hasta terribles imágenes de torturas y violaciones de bebés. Obviamente, los chicos que aparecen en las fotos y en los videos no tuvieron la opción de negarse a hacerlo.
Hace aproximadamente 20 años, las autoridades de Estados Unidos creían tener bajo control la pornografía infantil. Perseguían a vendedores y compradores -que se valían del correo y los laboratorios fotográficos de los barrios- a tal punto que los pedófilos encontraban difícil interactuar entre sí, o siquiera localizarse unos a otros. Con frecuencia, optaban por cruzar fronteras y llegar a Sri Lanka y Filipinas donde hay más víctimas disponibles y leyes menos estrictas. De repente, los pedófilos pasaron a usar sus propias computadoras para hacer copias instantáneas de fotos -tomadas de un club de Internet de un sitio Web ubicado, por ejemplo, en Moscú- y enviarlas a otros pedófilos de cualquier parte del mundo. Hombres que tenían fantasías que les resultaban difíciles de reconocer encuentran ahora una "comunidad" en clubes on line y chatrooms dedicados a sexo preadolescente. Ya no necesitan recorrer los peores barrios de una ciudad en busca de fotos o películas; pueden charlar con sus amigos y bajar material en su propia casa. Tampoco necesitan exponerse en la esquina de una escuela para trabar contacto con algún joven: a través de Internet, pueden entrar a un hogar, presentarse a un adolescente e iniciar un prolongado proceso de seducción.
Hoy, las redes internacionales de pedofilia comercializan cientos de miles de imágenes. Cuando las fuerzas policiales de 13 países desbarataron la red Wonderland Internet en 1998, descubrieron archivos de computadora con tres cuartos de millón de imágenes de pornografía infantil sólo en Gran Bretaña. (Cada uno de los 200 miembros del grupo de chat de Wonderland Internet debía aportar 10.000 imágenes para sumarse al grupo). La policía del Reino Unido identificó 1.263 víctimas diferentes, todas por debajo de la edad de la pubertad. En los Países Bajos, cuando, ese mismo año, un grupo de activistas desbarató el grupo de abusadores de menores Apollo dirigido por el general Ulrich, se descubrieron instalaciones para copias de CD-ROM en la casa de Ulrich; la policía holandesa identificó más de 200 víctimas. Muchas de las imágenes de los CD de Ulrich y Wonderland mostraban niños de hasta 3 meses sometidos a actos sexuales explícitos. Una serie de casos recientes ilustra el funcionamiento de estas redes globales. El año pasado se desbarató un sitio pornográfico dirigido por Wayne Camolli en Palm Beach, a raíz de una denuncia de la policía belga. Habían detectado que seguidores del notorio pedófilo belga Marc Dutroux habían enviado material pornográfico a Camolli, que fue condenado a 16 meses de prisión. En la casa de Dutroux, la policía encontró 500 videos, muchos con imágenes de violaciones de niños.
Una investigación realizada por agentes de aduana de Estados Unidos en 1999 reveló la demanda de fotos de pornografía infantil. Un sitio conocido como Tajik Express porque la dirección web era de Tajikistan (aunque el servidor era de Massachusetts) registró 4.107 pedidos de usuarios de Internet en el primer mes, además de 95.450 bajadas de imágenes. En su tercer mes, el sitio registró 147.776 visitas de usuarios individuales y 3,2 millones de bajadas de imágenes. El sitio fue clausurado a pedido de la aduana y seis personas fueron arrestadas. Los especialistas sostienen que la divulgación de la pornografía infantil, y el fácil acceso a gente que la consume a través de Internet, tiene un "efecto legitimizador" que lleva al pedófilo a pensar que sus impulsos son correctos dado que son compartidos por tantos otros. Eso alimenta la demanda de este tipo de material y con ella la cantidad de niños abusados.

PEDOPHOCRACIA

FROM BRUSSEL...

"Desde el cómodo asiento de nuestras vidas… nunca podríamos haber imaginado que  miles de adultos de bien, integraran e incluso rindieran culto al sentir placer viendo a niños torturados y asesinados." 
De un editorial de primera página en el Corriere della Sera de Italia, reimpreso en The Irish Times, 29 de septiembre del 2000

"Detectives británicos están intentando cerrar un sitio web que muestra fotografías de un hombre comiéndose a un bebé desmembrado… el sitio web, con base en California… ha sido relacionado con abuso ritual de niños… Un segundo sitio web que muestra escenas similares de abusos sádicos y de rituales ha sido exitosamente  cerrado." 
Independent, 21 de febrero de 2001 

"Los Pedófilos pueden descaradamente y valientemente afirmar lo que ellos escogen... yo también soy teólogo y como teólogo, creo que es el deseo de Dios que exista cercanía e intimidad, unidad de la carne, entre las personas... los pedófilos pueden hacer la aserción que la persecución de intimidad y amor es lo que ellos escogen. Con temeridad, ellos pueden decir, 'creo que esto es de hecho parte del deseo de Dios'. " 
Ralph Underwager, testigo 'experto' de la defensa en juicios por casos de abusos de niños y ex-miembro vocal de la Fundación del Síndrome de la Falsa Memoria, en una entrevista en Paidika (una publicación en pro de la pedofilia), llevada acabo en junio de 1991.


U.S. Customs, Moscow City Police team up against child pornography

Operation Blue Orchid began in May 2000 when Russian authorities asked the U.S. Customs Service for assistance in identifying the owners and customers of a Russian-based Internet site that was selling child pornography. The Blue Orchid Web site sold videotapes and CD-ROMS of adults sexually abusing 8- to 15-year-old children.
"One of the encouraging aspects of Operation Blue Orchid was the extent to which law enforcement agencies on opposite ends of the globe worked so closely together," said U.S. Customs Acting Commissioner Charles Winwood at a well-attended Customs press event held on March 26. "There really are no borders when it comes to our mutual interest in protecting children."

The Web siteThe Blue Orchid Web site, which operated between March and October 2000, promoted four collections of child pornography videotapes and CD-ROMs. The "Thief's Punishment" series, which was made for Blue Orchid in December 1999, contained two videos that depicted the forcible rape and physical abuse of a 15-year-old boy. Three other collections available for purchase were titled "Russian Flowers," "Girls," and "Man and Boy."


These videos sold for $300 each or two for $580. Customers from 15 different countries purchased one or more videos or CD-ROMs. Most of these customers were traced back to the United States. Some customers were secondary distributors who copied the videos and then sold them to their clients.



The investigationThe investigation into the Blue Orchid Web site evolved from two previous child pornography cases that were conducted by the Moscow City Police, Criminal Investigation Division, and the Customs Attaché's Office in Moscow. These two cases laid the foundation of the mutual respect and cooperation between U.S. Customs and the Moscow City Police.

In May 2000, an informant from the second child pornography case told the Moscow City Police about the Blue Orchid Web site. The Moscow City Police asked the U.S. Customs Attaché's Office in Moscow for assistance in identifying unknown Russians who were linked to the Web site.


"I told the Moscow City Police that U.S. Customs would buy a video from the Web site to bust these guys," explains Marshall Heeger, Assistant U.S. Customs Attaché in Moscow. "When we proceeded to work together, I immediately contacted the Customs CyberSmuggling Center in Fairfax, Va., where the undercover purchase from the Blue Orchid Web site occurred."

After the undercover buy, analysts at the CyberSmuggling Center sent investigative information to the U.S. Customs Attaché office in Moscow. Moscow City Police used this vital data to identify and apprehend Vsevolod Solntsev-Elbe, who was the creator and business manager of Blue Orchid.

In December 2000, the Moscow City Police captured Elbe when he returned to his home with a 13-year-old boy. The boy was identified as a frequent victim in the "Russian Flowers" series.


When the Moscow City Police detained Elbe, he gave up Sergey Garbko, Blue Orchid webmaster. That same night, when the police searched Elbe's residence, they found child pornography master tapes, copy tapes, video equipment, Blue Orchid business records, and his pager, but no computer.

The business records revealed almost 80 clients, including 22 individuals who lived in the United States. U.S. Customs Moscow Attaché's Office forwarded the names of the identified individuals to the appropriate domestic and foreign Customs field offices to start their own investigations.

After Garbko paged Elbe with a message that he was in the hospital, Moscow City Police officers Eduard Lapatik and Yuri Ponomarenko, and Customs Attaché investigator Sergey Kishkinsky, searched all the area hospitals until they found Garbko.

Upon their return to Moscow, Kishkinsky and Customs Attaché Michael Woodworth assisted Lapatik and Ponomarenko in the search of Garbko's residence, where they found a computer revealing every client and address. U.S. Customs forwarded all the information to the appropriate field offices in the United States.

In February 2001, the Moscow City Police identified the 15-year-old boy in the "Thief's Punishment" series and brought him to Moscow for questioning. The boy identified Victor Razumov as the man who raped and abused him in the videos. Based on the boy's testimony, Razumov was arrested for forcible sexual assault. Razumov is currently awaiting trial, and if convicted, he faces 8-10 years in prison.

That same month the Moscow City Police identified Aleksei Tormazov who was another actor in the "Thief's Punishment" videos. Tormazov was in a Siberian prison camp for murder, and he was brought back to Moscow to face charges of forcible sexual assault.


Because Russian law does not distinguish between child and adult pornography, Garbko and Elbe face a prison term of no more than two years for the production and distribution of child pornography. A new Russian law allows criminals who face charges of two years or less to go free until their trials begin, which includes pedophiles such as Garbko and Elbe.



The enforcement multiplierThe United States and other countries began their own investigations of Blue Orchid customers. Approximately 50 leads were sent to U.S. Customs Attaché's Offices around the world. From the Blue Orchid investigation, enforcement actions have been completed in Sweden, Denmark, and the Netherlands. Currently, investigations are underway in a number of other European countries.

On the U.S. home front, Customs, along with other U.S. officials, pursued leads. One customer in particular was identified as Glenn Martikean of Portage, Ind.

An informant told Eduard Lapatik, head of the Criminal Investigation Division, Moscow City Police, that Martikean planned to arrive at the Intourist Hotel in Moscow on January 24, 2001, and that Martikean needed an interpreter.

An undercover Russian detective, who posed as the interpreter, went with the informant to Martikean hotel room. Over the course of the next several days, Martikean revealed that he had traveled to Russia to have sex with boys. The U.S. Customs Attaché's Office provided this information to the SAIC Office in Chicago.

On January 26, 2001, Martikean arranged to have a 12-year-old boy brought to his hotel room. The Moscow City Police arranged for hotel security to remove the boy from the room. The boy was then turned over to Moscow City Police for questioning. During the interview with the boy, they learned that the boy was 14 years old. Because the age of consensual sex in Russia is 14 years, Martikean did not violate Russian law.

At the same time, back in Portage, Ind., U.S. Customs Chicago SAIC agents searched Martikean residence. Among the items seized were a Blue Orchid CD-ROM and its installation instructions.

The next day, Martikean told the undercover policeman that U.S. Customs searched his home, and that he did not want to go back to the United States. The quick-thinking and clever policeman told Martikean about another American pedophile (Heeger, undercover) who was living in Moscow.

On January 29, 2001, Martikean met Heeger, who was posing as a pedophile from California. Heeger convinced Martikean that it was safe for him to return home to collect his belongings and then travel to Canada before heading back to Russia. "Martikean was desperate, he needed a friend and a plan, and to him I was that person," explains Heeger.

On January 31, 2001, Martikean and Heeger flew to Chicago O'Hare Airport. U.S. Customs special agents and local task force officers followed them to Indiana, and then stopped them right before they arrived at Martikean's home in Portage.

Martikean was indicted on three counts of travel with intent to have sex with a minor, along with three counts of possession, distribution, and receipt of child pornography. He currently is awaiting trial.

The U.S.-Russian investigation demonstrated the powerful impact of international collaboration toward a common objective. Now and in the future, joint efforts will be critical because of the transnational nature of cyber-based criminals. "Without the cooperation of our Moscow colleagues, Blue Orchid could never have developed into such an international cooperative success," says Heeger.
The sobering facts
Online child pornography is a global problem. With the advent of the personal computer and the Internet, individuals can easily transmit child pornography in seconds to all corners of the world. Here are some facts about child pornography and the Internet:
  • An estimated 100,000 Web sites are involved in some way with child pornography.
  • International Internet trafficking of child pornography is proliferating at an alarming rate. Since January 2000, the U.S. Customs CyberSmuggling Center in Fairfax, Va., has reviewed more than 10,000 tips.
  • Internet related child exploitation is relatively new. Unfortunately, it has been the driving force behind the resurgence of child pornography.
  • Pedophiles often use the very latest computer encryption software to encrypt their photographs or put them in a code that can only be read with special software.
  • Child pornography images can be downloaded onto a computer and sent over the Internet to anywhere in the world.





Do you know where your children are?

  • Train your child to never give away his/her real name, phone number, home address, or e-mail address to anyone on the Internet without parental permission.
  • Put any computer with Internet access in a central area of the house where it can be easily monitored.
  • Find out who your child's online buddies are.
  • Review your child's Internet activities by checking the computer's bookmarks, cache, or history to find out what your child is accessing.
  • Consider using filtering software that will assist in blocking inappropriate content. Blocking software is only as good as the company that makes it. Help sites like Get Net Wise have search engines that let you see if a company publishes criteria for filtering, a list of filtered sites, and the key words it uses to block unwanted material.
  • If you believe someone is trying to exploit your child, call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1 (800) 843-5678; send an e-mail to cybertipline.com; or visit the Missing and Exploited Children Web site. Since the center launched its CyberTipline in March 1998, it has analyzed some 37,000 reports on child exploitation.


Customs needs your help
Because there is no easy formula for discovering and identifying a consumer or purveyor of child pornography, U.S. Customs needs your help. If you have information about or suspect this type of illegal activity, contact:

  • U.S. Customs Service: 1 (800) BE-ALERT

  • National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (Cyber Tipline): 1 (800) 843-5678

Fast facts on Customs CyberSmuggling CenterLocated in Fairfax, Va., the Customs CyberSmuggling Center, part of the Office of Investigations, is one of the Customs Service's major detective tools, surpassed only by the agency's human talent, to investigate international criminal activity conducted on, or aided by, the Internet. It opened for business in October 2000.

Taking advantage of the center's cutting-edge hardware and software, cybersmuggling agents investigate, and solve, cases involving:
  • international child pornography;
  • international money laundering;
  • offshore computer banking;
  • drug trafficking, including the illegal distribution of legal medications like prescription drugs and steroids;
  • violations of intellectual property rights, including music and computer software;
