Trial – (Bail Application) – Tharina Human, Laetitia Nel, Pieter van Zyl
From court case to trial
Human, Nel and van Zyl appeared in court today to start with their bail hearing. Constable Clayton Motloung gave evidence, explaining the difficulties in tracing the getaway vehicle due to the number plates of the vehicle having been removed. He went into some details regarding how the suspects made contact with Amy’Leigh’s father, which led the police to a plot outside Vanderbijlpark where they found one of the accused.
Further investigations lead them to a second house (Nel’s house) where police found all three accused together. SAPS also recovered a firearm and a fourth suspect who fled the scene. The case was postponed until the 1st of October when the accused will appear to present their affidavits to explain why they should be granted bail.
