CHENNAI: The Madras High Court on Friday stayed the conditional bail granted by a Magistrate Court here to W. Williams alias Wilhelmus, a Dutch national who was arrested in November last year on charges of uploading pornographic pictures of children on the Internet.

When the case came up for hearing before Justice C.S. Karnan, Public Prosecutor A. Saravanan submitted that the bail had been granted as Williams had suppressed earlier dismissals. There was a delay in filing the chargesheet as the opinion of the scientific analyst could not be obtained in a short time. The Dutch national had taken advantage of this.
