It's an extraordinary step, a shocking photo: A girl looks expectantly into camera, fringing around face, wearing a stripe of terry cloth-just like thousands of or boys and girls at that age, too. The photo is so commonplace and ordinary that a film runs involuntarily: What does this perhaps four-year-old child do next? Does it play, is re a reading story?
Wrong. The girl is done with same serious sexual violence. The police have gone to public with his face and made a lightning hit. The suspected perpetrator is caught, child in safe custody. For this success, investigators have hurt a lot: personality rights of victim, feelings of beholder. Neverless, this manhunt was correct. The ways of perpetrators on platforms of Darknets are always abysmal. Therefore, investigators should also be allowed to choose exceptional methods.
Only a few hours was face of child to be seen openly. The picture did not show abuse itself, but a situation probably immediately before it. The federal criminal and Central Office for combating Cybercrime had equipped Facebook, Twitter and or information pages with it. There was an above-average number of clues, and unusual approach caused a high level of attention.Abused girl-suspect from personal environment caught thanks to exciting public manhunt with photos of a four-year-old girl, investigators have a 24-year From Lower Saxony. He should have put pictures and videos into Darknet and "not be an unknown of family". More... Protection of privacy
A little later, BKA social media team asked to delete photos that had been shared online during manhunt-for reasons of victim protection. Why this is so delicate and why re is a need for a court order to show pictures of victims shows a glimpse into Basic Law-in article 1, which protects human dignity, and in article 2, which guarantees free development of personality.
The general right of personality protects private sphere of life, it grants each individual to shield mselves individually. It gives everyone right to determine representation of one's own person to anor. It means right to own image. Prosecutors, judges and investigators always move in a field of tension. They must not hudeln when weighing, even if it often takes valuable time. If you suspect a sexual abuse, you must decide on a case-by-case, wher danger to welfare of child is heavier than personal protection. Before a public investigation begins, all or investigative steps must be exhausted.
In case of girl, that was so. The suspected perpetrator was extremely cautious. Those telltale traces, in which investigators orient mselves in evaluation of children pornography material orwise, were absent. Sometimes faces of perpetrator are reflected in window panes, times are seen in background posters, which reveal place of crime. It was only in July that a worldwide network called "Elysium" had been uncovered, where sage and write 87 000 people were able to exchange Missbrauchvideos over a longer period of time.
