He said he knew he was sought across the country for crimes including murder.
Soobramany described Bester as a danger to society, saying what he had done had caused trauma to his victims, which would stay with them for the rest of their lives.
Bester, who used aliases including Thomas, was arrested last Wednesday in Alberton, south of Johannesburg.
He was dubbed the “Facebook rapist” because he used social media to lure women. He told them international modelling scouts were interested in them and then met them in person. Bester would then rape and rob them at knifepoint.
He was expected to be taken to Gauteng at the weekend to face other charges there, including murder.

The tide is currently turning for the South African economy. Although it’s still too soon to speak of another recession, we are certainly more defenceless than three years ago, at the time of the last recession.
This is the disturbing news coming from the August Sake24 and BoE Private Clients provincial barometers.
This unique index measures the economic performance of five provinces and shows that their economies contracted by an average 4.3% in the past quarter.
“The provincial barometer levels are the lowest since December last year and clearly show that South Africa is currently experiencing a contraction, aggravated by rising prices and inflationary pressure,” said Mike Schüssler of Economists.co.za, who compiled the barometers.
Earlier this week Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan acknowledged that the growth forecast in his budget speech earlier this year might have been overly ambitious, in the context of current global financial problems. He predicted 4% growth over the next three years.
