Nappy fetish love triangle twist

2009-08-29 00:00

A LOVE triangle that began on the messaging site MXit between a jealous Westville cop, a Cassanova with a penchant for being dressed in nappies and the jealous cop’s common-law wife got ugly this week when the contents of the several dirty nappies exploded in the Durban Magistrate’s Court.

Now police are bracing for a massive damages claim.

More than two weeks ago a 23-year-old man was arrested and illegally charged with crimen injuria and offences under the Telecommunications Act.

The man’s elderly father was called to Westville police station and told that his son had been arrested on child sex abuse charges.

However, the only case that had been opened against the man was one of having committed crimen injuria — and P.K. Naidoo, Durban’s senior public prosecutor, had already declined to prosecute on the grounds that there was no evidence that any crime had been committed. The arrest of the man, his detention at Westville police station, and the search of his Morningside home by the Westville policeman had been conducted without a warrant.

Weeks earlier, the policeman had posed as the investigating officer in a case of paedophilia and obtained a Section 205 court order from the Durban Magistrate’s Court for the 23-year-old’s phones to be secretly monitored and for this information to be supplied to him.

The warrant was for all possible types of data to and from the man’s phone to be secretly intercepted. SMS messages and MMS images to and from the phone as well as all calls, incoming and outgoing, were to be intercepted on the basis that the man was a suspected paedophile and posed a danger to children.

Such orders are seldom granted even for murder — unless police can convince the courts another murder is being planned.

However the man’s only offence was to communicate with the policeman’s common-law wife.

Colleagues of the policeman — described as “jealous”, and having a “very quick temper” — declined to discuss him with Weekend Witness.

Attempts to contact him failed. However, Weekend Witness can reveal that by using information obtained from his surveillance order, the policeman and several others trapped the nappy man inside a petrol station where he was arrested and publicly strip-searched.

Earlier this week, the managing director of SA Community Action Networks, Brian Jones, sent out a press release saying how he, the Hillcrest police crime prevention unit, the KZN provincial headquarters of the SA Police Service and private investigators stung a paedophile who had been soliciting underage girls to perform sexual acts on him.

Newspapers quoted the complainant, Bianca Hornsby, as saying she assisted the SAPS and Jones to entrap a paedophile who thought she was a primary schoolgirl when he asked her for sexual favours.

However, Hornsby’s own statement and affidavit — filed as A1 in the investigation docket — makes it clear she did not suspect the nappy enthusiast thought she was a child.

And her statement makes it clear the nappy man was not asking for sexual favours. She records that the man asked to be dressed in a nappy and babied — and specifically said he did not want any sexual acts performed. The alleged victim then offers this service: “plus all the trimmings” for R500.

When the nappy enthusiast suggests a meeting, the woman is reluctant, but when he suggests they break off communications, the woman begs him to go through with a meeting and repeatedly tells him she is prepared to dress him in nappies and “baby” him.

Throughout the statement there is no mention of children and it is very clear the nappy man is not interested in underage girls or any sexual acts at all.

However, after declining to prosecute the man for crimen injuria relating to the communications, Naidoo found the docket back on his desk with the 23-year-old man clearly traumatised, having been detained and threatened by the policeman and friends.

For the second time, Naidoo records on the docket that no crime has taken place and that the man has no crime to answer for.

Naidoo writes: “I cannot understand why the accused was arrested and detained.” He continues to write that the woman was a willing participant in the communication.

Contacted for comment, Hornsby said: “The detective handling this case was a constable and did not know what she was doing.

“I have loads of evidence against this man and he is obviously a pervert and a paedophile. You need to get your facts straight, my friend. I have spoken to Naidoo and I promise you the pig is going to be charged.’’

Naidoo said that on Tuesday he will be meeting the police to discuss several issues.

“I want to know who is who in the zoo and I want to know what PIs were doing getting involved …

“I am also not happy that a man has investigated a case where his girlfriend is the complainant.

“However, at this stage I don’t want to make any pronouncements.”
