Peter Frederiksen, the Danish man arrested in Bloemfontein after female genitals were found in his freezer, will be back in court on 5 October for a formal bail application.

He appeared via audio-visual link (AVR) in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court yesterday, where members of the ANC Women’s League members had gathered, Bloemfontein Courant reported.

The 63-year-old man was arrested at his Langenhoven Park townhouse earlier this month on charges of sexual assault and crimes under sections of the Medicines Act.

Frederiksen is allegedly wanted in Denmark for illegal firearm transactions and there have also been allegations that he might be linked to the murder of two women in Lesotho.

Meanwhile, a Hammanskraal man accused of cutting his wife’s genitals is set hear his fate on Monday at the Moretele Magistrate’s Court.

Phuti Malema, 34, faces charges of assault and attempted murder. He is accused of mutilating his wife’s genitals with a knife in 2014, Rekord North reported.

In July, police spokesperson Warrant Officer Herman Moremi said Malema attacked his wife in front on their children because he believed she was cheating on him.

Malema pleaded guilty, but denied the knife he used was the one presented in court.
