Cape Town - Sentencing proceedings in the trial of nine men accused of dumping faeces at the Cape Town International Airport are expected to continue on Tuesday.

In February the group was found guilty of contravening the Civil Aviation Act in the Bellville Regional Court.

The men, including Ses'khona People's Rights Movement leaders Andile Lili and Loyiso Nkohla, allegedly threw faeces at the airport on June 25, 2013 and were involved in doing the same on the steps of the Western Cape legislature, in protest against portable flush toilets that the city was providing in informal settlements.

They were cleared of charges of contravening Cape Town's environmental health by-laws and the National Environment Management Act in December last year.
