A Cape Town man was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment after he was found guilty on charges relating to child pornography.

Clinton Calder, a former broker from Fish Hoek, was sentenced last week in the Wynberg Regional Court after he was convicted of 3 195 counts of possession of child pornography, a count of distributing child pornography, a count of importing child pornography and a count of creating child pornography.

The court suspended two years of the sentence for five years on condition that Calder is not convicted of offences in terms of the Criminal Law (Sexual Offences and Related Matters) Amendment Act and the Films and Publications Act.

Calder was arrested on August 31, 2015 after having carried out his criminal activities from September 23, 2014 to June 7, 2015.

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said Calder was part of an international child pornography network and and was in possession of 3 215 images of child abuse.

The NPA has welcomed the sentence, stating that it shows its commitment to fighting for the rights of children, guaranteed by the Constitution.
