Bloemfontein – The bail application of Peter Frederiksen, the Danish national accused of collecting clitorises, was postponed in the Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

Frederiksen has been charged with sexual assault and crimes under sections of the Medicines Act after 21 clitorises were found in his freezer.

The State is also expected to add new charges including manufacturing child pornography, distributing child pornography, possession of child pornography and two counts of conspiracy to murder and bigamy.

On Thursday, the media was not allowed in court for the testimony of a second witness in the bail hearing.

Prosecutor Amanda Bester requested the hearing be held in camera and the defence had no objection. The magistrate ordered the media and public out of the gallery.

Frederiksen allegedly sliced off the sexual organs and kept them in the freezer as trophies.

Last month his wife, Anna Matseliso Molise, 28, who assisted the police with information about him, was shot dead in her home country Lesotho, in what the Hawks described as a hit.

The case was postponed to November 12.
