The U.S. Embassy in Hungary congratulates the Hungarian National Police and U.S Immigration and Customs Enforcement for their successful work together on an investigation resulting in the arrest of two Hungarian citizens on suspicion of engaging in child pornography activities.
In 2014, U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which is a branch of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, shared information with its Hungarian counterparts regarding an international child pornography organization. Thanks to successful cooperation with the regional ICE Attaché office in Vienna and their colleagues in the Charleston Office of the Homeland Security Investigations, Hungarian Special Police detectives arrested a 43-year-old male from Pest County and a 27-year-old Budapest man in their places of residence on April 14, 2015.
U.S. Ambassador to Hungary Colleen Bell noted, “As governments, we have no greater calling than working to protect the most vulnerable members of our society – our children – from exploitation and abuse. Our work together on this case is one clear example of how ongoing U.S. and Hungarian law enforcement cooperation helps each country better protect our children and all of our law-abiding citizens.”
