Human traffickers nabbed in Milnerton

Police recovered these items after a burglary in Milnerton.

Three people, including two foreign nationals, accused of forcing a woman to work as prostitute in Milnerton appeared in court last week.

Hawks’ spokesman Captain Lloyd Ramovha said the South African woman and a Nigerian man and woman faced charges relating to human trafficking.

They appeared in the cape Town Magistrate’s Court on Friday December 8.

It is alleged that a 26-year-old woman was lured from Johannesburg after being promised work by a woman she knows.

Two men picked her up when she arrived in Cape Town and allegedly turned her into a sex worker. She escaped after some time and alerted the Hawks.

The case has been postponed to Friday December 15.
