Cape Town - New evidence presented in the bail application of the three men accused of murdering Cape Town lawyer Pete Mihalik indicates that a total of 84 calls were made between the alleged killers the day before and on the day the murder was carried out.
Evidence submitted by state prosecutor Helene Booysen in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court on Friday contained a second affidavit compiled by investigating officer Charl Kinnear of the anti-gang unit.
The state has alleged the three accused, Zizwe Biyela, Nkosonathi Khumalo and Vuyile Maliti murdered Mihalik in broad daylight in Green Point on October 30 last year.
CCTV camera footage showed two shots being fired through the window of Mihalik’s luxury SUV at Reddam House in Green Point. Mihalik’s son was injured during the shooting, but his daughter escaped unscathed.
The state claimed that Biyela and Khumalo were brought to Cape Town from KwaZulu-Natal to carry out the hit, apparently ordered by Maliti, and was opposing bail.
