Cyprian Okoro, 55, a doctor based in Streatham, south-west London has been charged with five counts of possessing pornography of a ‘grossly offensive, disgusting or otherwise obscene character’.
He was caught having ‘extreme’ pornography on his Samsung mobile phone including a video of a man having sex with a snake, a woman having sex with a dog, one of a man having sex with a snake and one of a woman having sex with a horse. Okoro has denied the charges against him.
According to reports, he appeared in the Old Bailey court where the jurors heard how he allegedly stored the images having received them via mobile messaging app WhatsApp.
The most grievous is that Okoro also possessed indecent images/video of a two-year-old boy.
Opening the trial, prosecutor Nicola Devas told jurors they would be spared from watching the videos as the question of whether they were indecent or extreme was not at issue.
The footage came to light when, on August 28 2013, Okoro’s Samsung phone was seized by police and examined by specialist officers from Norfolk Constabulary before being returned.
The forensic examination found three of the videos, including the one of a toddler, had been stored on a password protected specialist App or ‘vault’, the court heard.
In his police interview, Okoro said pictures would be sent to him on WhatsApp and automatically go into his photos gallery.
As the indecent video had been manually moved to the vault, Mrs Devas told jurors it was clear he had viewed it.
She said: ‘What we say is he has received videos on WhatsApp, downloaded on his phone and three specifically moved into a further password protected vault.’
The trial continues.
