Ex-cop linked to Krugersdorp gang rape

Dolphina Louise Truter, a former warrant officer from the Krugersdorp police station, was released with a warning on Wednesday.

According to IOL, the NPA charged the 49-year-old with theft and defeating justice.

She was released on a warning and will return to court on November 28.

Truter was a warrant officer at the Krugersdorp police station, said Brigadier Muridili.

The investigating officer discovered the woman had rape victim’s property.

Muridili: “She was a warrant officer in Krugersdorp.”

Eight young women were gang raped near an abandoned mine on the West Rand, shocking the country.

Some victims were reportedly raped by three men.

Police have cracked down on illegal mining in Krugersdorp and other areas because the gang rape suspects are believed to be zama zamas.

One victim described the men who approached them as “evil” and wore balaclavas and mining overalls.

The incident prompted Police Minister Bheki Cele to act against the perpetrators, which led police to another major problem: illegal mining of abandoned mines.

The latest sting operation led police to Stilfontein in the North West, where they found 15 AK47s, six hunting rifles, two shotguns, one R5 assault rifle, 6,000 rounds of ammunition, and an undisclosed amount of cash.

20 illegal miners were arrested.
