Durban - The bail application of three men accused of human trafficking and keeping a brothel was postponed by the Durban Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Prosecutor Val Dafel told the court she and the defence counsel had agreed to a postponement.

The three accused - Nonduzo Dlamini, 23, Bhabha Dubazini, 29, and Sandile Zweni - were arrested with a fourth person when 16 girls, eight of them minors, were rescued from a building in Durban's Point area.

Some of the girls were as young as 12, and some were allegedly under the influence of drugs.

The three face charges of dealing in cocaine, human trafficking, keeping a brothel, and living off the earnings of prostitution.

Charges against the fourth accused have since been withdrawn.

The bail application was postponed to April 25.
