|Crime and related||By late in July 1733 Gerrit Jacobsz: Coetzee had been arrested by Pieter Lorenz and interrogated twice in the presence of the commissioned members of the Council of Justice. Pieter Lorenz has also taken statements from Abraham le Roux, Johannes Lodewyk Pretorius and Domine. Domine, a Khoe woman also known as Caatje, was a seasonal vineyard worker. She made the most detailed statement and testified to observing penetration with a chestnut mare, while Pretorius and Le Roux said they observed Coetsé on the rump of a grey mare, moving as if he was engaged in a sexual act with the horse. But Lourensz would tell the CoJ that even though Domine's statement was detailed, that because she was a single eye witness, and an unbaptised 'Hottentot' testifying against a Christian, she could not take the oath and her account did not therefor have the same authority as the two white, baptised, burghers.6|
