Visser had 'own will'

2009-10-07 12:29
Pretoria - The North Gauteng High Court on Wednesday rejected claims by former advocate Cezanne Visser that she had no will of her own when involved in sexual acts with young girls and three women.

"The court finds that the accused now for convenience sake wants to hide behind Dirk Prinsloo's conduct to justify her own conduct and deeds," Acting Judge Chris Eksteen said in his judgment.

He found it unlikely Visser had not reconciled herself with her former lover's modus operandi to drug victims and then sexually abuse them. It was also unlikely that she had fetched three young girls from a children's home not knowing Prinsloo wanted to abuse them sexually.

Visser has denied guilt to 14 charges of fraud, soliciting minors to commit indecent acts, indecent assault, rape, possession and manufacturing of child pornography and the possession of dagga.

She claimed Prinsloo, currently in a Belrusian jail, had controlled her like a puppet and that she only carried out his orders.

Eksteen said if she had no will of her own, she would not have had fierce arguments with Prinsloo, apologised to one of the young girls, rejected all offers of help to get away from him and made false statements under oath to help him.

The judgment continues.
