Today, Jub Jub’s defence lawyer advocate Terrence Baloyi asked for another postponement. “I must place it on record that we have received further particulars which we had requested, they were not satisfactory, but I had a chat with my learned colleagues, and they said there’s nothing further that they can provide, therefore we will have to work with what we have, “said Baloyi.

He added that they have made a move to work by submission of facts which are based on a discussion he had with the stateState Prosecutor Agnes Bezuidenhout emphasised that she conversed with the defence and explained to him that they have furnished them with all the documents they requested. “I have indicated to the defence that we have given them all the information that we could, and he said they will request for a further postponement.
