They were producing the photos and video recordings in a studio in Cerveny Kostelec, east Bohemia, and were sending them abroad, Jezkova said.

The men abused almost 70 children aged over seven, she added.

Along with three Czechs and one Ukrainian, another four people from Spain, Sweden, France and Canada were detained and are now facing the charges, Jezkova said.

A man, 54, from the Nachod region is the mastermind of the crime. If convicted of people trafficking, he can be sentenced up to 15 years in prison, while the rest up to 12 years, Jezkova said.

The mastermind contacted boys and girls aged seven to 18 who were from the families in distress or were interested in having their children photographed, she added.

He promised them work in the publicity industry and photographing for foreign magazines, Jezkova said.

If they voiced interest, he invited them to his studio, where he and his accomplices made the pornographic photos and videos of the children, she added.

Without the children's and parents' knowledge, the photos and videos ended up on paid foreign webs and with private foreign clients, Jezkova said.
