Alleged clitoris collector's case postponed

Bloemfontein – The case against alleged genital mutilator, Danish national Peter Frederiksen, and his co-accused Motlatsi Moqeti, was postponed by the Bloemfontein Regional Court on Friday.  

Prosecutor Amanda Bester asked the court to postpone the matter to June 15 for further investigation. She said she hoped this would be the last postponement before a high court date was set.

Dressed in green pants and a maroon fleece top, Frederiksen, 63, sat in the dock with his legs crossed and his spectacles around his neck, amid a heavy police presence.  

He was arrested on September 17 last year after 21 clitorises were found in the freezer of his Langehoven Park home in Bloemfontein.  

He faces charges of assault with the intent to do grievous bodily harm, manufacturing, distributing and possessing child pornography, conspiracy to murder, and bigamy.

He is also being investigated for the murder of his wife, 28-year-old Anna Matseliso Molise, who was gunned down outside her home in Maseru, Lesotho, following his arrest.

Frederiksen allegedly hired the wheelchair-bound Moqeti, 31, to have Molise killed. He allegedly had contacts in the criminal underworld. Molise would have been a key State witness in the case against her husband. 

During cross-examination by Bester, Frederiksen told the court that he learnt of his wife’s death through the media.

The State told the court that a witness and phone calls linked Moqeti to the killing.
