THE INDEPENDENT (UK): A man has appeared in court over allegations of horrific sexual abuse against women ahead of his bail application.
The case has attracted significant attention in South Africa and neighbouring Lesotho, where the allegations reportedly took pace, due to the disturbing nature of the abuse and the death of a key witness last month.
Peter Frederiksen, originally from Denmark, appeared in court in Bloemfontein, on Wednesday, facing charges of sexual assault, intimidation, domestic violence and contravention of the Medicines Control Act, the BBC reports.
The 63-year-old, was arrested in September after police found 21 packages containing suspected female genital parts, neatly labelled in plastic bags, at his home in South Africa following a tip-off.
Anaesthetic drugs and surgical equipment were also found at the house, according to police.
