A South African farmer is on trial for allegedly forcing his worker to drink faeces.

According to reports, the farmer also attempted to drown the man in a septic tank.

The South African Human Rights Commission initiated court proceedings after the man’s tale – and those of other alleged abuses on the farm in Springs, Gauteng province – first emerged in January.

According to Buang Jones, the Commission`s Gauteng provincial manager, the farmer, his wife and son are all under police investigation for the incident, facing possible charges of kidnapping and attempted murder.

However, the criminal matter has been postponed until June pending further inquiries.

Meanwhile, the SAHRC has begun proceedings in the Equality Court on behalf of the victim, seeking a public apology and compensation.
