Bloemfontein – Alleged genital mutilator Peter Frederiksen and his co-accused Motlatsi Moqeti are expected to appear in the Bloemfontein Regional Court on Tuesday.  

Frederiksen, a Danish national, would have his High Court date finalised. The National Prosecuting Authority said the investigation of Moqeti’s case had not been completed yet.  

During their last appearance, Moqeti's lawyer withdrew from the case as he had not been paid. He was expected to apply for legal aid.   

Frederiksen, 63, was arrested on September 17, 2015 after 21 clitorises were found in the freezer of his Langenhoven Park, Bloemfontein, home. 

He faces charges including assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, possessing unregistered medicine, possessing unlicensed firearms, distributing and possessing child pornography, conspiracy to murder, and bigamy.

He is also being investigated for the murder of his wife, 28-year-old Anna Matseliso Molise. She was shot four times next to the gate of her house in Maseru, Lesotho, on October 20, 2015. She would have been a key State witness in the case against her husband, the Hawks said at the time.

Frederiksen allegedly hired the wheelchair-bound Moqeti, 31, to have Molise killed. He allegedly had contacts in the criminal underworld.

Frederiksen told the court previously that he learnt of his wife’s death through the media. The State told the court that a witness and phone calls linked Moqeti to the killing.

In May, the Hawks seized more than 1 600 firearms from Frederiksen’s gun shop in Bloemfontein. According to a police spokesperson, the firearms were confiscated on suspicion that Frederiksen might have used them for other crimes. About 75 firearms had no valid licences. Explosives and hand grenades were also confiscated.
