A man has appeared in the Prieska Magistrates Court, in the Northern Cape, on Monday for allegedly trafficking a female victim from Gauteng to the Northern Cape.
It’s alleged the suspect recruited the 22-year-old victim last month under the false pretense that she was going to get a job in Prieska.
Hawks spokesperson Nomthandazo Mnisi said the woman claimed that after she arrived, she was locked up inside a house, raped and continually assaulted.
“On Saturday, an operation was conducted by the Serious and Organised Crimes Investigation Unit and [they] arrested a foreign national for trafficking in persons.”
Mnisi said investigations were still ongoing.
