Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
he only ordered entirely legal pictures from a Canadian nudist site

What I read last (after the state prosecutor made the accusations public) was that it was a bona fide child pornography site taken out last year (so he wasn't netted by internet surveillance but in the records of the site, along with 800 other Germans), but Edathy only ordered 10 items of "class 2" pornography which showed no abuse just full-frontal naked children. The state prosecutor also said that they decided to prosecute after seeing other prosecutors bringing charges against other German purchasers of "class 2" material, and ordered the searching of his home based on experience that people caught for that also have "class 1" material at home. But they found nothing much, possibly since he was informed and apparently destroyed hard drives.
