The Supreme Court of Pakistan has rejected the bail application of a man accused of involvement in spreading pornographic videos of children on social media, saying that people involved in this crime do not deserve bail.
While rejecting the bail application of the suspect, the apex court directed the trial court to announce its decision in the case at the earliest. The top court also said that child pornography is a leading cause for child sexual abuse and causes devastation in the society. The bench added that child pornography threatened the future and morality of the children in the country.
The counsel for the suspect had argued that no affected party came forward against his client, an argument the bench said was not admissible.
The verdict was written by SC judge Justice Shafir Ali Akbar Naqvi.
