Cape Town - Three men accused of the murder of top advocate Pete Mihalik appeared in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Thursday where their bail application was postponed until next year.
Sizwe Sinzokohle Biyela, 26, Nkosinathi Khumalo, 31, and taxi business owner Vuyile Maliti, 35, are being kept in different prisons for their own safety, and this caused a lengthy delay as prison officials failed to get them to court on time.
Unlike their previous court appearances, in which they were placed on the court roll first, they were only brought to court shortly before the lunch adjournment.
Mihalik, 50, was shot in the head at point-blank range on the morning of October 31 as he dropped his children off at their private school Reddam House in Green Point.
Mihalik's eight-year-old son sustained a gunshot wound to his jaw, but has since recovered. The advocate's teenage daughter, 17, who was in the back seat, was not injured.
