Vancouver: BC RCMP Integrated Child Exploitation (ICE) investigators in Vancouver arrested Christopher Paul Neil without incident. The arrest is in connection with two investigations – one by the BC RCMP Integrated Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit and the other by Vancouver Police Department.
After an extensive international investigation, in October 2007 Christopher Neil was arrested in Bangkok Thailand and charged with a series of sexual offenses against children. Neil was convicted in 2008 in Thailand, served his sentence and was released and returned to Canada in September 2012, where he was subject to a series of conditions. Neil remains in custody in connection with all 10 counts and is scheduled to make his next court appearance in Port Coquitlam Provincial Court. Given that this matter is before the courts, no further information will be released at this time.
