Rodrigues case could go to ConCourt

The death of apartheid era policeman Joao Rodrigues means he may not be tried for the murder of anti-apartheid activist Ahmed Timol.

That’s according to his lawyer Ben Minnaar.  82-year-old Rodrigues died last night after battling with his health.

In June this year the Supreme Court of Appeal dismissed Rodrigues’ bid for a permanent stay of prosecution for Timol’s 1971 murder.

But Minnaar says despite his death they could still take their fight to the Constitutional Court.
