cfseu(ST. JOHN’S, NL) – October 10, 2014 – The Combined Forces Special

Enforcement Unit (CFSEU – NL) is an integrated investigative unit consisting of

personnel from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the Royal

Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC).

The CFSEU-NL Internet Child Exploitation Unit is seeking the public’s assistance

in relation to a media story which aired yesterday. The story concerned a male

individual walking along Thorburn Road without clothing. It is reported that a

number of people passing by took photos of the individual which were

subsequently posted and shared on various social media websites. The public is

advised that the individual was less than 18 years of age and that the posting

and/or sharing of photos of this incident over the internet may constitute an

offence under the Child Pornography laws outlined in the Criminal Code of

Canada. Therefore, the CFSEU-NL is seeking the public’s assistance in

removing these pictures from any social media sites where they may have

posted the photo.
