Man charged in Perth over importation of child-like sex doll


Perth Airport.


A 26-year-old Singaporean national has been charged in Perth over the importation of a silicone sex doll made to look like a child.
The man, who is in Australia on a student visa, was arrested on Thursday following the search of a home.
Australian Border Force officers had earlier intercepted a parcel sent from China at a Perth air cargo depot on Christmas Eve.
The man has been granted conditional bail and is due to face Perth Magistrates Court on January 17.
"Child-like sex dolls are an emerging form of child abuse material that the ABF is determined to prevent from crossing our border," ABF Acting Commander Nicholas Walker said on Friday.
"Dolls that are manufactured for a sexual purpose that depict a child under the age of 18 are classified as 'objectionable goods' and are prohibited from being imported into Australia."
