Alleged child pornographer gets bail

2016-12-15 06:01

BAIL of R3 000 was granted to the 56-year-old Uvongo man found in possession of about 300 child pornographic photos recently.

The bail application was heard at Ramsgate Court on Monday.

The court heard that the man, who was arrested on 1 December, owns six properties, has no passports and therefore has no intention of fleeing the country.

He was arrested at his home during a crime intelligence operation by Margate Crime Intelligence and members from Durban Family, Child and Sexual Offences (FCS) unit - Serial and Electronic Crime Investigation.

The case was postponed to 19 December for further investigation.
