Cape Town - The bail applications of three men accused of plotting and murdering lawyer Pete Mihalik will be heard in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court on Friday.
Prosecutor Helena Booysen will argue against the granting of bail to Sizwe Sinsokohle Biyela, 26, Nkonsinathi Khumalo, 31 and Cape Town-based taxi owner Vuyile Maliti.
She said that in the interest of justice and the fact that the three men are accused of a callous murder, bail should be denied.
Magistrate Greg Jacobs has set aside the day and indicated he wants to finalise the bail application by the end of tomorrow.
The trio are accused of gunning down Mihalik in broad daylight on October 30 last year while he was dropping off his children at Reddam House Atlantic Seaboard School in Green Point. Mihalik’s son was also injured during the incident.
