The RCMP Provincial Internet Child Exploitation Unit (ICE) has charged a Chester man in a child pornography investigation.
On April 1st, 2015 at approximately 7:30 a.m., members of the ICE Unit with assistance from the Lunenburg County District RCMP and the Nova Scotia RCMP Technological Crime Unit executed a search warrant on a residence on Tremont St.
, Chester. Preliminary analysis of devices located at the residence confirmed they contained child pornography images.
Seventy-one year-old George Nemeskeri was arrested without incident and is facing charges of Possession of Child Pornography and Making Available Child Pornography. Nemeskeri was released from police custody on conditions and is to appear in Bridgewater Provincial Court on October 7th, 2015.
In Nova Scotia it is mandatory for citizens to report suspected child pornography. This means that anyone who encounters child pornography material or recordings must report it to the police. Failing to report suspicious activity and materials could result in penalties similar to failure to report child abuse set out in the Children and Family Services Act. The RCMP encourages citizens to be a voice for children who are victims of sexual exploitation by reporting any suspected offences to your local police or by using Canada’s National tip line for reporting online sexual exploitation of children at www.cybertip.ca.
