A DOCTOR accused of child pornography offences has been removed from his position at an Almeria health centre.

The 54-year-old was arrested in December for distributing child pornography, and later released with charges.

When he returned to his job at the Ejido Norte health centre, staff and patients who recognised him from his initials were uneasy about his presence.

The doctor was subsequently removed from his post by the Junta.

At the time of his arrest, police seized a laptop, four hard drives, a DVD player, a camera, three memory sticks, and thousands of ‘extremely hard’ pornographic files featuring children.

The arrests were made after an operation involving an international taskforce including Spain, New Zealand and the US.
