Malaysian charged with child pornography content in Australian court

PETALING JAYA: A 36-year-old Malaysian has been charged after Australian Border Force (ABF) officers allegedly found child exploitation material on his mobile phone at the Perth Airport.

The man was stopped by officers for a baggage inspection after he arrived on a flight from Kuala Lumpur on Friday.

Officers allegedly found abhorrent material, including a video depicting the sexual abuse of a child, during the examination of his mobile phone. He has since then appeared at the Perth magistrate’s court on Saturday.

Acting ABF Regional Commander for Western Australia Emma New­man said the ABF was committed to doing all it could to prevent the importation of abhorrent material into Australia.
