    Neil could face up to 20 years in jail if convicted.

     

    The international search comes after German police discovered photographs on the internet three years ago of a man raping 12 boys in Vietnam and Cambodia.

     

    German police computer experts unscrambled the digitally swirled image in the photographs.

     

    It was the first time Interpol made a worldwide appeal to the public to find someone.
