Police Hunt Man Who Skipped Bail On Indecent Images Charges

Police have appealed for help in tracing 59-year-old Ali Hasan Soyer, who failed to appear for bail after he was arrested on suspicion of possessing/making indecent images of children.

Soyer is wanted for questioning by officers from the Met's Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command. 

Originally from North Cyprus, Soyer has links to south London having previously lived in Southwark. He was arrested by police in 2006 on suspicion of possessing/making indecent images of children.

He was subsequently bailed to return to a police station in November 2006, but failed to appear.

Detectives have pursued numerous lines of enquiry to try and trace Soyer over the years. Having exhausted these, they are appealing for the public's help to locate him.

Soyer featured on Monday nights Crimewatch programme.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Crimewatch line on 0500 600 600 or Met detectives directly on 020 8217 6446.
