Cape Town - The case of a foreign stripper who allegedly worked illegally at the Mavericks Revue Bar in Cape Town was postponed on Friday.

The Cape Town Magistrate's Court was to have heard the exact charges faced by Olga Gretu, 33, but the prosecution seemed confused and could not provide an answer.

The case was postponed for a final time, until October 19, for the State to hand over a charge sheet to
Gretu's defence and to secure a Moldavian interpreter.

The blonde stripper sat quietly with her hands folded throughout the proceedings.

She was arrested in November last year together with 12 other strippers.

Charges were withdrawn against all of the women but Gretu.

The withdrawn charges alleged that the women had failed to comply with the Immigration Act, by remaining in South Africa after their temporary residence permits had expired.
