ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada, Wednesday June 19, 2013 – Grenada police Wednesday said they were investigating the distribution of child pornography photos on social media.

“This matter about the student was drawn to our attention and is presently being probed by the relevant departments,” said head of the Community Relations Department, Assistant Superintendent of Police Dunbar Belfon.

The photos on the Facebook site shows a 16-year-old female student engaged in sexual activities and while Grenada does not have laws regarding the distribution of sexual materials on the internet, the island has signed and ratified several United Nations convention including the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the Sale of Children.

In addition, Section 179 of Grenada’s Criminal Code states allows for a jail term of five year for anyone engaged in any sexual activity with a female under the age of 16  “with or without her consent”.
