He was facing 15 cases of indecent assault, five charges of persistent sexual offences with a child and four cases of sexual intercourse with a minor in Australia.

He was released on bail and in 2011 he travelled to Cape Town, South Africa and never returned to his country to face trial, but his sins followed him to Sea Point where he was hiding. In 2014 he was arrested, charged and sentenced after he was found guilty of sexual offences.

The 76-year-old Anthony Peter Freedendal was serving a sentence at Pollsmoor prison when he was arrested by Interpol members after receiving a provisional request from Australian Authorities in August this year.

Freedendal appeared in the Wynburg Magistrate’s Court last Thursday and his case was postponed to 4 October 2016 for formal request documents to be processed.
