CT cops back in the dock for brutality
David Gunn and Gerrit Januarie are facing charges of assault.
CAPE TOWN - Two former Cape Town police officers accused of assaulting a man are back in court today.
Warrant officer David Gunn and Gerrit Januarie were identified in video footage in Cape Town's city centre in March.
Both accused are no longer working for the police service.
The Right 2 Know Campaign says the officers have failed in their duty to serve and protect.
"We have a situation now where instead of the police to protect the people and to make sure that the criminals are arrested, the police are now turning into criminals and beating up people."
In was previously reported that it appeared the Nigerian victim was assaulted before police got hold of him.
One of the accused is the owner of the bar.
