A couple has been arrested in
Port Elizabeth for possessing and distributing child pornography.
The arrest came through the
help of the United States of America’s Federal Bureau of Investigations.
The police have also
established a task team to look into child pornography which has recorded a
number of successes recently.
Lieutenant General Solomon
Makgale said during an operation that was conducted between the SAPS, the
Belgian police and with the assistance of the United States of America’s
Federal Bureau of Investigation, the team, while searching the couple’s
residence in Port Elizabeth, found 15 hard drives, two cellular phones, 124
compact discs, two USBs, two cameras and one micro SD card.
Makgale said the couple, a
33-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman, already appeared in the Port Elizabeth
Magistrate’s Court on 17 March 2015 and were granted R5 000,00 bail each.
“They have been warned to
reappear in the same court on 24 April 2015” Makgale added.
