Child porn case postponed

2011-05-05 17:06

Pretoria - Nine family members accused of running a child pornography ring appeared briefly in the Pretoria North Regional Court on Thursday, the SABC reported.

The case against them was postponed to May 20.

The State asked for a postponement as it was still awaiting the finalisation of some affidavits and also waiting for permission from the national director of public prosecutions to add a charge of racketeering to the charge sheet.

The family faces charges of rape, indecent assault, sexual grooming of children and the manufacturing and distribution of child pornography.

Numerous children, including biological and foster children, were removed from the family's care and placed in places of safety.

    These scum of the earth dont deserve a trial, jail them in solitary confinement for the rest of their lives.

    Sick freaks! Get them out of our society! Those poor children will never lead a normal life - something like this will burn in the back of their minds for the rest of their lives. I don't think there is a harsh enough sentence for these freaks!

    Such sick people in this world. Those poor children - @1gascan, my prayer is that they will lead a normal life with help but most of all with prayers as our Heavenly Father is a God of miracles. I have been following this story and the comments and no - there is no sentence that is harsh enough especially for the mother who allowed this to happen to her children, don't know if you are aware that all the people guilty in this sory are family related, ie, mother, father, uncle, aunt, grandfather, etc

      I am aware, and it absolutely disgusts me to the core! We must pray for all of these children!
