MOSCOW, February 21 (Itar-Tass) —— More than 9,000 internet pages of child pornography were closed in 2011, Denis Davydov, the executive director of the Safe Internet League, told a news conference on Tuesday.
“Some 20,000 complaints from citizens and organizations were processed by the League last year,” Davydov said. He said most complaints, some 19,000, were against the circulation of child pornography. “Over 9,000 pages of child pornography were closed after we turned to the law enforcement bodies last year.” Davydov added.
Complaints against narcotics propaganda rate second (637 complaints). “After the protests of the Safe Internet League, hazardous contents were removed from 164 cites,” Davydov said.
As many as 18 criminal proceedings were instituted last year on the basis of the information the Safe Internet League had supplied.
