Amsterdam, 16 maart 2017

38-year old Aydin C. from Tilburg is sentenced to 10 years and 243 days of imprisonment for fraud and blackmail via the Internet. This is the maximum sentence the Court can impose on him.

C. deceived tenants, committed computer intrusion and blackmailed a man by online pretending to be a boy who was looking for sexual contacts.

But above all, C. abused dozens of young girls. He gained their trust by engaging in chat conversations with them, where he pretended to be a boy or a girl. C. subsequently abused this trust. In many cases, he was able to persuade the girls to perform sexual acts in front of a webcam.

Major impact

Later, C. would contact the girls again and demand they would perform new 'shows' in front of a webcam. If they refused, he would threaten to send images to people they knew or to post pictures on porn sites. Sometimes C. managed to abuse girls this way.

He did not stop at threats: If a girl did not comply with his demands, C. did not hesitate to actually send sexual images to the family and friends of the victims or to post those images on the Internet. It is clear that this can have a major impact on the personal development of young girls.

Maximum sentence

The Court calls C.'s behaviour astonishing. Since Aydin C. did not co-operate with a psychiatric evaluation, and it is therefore impossible to determine any disorder, the Court cannot impose an involuntary commitment measure.

Because of the devastating consequences his behaviour has on the young lives of the girls and because the Court is afraid C. will commit new serious offences when he is released, the Court imposes the maximum sentence.
