Spain: Police inspector jailed on child pornography charges
MADRID (AP) — A Madrid court has ordered a police inspector to prison without bail on provisional charges of child prostitution and possessing child pornography material.
A statement Monday from Madrid’s regional justice tribunal said the case would be transferred to a court in Alicante, which was already investigating the National Police inspector for possessing child pornography material.
The National Police said it was unable to give any further details while the investigation continued.
Spanish National Television and other media outlets said the 54-year-old lived with his mother in a country house outside Madrid where he allegedly brought children to make pornographic videos in exchange for money and presents.
The inspector was arrested Thursday.
