Pakistan court announces first ever conviction in child pornography case

LAHORE - A Pakistan court on Thursday jailed a man for seven years in the country's first ever conviction for child pornography.

Sadat Amin was found guilty by a Lahore court of being part of a global child pornography racket spread across Europe and the United States.

Pakistan only criminalised child pornography, as well as sexual assault against minors, for the first time in March last year, following the passage of a bill in the Senate.
