Reportedly photographing his victims, placing their pictures on the Internet, and offering them for sale gained 32-year-old Christopher Paul Neil high-profile attention around the world.
Identified as “the world’s most wanted suspected paedophile,” the Canadian national was apprehended in the residence of a Thai friend who had set up the suspects activities with Thai children, according to police.

Thai police nabbed Mr. Neil in Nakhon Ratchasima, some 200 kilometres northeast of Bangkok, the Thai capital.

Police will hold a press conference in Bangkok later Friday to reveal details of the matter.

The Canadian school teacher lived in Thailand for about two years from 2002, according to police. An arrest warrant was issued Thursday for Mr. Neil who is thought to have had illicit sexual relations with boys in Thailand, as well as with more than ten Cambodian and Vietnamese boys, some only six years old, according to Interpol.

Three Thai boys came to Thai police claiming Mr. Neil had abused them and showed them pornography on his computer.

The teacher has reportedly taught at several schools in Thailand, South Korea and Vietnam.
