“We are busy with investigations,” spokeswoman Constable Kgomotso Maluleke told the 013NEWS reporter.
“For now we are collecting evidence and then afterwards we can effect arrest,” she said.
The 22-year-old woman, who is a student in one of the institutions of higher learning around the eMalahleni area, opened the case against the man on the Thursday afternoon of 8 March 2018 after the video he took while banging her went viral on social media.
The 013NEWS saw the video of the moaning woman and cops have described it as “painful on her image”.
“The last time we saw her she was even shy to go to school because all the people have got the video of her having sex,” the cops said. “He was trying to blackmail her with it and that’s bad,” the police said.
In WhatsApp conversations sent to 013NEWS as screenshots, the two lovers are breaking up and the man threatens to upload the video onto porn websites.
According to the docket, the man is charged with distributing “or exhibiting in public a film or a game without being registered with the Films and Publication Board as a distributor or exhibitor of films or games”.

And a compliance officer may enter any premises where this is produced, being distributed or exhibited and ask any person producing, distributing or exhibiting it to produce a certificate “issued by the board, and where relevant, a licence to conduct the business”.
Now the cops say they busy with the “chain” of people who got the video, allegedly from the man, “to conclude investigations and effect his arrest”.
