Kimberley - Convicted politician John Block and his co-accused Christo Scholtz will enjoy a few more days of freedom despite the Supreme Court of Appeal's dismissal of their appeal against a 15-year sentence earlier this week.
The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) confirmed that no detention warrant had been issued for the duo pending their bail application at the Kimberley High Court next week.
The two were granted leave to appeal the SCA's ruling at the Constitutional Court.
The SCA on Tuesday had dismissed their appeal against a 15-year sentence for corruption and money laundering.
NPA Northern Cape spokesperson Phaladi Shuping confirmed that the duo's legal representatives have filed a bail application, which will be heard on Monday.
