Child pornographer acquitted due to double jeopardy
An accused involved in child pornography and sharing content on the dark web was acquitted by Lahore High Court’s Rawalpindi bench. The case was filed against Sohail Ayaz by the Federal Investigation Agency on March 3, 2020.
The court had previously reduced the convict’s three death sentences for pornographic videos and dark web activities to life imprisonment.
