Man charged with importing ‘child-like sex dolls’ into Australia

A Chinese national has been charged with allegedly importing two child-like sex dolls into Australia.

Australian Border Force officers intercepted one of the silicon dolls in an air cargo consignment from China on June 18.

A raid on a Toorak property in Melbourne last week uncovered a second doll along with a number of electronic devices.

The 20-year-old man appeared in court on July 26 charged with two counts of importing Tier 2 goods.

He’s due to make a second appearance in November.

ABF Investigations Commander Graeme Grosse said detections of this nature emphasise the role the ABF plays in protecting the community.

“Tackling child exploitation is an operational priority for the ABF, and we are committed to stopping the movement of these products across the border,” Commander Grosse said.

“The importation of child-like sex dolls and other child exploitation material is of significant concern to the ABF, and we are committed to pursuing those attempting to import such items.”
