Cape Town - The illness of one of three accused in the murder of gay night club owner Bruno Bronn delayed proceedings in the High Court in Cape Town on Tuesday.

Defence lawyer Arno Nell told the court that his client, Fareez Allie, was ill and at his request the case was postponed to Wednesday.

Tuesday's proceedings, before Judge President John Hlophe and assessor Jaco van Reenen, lasted only a few minutes.

With Allie in the dock are Frederick Willem John Coetzer and Achmat Toffa.

All have pleaded not guilty to a main count of premeditated murder, and another of robbery with aggravating circumstances.

If found guilty, the men face life sentences for the murder, and 15 years for the robbery.

The trial continues on Wednesday.
