Former Pretoria advovate Cezanne Visser has pleaded not guilty to 14 charges of sexual abuse.<?xml:namespace prefix="o" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"?>

Visser and her former lover Dirk Prinsloo allegedly abused several women and children.

Her trial restarted after Prinsloo fled the country and the presiding judge died.

Visser’s lawyers told the court that they would call a range of experts to testify in her defence.

Several psychologists, psychiatrists and social workers will be called to the stand to explain how Visser was completely controlled and dominated by Prinsloo, who she claims forced her to help him abuse the women.

Visser’s defence has dramatically changed since Prinsloo was in the dock with her before he fled the country in 2006.
