Interpreters needed for strip club case

2012-03-07 09:26
Cape Town - The case against 11 Cape Town strip club dancers accused of contravening their work permit conditions was postponed in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court, according to a report on Wednesday.

Their defence team stated they needed interpreters for six different languages as only Romanian had been accounted for, according to the Cape Times. The other languages include Bulgarian, Spanish, Russian, Thai and Ukrainian.

Defence attorney Pete Mihalik said he wanted access to the affidavit used to execute a search warrant of the strip club Mavericks, where the women were seized.

He would challenge the search warrant as its execution appeared to be irregular.

Last November, 18 dancers were arrested in terms of the Immigration Act.

According to the report, one dancer pleaded guilty and charges were dropped against four others. A case against two of the dancers was stood down for further investigation.

The case would resume for plea and trial on April 23.
