The Criminal Court yesterday sentenced a man to six months imprisonment after the court found him guilty of possession of pornography.
The Criminal Court identified the person as Ali Jinah of Gulhi in Kaafu Atoll.
The Court said the police officers who went to search Jinah’s house on last year October discovered eight magazines containing pornographic pictures, one file containing large number of pornographic pictures and one CD containing pornography.
He was sentenced for possessing contraband.

The Criminal Court said that according to the word of the police officers who went to the scene, “it is known that the materials were found inside Jinah’s room.”
