Canadian efforts for extradition proceedings were rejected and denied by the Israeli government.
On Monday, November 29, 2004, an officer of the Canada Border Services Agency assigned to the Toronto Police Service Fugitive Squad obtained an
Immigration arrest warrant for a 46-year-old Jew named Vitaly Levshin
In the early morning hours of Tuesday, November 30, 2004, Levshin was arrested and a search warrant was executed at his residence in Toronto. The
accused had approximately 3,000 child pornography images in his possession. About 2,000 of these pictures appear to have been taken by the accused or
associates of his from around the world. The pictures involve approximately 25 young boys either posing in various stages of undress, or involved in
sex acts with other boys or men. Several of the victims are believed to be living in Canada, Israel, Ukraine and Russia, but remain unidentified.
Chat logs, emails and documents recovered from the accused’s computer reveal that he was exchanging child pornography with men all over the world.
The accused and these men had discussions about having sex with children in Canada and elsewhere in the world, and discussed how to bring children
into Canada from other parts of the world.
