2014-08-01 06:19

Durban - The trial of a Durban doctor accused of running a brothel with young girls is expected to continue in the Durban Regional Court on Friday.

Dr Genchen Rugnath is charged along with his wife Ravina, Sandile Patrick Zweni, Nonduzo Dlamini, and Bhabha Dubazini.

They have all pleaded not guilty to 156 charges, including assault, rape, sexual exploitation of a child, and racketeering.

Last month, the court heard testimony from a young woman who was lured into prostitution in 2010, when she was 14 years old.

The woman, who cannot be named, told the court she had not tried to flee the Victoria Lodge in Durban from where she worked because "everyone was happy and we were getting free clothes".
