Pretoria - The Pretoria North Magistrate's Court on Monday decided that the KFC assault case be moved to the Pretoria Regional Court due to the gravity of the charges.
Matters related to an attempted murder charge could not be heard at the court, it was said.
This followed the accuseds' November 9 appearance, postponed for a decision on whether it should be moved to the regional court or be heard at the magistrate’s court.
