Joao Rodrigues case postponed again
This year marks the 50th of anniversary, of the death of anti-apartheid activist, Ahmed Timol, and his family is still fighting for some kind of justice.
The bail of former policeman Joao Rodrigues, who is charged with his murder, was extended yet again today.
As the judge vented his frustration at the fact, that the outcome of the 80-year-old's appeal, to the Supreme Court is still pending.
That appeal was heard virtually on the 6th of November.
Ahmed Timol was killed in 1971 while in police detention, at the notorious John Vorster police station in Johannesburg.
Police claimed that he had thrown himself out of a window.
The late Ahmed Timol’s nephew, Imtiaz Cajee, joined us on Tuesday to talk about the latest delay in this trial.
