Revenge porn has landed a 31-year-old Namibian man in cuffs this weekend after he was arrested for leaking a sex tape he filmed with his former married lover.
The complainant, who cannot be named, opened a case against the jilted ex-lover after he leaked the video filmed without her consent during October 2016 on social media last week.
According to the woman who lives in Ondangwa, in the Oshana Region of northern Namibia, the man allegedly filmed the sexual encounter with the intention of blackmailing her.
She on condition of anonymity said she was married, however separated from her husband since May this year and decided to go back to her ex, the suspect.
She has since fixed her marriage when the sex tape was leaked on social media.
“I did not know that he was filming me. He earlier also threatened to destroy my life if I didn’t satisfy his needs,” the woman said.
She added that she also in June this year demanded that she pay him N$15 000 which she refused. As a result, he leaked the video which according to her, she had no knowledge about it.
Spokesperson for the Oshana police, Inspector Thomas Aiyambo confirmed the arrest over the weekend and that the suspect is expected to appear today in court, Monday September 14, 2020.
