A pair of brothers who abused boys has been in Australia for more than a decade, authorities said on Thursday.
The two brothers, both aged 41, were arrested in Melbourne in August after an investigation by the state child protection agency.
Both are from the city of Wollongong, where the brothers were detained and the abuse took place, the Victorian Premier said.
“I am pleased the family of these two young men have been given some closure,” Mr Andrews said.
“This family deserves to be looked after.”
Police allege the brothers abused at least one boy and the second boy is believed to be one of their victims.
Police have not identified the victims.
The two brothers were jailed for two and a half years in March and the child protection officer overseeing the investigation is currently working on a report into their behaviour, the ABC understands.
A warrant was issued for the brothers’ arrest on Thursday, which was issued under the Children Act, which gives the state the power to issue warrants under certain circumstances.
An AFP spokesman said there were no known threats against the two brothers.
Anyone with information about the cases should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
