Child Pornography

De Reuck v Director of Public Prosecutions and Others (2002/2003) DFL testified for the State on the effects of pornography on the brains, minds and memory of those looking at it. This decision was confirmed by the Constitutional Court. Deputy Chief Justice Langa (now Chief Justice) held that “Child pornography is universally condemned for good reason, it strikes at the dignity of children, it is harmful to children who are used in its production, and it is potentially harmful because of the attitude to child sex that it fosters and the use to which it can be put in grooming children to engage in sexual conduct”.  ]]>
