“Welcome to Video” Admin Fights Extradition with a Lawsuit

The administrator of a darkweb child pornography forum has been sued by his father in an attempt to block extradition to the United States for an assortment of child pornography and money laundering crimes.

The father of 24-year-old Jong-Woo Son, the administrator of the now-defunct child pornography forum “Welcome To Video,” has filed a complaint against his son for “violation of the law on criminal proceeds concealment.”

In the complaint, Son is accused of using his father’s personal information without consent to open an account on an undisclosed cryptocurrency trading forum. Son then allegedly used the account to receive and conceal proceeds of crime. The father also claims his son defamed his grandmother by clearing her hospital bill with crime proceeds.

Son ran Welcome To Video from mid-2015 to March 2018. Welcome To Video hosted more than 250,000 unique child exploitation videos, making it the largest child sexual exploitation market by volume of content, according to the US Department of Justice. The site reportedly received more than 420 bitcoins from its users. Son was arrested on March 5, 2018, in his residence in South Korea.

On April 27, 2020, Son completed his 18-month prison sentence in South Korea for producing and distributing child pornography. He was not released after completing his sentence and is now waiting on the Seoul High Court to rule on his extradition to the United States. A grand jury in the United States returned a nine-count indictment accusing Son of Conspiracy to Advertise Child Pornography; Advertising Child Pornography; Production of Child Pornography for Importation to the United States; Conspiracy to Distribute Child Pornography; Distribution of Child Pornography; and Money Laundering. Seoul High Court will rule only on the Money Laundering charge; double jeopardy laws prevent the court from making a decision based on the child pornography charges.

Seoul High Court will rule on the money laundering charges by the end of June 2020.

I second that! I’m actually from the U.S., and I sincerely hope this man’s family’s legal ploy is successful in preventing his extradition here. He’s a South Korean, dammit. Why can’t we leave him to the laws of his own country? I have absolutely no clue why my country has taken to trying to pretend as if its laws and jurisdiction extends across the entire globe, but this type of arrogance absolutely must end, and until it does I wish every instance of it that is attempted to fail miserably. Also - people - please think a little bit for yourself and realize that the general attitude and approach to child porn in the year 2020 has gotten more than a little out of hand. I’m not at all supporting child pornography, but I would like to call to mind that what we’re talking about here is sex. These kids, at least most of them, were likely not tortured, dismembered, or murdered. They merely had sex. I’m sure being exposed to sexual activity at...

bro i cannot believe this motherfucker is trying to white wash sexually abusing children and then exploiting it for profit. real libertarian content. this isn’t about the freedom to use drugs or own 50 guns.

for consenting adults, sex !=torture. an adult who had sex non consensually (rape or sexual assault) will tell u a different story. humans have collectively decided that children are unable to fully comprehend their actions, and the inherent power differential between adults and children makes things like coercion thru intimidation, promises of favors, and “this for that” deals extremely likely. ur opinion about victims of sexual abuse being “the type of people who have a lot of mental problems regardless” leads me to believe that maybe u have some mental problems urself. also, you feel worse for people who failed at life with no discernible reason (generally these people are called losers) than victims of traumatic experiences

fortunately for society,...

To thoughtful,

Sex with a child is not just sex, it’s rape, and rape is definitely torture. You are an idiot
