A BUSINESSMAN and an aftercare worker appeared in court yesterday after the Hawks found thousands of pirated copies of pornography at their Uitenhage home. Etienne Slabbert, 48, and his wife Vanessa, 41, allegedly made a fortune downloading and selling X-rated films to the Nelson Mandela Bay community over a period of more than a year.
They made a brief appearance in the Port Elizabeth Commercial Crimes Court yesterday in the wake of the Hawks' swoop on their Uitenhage home. The case was postponed to next month in order for them to apply for Legal Aid representation.
In addition to the X-rated films, the couple allegedly sold pirated movies, computer programs, video games and music.
Their Venice Court home was raided by the Hawks, where copies of films such as Top Heavy, 18 and Ready, Sexy Chocolate XXX, Thick, Black & Stacked, and Black is Better were seized.
