Father in court over hiring strippers for son's party
A 45-year-old man has appeared in a South African court for allegedly arranging three strippers for his son’s 16th birthday party attended by up to 20 teenagers, Beeld reported on Thursday.
Prosecutors claim the teenagers were drinking alcohol at the celebrations at the boy’s parental home in March, and that minors were allowed to touch the strippers, who were apparently completely naked at one stage.
The businessman, facing charges under sexual offences legislation, handed himself over to police and appeared in court in Middelburg in Mpumalanga on Wednesday.
He was granted bail of R2Â 000.
The strippers, in their twenties and thirties, and a 26-year-old man from Pretoria who apparently helped organise the party, have all appeared in court and are out on bail.
The father also faces charges of illegally possessing explosives allegedly found at his home during police investigations. â€’ Sapa-AFP.
