a former member of the unit dedicated to cyber crime. 80 percent of our records are stories and cases uses social media, and there's a huge difference investigating a crime like a scene. well robbery. case of homicide. ok. so martyr. there is a this is a huge procedure of how you can proceed. cybercrime, the people than the law, they do not understand the we can adjust, how can the someone see stand and that they're mean we step on behind those who speak them, icing them another we in the social media and straight course, they're outside. they're not here. weeks, months, several months for us to wire, the information that we saw. now we have, we need, we need a lot of information to be able to identify a list of people behind the cybercrime. so for the
12:52 pm
last decade or so, we've been focusing on making the world more open and connected and want to join with us. and we're always going to do this. but i used to think that if we just gave people a voice and help, some people can act that that would make the world a lot better all by itself. and in a lot of ways, it has police teams across the world joining forces to investigate and combat 6. extortion. on one of these collaboration has led the philippines police to launch operation, strike back operation strike about the syndicate syndicate and brought in 6 arson cases. so for me, oh oh,

a prize she'd read to see in the little sister she was innocent insisting that there are another one in the village, but mostly it's the real concern. and she was just being scapegoated she almost convinced me. i mean, she told me that she can set up, she was crying or to what do you think about the men who fought for this? she said extreme. i just figured i told her i told her the 2 of them don't do it again because we've learned your lesson or so she, she can switch quite quickly and it's clear, quite persuasive and oil income for the person from the associate who probably destroyed her us who we had to paris was a risk. you don't charge is a robbery. i mixed all shit. but the case was dismissed because no probable cause
12:56 pm
