Massive’s 3D Busted for Porn

Robert Del Naja free after questioning on porn, drug charges

Massive Attack frontman Robert Del Naja is denying ever having
looked at child pornography on the internet after his arrest in
connection with alleged class A drug and Web porn offenses.

British police raided his Bristol, England, home Tuesday as part
of Operation Ore, the same international child pornography sting
that netted Who guitarist Pete Townshend last month. They came away
with computer equipment and substances suspected to be drugs, and
detained Del Naja for six hours of questioning. Del Naja, who
records and performs with Massive Attack as 3D, has not yet been
charged, and is now free pending further inquiries.

In Britain, Class A drugs include ecstasy, cocaine, methadone,
heroin, L.S.D., and amphetamines. Possession can carry a seven-year
prison term. A conviction for possession of child pornography could
carry a five-year sentence.

“I am fully cooperating with police and I would ask everyone not
to judge me prematurely,” Del Naja said after his release. “I have
total faith in the justice system.”

Massive Attack’s latest album, 100th Window, is
currently in the U.K. Top Ten, and Del Naja has recently been an
outspoken public opponent of the possibility of war with Iraq.
