Australian Federal Police have executed two search warrants in Tasmania as part of a nationwide crackdown on alleged internet child abuse.
Operation Conquer has so far led to 20 arrests across Australia this week as police expose a network of online predators allegedly involved in sharing and distributing child exploitation material.
No one has been arrested in Tasmania in connection to the operation at this stage.
The AFP executed 36 search warrants in every state and territory and have seized thousands of images and videos depicting alleged online child sexual exploitation.
Charges range from producing, accessing, transmitting and making available child exploitation material.
These offences carry sentences of up to 15 years imprisonment. Possession charges relevant to applicable state legislation were also laid.
