A man has been charged in Australia over trying to import a silicone sex doll made to look like a child.

The 26-year-old Singaporean national, who is in the city of Perth on a student visa, was arrested on Thursday following the search of a home.

Australian Border Force officers had earlier intercepted a parcel sent from China at a Perth air cargo depot on Christmas Eve.

The parcel was x-rayed and allegedly found to contain a silicone female child-like sex doll.

The 26-year-old, who is in Australia on a student visa, has been charged with one count of importing goods, in contravention of Section 233BAB(5) of the Customs Act 1901.

The man has been granted conditional bail and is due to face Perth Magistrates Court on January 17.

‘Child-like sex dolls are an emerging form of child abuse material that the ABF is determined to prevent from crossing our border,’ ABF Acting Commander Nicholas Walker said on Friday.

‘Dolls that are manufactured for a sexual purpose that depict a child under the age of 18 are classified as “objectionable goods” and are prohibited from being imported into Australia.’

Last month, another 26-year-old man was arrested by Border Force officials at Perth’s Airport for allegedly trying to import parts of a child-like sex doll.

While returning from a holiday in Thailand, the man was stopped by police who seized a phone in his possession. 

Officers said the forensic examination of the phone uncovered hundreds of child abuse photos.

The man was charged with attempting to export a prohibited import and importing tier two goods, or child abuse material. 

He was granted conditional bail and is due to appear in the Perth Magistrate’s Court on December 13.
