Pretoria – The case against two farmers who allegedly handcuffed a nine-year-old girl to a tree, before beating her and shooting at her, will now be transferred to the Regional Court in Pretoria for security reasons.

The State on Tuesday brought an application before the Bronkhorstspruit Magistrate’s Court to have the case against Johannes Potgieter, 33, and Hendrick Dumas, 48, transferred to the Regional Court following protests last year after members of the community found out the two men had been released on bail.

Me thinks that Johannes and Hendrick are pretty deep into it and won’t see their farm again anytime soon...

no doubt the same bleeding hearts who abhor death or too much discomfort for these types of savages would be out in full force again

There is no acceptable excuse for this type of behaviour. And too lazy to read the article. But do the men have an excuse for doing this? If so, what is it?

Hopefully these two get the full might of the law thrown at them. What they did was sick,stupid and inhumane and should get worse than I think they will get through the courts.

Tied to a tree, beaten and shot at: Girl, 9, testifies in case against farmers

More than two years since their arrest, the trial of farmers Johannes Potgieter, 33, and Hendrick Dumas, 48, who allegedly handcuffed a 9-year-old girl to a tree before beating her and firing shots at her, is finally under way.

At the start of the trial in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court last week, Potgieter and Dumas pleaded not guilty to several charges.

The girl was the first State witness to take the stand and she is testifying in camera (behind closed doors) because she is a minor.

She continued testifying on Wednesday but members of the media and the public were barred from attending.

Both farmers have been charged with kidnapping, assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm and the unlawful pointing of a firearm.

Potgieter faces four charges of attempted murder as he allegedly shot at the victim, her 11-year-old brother and two of their friends.

Dumas faces two attempted murder charges.
