Barbie 'was witch at the stake'

Cape Town – "The witch had to burn and the legal profession made sure that she did not escape the stake," writes Dr Johan Lemmer, a sexologist and former stepfather of Cézanne Visser (aka Advocate Barbie) who has penned a book about Visser's life and trial.

Visser is currently serving a seven year sentence on several counts of sex-related charges.

Dirk Prinsloo, the advocate with whom she lived while she was committing the crimes is currently serving out a prison sentence in Belarus for bank robbery.

According to Lemmer Prinsloo is a "sexual sadist" who succeeded in "turning an innocent girl into his own Barbie-doll slut within a couple of months".

Lemmer's book, Advokaat Barbie - Wat regtig gebeur het (Advocate Barbie – What Really Happened) is being released in Centurion on Friday and will be available in book shops shortly after.

The book follows the release of Visser's mother, Susan's book, Ek wil hê jy moet weet – sy bly my kind (I want you to know – she is still my child).


Lemmer's book differs vastly from his former wife's. In his book he writes explicitly about Prinsloo's sexual deviations. While no age restrictions have been imposed on the book, it does contain a warning about its violent and sexual content.

Lemmer said on Wednesday that the book is not "a story, but rather a documentary narration" of Visser and Prinsloo's relationship and the spectacular trial. Lemmer was involved with the trial as sexologist from the outset.

He mentions amongst other things, that what happened in Prinsloo's house "did not even come close to being kinky sex" but was the deeds of a "dangerous sexual sadist".

"Prinsloo's sexual lust was not limited to 'normal' intercourse. It was mostly forceful, fast, painful and emotionless."

      Are you of normal IQ? The author of this book wasn't involved in any crime and was never charged for anything. STUPID!!

    Nice. As if prostituting herself for free boobs and jewelry was not enough, her family get to prostitute her story for money. Guess we know where she got her character from.

    Innocent my eye ! Did the "Advocate" have no brains at the time or could she not think. Thank heavens she never defended me for anything criminal! What a B*tch !

    This is not entertainment news, criminals need to do their time and stay out of the media making them into a celebrity status. She was a highly qualified and educated person and knew her actions. Let her serve her time and concentrate on real issues that we face every day. Poor desperate journalism who obviously is too lazy to get off their ass and find real news.

  • johann.lemmer - 2011-09-30 08:56 Nobody can judge without first reading the documentary by Dr Johann Lemmer as professional adviser during the trial on what really happened - the media didn't report even half of what really happened.
