Cape Town – Diep River police officer Stephen Jan said State witness Keenan Thomas "never had any misgivings” about his statement to the police.
This was heard in the Western Cape High Court yesterday as the defence team for accused wife killer Rob Packham started presenting their case.
Jan, who was the commissioner of oaths on Thomas’ statement, said Thomas also never returned to the police station to make a supplementary statement that he had not been happy with the first one.
Previously Thomas and his friend, Lance Govender, who were the first people to arrive at the scene at Diep River railway station where Gill Packham's blazing car was found, alleged they had seen Packham close to the scene in his white Audi SUV.
The defence took issue with the description Thomas had given police describing the suspect he had seen as “a mix between white and coloured aged between 30 and 35”.
