Johannesburg - The case against one of six men accused of involvement in a child pornography syndicate was postponed in the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

The grey-haired man stood quietly in the dock during his brief court appearance.

The matter was postponed to 5 November for the report of the cyber crimes unit to be received. His bail was extended until the next court date.

He was one of six men arrested on 15 August, after police received a tip-off from Interpol.

The six, from four provinces, were arrested for possession of child pornography.

The accused were arrested in Lichtenburg, Bloemfontein, White River, Douglasdale, Florida, and Potchefstroom.

The six are a lawyer, a dermatologist, a businessman, two teachers, and a retired school principal.
Police raided several homes in various provinces in August.

Among the items seized were 672 DVDs, 22 memory sticks, eight laptops, two computer tablets, 39 external hard drives, and 25 books containing child porn pictures.
