Johannesburg - The trial against Dr Genchen Rugnath, his wife Ravina and three others accused of charges related to human trafficking continues in the Durban Regional Court on Tuesday.

The SABC reported on Monday that the State had been granted an in-camera testimony for one of the witnesses.

The 18-year-old girl testified behind closed doors.

The accused were arrested after police conducted a raid on a lodge owned by the Rugnath couple in Durban's Point area early last year.

The other three accused are Sandile Patrick Zweni, Nonduzo Dlamini and Bhabha Dubazini.

All five have pleaded not guilty to 156 charges, including assault, rape, sexual exploitation of a child, and racketeering.
