Durban - A woman has turned to the courts to stop her abusive boyfriend from publishing explicit photographs and video footage of her on social networking sites and the internet.

The woman told the courts that her boyfriend had been physically and emotionally abusive towards her and that when she wanted to end the relationship, he threatened to post intimate photographs and of her, reported the Daily News.

The woman, who was not identified, said the man had assaulted her in front of other people, had verbally assaulted her ill mother, and had a string of criminal cases pending against him. She said she feared he may carry out his threat of killing her.

The man was ordered by the courts not to publish any intimate footage of her and was ordered to stay away from her. He also had to hand over all photographs and videos to the court.

The 22-year-old woman said she was desperate to end the relationship permanently.

“I am only in this relationship because I am afraid of the consequences if I end it,” she said.

Police said there has been a trend of women being threatened with explicit pictures, and warned women not to expose themselves to blackmail.
