Johannesburg - The family of a man who died when his Ford Kuga burst into flames in December 2015 have withdrawn from participating in the judicial inquest into his death.
This is after the family accepted that Reshall Jimmy had died in the vehicle but that the cause had been undetermined.
According to News24, Jimmy's sister Renisha said she made the decision after sitting through weeks of testimonies and listened to the findings of various witnesses provide theories of what could have caused the blaze the night her brother died.
A position paper submitted to the State and Judge Robert Henney by the Jimmy family and Ford SA states that it appeared to both parties that a finding of "undetermined" was inevitable, based on the procured evidence.
"We as a family accept that there is no evidence uncovered in the inquest thus far to suggest that my brother committed suicide, that he was murdered or that there was a Ford product failure in the vehicle of my brother on 4 December 2015," Reshall's sister Renisha is alleged to have said in an affidavit handed to the court.
