A doctor from Sydney’s south-west has been arrested and charged with watching and downloading child abuse videos on the internet, according to The Daily Telegraph.
The GP, Thrasivoulos Triantopoulos, was charged after having his home in Rouse Hill raided by detectives on September 6.
Police allege he was caught using the Peer 2 Peer app in June earlier this year to watch and download the child abuse material.
The Daily Telegraph said the 54-year-old worked at Eagle Vale Medical Centre prior to being arrested and was remanded in custody for two months before being granted strict bail in the Supreme Court last week.
Dr Triantopoulos is now required to live at a specific address, report to police four times a week and has a curfew between 10 pm and 6 am.
The former Eagle Vale Medical Centre doctor has also been banned from practicing as a doctor, is not allowed to work or volunteer anywhere involving children and cannot approach or go within 50 metres of any school, childcare facility or playground.
Dr Triantopoulos’ case will return to the Penrith Local Court on December 8.
