A new website in Iceland has published the names and photos of 50 men who have reportedly been charged for pedophilia, ruv.is reports.

The website also includes information on the cases and coverage in the media—and in some cases—where the individuals live. Users of the website are encouraged to send more information about the men.
Five of the men, represented by lawyer Vilhjálmur H. Vilhjálmsson, have complained to police. A message on the website states that the site’s operators are prepared to fight the case. The charges are under review, but a formal investigation has not begun, according to a police statement.
In October, a blog published the names and photos of 26 men charged with pedophilia. That site was closed prior to the new one going online.
There have also been complaints to police about a locked Facebook site, which has been operating for some time, with photographs and information about pedophiles in Iceland. The group has 11,000 members.
