Six teenagers from the Mitchells Plain and Belhar areas have been arrested for allegedly producing and distributing child pornography by means of cellphones. The accused are between 16 and 18 years old.

Though the names of the accused will not be released as the charges relate to sexual offences involving minors, the production, distribution and possession of child pornography remains a serious criminal offence.

SAPS Detectives have also seized five cellphones, which would be sent to a forensic unit for analysis.

The boys are expected to appear before the Bellville Magistrates court on charges of rape and other charges in contravention of the terms of the Films and Publications Act.

Schools such as the Wynberg Boys' Junior School have advised the parents of their learners to make use of an SMS block system that prevents their children from downloading pornographic material.

One such service is the SMSWeb's Pornblocker service, which at a cost of R25 per SMS, and R150 per school per month, provides a service in association with adult content providers that prevents a child from receiving adult material for a period of one year.
