We Mix Business with Pleasure.

ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada, Friday June 21, 2013 – The police  have detained a 31 year old security guard to assist with investigations  surrounding the distribution of child pornography photos on the social  media.

On Tuesday the Facebook accounts of several Grenadians were tagged with  photographs of a 16-year-old female student engaged in sexual acts. The matter  was reported to Facebook and the account with the photographs was  closed.

“The recent incident which sparked outrage among many social circles is  indeed of serious concern to the Police and as such, a clarion call is made for  perpetrators of young girls to dissuade from such practice,” the police said in  a statement issued on Thursday.

The police have vowed to spare no efforts in bringing perpetrators to justice  and urged parents to be more vigilant in supervising their daughters.

The alleged offender is likely to be charged with several counts of “sexual  intercourse with a female between the age of 13 and 16 years”. If found guilty,  he can face a maximum penalty of seven years in prison on each count.

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.
