Bloemfontein - The crimen injuria trial of the so-called Reitz Four was on Tuesday delayed in the Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court for unknown reasons.

State prosecutor Johan Kruger only arrived in court at 11:10 to organise setting up a screen inside court.

The men, RC Malherbe, Johnny Roberts, Schalk van der Merwe and Danie Grobler, are accused of humiliating five black workers - four women and a man - in an initiation-type ceremony in 2007 which they filmed while living at the University of the Free State's now-closed Reitz residence.

It was unknown what time the trial would start.
