I briefly skimmed and searched the PDF for keywords, but I only found
reference to terrorism connections, not child pornography.
Debus said "Instead many of the DVDs that are being bought by members of
the Australian public today are effectively being bought from crime
syndicates who are also engaged in drug trading, child pornography and
other henous crimes." I'd be keen to know the source of that
information and how close the links are.
This NZ story is one example of a link
http://www.stuff.co.nz/4629381a11.html but is it a regular occurrence?
