Cape Town – The 23-year-old suspect alleged to have murdered Ukranian businessman Ivan Ivanov appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court yesterday where the case was postponed to August 21 for a bail application.
Sinaye Mposelwa has been charged with murder and robbery with aggravating circumstances following the attack on Ivanov, 44, at the East Fort on Chapman’s Peak Drive at the weekend.
Mposelwa’s two alleged accomplices are still being sought by police.
The court yesterday heard from prosecutor Nicky Konisi that Mposelwa had another case pending against him.
By yesterday more than 3 000 people had signed a petition calling for Mposelwa’s bail to be denied.
