Police in B.C. laid 10 new charges on a convicted sex tourist accused of child sex offences in both Canada and Cambodia.
Christopher Paul Neil, known as "Swirly Face" for the way he digitally distorted his face in sexual abuse photos posted online, spent five years in a Thai prison after being found guilty in 2008 of molesting children in that country.
He was arrested Sept. 30, 2012 as he stepped off a plane in Vancouver, under a section of the Criminal Code pertaining to actions that can cause fear of sexual offences to persons under the age of 16.
Neil, 37, was released from custody less than a week later under strict conditions, including he not own any devices capable of accessing the Internet.
RCMP continued to investigate allegations he had raped young boys in Vietnam and Cambodia, while Vancouver police allege he has possessed and viewed child pornography since his return.
On Friday, he was charged with offences including sexual touching in Cambodia and possession of child pornography in Canada.
Neil remains in custody pending his next court appearance Monday.
