The case of a Cape Town mother who was arrested for allegedly selling pictures of her naked four-year-old daughter on the dark web was rescheduled on Wednesday .

The woman appeared in the Bishop Lavis magistrate's court and asked to remain anonymous in order to protect her minor child.

The case has been postponed until 20 December for an indictment and summary of facts, according to NPA spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila.

An FBI trap led to the woman's arrest.

"The FBI found this on the internet, and a Homeland Security agent posed as a buyer and used geotagging to track her down to Bonteheuwel," Ntabazalila explained. "She got paid through PayPal."

Angus McKenzie, a councillor in Cape Town, was not pleased with the postponement.

“It is worrying that for months there is no decision on the charges that are to be brought against the mother. What message does this send to other perpetrators of gender based violence - that it is OK? That your case will go on for months and months without any conclusion while your victim suffers.”

McKenzie urged the prosecution to speed up the case.

“This matter must draw to a conclusion, a court date must be decided upon and charges must be brought,” he said.
