The 56-year-old Uvongo man who was found in possession of about about 300 child pornographic pictures recently has been granted bail. He was released on R3000 bail when a bail application was heard on Monday in the Ramsgate Court.
The court heard that the man, who was arrested on 1 December, owns six properties, has no passports and therefore has no intention of fleeing the country.
He was arrested at his home during a crime intelligence operation by Margate Crime Intelligence and members from Durban Family, Child and Sexual Offences (FCS) unit – Serial and Electronic Crime Investigation. The case was postponed to 19 December for further investigation.
