Dutchman Aydin C. found guilty in Amanda Todd . case

Amanda Todd from Port Coquitlam, Canada, was 12 years old when she was persuaded ‘by a stranger’ to show her breasts on webcam. She was later approached by that person again. He threatened to send the topless photo to her friends unless she gave ‘a show’.

Topless on Facebook

Two years later, the photo was circulated on Facebook to her friends, after which the bullying started. She was bullied online and at school. She became depressed, used drugs and alcohol, and saw the only solution: to flee from her bullies. But the photos continued to haunt her at other schools as well.

According to prosecutors in Canada, C. was the one who harassed Todd online. During the trial, the officer read out several messages that the Dutchman would have sent to Todd.

Serving a sentence in the Netherlands

The jury’s verdict comes after a weeks-long trial. Aydin C., who was already convicted in the Netherlands in 2018 for digital stalking and extortion, pleaded ‘not guilty’ in the case.

It is not yet known what punishment C. will be imposed. It is clear that he will serve it in the Netherlands.
