Man arrested for Filming and Selling Child Porn in Pakistan

Over 6,500 video clips of child porn were found to be in accused Saadat Amin’s possession. He was an accomplice to a Norwegian man called James Lindstorm.

“He would pay between $100 and $400 for different videos involving young boys"

After the horrific Kasur child sexual abuse scandal in 2015, a recent discovery of a child pornography racket has shaken up Pakistan. Once again casting doubt on the safety and security levels of children and women in the country.

According to news reports, the Federal Investigative Agency (FIA) in Pakistan arrested 45-year-old Saadat Amin from Sargodha for filming and selling child porn to foreign countries.

Amin confessed to luring 25 children into committing the abominable act by pretending to educate them about computers. He also revealed that he was introduced to the child porn industry by a Norwegian man James Lindstorm:

“He [Lindstorm] would pay me between $100 and $400 for different videos involving young boys,” Amin told investigators. Lindstrom is suspected to be a member of the international racket of child pornography business and was Amin’s main client.

An FIA official further revealed that:

“During interrogation Amin revealed that he had been selling child pornographic content online for the last few years. Amin used to lure children on the pretext of imparting computer education.”

“He even paid between 3,000 and 5,000 Pakistani rupees to the parents of the victims, saying that their children would learn computer hardware and software (skills) at his one-room rented workshop in Sargodha.”

In its investigation, the FIA discovered that the culprit had plans to travel to Norway with these children to shoot pornographic videos there. The travels arrangements were made by Lindstorm.

Apart from producing his own content, Amin was also making money by hacking into Russian and Bangladeshi porn websites.

So far 65000 video clips of child porn have been recovered from Amin. And these victims are aged between 8 to 14 years.

While the FIA official has called it “a one-of-its-kind” incident, it’s not the first time that Pakistanis have been hit by the news of child sexual abuse.

The Kasur scandal was perhaps the biggest and most shocking case in the country’s history which affected the lives of over 250 children.

The country’s image is marred by child rape cases and child abuse.

According to UNICEF study in 2015, child sex abuse cases had risen by 17% in Pakistan.
