CAPE TOWN - The case against two former Cape Town policemen filmed assaulting a Nigerian man has been postponed in the Cape Town magistrates Court.

Warrant officer David Gunn and Gerrit Januarie were identified in video footage in Cape Town's city centre in March.

The video caused outrage after it went viral on social media.

The case was postponed to September in order for Januarie to settle an issue with his lawyer regarding his finances.

The accused face charges of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

Gunn was dismissed from the police service after disciplinary action was taken against him.

January resigned before he could face disciplinary measures.

The two were filmed allegedly punching, kicking and allegedly stripping the victim.

The two were released on R1,500 bail each.
