The Family Policy Institute is demanding that Parliament urgently finalises and passes the Prevention and Combating in Trafficking in Persons Bill.

This follows the revelation by child protection group Molo Songololo that a mother who was told that her daughter was sexually involved with a police member in Nelspoort helped uncover a child sex ring in the small Karoo town.

Five girls aged between 12 and 15-years were involved.

Molo Songolo’s Una Wentzel says six men, including three police members, will appear in the Beaufort West Magistrate’s Court tomorrow.

It is alleged that some of the girls had been kidnapped in the Free State.
