Alleged clitoris collector's case postponed again

Bloemfontein – Danish national Peter Frederiksen and his co-accused, Motlatsi Moqeti, appeared briefly in the Bloemfontein Regional Court, where their case was postponed yet again on Wednesday.  

The State asked the court to postpone the matter to July 12 to finalise a High Court date, said National Prosecuting Authority regional spokesperson Phaladi Shuping.  

"For the second accused [Moqeti] investigations are still not complete – and his lawyer has also withdrawn from the case because he couldn’t afford him anymore. He will now apply for legal aid," said Shuping.    

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

He faces charges of assault with the intent to do grievous bodily harm, possessing unregistered medicine, manufacturing, supplying false information, possession of 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, who was gunned down outside her home in Maseru, Lesotho, following his arrest. 

Frederiksen allegedly hired the wheelchair-bound Moqeti, 31, to have Molise killed. He allegedly had contacts in the criminal underworld. Molise would have been a key State witness in the case against her husband. 

During cross-examination by Bester, Frederiksen told the court 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, More than 1 600 firearms were seized by the Hawks at a gun shop in Bloemfontein owned by Frederiksen. 

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 licenses.  

Explosives, including hand grenades and rock breakers commonly used for ATM bombings, were also confiscated.
