Cho Ju-bin, a South Korean man, who ran the Nth Room, a sex slave chat room on Telegram, has been sentenced to 40 years in prison

The 25-year-old ran the massive pay-to-view digital pornography trafficking group called “Nth Room” on the Telegram app, where women were blackmailed into sharing sexual videos.

He was accused of sexual harassment. Many of the victims were minors.

According to BBC, at least 10,000 people used the chatrooms, with some paying up to USD1,200 (RM4,899) for access to one of the country’s biggest online sex abuse rings.

He led the blackmailing of at least 103 women, including 26 minors.

A South Korean court found him guilty of running an online network, which the authorities described as “virtual enslavement”

The Seoul Central District Court sentenced Cho for violating criminal and child protection laws by making and releasing pornography and running a criminal organisation, Reuters reported via Yonhap.

“The defendant had lured and threatened multiple victims in various ways to produce pornography and distributed it for a long time to many. He in particular inflicted irrecoverable damage to many victims by publishing their identifies,” Yonhap reported, citing the judge who handed down the verdict and sentence.

The Nth room case garnered national attention in South Korea earlier this year. Following which, on 23 March, the Seoul Broadcasting System revealed the personal information of the suspect.

Initially, authorities in South Korea did not view the case as a credible one and ignored the reports.

However, following media reports and public fury that saw five million people signing petitions asking for his anonymity to be lifted, on 24 March, a police committee took the unusual step of naming Cho.

It was the first case where an official identity disclosure measure had been taken for a sexual criminal.
