Johannesburg - Two police sergeants will appear in the Alexandra Magistrate's Court on Tuesday for allegedly raping a woman, the Independent Complaints Directorate said.

"The officers were expected to appear in the Alexandra Magistrate's Court today [Monday], but they could not as the matter was not put on the court roll," spokesperson Moses Dlamini said.

Earlier in the day, provincial police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Tshisikhawe Ndou said the two were to appear in the Randburg Magistrate's Court later.

The policemen, aged 28 and 43, were arrested last week and made their first court appearance on Thursday. The matter was then postponed for a formal bail application to be heard.

Ndou said the victim was allegedly stopped by the officers in Fourways, north of Johannesburg, while they were on duty on Friday December 2.

"She was pulled out of the front seat to the back seat where the officers allegedly took turns to rape her."

The woman laid a charge against the police that Saturday and the two were arrested.

      Having worked in the industry ... it wouldn't surprise me even slightly if not only the file went missing but also that the lawyer for the victims forgot to place the case on the roll :((

    If not being on the court role means that they couldn't apply for bail, then good. Let them rot in prison.
