FBI continue work with SAPS on case of alleged child porn mom​

Cape Town - The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have confirmed they are part of continuous investigations taking place in South Africa and that suspects are tried and prosecuted by the country's law enforcement agencies.

Nick Hersh, the media representative of the US Embassy in Pretoria, where the FBI has offices, spoke to Weekend Argus after the publication broke the news of the arrest of a 32-year-old Bonteheuwel mother who allegedly sold naked photographs of her 4-year-old daughter on the dark web.
An agent from Homeland Security pretended to be a buyer and traced her to Bonteheuwel via geotagging after she allegedly received payments through online pay platform PayPal.

That's what made me think of entrapment. I can't believe a mother would come up with this idea and promote it. Well I can believe it, I just don't want to! Makes more sense to me that someone made an offer to her
I wish I could agree with you. There are seriously broken people out there and it's global, South Africa being no exception.

A few years back we worked a case of young underage girls from the Cape selling their pics on a certain website. You'd think the parents wouldn't know. Many did. It was a simple progression of the selfie fad.

We had an incident a few years ago, out Onderstepoort way. I see they were recently sentenced. https://www.iol.co.za/pretoria-news...en-drugs-e04fe2ec-64e6-4e17-a07c-93ceaf216e63
