Trafficking suspects to apply for bail
Durban - Four men accused of human trafficking and child sex will apply for bail in the Durban Magistrate’s Court on Friday, police said.
The State would oppose their application, Lieutenant Colonel Vincent Mdunge said on Monday.
The four were arrested when 16 girls, eight of them minors, were rescued from a building in the Point area, in Durban.
Some of the girls were as young as 12 and some were allegedly under the influence of drugs when they were rescued.
The girls were thought to have been used as drug mules and were to be shipped out of South Africa from Durban.
Mdunge said the four men briefly appeared in the Durban Magistrate’s Court on Friday.
"They were remanded in custody," he said.
