Elysium Member Admits Guilt in Dresden Court

In July, the Federal Criminal Police Office raided an apartment and arrested a 39-year-old male. At the same time, a massive darknet child abuse forum called Elysium suddenly went dark. The apartment belonged to the owner of the forum and the BKA had seized his servers. Six months later, one of the 87,000 Elysium members appeared at the Dresden District Court.

The Frankfurt Attorney General called Elysium “Europe’s largest child pornography platform.” He was not correct; at least two sites still dwarf Elysium, including one European forum. But the 87,000-member forum had gained traction. The site had chatrooms in German, English, French, Spanish and Italian. International authorities helped with the investigation. Austria, Italy, New Zealand and Australia aided in the arrest of Elysium members and identification of the forum’s owner. The owner, a man from Hesse, is facing an assortment of charges.

Authorities also arrested a 61-year-old from Bavaria and two other Germans in connection with launching the site, but the details and cases have been kept private. “The [darknet child pornography scene] is very well connected,” Georg Ungefuk, spokesman for the Frankfurt Attorney General said. “Many forums are closed forums […so] new sites like Elysium are spreading very fast.” Elysium grew to 87,000 users in less than six months. Ungefuk is unaware of how many international arrests have occurred as a result of the investigation. But for the most part, the arrests that came as a result of the Elysium investigation have involved people that committed “severe” sexual abuse and filmed themselves in the act, for instance. One member shared his daughters with an Elysium member.

41-year-old Dr. Clemens M., an engineer from Dresden, found himself in handcuffs only days after the BKA took Elysium down. He was one of 14 arrested suspects arrested in Germany (initial reports said 17 arrests). Dr. M faces charges for the severe sexual abuse of two girls in his home. His victims were the daughters of a family friend. He sexually assaulted and raped the girls between 2015 and 2017 when the girls were between three and five years old and between five and seven years old.

Prosecutor Nicole Klinger read the sexual abuse allegations described in the indictment. Even as gruesome as some of the facts were, Clemens M. did not deny committing his actions.

According to statements given at Dresden District Court, the girls did not tell anyone of the abuse. The BKA, assisted by the Central Office for Combating Internet Crime (ZIT) and other law enforcement groups, identified the man during the Elysium takedown. When the police raided his apartment in July, they discovered pictures and videos depicting various scenes of child abuse. Officers also found photographs of the two girls he had been abusing. The pictures matched videos of the girls that he had uploaded to the child abuse forum Elysium.

The court will reconvene in January 2018.

  1. Etha Frau (Alkohol) fühlt sich bedroht.
    Ursache: maßloser Konsum von Etha, zu viel.
    Info: Etha ist Stoff den man direkt zu sich nimmt
    und welcher einem die Wahrnehmung nimmt
    Cannbies wird nur inhaliert und hilft gegen schmerzen.
    Alkohol ist ganz böse was diese Frau ja bewießen hat.
    Der Teufels Weißer Schnee ist ein Demon

    Finde ich nicht okay das Alkohol das einzig wahre sein soll und man deswegen den Krieg gegen andere Stoffe führt!!
    Sowelche Leute sind auf einer Ver”anstallung” hängen geblieben!!!
    Allgemein ist zu sagen das der Konsum von Drogen nur bei einem gesunden Menschenverstand verträglich ist

  2. Do these guys not even bother to encrypt their harddrives? I dont get how police just raid them and instantly get access to their entire collections. I mean common

    or was that part just left out

    • Sometimes I ask myself that shit too, but maybe people just don’t encrypt and think TOR is 100% safe.

      Who knows, at least I’m glad fucking child rapers get arrested, they deserve death penalty not life time jail but maybe life time jail is better for them to get their brains fucked.
