Child porn makers not deported to Brazil

The Netherlands will not extradite two of its citizens to Brazil where they have been sentenced to long jail sentences for distributing child pornography, reports ANP news service.

Justice minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin has told MPs that extradition is not possible because there is no treaty between the two countries that guarantees that the men can serve their sentence in the Netherlands.
Parliament is to hold an emergency debate on the issue on Thursday evening.
