PRETORIA - The case against five Pretoria men accused of assaulting a black couple - Jacob Sono and his wife Dudu - at a KFC drive-through in Montana, Pretoria, was postponed after the defence asked the State to furnish them with outstanding particulars for the case.
One of the items includes a cellphone belonging to one of the accused which is believed to be in police custody.
State Prosecutor Lucri Shivambo said all the CCTV footage of the alleged assault had been handed over to the defence teams, but that information from a cellphone was still outstanding.
The matter will be heard on June 28 at the Pretoria North Magistrate’s Court.
Marius Harding, Stephan Nel, DJ van Rooyen, Ockert Muller and Joshua Scholtz are facing charges of attempted murder, assault with the intent to do grievous bodily harm, and the pointing of a firearm.
