‘Adv Barbie’ spends last weekend at home

2010-05-13 15:33

Convicted child molester Cezanne Visser, also known as advocate

Barbie, was expected to spend a last weekend at home, before reporting to

authorities on Monday to start her seven-year jail term.

The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) today dismissed Visser’s

application for leave to appeal her conviction in the High Court in


Visser was found guilty and sentenced for 11 sex-related charges,

including indecently assaulting two teenage girls and soliciting a teenager to

commit indecent acts; indecently assaulting two women and benefiting from the

indecent assault of a third; defrauding a children’s home and possession and

manufacturing of child pornography.

Visser’s lawyer Johan Engelbrecht said he spoke to his client and

they were disappointed by the appeal court’s decision. He said he received no

further instructions.

High court Judge Chris Eksteen refused Visser leave to appeal his

finding on the merits of the case.

He granted her bail of R10 000 pending the outcome of her

application to the SCA.

The high court found Visser had willingly associated herself with

and actively participated in the depraved sexual activities at her former lover

and co-accused Dirk Prinsloo’s house.

The court held that she had taken the initiative to approach children’s

homes to get young girls in order to sexually abuse them.

Her actions were consistently aimed at the sexual abuse of children

and women solely for the gratification of her and Prinsloo’s sexual needs, the

judge said at the time.

Prinsloo, who disappeared while on a business trip to Russia

several years ago, has in the meantime been arrested in Belarus for allegedly

attempting to rob a bank in that country.

Appeal Court Judges Mohamed Navsa and Belinda van Heerden presided

over the SCA application.

Visser had 48 hours to report to the High Court in Pretoria from

the moment she was informed of the SCA’s decision today. – Sapa
