WARSAW, Jun 11 – Police nabbed 21 suspects across Poland on allegations of dealing in online child pornography following a tip-off from German authorities, a police spokesman said Tuesday.

Eight of the suspects admitted to the allegations of whom four have already been charged, national police spokesman Mariusz Sokolowski said in a statement.

One was placed under court-ordered detention for three months pending trial, he added.

Officers seized 32 computers, five hard drives and more than 1,500 computer discs in the nationwide swoop, he said, adding that the ring was suspected of propagating both photos and videos.

In Poland, possession and distribution of child pornography carries a maximum sentence of eight years behind bars.
