According to STUFF charges of possessing child abuse material against Kiwi corporate raider Sir Ron Brierley relate to more than 200,000 images and 512 videos, senior police sources have reportedly told the Sydney Morning Herald.
The investigation into Brierley, which led to him reportedly being charged with six counts of possessing child abuse material on Tuesday, was sparked by an anonymous tip-off, the Herald was told.
Australian media are reporting that Brierley, whose net worth is $220 million, has been arrested and charged with possession of child exploitation images.
New South Wales Police would not confirm that an 82-year-old man arrested at Sydney Airport was Brierley.
