An alleged suspect appeared in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court for trafficking in persons and possession of counterfeit goods on Monday, 22 February 2021.

It is alleged that in November 2020, a 34-year-old woman was lured from Cape Town to Johannesburg with promises of lucrative job opportunities.

The investigation revealed that the victim was held captive against her will at different lodges within the Johannesburg area since her arrival.

She was rescued during a disruptive operation conducted by Hawks’ Serious Organised Crime Investigation in Johannesburg, Randburg and Douglasdale police, last week Friday, 19 February 2021.
