In a voice note to his lawyer, Swart shared his experience of the incident.

"I think they hit me over the head, and they loaded me into a car, and I was in a boot for some time. They took me out and kicked me. I remember them saying they are going to break my hands or cut off my hands because I hit women. I didn't know where I was, and then they opened the boot and threw me out, so I don't know how they got to me."

Earlier in June, a video of Jaco Swart assaulting his wife at their family business went viral. Swart can be seen brutalising, pushing, punching, and kicking his estranged wife Nicoleen Swart in the 2018 video.

The video resurfaced after AfriForum's private prosecution unit released CCTV footage of the vicious attacks. The accused, Jaco Swart, pleaded guilty to charges of assault with the intent to do grievous bodily harm (GBH).

South Africans were outraged after he was sentenced to a R20,000 fine and a three-year prison sentence, suspended for five years, in the Pretoria North Magistrate's Court on 7 June.

According to Barry Bateman from Afriforum's Private Prosecution Unit, "the case is not going to go any further. The case is closed!"
