Cape human trafficking case postponed

2011-11-04 17:51
Cape Town - The trial of two Chinese women facing charges including human trafficking and running a brothel was postponed in the Goodwood Regional Court on Friday.

"Due to the non-availability of an interpreter, the case has been postponed to November 11," the National Prosecuting Authority said.

At their appearance in Parow Magistrate's Court on Wednesday it was decided that they would appear in the Goodwood court for plea and sentencing agreements.

The two were arrested during a combined police and municipal vice squad swoop on a house in Marais Street in Goodwood, Cape Town, in February.

They face 13 charges including two of human trafficking for sexual purposes, two of involvement in human trafficking for sexual purposes and two of kidnapping.

Also, one charge of keeping a brothel, two of engaging sexual services of persons 18 years or older, two of procurement, one of owning or controlling a brothel and one violation of the Immigration Act.
