GAUTENG – Felix Christopher Eghan (32) appeared in the Randburg Magistrates Court for trafficking in persons and possession of counterfeit goods on Monday.
It is alleged that in November 2020, a 34 year old lady 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.
Police seized electronic gadgets for further investigation. Counterfeit goods consisting of luxurious time pieces, clothes, and perfumes worth approximately R100 000 were also confiscated.
Eghan was remanded in custody pending further investigation. The case is postponed to Monday, 01 March 2021. Investigation continues and outstanding suspects sought.
