Rights commission investigates strip club
There is apparently a section in the club called ‘The Library’ where dancers are paid for sexual favours.
CAPE TOWN - The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) has confirmed it has submitted a report to the Western Cape High Court following an investigation into a Cape Town strip club.
The Weekend Argus reports the commission compiled the document following an investigation into the human rights of exotic dancers at Mavericks Gentlemen's Club in the CBD.
There is apparently a section in the club called The Library where the "rich and influencial" people pay dancers for sexual favours.
The commission has confirmed the report was submitted to the High Court earlier this month.
The SAHRC says due to the sensitivity of the investigation, it can't release too much information at this stage.
The commission's Chief Executive Officer Kayum Ahmed said, "The South African Human Rights Commission has become aware of the fact that a report submitted to the High Court on the Mavericks matter has now become public."
In 2012 the commission carried out an investigation into claims of human trafficking implicating Mavericks.
Club bosses could not be reached for comment.
