Photos Of Girls’ Link Severed
Dropbox has been used to share and store explicit photos.

Fiji Police spokesperson, Ana Naisoro said the investigation was of a “sensitive nature” and that some of the victims were reluctant to come forward to assist.

Dropbox has temporarily disabled the link to a public folder containing almost 900 explicit photos of unsuspecting young Fijian women.

The international file hosting service published on the disabled link: “the person who shared it [the link] has hit their daily limit of traffic or downloads.”

On their website, Dropbox also confirmed that the links which generate unusually large amounts of traffic are automatically banned.

The banning of the link comes almost two months after the Fiji Sun brought to public attention the nude images in a Dropbox folder in September.

This initial discovery of the folder was met with condemnation from the Ministry of Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation, Fiji Police Force, University of the South Pacific and Fiji National University vice-chancellors, and the Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre.

Sources confirmed the folder had remained online for months with continuous updates before its recent termination.

While investigations are underway, Police spokesperson, Ana Naisoro said the investigation was of a “sensitive nature” and that some of the victims were reluctant to come forward to assist.
