#Durban-Child porn suspects in court

Three Durban men, who were arrested at the beginning of December on child pornography charges, appeared in the Durban Magistrate's Court on Friday.
The men were arrested during a swoop by SAPS and the US Department of Homeland Security, after a child pornography website was red-flagged when one of the suspects, a 29-year-old from Pinetown, accessed the site.
After his arrest, he spilled the beans on the other two suspects, a 47-year-old man from the Bluff and a 35-year-old from Waterfall, who were subsequently arrested.
The 29-year-old was released on bail, while the 47-year-old has also been charged with rape, sexual assault and grooming a 6-year-old child for pornographic purposes.
On Friday, National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Natasha Kara said the case had been postponed until July for a cyber crime report and further particulars.
* The suspects are not being named because they have not pleaded.
