Sex ring suspects to apply for bail

2012-02-20 13:26

Four men suspected of involvement in a child sex ring will apply for bail in the Durban Magistrates Court on Friday.
The State would oppose bail, Lieutenant Colonel Vincent Mdunge said.

They were arrested when 16 girls, eight of them minors, were rescued from a building in the Point area of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. They are accused of human trafficking.

Some of the girls were as young as 12 years 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 Magistrates Court on Friday. “They were remanded in custody.”
