The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has run an online child pornography service, continuing to distribute indecent material to customers after seizing the site following an investigation into such activity in 2012.
According to court testimonies made by an FBI agent in Seattle, Washington, officials of the country’s domestic intelligence agency then “allowed thousands of pedophiles the ability to share images of children being raped, exposed, and abused” for two weeks after the seizure of the Nebraska-based illegal on-line operation, US-based daily Seattle Pi reported Tuesday.

The move by FBI agents, the report adds, was part of an effort to “identify” more than 5,000 customers that used or were affiliated with the child pornography service.

This is while the FBI has refused to discuss the potentially controversial probe or the possible motives of its investigators for continuing to run the criminal operation.
“This remains an ongoing investigation, and local court rules and Department of Justice policy prohibit me from providing more information at this time,” said Sandy Breault, spokeswoman for the FBI Omaha Division.
The report further adds that a home in western Washington State has also been raided in connection to the case since the seizure of the pornographic website but no criminal charges have been filed against anyone yet.
